We do have horses, dogs, and chickens onsite at our barn, and visits with the animals can be arranged! We are a friendly, drama free family and look forward to making your visit as comfortable as possible.

  • Very accommodating

  • Amanda's studio was a perfect respite for me... my visit required daily travel late into the evening and I was always grateful to return to my home away from home where the space was comfortable and cozy, but very spacious. Spacious enough so I could easily practice yoga or simply spread out in every direction. Amanda is generous with supplies and offers treats and coffee. Though this trip needed to be done in the winter I would love to return to this wooded property in the spring or fall.

    Ann2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place away from the cities but yet not too far. Clean. Nice host. Responds very quickly and accommodates your needs quickly. Thank you for opening your home to me and my 2 fur babys!!

    Carolyn2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amanda was very helpful and prompt in responding to my questions and we were so looking forward to staying at her place, but because of blizzard conditions and freezing rain it was not the safest choice for us to travel. Amanda was very understanding and even gave us a refund for part of our scheduled stay, which she was not required to do under her cancellation policy. Thanks Amanda and we hope it works for us to stay at your place sometime in the future! D Tunby

    Darinda2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really great spot with lots of great and thoughtful amenities throughout. We appreciated the bottled water and clear signage. Check-in instructions were very straightforward, and Amanda was very easy to communicate with. Our stay was brief, but we would definitely come back and would recommend this place to anyone. The morning sunrise through the trees was lovely! Thanks for having us!

    Entire lower level with your own separate entrance. Spacious bedroom with queen bed and large closet and dresser. Family room w/kitchenette area and wet bar for simple dining. Bathroom with waterfall shower head. Screened in porch furnished w/table & chairs for relaxing and enjoying secluded wooded area. Walking distance to quaint shops, brewery, ice cream shops & restaurants in Excelsior. The town overlooks Lake Minnetonka which offers swimming, kayaking, SUP rentals and miles of bike paths.

    Just off of hi way 7 but as you wind along Christmas lake to the townhouse, you’ll find a totally wooded and secluded area.
  • Kris was a very gracious host and quick to respond to any needs or questions. This was a work trip/visit grandkids and having a quiet place to retreat was sublime. Wonderful location and loved watching the birds 🐧🐦in the feeder outside of the patio .

    Kristin2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We spend most of the year in Air BnB and short term rental accommodation. Kris’s place was cozy, exceptionally clean and comfortable. We struggled a bit with the lack of a full kitchen but worked around this by buying a cheap electric frying pan. The apartment is very private, the linen and utensils are all in good condition. There is ample lighting and for us, we found the location perfect for everywhere we needed to be. We did find the steps down to the apartment slippery in the rain and when the Fall leaves stacked upon them. Kris is a fabulous host, she responses quickly to messages and problem solves any situation which arose quickly and effectively. The area is quiet and appealing for walkers. We recommend Kris’s apartment.

    A & J2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • Kris is a great host. The place was sparkling clean. She is quick to response. I love the private entrance. It was quiet, relaxing, and just what I needed!

    Anna2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to spend 2 months helping out with grandkids.

    John2019-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Kris's place is impeccably clean, well appointed, with good afternoon light and lots of lamps to light up the space after dark. The bed is very comfortable. There are always clean sheets, and luxurious Pottery Barn towels for your use. Plenty of space in the bathroom for your items as well as ample closet space for all of your clothing and accessories. The efficiency kitchen is more than adequate to prepare meals if you choose. Lovely, woodsy view is serene and inviting. It's within walking distance to downtown Excelsior which is a treat year 'round! All in all, a delightful stay!!

    Susan2018-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Kris is an awesome host and you’ll be sure to enjoy this cozy townhome in Excelsior! Very clean, easy to access, and comfortable all around but what made my experience truly great was how kind, welcoming, and friendly Kris was! She is so easy to get ahold of and always communicated with me. I had an awesome summer staying here and felt so lucky that I was able to meet Kris and form a friendship with her!!

    Rachel2018-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Ktid's room is very warm, the house is very beautiful, the location is very good, the lake is next to it, not far from the business circle, the summer is especially beautiful, the house is very cool, especially suitable for summer stay, plus the landlord is very good.

    2018-05-25T00:00:00Z
  • Kris has provided a nice, clean, and reasonably priced place to stay. She's thought of all the details to try to make life without a kitchen bearable. The mini fridge/freezer, microwave, and Keurig made breakfasts easy. I used her place as a "home base" as I travelled to see friends and family all over MN. Kris is readily available for questions, and is just a really nice person!

  • Great little place to stay with a great price. Nothing bad to say except there was no top sheet on the bed we stayed in.

    Janel2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The only negative I can think of is the noise of the heater. Other than that it was a nice stay.

    Andrew2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This truly cozy cabin was exactly what we were looking for. It’s location - so close to the lakeshore and to Lord Fletchers and other cute shopping areas- was perfect. The cottage is bigger than it appears in photos, with 2 comfy bedrooms. It’s ‘vintage’ - but clean, well-appointed and for those who visit in winter...we’ll heated! We didn’t meet the hosts, but they responded immediately to our several inquiries. This was one of the best Airbnb values we’ve found!

    Susan2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • It's a clean, cozy, cottage. Great location, full kitchen, washer and dryer. Everything we needed. Comfortable beds, very pretty with new carpet, paint and decor.

    Janet2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Charming cottage close to everything and yet private enough to get away! Very tasteful and cozy and the hosts were great to deal with!!!

    Heather2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lexi’s place was a nice place to stay for a night! Clean and tidy. Bigger than expected. Nice location and a little off the beaten path. Felt homey. I would stay here again!

    Completely renovated cottage in the country, this house is so light & cheery you can't help but feel cozy. And with an acre to enjoy the outdoors, as well as being near to the Lake Minnetonka area, the Luce Line Trail & only 25 minutes from downtown Minneapolis, you will not be bored! Hit the other occasional shops in the area for a weekend of shopping or take some workshops next door at Mama's Happy - your stay is yours to create!
  • Very spacious with plenty at bathrooms and beds for our family. The decor was rustic farmhouse chic and felt very homey. The kitchen was well equipped. We enjoyed our stay very much.

    Mj2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! Nice peaceful place with a Country feel to it. The tile in the bathroom are heated and I think that could be a selling point on it’s own! 10/10 would return back again

    Saul2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here with family and friends for our wedding at Gale Woods Farm and it was perfect. Only 12 minutes from the venue and a great space to share before and after the wedding. Loved the big farmhouse table in the kitchen and the fire pit out back. Really great spot!

    Colleen2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • When you pull up to the house you start to think... way too small for 14 people, no. This house is huge with ample parking, a huge yard and massive deck. Every kitchen item you can think of is there. Very clean and private. Amanda lives very close so response time is quick (she doesn't live in the house). We are ready to go back very soon. Thanks for the wonderful place for our Family Gathering, our whole family was impressed -Jes T.

    Jessica2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house! Clean and spacious. Amanda was quick with her responses to the few questions I had. You’ll love it.

    Kayonna2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was wonderful thanks to Amanda! The home was clean, very easy self check in - check our process, and perfect for our girls weekend getaway. Beautiful backyard with a patio set and twinkle lights was the cherry on top for us!! Huge thanks to Amanda for being such a responsive and awesome host!

  • Cute cabin in a great location, with clean accommodations and an accessible host. We enjoyed our stay!

    Alexandra2017-09-30T00:00:00Z

    Joshua2017-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed staying at Jessica's Cabin. She communicated wonderfully during my stay. Nice to be close to the Noerenberg Memorial Gardens, the Harvest Moon Coop and the Lake Minnetonka Swim Pond. I'd say Jessica went "above and beyond" to make sure I felt comfortable and had what I needed.

  • Awesome place with a great view of the lake. Even though I started staying here in January and the lake is frozen over, the beauty and charm of the area is very apparent. Would definitely recommend staying here if looking for a place in Mound or the surrounding area. The family is nice and easy to get along with.

  • It’s a guest suite in the basement of a farmhouse. The atmosphere was very relaxing. The accommodations were quite spacious and cozy. The bed was very comfy. I had a great night’s rest. My pets were welcomed as well. The view was beautiful. It was so nice drinking my coffee while watching the amazing sunrise. I definitely would book here again.

Perfect retreat, so clean and comfy....couldn't get my hubby to leave the fab couch ! the ping pong table was perfect and we so loved their dogs, who came around daily to our door to say hi! we will be back! what a value!

    Robert2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for a few nights in December close to our family home. It is 1.5 miles away from downtown St. Boni, which is nice because they have a nice restaurant, an amazing bike trail, and a few bars. It is on a big, beautiful quiet lot. The place itself is nice and spacious. The bed was cozy. The thing we enjoyed most though, was the shower. My man is 6’8” and the shower head was tall enough for him and had great pressure. Next time we need a spot, we’ll definitely be back!

    Sun-drenched 3-bedroom house perched on a hill. Our home is surrounded by nature, while still being close to everything. The house sits on a cul de sac with only 3 houses. Across the street is a lovely pond (where I am currently being serenaded by frogs singing). We have owls, cardinals, yellow finches, wood peckers, and occasionally are visited by deer and a wild turkey. The neighborhood is safe, quiet, green. Neighbors are friendly. Five minutes to restaurants, Target, and a great food co-op
    Although the house is surrounded by maple trees, the house is suffused with natural light. That’s because it’s got windows everywhere. All 3 bedrooms are upstairs, and we put as many windows as possible in each one—along with big skylights. The largest room upstairs—which we use as the master bedroom/music room/studio was created by removing the wall between two bedrooms—has 15 windows and 2 big skylights. The 3 other rooms upstairs, (2 more bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms) also have big windows and skylights, and the original master bedroom has a full bathroom with 2-person Jacuzzi, toilet, sink, and shower. The sunroom just off the kitchen (first floor) is where you’ll spend much of your time. It’s got a gas stove that adds additional heat in the winter, so you can eat and hang out there all year round. The living room (which is on the left as you enter the house), looks out into the trees and the pond below. To the left as you enter, is a small office, with a half bathroom between it and the kitchen. The kitchen is a good size, but what makes it great are the appliances. If you like to bake, you’ll have lots of fun. Last year, a retired couple rented our house for 6 months, and they both fell in love with the house, the neighborhood, and our neighbors. The year before, we rented the house to 3 young engineers who also loved their “winter home.”
    The Mall of America—largest retail shopping center in the US. Eleven miles of indoor shopping. Full indoor amusement park also. 25 min. drive from the house. Can take Light Rail from Ridgedale Mall. Christo’s Greek Restaurant—5 min. Great, authentic Greek food at ridiculously reasonable prices. The owner is Gus. If you tell him you’re staying at our house, he’ll be extra friendly. (We eat there so often that Gus named a pizza after us!) Famous Dave’s Barbeque—5 min. Great spot for pork ribs and jazz. Lakewinds Food Co-op—5 min. Organic fruits, veggies, fish and meats, as well as other healthy foods. Has a hot bar with soups, salads, and entrees. Also has a good bakery. Target—5 min. Cub Foods—a really well-stocked grocery with decent prices. Also 5 min. drive to Williston Fitness Center (inexpensive, group yoga, tennis, Zumba classes, open to residents with Minnetonka address), The Marsh (expensive health club with restaurant and gift shop), miles and miles of hiking, biking, and cross country skiing trails through lovely marshlands. This “Rails to Trails” system connects all the suburbs to the the entire Twin Cities metro area.

  • My friends and I have stayed at Jeffrey's place two years in a row now as a little winter weekend getaway spot. It is the perfect place to escape from the city and the hectic nature of the day-to-day and RELAX! The kitchen is completely stocked with any tool you might need. The house is quaint but spacious, with just the right amount of space for 6 women to sleep comfortably and spend time together. We enjoyed cooking meals in the kitchen, waking up to the sun shining off of the frozen lake, making the short drive to Wayzata for brunch and window shopping, and cross country skiing (we brought our own skis and could have skied right on the lake, but opted for a nearby park). Jeffrey was always quick to respond and to help accommodate our needs! We are grateful for his hospitality and his beautiful space!

    Sarah2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • My group and I had a great trip staying at Jeffrey's place!

    Christian2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and unique place! Loved the veiw. It was nice for 3 families to stay because everyone had their own space

    Grace2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Nice cabin on the lake

    Myranda2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great house with a fantastic view from the deck and dining room. We found everything we needed for a relaxing 2 week stay. It was great to be outside of Minneapolis, but near enough to head into the city on the rainy days for indoor activities.

    Paul2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great space and location.

    Kerri2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Myself along with 5 other friends went down to Jeffrey’s house on Lake Sarah. The backyard was gorgeous and spacious. The check in was quick and painless. Plenty of sleeping space, kitchen was stocked with everything you would need. It was our first stay using Airbnb and it was a great experience. Would highly recommend this place to anyone inquiring. Thanks Jeffrey!

    Tyler2019-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • Myself and 5 girlfriends had a weekend away at Jeffrey's cabin and LOVED it. For some of the group it was a first-time Airbnb experience, and what a positive experience it was! As a group of only girls, we appreciated the extra security features such as the alarm, and also the stylish, yet cozy, atmosphere. We were not able to take advantage of the cabin being on a lake due to the colder weather, but the cabin itself made up for it. Both Jeffrey and his co-host were very communicative prior to our arrival so that we felt well-prepared upon getting there. We personally enjoyed the location - spent one evening in Excelsior and it was only a 30 minute drive from the cabin. The beds were comfortable and we also enjoyed having access to the kitchen that was fully stocked with supplies, appliances, etc. We were able to save some money by buying groceries and using the kitchen for meals. Our ONLY recommendation would be for their to be curtains for the windows for added privacy. But even that is such a minimal thing! We definitely hope to make this an annual trip!

  • Mei's house is beautiful, clean, and in a great location. The room has a wonderful view of the backyard and is so peaceful and quiet. She really respected my privacy, but was ready to talk to me if I wanted and offered a lot of advice about the area. Mei helped me out numerous times during my stay. She is a genuinely wonderful person and she creates a happy, peaceful mood in the house. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Best Airbnb yet!

    Saya2019-06-27T00:00:00Z

    Jamie2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • We have never been so impressed with anywhere we have stayed. The tremendous generosity & thoughtfulness were way, way, way more than we expected. The rest of our out-of-town family stayed at a bed 'n breakfast in Excelsior. It definitely has its vintage charm, but in no way could compare to the amenities and comfort of "our place. " We plan to come back in the future to visit the area again, and we would most definitely like to repeat our visit. Thank you so much for everything, and for sharing your beautiful home with us!

  • Bob's communication skills and friendly personality were excellent, and Bob and Terrisa's Airbnb was more than we expected. The location was very close to our children in Minnetonka and provided quick walking access to fun-filled Wayzata. The unit was very clean and the kitchen well stocked with spices, pans, cutting boards, utensils, and appliances. The room layout efficient, and light switches and wall hooks logical. We loved the quiet neighborhood, off-street parking, keypad door lock, heated towel rack, and gas outdoor grill. We will definitely try to book in with them again!

    Kelly2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • As a fellow superhost, I appreciate a nicely hosted place. Bob and Terrisa have it figured out. The space is extremely well decorated, the craftsmanship is top notch and the amenities are really nice. The location is perfect. An easy walk to downtown Wayzata where there is wonderful restaurants and shops right by the lake. If you get a chance to stay here, do it. You won't be disappointed.

    James2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is an awesome place and conveniently located (coffee and grocery store within walking distance). This is a lovely well appointed space. I loved the natural light, there was more natural light than I expected for a walkout basement unit. Very clean, well stocked for cooking. Very comfortable bed and furnishings. We appreciated all the homey touches. I also appreciated that they have a recycling bin clearly labeled:) I would recommend this place as a great place to stay:)

    JoAnn2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

  • Jackson and Shelley's place on Avocet Lane is a perfect getaway for couples or a family looking for a beautiful spot on the water in a quiet neighborhood. The photos don't quite capture the beauty of their shoreline and view to the lake -- and the beautifully landscaped yard. The apartment is stylish, pristine clean, well-stocked with the basics. The kitchen, dining and living area are light-filled and you have access to a screen-in porch with a large TV. We had our family over for a barbecue and they loved hanging out on the dock in the evening - sitting on the bench, fishing and paddling around in their pedal boat. It is a great place for just relaxing yourselves or having a few friends over. Jackson and Shelley are top-notch hosts - warm and responsive and always in communication if you need anything. We couldn't recommend this home more.

    Antoinette2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • My family of four felt at home in this beautiful home. The yard had plenty of green space and games for the kids to play, and my husband and I loved the chairs by the lake in the evening after the kids went to bed. The house was clean and very comfortable, the coffee bar a bonus! Jackson and Shelley were super accommodating and kind enough to take us out for an evening boat ride. We look forward to booking next summer’s trip here again.

    Melissa2019-07-15T00:00:00Z
  • Such a great host and amazing location. Peaceful and relaxing. Highly recommend for a lake place getaway that is a short commute from Minneapolis. Jackson took the time to introduce himself and take us on a fantastic boat cruise. I will never forget my experience and already looking forward to another visit!

    Theodore2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • I can't say enough good things about this rental. It was everything we wanted plus more. It was the perfect place for our family of five. Our three small boys had toys to play with and enjoyed all the rental had to offer. I was able to make meals at the house and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We loved the pedal boat and enjoyed the boat ride with Jackson and Shelley. They are amazing. We can't wait to return.

    Lindsay2019-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for a quick parents getaway. From the moment we walked in, we knew we picked the best vacation home. Jackson and Shelley are amazing hosts. They thought of everything to make our stay spectacular! The home was beautifully decorated and the lake was divine! The screened in porch make our rainy day so fun! We were close to great restaurants. And we enjoyed exploring local wineries and breweries. I hope we can come back soon!

  • Great home right on Lake Minnetonka. Kids loved swimming in the lake and paddle boating. Adults loved the boat ride and relaxing in the Adirondack chairs. Ms Pac-Man game was a hit with kids and adults. Beautiful interior and the best views of the lake. Wonderfully hospitality by the hosts.

    All are welcome here! Close to Mpls., Excelsior, Lake Minnetonka, and Wayzata. Our private garden-level suite offers its own entrance, 2 large bedrooms with NEW Queen-size beds! full bath, spacious, cozy living room area, washer/dryer, tons of kitchen features, and upgrades galore. We welcome travelers who prefer a tranquil space rather than those seeking a party atmosphere. Quiet neighborhood close to walking trails, biking paths, and easy highway access. Non-smokers please for health concerns.
    Our wonderful location is only 25 minutes from Minneapolis. If you are here visiting either Minneapolis or St. Paul, once you are done with the city, a quick drive takes you back to this tranquil space where you can put up your feet, grab a glass of wine, and watch some Cable TV. We provide off-street parking with your own dedicated parking spot. For winter travelers, there are plenty of skating rinks, sliding hills, and cross-country skiing areas also close by. Winter enthusiasts will appreciate the many events held on the lake. From pond hockey tournaments on Excelsior Bay, to The Chilly Open, an annual golf tournament on Lake Minnetonka's Main Lake, all surrounded by fish house villages. And don't be surprised if you see a highway spanning the lake. This is a common sight in the winter months, and one we Minnesotans take pride in. In the warm, summer months, travelers who appreciate beautiful gardens will delight in our well-tended display of both flowers and shrubbery. Our gardens were once included in the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum's Garden Tour and very well-received. As our guest, you can rely on gracious hosts who are well-informed of our special area if you seek to acquire any historical knowledge about Lake Minnetonka. Having lived here my whole life, I can answer almost any questions you may have. This space is close to two wonderful small towns: Wayzata and Excelsior, both within 6 miles and can be accessed by both biking trails and streets. Both towns boast two of the most popular restaurants in Minnesota: Maynards in Excelsior, and The Cov in Wayzata. Microbrewerys abound in both towns, as well as plenty of unique retail shops. You could spend a whole day in either town and be completely entertained. If you prefer to spend the afternoon at the lake, a hand full of quiet beaches on Lake Minnetonka are just a few miles miles away. If you prefer kayaking or canoeing, there are dozens of locations around the lake to launch from and we can direct you to those where free parking is available. Please don't hesitate to inquire about any information not covered here. We welcome all questions about our beautiful location.
    This well-established, private neighborhood is abundant with mature trees, tidy homes with large yards, and quiet, windy roads idyllic for leisurely strolls, brisk walks, or maybe a morning run since this quiet neighborhood is also linked via trails to the LRT (an old railway corridor) which runs from Hopkins to Victoria. A segment of this trail travels through the recently voted "Cutest town in Minnesota", Excelsior. Families here are friendly and fun-loving, taking pride in their neighborhood, as do we. We are also close to Lake Minnetonka and all its wonderful summer/winter amenities.
  • Cozy retreat.

    Jean2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Although a bit removed from the busy area of the city, if you're ok with a little quiet neighborhood, Paula's place is a lovely spot to spend a weekend or longer. There's ample space, comfortable amenities & touches, and a nice bed. There's a path across the yard that's a little dark, but with the modern convenience of a cell phone flashlight, it wasn't a big deal . She provided detailed descriptions for us & a detailed house rules book that listed everything you might need to consider for your stay. I'd recommend Paula's place for a couple or a small group of friends. It's a lot of space for just one (we were 2). Highly recommend.

  • Wren Court is a perfect place to stay for a trip to the cities. It is in a perfect location and is a great place to get some quiet time and relax after busy days. The space is clean, cozy, and has great amenities. Paula is very nice and check-in is super easy.

    Sarah2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Wren Court has everything that is needed for a comfortable stay. Paula also includes many personal touches that add to the ambiance. Magazines, coffee and teas, hand creams, room sprays, etc. I would highly recommend this location.

  • We were in town for a wedding, and this space was a perfect home base for us. The neighborhood is quiet, but there are restaurants, a grocery store, coffee shops, and whatever else you might need a quick drive away. The room was very cute, and we loved the fan and air conditioner for the evening where it was really warm. We slept great!

  • What a wonderful place Terri and Laurie have. I had high expectations because of all the wonderful reviews and it was even better than I expected. It made my visit with family in the cities so much easier and more relaxed. I will certainly be staying with them again next time I need a place in the cities.

    Roy2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • This space worked out perfect for me! Extremely clean, lots of nice extra touches, comfortable bed, and close to everything in the area. The hosts were super nice and accommodating. The area that you would rent is much bigger than I expected… I didn’t even use half of it. I would highly recommend!

    Laura2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • This was my third stay at Terry & Laurie 's lovely place..as always I was super pleased with the sparkling cleanless , high comfort and quality amenities of this beautiful home . I will not hesitate coming back again...

    Murat2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Terry and Laurie's could not have been any better. Laurie, and her home, exude warmth and hospitality. The accommodations were lovely. We had everything that one needs to feel at home. The beds, pillows, and bedding were comfortable. One bed was firm (which I prefer) the other was softer ( which is my adult daughters preference.) The "icing on the cake," so to speak, were Laurie's homemade scones and fresh fruit, which she served both mornings during our stay. We would definitely stay there again, if we were in the area.

We are very busy usually when we are staying at her home so it is great to get in and out easily and have somewhere to park. I would highly recommend her place for privacy and her great communication!

    Alesha2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Molly was a great host and very kind. The house was quiet, clean and the bed was comfortable. I was a new comer to Minnesota and winter and she made me feel at home. I stayed for a month. I would have stayed longer, but my job took me to another part of the city.

    David2020-01-31T00:00:00Z

    Loriann2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at this home was delightful. I had the opportunity to stay for 2 months during a life transition. I felt at complete peace and Nakisa took extra effort to make sure I was comfortable. She often brought me fresh flowers, fruits and vegetables from her beautiful garden. The furniture is super super comfy and the library is amazing. I really can’t say enough about how much I enjoyed my time here. Oh yeah, the location is close to everything I needed and is very safe. Blessed!! Lori

    Lori2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious and comfortable. Ali & Sade and Nakisa were very helpful and welcoming. Very, very well furnished. Many places have ovens and dishwashers, but not only did they have everything you’d need in a well equipped kitchen, there was even a reverse osmosis filtration system in the kitchen. We didn’t need to ask for anything at all, but if we had needed to ask, I’m Nakisa would have done her very best to get it. Also there’s a nice library in two languages. The photos don’t really do justice to this place.

    Mike2019-06-16T00:00:00Z

The neighbor hood upscale and I felt very safe walking around into the evening by myself. I would definitely come stay here again! Thank you for the great experience! Heidi

    Heidi2019-04-23T00:00:00Z

  • Call of the Loon was an amazing cabin for. our family of 5! Perfect location and absolutely awesome host. Couldn't ask for anything better.

    Jessica2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This was a perfect space for a girls trip with plenty of space and thoughtful little touches. Anton was a great host and very easy to communicate with.

    Marissa2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a cozy, clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated cottage close to many local pubs and restaurants, and also a short distance to tubing, skiing and ice skating. Anton was a great host and made sure all was good and we were happy. We are from Florida and came to Minnesota for the Klondike dog derby and the entire trip was a wonderful experience. We will definitely stay at Call of the Loon when we come back to Minnesota!

    Kelli2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great location. Right on the water, plenty of beds (though I didn’t need them!). Really exquisite wood work for a cabin type setting. It was warm in the winter, great views.. fast internet. The host was super responsible and relaxed. Highly recommend.

    Erik2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Would give 10 stars if I could! Came from Florida for a trip to the snow. Couldn't believe how helpful Anton was and how caring he was to ensure we had a good stay. He went above and beyond. Will definitely be coming back during the summer for the lake view! Beautiful beautiful place.

    Tiffany2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Great little 70’s retro north woods cabin on Lake Minnetonka. Super comfortable, super unique and super clean. A lot of care has gone into making this a fun stay for its guests. Well-equipt kitchen and bathroom. Fun loft bedroom. Double sided fireplace. Sonos and large flatscreen w Netflix. Vintage bar. And Anton was a great host who went out of his way for us. No complaints whatsoever.

    Sam2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • This place was incredible! We highly recommend it for anyone is looking for a cozy cabin get-a-way... with Netflix to boot!

    John2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • A terrific, quirky place: heavy wood carvings, an antique stove, a magnificent 2-sided wood-burning fireplace (faces both the living room and the bedroom), and a great view of Lake Minnetonka, albeit across a busy street. It’s a slice of “up north” just 20 minutes from Minneapolis. Gracious hosts, very clean, well-appointed kitchen and Keurig.

    This is a separate guest suite built with excellence, comfort, and relaxation in mind. It has a separate entry inside the Carriage House. Owner works in and around the hospitality industry and has a goal to make your experience here a great one: great bed and sleep, great shower, great place to work and to relax. In a residential area but close to many great restaurants, retail shops, and services . This is designed for business travelers or couples.
    This space is upstairs - being able to walk up and down stairs is a requirement. Our cars are parked downstairs and we would come and go from time to time. There is a lockable door at the entry to the space (bottom of the stairs). Our house is across the parking area. The bathroom floor is heated during colder weather (and can be turned on in warmer weather if desired). The kitchenette is a small version of a full kitchen. Most appliances are listed in the amenities section of the listing. The cook top is a two burner gas. There is a Breville Smart Oven for toasting and baking. It is the best "Counter top toaster and oven" we have ever used.
    There is a walking/biking trail nearby. The Marsh, a center for balance and fitness, is just down the road and offers guest day passes for sale.
  • I am a business traveler who needs to spend a couple of weeks every month in Minneapolis. This is a perfect accommodation for a business traveler. It is so much better than sitting in a hotel. The apartment makes it feel like you are home. I highly recommend it!

    Sandra2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Dan was an incredible host! He was very kind and quick to respond. My boyfriend and I decided to do a staycation near the cities, found this place, and could not have been happier. We went out to a nearby restaurant one night and then enjoyed movies and popcorn that were already at the place another night. It was cozy, clean, and just felt like home. Thanks again for hosting us, Dan! We look forward to coming back soon!

The lower level has it’s own living room, bar/dining area with basic appliances, full bathroom, laundry with supplies provided, and a bedroom! The cities are about a $15 Uber/lyft and there is a variety of things to do in the area. I hope to see you soon! Alexis

  • I usually prefer entire places but this felt just like it. The unit was easily private from rest of the home. Being dog friendly is a huge plus, and you couldn't tell because the place was completely spotless!

    Gramm2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay! It's a great cozy home away from home. Very nicely decorated with cute personal touches and VERY clean.

Would highly recommend!

    Stephanie2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

    Michael2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • We’ve stayed in AirBnbs all over the world, and had many great experiences, but I’ve never had a host more gracious and accommodating than Alexis. We had some special requests and needs as we were in town for my daughter’s wedding, and Alexis made every one of them happen. Excellent experience. Thank you Alexis!

    It is a spacious bedroom w new furniture, large window, closet, and private bathroom in a big new house. The guest has access to small gym unit, ping-pong table, 3-season porch, kitchen/fridge and living room. The house has beautiful view of trees, lawns & wetland, and is close to parks, trails, schools, shopping centers, highway. Limited public transit is 1/3 miles away. Contact me for questions.
    The house is on the highland of a very tranquil neighborhood block. The bedroom and bathroom are in the large walk-out basement. From your bedroom window, and windows and glass-doors in the basement, you will have beautiful view of lawn, trees and wetland. High speed WiFi included. Parking on drive way and is free.
    Our very own neighborhood park is just across street. It has playground, soccer/baseball field and walking trails. Biking and walking trails are everywhere. Other local and regional parks with beautiful lakes are couple miles away (i.e. Weaver Lake Park, Fish Lake Park, and French Park, Baker Park Reserve, Elm Creek Park Reserve just to name a few). Shopping centers with various eating options, and grocery stores (Sam’s club, Costco, Walmart, Cub Foods, Whole Foods, Trade Joe ..) are all within 4-5 miles away. Ask me if you need more specific. City of Maple Grove is often rated as one of the best cities to live in America. Maple Grove Community Center, Park and Rec, library, Lifetime Fitness have lot events and activities year around and are all just 4 miles away. Again, ask me if you want to learn more.
  • This the 2nd time I’ve stayed at Mei’s place. Both times for multiple months. Mei has been a gracious and caring host both times. The house is in a safe and in an upscale suburban neighborhood. The room is downstairs with lots of light since it is a walkout basement. She tries to respect your privacy by not going downstairs that often so it feels like you have the basement to yourself most of the time. The room itself is large and clean. It has a microwave, mini fridge and tv. There is a private bathroom just outside the room. As well I was able to park my car in the garage both times I stayed there. Overall my stays have been great and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this to anyone else.

    Van2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • The house is in a quiet neighborhood with a lot of walking trails. Mei was very hospitable and provided great tips on events in the area. She was an excellent host!

    J.2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • My space was in the lower level of the home off of a common living area. There was a bathroom dedicated for the guest right next to the bedroom. Though the lower level living room is technically common space, it felt very private. The bedroom is very spacious and comfortable with nice closet and drawer space if needed. The check in process was easy and I was given a remote control for the secure attached garage so I could come and go as I pleased. Mei is very organised and had dedicated refrigerator and pantry space for the guest, which was very nice touch. The location is in one of the north western suburbs of Minneapolis in a very quiet and well kept residential neighbourhood. This was perfect for me as my job was only a few miles away. Recommended

    Mike2019-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Mei is a most gracious host with a sparkling clean home. The room is very private and the common areas are very accommodating. Check in was a breeze and the indoor garage parking is a nice bonus. I would stay here again without hesitation.

    Eric2018-12-22T00:00:00Z

    This home has 115ft of Gideons Bay shoreline in Downtown Excelsior. Voted one of the best small towns in US, you can walk to all types of great restaurants , movie theater, pubs and amazing shops. This beautiful 5 bedroom 3 bath home is built for family fun and can sleep 12+. Big views of Gideons Bay, Sunsets and crystal clear water. Interior updates. Includes plenty of toys! Enjoy your lake vacation and all that makes Excelsior and lake Minnetonka such an attractive destination.
    We recently acquired this property as our empty nester home once our kids graduate. We rent high end properties often and our goal is to make this a rental property that our own family would enjoy.; Clean, quality bedding towels, furniture and amenities. We purchased this House in 2018 This is property has lots of space. Very private considering the location. Rental comes with , Bikes, Paddle Boards and kayak
    We chose this property because of its location and Bay (Gideon’s). Being able to walk to Downtown Excelsior and yet have a lakefront property is a rare opportunity with only 22 lake lots in downtown Excelsior.
  • Fun stay! Thanks for having us! I miss those amazing sunsets!

    This is a lovely 540 square foot, mother in law apt with a private entrance. Four rooms with a Queen bedroom, A full size pull out sofa in the sitting room, a kitchenette with laundry facilities and a full bath with shower. We are 20 min from downtown Mpls. This is a very private, quiet and safe area.
    An X country ski waxing room is available.
    Residential neighborhood of 2+ acre lots. Quiet and safe.
  • This attached but private apartment has a separate entrance and the heat will be set by the owners to whatever you desire. It is clean, quiet, comfortable, and exactly as pictured. Nice touches such as fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, teas, and hot chocolate. The host, George, came right out to help us when we were having trouble opening the door when we arrived around 8:30pm. It WAS unlocked, as promised, but was an unusual latch that we were not familiar with. Very nice area, very convenient for us, and excellent value for the money. Kitchen is limited to small fridge, microwave, and two-burner electric cooktop. Not much in the way of cooking utensils or dishes, but enough to get by (we just had a quick breakfast then were gone for the day). Would highly recommend to a single person or couple.

  • Very quaint, with several special touches. Highly recommend it

  • The place was just as advertised. The pull out bed was comfortable. If you do use the pull out the sitting area becomes useless but it was perfect for our needs. I needed a kitchen item and George had it to me shortly after I asked. Everything was super clean. Would definitely stay again.

  • Cute and cosy..... Really a quaint little abode. Quiet and clean.

  • George’s place was nearly perfect for our recent trip to visit my sister. Check-in was a breeze, the place was immaculately clean, and there were lots of thoughtful touches (stocked fridge, snacks, local info, etc.). The place is ideal for two, but we made it work with three. The pullout sofa was quite comfortable as far as pullouts go...but it was still a pullout. My parents will be visiting again in January, and will definitely be staying with George!

  • Great, secluded spot

    Miki2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • VERY cozy and comfortable (it's Winter now). Super hosts, attentive to anything I might need. Nice touches coming in - a little ground coffee and fruit for the morning. Kitchen is also nice - plan basically "heat and eat." I would happily stay again.

  • George was a wonderful host and met us when we arrived. We were looking for a quiet place to get away from a few busy months and this was perfect. We had everything we needed.
