weekend away in the heart of the metro area.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I very much enjoyed staying at Carolyn's "cottage". The studio apartment was well organized and clean. The fold down bed was comfortable for sleeping. We enjoyed the brightness of the apartment with the morning sunshine. My wife really liked the chairs surrounding the fire pit for relaxing and reading. The neighborhood was quiet and felt safe. We took many walks up to the nearby stores and restaurants. We also walked to the Minnehaha Falls. The "cottage" experience was a chance for us to experience life in the big city for a weekend. Thank you, Carolyn!

Clean and Cozy Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Carolyn could not have been more accommodating and welcoming. She really keeps her cottage clean and cozy. The bed was so comfortable. The cottage is also stocked with everything you could need. Also very easy to get to everything even with the Super Bowl going on. We loved staying here and will be back!
