If you're all about location (bus routes, light rail, grocery store, cafe, river, NiceRide bikes, U of MN & several hospitals) in a quiet neighborhood and an owner-occupied household that values pets and sustainability, then you've found your place.

Warm, inviting, private room allows you the comforts of home. Equipped with a small microwave, mini fridge, hot water maker & melitta (coffee maker), basic dishes & wine glasses. You can cook vegetarian meals in the main kitchen and you can have room in the refrigerator and cupboards if you need it. Lots of storage space in knee walls for those with extended stays. There is a hard wood door that you can close to keep the cat out of your room.

Enjoy the chiminea & soft lighting on the back deck at night or a quiet afternoon laying on the deck under the giant shade umbr...

This little spot was the perfect reprieve for me. I needed a safe, quiet and cozy place to rest that was close enough to explore downtown St. Paul and Minneapolis. Lots of good food and coffee nearby. The home owner, Melissa, greeted me at the door and carried my luggage upstairs! She then offered a warm meal with a glass of wine. Oh! And she welcomed my dog into her home:) The room is funky and cute with loads of character. I enjoyed my stay!

I really liked staying here! Home owners were friendly and made my first week of law school worry free in terms of where i was staying! They even provided me toilettries when the airline lost my luggage! Very reasonably priced and a provided a nice peaceful place to study! I hope to stay here again! The place was clean and the bed is really comfortable!

About the neighbourhood
Longfellow Market is across the street. An independent coffee shop and NiceRide bikes are a block away. Dunn Brothers coffee shop is near the rive. Many restaurants are within walking distance, including a Latino dance club, 'Rodeo'. The river is one mile away and has walking/running/bicycling trails. One mile in the opposite direction is the light rail which goes to the MOA or to downtown and the stadiums. There are two bus lines that run within three blocks of the house. Uber or Lyft are readily available.

Light rail, NiceRide bicycles, buses, Uber or Lyft--you should have no problems getting around town. I have put together a book of notable places and events, for all sorts of interests, so that you will have no lack of things to keep you busy and engaged.
