Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Minnetonka, Minnesota
If you're looking to escape the harshness of winter in Minnesota, our house is as good as it gets. We've lived hear for 20 years and have done everything possible to bring in the maximum amount of light in the winter. Summer's no problem, because we're located high on a hill surrounded by lovely maples and a stately elm tree that shades the house from the heat. And there's the huge, terraced, perennial garden that graces the hill to the cul de sac below.

There are 2 actual bedrooms, and a huge music studio with 16 windows and 2 skylights (which we use as our master bedroom--because it's an irresistible place to wake up in). We've turned the master bedroom into 'The Snoring Room,' which has a twin bed, full bath, and a two-person jacuzzi with a skylight over it.

Since we moved our bed to the studio, t...

About the neighbourhood
The house is perched on a hill, and sits above a quiet cul de sac with just 3 houses. It overlooks a pond where our daughter used to ice skate in the moonlight. The neighborhood is quiet, and it's tucked away from all major streets and freeways.

The neighborhood has lots of mature trees, gardens in the summer, and there is ample space between houses. Our neighbors are friendly, but respectful of everyone's privacy.

Within a 5 minute drive, there is a Target (with full grocery), a Cub Foods market, and food co-op with fresh produce, exotic cheeses, and a fish and meet market.
Our favorite restaurant is a Greek restaurant just 5 minutes from our home. Just across the street from it is Famous Dave's Barbecue, a local restaurant known for its fabulous ribs.
