Charming, cozy house close to the St. Paul campus of the University of Minnesota--pass through farm fields daily, therefore, while still in the city. Bus easily to either downtown Minneapolis or St. Paul from here-or inter-campus bus to Mpls campus.
This is a second story dormer bedroom with view of the ample backyard, trees and garden. It includes a double bed, desk, closet and bathroom across the hall. This house was built by the host's father in 1952. It retains much of its retro flair. Two upstairs bedrooms are part of AirBnB. The room opens to a hall, off of which are the half-bath and another north-facing room. The stair landing is a little sitting room with couch and TV (basic cable only.) AC window units upstairs. No central air. Windows on the ground floor are open to the garden in the summer! But there are a few hot weeks in Minnesota, so if this is not to your taste, please be aware. During those weeks the upstairs is cooler than the main floor. Also, the ground level shower/bath are shared by guests and host/family (so 2-4 people), but your upstairs half-bath would be shared only if the second room were booked, too.
Access to kitchen, dining and living rooms, yard and screened porch in summer. Laundry, too, in the basement and bicycle storage in the garage.
Friendly, but honor independence of my guests.
There are not pets in the home, nor is there smoking allowed anywhere, yard or within.
Respectful and quiet within reason. Clear communication of plans. Neat. Clean up kitchen same day. Dedication to everyone's happiness, including yours. No smoking or pets.

I love running, cross-country skiing, and canoeing, my three fabulous adult children, amazing friends, the north woods and north shore of Minnesota, books and writing. But there's more!--Colombia and Ecuador are dear to my heart, yet one of my favorite places on earth is my hammock on my back back porch. I pretty much live out there all summer--as if it were a cabin, accessible by passing through a door. Magic! I eat my oatmeal out there every morning in the summer, and read (with the birds.)
I lived in Colombia for a year when I was fifteen, and the hospitality and ardor of my Colombian friends changed me forever. If I could I would travel up and down the spine of the Andes by bus, taking in the mountains, the people, the food, the music and passion. Being open and welcoming is what I wish to offer my guests, too. I love connections, people and living fully. I also have Scandinavian roots, and here in Minnesota we generalize that this gives us a bit too much reserve. This is why I say "Colombia saved me" at a tender age. Nevertheless, I also honor my guests' independence and need for privacy and autonomy.
I do have a secret life motto: live poetically. How cheesy--but it's so good!
