    Reviews

      We stayed at this house with our five children and found the location perfect for our needs - very secluded on a great piece of property on a cul de sac but close to downtown Hopkins. The neighborhood is quiet and right between Shady Oak Beach and Lone Lake Park, so there were nice hiking/walking options, which we took advantage of daily, despite the persistent rain. The house was big enough for our kids to spread out - a key feature when dealing with teenagers. The basement is huge and a great place for entertaining. While we were very comfortable in the house, other renters may find the amenities dated; it's clear the house hasn't been lived in for several years. There are only two TVs with very limited cable (another key issue with teenagers) and to plug in the DVD player, we had to unplug the cable box. We also had an issue with the smoke alarm in the kitchen; it was so sensitive, it would go off if we heated up the oven or made toast. But our kids were happy with the broken-in furniture and we enjoyed our stay. Just wish the weather had been better.
      This was a great place for 10 out-of-town family members to stay for a wedding in downtown Minneapolis. The house was spotless, plenty of linens, ample living space. We loved the screened in porch and the quiet (except for the birds!) My favorite room was the sitting room off the master bedroom -- like a tree house! We hosted a post-wedding brunch for 25 people and had a great time. There is wi-fi (used a lot) and cable (watched one program), maps of the regional trails and plenty of books for adults and children. It would be a wonderful place for a family with kids to stay, especially with a beach close-by. Only drawback would be for people who have trouble with stairs as it is a split-level.
      DO NOT RENT THIS PROPERTY. The owner lives out of state and is unable to provide quality service to her visitors. She relies on personal friends and "managers" to manage the property, but unfortunately during our stay, the manager was also out of state and we were bounced between several people to get keys and have questions answered. It was very confusing, unprofessional, and frustrating, considering this was supposed to be a relaxing weekend, and especially difficult when we had questions about getting into the house or where to find things. While the house is large enough for a big group (we were there for a girl's weekend), it is not in an optimal location, and you have to have a car to get anywhere (drugstore, gas station, restaurants, lake, other entertainment, etc.). The house was minimally stocked. We had to purchase our own cleaning supplies for basic sanitation in the kitchen and bathroom as the owner did not provide us with anything to clean up after ourselves. However, she did expect the house to be clean when we left, even though this was not mentioned in the contract and we had nothing to clean with. The owner and manager were unresponsive the week after we left so it was difficult to get information about receiving our security deposit back. When I was finally able to get in touch with her, she accused my group of stealing things from her home (they were simply in a different location so we could make room in the kitchen) and wanted to charge us for damages that had NOT been incurred by our group and were already in the house. The owner also seemed upset that we used her kitchen supplies and was surprised that we produced garbage. I don't think the owner has much experience in hosting or providing for small or large groups. This owner should NOT be renting out her house and I highly recommend that people look elsewhere for a rental property. This was supposed to be a fun weekend for all of us to spend together before my friend got married, and the disorganized and unprofessional service we received from the owner and manager absolutely ruined the experience for my friends and I. I am highly disappointed in the way we were treated, will NEVER rent from VRBO again, and will think twice about ever renting a property from any other source.
      A quite, secluded place to stay that is not far from the lake, city and airport.
      This is a delightful home. My sisters had a small family reunion, and this was the perfect setting for it. It has a nice kitchen for preparing food, and a large dining room, we however spent most of the time in the screened porch. There are a lot of windows and natural light in the home. The photos accurately reflect the rental home. If you have children, there is a lake close by that has rafts, water slides, and a large beach. There are many hiking trails to explore. The owners and manager were very helpful and accommodating. We liked this house and location so much, that we plan on going back next summer and staying longer! I highly recommend this home.
      The house was everything we were looking for, we had family coming in from Colorado and California. The house was big enough for all 6 of that slept there and for the reunion that we held there. We were the first family to rent the property so we had a few problems but they were solved. We loved the screened in porch and spent most of our time there visiting. The area has lots of walking trails, Lone Lake was especially nice. Bryant Lake is about a 5 minute drive away and was wonderful for swimming and also paddling boarding. We did not use any of the resaurants near by but next time we will. I highly recommend the property to families with older children or like we were doing meeting for a family reunion.
