Overview


Kenwood Award Winner

Blocks from Lake of the Isles, minutes to anywhere Uptown, Lake Calhoun or Walker Arts Center, this adorably spacious home is a winner of five design awards and has been featured nationally on “This Old House”.

Bright and airy throughout, the décor of this lovely 6-bedroom, 5-bath home is “Scandinavian minimalist”, and is enhanced with happy hearts throughout all four floors. This 1905 home retains its old-world charm with refinished original oak floors and fixtures on its main floor and was carefully blended with the recent remodel, which added improvements for modern life, including a new front porch with push-button retractable screens, radiant floor heating, hypoallergenic indoor air, 200-amp service, and 3 outlets for EV’s (including one Tesla stoop outdoor outlet). The washer and dryer are sensibly centrally located on the second floor.

There are a variety of places for people to gather and hang out. Both living room areas on the main floor have cozy fireplaces; a sun room features a wide screen television over the gas fireplace and the other living area is furnished for conversation, with a table great for board games or noshing is centered among comfortable easy chairs, and features a long built in window seat where someone might be found relaxing with a good book from one of the bookshelves or one of their own. Eat casually at the built in wooden seating at the breakfast nook in the kitchen or there’s a formal dining room, which also favors “a relaxed vibe”. In the basement, an additional entertainment area also welcomes leisure time, where you can lounge or take advantage of the monster tv screen, not far from a cheery bar area with a mini-fridge, microwave, and wine cooler. In good weather, if you’re not out seeing other Twin Cities sights, you can enjoy backyard fun grilling on the deck, simply relaxing on the patio or enjoy sunsets from the front porch equipped with automatic screening.

When the weather isn’t so favorable, it’s a short walk from your car to the driveway side entrance. A generously-sized mud room with plenty of storage space provides room adequate for a carload of people to comfortably make the transition between indoors and outdoors

This is the perfect home away from home for families or groups looking for temporary lodging or a vacation home in Minneapolis. Walkscore.com rates this area as a biker’s paradise with a biking score of 94. There are nearby public transportation options with frequent availability.

This house was amazing! Very spacious, great for large parties and families! Lance had lots of children toys and books for the kids. Nearly everyone had their own bathroom and the house was stylish and spotless! Another huge plus was that there was a driveway (we were able to fit 3 cars), so you don’t need to worry about finding parking on the street! The location is perfect. Close to target center, walker art, and anything uptown! I highly highly recommend:) You will be blown away!

Kenwood Manor is up and away the best vacation rental we have ever stayed in whilst visiting Minneapolis. The home is beautiful, spacious, impeccably clean with all the charm and comfort you’d hope to have with a large group. The minnestay team took amazing care of us from the moment we booked it right thru our last day. Every request and need was met with ease so we could enjoy time with family. There is not one thing we’d change about this home and our next visit to Mpls will hopefully include a stay here! Thank you for such a beautiful holiday in this fabulous house!

Best airbnb I have stayed in to date. The house is beautiful, with incredible finishes - fireplace, chefs kitchen, large flat screen TVs, heated floors in entrance and master bath. It was an amazing place to gather friends and colleagues. Neighborhood is beautiful as well, was safe and quiet. Easy and secure to enter the house. Room for a car if you have one. Lance was responsive and thoughtful. We had an issue with a broken light switch and it was fixed within the day. We were traveling for a conference at the Hyatt Recency (also near the conference area). It was a very convenient car ride away from the house. If you ride share, build in time for your car to arrive - wait times could be long.

We held a staff retreat at Minnestay and had a wonderful experience! The house is absolutely lovely -- great spaces for lounging (inside and out!) meeting, cooking and sleeping. Lance was great about responding to questions about the space. The house is in a wonderful quiet neighborhood close to the lake and local attractions. We loved our stay and would recommend to others.
