Spacious lower level with queen size bed and a futon for additional guests. Your own full bath with tub, shower, towels etc. My house backs up to Battle Creek Park where you can often see deer, turkeys, or bubbling water from the creek. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac with a bus stop 5 houses away. Refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot available on same level.
Private space in a walkout basement with own bathroom, access to outside, park adjacent so it's quiet and has a nice view. However, the ceilings are low with the enclosed venting being only 6 feet high. Tall people will need to watch their head. ;) Access is through the garage and down the steps directly behind the door into the house.
I live upstairs so you may hear me walking around (my floors tend to creak) but I'm certainly not a partier nor generally an early riser.
There is a space heater to warm the basement in the winter. If you will be gone most the day, please turn it to the lowest level.
There is a nice walking path behind my house with beautiful scenery. One way is about 1 mile downhill ( nice workout coming back up). The other way is more level and extends for 2 miles to Battle Creek Park with a Waterpark open in the summer. Within 2 miles to 3M Corporate headquarters. Fast food and other restaurants nearby. Target and Aldi are 1/2 mile away. Cub is 1.1 miles away.
Great place to stay during the MN State Fair. Close to free Fair bus service.
Combined sleeping area, TV, couches, full bath, door directly to outside but not easily accessible from driveway. Adjacent in an unfinished part of basement is a refrigerator/freezer, microwave, coffee pot, dishes, and utensils.
I don't accept children under 6 years old. I will also screen to see what your general plans are during your stay. Hoping you are in the area for some fun activities or visiting family or friends. Having people just hanging out or living in my basement is not my intention for hosting. Thanks for understanding.
I enjoy getting to know my guests but also understand if you're busy or our schedules don't match up. I'm available either in person or always via text. Please let me know that if you need anything.
No smoking - not in my house nor on my property nor the neighbor's property.
You will be given an access code to the garage for house entry. Please ensure the garage door is closed when you're not actively entering or leaving.
Quiet hours are after 11pm during the week and 12am on the weekend.
Smoking is allowed outside only with absolutely no smoking inside. No illegal drugs are to be kept or consumed in the house.
Remove shoes at the top of the stairs if shoes are dirty or wet.
All guests must be registered. Please ask before inviting others over. There is a charge for additional overnight guests.
Be open with communication. I want you to be happy and will do whatever I can within reason to make your stay comfortable, so please let me know what you need.
There is room for one car in my driveway plus more on the street.
The separate area with refrig, microwave and coffee pot doesn't have full kitchen facilities. It's meant for coffee, an easy breakfast, etc., not cooking a full meal.
