Private bedroom with nature theme is 10 minutes to both downtown Minneapolis or St. Paul by car.

We love to share our unique home with others. It was designed by my husband, architect Kevin Busch. It is very open, yet private at the same time.
Your room(s) will be on the upper level and we live on the main level. You have a private room, an over-sized double roomed full bath plus a half bath powder room that are shared. There is also a game/conversation area upstairs in the loft near your room.
We are a baseball family and love to host current and former players. My husband and all three sons played NCAA division 1 baseball. One coached D1 and the other currently coaches a D2 team part time.
We most frequently host visiting scholars for the University of Minnesota, people attending concerts and sporting events in the Twin Cities, traveling college students, visitors to Mall of America or State Fair and have had many guests from all over the world.
In season we will serve you fresh blueberries, black raspberries, cherries, strawberries and honey crisp apples - all of which we grow ourselves. Secluded country like living feel but convenient to everything in both Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Breakfast is served in our eat in kitchen area that overlooks our flower and vegetable gardens and our apple trees.
The back deck with giant umbrella and table and chairs, secluded fabric hammock hidden under pine trees and comfy chairs on the front porch are all available for your enjoyment.

I am a early 60's feel like 40's mom of 3 adult sons who live away. Am a registered dietitian, author and community activist. I enjoy gardening, cooking and reading. We are a big baseball family. All of my sons and husband Kevin played NCAA Division 1 baseball. I enjoy travel and have been to every US state except Hawaii. Have been fortunate to visit Germany, Spain, England, Holland, Austria, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, France, Hungary, Greece, Mexico, Canada, and most of the Caribbean Islands.
Our home is located right between Minneapolis and St. Paul. 10 minutes to either downtown but we live in what feels like the countryside. We are surrounded on three sides by U of MN agricultural fields and our large and unique home is at the end of a dead end cul-de-sac. North of our home is private and community garden farmlands. We have a large, lovable Golden Retriever 2.5 year-old Brooks. Friendly neighbors of all ages.
I enjoy reading historical fiction and mysteries and tending my flower gardens. If you visit us at harvest time we grow tomatoes, strawberries, blueberries, black raspberries, cherries and Honey Crisp apples that we love to share with our guests.
Kevin is an architect who designed our home, an avid cyclist and enjoys all types of sports. He owns his own firm and works in downtown Minneapolis.
Recently returned from 2+ weeks abroad and my first stays as a guest in Airbnb's. Brought back ideas that will make my international guests feel more at home!
