The SpacePlease NOTE: Children are welcomed! However, if your child is over 2 years old and will sleep in one of the beds, please count him/her when booking. Our 2 dogs are friendly, never allowed in the suite, & do not interact w/guests. You only see them in our front window & from the large picture windows that face the backyard from the private suite :)
The private suite is perfect for the biz traveler(s), vacationer(s), looking for a quiet get away, or individuals needing a quiet space to unwind. It has a separate entrance with 3 bedrooms, a large living room w/ all amenities, and a full bathroom. Each bedroom has a comfy queen size bed, 2 night tables, wall mirror, a dresser, and a closet.
The space can host 6 comfortably. Each bedroom has a queen size bed that sleeps 2 per bed. However, there are 2 large couches in the living room and can technically sleep 8. So, if you have a group of 8 & would like to stay here, please contact us and we will allow the booking. We do not rent to guests who don' t know each other. What we mean by that is if you rent the space and you're travelling alone, you will be in the space alone. We will simply lock the unused bedrooms. If you are a couple, we will open only one bedroom.
The apartment suite has 1 full bathroom w/shower and tub combo, vanity. The bathroom has fresh towels, shampoo, hair dryer, etc.
In the living room there are two large couches, a coffee table, large, flat-screen TV, DVD player, a printer for the biz traveler or to print off boarding passes, a dining room table that seats 8 ppl, a buffet with dishes, glassware, knives, forks, etc., a full-size fridge w/freezer, microwave, toaster oven, Keurig coffee machine, and electric kettle.
As well, there is a gas fireplace and large-screen and internet access.
NOTE: Our place is not suited to those looking to cook on a stove a daily basis, as the kitchen is NOT included in the private suite. However, the kitchen is adjacent to the living room through a locked door, and we would allow guests who wish to use the kitchen to so so occasionally. We would work out a schedule, which would be easy, as it is just my husband and me. Guest AccessGuests will have complete privacy in the 3 bedroom apartment suite, which has its own private entrance. We live on the property, but do not share the suite with our guests. Guests are welcomed to relax on the lounge chairs in the front garden, weather permitting. However, we ask that you do not go in the backyard without permission. We do have 2 dogs, and although they are quite friendly, we would prefer to avoid any issues. Interaction with GuestsWe will greet you upon arrival to welcome you, give you the keys and review the House logistics and Rules. During your stay we will have no physical interaction with you in that we do not share the space where you will stay. However, either my husband or I will clear all dishes from the table and empty the trash daily after you leave. You will see us coming and going and working in the backyard. We live on the other side of the property. Our home is divided in two. The guest side, which is your private suite as described. We are on the other side. The two sides are separated by locked doors that lead to our kitchen and a game room. We are easily available via cell phone if something arises that needs attention. The NeighborhoodOur home is conveniently located 10 minutes by car from the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport, and five minutes by car from the famous Mall of America and the new premium outlet mall on Highway 13.
We are 15-20 minutes, in non-rush-hour traffic, from downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul, depending on time of day and weather. During rush hour, 7-8:30 AM and 4:30-6 PM, plan on a 25-30 minute drive to get to either downtown area. Non-rush hour you can make it in 15 minutes.
Grocery stores - Hyvee, Byerly's, Cub Foods, Walmart - and shopping malls are minutes away by car.
There are extensive bicycle trails close by. We do have two adult and 3 kids' bicycles that we will allow guests to use at their own risk. However, please note that if you break it, it's yours.

A 15-minute drive will take you to downtown Minneapolis or St. Paul in non-rush-hour traffic. Getting AroundThe Blue Metro line runs from the airport to the Mall to downtown Minneapolis. The Blue Line connects to the newly launched Green Line Metro line, which connects Minneapolis & St. Paul. However, it is best to have a car if you are staying in Eagan and want to travel back and forth to Minneapolis/St. Paul. Many of our guests use Uber. Other Things to NoteWe have two dogs that you'll see playing in the backyard from the picture window of your suite that looks out on our backyard. They do alert us to visitors and will let us know when you arrive. You will see them in our front picture window. PLEASE DO NOT APPROACH DOGS OR TRY TO PLAY WITH THEM when they are in the backyard without permission. They are friendly, but we prefer to avoid any issues. Thank you!
