The SpaceThis space allows guests to make themselves at home within a home. The guest bedroom is a favorite room of the apartment, with bright sunny vibes and tons of natural light which flood the room and make it the ideal location to wake up refreshed. Simple, clean, and charming with a hint of spring, this room is a traveler's dream.
The apartment has a comfortable feel and a cozy atmosphere. There is a fully equipped kitchen, living room with TV, and bathroom with tub and shower. There is new flooring throughout the apartment along with some retro details, giving the space an eclectic feel.
The building is secured and in a safe neighborhood so guests can relax and trust they're in good hands. There are also locks on all room doors for those who are wary of strangers and/or want their space. Guest AccessGuests have access to all areas of the apartment save for the host bedroom. Fresh towels, wash cloths, body wash, and shampoo are provided for all guests. There is on-site laundry (coin-operated), an iron and ironing board, and hair dryer available for use as well.
Guests who would like to cook during their stay are welcome to use the kitchen and all utensils. A light breakfast of bread/toast, spreads, and fruit is included and complimentary tea and coffee are provided during the stay. There is also a Keurig for use in the kitchen.
Free wifi, a TV with HBO, Hulu, & Netflix, books, crafts, coloring books, journals, movies, a piano keyboard, a yoga mat, free weights, and card games available for guest entertainment and make this space great for those traveling with little ones. Interaction with GuestsWe as hosts (my boyfriend and I) are available for anything and are happy to socialize, but we also give guests as much space as they would like and respect the wants and needs of our guests. Both of us work full time and so we will be around on and off throughout the day. We understand there will be travelers who want privacy and those would like more company. This is your experience and we are happy whatever you prefer:)
Hosts can provide recommendations for delicious local eateries, bars, cafes, exercise centers, or the like. We began using this application as guests first and so we are happy to cater to anything guests need to have the best stay possible.
Check-in is flexible and we are willing to cater to guests who are coming into town late/early. We can meet with guests to provide a key or leave a key in our absence. The NeighborhoodThe building is conveniently located in the heart of Grand Forks. It is a 5-minute drive to Interstate (I-94), 6 minutes to Altru, 8 minutes to the UND campus, and 8 minutes to the Downtown area. There is a movie theater, bars, malls, a grocery store, and a library all within walking distance. In the warmer months, the Greenway is a short bike ride away and there are some beautiful parks nearby.
The major restaurants in town are right down the street. The building is also very close to Target, Walmart, and Hugos for grocery shopping or last minute supply runs. Getting AroundThere is free guest parking in the middle parking lot spaces marked "V". If those spaces are full there is also street parking in front of the building.
Pickup/drop-off at airport can be provided by host upon request for additional charge. Other Things to NoteIf a larger party is looking to stay, there is a good quality queen size air mattress and two couches available for use.
Our cat Hobo lives in the apartment with us. He is friendly and not a bother to guests.
