#10 Southeast / Studio-1ba / Sleeps 2 to 3 / Big Balcony Glass House


Description - Amenities - Attractions - Activities - Shops and Services - Transportation 


Your studio and one bathroom space sleeps 3 in one queen size sleep number beds and one twin inflatable mattress. In addition, there are other units in this building that can sleep about twenty! (if you are interested set up a call for details, please.)

This unit has kitchen amenities, but no kitchen sink.  Microwave, bigger than the usual hotel room refrigerator, toaster, coffeepot, etc.  For that urge to _cook_, there is a patio in the rear of the building with a charcoal grill. 

The 3/4 bath is remarkable for the shower that dominates the whole unit... it is constructed with a radius glass block shower wall!  Shower well-equipped with fans and electrical outlets.  That is one reason this space is called the glass house.  Another is the giant east facing window. 

And last, but not least, the balcony deck larger than the apartment space!  Lovely sun on the balcony until just after noon. 

Shared laundry in building. 

Patio in back has picnic table and other seating, firepit and very large charcoal grill.

Free Buses in Minneapolis and St. Paul


Campus Connector (note:pdf download) offers free service between the St. Paul, East Bank and West Bank campuses of the University of Minnesota.   Designed for students, but they don’t check student ID. Does not connect to Downtown Minneapolis.


Take a Free Ride on select Nicollet Mall buses (Nicollet Mall stretches from one end of downtown Minneapolis to the other.) Seeing a lot of things downtown? Park at an end of this route for less money! Goes very close to Convention Center.




Bicycle Rental comes in many flavors…


https://www.niceridemn.org/bike_rental_shops/ tells you where to rent for your whole stay.


https://www.niceridemn.org/ is an interesting alternative. For $6 per day, you get access to a bike rental system centered on downtown Minneapolis. NOTE! There is a per trip charge for a trip of over 30 minutes! However you could hop skip and jump all over downtown with these bikes, for the daily or monthly fee.   Closest ride station is two blocks away from our Southeast spaces! So you could get a bike there, ride downtown in just a few minutes, and go from one site to another downtown, the museums and Lakes in Minneapolis, and some parts of St. Paul. With trips of under 30 minutes, there is no per trip charge, so it would just be the daily fee of $6.
