Tree House Luxury Stay
Perched high in the majestic arms of a 150 year old Burr White Oak tree. This cozy 1200 square foot, seven-room house not only has breathtaking views it also has enchanting and delightful surprises befitting of a fairytale. Climb 40 feet up onto the Observation Tower, where a telescope waits for you, ready to scan the night sky, and reveal the panorama of the heavens -- overlooking 500 acres of natural splendor right next door. Step into the hot, bubbling jets of the jacuzzi, or warm caress of the rain shower, and restore your spirits by soothing your muscles, melting away any residual tensions of the day. Get a restful sleep in one of our soft beds. In the morning, pad around on in-floor radiant heated floors (so cozy during winter-time.) Or enjoy your morning coffee on one of four outside decks. And don’t forget to solve the mystery of the Treehouse, that awaits your discovery within its wood beamed walls. This treehouse was custom designed by its architect with three dimensional chess in mind. Artisan architectural details are found throughout. Crystal chandeliers bedeck its high ceilings, and marble countertops grace the elegant, fully appointed kitchen. (A surround sound system helps set the mood for those special dinners in the dining nook.) One of two fireplaces adds luxurious touches to the primary bedroom with a queen bed, and hideaway bed in the secret room, along with a jacuzzi and rain shower in the primary bath, as well as a second bathroom in the secret room. Perfect for honeymooners, couples, business/corporate overnights, solo travelers and families with children over twelve years old. These are only a few of the many luxury details in this spectacular vacation spot must-see. Spend your days snuggled up beside the fireplace of your choice, while enjoying the panoramic views. You can stream your favorite movies and shows with Broadband Wi-Fi throughout the house. Come down for a leisurely walk around the grounds, and stop by to visit and feed the goats and chickens that call Hope Glen Farm their home in the corral of this historic farmstead. Bring your stress levels down and your heart rate up by walking over to Washington County Cottage Grove Park Reserve, just steps away, and answer its call to explore over 550 acres of fields and forests. Go hiking and biking down its trails, geocaching the hills and ravines for hidden treasures, or spend the afternoon fishing and kayaking in the lakes. And don’t let cooler temperatures keep you from discovering the pristine natural beauty of winter! Winter activities include cross country skiing and snowshoeing on the blankets of snow. Breathe deeply of the crisp Minnesota winter air -- truly one of life’s great pleasures. Plus, only a ten minute drive brings you to nearby Afton Alps in Afton State Park offering downhill skiing and snowboarding. For clarity, the Treehouse has 2 private bedrooms: Bedroom 1 is has a queen bed. Bedroom 2 has a bedroom with standard sofa bed with attached half bathroom, which is the secret room a must find. Give yourself the gift of this luxurious enchanting TreeHouse Suite in the treetops, for a enchanting vacation experience you'll never forget. Something to write home about!

Your guide to Minneapolis

All About Minneapolis

Denser and more vertical than its Twin City sister, St. Paul, Minneapolis is a dynamic contemporary city where art and culture rub elbows with parks, prairies, and the Mississippi River. To know Minnesota’s most populated city is to spend time in its diverse neighborhoods, each with its own distinctive vibe.

Downtown you'll find major sports stadiums and Nicollet Mall, where the city's major retail shops are decked out in tall glass windows. The 57-story IDS Center Tower overlooks the area and is also home to its own businesses in an urban park setting. Head a block west and you’ll stumble upon the Hennepin Avenue Theater District, home to the theaters that populate downtown with their bright neon signs, welcoming you to a late-night show. For wandering around, make sure to take advantage of the interconnecting Skyways (elevated walkways) to determine where to head first.

Just outside downtown, the North Loop is a former industrial zone now packed with the city’s buzziest restaurants, clothing boutiques, and hip cafes. A stroll over Stone Arch Bridge takes you to St. Anthony West, the oldest neighborhood in Minneapolis, with cobblestone streets lined with brick buildings showcasing upscale restaurants and trendy bars. If you’re craving a patch of green space from which to take in the fresh Minnesota air, Minneapolis Chain of Lakes Regional Park lies on the edge of the city and features miles of paths for biking and wandering along the shorelines of five lakes.


The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Minneapolis

With proper planning and lots of clothing layers, Minneapolis is a great year-round destination. Although winter can be brutally cold, it’s an excellent time to ice skate and cross-country ski in local parks or visit one of the many museums. Spring can get a bit soggy, but it is lovely to see the city wake up from its winter slumber. June through August is bursting with energy and festivals, including the Stone Arch Bridge Festival, which draws artists and musicians to the riverfront. The long hours of sunlight will also give you plenty of time to fit in plenty of hiking or swimming. This is the busiest time of the year, so keep that in mind when booking your Minneapolis vacation rental. In the fall, the temperature drops, and the leaves begin to change into brilliant shades of gold and red. This is a great time to visit some of the city’s scenic spots, go apple picking, or even catch a live football game.


Top things to do in Minneapolis

Stone Arch Bridge

Built for the Great Northern Railway in the 1880s, the Stone Arch Bridge is the second-oldest Mississippi River crossing in existence today. With its 23 Romanesque arches, which make it look more like a medieval European bridge than a railroad trestle, this iconic structure is now a pedestrian bridge connecting the historic neighborhood of St. Anthony Main and downtown.

Mill City Museum

Located along the Mississippi River, this museum was built among the ruins of an old 19th-century Minneapolis mill that blew up in 1878. The museum focuses on educating visitors about the mill’s role in the growth of the city. You can also ride the Flour Tower, a narrated freight elevator ride that will take you through the mill’s floors and give you a glimpse of what it was like that fateful day.

The Indoor Skyway

One of the unique things about Minneapolis is its system of interconnecting elevated walkways. Designed to clear up congested sidewalks and create additional retail space, the walkways have the extra benefit of protecting people from the harsh weather. They now also serve as vibrant public areas complete with art installations, cafes, and shops. As you walk through the nine miles of walkways, it sometimes feels as if you're walking in a hidden city within a city.
