Norman Ridge Gardens-The Spacious Charmer in the City

Lovely home base

  • 5 of 5
The house was a great home base for my seven college friends. The bathrooms were not a problem, as we all remembered taking turns in the sorority house (1960 era). The location was very convenient to many restaurants. We enjoyed sitting on the patio and then gathering at the large dining room table, when the weather turned wet and cool. I would recommend this home.

Very Spacious and Comfortable Accommodations.

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of nine that came to vacation and visit relatives in the Twin Cities. The house was clean, fully equipped and very spread out which gave everyone their own space. The location is close to the Hyland Reserves which has a lot of outdoor activities and is about 10 minutes from the Mall of America. It is very close to two major highways which made getting anywhere much easier. Cynthia was professional and very good at communicating all necessary information. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Clean, comfortable, and convenient - Norman Ridge

  • 5 of 5
It was great for a family reunion. The beds were comfortable, and the seating arrangement provided for visiting. The manager communicated with us very well. The listing description was accurate. The kitchen was a little difficult to work in because it is narrow and small. The outdoor barbecue was great for grilling. Two bathrooms was especially good for our large family. The house was well stocked for cooking with dishes, pans, and silverware, knives, etc. The TV and wifi worked fine. The washer and dryer worked well. Parking in front of the house was adequate. Trash and recycling containers were handy in the garage. We would recommend this house for a similar gathering.

Reasonably priced getaway for girls' weekend

Reasonably priced getaway for girls' weekend
  • 4 of 5
We came here for a girls' weekend. The accomodations were reasonably priced for our group and we enjoyed our stay here. The home is very convenient and there was enough space for each of us to have our own private room. Cynthia was very responsive in all communications. This is not a luxury rental, but, it is comfortable and suited our purposes of having a "home base" while going out to do things in the area in the day and evening. Thank you!

Comfortable house for family stay.

  • 3 of 5
The house was roomy and comfortable for our family during our stay in Minneapolis. It was conveniently close to everything we needed. It is an older home with a bit of a quirky layout, but the beds and rooms were warm and comfortable and we had everything we needed to spread out, relax and enjoy!

The quick responses from Celeste and Cynthia during the reservation process as well as during our stay were wonderful! I just got home and the deposit has already been refunded! THANK YOU for being so quick and efficient!
