My husband and I travel frequently for pleasure and are quite selective about where we stay. Upon visiting our daughter, a student at UMN, she sought out places near her 'cozy' apt. so our comfort would be assured. Kelly, the owner of Wales House, was exceptionally forthright in allowing her to see the spaces and answer very precise questions. We could not have been happier with her decision to choose this wonderful home. From the surprise of air-conditioning which was actually cooler in the sleeping rooms upstairs to the comfortable feeling you get immediately from his wife, Julie, who gave us our keys and initial information, our experience in this residence became one of the features of our visit. We felt the warmth this family has poured into the restoration of this historic structure. See our pics below, and treat yourself to the space outside the 'box'. Join those who dare to be different wherever you travel, but stay at Wales House if you're in Minneapolis!

For the past 20 years, we have been the lodging of choice for visiting scholars, researchers, physicians and others for stays ranging from two nights to one year. Many of our guests return for more visits once they experience the friendly atmosphere, appealing spaces and great value for which Wales House has become known. Please note, we are NOT a B&B, but a guest house. Accordingly, we offer a light, organic continental breakfast. ... more less
