This was a great airbnb situation. Jessica is offsite, but in frequent contact. The house has three rooms for guests, and so the entire house's spacious accommodations are part of the whole experience. Large and very functional kitchen, complete laundry facilities, dining room, s…

Jessica's home is a historic home in the heart of Anoka. It was really easy walking (5 minutes on average) to great restaurants and my favourite ice cream place (Two Scoops)! The house itself was a good size with a full kitchen, dining room, and living room. The bed in my room…

Everything was easy and straightforward with the house which is a lovely, grand old place. A very charming place. Close to everything in Anoka and easy to drive to Minneapolis.

Jessica is a lovely host and answers calls and question quickly. Pros: This house is comfortable and quiet - like staying at Grandma's. The location is excellent - Anoka is charming -(it's Garrison Keillor's hometown) and freeway access is close by so it's easy to get to th…

Response from Jessica:
Thank you Linnae for your feedback throughout your stay and after. I appreciate your prompting the possibility of cleaning services throughout the stay, I now have a few people to call at different price points should this come up again and for which guests would want to pay. The house is rented as more of a vacation rental where it's expected that guests will maintain the spaces in which they are living, and want to do so since the owner is not there full-time. All cleaning supplies and implements are provided. Cleaning fees are rated for shorter term stays and about an hour of cleaning services per room, which doesn't cover the common areas. The cleaning of one's own linens keeps this cost down, and the house gets cleaned in between guests so as to maintain the privacy of guests throughout their stay. Since there may be non-related individuals in the rooms, I always make sure that people are aware they may be sharing space with others, before they rent. I expect collaboration among individual adults in this more communal setting. I appreciate your input, understand the Momma Bear room is larger and may run a few degrees cooler than the other rooms. I was home the week you left, re: room, the latch on the window was better secured, vent flaps in basement were checked and optimized, and additional blankets are still available for those needing them. When I walked in, the place seemed really clean but was more thoroughly cleaned before I left. I’m glad you were able to enjoy the house and wish you all the best. It was really great working with you to try new things for the house, and consider other ways of doing things. Cheers!
