About this property

Century Cottage-perfect for Mayo & Downtown Visitors!

In Lowertown-A quaint cottage with modern updates is your home away from home! Fully furnished and a well stocked kitchen make it a wonderful place for overnight stays or longer term rentals. Beautiful patio provides an urban sanctuary at the end of a long day. Close proximity to Mayo Clinic-downtown restaurants, grocery stores and shopping are within walking distance. Two blocks in either direction puts you on the trail system. Public transit 1 ½ blocks away and a laundromat is ½ block away. This home provides everything you need for a stay in Rochester: fully furnished, all kitchen essentials and if there is something you need just ask and we can probably provide it! This home's two bedrooms sleep 4 people comfortably. There is also a “bonus” room that could be used as a third bedroom with a queen size bed or pack-n-play available. (Additional guests over 4 are $10 per night) During the summer season we are happy to have you help yourself to what is growing in the backyard garden. We typically have asparagus, rhubarb, onions, tomatoes and peppers. You will have access to the 1 1/2 story home, the yard and patio. There is free street parking. The basement is private owner area. We live next door so can be available when needed. We are happy to share our knowledge of the Rochester area and of course our favorite restaurants! We LOVE our neighborhood as it provides us with the sustainable lifestyle that is important to us. We can walk or bike to most everything we need within 10 minutes. We try to be as environmentally conscious as possible so don't use any pesticides, insecticides or harsh chemicals inside or out. The home we live in has been featured in several articles in and around Rochester as we strive to achieve as close to net-zero energy use as possible. If you are interested in a tour let us know! This neighborhood is in the perfect setting; close to downtown but away from the main busy streets. Goose Egg Park (named for the shape ;-) is 2 blocks away and Silver Lake Park is 3 blocks away-so easy to take a little stroll on the paths or around the lake. The Design District at Cooke Park is another area situated in Lowertown with several shops to visit. 125 Live is one of the newest offerings in our neighborhood with classes, art shows and many other events happening. Rochester Farmer's Market operates year round in different locations on Saturday mornings and in the summer Wednesdays are added.

Family Celebration

Older home but had been updated very nicely. Was perfect for our purpose of our visit. Very comfortable. There is only one bathroom so if you have more than 4 people staying it could possibly be an issue, but it worked out fine for the 3 of us. Very nice property which we highly recommend.

5/5 Excellent

More than a cottage.

Wonderful property with all the trimmings. Comfortable and well-maintained. Wish we had time to take advantage of the beautiful patio area. Perfect, central location to be near everything downtown.

5/5 Excellent

Mayo trip

Quiet, calm, and cool home for our evenings after long days at Mayo. 5 minute drive and nicely stocked with supplies.

5/5 Excellent

Very nice place!

It is always clean and neat. Lots of thoughtfulness has gone into stocking the home for guests.

5/5 Excellent

Cozy cottage that was ideal for Mayo Clinic visit

Comfortable house with nice amenities, including handmade soaps, whole bean coffee with grinder and French press, toothbrushes and paste in case you forget yours. We had a lovely stay despite the record setting storm that had just come to town. Definitely recommend for others.
