Winter wonderland: basement lodging in Robbinsdale (from 45 USD)

Trudge through the carefully shovelled roads to your new Airbnb basement home cosy enough for two. Located in the quiet Robbinsdale neighbourhood, you can enjoy the tranquil serenity of the falling snow while still being within 20 minutes of downtown Minneapolis, where all the winter festivals are being celebrated. Head down to your own private basement comfortably furnished with warm hues of burgundy, reminiscent of the passing autumn days. Lounge on the cushy long sofa if you’re tired from the drive up here, or light up a small fire by the electric fireplace to warm yourselves up from the freezing temperatures outside. Catch up on some sleep in the comfortable queen-sized bed lined with clean sheets. The soft glow that seeps in through the blinds create a warm atmosphere for you and your significant other to snuggle up in. Indulge in some light reading by the reading room. Stocked up with the host’s personal collection of books, feel free to browse through the classics, or you can finish that book that you’ve been meaning to read, but kept putting off due to your busy schedule. Now that you’re on vacation, there’s no excuse! Cook up a storm in the kitchen with the fully equipped kitchen. Find all the condiments you could possibly need on the top shelves, and you no longer have to bicker about who does the dishes - just dump all your dirty dishes into the dishwasher, and you’ll have clean plates for use tomorrow! We all know what a bummer work can be while you’re on vacation - if you have any urgent emails or projects to attend to while you’re away, bring your work into a comfortable environment using the work desk and roller chair provided.

Springtime serenity: georgian bungalow in Bryn Mawr (from USD 170)

Take a step into your paradise by staying over at this gorgeous Georgian-style home tucked away from the hustle of city life. Take a look around your spacious new home, furnished with oaken accents all around. The minimalist furniture adds a contemporary touch to the warm environment. Whip up a feast in the elaborate kitchen, complete with a stocked up fridge with all the ingredients you would need. Indulge in a few drinks on the bartop counter on lazy Saturday evenings while enjoying your homemade dinner on the classy dining table, or if the weather is nice, you can move outdoors and enjoy a scenic al fresco meal in the arms of nature. Springtime in Minneapolis may still get a bit chilly when the sun sets, so keep yourselves warm by lighting a small fire in the living room. Head out to the nearby Minneapolis Parks System that has a variety of bike trails, and paths for running and brisk walking. Visit the wildflower nature gardens - a beautiful sight to see especially during the blooming springtimes.
