The Bobbin House Suite is short-term lodging which accommodates one or two travelers who appreciate the arts and want an alternative to the usual lodging choices available.

The suite is the entire second floor of Bobbin House Studio, and is a private and totally secure three-room space with sitting room, bedroom, and ceramic tiled bathroom.

Fully furnished to accommodate one or two guests; it has 2 twin-size "Sleep Number" beds, 2 closets, 2 dressers, 2 recliners, desk, dining table and chairs, big-screen TV and DVD player, assorted books, games and a few classic movies.

The task lamps in the sitting room are even fitted with full-spectrum lamps! Rooms have ceiling fans and are individually heated and air-conditioned for maximum personalized comfort.

There is a secure storage closet for stowing suitcases and other items.

The comfortable ambience and whimsical decor are intended to put you in the mood for fun and creativity.

Sorry, we don't provide breakfast. Guests share the fully-equipped kitchen with Bobbin House Studio on the first floor, where we've provided free coffee and tea which you can brew to your own liking.

Plus you can do light cooking, including those late-night snacks! And, the award-winning "Cupcake" coffee cafe is just a few steps away.

See our food links page for more local dining options that we and our guests have enjoyed.

SHORT-TERM LODGING IN THE CENTER OF THE TWIN CITIES

Thanks for visiting our site. On these pages you'll find everything you'll need to know about us and you'll find lots of helpful information for use during your stay. Be sure to check out our links pages to see nearby restaurant and entertainment options.

Even a rainy day is fun for reading on the front porch. We have off-street parking for one vehicle, but the light rail train is so nearby, that you won't need to drive to a restaurant, grocery store or entertainment!

suite entry

It's the second-happiest place on earth! For travelers who appreciate the textile arts and crafts, the whimsy starts at the entry door on the second-floor. Custom-painted and textured walls and movie-theater carpet create a one-of-a-kind environment so you know you're going to feel comfortable and creative! Built-in night lights in all rooms will keep you sure-footed even when it's dark.

The sitting room is ready for your relaxation and enjoyment. Recliners, TV, DVD, radio/CD player, desk, table & chairs, books, games, and classic movies make having fun easy. Original art (much of it for sale) decorates the walls.

 

bathroom bedroom

The sparkling bathroom is fully ceramic-tiled. The shower has a bench seat! A storage cabinet will hold your toiletries. In short, it's everything you'll need to feel fresh and ready to go (even a hair dryer is provided!)

The cozy bedroom has two of everything so it's easy to share with a fellow traveler. 100% Cotton sheets, clock radio with media-docking station, reading lamps, dressers, closets, full-length mirrors, extra pillows and blankets, will make your stay comfortable. A door between the sitting room and bedroom provides privacy.
