Yes, we offer an urban villa experience at Longfellow Villa. In Roman times a villa rustica was a remote country estate where an upper class family would seasonally reside. A villa urbana was a country inn that would house travelers for a night or two en route to a destination or as a holiday site away from the city.

While Longfellow Villa isn’t located in the country, it is located outside the hustle and bustle of downtown Minneapolis. We do provide travelers a friendly short-term rental apartment for as many days as you like, whether you are passing through town or looking for a relaxing spot after a busy day in the city. We also cater to professionals who prefer our homey executive suite to corporate lodging.

Mostly, our villa provides old-world charm. We’ve restored the apartment with classic wood, granite, brass, and chrome details—no plastic nor chipboard cheap replacements. We’ve sought out mid-century solid wood furniture in excellent condition. Still, we modernized the kitchen and bathroom and added wifi and a Smart TV, so you benefit from the best of the old and new.
