Living in one of Minnesota’s largest cities — Minneapolis, St. Paul, or even Duluth — often means trading in the space and freedom houses offer in favor of the flexibility and convenience apartments offer. But there’s a perfect middle ground that provides that spacious home feel without locking you into a location or a mortgage: a townhome. Renting a Minneapolis townhouse means you can finally say, “I’ll be upstairs,” and often, they come with the added bonus of basement storage — or laundry facilities. We’ve done some of the searching for you and dug up these four great townhomes for rent in MN.
Eight miles southwest of Minneapolis is the small city of St. Louis Park. Even if you work in the city, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom townhouse is nearly half the price of some of the newer two-bedroom apartments in the city, and sprawls 1,600 square feet. With a fireplace, spacious kitchen, porch, storage area, washer/dryer, and two-car garage, it’s more than worth the 15-minute drive to the city. Cats and dogs are welcome here, and you pup will enjoy walks around the on-site retaining pond with fountain.
Perhaps the drive is non-negotiable for you and you need a place in the city. In that case, this Minneapolis townhome is a wonderfully affordable option. For only $1,635 a month, you get three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a one-car garage, and in-unit laundry, just outside of Dinkytown. Its close proximity to the University of Minnesota also makes this townhome a great choice for students.
Finding a Minneapolis townhome with a location this central is no easy feat. In historic Loring Park, blocks from Central Minneapolis and Downtown West, this rental offers two- and three-bedroom townhomes are a short walk from some of the best dining and entertainment establishments in town, including the Walker Art Center, Orchestra Hall, and the Butcher & The Boar, which was recently voted one of the best restaurants in Minneapolis. These townhomes come with walk-in closets, in-unit laundry, off-street parking, as well as access to a fitness center, concierge, courtyard and business center. The homes are beautifully finished with wood floors and are bathed in natural light from oversized windows.
This townhome is actually in Plymouth, MN. Given its location, it’s a bit less walkable than some of the other Minneapolis townhomes we’ve looked as so far. However, it’s an incredible 2,080 square feet, with two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a loft, and a basement, plus walk-in closets, high ceilings, walk-out balcony, marble countertops, and a fireplace. You will need a car to navigate this neighborhood, but you’ll be able to park them in your two-car garage.
