In Minnesota, you can find a spacious Twin Cities home rental, complete with yard, garage, basement, and all of the other benefits homeownership can provide — with none of the financial gambling, maintenance costs, or expensive property tax payments.
Below, we’ve done some of the legwork for you and dug up five beautiful Twin Cities home rental options, but if these get snapped up or you have other particulars in mind, we still have you covered: Head to ABODO.com, type in Minneapolis, and select the “house” filter.

For only $2,500 a month, you could reside in this spacious, charming pet-friendly home. It boasts four bedrooms and two bathrooms, just outside of the vibrant Dinkytown neighborhood. This home rental has a large yard, off-street parking, hardwood floors, and comes with all appliances, including a washer and dryer. The best part? All lawn and snow maintenance is taken care of for you.
In Minneapolis’ Prospect Park neighborhood, this home about two blocks from the Mississippi River, waterfront trails, and the Mississippi River Recreational Area. It comes equipped with four bedrooms, three bathrooms, dining room, sunny screen porch, and patio. Plus, one of those bathrooms is a master bath off the main bedroom. There’s an attached two-car garage, so you never have to step foot in the cold Minnesota winter. The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. Water, cable, and trash pickup is all wrapped up in your rent, of just $2,500 a month.
Also in the Prospect Park neighborhood, this three-bedroom home is steps away from University Avenue, and about two blocks from the nearest light rail station, which will take you directly to the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Management handles snow removal, lawn care, and the cost of your street parking permit — but in this walkable neighborhood, you might not even need a car. The 1,300-square-foot home also comes with a charming breakfast nook, pantry, basement, porch, yard, and garden. Beautiful woodwork and the recently renovated kitchen and bathroom make this home a must-see.
Nestled in West St. Paul, this ranch-style rental gives you more space at a lower cost than many Minneapolis home rentals. Blocks from the Somerset Country Club in a quiet neighborhood, this four-bedroom, one-bathroom home sprawls more than 2,000 square feet, and attached two-car garage, all for $2,175 a month. The kitchen has stainless appliances and endless cabinets for storage, with a large patio that opens off the dining area. The living room and basement each have a cozy fireplace, and though there’s just one bathroom, it conveniently has two sinks.
Blocks from the popular Uptown neighborhood of Minneapolis, this is a rare find. It’s in a very walkable area, yet it offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a fenced-in yard — perfect to let your pup outside. This home was recently remodeled with new stainless steel appliances, countertops, cabinets, and windows, which means lower utility bills. Despite the recent updates, it maintains a classic old feel, with dark classic woodwork, French doors, and vintage lighting.
