How to start the Party!
Check in starts at 3:00 so you can make the most of the weekend with the girls. Insider Tip: Book directly and you get your choice of rooms. They have such a wide array of rooms, for every price. Some come with TVs and fireplaces, some come with secret bookshelf walls while others have claw foot tubs. One contains an old mafia desk with a bullet hole, while another has a goldfish aquarium in a unique place. You can find rooms of every shape and size in both the carriage house and the mansion. On this trip, to maximize the amount of time in your girls trip, rent out the carriage house exclusively with all your girlies! The carriage house has free arcade games, a pool table, a kitchen, a haunted movie lounge and rooms that can accommodate a wide variety of budgets.
Choose how you spend your time!
When you arrive, beyond taking in the beauty, you’ll need time to explore your many options of how you can spend the weekend with the girls. Everywhere you turn there is something more beautiful than the last room you were in. The house is an homage to the beauty of the new and old worlds colliding, it has beautiful antiques from some of the original owners, a plethora of historical books, beautiful gardens and they offer private and public hot tub passes, a private haunted movie lounge for showings, a various number of trolley tours and free coffee as well as a wine hour. There is no shortage of girls trip ideas to keep your group occupied.
Keep the party going for a day out on the town!
When you book directly with 300 Clifton you receive vouchers for free breakfast at a local favorite spot the Nicollet Diner. The weekends are a perfect time to take the breakfast trolley ride, which includes a tour around the lakes. Don’t fret, for those of your group that book with outside parties like Minneapolis Airbnb and Booking.com can purchase a voucher and a ticket on the trolley either at check in or online. Out of all the places to go with friends for breakfast, this one comes with a Cabaret, old chum! It’d be silly to kick off your morning anywhere else!
Where do you go after breakfast?
Below you’ll find a list of anywhere you could possibly think about going to in the Minneapolis area. The local favorites and hot spots for a memorable girls trip. 300 Clifton is so close to not one but two premier museums: The Walker Art Center and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. MIA was started by the man who gives his name to the 300 Clifton house you’re staying in, Eugene Carpenter! Anywhere you turn outside of this Bed and Breakfast will lead you to a cool, most likely historical, fun spot in Minneapolis.
Unwind In Gertrude’s!
After your fun day on the town your crew is bound to need some time to pamper yourselves. Treat yourselves to a night of movies and takeout! The chairs are massage seats. There are so many options for food around the area for everyone’s tastes and sensitivities. Some local favorites include: Red Cow, Gai Noi (rated in the New York times as one of 50 best new restaurants in America), and Namaste Cafe. Spend a fabulously spooky night unwinding in Gertrude’s with a scary movie.
