TwinLakesFacilityFront With love and gratitude to all who made the purchase of this beautiful home possible! We present to you Crescent Cove, a place of respite for kids and families! THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!!!

This beautiful 6,700 square foot home will serve the needs of families who arrive for respite or to care for their child at the end-of-life. It is surrounded by pristine beauty on Twin Lakes just outside of Minneapolis and includes the many spaces necessary to care for children and families.
