About The Cottages of Southern Minnesota


We currently have two locations in Austin, Minnesota, which each offer a unique housing option and vary in levels of services offered;

West Park, is a Board & Lodge, this site can support 11 individuals living comfortably.

204 House, is a 245D licensed Community Residential Setting (CRS), 204 can support 4 individuals living here.

These residential neighborhoods are in high demand because of their location so close to many services as well as job opportunities and community activities.  The homes were built in the early 1900's and structurally offer beauty and character to go along with ample space for communal activities or to get away for some quiet time.  The homes are two story structures with all of the bedrooms on the upper levels, the homes have not been modified for accessibility.

We also offer Individualized Home Supports, this service would be provided in your own home or setting outside of The Cottages.   For more information inquire with us.

If you would like to know more about what we have available and take a tour please inquire about placement.
