Nestled on a hillside in beautiful Stillwater Minnesota, Scenic Overlook Cottage overlooks one of the most beautiful waterways in the Midwest; the St. Croix River. This cottage is attached to a French Normandy-style house and is a very private, ample 1200 square feet. A European immersion experience will enhance this perfect spot for a getaway. This special and memorable home has been highlighted in Better Homes and Gardens. It is a premium property at a preferred location.
It is located within a comfortable 25-minute walk (will soon be on the new Stillwater City path which will follow the river to town). At the bottom of your cottage driveway is Stillwater’s southern scenic overlook . Take your picnic hamper right out your door and enjoy the life this beautiful river has to offer.
Sweeping French doors into a bedroom, a full kitchen and bar, living and dining room area and a bathroom with shower all on one level makes the cottage easily accessible and livable for short stays or an extended stay. There are a lot of great restaurants, sightseeing and activities within easy reach. Bikers Welcome! The owners are friendly, easily reached and offer prompt service. We look forward to meeting you.
Louise and Martin are both European and their home reflects it. Louise is from England while Martin is from Switzerland. As soon as they found this home set high on the hills overlooking the St. Croix River, Martin felt at home. It was reminiscent of his childhood home in Switzerland. Louise took great joy designing and decorating the home in a style similar to her Grandparents farmhouse in Cheshire, England. Better Homes and Gardens took note when they featured the home in their magazine.
Louise Fenner purchased this cottage in 1994
The property is in a preferred location just 8/10 of a mile south of downtown Stillwater. It is an easy drive and just a 25 minute walk. By the end of 2016 it will be on the river walk into town. There has never been a bad review on this property. You will understand when you see the meticulous attention paid to every detail to make it a premier property and a delightful stay.
Thank you for a lovely stay! Comfortable, relaxing, peaceful - just what we needed! You have done a great job decorating and preparing those great "extra's" for travelers. The yard is gorgeous. Stillwater is such a beautiful little town. We loved looking through shops downtown, morning coffee and breakfast at Tin Bins, the Paddleboat cruise and even getting to the Mall of America. Thanks again!
We were so thrilled with our stay at Scenic Overlook Cottage. We wanted a CLEAN and HOMEY atmosphere for our Christmas Holiday with friends and family. Everything we needed was available for our use. Kitchen had a nice supply of dishes and cooking materials. Loved to have the dishwasher as an extra perk. The bed and bedding were very comfortable. The open plan for living and dining was a true delight. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations. We're hoping to rent the cottage in the future. Fall would be amazing.
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Stay at Scenic Overlook Cottage. The rooms are beautifully decorated in antique English decor. There is an expansive view toward the St. Croix River valley and it is just minutes from Stillwater. We had an exceptionally comfortable stay an the hosts we very accommodating. We would definitely stay there again.
We were attending our niece's wedding this past weekend and had a WONDERFUL stay at this property. Beautiful, Clean and Super Comfortable! Loved every single thing about this place. The view was spectacular, and the fireplace was an added bonus on a cold winter's day.
We woke up Sunday morning to 2 inches of snow, and Martin had already cleaned off our car and was shoveling the sidewalk and driveway! Thank you for being so attentive to our needs. We plan on returning next year for our nephew's wedding and hope the cottage is available again. We would definitely come back!
Thank you again and Happy Holidays!

Wish we could have stayed longer! We have stayed in several VRBO's. This is my number 1! Stillwater was a wonderful surprise for these Texans! The Scenic Overlook Cottage is aptly named! Spacious, clean, comfortable, and feels like home at the end of the day. We walked to town and back along the river. Louise was MOST helpful in answering questions and communicating through email prior to our arrival. The neighborhood for her property is so very nice! Book this property! You will be glad you did!
Had a wonderful stay at the cottage. What a bright, and wonderfully appointed place to relax and enjoy the fall colors, and the town of Stillwater.
Great place!! My husband and I stayed here for a two-day retreat/recovery after our wedding in late October. We did end up driving everywhere based on the location, but the location is still pretty close to the main shopping and eating area of town.
