Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Pine Island - Rosie's House (guest room #1)

Large House On Scenic 30 Acres And River With Two Spare Unused Bedrooms

*****This is an owner occupied house, FYI.*****

Large country home on 30 acres just off Hwy 52 about 10 miles north of Rochester. 2 Large unused upstairs bedroom with each with two beds. If needed additional sleeping areas can be added to the room (I have couches that have pull out beds and air mattresses). I just recently put in new wood floors in most of the house (boy do my knees hurt!)...Now I'm working on finishing off the other projects

If you want to get away from busy city life this is the place for you! I have a 3 bed/2 bath house in Pine Island with 2 unused bedrooms (12' x 20') and full bath on the upper level that I would like see used and make extra $ to fund various projects I'm doing with the house and property. I have one cat(inside) and two dogs (mostly outside). And a few horses and cows running around. The house is just off 52 out in the country between Oronoco and Pine Island (I have 30 acres). The other room upstairs is also open to stay in if there is not one else scheduled to stay in it . The bathroom upstairs would be shared with whoever is staying in the other spare bedroom.

I am a nurse at Mayo Clinic and work 12 hr night shifts. I am very mellow, easy going and easy to get along with. House has central air, woodstove, sauna, washer/dryer, large porch in the front and a deck in the back of the house. I also have a large vegetable garden, a lot of apple trees, tons of asparagus and berries during the non-winter months you are welcome to that too! On the main level is the living room, dining room, kitchen, my bathroom and my bedroom. The basement is is on the 'to do' list of projects I have planned

In the front yard there is also a gazebo I've been rehabbing. In the previous owner's 'heyday' wedding ceremonies were held in it!

Also in the front yard there is a small one room cabin I am rehabbing to make as a living space. In there is a queen size bed and two couches that pull out into beds. This does not have running water, not adequately insulated and for electricity I have an extension cord running from the house . It's a work in progress. I joke to my friend it is 1/2 star accommodations since it is a bit like camping out. During the warm months here it would be a great place to crash if you wanted to use to camp out, use it as a fishing or hunting cabin.

About Rosalynn Sorensen

RN at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Grew up in Wisconsin on a dairy farm with 7 siblings, I can to get along with just about anyone! I love cheese :)Very spontaneous, bubbly, full of energy, sarcasm and wittiness, like to meet new people and see new places. I love doing home improvement a bit of a Martha Stewart/Bob Vila in I don't have Martha's felony convictions and Bob Vila's penis.

I love roadtrips, gardening, home improvement projects, fixing things that are broken (humans and machines) working with powertools, zombie and any sort of end-of-the-world/Apocalypse movies. Lately been addicted to watching TED talks and listening to NPR and a podcast 'How To Do Everything'. I might be a nerd?

Personal philosophy: Life is busy living or get busy dying. Yes that is a quote from 'Shawshank Redemption.' I am a nurse and see how short life is everyday I work.

Rosalynn Sorensen purchased this house in 2013

Zumbro River runs thru property, Douglas Bike trail nearby

A little slice of heaven out here....I love the privacy out here! Closest neighbors are thru the woods and down the road. Country not in the a quick drive to Rochester. I live near hwy 52, you can hear the traffic. My neighbors are great if you happen to run into them.

Currently fencing off most of the property for pasture. I may have a few cattle and other animals roaming around. a horse soon to come....

The Zumbro River run thru the will frequently see bald eagles and hawks soaring the skies. My dogs are doing their part to feed the local eagle/hawk population... I have seen the eagles eating the animals my dogs kill.

What makes this house unique

My little slice of heaven with nature all around. Zumbro River runs thru. Privacy and seclusion and two of the nicest dogs and cat you'll ever meet

Two of the nicest dogs to human, Kody and Daisy. In there past owners lives they both were hunting may see the occasional 'catch' of a squirrel, rabbit, raccoon etc they are using their hunting skills on. I am dreading the day they encounter a porcupine :-/

Great Host -- Almost Like Home!

  • 5 of 5

Let's say you have a college friend with a place out in the country with two huge bedrooms and a full bathroom upstairs. You stay in comfort with WiFi, USB charger next to the bed, plenty of towels, soap, shampoo, dental floss, a sweet ironing board with two irons. and blow drier for your hair. In short, all the comfort of a hotel with the homy-ness of a Midwest farm. Refrigerator and freezer for YOU, and washer and drier in the basement. Plenty of land if you want to walk around outside, and a couple of big mellow dogs to tag along with you outside, and inside a very sweet kitty cat.

Rosie is delightful

  • 5 of 5

Cute house and the owner is working hard on the property to make it a nice place to stay. She works hard as a nurse, and appears just as hard at her beautiful property. It's not a hotel (although she had things set up as nice as some hotels we have stayed at.) Don't expect perfect, but it was perfect for us! We loved Rosie, the dogs, and her lovable kitty.
