About David and Robin

We are locals in the community and have made this wonderful apartment unit available to people in search of a place to return home for family visits, a stay for local wedding, weekend relaxation or exploration getaway.

Why David and Robin chose Minnesota

Walk to oldest operating general store in Minnesota, oldest operating Post Office in Minnesota, Brookside Bar and Grill, St. Croix River or the Stonehouse Museum (limited summer hours), or Marine Cafe coffee shop (Thur-Sun limited hours). Drive a short distance to Stillwater shops and restaurants or explore the scenery of the St. Croix Valley heading North from O'Brien state park to Taylors Falls.

Everything walking, biking, or short drive away.

Not what we expected

  • 2 of 5

We loved the town but not our little apartment style place.

More spacious than it looks on the photos

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised to find that the little apartment was more spacious than it looked in the photos. With high ceilings and plenty of room to move about the living room beckoned every time we opened the front door and we made generous use of it. The bathroom counter had enough space for two people to comfortable park their travel necessities and the spacious bedroom contained a comfortable bed.

And then there is the location. Marine on St Croix is a walkable little town with good food, a local market, a post office and a bank... all with easy walking distance. Next time i visit the Minneapolis St Paul area I will definately book here.

little condo on the St. Croix

  • 4 of 5

The condo is well furnished and has everything you need for a weekend away. Marine on the St. Croix is such a charming little community in a beautiful setting.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described...no surprises. The unit was clean and everything worked. David provided some basic food items--including coffee and wine--which were a nice touch.

David provided accurate directions to the property and how to access the unit. We were very happy with our stay and would certainly stay there again if visiting the area.

pleasant stay

  • 4 of 5

First of all, it's difficult to find a full furnished one-week rental, so that was a good find. While being an older refurbished building, it was nicely decorated, clean, had all the comforts of home with extras. We liked the easy parking and access. In total, we would never stay at a motel again if we had access to such accommodations. June and Cliff
