Marine School-House Garden Cottage apartment unit converted to VRBO. This sunny apartment sits in the quaint, historic village of Marine, which is located on the St. Croix River just 10 miles north of Stillwater, MN. Sample an espresso or latte and chocolate croissant at Marine Cafe coffee shop, grab a burger or beer at the Brookside Bar and Grill, or head south to Stillwater for antiquing and additional restaurants. If you're the outdoor type, check out the many outdoor recreational opportunities of William O'Brien State Park or explore the rest of the St. Croix Valley offerings.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Marine is a great spot if you like a small, quiet Midwestern town on a beautiful river. The schoolhouse condo was perfect with nice furnishings and nicely appointed. Just what I was looking for. Thanks..........
Located on southern edge of William O'Brien State Park, for outdoor activities, or go antiquing 10 miles to the south in Stillwater.
