Walk to oldest operating general store in Minnesota, oldest operating Post Office in Minnesota, best pizza on this side of the Atlantic at Olive's Wood Fired Pizza Bar (no kidding, really, Thur-Sun 5-8 only), Brookside Bar and Grill, St. Croix River or the Stonehouse Museum (Weekends 2-5:00 p.m.), or Marine Cafe coffee shop (Wed-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.

The School House Apartment was really quiet, had great water pressure with plenty of hot water, and firm beds. The kitchen was functional, but a little tired. The humidity has been hard on the wood finishes, what you’d expect from an older MN summer home. We appreciated the shampoo/conditioner and hair dryer provided. Coffee and a hodgepodge of grocery we’re also provided. Some tea bags would have been a nice addition. Kitchen could also use salt and pepper shakers and tongs.
Perfect location for a home base to explore Twin Cities & Stillwater
My husband and I had never been to Minnesota and originally had planned to stay in Stillwater. It was rather expensive since Lumberjack Days was in full swing. Instead I found this apartment in nearby Marine on St. Croix. What a charming little town! I enjoyed shopping at general store and we had a great meal at Brookside Bar & Grill. It was also easy access to Stillwater (which is also charming) and the Twin Cities. David, our host, made sure we had everything we needed. We learned what Minnesota Nice meant. We would definitely recommend the place. My only suggestion would be to add ottomans for the living room chairs to be more comfortable.
Incredible stay in Marine
Great! We stayed over the Holidays, wonderful holiday touches inside and outside. David met us at check in, we enjoyed our stay. Definitely will be back!!
Fun area to explore!
Accommodations were great! Communications with the owner very helpful and timely. Would stay again - beautiful area. Great food within walking distance. Thank you!
Perfect Space for 2 ladies
Safe, comfortable neighborhood with a nice bar and grill within walking distance. We were visiting friends in Stillwater, which was just a short drive each day. We also enjoyed hiking at WIlliam O'Brien State Park. The amenities in the apartment were above and beyond! Thanks to our hosts.
Very nice place to stay. Nice bar and restaurant across the road! Would stay here again.
Marine on St. Croix is located on the southern edge of William O'Brien State Park, great for outdoor activities, or go antiquing 10 miles to the south in Stillwater.
