|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Enjoy the views from 3 decks over looking the St Croix River.
Walk downtown and enjoy Stillwater’s historic main street with fabulous restaurants, boutiques, antiques stores, charming old pubs and beautiful parks.
There are a number of activities in the area to keep you entertained such as golfing, spas, kayaking, boating (rentals), cave tours, winery & brewery tours, historical tours, bike/hiking trails, segway tours and paddle boat cruises.
Our home has 6 bedrooms with 5 that are in the home and 1 is in the bonus room above the garage. This is a late 1800's home restored in 2005 with a modern flare. Some of the house has original flooring where other areas are newer. This home is full of room with a large kitchen and family room. The home is on a quiet corner lot and little traffic.
Bonus room (6th bedroom) is optional and available beyond 10 guests. There is an additional fee for this room and we require a minimum of one adult to occupy.
You will find our home to be very inviting and we take pride in how exceptionally clean we keep the home. As you will notice each room will have its own flair.
We have parking allowed for up to 5 vehicles only and
No Events Allowed! Our home is for overnight guests only!
We are married with grown children so we call that 'empty nested'. We love St Croix River, Stillwater and the general area. We enjoy boating and usually stay on our boat most of the warm weather season so our house is vacant and available at least 6 months out of the year. We decided to rent out vs. sell until we decide what we would like to do next. It is a big house for just the two of us so we decided to try VRBO since it is a nationally known site and introduces our home to more parties.
Barbra and Kirk Ackerman purchased this house in 1999
Quiet neighborhood, beautiful home and views.
Our home is known to be very clean and you will
have all the comforts of knowing this at check in.
The home will be all ready for your stay.
We love our location and Stillwater area is home to us.
The views of the St Croix, location and peaceful neighborhood.
Our home has been utilized by many groups but most often times families of wedding parties. Our home allows families to be together with having the comforts of home.
We will be happy to assist with any planning during your stay and have a good list of restaurant recommendations. We would be happy to make any or all reservations needed!
Barb and Kirk were GREAT! Very responsive and willing to let us check in early as we were arriving before their normal check in time. Very friendly, offered tons of suggestions. You can't go wrong with this place especially if you have a large group. THANKS AGAIN!!!!
My group and I were so excited to stay in this beautiful home. We actually did have a fantastic stay and left feeling really good about our weekend trip. Unfortunately, two weeks later we were notified of messes or damages that our group caused. We took full responsibility and were deeply apologetic for a spill on carpet that was not noticed or brought to my attention while we were there. Thankfully it was able to be removed and understandably, $50 was taken from our damage deposit for this. No argument there. There was apparently damage to finish on a mini fridge (which we were notified of two MORE days after we were notified of the spill) that we absolutely do not take responsibility for.
What really irked me is the accusing and judgmental nature of the owner when we were trying to sort things out. I always responded promptly and politely to any communication and did my best to get to the bottom of the issue they brought to us. As anyone can imagine, sometimes with a large group, accidents can happen. Our group of women are respectful adults, professionals and mothers, who would NEVER do anything intentional to damage or leave someone's home in an unacceptable state. The owner called us "dishonest" and said we treated their home with "pure negligence." I can assure you, these statements are not true and I am still very offended by her comments.
It was a clean, beautiful place to stay, but if you are not prepared to be accused and insulted long after you leave, do not stay in this home.
For the second year our group of eight girlfriends enjoyed a fall weekend at this home. The spacious kitchen allows working room for those who cook and for just hanging out on the bar stools and high top table nearby. We also enjoyed the quiet neighborhood during our afternoon hor d'oeuvres and wine time on the deck.
The home has always been clean and the customer service is great. The owners make the process easy and have always answered all our questions quickly.
I would not recommend. Listed as walking distance to downtown, is misleading. Loft could use a bathroom. Communication after the fact is horrific. Two weeks later we were informed of 'damages' that were found from us.
I would recommend this home to anyone wanting to visit Stillwater. Close to all the shopping, restaurants & all in walking distance. Spectacular Home!
Our stay at this VRBO home is our second opportunity to use a VRBO home for a family gathering of 4 siblings, spouses, and family members. As we come from 3 different states, we prefer to gather in one location and not have to be spread out throughout hotels. We found this home in Stillwater to be beautiful, extremely comfortable, super clean, and a great opportunity for all of us to be under one roof. We had 8 adults and 1 teen gathering this year and all fit comfortably in the 5 bedroom home. The garage apartment would have provided extra space had we needed it. The neighborhood is quiet. We spent most of our time touring, biking, walking, and just hanging out in the Stillwater and Mpls/St. Paul metro area. This home is comfortable and amenities like hand soap, towels, laundry facilities, etc. were provided. We would recommend this home to anyone.
Walking distance to downtown with many shops and resturaunts to enjoy!
Stillwater has a Winery and new Brewery available to visit and tour.
