Wonderful and Relaxing Escape

  • 5 of 5

There are just so many good things to say about this property....

The house itself is charming and in a nice neighborhood. The decor is very tasteful, neat and in good condition. It feels like you are staying at a friendly relative's house rather than in a rental property - a very good "homey" feel. The kitchen is great - with an island as well as a table for a nice dinner with family and friends. The bathrooms are very nice and well maintained. We loved sitting outside out on the porch - but were glad to be able to escape back inside to the air conditioning!!

You have many choices with this house. You could easily hang out and relax the entire time you are there (with a very short walk to a nice park on the lake). If you need to get out - it is an easy drive to the town of White Bear Lake where one can find shops, lakeside bars and dining. There are three or four great places in a row there along the lake - including the VFW which is open to the public and has a great view of the lake with friendly service. Just a bit further away is Stillwater (on the lovely St. Croix river) which is a great place to spend a day.

Finally, the owner was very nice and accommodating. Once we checked in, we received a text making sure that everything was to our liking. She really seemed to care that we were happy with the property. We will definitely return to this house in the future!

Great for family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

I was so happy to find a house to rent so close to White Bear Lake that would accommodate my family of six. Jane was so gracious to allow me to have my family reunion there on a Sunday afternoon that included relatives from all over St Paul and beyond. Many people commented how the house was perfect for our gathering, with the deck off the dining room and the front porch. The kitchen was well suited too.

I did worry that some of the older people with mobility issues would have difficulty since there are a lot of steps up to the house. Older people may need assistance, but overall, a very enjoyable place to stay. Thank you Jane!

Quaint house offers relaxing stay.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we really enjoyed our time at the rental house. Several of our close relatives were able to join us on and off during the nine days that we were in the house. The neighborhood is very quiet, access to the small beach is easy and close, and the restaurants and shopping in White Bear Lake and nearby Stillwater are top notch! We spent much of our time biking, walking, reading, and visiting. One of the best parts about our vacation was our lengthy morning conversations on the side raised deck! It was fun to stay in our pajamas most of the morning as we visited over coffee and pastries. If there were any drawbacks, I would suggest giving more definite instructions on finding the key to enter the place as we mistakenly punched in the code for the "box" on the wrong door many times -- to no avail, of course! We completely missed seeing the correct "box" when we searched the back side of the house. Also, we were quite disappointed there was no access to a washer and dryer. When staying at a place for that many days, it is almost necessary to wash clothes, or at least towels, so that the dirty ones don't become unsightly piles! Thankfully, our daughter lives about 20 minutes away so that I could wash a few loads at her house. Other than these minor drawbacks, our vacation in the house was pleasant!

Great house, great location! This house is very nice, and was very clean! Close to a lake, close to restaurants and Stillwater. The owner is very nice and checked in to make sure all was okay.

Nice old craftsman bungalow set in a small wooded community within a half block at the lake.

  • 5 of 5

Love the house, love the owner, very comfortable setting in a small heavily treed community about a half block from the lake. Enjoyed watching all wide variety of birds it's Vegitation/mature trees and the squirrels and rabbits. House was in good operational shape and the owner was very responsive.
