About Julie Wall

Mark and Julie Wall are the owners of this home. We moved to Taylors Falls after 15 years of living in Amsterdam and have now just relocated to Dallas. We love to travel, meet new people and have fun adventures. During our travels we have enjoyed staying in the comfort of others homes and decided to offer ours to travelers while we are away. John and Kate, who live just down the street, are the amazing care takers and treat this home like it is their own.

Beautiful Location for before and after our Big Day!

  • 5 of 5

We used Julie's house recently for ourselves and half of our bridal party for both our rehearsal night and the night of our wedding. Our photographer actually utilized the space to take many of my pre-wedding photos, and they turned out beautifully! The house itself was gorgeous, and perfect for our group of 10 (we set up a blow up mattress in one of the rooms). The kitchen is large and gorgeous, although for our day all we needed was the fridge :). The outside porch is perfect for relaxing, and there is are some nice private outdoor areas in back that are great for a getaway. We would recommend!!

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful historic home. 4 bedrooms sleep 8. Two bathrooms with only 1 shower. The youngest in our group was in 50's so the high tub was a challenge. One of the sinks was loose and unstable. Still we will book again.

Couples Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time - the caretakers made it clear that we were there to relax and to let them know if we needed anything. The house was charming and roomy with great indoor and outdoor spaces. We would stay here again!

We stayed at Julie's home for a bachelorette party/girls weekend and had a great time. The home is absolutely beautiful which was a treat since it rained the entire weekend. We were able to still spend time outside on the large front porch playing games and enjoying each other's company. The care takers are very friendly and helpful. All in all a very pleasant stay. We will be back!
