About the owner: Ann, Doug, & Family - We enjoy boating and swimming on the Mississippi and St. Croix Rivers, bicycling around Hastings, and downhill or cross-country skiing at Welch Village and throughout the area. Doug was also involved in planning/design for the new Hastings Bridge since 2008, with the project completed by 2014!
Why the Owner Chose Hastings: We have a long family history of boating and canoeing on the area's lakes and rivers. We keep our boat at this house and enjoy the access Hastings provides to both the metro area and to the wilds and small towns in the river valleys. Please feel free to ask us about things to do.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The St. Croix and Mississippi Rivers provide the best recreation areas and scenery found in the Twin Cities Metro region. Hastings is an ideal location from which to enjoy the whole area!
