River Falls cabin description
St Croix River Cabin
Welcome to our secluded cabin on the scenic St. Croix River just 30 minutes from St. Paul, MN. Located on a quiet, private road, our cabin is perched on a bluff nestled within towering white pines while providing amazing views of the river. Watch eagles skate the treetops and settle perched just off the deck!
There are 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Bay windows in both bedrooms overlooking the river plus the master offers a large walk in closet with built in drawers and cabinets. There is also a 3 season porch surrounded by windows with a full size futon for an additional sleeping area. The huge deck exceeds the length of the home making it a great spot to enjoy the colorful sunsets and watch the moon glistening off the water. The main living area is surrounded by knotty pine walls and a beamed ceiling. A wall of windows and a cozy real, wood burning fireplace awaits you.
We also have wireless internet to connect you to the outside world. We are also minutes from many golf courses, Afton (MN) State Park and Afton Alps Ski Area.
Come enjoy the quiet.
Please note, there is no longer beach access

I found this listing late one evening and by afternoon the next day had scheduled two visits over the summer. We rent directly from owners frequently and these folks are absolutely the tops - generous, thoughtful, & responsive. I love rivers and just knew it would fit my family's need for a quick vacation located within an hour of our home. But don't get me wrong. You can arrive from anywhere in this world and find this place absolutely wonderful. It has everything you really need and then some and then some more. The cabin is private with the most beautiful view of the Saint Croix River you can imagine. It was hot, hot, hot during our visit but we'd simply descend to the river to swim and cool off. It was sublime, blissful. The water level was still high so the beach was a bit limited but we wanted to be in the water anyways. With the heat index in the three figures we were grateful for the AC, too! It was an easy drive to Hudson for nearly anything we needed, although I refused to leave more than once! From the deck we could watch eagles while drinking our morning coffee, delight in the fireflies at night and generally hang out all times in between! We even had a private July 4th fireworks display provided by people on the opposite bank of the river. Did I mention I love this place? We return again for a few days in August. I can't wait. We'll get to try out that shoreline fire ring and make smores. And then, well I'm already scheeming to return in 2013!

Best Family Vacation Ever!
Best Family Vacation Ever!
The cabin had all the comforts of home, PLUS an incredible view of the beautiful St Croix River! From the fully equipped kitchen down to the kindling wood for the nightly fire, we wanted for nothing. I recommend stopping for groceries as you pass thru town. Once you arrive at the cabin, you won’t want to leave. We have found our home away from home and will definitely be back next year! Thank you Dillon family for sharing your beautiful home with our family.

Very peaceful vacation for our family. We loved the lift to the beach and spending time along the shore. We used the working fireplace nightly and that made the cabin ambiance quite cozy. The sleeping accomodations were very comfortable. The cabin owners were quite ready to help made our stay enjoyable. We will be back!
