Stillwater house description

Enjoy gorgeous vistas of the St. Croix River on spacious decks outside an attractive, unique home featuring a lofted bedroom, open beams, and expansive river views from all living, cooking, dining and sleeping areas.

Master bedroom loft, with private bathroom and shower, features skylights for those who love sleeping under the moon and stars and clear-story windows looking out to the river. The living area has wood floors, a couch with pull-out bed, and a library to curl up with a good book. The kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and a solid bamboo floor. The antique-style main floor bath includes a claw-foot tub with shower extension and pull-chain toilet. It is adjacent to a large second bedroom with a separate outside entrance and bunk-style futon that sleeps two on the bottom and one on the upper bunk.

This is a beautiful, restful place to relax, read, hike, bike and connect to the outdoors. Grill steaks while sipping wine and enjoying a wide variety of birds that visit feeders near the decks; watch blue herons, eagles and boats cruise the river. Walk downtown and enjoy Stillwater’s historic main street with fabulous restaurants, boutiques, antiques stores, charming old pubs, beautiful parks and the historic lift bridge.

Because this house sits high on the river bluff, the gravel driveway is steep and can be challenging for motorcycles (or anyone who doesn’t like steep slopes). But the vista is worth the climb!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: I am a construction project manager and have lived in Stillwater for more than 30 years. Stillwater accommodates all my favorite hobbies including fly fishing, kayaking, motorcycling, camping, gardening and building.

                  Why the Owner Chose Stillwater:
                  Since I'm spending free time with my fiancé Cindy, I decided to open my own home to vacation rental as I don't want to part with it. The location is great and I've put my own personality and love-of-the-outdoors style into my home. I think you'll enjoy it.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  I can spend hours with binoculars and a good brew watching raptors from my deck. Since I was a kid, I wanted to live up high -- like on a mountain. While the river bluff isn't a mountain, it's as beautiful.
