Property description

Marine School-house Garden Cottage apartment unit converted to VRBO. This bright 1 bedroom/1 bath second story apartment (with additional sleeping on a queen-sized hide-a-bed couch) has an up in the air, birds nest feel, as it overlooks the cobblestone court surrounded by woods and nature below. Walk to the historic General Store, Brookside Bar and Grill, Village Scoop ice cream (summer), St. Croix Chocolate Company, Stonehouse Museum (summer), local Lutheran Church, or bring your bike to ride some of the Saint Croix Valley's scenic roads and trails. In summer, bring your kids to a really great beach on Square Lake (just minutes away), to any of the river accesses to explore cliffs and river along the St. Croix. Or, bring your kayak or canoe to check out the beautiful river (access just below the General Store, William O'brien State Park, and many other places along the river). On weekends in summer, enjoy live music at the Brookside Bar and Grill (very short walk, see their website), visit Stillwater for antiques, riverfront parks, and additional restaurants (10 minute drive south). To the north check out the Gammelgarden Museum in Scandia (see website), Franconia Sculpture Park (see website), or try the zip line at Trollhaugen Aerial Adventure Park (northeast on Wisconsin side of river). During winter, cross country ski William O'brien Park's trails, venture to Trollhaugen Ski Area (17 miles) for tubing, snow boarding and skiing, or head ten minutes south to Stillwater for shopping and antiquing, great wine (Domacin Wine Bar), food (take your pick of many unique restaurants), or locally brewed beer (Liftbridge Brewery).
