"We really enjoyed our stay at this Stillwater home. The owners made us feel very welcome with a basket of treats and several fresh flower arrangements. This is, by far, the most well equipped kitchen we have ever rented. I brought things from home that we regularly use for cooking and didn't need most of them. All our correspondence with the owners was very prompt and helpful, and even though we never met, we felt like friends, not renters. The mornings!!! We, fortunately, had a great week of weather and could take advantage of the deck for our breakfasts and some evening appetizer times with family. The view of the river is subtle, the street quiet and peaceful, the house homey. the only change I would make is a more comfortable mattress/bed for a couple in the second bedroom but I am picky about that. The second bedroom allows for more than two people to stay in it which is an advantage for some families. As someone else said, the distance from the other bedroom made for great privacy. We would love to stay here again and Stillwater is a great town and in walking distance."

"Five of us spent two nights at River Escape. It was perfect! Beautiful location, comfortable quarters - warm and homey with plenty of room. Best part was the huge fireplace that we used both nights with wood that the owners graciously provided. Only 20 minutes to the slopes at Afton Alps. Would rent here again in a heartbeat!"

"This home is a unique property with a gorgeous view of a secluded bay on Lake Minnetonka. Older home, well maintained, ample space, private, conveniently located. We rented a boat, kayaks, and paddle boards. Great kitchen, huge living room with beautiful windows. Close to town of Excelsior, easy to get to from airport. Loved it."

"Stayed at this delightful cottage in June. Convenient and easy to get to from the Twin Cities. Once there, practically lived on the screen porch - feels like you are outside right by the river (without the nuisance of mosquitoes). As noted, it is an older cottage but it has been well maintained and is clean. Loved the decor. The pictures on their site capture it well. It's a great place for a retreat, but parks, towns and activities near by if you want to venture out. The owners are friendly and attentive - ready to help with whatever you need, but they are also not intrusive. I've recommended this place to others and hope to return."
