Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Bill,

We had an awesome time at your Lake Elmo house. It was spacious, comfortable, and was the perfect location for shopping, dining and snow tubing! What a treat for a Nebraska boy--and the grownups too! We loved the place and the ease of making the arrangements. We will definitely use again and recommend the house

We had a nice stay overall

  • 3 of 5

Our family had a nice visit and this Lake Elmo home was comfortable for us. We enjoyed spending time together in the kitchen area and lower living area as well as the back deck. Overall the home was clean but many kitchen items required washing upon our arrival. We also ran out of plates and tea/coffee cups because there were only 8; we didn't use the dishwasher much for this reason because it never filled enough to run. The wireless internet connection wasn't very strong, it worked for checking email but when downloading a movie it would stop to buffer.

One of the main reasons we booked this home was the short walk to the lake so we could swim and play. We were disappointed to find the lakes were not conducive to swimming. We ended up driving 15 minutes and paying $14 to go to the reserve where there was a nice swimming area but only went once for that reason.

The listing shows it sleeps 8 but if you look more closely it says there are beds for 6. The property manager took care of our needs in a timely manner. He had a new coffee maker and electric kettle delivered during our stay when I let him know they weren't working. We did have a nice stay in this home but I'm not sure we would return.

Owner's Response: I'm happy the renter had a good experience at Lake Elmo Place. The internet is a 110 MB Comcast Connection with no previous reported problems. The dishwasher is operating with no problems and there are place settings for 10 people including 12 coffee cups. There is nothing on my web site indicating that there is a public Lake Elmo swimming beach. Few lakes in Minnesota have public swimming beaches. The Lake Elmo Park Reserve Swimming Beach has life guards and is an excellent place to swim only 5 miles away. My listing CLEARLY indicates that there is room in 3 bedrooms for six and there is a sleeper sofa for additional 2 people.

Nice Place to Stay

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice house, nothing fancy but had a great kitchen and living room space for our group to gather. Also a nice deck w/ grill that was a great place for coffee in the morning and a cook-out. Within 15 minutes of Stillwater so very convenient to shops & restaurants.

Great location, quiet neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

My favorite thing about this property was the spacious kitchen! The island in the kitchen was great for preparing meals, and it was a wonderful space to gather with family. We spent most of our time in this area with the who;e family. When we weren't in the kitchen, we were in the living room. We loved the split-level kitchen/living room. It was so nice when our family wanted to watch a game on television and still be part of what was happening in the kitchen area.

The beds were very comfortable, and we all slept quite well. The bedrooms had plenty of closet and drawer space for our needs. The neighborhood was peaceful and we slept like babies.

We also liked the location of the property. We were close to Minneapolis, St Paul, and Stillwater (our favorite spot). There is a lake right down the street that we went ice fishing on. The manager of the property took care of all our needs in a timely manner, and he was always courteous. It was a lovely place and we would return.

Very Nice Property

  • 5 of 5

The Lake Elmo house is a lovely house in a quiet neighborhood. Only about 1 1/2 miles from the 694 freeway, and a short drive to Stillwater. The HUGE kitchen was well equipped with lots of dish towels and soap. The bathrooms were spotless, and there were lots of extra bath towels in a hall closet. The beds were very comfortable, with lots of pillows. There is also a very nice, large deck overlooking the back yard. We enjoyed our time very much and would definitely stay again.
