Property description

Nestled on a hillside in beautiful Stillwater Minnesota, Scenic Overlook Cottage overlooks one of the most beautiful waterways in the Midwest; the St. Croix River. This cottage is attached to a French Normandy-style house and is a very private, ample 1200 square feet. A European immersion experience will enhance this perfect spot for a getaway. This special and memorable home has been highlighted in Better Homes and Gardens. It is a premium property at a preferred location.

It is located within a comfortable 25-minute walk (will soon be on the new Stillwater City path which will follow the river to town). At the bottom of your cottage driveway is Stillwater’s southern scenic overlook . Take your picnic hamper right out your door and enjoy the life this beautiful river has to offer.

Sweeping French doors into a bedroom, a full kitchen and bar, living and dining room area and a bathroom with shower all on one level makes the cottage easily accessible and livable for short stays or an extended stay. There are a lot of great restaurants, sightseeing and activities within easy reach. Bikers Welcome! The owners are friendly, easily reached and offer prompt service. We look forward to meeting you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Louise and Martin are both European and their home reflects it. Louise is from England while Martin is from Switzerland. As soon as they found this home set high on the hills overlooking the St. Croix River, Martin felt at home. It was reminiscent of his childhood home in Switzerland. Louise took great joy designing and decorating the home in a style similar to her Grandparents farmhouse in Cheshire, England. Better Homes and Gardens took note when they featured the home in their magazine.

Why the Owner Chose Stillwater, MN, USA:
The property is in a preferred location just 8/10 of a mile south of downtown Stillwater. It is an easy drive and just a 25 minute walk. By the end of 2016 it will be on the river walk into town. There has never been a bad review on this property. You will understand when you see the meticulous attention paid to every detail to make it a premier property and a delightful stay.
