Not so great for sleeping

  • 3 of 5

Beds were not comfortable at all. Strong musty smell in bedroom. We cut our stay one day shorter and stayed somewhere else. But it was cute

Nice little apartment with everything we needed. Owners very accommodating. Affordable.

  • 4 of 5

Old school house with old building smell. Worse in the hall, maybe the carpet. Had everything we needed otherwise. Good off street parking . Loved the Adirondack chairs. Wished we had time to use the grilling area but admired it. Location is great. Enjoyed shopping and biking in Stillwater and North to Osceola for kayaking. Owners are so right about Square Lake. Were able to call ourselves triatheletes after swimming these beautiful clear waters. The village of Marine on St. Croix is a little gem and worth time spent there also. Had a great time at the school.

Much better than a hotel!!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our home away from home! Nice quiet little town but Stillwater's just 15 minutes away. We really enjoyed the Brookside Grill which is right in town. The Marine on St. Croix Retreat was a great place to stay at a reasonable price.
