Stillwater is known for its historic St. Croix River, Lift Bridge, architecture, unique shopping, fine dining to casual food, entertainment and leisure. In the 1800s, the downtown was anchored by the Lumber Mill, Lumber Exchange and Train depot. It was named the Birthplace of Minnesota in 1843. Located on Main Street in the historic 1882 Excelsior Block Building.
Biking or walking along the river bank, offers great views and you can also create a challenging workout by going up and down the many stairs our town provides. Library is within working distance, as well as, winery, grocery store, bookstore, dining, shopping and antiquing. Make a date for the trolley strolling through the residential area, enjoying all the colors of historic homes while sharing history of the town. http://www.ci.stillwater.mn.us/

Year Purchased: 1987
About the owner: My passion is design, the minute I laid eyes on this building I knew I had to have it. So much character, I even took my daughter and showed it to her, telling her I was going to buy it and what did she think?. I then thought I would have a tea shop there, as my Mother and Father are Irish. It seemed like it could be a family affair. Shortly after I purchased the building Charles Nelson who was the State Historic Architect suggested to me that I get on the Stillwater Heritage Commission, as they needed my help. Charles and I had worked on other projects in the past together. WA Frost was one and other Twin City projects. I dove into the second floor of Excelsior building opening up all the rooms that had been separated by doors and exposing brick where it would make a difference. Then the worst happened, my Mother died and my whole world feel apart. My passion was gone and the building restoration stopped. I was lost without my Mom's encouragement. So the building was rented out, left to it's own. In the last two years, I have restored woodwork and had all but one room floors restored, new windows, painting and the fun part decorating. I had a new roof put on with a new outside rooftop deck, a new deck outside master suite, complete new kitchen, all materials out of recycled historic items. New Furnace/Central Air. Tuckpointing of Exterior. It takes you back to the late 1800's with flair of the 2000's. I am so proud of the restoration at Excelsior Escape. It's fun, open and a great piece of living history. It is centrally locating on Main Street and it's a contributing part of Historic Stillwater.
