About David and Robin

We are locals in the community and have made this wonderful apartment unit available to people in search of a place to return home for family visits, a stay for local wedding, weekend relaxation or exploration getaway.

Perfectly located to adorable town of marine st.croix and surrounding state parks. Clean, fully stocked kitchen, special added touches (coffee/creamer, fresh fruit, canned goods and frozen pizza). Easy to locate and a breeze to check in/out. We will definitely stay here again and spread the word!

Comfy place in comfy little town

  • 4 of 5

Great little place in Marine. Perfectly located near the center of the small town and just a few minutes from Stillwater. The apartment was clean and tidy and very cozy. The owners even left a nice bottle of wine. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.

Lovely place to stay with great owners!!

  • 5 of 5

David and Robin went above and beyond to help me and my husband out during our stay. Especially since I "lost my way" and ended up almost stranded not being able to get ahold of my husband. Would definitely recommend them to friends and family and stay there again. I appreciate everything they did for us while we were there!!! They treated us like family. Great people!!
