Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My husband and I own and operate a contracting & consulting business. We have three children, which keep us busy. Both my husband and I grew up in the area and reside only a few minutes away from The Cottage.

Why the Owner Chose Audubon, MN, USA:
This property is close to our home, and we saw potential with the house. We've always been told we have the 'gift of hospitality', so we decided to combine our carpentry skills with our 'gift.' We renovated the entire house and gave it a home-y feel. We hope people enjoy staying at The Cottage as much as we enjoyed renovating it and we will strive to make your vacation experience a memorable one!
