About Stacey Johnson

I'm a house junkie still in rehabilitation........honestly just love old houses, new houses, house ideas, house design and construction. Past 10 years I have been involved in every facet of real estate and renovation, and love more than anything the transformation of homes and spaces. In every house there's a beautiful home wanting to emerge! This in combination with hospitality is a perfect fit for me......the creation of an experience! I hope you 'feel'- cozy, warm, welcome, and at peace when you stay at one of my vacation rentals.

Stacey Johnson purchased this condo in 2012

What makes this condo unique

The location of this unit is so ideal. It allows one to ditch the car and just walk to the best of St. Paul - Grand Ave and it's fun shops, restaurants, and bars. Or head down Summit Ave and gawk at hundreds of some of the most amazing architectural homes in the US. Also right in the neighborhood is the Cathedral of St. Paul; something simply astonishing to see. Just a bit further but still walkable is the Capitol, another amazing architectural feat. For a more livelier walk you can head downtown and take in more restaurants, theatres, and possibly a concert at the Excel Center. It truly is the epicenter of fun!

Another wonderful stay at the house on the hill!

  • 5 of 5

This was my third time at what I call my "house on the hill". It is all it says it is....comfort, space and oh, so charming. This time I did some entertaining. The kitchen is great to prepare a meal and plenty of room at the dining table as well. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pans and serving pieces. Did go to some new restaurants too. Really enjoyed Sunrise Cafe, a small cafe featuring Italian cusine, and delicious porketta sandwiches that you can eat there or take home. Went to Salut American which had very good food and lovely area to eat outside on a lovely summer day. My review wouldn't be complete if I didn't mention the owner, Stacey. She is a perfect hostess and always helpful. I will be back!

Comfy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Great bed and front porch with lots of space inside. My sister and I walked the neighborhood admiring all the lovely Victorian homes. Convenient to restaurants and shoppers too. Just wish we had had more time to explore and relax on the front porch. Thanks Stacey for being a great hostess!

Great place in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Grand Hill, and we were comfortable and felt welcome. Stacey's decor is lovely, and the space is great for a couple and a small dog. The location is convenient to shopping and getting back and forth from each of the Twin Cities. We especially enjoyed walking around the neighborhood looking at the Summit Avenue mansions. We will definitely return to Grand Hill when we visit family and friends in the Twin Cities area!

Even better than what the pictures show!

  • 5 of 5

For a week in June, we were in town to celebrate a family milestone. Throughout the reservation process, the owner (Stacey) was very responsive to our questions, provided local pointers, and offered suggestions. We rented the lower unit of this house. For check-in, Stacey met us at the house for a quick tour. Our immediate impression was “this rental is even nicer in person than it appeared in the photos!” Charming, clean, efficient, comfortable and located in a neighborhood we really enjoyed walking around each day. The architectural interest of the surrounding historic homes is amazing. We really enjoyed ending each day with a relaxing sit on the front porch. Although the porch area is also available to the upstairs unit, we never saw anyone else around. Without hesitation, this may be our go-to place for future visits to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.

The Summit Hill area is one of the nation's premier collections/concentration of turn of the century mansions and architecture. Less than one block away on Summit Ave is F. Scott Fitzgerald's brownstone he lived in during several of his writing years. James J. Hill mansion is a must see and is walking distance from VRBO unit. Over 14,000 sqft. of splendid finishes and design. Nina's coffee house is a nice walk for a cup of local coffee and people watching; it is in another magnificent building that won't disappoint.
