About Barbra and Kirk Ackerman
We are married with grown children so we call that 'empty nested'. We love the St Croix River, Stillwater and general area. We enjoy boating and usually stay on our boat most of the warm weather season so our house is vacant and available at least 6 months out of the year. We decided to rent out vs. sell until we decide what we would like to do next. It is a big house for just the two of us so we decided to try VRBO since it is a nationally known site and introduces our home to more parties.
Barbra and Kirk Ackerman purchased this House in 1999

We had our sons from Chicago, Milwaukee and Wausau with gf's meet us (from South Dakota) for a wonderful Christmas in Stillwater at Barbara and Kirk's home. It came complete with a decorated Christmas tree! The house is beautifully decorated and amazingly well supplied. They were terrific to work with and we had no issues. We would stay at their home again.
So glad our home worked for your family holiday celebration and we were happy to decorate for your stay. We would like to thank your family for leaving the home in great condition and welcome you back anytime. Thank you for being so easy to work with and Happy New Year to you all!

We loved our stay here! Home is spacious and well appointed. Plenty of room for a large family to enjoy, including room for privacy. Kitchen is well equipped! Within walking distance to downtown Stillwater. 2 Thumbs up!
We were a group of seven women who have been friends since high school - many moons ago. This home in Stillwater was the perfect place for our weekend reunion, one bedroom and bathroom on the first level and four bedrooms and two bathrooms on the second floor. The house is very spacious and nicely decorated, completely updated inside. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked, and the sectional for TV watching is great! One of the owners met us at the home upon our arrival to show us around and genuinely hoped for us to have a good time. One caveat - We didn't feel visiting the downtown area was walkable but it was only a short drive away.
Very clean, spacious and beautiful!
The house was very clean, organized and had all the amenities you would need when you are on vacation! Located in a great location made it ideal to take great walks, ride a bike or a short drive to many great restaurants and shops. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone and would also return back for any future opportunity.
You had such a nice friendly group and you all were so easy to work with. I hope you made some fun memories and very glad our home work well for your group size. Thank you for the nice review and we appreciate how well you cared for our home. You all left the home in perfect condition. We would welcome you back anytime.

GOOD VENUE FOR OUR REUNION
OVERALL VERY NICE HOME . MY GROUP LOVED STILLWATER, HIKING TRAILS, AND A BOAT RIDE ON THE ST. CROIX. DANGEROUS STEP FROM KITCHEN TO DINING AREA MADE FOR MANY NEAR-MISSES. (WE PUT A CHAIR IN THE MIDDLE OF IT TO REMIND OURSELVES.). SOME OF THE KITCHEN CABINENTS WERE VERY DISORGANIZED AND COULD USE SOME STRAIGHENING. BUT I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS HOME; JUST WATCH THAT STEP!!
So glad your group had a nice time in Stillwater and our home worked out for the most part. We did allow you to view the home prior to rental so you could see the condition and space. Sorry if the step ended up being and issue for you. This has only been bought up by a few in our 4 years. This single step from one room to the next always seemed normal to us and did pass our inspection.
As for the kitchen cupboards, I can only defend our guests. Sometimes they are unfamiliar so they do at times return items in wrong areas. Some guests move around more visible things so our cleaners have to focus on returning those items into their place while cleaning for the next group. I personally go in putting kitchen items back in place every few rentals since our crew would not have enough time.
Thanks for saying we have a very nice home!

We are so glad our home game your family enough space and it worked for your family gathering. You took great care of the home and I hope you got to do a few walking into town.
You are welcome back anytime an thanks for everything.
