Guestbook comments from the owner

The home was clean, spacious, well-appointed and in a lovely area! We found the beds to be comfortable, and everything in excellent condition. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of plates and utensils. The appliances all worked well. Thermostats were easy to use in order to warm the home up! (we were there during a definite "cold snap"!) The snow that fell during our stay was quickly shoveled from the walks, and that was greatly appreciated! The spacious enclosed entry-porch made removing our shoes (to comply with the no-shoes policy of the home) much easier to deal with!

The walking/running path around the lake is well-maintained, and although the lake was frozen during our stay, we enjoyed going for a walk, and can imagine how nice this location would be in the summer as well. An elegant home-away-from-home!

Beautiful home in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Lake Phalen Place is a beautiful home. We stayed there with two couples and two singles. The house is big enough that we were all comfortable. The home was clean and welcoming. If I find myself at Lake Phalen Place again, I will take the time to take a walk around the lake. We had a very relaxing couple of days!

Family Thanksgiving in St. Paul

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely place for 11 members of our family to stay for the Thanksgiving weekend: myself, my adult two daughters and son and their partners, the brother of my daughter in law and my three grandchildren. Comfy, lovely place. We cooked, ate, played games, re-connected with each other around the fire, read, walked around the lake, went for runs, built a snowman and used the place as a home-base from which to explore various fun spots around the Cities. It was remote and quiet in it's beautiful setting, but close enough to our local relatives that we could easily come and go, including gathering at their home in Falcon Heights for a memorable Thanksgiving meal. Thanks, Bill!

It was perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We are 4 couples scattered around the country who get together once a year. This year was our turn here in Minnesota. Lake Phalen Place was perfect for us. We normally spend our time talking, cooking together, eating, and more talking, with an occasional outing. In this location we could walk around the lake and talk or sit in the comfortable living room (or kitchen) while someone made dinner. The place was immaculate, lovely to look at, well supplied and everything worked! The bedrooms were comfortable, most with lovely views. We had a great time! Thank you!

Warmth & Beauty in a Picturesque Setting

  • 5 of 5

Bill - I wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know just how much my family and I truly enjoyed spending four glorious nights at Lake Phalen Place for my daughter's wedding. The rental property was very beautiful and exceeded all of our expectations. All of the rooms and bedrooms were very spacious, nicely decorated and well maintained. We all enjoyed taking our daily walks around the lake and basking in the beauty of the park setting. Lastly, thank-you very much for your quick attention to getting the gas fireplace fixed so quickly for us. It added such a nice warmth to the living room. If the opportunity ever presents itself to us again in the future for another vacation rental property in the Minneapolis area, we will definitely be contacting you again. Thanks a lot!

Perfect for 8 Golfers

  • 5 of 5

We had a tremendous time in the Twin Cities and your home exceeded our expectations completely.

From the cleanliness of the house to the great layout, our time was exceptional. We enjoyed the large kitchen and spent a few nights socializing there as well as the last night when we grilled outside in the beautiful fall evening. Kudos to you and your staff for having the house ready to go and spotless for our arrival!

I'n happy to recommend that anyone who is planning on a large group stay in MSP look you up - the house served as a wonderful base of operations for a successful guys' Ryder Cup weekend!
