If you're into sports, we've got the new Vikings Stadium being built, Target Field, and the Saint Paul Saint's newly completed outdoor stadium. And shopping? Try Grand Avenue in Saint Paul (6 minutes from the house), or check out the Mall of America (only 15 minutes away). Restaurants are toooooooo numerous to mention—we love to eat, and we've got the whole gamut of fine eateries in the Twin Cities! Check the Guest Manuel for a list and our personal reviews, some with photos.
Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We are life partners (26 years) who decided to buy the house across the street when it came available. Over the course of two years, we gutted and rebuilt it from top to bottom. It comes fully furnished with practical and artistic pieces we created ourselves. Background: We both grew up trailing our military dads (Army & Air Force) around the world until we grew up and started our adult lives. Still, Shelly calls Michigan her family home and Eileen calls Vermont her home of family origin.
Why the Owner Chose West Side, Saint Paul, MN, USA:
The interior and exterior of the property is in pristine condition, the neighborhood is richly diverse—white, black, Native, Mexican, Hmong, mixed race, gays, rich, poor, middle-class, democrats and republicans—you name it, we've got it. The location (by car) is 5 minutes from downtown St Paul/10 minutes from Minneapolis (to answer the number one question posed by folks: yes, we are 5 minutes from the Xcel Energy Center). A fully-functioning photo studio is located on the backside of the property—need a "Linkedin" photo, or, an update to the ten-year-old family photo? It's free with your 4-night stay! Check out Shelly's photos: search on "Shelly Campbell Studios."
The Unique Benefits at this House:
*Parking is right next to the side entrance *the neighborhood is great for walking *ten minute walk to the Mississippi *grocery store is 2 minutes by car *great eating just down the street *Shelly is right across the street if you need anything or have questions —You'll walk in and find everything you need for your stay. This house totally beats staying in a hotel—and, it's a lot cheaper!
