About Heather

We've been married for 20 years and have 2 grown children. We came to the river for a boating trip with some friends 15 years ago. We used to be lake boaters, but from that day forward we were all about the river and haven't looked back. We moved to Stillwater specifically for the boating, but have fallen in love with the restaurants and the people.

We live on our boat most of the summer and for that reason are able to make our home available most of the boating season.

Heather purchased this house in 2010

Why Heather chose Metro

We decided on this home after months of searching. We knew as soon as we saw it this would be the one. It was built in 1890, but underwent some remodeling and we continue to make improvements. We love this house and hope you enjoy it too.

What makes this house unique

This home is located close to downtown shopping and restaurants. It offers open views and is a great place to catch a baseball game from the front porch in the summer.

If you have any specific items you would like to request for your stay (grocery, liquor, etc.) please let us know and we will try to accommodate.

Great gathering place for friends

  • 5 of 5

We are a close group of college friends that get together a couple of times a year. The home and Stillwater did not disappoint. The home is immaculate and nestled in a lovely neighborhood within walking distance of downtown (20 minutes). Heather was easy to work with and responsive to all inquiries.

Wonderful home to gather with family

  • 5 of 5

Cousins from three states converged in Stillwater for family get together. The front porch was a place for all to sit and talk and watch people playing in the park across the street. The backyard patio was also a gathering spot to watch logs burning in a fire bowl. The kitchen was well equipped (for those times we didn't eat at a local establishments). The beds were wonderful (i.e. supplied good support for old bones and muscles).

Perfect getaway place

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect space for our group! The home is beautifully updated with plenty of space for lounging, making a meal or getting ready for an event. It was a manageable walk to downtown, but yet not right in the downtown so you can enjoy the quiet backyard space.

Comfortable Home Base for Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful home had everything we needed to be comfortable while we were in Stillwater for our daughter's wedding. The layout worked well for the 3 generations of family staying here. A king and queen bedroom along with a full bath upstairs, plus a full bedroom and another full bath downstairs that also included a washer and dryer if needed.

The kitchen was beautifully updated and provided anything you might need to make a meal. Outside there is room to park 4 cars. The front porch has 4 comfy chairs that we really enjoyed after coming back after the rehearsal dinner.

I highly recommend this home!
