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.

Fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girlfriend trip and couldn't be more pleased with the home. Stillwater is charming, and this home is close to everything, but far enough removed that you had your privacy and quiet. The home is comfortable, clean and homey.

Would recommend this place in a heartbeat!

We had a wonderful time in Stillwater and really enjoyed our 3 night stay in this cozy historical home. We loved the porch and porch swing! This was so much better than staying in a hotel!

Convenient, clean and cozy home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our Girl's Getaway. The right amount of space, well-decorated and well-equipped. It was convenient to downtown Stillwater and great restaurants and shops. Had our stay been longer, we would have enjoyed using the sitting areas in the back yard. We all agreed that this was a perfect spot and that we would be back.
