About the property

4 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms on a Private Lake

This lake home on 1.5 acres in the woods feels like a private retreat. Soak in the hot tub, grill on the deck, or enjoy the fire-pit all while taking in lake views and enjoying the surrounding nature. You might even spot one of the resident bald eagles. Often described as a country home in the heart of the metro, the location cannot be better. The house has 4 bedrooms and there is a queen size air mattress if needed. Just off 494 - enjoy easy access to downtown St. Paul (10 min) and Minneapolis (20 min). This house will feel like a home away from home. Check in time is 3 PM and check out time is 11am.

About Steve Dick

I own a landscape company in Woodbury that I started with my brother as a kid. I love renting my house out to let other people enjoy it as much as I do.

Steve Dick purchased this house in 2011

Why Steve Dick chose Inver Grove Heights

This home is my dream home. I am a single guy and I someday hope to raise my family here. In the meantime, it's awfully big for me so I rent it out on VRBO.

What makes this house unique

This house was built by the previous owners and they lived here for 50 years. I spent 3 years renovating the house, inside and out to make it more modern to meet my specifications. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

The owner was easy to reach and very helpful with accommodating an eleventh hour reservation. Easy self check-in and check-out. Location is by the highway but you don't really notice as the house is set further down on a slope. Nice, comfortable home with sheets and towels provided. Lovely view of Schmidt Lake.

It was the perfect home for a gathering! Plenty of room inside and out for a larger group with beautiful views of the lake. Hosted a bridal shower/party and this home was perfect! Everyone that attended loved the location, views and amenities provided. Home is nicely decorated, fully furnished and very clean. Steve was great throughout the entire process. Thanks Steve!

The living area and kitchen were spacious and great for our family! The location was awesome!

  • 4 of 5

We had plenty of room and it was very comfortable. The hot tub was very nice and we enjoyed it on a cold morning! Some of the beds were too soft for my liking, but the rooms were nice. The large lot offered plenty of privacy and it was nice being on the lake.

Stunning setting and view

  • 5 of 5

The setting was amazing. The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Communication was easy. Wished we could have stayed longer and taking advantage of the fire pit and hot tub!

Cozy and spacious

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect location for our bachelorette party! We especially enjoyed the spacious, well-stocked kitchen for cooking and serving, as well as the open living room and sleeping accommodations. The hot tub was a definite perk! A beautiful "quiet" getaway in the middle of the city!
