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.

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!

Beautiful and secluded!

  • 5 of 5

Steve was an absolutely wonderful host. We had our wedding at his property and he went above and beyond to accommodate our big day. The yard is gigantic and the view of the lake is wonderful. The house is spacious and decorated with style. We had everything we needed and more, i would rent again in a heartbeat!!!

Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property! Very well stocked with things you need as well as very comfortable beds. Steve is quick to respond to emails. He made the process very easy and made us feel welcome! Quiet neighbors and quiet lake. The kitchen has more dishes, pots/plans, appliances, and cleaning products then my own house. What a pleasant surprise! The deck, private nature of the property, fire pit, and hot tub were fantastic gathering places for all of us to catch up. We have stayed at a number of properties over the past 8 years and this was one our favorites for our annual cousin get together.

Amazing Stay at a super fun house!

  • 5 of 5

This place was PERFECT! Through a birthday party and it was amazing! The deck is giant! The grill worked great! The fire pit was super nice. The only thing that was kind of a bummer was that the lake that it is on is not swimable but we canoed and there is a big hot tub so it was still just fine! Steve, the owner was also a wonderful host! We will most likely be booking again!
