About Joe

Born in Saint Paul MN and raised in Roseville, I've always had an attraction to historic homes to hang my hat. That is why I purchased Cottage House... for me and others to enjoy.

I'm currently a Chicago Real Estate Broker living in the Lincoln Park neighborhood in an equally amazing 1873 brick Coach House.

Joe purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Joe chose Stillwater

Because it transports you back to a small town feel and relieves the stress of big city life.

What makes this cottage unique

The kitchen is the best and you'll instantly feel like your back at Nanny & Grandpa's cottage!

Super cozy and charming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My old college roommates and I get together a few times a year all over Minnesota, and we decided it was time to stay in Stillwater for the weekend.

This place was adorable. From the moment we walked in we loved the ambiance the the coziness of the place. As an antique lover I was a huge fan of all the little touches present in the house. It was about a 12 minute walk to Main Street, which was a great way for us to get in some exercise and take in the neighborhoods surrounding us.

Joe made some great suggestions for food as well, which was appreciated. I would absolutely come back!

Great cottage in a great town

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage for the Super Bowl weekend. It was an easy commute into the city - 25-30 minutes. The cottage itself is very nice. The house was nicely decorated, very clean and comfortable. The town of Stillwater is great. The Ice Castles were a lot of fun and we had a good time in town at the restaurants and bars. We'd like to visit in the Summer or Fall sometime. The owner was very easy to work with and all of the logistics went very smoothly. If you are looking for a place in this area, we'd highly recommend this property.

Cozy for a Girls Weekend!

  • 4 of 5

Myself and 4 other girlfriends spent the weekend in Stillwater and had a wonderful time. The Cottage House was extremely cozy and a perfect place to relax after a day out. The weather was a bit chilly so we were not able to take advantage of the porches, but next time!
