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 Metro

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!

Beautiful Cottage with Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very close to the main streets of Stillwater; about a 15 minute walk from shops, pubs and restaurants. The cottage had a rustic feel to it with antique like furnishings which made it interesting, unique, and cozy. The back porch was a nice location to relax and enjoy your coffee in the morning. The cottage was very clean and had all the amenities needed to cook, wash clothes, or just relax with a beverage. Very nice place to stay while visiting Stillwater.

Very cute and great location.

  • 5 of 5

This cute little cottage was perfect for our Girls weekend. It was so clean and the beds were very comfy! Location is perfect for walking into old downtown or a quick ride to Cub or Target. Best part of the location is you are a 1/2 block from Nelson's Ice Cream. Place of the largest kid size cone EVER! We are looking at booking again next year we liked it so much.

Delightful cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay. The house was charming, very well kept and equipped. We spent lots of time on the screened in porch, and it was good to have a kitchen with all basic equipment needed. Lots of care has been lavished on this lovely house.

Perfect Little Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great stay at the Cottage House! It was just what we were looking for to complete our Stillwater getaway. We loved the recommendations/insider tips from Joe and did just about all of them. It was in the mid-80's all weekend, so after being on main street all day, it was great to come home to the air conditioning. If we ever come back to the area, we will plan on staying here again for sure!

Great location and very charming!

  • 5 of 5

Stillwater was a great place for friends from Iowa and Wisconsin to meet. The cottage is very charming and close to the downtown area. We enjoyed the screened in porch for coffee in the morning and conversation in the evening. The kitchen was adequately furnished for us to make our own breakfast each morning. A very well maintained property.
