About the property

Experience St Paul in Quiet, Private, Elegance

Experience St Paul in Quiet, Private Elegance

The Apartment is a Beautiful 2 bedroom self contained unit on 2 floors, the steps are a bit steeper than normal, which we lovingly like to refer to as “cottage style steps.”

Very importantly you have an assigned and very convenient private parking spot-for one car-with your private entry just steps away.

When you stay with us you can just step out of the door to a Magical Neighborhood filled with beautiful Victorian Mansions. The home is just off Summit Avenue with the longest stretch of Victorian Mansions in America. If you enjoy beautiful architecture this is an incredible area.

Downtown St Paul is just a few blocks away with its fantastic & historic restaurants, bars and amenities, like the Science, Xcel and Rivercenter Convention Centers, as well as a number of fabulous Theaters.

St Paul's newest and trendiest restaurant/bar the Commodore is just 1 block away and many or our other favorites are within just a couple blocks, like WA Frost, Moscow on the Hill, Fitzgerald’s and the Red Cow.

The apartment is very convenient with keyless entry & Apple TV's (so bring your access codes to Netflix, Hulu, etc.) & there is also a washer/dryer in unit. The kitchen is beautifully equipped and gracious with space and convenience.

Lovely home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay close to downtown St. Paul for a large meeting. We found this place and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was lovely and we would stay again for sure. Hopefully next time we can have more time to enjoy more of the community activities !

Lovely home on Summit Avenue!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautifully decorated and very comfortable and clean. We appreciated the attention to detail as it had everything we could possibly need. Pam and Cory were very helpful with our late arrival. They had good suggestions for nearby places to eat and sights to see. A few places we enjoyed visiting were the Minnesota State Capitol Building, James J. Hill Museum and Minnesota Museum, which are in walking distance. We also enjoyed the walk along Summit Avenue with all its mansions.

Very comfortable, private, quiet stay in a premiere neighborhood. Cory and Pam provided many extra amenities we've not received in other places. We lacked for nothing. Apartment was clean, decorated beautifully and the beds were extremely comfortable. Location is in a historic neighborhood just steps from many fine restaurants and shopping. We loved our stay!
