About Melanie Ebertz
My roots are in the St. Croix River Valley, the house I invite you to stay in was my Grandma Florence's! I am passionate about the river, the history & the arts & architecture of Stillwater. I love the cycling, walking and all the great things our river town offers. I am a guide of the Peruvian Andes so the hills keep me as closely connected to the mountains as the mid-west can get. I also design Peruvian textiles, so there is a lot of rich color & texture in Florence's house. Having guiding in my genes, I am always happy to point guests in the direction of their passions.
Melanie Ebertz purchased this House in 2000
Why Melanie Ebertz chose Stillwater
Depth of character, comfort and charm!

The valley offers many outdoor activities the house is conveniently situated and the biking & walking is superb!
What makes this House unique

Thank you Heidi and friends, come back soon, it was great to have you all!

Florence's house was fantastic!
We stayed at Florence's house for a girl's getaway weekend. The house and kitchen were fully stocked with plenty of linens, books, cookware, and all other essentials. The space was comfortable and easily accommodated 5 women. We enjoyed the yard, morning coffee on the porch, and watching the birds. Downtown Stillwater was only 5 minutes away. Melanie was very responsive throughout the entire booking process. We would definitely stay there again.
Thank you Melanie! We thoroughly enjoyed learning about Florence and her home. It's a fascinating story! Her character and charm came through, and we talked about her multiple times during the weekend!
It was a pleasure to have you all enjoy the house, yard and birds! I hope you will consider a return trip. All my very best, Melanie
Amazing house -great history

Scott and friends,
Thank you so much for staying and enjoying the house, I hope you will come back next year!
All my best,
This Old House
This home is historical. has been remodeled very nicely. All the accommodations of home, with the added breakfest (eggs and freshly baked bread) by our Host. Very nice yard with a sitting area for just relaxing and enjoying the property.
The impressive thing for us was, we traveled by Boat from Dubuque and arrived after dark, our Host was will to pick us up from Marina but there was Uber and Cab services in Stillwater. this was something out of the norm. thank you for for thinking of us.
I highly recomend this property.
It was an adventure for me just knowing of your adventure to get to Stillwater! It was a pleasure to be part of it, I hope you can return someday, your were great guests!
Homey and comfortable
Very well kept. Beautiful yard. Loved the history of the house.
Thanks so much Ruth, glad the weekend was a success for your gathering!
Stillwater is a River Town and there is much to do in this beautiful River Valley.
