Truly unique & luxurious 1 bedroom apartment

Why Amy Sotis chose Saint Croix Falls
This 1 bedroom apartment called "The Artist's Loft" is located on the 2nd story (and top floor) of the quiet Luminaries building. There is a private iron staircase and keypad for you to access the loft without the need to meet up to check in. The Luminaries building has a stone patio that you can use while staying in the Loft and you can access all the local attractions within walking/short driving distance. We are close to the ice cream shop, hospital, pharmacy, restaurants, and the Interstate Parks of MN in Taylor's Falls, and the WI side in St Croix Falls. The

Great little place.
Amy is great and was very accommodating. Cute little place and would definitely stay again.
Thanks so much for your awesome review & kind comments! We loved having you guys stay with us!
We enjoyed our stay at the Artist Loft! Super clean, eclectic, and in a great area.
Amy was super responsive to questions we had throughout our stay. Loved our little family get away here.
A very convenient place located to many activities for all. Very charming and wonderfully decorate
It was a shame that the cafe was shut down due to the selling of the property. I'll be watching this property for future stay's. With many hopes that the new owners will continue with this service. The property manager was very helpful and checked on us throughout the stay to ensure that we had everything we neeeded. .
An OK but not great stay at the Artist's Loft
While the host made every effort to provide plentiful towels for the pleasant shower, and a fine collection of kitchenware (we made avocado toast and coffee for breakfast each morning), the entire place is painted in dark colors and the lighting ( lovely chandeliers) is minimal... every room desperately needs more and better lighting for everyday tasks like cooking, reading, shaving, applying make-up etc. The chandeliers are lovely if you're sitting around listening to music but otherwise-- it's just too dark! We also found the bed and bedding to be uncomfortable. Our host Amy was responsive and check-in was easy. Thanks Amy!
Dear Bruce, I am so sorry that you felt you only had an ok stay. Thank you for your detailed feedback, though, on how we can improve our loft. We will work on some of those items right away.
Fabulous stay, when you pull up you might be wondeiring a bit but once inside is an amazing refuge
Location enables you to enjoy many local attractions and amenities. Would do it again. One of those most unique locations I have been. And I travel ALOT!
Cozy homebase for a weekend of skiing!
My family enjoyed having The Artists loft as a respite from the cold this weekend! The 4 of us to full advantage of the the different spaces in the loft as well as all the basics that we needed. We'd absolutely come back and as my kids said "this is the best place ever!". Amy was a fantastic host and was very responsive when we communicated via text or the VRBO site. Thank you!
That is so great to hear, Katie & family! Glad you made the most out of the extremely cold weekend in spite of the temps! Would love to have you back anytime!
Very close to Trollhaugen Skiing and Adventure Park in Dresser, WI. Also very close to Wild Mountain Skiing and Adventure Park in Taylor's Falls, MN. Additionally, we are right along the St Croix River and kayaks/canoes for rent are nearby as well as Festival Theater for live local theater. Bring your fat-tire bikes in the winter or any mountain bike to ride in the summer on the Woolly Mountain Bike Trail! Visit the local bike/x-country ski shop just a few doors away called Cyclova to rent bikes to use on the Gandy Dancer or Woolly trails.
