About Heidi & Kevin Binkley
We purchased our home in 2008, and in 2009 we completely tore it apart and doubled the size of it. The house was built in 1919. But it is all new from the heated floors in the bungalow to the rafters. We love to tell the story. We also cleared a woods on the property that prevented us from using the river front. So now the yard slopes down to the water. Relaxing place to go sit and watch the rapids and wild animals. We also built a Cedar Shed with gas fire pit out by the river for all to enjoy. The shed has a work desk along with a day bed for that afternoon snooze. A quiet place to go after a long day. We hope all our guests enjoy it as much as we do.

Why Heidi & Kevin Binkley chose Rochester
This property sets in the middle of town but we are surrounded with woods and water and parks. We are five minutes from everything but feel like we are away from everything the way the house sits.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Besides its amazing location to shopping and restaurants, we are located across the street from a city park that is part of the miles of paved bike trails that run across southern Minnesota. It is also the place for cross-country skiing in the winter. The river is a non motorized river, so you can canoe, kayak, and tube. All of which can be rented at a local city park.

Lovely River Retreat
So lovely, it's close to everything in town, but feels like you're out in the country. It's even nicer in person! Spending time with family there was fabulous, we hope to come back aoon!
Red Cottage Bungalow was everything it was advertised to be! It was a comfortable retreat with gorgeous views of the river. The hosts were friendly and accommodating and helpful with directions. When going back to Rochester, I will always try to book here first!
Thank you so much, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure having you all.
Our home is located on the Zumbro River and across from Essex park, which also has the bike trail running through it. We have 6 acres in town, but you feel like you have just stepped into the country, with the wooded setting and large back yard all the way down to the sandy covered water front of the river. If you love cross-country skiing it is right outside the back door. You can rent skis at local sporting good store if you don't bring your own. We also have snow shoes for our guests to use. We are an easy straight shot to downtown, home of Mayo Clinic. Takes under 10 minutes to get there. We are 2 miles from multiple shopping and restaurant areas of North Rochester.
