HUGE HOUSE ON IRVINE PARK - 5,000 SQ FT - WALK TO XCEL CENTER

St Paul House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Located on beautiful Irvine Park, the 1889 Ohage mansion is a couple of blocks from the Xcel Center, the Mississippi River, and downtown Saint Paul. This is the place for families, wedding guests, groups of friends, book lovers, foodies, writers, or any type of group!

Leave your car in the driveway and stroll to the X, the Ordway, the Fitzgerald, the Science Museum, The Children's Museum and other venues. Fine and casual dining and the river walk are minutes away.

The mansion has two parlors, a dining room that seats 10, a large kitchen with a commercial stove, a basement bar with pool table, bubble hockey, pinball, and a 50' plasma TV. There are four+ bedrooms. Two bedrooms have queen beds and share a full bath. The third bedroom is a suite with a queen bed in one room and a twin/daybed in the adjoining room. The fourth bedroom has two twin beds. Another full bath is on the bedroom level.

The historic Irvine Park neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Take the self guided Irvine Park walking tour or the hosted tour of the Alexander Ramsey house and eat at historic Forepaugh’s Restaurant. See for yourself what preservation looks like in Saint Paul!

You will find freshly roasted Dunn Brothers coffee and breakfast bars in the kitchen. Enjoy your drinks with delicious ice from the ice maker at the basement wet bar. Leave your hair dryer at home and don't worry about wrinkles; we supply an iron and ironing board.

Should you wish to get in your car, downtown Minneapolis, the Mall of America, and the airport are 10-15 minutes away.

The owners and their dog or a caretaker may be on site in the third floor apartment which shares a common hallway through the first and second floors. They are available to help you enjoy your stay in historic Saint Paul.

Everything We Could Have Wanted

  • 5 of 5
All previous rave reviews are true. We stayed at Ohage House during the weekend of the Big Ten Hockey Tournament. It was everything we could have possibly wanted. Walking distance to the Xcel and the 7th Street pubs and restaurants. No parking fees with ample parking on the property. Plenty of room for our group, including those that needed some personal space for doing work. Great kitchen and dining area for preparing and eating our own meals. Awesome basement bar and game area. We spent more time there and less watching hockey and going out than we would have anticipated just because it was so comfortable. Would love to come back when we could enjoy the porch and grounds. Kudos to the owners for creating such a welcoming and fabulous place to stay.

Wonderful place to stay. Beautiful location for easy access to places from Minneapolis to Stillwater. This place has everything in the way of things you might need to make your stay comfortable. The owners are not only extremely nice but very classy. You feel like royalty when you stay in this house.

Very Nice Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a maximum of 12 people in the home for a celebration this weekend. There was more than enough room to be comfortable and mill around. The bedrooms were very nice. We stayed for two nights with 8 people (two were children) which was also very comfortable. We could have fit two more adults in beds just fine. The pictures do not reflect how much square footage you get for the rental. The kitchen was a nice size, and is set up for gourmet cooking. The basement game room was absolutely perfect - there was no need to go out. The basement bar was a popular place to be. I highly recommend this rental and I would certainly rent it again!

Superior in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5
VRBO should create a new category for homes such as the Ohage House as our experience at this stellar property was beyond excellent. The home is huge, historic, handsomely appointed, and homey at the same time. The owners' respect for vintage, passion for modern, and designer flair for blending the two were evident in each room of the home. And the owners themselves treat you as if you were staying at a B & B as their guests, not in rental property. Their welcoming touches were everywhere from coffee and condiments in the kitchen to sparkling water in each bedroom. The kitchen lacked for nothing as did any other area of the home. The game room was a retro, yet 21st century, retreat for all of us. While St. Paul's weather was a bit less than hospitable, the home stayed warm and cozy the entire week. The city of St. Paul is also a treasure and the owners were certain to provide wonderful suggestions to help us shop and explore. The home's proximity to so many great spots is just another reason the Ohage House rates as superior. We filled the house as we were in town for our son's wedding at the magnificent Cathedral of St. Paul. Friends gathers at the Ohage House with us on Sunday before departing and also marveled at this unique and wonderful mansion. As Southerners we pride ourselves on hospitality. The Ohage House, owners, and the kind people we met in St. Paul are definitely in that same category! What a special place to have created such magical memories for our family. Thank you!

Wonderful Experience at Ohage House

  • 5 of 5
We were in St. Paul for my son's wedding. Ohage House is beautifully decorated, just a couple blocks from downtown but miles from there in terms of atmosphere and setting. The furniture and beds were very comfortable and it was immaculate. It became the place for friends and family to gather during the weekend. We had the rehearsal dinner for 60 there and so many of our young and older guests said they felt like they were being entertained at home, exactly the feeling I hoped to create. Cossetta's catered the event and food was excellent. Highly recommend this spot--the owners are helpful but unobtrusive, the grounds are beautiful. I would definitely return!
