ST. CROIX RIVER ESCAPE (FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT INSPIRED)

Stillwater Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Escape for a week to this Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home, an extremely unique, natural, built-into-the-river-bluff setting on a picturesque 3 acre lot with close to 300' of private river frontage. It can accommodate 4 to 5 people and is located on the Wisconsin bluff, looking over to Stillwater. The location is very private, yet just 1.5 miles south of downtown Stillwater and about 5 miles north of Hudson. It is also just down the road, almost walking distance, from The Valley House banquet and wedding facility, making it a choice event location.

Note: If you were unaware, there is a new bridge project going through Stillwater for the next few years with associated detours that change week to week. The project starts about a mile across the river and connects to Wisconsin about 1/3 mile north of the Escape. The lift bridge will be in service for vehicle traffic until the new bridge is complete, then will only allow bike and walking traffic. Here is the link to the bridge crossing information site: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/stcroixcrossing/index.html

About JT

We are river loving couple who want to give our guests the not-your-average-hotel opportunity to stay in this cozy and unique setting and share the beauty of nature and the river.

JT purchased this chalet in 2012

Why JT chose Stillwater

The unique private natural setting on the bluff, large lot, and the beach below sold us on this 'escape'. It is very close to both Stillwater and Hudson, two delightful river towns.

What makes this chalet unique

The privacy, architectural harmony, and natural beauty is amazing.

Beautiful Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5
This cabin exceeded our expectations. The cabin was very clean. Beautiful location. The view over the river was amazing. We loved the multiple decks and the amphitheatre. Definitely want to come back. Our four children totally agree. We did not have time to do see and do all the attractions close by. We loved spending time in Stillwater. We could not get over the child size cones at Nelson's Ice Cream. The pizza at Open Fire Pizza was very tasty. Square Lake Park was a great place to swim. The Minnesota Zoo is definitely worth visiting. JT was very helpful in the whole process and providing us with directions to get there.
We will recommend this cabin to friends and family. We will be back.

Great Location in a Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5
We had a great time staying here - beautiful unique home with scenic views...the construction makes it a bit of a hassle, but hopefully that ends soon.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review and input Julie! The hassle I am guessing is the current detour due to the new overpass on highway 35 that adds about 4 minutes to the trip to Stillwater. This particular detour is supposed to be in effect for only another 5 weeks, although there are many other changes going on in the Stillwater area as the highway 36 bridge project continues over the next couple years. In the end there will be some nice features, including a new biking and walking path across the new bridge and through the new extended riverside park project.

A visit in the Fall

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here as a family group for our son's wedding over a 9 days period. The property was everything we expected and more. We entertained at the property too and it is well proportioned for the stay with ample space.
Super facilities for our stay with everything provided. Super comms with landlord who provided a 'personalised' greeting for us. Very hospitable
Would definitely stay here again given the opportunity.
Log fire in the evening really set the evening off. Very cosy.

The Escape is a truly unique vacation spot. It was perfect for a family reunion and a comfy home for several days for two couples. We strongly recommend it.

Getaway

  • 4 of 5
Great owner to work with. Connecting and getting the contract done was easy and JT was very accommodating and pro-active about checking in to ensure satisfaction. Property is very conveniently located to Stillwater. Hudson is a quick drive as well. Property is gorgeous and unique. No matter where you sat there was interesting architecture and beautiful outdoors to view. The house was clean and had everything we needed in the kitchen.

Map

This is a truly unique, modern, yet natural setting that is difficult to describe, but somewhere between a chalet and tree house with multi-tier decks and patios will get you close. The property is about 3 acres with approximately 300' of private water frontage on a very wide area of the St. Croix River. The beach lies down the steep sandy bluff. Although the property has private water front, the house sits in a private cove at the top of a steep, sandy, treed hill. We hike up and down a rustic marked path, but it is about 350' of hill and is a short, but strenuous hike. It is only accessible for the fit and adventurous and boots and gloves are recommended.

Please Note: This is just south of Stillwater, but on the other side of the lift bridge.
