About Jean Kruse

My husband and I have lived in this area our whole lives. Our children are grown, but we are not quite retirement age yet.

Jean Kruse purchased this house in 2011

Why Jean Kruse chose Rochester

This home was built in the 1970's as a retirement home for the owners of the farm next door. We bought the farm in 1987 and this home was sold to another party. In 2011 it came up for sale and my husband and I bought it. We named it THE SHAMROCK and decided to rent it out as a vacation home, a place for hunters to stay, (we have lots of wild turkeys and deer on the farm) or a place where families could stay that are coming back to Caledonia for a wedding or family reunion, etc.

What makes this house unique

You will love this beautiful country home - so clean and well maintained. The pool table in the basement provides hours of entertainment.

Weekend Getaway With Friends

  • 5 of 5

The Shamrock is located in a very scenic area in SE Minnesota. We enjoyed hiking in the nearby State Park. We also enjoyed the variety of excellent small-town restaurants in the area (especially Little Miami).

The house was the perfect place for the four couples that met together for an annaul weekend getaway. The house was immaculate and there was plenty of room for all of us. We enjoyed cooking, using the grill, and the yard was great. We must have played pool for hours!

The owners were very responsive to the mutliple questions I had before our arrival and were great to work with. I highly recommed the Shamrock for your getaway to the beautiful area of SE Minnesota.

Exceptionally clean and well maintained!

We stayed at The Shamrock for an annual get together with friends. We were very pleased with the accommodations. The photos were exactly accurate. The owners were very friendly and helpful when we had questions. Would recommend this to anyone wanting a clean, comfortable place to stay.

Owner's Response: We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. We love the "quiet" out here. Just off the beaten path, but still close to restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Thank you for choosing The Shamrock. We appreciate your business.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

After recently loosing my father, our family and extended family recently ventured to the Caledonia area for the funeral and stayed at the Shamrock. Several families within the family stayed in this "Bed & (do it yourself) Breakfast". It is spotless and so incredibly comfortable. I have stayed at Home Wood Suites and Embassy Suites and neither hold a candle to The Shamrock. If you are in the area and need a place to stay and do not choose The Shamrock, you are missing a real treat. If you are into the "frat party style" accommodation, please go elsewhere, as we don't want this gem disturbed. A 5 Star Place!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We continue to try to improve on The Shamrock, recently adding a second flat screen TV, and some additional seating. We are trying to grow our business, so again, thank you for your review and for taking such good care of the home when you visited. Come see us again!!

The Shamrock

  • 5 of 5

The Shamrock is a very nice home in a great location for those who enjoy the outdoor activities of SE Minnesota. My friends and I recently stayed there for a hunting trip and we will never go back to a motel again. Plenty of space to stretch out and all the amenities you could ask for. Thanks to Jeannie and Larry for making our stay so stress free...
