The main floor features a large, comfy living room with a 4K Ultra HD TV, a formal dining room, a stylish half-bath, a butler's pantry and a spacious, updated, eat-in cook's kitchen featuring newer appliances and granite counter tops. Upstairs there are two bedrooms: the spacious master bedroom features a king-sized pillow-top mattress, a large closet, dresser and bedside tables with reading lamps; the second bedroom has a queen-sized-bed pillow-top mattress, a dresser and reading lamps. Also on the second floor is the newly renovated bathroom with a walk-in tile shower with high-end fixtures (dual shower heads: rain and hand-held), a heated tile floor and a wall mounted heated towel rack/radiator. (Stairway chair-lift available if you need a boost to the second floor.) The convenient and bright laundry room is located in the basement with complimentary use of the washer and dryer for our guests. There is ample on-street parking in front of the building.

About Elizabeth and Rudolf

We've loved and restored this unique duplex over many years. Elizabeth's a Minneapolis native but a St. Paul convert. Rudolf who hails from the Netherlands, loves the city of St. Paul especially its topography with many hills and vistas. It's a great city for walking and exploring.

Elizabeth and Rudolf purchased this condo in 1995

Why Elizabeth and Rudolf chose Summit Hill

As avid travelers, we love well-appointed, clean and comfortable hotels and vacation rentals. We hope you'll love ours too! It's well located one block off of Grand Avenue in the heart of the Summit Hill neighborhood of St. Paul. It's walking or biking distance to a multitude of unique restaurants and shops and less than 10 minutes to downtown St. Paul.

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location! Besides that, our guests have loved the peacefulness of the space. Our wall colors were professionally chosen to create a serene environment. From the separate, private entrance with the screened-in front porch to the light-filled, spacious rooms, updated kitchen and baths, we invite you to make this your next home away from home when in the Twin Cities.

Welcome to St. Paul! Voted by USA Today as the 'Best Romantic North American Getaway for 2014', you will love exploring our romantic capital city from your perfectly located vacation home. We're located in Summit Hill, a cozy, walkable neighborhood of beautiful historic homes, colleges, restaurants and unique shopping. Your vacation rental is on a picturesque cul-de-sac but just one block off of bustling Grand Avenue, home to many of the best shopping and dining establishments St. Paul has to offer. You can easily spend your time wandering the immediate neighborhood with its shops, restaurants and historic homes but we're also conveniently located close to downtown St. Paul which is a ten minute bus ride or five minutes by car. (It's also a great walking or biking destination: it's down hill but you can always catch the bus to get back home!) Downtown St. Paul is situated on the Mississippi River and has many beautiful historic areas and also great dining,entertainment and a year round Farmer's Market. In the summer months, you can take a tour of the Mississippi on a paddle boat. In the winter, partake in the Winter Carnival's many events or go ice skating outside at Landmark Center. The Xcel Center (Home of the Wild hockey team and concerts) the Landmark Center, the Ordway (Home of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and the Minnesota Opera) are all located downtown. We're also close to many colleges: Macalester, William Mitchell College of Law, St. Thomas, St. Catherine's, Hamline and Concordia are all within a ten minute drive. The University of Minnesota campuses are also easy to get to either via the scenic river road or via the freeway. Freeway access is equally easy: we are 1.5 miles to Interstate 94 and less than a mile to 35E. Our new light rail line running between downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul is close by. There is a bike rental kiosk one block away in front of our closest supermarket, Kowalski's. If you'd like to explore our twin city, Minneapolis, it's also a short drive or bike ride away where you will find more great shopping, the Walker Art Center, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Twins Stadium. The Mall of America is a short 15 minute drive with free parking. We're also close to golf courses, public tennis courts, parks and lakes. Of course, we're also a fantastic stop before or after heading up north to cabin country or the BWCA!

Makes winter desirable

  • 5 of 5

Elizabeth is so welcoming, her condo so comfortable and ideally located that three Californians dreamed of relocating to St. Paul. Thank goodness we have family there serving as an excuse to return and stay in this rental!

This property was in a great neighborhood close to restaurants, shops & downtown St. Paul. Only drawback was 4 of us had to share one shower, but a little planning took care of that.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Elizabeth was very accommodating and helpful. The space is beautiful, incredibly clean and comfy. We loved using the front porch and the keurig coffee maker was a blessing on the porch with the cool Fall weather. We would highly recommend this apartment for anyone's visit to the St.Paul area. It's easy walking to shopping and restaurants!

Beautiful Home in St. Paul

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our long weekend in St Paul. The house is within blocks of shopping and restaurants and easy to walk to. Since it was raining quite a bit of the time we stayed home and enjoyed playing games with a glass of wine and sitting in the porch. We did a little bit of cooking and found the kitchen to be equipped with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and the home is very nicely decorated. There are also a lot of beautiful homes to see while walking in the neighborhood. We recommend staying here.
