Nestled on a hillside in beautiful Stillwater Minnesota, Scenic Overlook Cottage overlooks one of the most beautiful waterways in the Midwest; the St. Croix River. This cottage is attached to a French Normandy-style house and is a very private, ample 1200 square feet. A European immersion experience will enhance this perfect spot for a getaway. This special and memorable home has been highlighted in Better Homes and Gardens. It is a premium property at a preferred location.
It is located within a comfortable 25-minute walk, an 8th of a mile, either through a beautiful historic neighborhood or along the new bike/walking path along the river. At the bottom of your cottage driveway is Stillwater’s southern scenic overlook where you will get the best view of the new St. Croix Crossing Bridge into Wisconsin.
Sweeping French doors into a bedroom, a full kitchen and bar, living and dining room area and a bathroom with shower all on one level makes the cottage easily accessible and livable for short stays or an extended stay. There are a lot of great restaurants, sightseeing and activities within easy reach. Bikers Welcome! The owners are friendly, easily reached and offer prompt service. We look forward to meeting you.

About Louise Fenner
Louise and Martin are both European and their home reflects it. Louise is from England while Martin is from Switzerland. As soon as they found this home set high on the hills overlooking the St. Croix River, Martin felt at home. It was reminiscent of his childhood home in Switzerland. Louise took great joy designing and decorating the home in a European-style familiar to both of them. Better Homes and Gardens took note when they featured the home in their magazine.
Louise Fenner purchased this Cottage in 1994

What can I say, this place is lovely. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and wonderful views. You can tell a lot of love and creativity went into the construction and decor of this “cottage”. I felt like I was on a mini trip to Europe. We will be staying here again in the future.
Dear P and R,
It was nice to have you over Christmas. It was so festive to have all of our various visitors and parties. We loved it!
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again.
Beautiful Cottage, Awesome View
The cottage was so beautifully decorated. The view of the new St. Croix River Bridge was wonderful. The neighborhood is quiet despite being just a short distance from a major road. Louise was great and so kind to help me when I had an issue with my travel plans. Overall, a fantastic experience.
Beautiful home and view.
The home was lovely with all the comforts of home. and less then 2 minutes from Stillwater.
Scenic Overlook Cottage — A Quiet Peaceful Respite
Overlook Cottage is lovely and charming — so comfortable and cozy and so tastefully and selectively appointed and so beautifully situated! It’s a surprising jewel!
Well placed treasures and pleasant surprises throughout to discover, enjoy and ruminate about.
The spectacular morning sunlight streaming across St. Croix River was such a warm and welcoming sight and stunning view — a great way to start any day!
Staying in this lovely cottage was unquestionably the highlight of our stay.
We stumbled unknowingly upon the village of Stillwater itself with all its history, charm, variety of stores and dramatic setting — some times plain luck is better than careful planning!:-)
Thanks very much, Louise and Martin.

Every element of this property is beautifully appointed. The location and decor are breathtaking; Louise is truly an artist with how she fashions everything to be so lovely and historic. I am amazed with how well done this ‘cottage’ on the lower level of their large, gorgeous home is. You will have all the privacy you would like, and if you need anything Louise is incredibly responsive. We could not have asked for more.
Thanks J! I am so glad the cold did not prevent you from persevering to a wonderful holiday. The cottage smelled heavenly with your beautiful custom essential oils!! Thank you for that treat. Lots of love and best wishes for 2018!!
Absolutely perfect lodging. So comfortable, peaceful tranquility, plush bedding.
As you enter the cottage you are instantly aware of how calming the space is.
Loved the Cottage. We highly recommend.
We loved being a part of your family’s special time!! Look forward to next time ❤️
