About Lois Johnson

I am a semi-retired interior designer and enjoy all aspects of creating lovely surroundings. I have children and grandchildren in my neighborhood and we all enjoy this area. I enjoy meeting people and I believe I am friendly and easy going.

Lois Johnson purchased this house in 1997

Why Lois Johnson chose St Paul

I have always enjoyed turn of the century architecture and seeing wonderful structures renovated and brought back to their original grandeur.

What makes this house unique

You will be within walking distance of wonderful shops, fine restaurants, downtown St. Paul, fitness center, coffee shops, bookstores. Strolling down beautiful Summit Avenue (blocks of lovely Victorian homes) is a lovely way to end the day.

Gorgeous Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family would highly recommend this home to others. Absolutely beautifully decorated home with much attention to detail. Plenty of linens and towels, kitchen well stocked, laundry room convenient. Loved the back porch and spent many hours at the outside table and chairs enjoying the weather. Used the electric bbq for steaks and hot dogs. Very comfortable and close to grocery and we would recommend the red cow restaurant (literally behind alley of house) for fine dining and drinks. Great parking space, narrow but we fit two cars. Family reunion for a Bethel U graduation, family of five adults. This is the place to book!

Excellent area, cozy, charming condo. Loved it! Fabulous restaurants, easy walk to Xcel Centre.

  • 5 of 5

The condo is charming. We enjoyed the wam weather as we sat on the private back deck and ate our breakfast in the lovely sunroom. The living room was very comfortable. It did not take long to feel at home. A slight challenge was parking a larger vehicle. We were able to park in the driveway but it is a tight squeeze. On street parking is available but not always directly in front of the unit. Having said this, I would not hesitate to return. The condo was in a fabulous location. It was easy to get to from the highway and easy to go to the outlet malls and mall of America. There are endless fabulous restaurants one street over and it is an easy walk to Xcel Centre. St. Paul Cathedral is breathtaking. The area felt safe. Don't hesitate, book it!

Great Place to Enjoy the Twin Cities

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, and very well furnished. The location is great. A number of very popular restaurants, pubs and shops are within a short walk. Even when it is cold. Check out the Happy Gnome and Solo Vino (wine shop). We had a terrific stay. Parking is tight so you may have to park on the street (for us was not a problem) if you have a large SUV.

This vrbo is a cozy home in a safe and convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

It is decorated beautifully and has a warm and welcoming feel. The neighborhood is conveniently located near many restaurants and coffee shops as well as down the street from the beautiful St. Paul cathedral, which is a great landmark to find your way home. We walked to downtown St. Paul and kept the vehicle in the driveway... It was quite a hike to go that far. The beds were very comfy and it was very quiet. We had good enough weather that we sat on the deck in the back one evening. We loved the deck and the sunroom! The only tricky thing was the shower where there's a fine line between hot (ouch!) and cold (brrr!), tiny movements of the handle and you could get a nice temp. I Finally learned that on my 3rd day there. Both of us agree we'd love to stay at the Lois Johnson again on future St. Paul visits!
