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
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.
You will love this beautiful country home - so clean and well maintained. The pool table in the basement provides hours of entertainment.
Our family stayed here in mid-August of 2015 and we had a wonderful time. There was plenty of room for our family of five as well as our in-laws and other members of the family. It is quite spacious so everyone had plenty of room to spread out. As another reviewer mentioned, the bottles of water in the fridge were much appreciated and though we didn't find out until afterwards, there was also a small bowl of candy. The children found that first and apparently helped themselves!
The outside patio was great and the view was outstanding. It is just farmland behind you and the sunrises and sunsets were beautiful. We were also fortunate enough be there during a meteor shower and being able to lay down in the grass with minimal lighting to obstruct the view was great. All of us saw multiple shooting stars. All in all, it is a great place to stay and we highly recommend it.
We stayed for 4 nights at the Shamrock in July 2015. It was a great location for our family reunion in Caledonia/Eitzen. We were 2 teenagers and 2 adults and we had plenty of room to hang out together or alone. Our family enjoyed coming over for a game of pool and to watch TV and to cook out. The house was clean and well kept. The bottles of water in the refrigerator upon arrival were a welcome sight after a day of air travel and driving. I have rented dozens of houses on VRBO and Airbnb, and this one was one of the best. Great owner, great communication, and a great house. Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful time at the Shamrock. It was perfectly kept and everthing we expected!
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.
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.
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!!
Thirty minutes to LaCrosse, WI. Fifteen minutes to the Mississippi River. Fifty minutes to riverboat gambling casino at Marquette, IA. Ninety minutes to Rochester, MN.
