About Kyle Te Poel
Kyle and Nicky are your hosts. We both grew up in Minnesota, and after 7 years living on both the east and west coasts, moved back home and landed happily in Stillwater. We share loves of nature, baseball, music, good food, and exploring new places (and are enthusiastic about sharing our favorites with you!).
Kyle Te Poel purchased this House in 2017
Why Kyle Te Poel chose Stillwater
Kyle is a city boy, Nicky is a farm girl; finding a community that satisfied both our needs in both a home and our lifestyles led us to Stillwater, whose entertainment value and charm exceed its size. Beyond that, we hoped to find a home surrounded by natural beauty, with an eye on protecting it for the future, and we lucked out in finding just that. To have nearly 30 acres of high quality woods less than 2 miles from downtown Stillwater, and just half an hour from Minneapolis & St. Paul was too good to pass up. We invite you to see for yourself!
What makes this House unique
As soon as we pulled in the driveway the first time while house-hunting, we were immediately smitten with the property and know you will be, too! Within minutes you can be in the city, a state park, or even another state (Wisconsin is just a bridge crossing away). Enjoy regular sightings of deer and owls, among other wildlife, from the yard and trails. Kyle is a professional naturalist and runs his own business (Next Bend Birding & Photography) leading guided birding/nature tours. Add one of his tours to your stay!

We had a great getaway weekend, and the fact that our rental property and “hosts” were so welcoming played a big role in that. The house and land are gorgeous, and the hot tub is a nice plus!
Thanks, Nikki! We are glad to hear you had a great time, and we’re able to enjoy the house and amenities, even with the yucky weather! Hope to see you again!
Wonderful Experience - As advertised.
We loved it!!!
Thanks! Glad you were able to enjoy the hot tub and fireplace; perfect time of year for it!
Peaceful. Grounds are enchanting. Tucked away but still close to downtown Stillwater (5 min). Comfortable beds and couch.
Very much recommend!
Thanks so much for staying with us, Jade! We hope you thoroughly enjoyed your time in Stillwater, and time relaxing here, indoors and out. Take care.
Great spot for quick weekend getaway
We were in town for a wedding and needed a place that was kid friendly. The place was spacious, clean and filled with lots of outdoor things to do. It was a great location, being just a few minutes from downtown Stillwater, right by Fairy Falls, and within a quick 10-15 minute drive from any shopping you might need. Overall, we were comfortable and felt welcomed by the owners. Highly recommend!
Thanks, Sarah! We’re so glad the space worked out well for your family, and that you were able to get outside and relax, and cozy up by the fireplace at night. Come back anytime!
A Heavenly Escape
Beginning with the lovely winding driveway to this idyllic location, we thoroughly enjoyed every moment. The accommodations were spectacular, along with the solitude and the beauty with which we were surrounded/ We highly recommend this destination and we certainly plan to return.
Thank you, Jackie! We're so glad that you were able to enjoy the space and our piece of the great outdoors. Happy anniversary! Hope to see you again.
Great girls weekend!
The place was perfect for our girls weekend. Close to downtown Stillwater, beautiful property, and we were able to enjoy the grill and hot tub! Hosts were great - Wonderful experience!!
Thanks so much for your review. We were so happy to host you; thanks for being great guests! We’re glad the space accommodated you all and allowed you time in town, out in the woods, grill and hot tub time, and relaxing indoors! Come back anytime!
Stillwater is Minnesota's oldest city. It retains its historic character but also offers a very modern dining scene. Downtown offers many wonderful, local shops and restaurants, and is known for its large antique shops, long-distance walking/biking trails, and frequent community festivals and special events. Located on the St. Croix River and near two large State Parks, several terrific regional parks, and one National Park (St. Croix National Scenic Riverway), Stillwater is also an outdoors paradise offering a variety of recreation opportunities both on the water and on land. The area is host to many interesting species of wildlife including over 320 bird species!
For bigger city adventures, the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul are about a half-hour away. All major professional sports (MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA, WNBA, and MLS!), major concert venues, world-class restaurants, museums and theatre, and arguably the best parks and trails among any major US metropolitan area await your visit!
