Marine School-house Garden Cottage apartment unit converted to VRBO. This bright 1 bedroom/1 bath second story apartment (with additional sleeping on a queen-sized hide-a-bed couch) has an up in the air, birds nest feel, as it overlooks the cobblestone court surrounded by woods and nature below. Walk to the historic General Store, Brookside Bar and Grill, Village Scoop ice cream (summer), St. Croix Chocolate Company, Stonehouse Museum (summer), local Lutheran Church, or bring your bike to ride some of the Saint Croix Valley's scenic roads and trails. In summer, bring your kids to a really great beach on Square Lake (just minutes away), to any of the river accesses to explore cliffs and river along the St. Croix. Or, bring your kayak or canoe to check out the beautiful river (access just below the General Store, William O'brien State Park, and many other places along the river). On weekends in summer, enjoy live music at the Brookside Bar and Grill (very short walk, see their website), visit Stillwater for antiques, riverfront parks, and additional restaurants (10 minute drive south). To the north check out the Gammelgarden Museum in Scandia (see website), Franconia Sculpture Park (see website), or try the zip line at Trollhaugen Aerial Adventure Park (northeast on Wisconsin side of river). During winter, cross country ski William O'brien Park's trails, venture to Trollhaugen Ski Area (17 miles) for tubing, snow boarding and skiing, or head ten minutes south to Stillwater for shopping and antiquing, great wine (Domacin Wine Bar), food (take your pick of many unique restaurants), or locally brewed beer (Liftbridge Brewery).

Cozy, cute apartment
Very clean, well kept apartment! Close to restaurants, shops, and awesome state parks. The apartment had everything that we needed plus some fun extras that weren't expected but were lovely! We had a great time thanks to exceptional hospitality!
Wonderful getaway in a cute place in a lovely town :)
We really enjoyed our stay :) The wine that was included was quite a nice bonus!
Perfect for overflow family
Great place with wonderful owners. Quiet and comfortable with lots of goodies.
Exactly what we wanted!
Just returned home after spending 5 days here and it was lovely! It was clean, well decorated and quiet. Yes, that bathroom is a little rough, but it did its job and it was clean! When we came in the AC was on, there was a bottle of wine and the electric candles were flickering. It was such a nice environment to come into after driving for nearly 3 days. It's far enough from everything to see the stars and hear the cicadas (a new thing for us) and close enough to everything to entertain the kids. I would gladly stay here again. Thank you!!
