About Bill Weller

It is my goal to provide a trouble free vacation for all guests. This is a home away from home, well equipped with all the conveniences.

Bill Weller purchased this house in 2014

Why Bill Weller chose Minnesota

This 3,700 sq. ft. home on the shore of Lake Phalen is located in the heart of the Twin Cities. Nature is your neighbor with the lake and regional park nearby.

What makes this house unique

Great lake views from the kitchen, dinning room, and master bedroom.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The home was clean, spacious, well-appointed and in a lovely area! We found the beds to be comfortable, and everything in excellent condition. The kitchen was stocked with plenty of plates and utensils. The appliances all worked well. Thermostats were easy to use in order to warm the home up! (we were there during a definite "cold snap"!) The snow that fell during our stay was quickly shoveled from the walks, and that was greatly appreciated! The spacious enclosed entry-porch made removing our shoes (to comply with the no-shoes policy of the home) much easier to deal with!

The walking/running path around the lake is well-maintained, and although the lake was frozen during our stay, we enjoyed going for a walk, and can imagine how nice this location would be in the summer as well. An elegant home-away-from-home!

Beautiful home, gorgeous setting, extremely spacious.

  • 5 of 5

I hosted a group of women from around the country here, and knew that we would need plenty of space, a high end kitchen, and quiet setting. This home was exceptional, and met every need we had. The kitchen has so much room and high end appliances, and two lovely dining room tables. The beds were super comfortable, and I loved that we had choices between single beds and queens. It worked perfectly. The lake is so nice to walk around in the morning, and it is very easy to get to downtown St. Paul from the location. Would highly recommend this property for large families or friend gatherings.

Everything as advertised, exceptional quality and location.

  • 5 of 5

We needed family housing for a grand-daughters wedding. Worked perfect for eight adults and an eleven year old. The place is super clean and well furnished. The owner hovered some but we decided he was simply protecting his 'baby'. One grandson ran two laps around the lake. Others swam and waded at the lake park. We were curious about the age since it is flawless, not a scratch, hard to believe ten years old. It's not within practical walking distance of restaurants or grocery stores, be willing to drive. Our big surprise was Saint Paul, what a beautiful city. The combination of a great house in an outstanding city make it easy to recommend.

Perfect accommodations for large group

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed three nights at your spacious and well-appointed home. We are eight women who have been friends for 55 years. We get together annually for a few days and this year we stayed at Lake Phalen Place. The environment was very quiet and we appreciated each having our own bed - this has not always been the case in our past trips. The home was very clean and the kitchen was equipped with all necessary cooking tools. William was very easy to work with and prompt in returning e-mail and telephone calls. Definitely would return again!

60th wedding anniversary for my parents

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay. The home was beautiful, clean and everything families would need for a relaxing stay. The rooms were wonderful for our family of 12 as well as the kitchen and we all prepared our meals and it was stocked with all the cooking amenities that you would need. The home was beautifully decorated in each room, which gave it a very homey feeling for all of us. the number of bathrooms were also accommodating for all of us. The view of the lake every morning was so relaxing as we ate our breakfast. Have access to the internet as well as the charcoal grill was also a plus for all of us. This home made a memorable weekend for my parents 60th wedding anniversary as well as us children. thank you again Bill for everything.
