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!

Large, beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

Large, beautiful home in St. Paul. A few of the pictures on the Home-Away site are a little miss leading. Picture #4 is showing the house from across the lake. There is a street that separates the house from the lake. Picture #10 is not on the property. The owner has a office in the basement and although he was both on and off the site, this was not a problem for our family. I have also rented several VRBO and other Air B&B's but never had to send a copy of my drivers license or had such a high deposit, it all worked out.

With the laundry list of what "not" to do, we did feel a little nervous about moving around in the home, however our family tends to be "rule followers" so we knew this wouldn't be a problem.

No complaints of the home and remember to bring your own bath soap.

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

The home is beautiful and the location is also a very special spot. We were there with 9 women in our family for a weekend. We had a lot of fun together. I recommend you carefully read all the rules. They are all very reasonable but it is a detailed contract. I have rented many VRBO but never had to send a copy of my drivers license and sign a long contract. The damage deposit was $500. We just felt a little nervous about moving around in the home. No complaints of the home though.

Owner's Response: I'm happy the renter enjoyed Lake Phalen Place. Not sure why the renter would question signing a rental agreement, giving a photo ID and a refundable deposit? It is necessary to screen renters and have them take responsibility to take care of my home.

Greate place and location

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful as was the location. We had a party of 10 and everyone enjoyed their stay at this home.

The owner/renter was also wonderful. Quick communication and pleasant to work with.

Homey and convenient

  • 5 of 5

It was great to be in the Twin Cities without being around the down town hustle and bustle. The house was perfect for our 12 guests and we had a wonderful stay!

Beautiful home in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Lake Phalen Place is a beautiful home. We stayed there with two couples and two singles. The house is big enough that we were all comfortable. The home was clean and welcoming. If I find myself at Lake Phalen Place again, I will take the time to take a walk around the lake. We had a very relaxing couple of days!

Family Thanksgiving in St. Paul

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely place for 11 members of our family to stay for the Thanksgiving weekend: myself, my adult two daughters and son and their partners, the brother of my daughter in law and my three grandchildren. Comfy, lovely place. We cooked, ate, played games, re-connected with each other around the fire, read, walked around the lake, went for runs, built a snowman and used the place as a home-base from which to explore various fun spots around the Cities. It was remote and quiet in it's beautiful setting, but close enough to our local relatives that we could easily come and go, including gathering at their home in Falcon Heights for a memorable Thanksgiving meal. Thanks, Bill!
