About Liz Nelson
In 1998, I almost purchased the small house across the street. I remember standing in the driveway, pointing at my current home, and saying to the realtor, 'That is the house I want.' Seven years later, I bought it. I think you will find the feeling of 'yesteryear' and see the remnants of the company town this neighborhood has to offer. There is a Bohemian feel with several artists living within walking distance. Several years ago, I remodeled with the desire to appeal to travelers. I am a traveler who enjoys a more provincial experience to a complete touristy experience. If you are similar, I think you will find this in Dutchtown. Additionally, I have been in Stillwater for 26 years (unbelievable!). I would love to serve as your personal consigliere.
Liz Nelson purchased this Studio in 2005
Why Liz Nelson chose Stillwater
Natural light pours in from the six skylights featured in the studio. Being up there when it rains gives you the feeling of being in a birdhouse. Stillwater is the most visited place in Minnesota, second only to the Mall of America. BTW, the Mall of America could definitely be a day trip given it is only 32 miles from here. The one mile walk or bike to Historic Downtown Stillwater gives you the feeling of being a local. Wineries and brewies are popping up everywhere which could also make for a fun day trip. The little towns up and down the St. Croix River Valley could provide enough activity for a week and then some. Marine on St. Croix to the North boosts itself as being the Birth Place of Minnesota, although so does Stillwater:) Further north is Taylor's Falls and St. Croix Falls, both having individual charm and worth checking out. Down river is the quaint village of Afton were you could easily laze away a day. Further south you will find Prescott which is at the confluence of the St. Croix River and Minnesota river. Lunch and music at Muddy Water's Salon is always worth the drive. Of course, the twin cities is only about a 30 minute drive and has everything a large city has to offer. Fine dining, museums, and urban flair is abundant - yes, even in the winter!
What makes this Studio unique
The charm of this architecturally designed home is it's setting. It is located on one of the steepest hills in Stillwater which adds to the allure. The large windows help bring the outside into the living space. I was raised on a hobby farm so I find that digging in the dirt is not only in my blood, but therapy. Slowly, I have introduced many native plants into my gardens. I'm amazed by how many pollinators; such as hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees, I see around since making the transition to natives.

Great location for our stay in Stillwater. Just 3 minute drive into town where all the shops and restaurants are. Nice and quiet neighborhood. Surrounded by trees and wildlife so you feel as if you are staying in the woods. Very clean and nice I would stay here again.
Clean and attractive studio.
Quiet, clean, and welcoming. Will visit again if in the area.
My husband and I enjoyed our first visit to Stillwater over Labor Day weekend. The only thing that dampened our stay were cloudy days and some drizzle. Liz's home is in a perfect location. Stroll out the backyard and turn left on a short path leading to the bike trail. Turn right and enjoy a stroll or bike ride to downtown. Turn left and enjoy the scenic canopy of a tree lined path heading west toward the cities. Her home was very comfortable and like others noted you almost feel as if you are in a tree house when looking out the windows. Santa Clause came early for me as the boutiques were too hard to resists. I have already planned my next trip to celebrate my sister's upcoming wedding. I am anxious to share this Midwest gem to my family! Thank you Liz for a great mini vacation.
Let me just say, "You two were a delight!"
Relaxing Weekend Getaway
Beautiful loft with everything you might need for a relaxing weekend. Close to downtown. Liz was very friendly and helpful. We'll be coming back to stay again!
Located in what locals call Dutchtown which is on the north side of Stillwater. Dutchtown was considered the wrong side of the tracks back in the day, only being annexed officially into Stillwater in 2005. This property is adjacent to Brown's Creek Bike Trail. Walk the track to downtown Stillwater or hop on your bike and see where you will end up.
