Über dieses Objekt

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Our house on the St. Croix River, less than an hour from the Twin Cities, was built as a summer home by my parents, on property in the family since 1912. Set very close to the river shore, the house enjoys unparalleled river views and easy access down a short path to the shore, to great swimming, a dock and boat landing. The St. Croix River is a federally-protected National Scenic Riverway, with no development whatever on the opposite Wisconsin shore and hills directly across from our house, ...
the setting is pristine, quiet, and unspoiled. The water is clean, the bottom is sandy, and the swimming is great, as is the fishing. Available for renters' use is our canoe plus two kayaks. . Originally built in 1940, the house has been added to and updated over the years. The master bedroom suite was added in 1959 and renovated in 1993, and the kitchen was enlarged and fully remodeled in 1993. Facing the river is a flagstone terrace, outside fireplace, front lawn with eating table, comfortable seating, a hammock, and birdfeeders with numerous visitors. Our hummingbirds, goldfinches and woodpeckers are regulars here, and you're sure to hear and see the spectacular pileated woodpecker if you keep the peanut feeder filled. There are three bedrooms with twin beds, plus a screened sleeping porch closest to the river with two more beds. One bathroom has a tub and shower and the other bath has a stall shower. In addition there is an excellent outside shower, great after a swim.The kitchen is fully equipped, has a round eating table plus a pass-through to the dining area of the living room. The kitchen also has a built-in sofa bed for an occasional visitor, or for relaxing while dinner is cooking. The large living room is comfortably furnished, has a bow-front with large windows facing the river, and a wood-burning fireplace. Kitchen and master bedroom both have ceiling fans and there are several portable fans. Close to the house is our nice shady tennis court. Our deep shady ravine offers exploring adventures with a spectacular double waterfall and pristine stream that flows into the river next to the house. Fishing is good up and down the shoreline or from the dock. Next to the property is a public boat-launching ramp, and just a mile south is the William O'Brien State Park, with camping sites, hiking trails, river access with a boat launching ramp and a separate swimming pond with sandy beach. The closest town, 10 minutes south, is the historic village of Marine-on-St-Croix, once a major sawmill for the white pine logging industry during the mid-to-late 19th and early 20th century, when huge log drives were the principal traffic on the river. The larger town of Stillwater,18 miles south on the river, was also a major center of the lumberjack era and today offers antique shops, paddlewheel steamboats and numerous restaurants. The town of Taylor's Falls, known for rock climbing and another Interstate Park, is an equal distance upriver to the north.

upon arriving at the home, we found laundry(towels and bedding) hanging in the yard and some packed in a small washing machine being washed in cold water. the rest of the unclean laundry was found in a basket, and we were asked by the owner's relative to take care of cleaning the rest.the appliances were less than clean and rusted. we also tried using the so-called beach, where we found mud that we sunk in and and a fast current and drop-off in river, we have small children and thought this was not an appropriate vacation home for our family.

Vermieter-Kommentar: The complaint about the unfinished laundry on arrival is correct - the previous renter failed their contractual responsibility to leave all their laundry clean, folded and put away, which has never happend before. For this unfortunate occurrence we reimbursed the complainant $250. Regarding the complaint that our beach was muddy and therefore unusable, the reason is this: In summer 2013 the water level in the St. Croix River remained unusually high ever since the usual springtime high water, and therefore until just prior to this renter's arrival our swimming beach was under water, and therefore remained wet and muddy for about a week while it dried out. This situation, while unusual, was beyond any human control. For this disappointment we reimbursed the complainant $750, for a total refund of $1,000. We believe our $1,000 refund was a generous offer to make amends for the renter's disappointments, both of which were not our fault. Nevertheless, the renter chose to focus solely on these two issues, and ignored all the other benefits and positve aspects of our rental property on the beautiful St. Croix River. It is not our fault that this renter chose not to take occupancy at all, and walked away from her fully paid-up two week rental.

Das ST. Croix River, an der Grenze von Minnesota und Wisconsin, ist ein nationaler Schatz, für immer im Rahmen des National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, verwaltet und von der National Park Service geschützt aufbewahrt. Es ist in erster Linie eine Kanu-Kajak Fluss, plus kleine Außenbordmotorboote und Ponton-Boote. Im Sommer ist der Fluss zu flach für große und schnelle Motorboote und Wasserski und Verwendung von Jet-Skis sind nicht geeignet und werden entmutigt. Der Boden ist sandig und das Schwimmen und Angeln sind groß. Die Wisconsin Seite des Flusses ist Bundeseigentum und ist völlig unterentwickelt, so dass wir sehen, keine Lichter über den Fluss in der Nacht - nur Einsamkeit und Ruhe.
