About Dave Fazendin

I grew up in Stillwater and graduated 1976. I now live nearby the cabin. If you see a red pickup with a black lab sticking out the window that's me!!

Dave Fazendin purchased this house in 2005

Why Dave Fazendin chose Stillwater

Grant City is a small rural community just northwest of Stillwater about 8 miles. It has one of the largest horse populations per capita in the U.S. If you like to bike, hike, or horse back ride. The Gateway Trail has a paved and gravel trail that is less than a mile from the property, it goes from Stillwater to St Paul.

What makes this house unique

When cutting grass or doing maintenance on the cabin when there are no guest, I will always take a break on the front porch and watch the birds, turkeys, deer, and of course the squirrels. In the winter it is like a wonderland after a snow fall. All the trees are covered with snow and there is just a silence in the air.

Better than expected

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a week at this rental home in July 2007. It was the best home rental we have rented yet. We have a 2 year old and a 5 year old. Both boys loved the swing set and sand box. The home had additional fun stuff that wasn't mentioned. There were games, books and movies. The basement had a foos ball table, 2 stand up arcade games along with many other toys.

While this is a rural location it was only about a 10-15 minute drive to downtown Stillwater. The rural location made for lots of wildlife. The owners had several bird feeders and a big block of food that the deer would come and eat off every morning. We saw many different kinds of birds. Cardinals, Oreal's, Canarys, Finches and many others I have never seen. We also saw 3 families of wild turkeys that would wander through the property each afternoon. There were also many fruit trees that had lots of ripening fruit. Basically, I did not feel like I was staying in a rental home but more like a home that was clean, well stocked and well cared for.

Thanks for listing this home for rent. Next time I come to Minnesota I will definitely be wanting to stay again.

Perfect girlfriend getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

Just had the best long weekend here. The space was perfect for our college roommate reunion. The kitchen was well stocked, we had enough room to sleep all 7 of us comfortably and the living room/dining space was a great gathering area. We ended up with 2 major snowfalls during our time. It made the landscape just stunning. We went snowshoeing and skiing at William O'Brien State Park and on the Gateway Trail - both really close to the cabin. The best part might have been the service provided by cabin owner, Dave. He not only plowed and shoveled us out both times, but he even cleaned off our cars and helped one of us get unstuck. It was above and beyond and Dave did it all with a smile. Minnesota nice at its finest. We were so grateful. Can't recommend this cozy cabin enough.

Our home away from home for the Ryder Cup!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I as well as brother and sister-in-law stayed here for the week of the infamous Ryder Cup. The cabin met all our expectations. The deer, wild turkeys and birds were an added attraction. The house was very well equipped and Dave, the owner, was very responsive to our needs. We even had a brand new gas grill for our enjoyment. Our grandchildren came and spent the weekend with us and were thrilled with all the games, toys, and especially the foosball table!

We are moving to Minnesota and the town of Stillwater is now on our list of maybes!

Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

Excellent home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed just a couple of days, but it was a wonderul stay! Everything was very clean, cozy and quiet. The wildlife in the back yard was a sight to behold. The entire house is well-stocked and everything worked well. It was just a short drive to Stillwater and 36 and had wonderful tracks for running nearby. We came to this rental very short notice (maybe a day?) and still everything was clean and welcoming. Thanks a lot!

Cozy and Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful! The basement with all the toys, puzzles, and games was great for little and big kids alike. Christmas decorations were tasteful and festive! Nothing fancy about this cabin, but absolutely perfect for spending the week with family, cooking and enjoying the holidays! In the woods off a dirt road (1/2 mile or so?), but easy access to town. It was perfect! Thanks for a wonderful Christmas!
