About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 full & 2 half Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Located on beautiful Irvine Park, the 1889 Ohage mansion is a couple of blocks from the Xcel Center, the Mississippi River, and downtown Saint Paul. This is the place for families, wedding guests, groups of friends, book lovers, foodies, writers, or any type of group!

Leave your car in the driveway and stroll to the X, the Ordway, the Fitzgerald, the Science Museum, The Children's Museum and other venues. Fine and casual dining and the river walk are minutes away.

The mansion has two parlors, a dining room that seats 10, a large kitchen with a commercial stove, a basement bar with pool table, bubble hockey, pinball, and a 50' plasma TV. There are four+ bedrooms. Two bedrooms have queen beds and share a full bath. The third bedroom is a suite with a queen bed in one room and a twin/daybed in the adjoining room. The fourth bedroom has two twin beds. Another full bath is on the bedroom level.

The historic Irvine Park neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Take the self guided Irvine Park walking tour or the hosted tour of the Alexander Ramsey house and eat at historic Forepaugh’s Restaurant. See for yourself what preservation looks like in Saint Paul!

You will find freshly roasted Dunn Brothers coffee and breakfast bars in the kitchen. Enjoy your drinks with delicious ice from the ice maker at the basement wet bar. Leave your hair dryer at home and don't worry about wrinkles; we supply an iron and ironing board.

Should you wish to get in your car, downtown Minneapolis, the Mall of America, and the airport are 10-15 minutes away.

The owners or a caretaker may need to access the third floor office or other areas of the house during your stay. They are available to help you enjoy your visit in historic Saint Paul.

Amazing

Dirk was extremely accommodating. This house was perfect for a larger group. We were able to all sleep comfortably in the home and the basement was perfect for entertaining. Would recommend this home to anyone!

Absolutely breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a girls weekend to celebrate my sisters wedding. The Ohage house had a tremendous part of making the weekend memorable. The home has so much history and charm, not to mention it is impeccably decorated. Dirk and Ruth were so accommodating and truly thought of everything to offer. Most of our time was spent gathered around the giant kitchen island while playing music through the sound system in the house. The beautiful dining room was perfect for games such as cranium and cards which were also available in the house. I cannot fail to mention the basement with a large bar complete with karaoke machine. We did at times, although we never had to leave the house to have a good time! The location is perfect for the St. Paul area. We were a short walk to all the attractions and restaurants downtown. I could go on and on about our experience, but I will say my best advice would be to rent the ohage house and experience it for yourself! We all would love and hope to visit again!

Unforgettable

  • 5 of 5

Our son who lives in the Twin cities, with his girlfriend, was unable to make it back home for Thanksgiving. On a whim, we decided to bring the entire family to Minnesota instead. There was a problem: His tiny kitchen and small apartment were not going to be able to accommodate our family of multiple generations... a family who enjoys hanging out in the kitchen and cooking together. Hotels were not an option. What would Thanksgiving be without a home cooked meal? And then we came across Ohage house. From the minute we entered the front door with expansive hallways, high ceilings, a dramatic staircase, we knew we were in for a treat. Elegant, yet homey. Two separate parlors allowing the comfort of curling up with a great book, or playing board games. A surprise lower level with bar, pool table, pinball games and cozy room for watching television made our grandchildren repeat over and over, "best vacation ever"The large dining room with it's round table, allowed for excellent conversation and plenty of platters of food. . Wonderful second floor with spacious bedrooms and very comfortable beds. The kitchen was amazing and beyond what we would have expected. well stocked with every tool needed to create and complete a wonderful dinner.We walked to the science museum, we played football in the park across the street, but mostly just enjoyed the precious time we were able to spend in this wonderful historic home, catching up with each other and listening to the most amazing play lists of eclectic music our hosts provided through a fantastic sound system through much of the house. The convenience of this location being within walking distance to everything, entertainment, great restaurants. The home itself is spotless and clean. We knew that our hosts were always a phone call away. We all had a hard time leaving this most magical home and would love to see it in summer.

Memories in the mansion on Irving Park

The Mansion on Irving Park was perfect for our family reunion. Easy access via MSP, loved the riverwalk, plenty of room to enjoy the house and garden for all. Thanks for the memories. The Smith Family

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a pleasure to stay in this amazing historic home in such a great neighborhood. Walking every day by the river, enjoying the screened porch and basement while also a short car ride to everything we needed to do. There were 7 of us and it was beyond spacious. Great main street with restaurants and coffee and Cossettas is a must do for food and atmosphere. Dirk was easy to work with and very accommodating. Highly recommend!

Gorgeous home base for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely property. We were in town for a short family getaway. Ages ranged from 18 months to 61 years. We took advantage of the great back yard for Frisbee and playing catch. Enjoyed the screened porch early morning and evening. Skeptical of the round dining table at first but found it worked wonderfully for our group of 9. Lower level game and theater rooms came in handy after the little ones went down for the night. Great amenities and location. We could walk for coffee and pastries early in the morning . Very close to museums. Awesome park across the street. Only things we could have used were crib/pack 'n play and a high chair. Very enjoyable!
