About Elizabeth and Rudolf

We've loved and restored this unique duplex over many years. Elizabeth's a Minneapolis native but a St. Paul convert. Rudolf who hails from the Netherlands, loves the city of St. Paul especially its topography with many hills and vistas. It's a great city for walking and exploring.

Elizabeth and Rudolf purchased this house in 1995

Why Elizabeth and Rudolf chose Summit Hill

As avid travelers, we love well-appointed, clean and comfortable hotels and vacation rentals. We hope you'll love ours too! We're perfectly located- one block off of Grand Avenue in the heart of the Summit Hill neighborhood of St. Paul. It's walking or biking distance to a multitude of unique restaurants and shops and less than 10 minutes to downtown St. Paul or a few more to downtown Minneapolis.

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! Besides that, our guests have loved the peacefulness of the space and the ability to hang out/spread out. Our wall colors were professionally chosen to create a serene environment. From the separate, private entrance with the screened-in front porch to the light-filled, spacious rooms, updated, eat-in kitchen with dishwasher and fridge with filtered water/ice and baths, we invite you to make this your next home away from home when in the Twin Cities.

Exceeded my expectations

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house - everything matched the photos, and actually, was even better in person. Super quiet - we slept like lambs. Beautiful home, high quality linens, comfy furniture, high end appliances, I could go on and on. The owner met us there and explained the ins and outs of the house, and provided helpful suggestions for walking routes, restaurants, nearby markets, etc. I will definitely rent this property again. Highly recommend.

St. Paul's Best HomeAway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in this home several times and it's definitely become our favorite place to stay in the Twin Cities. The location couldn't be better with plenty of independent shops, restaurants, and bars in walking distance. The hosts ensure that guests have everything they need in terms of amenities and information about the community. The home itself is spotless and quiet; there's a fully appointed kitchen, comfortable beds; and lots of space to spread out. I actually have mixed feelings about providing such a glowing review because I don't want to compete with others in reserving this spot! We will definitely be returning here.

This property was in a great neighborhood close to restaurants, shops & downtown St. Paul. Only drawback was 4 of us had to share one shower, but a little planning took care of that.

Welcome to St. Paul! Voted by USA Today as the 'Best Romantic North American Getaway for 2014', you will love exploring our romantic capital city from your perfectly located vacation home. We're located in Summit Hill, a cozy, walkable neighborhood of beautiful historic homes, colleges, restaurants and unique shopping. Your vacation rental is on a picturesque cul-de-sac but just one block off of bustling Grand Avenue, home to many of the best shopping and dining establishments St. Paul has to offer. You can easily spend your time wandering the immediate neighborhood with its shops, restaurants and historic homes but we're also conveniently located close to downtown St. Paul which is a ten minute bus ride or five minutes by car. (It's also a great walking or biking destination: it's down hill but you can always catch the bus to get back home!) Downtown St. Paul is situated on the Mississippi River and has many beautiful historic areas and also great dining,entertainment and a year round Farmer's Market. In the summer months, you can take a tour of the Mississippi on a paddle boat. In the winter, partake in the Winter Carnival's many events or go ice skating outside at Landmark Center. The Xcel Center (Home of the Wild hockey team and concerts) the Landmark Center, the Ordway (Home of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and the Minnesota Opera) are all located downtown. We're also close to many colleges: Macalester, Mitchell Hamline College of Law, St. Thomas, St. Catherine's, Hamline and Concordia are all within a ten minute drive. The University of Minnesota campuses are also easy to get to either via the scenic river road or via the freeway. Freeway access is equally easy: we are 1.1 miles to Interstate 94 and less than a mile to 35E. Our new light rail line running between downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul is close by. There is a bike rental kiosk one block away in front of our closest supermarket, Kowalski's. If you'd like to explore our twin city, Minneapolis, it's also a short drive or bike ride away where you will find more great shopping, the Walker Art Center, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Twins Stadium. The Mall of America is a short 15 minute drive with free parking. We're also close to golf courses, public tennis courts, parks and lakes. Of course, we're also a fantastic stop before or after heading up north to cabin country or the BWCA!
