Nestled on a hillside in beautiful Stillwater Minnesota, Scenic Overlook Cottage overlooks one of the most beautiful waterways in the Midwest; the St. Croix River. This cottage is attached to a French Normandy-style house and is a very private, ample 1200 square feet. A European immersion experience will enhance this perfect spot for a getaway. This special and memorable home has been highlighted in Better Homes and Gardens. It is a premium property at a preferred location.
It is located within a comfortable 25-minute walk (will soon be on the new Stillwater City path which will follow the river to town). At the bottom of your cottage driveway is Stillwater’s southern scenic overlook . Take your picnic hamper right out your door and enjoy the life this beautiful river has to offer.
Sweeping French doors into a bedroom, a full kitchen and bar, living and dining room area and a bathroom with shower all on one level makes the cottage easily accessible and livable for short stays or an extended stay. There are a lot of great restaurants, sightseeing and activities within easy reach. Bikers Welcome! The owners are friendly, easily reached and offer prompt service. We look forward to meeting you.
Louise and Martin are both European and their home reflects it. Louise is from England while Martin is from Switzerland. As soon as they found this home set high on the hills overlooking the St. Croix River, Martin felt at home. It was reminiscent of his childhood home in Switzerland. Louise took great joy designing and decorating the home in a style similar to her Grandparents farmhouse in Cheshire, England. Better Homes and Gardens took note when they featured the home in their magazine.
Louise Fenner purchased this cottage in 1994
The property is in a preferred location just 8/10 of a mile south of downtown Stillwater. It is an easy drive and just a 25 minute walk. By the end of 2016 it will be on the river walk into town. There has never been a bad review on this property. You will understand when you see the meticulous attention paid to every detail to make it a premier property and a delightful stay.
Thank you for a lovely stay! Comfortable, relaxing, peaceful - just what we needed! You have done a great job decorating and preparing those great "extra's" for travelers. The yard is gorgeous. Stillwater is such a beautiful little town. We loved looking through shops downtown, morning coffee and breakfast at Tin Bins, the Paddleboat cruise and even getting to the Mall of America. Thanks again!
This was our third stay at this beautiful cottage. Each time we returned it was better than we remembered. This place is super clean and it has an amazingly comfortable bed with luxurious sheets. Our hosts Martin and Louise are gracious and welcoming. We are returning next year.
Louise and Martin were wonderful hosts- they checked on us to see if we needed anything, but we had complete privacy at this lovely cottage. I had a small Memorial for my Mom at the house and it worked for us quite well. The cottage was the perfect size and had everything we needed for our stay. The decor and grounds are simple, clean, beautiful, and relaxing. The location is very, very convenient to Main Street downtown- close to the river, restaurants and shopping. We will definitely stay here if we get up to Stillwater again!
*Hugs to you, Louise! Thank you for the personal touch (Alice the Bee) that will continue to make it a special place for me! :)
Lots of property, lovely landscaping and a fire pit! Truly a place we will return to! Can't wait until next year! And the design? Louise is a very talented designer and furnished the cottage perfectly! We will be back!
This was a wonderful stay for my wife and I this winter. It had more than enough space for us to write and work, but felt cozy at the same time. It's clean and put together beautifully. The space was completely remodeled and felt like new. Louise and Martin were the best! Kind and accommodating. Couldn't ask for better hosts.
We had an amazing 2 weeks in May at the Scenic Overlook Cottage. A perfect peaceful place for the 2 of us ...overlooking the St Croix River and nestled in the beautiful expansive garden of cottage owners, Martin and Louise Fenner. This lovely couple are kind, accommodating and so respectful of clients comfort and privacy. A beautiful patio, housing comfy teak furniture was completed during our stay, not yet pictured at cottage entrance. We hope to visit with Martin and Louise in the fall again when returning to Minn. This cottage is a tribute to redesigners Louise and Martin, in a marriage of cozy, country, antique design with convenient, spacious, functional living all on 1 floor, no stairs, for us oldies!!! Home away from home! Thanks for a great stay!
We absolutely loved the Cottage! We intended to spend Christmas vacation visiting friends and family around the Twin Cities and love the Stillwater area, which is why we chose to stay at the Scenic Overlook Cottage. We were amazed at how beautiful the Cottage was, the cottage was everything it promised to be and more! We were even blessed with a white Christmas! What a wonderful place to spend over Christmas!. I know the Scenic Overlook Cottage mustl be even more magical in the Summer. Martin and Louise are wonderful people, we will sure look forward to visiting with them again when we return to Minnesota.
