About Lois Johnson

I am a semi-retired interior designer and enjoy all aspects of creating lovely surroundings. I have children and grandchildren in my neighborhood and we all enjoy this area. I enjoy meeting people and I believe I am friendly and easy going.

Lois Johnson purchased this house in 1997

Why Lois Johnson chose Minnesota

I have always enjoyed turn of the century architecture and seeing wonderful structures renovated and brought back to their original grandeur.

What makes this house unique

You will be within walking distance of wonderful shops, fine restaurants, downtown St. Paul, fitness center, coffee shops, bookstores. Strolling down beautiful Summit Avenue (blocks of lovely Victorian homes) is a lovely way to end the day.

What a lovely and welcoming home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely lovely. It is charming, classy and within walking distance of everything you may need. We attended an event at the Xcel Energy Center - a delightful 21 minute walk. The kitchen is supplied with everything you could ever need. Lois is very friendly and gracious. She even mailed us an item we left behind - far above and beyond expectations. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. If we ever find ourselves in St Paul again we will absolutely stay here again.

Charming, well-appointed home

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly as all the reviews describe it. In addition to its charming architecture and decor, Lois thoughtfully provides the small touches many VRBO homes miss - coffee filters, quality towels and pillows, small extras in the kitchen that make it truly useful. Driveway parking is tight as described, but worth it when on-street parking was crowded. Made coming and going a lot easier. We'll be back!

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect Location just off Selby, a couple blocks from the Cathedral. Within walking distance of multiple eating places as well as a great coffee shop. The rental was just as advertised.

Easy access to home on first floor, just a few stairs. Great restaurants less than a block away.

Accomadating owner.

Tight parking and small closets for a longer stay.

Wonderful Rental

  • 5 of 5

The Johnson House was a wonderful rental --- immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, great location, off street parking, well equipped kitchen, owner responsive to our needs and requests. What more could I add? Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Cozy home in walking distance to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This will be my 2nd time staying in this charming Victorian and I plan on coming again. It has everything you need in a beautifully decorated home which shows the owners commitment and love to design and her guests comfort. She has stocked the kitchen with everything you need to cook and entertain if you have friends over. There are 2 bedrooms, but remember the house is Victorian and they didn't believe in large bathrooms nor closets, but it is so charming you barely notice nor care. There also is no bathtub, but you don't need it the shower is perfect. There is also no dishwasher, but you will want to eat out at the restaurants close by. W.A. Frost is around the corner as well as The Red Cow if you want a fantastic burger. When the weather is warmer, she has a delightful deck out back decorated quite lovely and I've enjoyed several evenings outside after class when I'm here in the spring. Of course starting out my week here this November we had warm 60's weather, but by Friday snow came in and the transition to the weather was harsh to this southern lady, but the house was toasty warm inside. You also have a driveway which you can park your car off the street, but know it is very narrow and larger than a mid-sized car will not allow you any room to get out if you pull all the way up in the driveway, but if you stay down by the front door, you'll have plenty of room. The owner is gracious and kind and there for you at any time and I appreciate that so much because I travel alone when I come up to Minnesota. If you want a delightful home away from home with comfort and charm, book this wonderful and classy rental and you, like me, will want to stay here every trip you make to St. Paul.
