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 accessible to answer questions or take care of your stay.

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, and Catherdral Hill is a lovely example of that. This property is easily accessible to freeways, , light rail, metro bus service, etc. I believe you will enjoy all the condo has to offer.

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.

Access to Intetstate 94 (3 blocks) or a 20 minute walk to our new light rail is easy and quick.

lovely condo - gorgeous backyrd

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay - beautiful condo, very well kept up. Close to Cathedral, and to Macalester. The backyard is gorgeous. We had a warm weekend, and sat out on the lovely grapevine covered deck each morning for coffee, and early evening to relax before dinner. Only limitation is small sized bedrooms -the beds are comfortable and roomy, but not much room to walk around beds. Overall it was a lovely place to stay.

Beautiful condo, great location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a month (March 2017) at Lois' condo in St. Paul. It is beautifully decorated, has lots of living space, a fabulous sunroom with a outside deck that would be perfect with warmer weather. The bedrooms are both small but adequate. The bathroom has all been updated. We were able to use the laundry facilities in the basement. Lois was kind enough to allow us to bring our small, old dog Maisy Pearl. This condo is close to lots of great restaurants and the bus is available 1 block away that goes right to downtown . Definitely I would recommend this condo.It is truly charming.

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!
