Don’t be fooled by the size of this house: it’s really spacious inside! Located near Historic Stillwater, the house has three bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and an outdoor patio with a fire pit. Originally, the house was built in 1890 but was preserved and restored in 2004 to the charming haven it is today. Though it has been upgraded, the old charm remains. Guests are also welcome to bring their pets along but must take note that the host’s Golden Retriever may be a regular presence when they’re around!

Fondly named “The Downtown” for its location in downtown Stillwater, this apartment is located above an art studio owned by the host so it won’t be difficult to find. The interiors are simple yet maintain a cozy ambiance. The location is also a plus since many of the restaurants, bars, and shops are within walking distance. The lift bridge by the river is also within the vicinity so accessibility won’t be a problem.

The former 19th-century home now sits as a charming cottage welcoming its guests to Stillwater. The house is perfect for families or big groups because of the amount of space it has. There are three bedrooms with plenty of room for a big group to snuggle in. The highlight however would probably be the backyard with its lovely sun terrace, beautiful gardens, and a front-row view of the river. It’s the best place in the house to hang out with your family and friends during your stay.
