Great place to relax after a long day. Quiet, scenic, and comfortable. Accomodations were great and location was very convenient. Lots of extra blankets, DVDs, and games too! Hosts were very accomodating and focused on making sure we were comfortable. Overall, a great stay! Thanks!!

This was an amazing place to stay, hosted by awesome people. I would most definitely stay here again. While not within walking distance of much, it is well within driving distance of everything you could imagine. Bars 5 minutes, walmart 10 minutes, and all other shopping well within 15. Thank you so much for the stay and we hope to return some day!!

This place is awesome. It's clean and quite. The space is big. The environment is beautiful. The only downside is that there is a smell of sulfur in the water

Response from Alan:
Sorry to hear about your experience with our water. We checked everything out after your review and had the water tested. We cannot seem to identify the odor you experienced. Our best guess is that perhaps you experienced some water when it was being cycled through the water softener. Our sincere apologies!

The house was even better in person than in the photos! Check in was simple and the house was well stocked and clean! We stayed with two small children (1 and 4). The house had a high chair, pack n' play, and a closet full of toys which was a pleasant unexpected surprise. We will definitely be staying there again the next time we visit MN!

Alan's place was just what we were looking for. Close to all the places we wanted to visit but, far enough away for peace and quiet. If ever back in the St Paul area I will most definitely stay at Alan's again.

My empty-nester wife and I enjoy travel, cultures, experiences and conversations with people. When visiting places we want to get out and gather local memories. Eating a mango from a plantation in the D.R., finding a feisty tarantula on a jungle walk in Belize, having a camel "hack a loogie" just inches from my face in the Sahara, building a house in an impoverished Mexican village, visiting a farm house in far western China, waking up to howling monkeys in a Costa Rican tree house, eating goat for Christmas in a small town in Spain, having a Mauritanian youth tell us a ghost story by firelight of a creature that lives in tree tops and feasts on white man's muscle, eating squirrel stew in Louisiana, hugging a shark in the Caribbean, . . .

Now that we have so many rooms with no kids to fill them with, we decided it was time to bring in more people and express our hospitality. Perhaps in the process gather some more stories.

I've learned that everyone has a story to tell. When I take the time to listen, my compassion deepens, my appreciation expands, my fears dissipate and my prayers change.

We'd like to extend a sincere invitation to anyone who wants to stay in our home for a visit. Kick back. Enjoy an evening by the fire. Do some writing. Swing in the hammock. Watch a movie. Wonder at the wildlife. Forget the world and its stresses exist for a bit and unwind.

Hope to see you soon!
