About Elizabeth and Rudolf
We've loved and restored this unique duplex over many years. Elizabeth's a Minneapolis native but a St. Paul convert. Rudolf who hails from the Netherlands, loves the city of St. Paul especially its topography with many hills and vistas. It's a great city for walking and exploring.
Elizabeth and Rudolf purchased this House in 1995
Why Elizabeth and Rudolf chose Summit Hill
As avid travelers, we love well-appointed, clean and comfortable hotels and vacation rentals. We hope you'll love ours too! We're perfectly located- one block off of Grand Avenue in the heart of the Summit Hill neighborhood of St. Paul. It's walking or biking distance to a multitude of unique restaurants and shops and less than 10 minutes to downtown St. Paul or a few more to downtown Minneapolis.
What makes this House unique
Location, location, location! Besides that, our guests have loved the peacefulness of the space and the ability to hang out/spread out. Our wall colors were professionally chosen to create a serene environment. From the separate, private entrance with the screened-in front porch to the light-filled, spacious rooms, updated, eat-in kitchen with dishwasher and fridge with water/ice and baths, we invite you to make this your next home away from home when in the Twin Cities.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
A WONDERFUL PLACE TO RELAX AND ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS!
We cannot really express how perfect this place was for our Christmas 2018 week long stay. A wonderful property with plenty of room to relax and hang with the extended Minnesota family! Our gracious hosts provided EVERYTHING we needed -- very complete kitchen, dining area and family room. Very well appointed and decorated everywhere. You will not be disappointed if you pick this place, regardless of season. The proximity to Grand Avenue is a big plus. Easy access to everything whether you have a car or not. We could go on and on, but will stop here, but, really, just rent this place if you need a St. Paul respite!
Thanks so much, Jeff! We really appreciate your fantastic review and we’re so glad you and your family were here to enjoy our Minnesota winter!!
We hope to see you again soon.
We loved our visit! A lovely Victorian home on a quiet tree lined street
We loved our stay and will stay there again when we come to St Paul. Elizabeth was so helpful with orientation, restaurant, site seeing and transportation suggestions... it felt like visiting a fabulous friend. Everything was clean and comfortable and two stories makes the duplex very spacious. From the coffee and chocolates upon arrival to the leaded glass windows that threw afternoon rainbows on the walls, this was a home filled with beautiful details that made us want to return. Thanks so much Elizabeth!
St Paul friendly
Great house with super amenities and convenient location to restaurants shopping and major highways. The hosts were very gracious and welcoming. Highly recommend
Thanks so much! We hope to see you back in St. Paul again.
Wish I could give 6 star rating for this Cozy Historical home in St Paul
Wonderful accommodations for two couples. Great location in a St Paul neighborhood. We walked to a grocery store and other shops and many dining options. Hopeful that we have an opportunity to visit again. Elizabeth was a wonderful host. The 1906 home has been updated with modern kitchen and bathroom so you can enjoy a vintage feel with modern amenities.
Fantastic home in perfect location that absolutely felt like “home away from home!”
This home (and Elizabeth!) is SO delightful. I walked up the steps and into the home and immediately smiled because I knew I had found a gem. Everything you could possibly need is provided for your stay. The house is sparkling clean and very well maintained. It was a pleasure gazing out the windows into the yard and neighborhood as well. I felt so comfortable and welcomed and will definitely look to stay again when I am back in St. Paul. Loved, loved, loved this property, and I have stayed at many VRBOs over the years. This one is a special one!!
Thanks so much for your wonderful review! I return the compliment:)
We were so glad you could stay at our place, hope to see you next time you’re in town!
Comfortable, walkable, enjoyable!
We had a terrific friends getaway weekend here. Elegant and comfortable house in a great, walkable neighborhood. Elizabeth was so helpful in recommending restaurants and things to do, but we also spent time just lounging on the wonderful screened porch or in the comfy living room. Loved having Kowalski’s Market—a five-minute walk—nearby, too. And the bonus: A pure white squirrel, which we saw outside one morning!
It was great having you stay! I’m so glad you enjoyed our place and the Twin Cities -I love both of them and am so super happy to share my favorite places with our guests. I also love our resident white squirrel-he’s good luck, you know?
Thanks again and hope to see you next time!
Welcome to St. Paul! Voted by USA Today as the 'Best Romantic North American Getaway for 2014', you will love exploring our romantic capital city from your perfectly located vacation home. We're located in Summit Hill, a cozy, walkable neighborhood of beautiful historic homes, colleges, restaurants and unique shopping. Your vacation rental is on a picturesque cul-de-sac but just one block off of bustling Grand Avenue, home to many of the best shopping and dining establishments St. Paul has to offer. You can easily spend your time wandering the immediate neighborhood with its shops, restaurants and historic homes but we're also conveniently located close to downtown St. Paul which is a ten minute bus ride or five minutes by car. (It's also a great walking or biking destination: it's down hill but you can always catch the bus to get back home!) Downtown St. Paul is situated on the Mississippi River and has many beautiful historic areas and also great dining,entertainment and a year round Farmer's Market. In the summer months, you can take a tour of the Mississippi on a paddle boat. In the winter, partake in the Winter Carnival's many events or go ice skating outside at Landmark Center. The Xcel Center (Home of the Wild hockey team and concerts) the Landmark Center, the Ordway (Home of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and the Minnesota Opera) are all located downtown. We're also close to many colleges: Macalester, Mitchell Hamline College of Law, St. Thomas, St. Catherine's, Hamline and Concordia are all within a ten minute drive. The University of Minnesota campuses are also easy to get to either via the scenic river road or via the freeway. Freeway access is equally easy: we are 1.1 miles to Interstate 94 and less than a mile to 35E. Our new light rail line running between downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul is close by. There is a bike rental kiosk one block away in front of our closest supermarket, Kowalski's. If you'd like to explore our twin city, Minneapolis, it's also a short drive or bike ride away where you will find more great shopping, the Walker Art Center, The Minneapolis Institute of Arts and the Twins Stadium. The Mall of America is a short 15 minute drive with free parking. We're also close to golf courses, public tennis courts, parks and lakes. Of course, we're also a fantastic stop before or after heading up north to cabin country or the BWCA!
