Overview

About the property

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Escape for a week to this Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home, an extremely unique, natural, built-into-the-river-bluff setting on a picturesque 3 acre lot with close to 300' of private river frontage. It can accommodate 4 to 5 people and is located on the Wisconsin bluff, looking over to Stillwater. The location is very private, yet just 1.5 miles south of downtown Stillwater and about 5 miles north of Hudson. It is also just down the road, almost walking distance, from The Valley House banquet and wedding facility, making it a choice event location.

Note: If you were unaware, there is a new bridge project going through the Stillwater area. Here is a link for current status: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/stcroixcrossing/index.html

About JT

We are river loving couple who want to give our guests the not-your-average-hotel opportunity to stay in this cozy and unique setting and share the beauty of nature and the river.

JT purchased this chalet in 2012

Why JT chose Hudson

The unique private natural setting on the bluff, large lot, and the beach below sold us on this 'escape'. It is very close to both Stillwater and Hudson, two delightful river towns.

What makes this chalet unique

The privacy, architectural harmony, and natural beauty is amazing.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the River Escape for 4 days over Super Bowl weekend. The house is amazing and very comfortable. Unfortunately it was too cold to stay outdoors for too long but you can tell that it would be a great place to visit in warmer weather. I highly recommend this property.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home for girls weekend. We loved the character this home has! The mature trees make the for a private setting. You can see the river from almost every room in the house. We did find a few bugs, mostly in the master bedroom and bathroom. Nothing a exterminator cant fix. We were asked to strip our own beds and take out the trash before we left, which we did. The reason you leave home for a weekend is to not have to do that stuff. It wasn't that big of a deal, just took the fun out of staying some place to relax. I would not hesitate to stay again. The charm and the character this home has, makes it easy to over look any negative things.

Charming!

We loved the architecture and the tree-top views. The home is well cared for, well-stocked and very clean. We felt right at home.

Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Lovely place that was exactly what we needed. We are very grateful that we were able to stay in such a beautiful home close to our friend's wedding. It almost feels like you are in a treehouse from inside. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area!

Location

This is a truly unique, modern, yet natural setting that is difficult to describe, but somewhere between a chalet and tree house with multi-tier decks and patios will get you close. The property is about 3 acres with approximately 300' of private water frontage on a very wide area of the St. Croix River. The beach lies down the steep sandy bluff. Although the property has private water front, the house sits in a private cove at the top of a steep, sandy, treed hill. We hike up and down a rustic marked path, but it is about 350' of hill and is a short, but strenuous hike. It is only accessible for the fit and adventurous and boots and gloves are recommended.

Please Note: This is just south of Stillwater, but on the other side of the lift bridge.
