Great river beauty, so much fun to jump in. Private, quiet, wonderful sleeping. Fun kayaking. The cabin is great but it is rustic. There were mice and a couple of red squirrels in the cabin. So if you are squeamish this might not be the place for you. I thought it was wonderful.
Are you seeking a peaceful place to unplug? This is a beautiful spot on the St. Croix River. Some days it feels like we have the river to ourselves. This quaint place is away from it all but close enough to Marine on St. Croix to grab a coffee, or some groceries or an ice cream. We leveraged the canoe for fishing and brought our own paddleboards. We will be back!
Imagine lying in your bed and looking out at trees shimmering in the morning light and a river rolling by. The only sounds are leaves rustling softly in the wind and birds and squirrels chirping. Imagine having nothing to do all day but sip coffee, paddle a kayak or canoe, read on a screened porch, rustle up a meal. This was our experience at this well-loved, charming cottage. No television, no motor boats, no cars or trucks rushing up the highway. This kind of vacation might not be for everyone, but it was certainly just what the doctor ordered for our family of four. And the family who owns the cottage couldn't be nicer! We also really enjoyed the town of Marine, where we stopped to fill up on WiFi, visited the sweet library, had sublime BLTs at the Landing, and shopped at the little grocery that sells local products. Nearby William O'Brien State Park provided nature trails for our daily hikes (although some of us just sat outside and read all day :) ). A really great find.
Rustic river house.
We were happy with the peace and quiet.
This is a great spot to relax. Quintessential cabin experience. Well supplied and clean. We had everything we needed. Lots to do in the area. The wifi is somewhat spotty, but that helped everyone unplug. Really felt like we were in the woods. Would be great in the fall, too.
Why Kathy chose Scandia
This property was purchased by G. Ingersoll, an avid fly-fisherman and a man of relatively modest means, as a place for his family to spend summers and escape the heat of the city. He acquired it just as logging operations in the St. Croix River Valley were winding down after nearly a hundred years. He built a house in 1912 – the first on the river – which we, his descendants, still spend time in. Eventually, a second house was built nearby – the one included in this listing – and still later, a third house, now owned by cousins, was added on the other side of the dock area. Over the years, the larger property and houses have been the "glue" that keeps a large extended family in close contact, as we all share a love of the river, its wooded banks and bluffs, and the houses themselves, steeped in family history.
