This private room in the heart of prestigious Cathedral Hill is quiet and sunny—a perfect place to rest in a uniquely decorated Victorian home. You have a private fridge, microwave, coffee maker and tea service, and the room has its own lock. The luxurious bath, kitchen and living room are shared. Grocers, cafes, drugstores, and coffeeshops are close by, as are major highways and downtown Saint Paul. Parking across the street in front of the house is ample and safe.
Besides some beautiful living plants, you have an in-room fridge and microwave. The house has forced-air gas heat and central air conditioning, but you also have a fan as well as control of the temperature in your room. The garden is truly superb, and the neighborhood is the very best for strolls. Walk four blocks to some of the finest restaurants in Saint Paul, or stop at the nearby grocery and deli. It's all close and all convenient.
Your private entrance leads upstairs and through an alarmed side door to our residence. This was the servants' entrance, and people were smaller in the 19th century, so the stairs is narrow and somewhat steep. There's a third floor apartment at the second floor landing with its own locked door. The only spaces that are off limits are the master bedroom and the studio, which is across the hall from your room. Occasionally, a friend or family member may be staying in the studio. We share the bathroom on second floor and the half bath on first floor. There's limited refrigerator space in the kitchen, and you may use the microwave. You have your own fridge and microwave in the room, plus coffee and tea downstairs. Besides coffee and tea, you'll find such things as fruit, granola, biscotti, cookies, butter, jam, and nuts on the kitchen table. It's a changing menu, but you are welcome to whatever is there, which is usually more than enough for a continental breakfast.
You'll be sharing the house with me, a friendly introvert. Occasionally, I may have a friend or family member stay in the studio across the hall from your room. The living room, including media center, and the dining room are usually all yours. I mostly spend time in the kitchen and sunroom. Background music is too distracting for me, so please use headphones. If public radio is too distracting for you, just say so and I'll turn it off.
If you're here more than a week, feel free to use the second floor laundry and to cook light meals in the kitchen.
Please remove shoes inside the house. Smoking is allowed outside only. Quiet is important to the residents, but piano playing is appreciated. If you are watching TV in the living room, please close the pocket door to the hall since sound carries.

I'm a Ph.D. in language and literature who did extensive post-doc work in psychology, taught university level, founded a college counseling center, and wrote several books on writing. If that calls up an image of a hag with her head in a book you've got the wrong woman. My passions are gardening, grandchildrening (yes, it should be a word), art, beekeeping, and homemaking. I put up jars and jars of pickles and jams, indeed I do. The fact is, I bolted from academia long ago and started my own business, teaching writing in corporations all across the country, training trainers, writing books, making videos. My work won national awards. Enough, I say. Time to go dig in the garden and..by the way, nobody leaves this house without a zucchini, pickles, jam, or a jar of honey! Did I mention I have a feeding disorder? Or is it just that I'm a Mediterranean woman?
