The Cottage House was built by R.G. Blanchard, a carpenter, for $750 in 1873. In 1892 Arthur Underhill, a teamster, owned the property. In 1930 Frank and Gladys Green owned the property. Owens street was named for John P. Owens of St. Paul and the editor of the first newspaper in Minnesota. He Had close connections with several Stillwater speculators, and was a partner to Andrew Randall, the first man to own property in the area of Owens Street. Owens was born in Ohio in 1818, attended college in Cincinnati, and served as a Quartermaster in the Civil War. He was also very active in Whig and Republican policies and wrote a “Political History of Minnesota.”
This cozy, two-bedroom Cottage is perfect for a couples’ romantic getaway or as the ‘R & R’ destination that sleeps four guests. The Cottage at 121 S. Owens Street is a charming, turn-of-the-century bungalow, with a screened porch in front complete with a swing built for two.

Lovely original oak woodwork and floors shine with the care that went into restoring and furnishing this immaculate home.

A country-style dining room, right off the kitchen, seats four comfortably. There is also complimentary Wi-fi and broadband internet for your use.
