Historic 1885 Queen Anne Mansion. Beautiful, spacious Master Bedroom with private bath, featuring tile and stone shower for two. Queen bed, lovely sitting area, working fireplace. Enjoy exquisite stained glass window and stunning woodwork. This is a beautiful space to experience and admire. Adjacent room available, please inquire for details.

The space

The exquisite historic home, built in 1885, includes nine working fireplaces with magnificent mantels, 8 gorgeous stained glass windows, stunning original woodwork and beautiful architectural details. The Dearing Mansion is a splendid place to relax and discover.

Guest access

Guests may enjoy the main floor living room, music parlor with grand piano, reading room, dining room, kitchen, and outdoor deck with downtown views. Sauna also available. Conveniently located 5 minutes from downtown Saint Paul and a 10 minute drive from the airport, Dearing Mansion in West Saint Paul is just over the Smith Avenue High Bridge across the Mississippi River. The neighborhood is friendly and safe. There are beautiful parks and great trails nearby for walking and bicycling. Great coffee shops and bakeries are within walking or driving distance along with antique shops and other shopping 5-10 minutes away by car. Historic Summit Avenue as well as Grand Avenue, known for shopping, fine restaurants and eateries, are just 5 minutes by car. I am happy to provide restaurant and entertainment recommendations. Also close to Xcel Energy Center, Fitzgerald Theatre, local colleges and universities including: Macalester, St. Thomas, St. Kates. Come visit and enjoy. And like many of our guests, come back again!

Interaction with guests

I enjoy interacting with guests and I respect people's privacy. This home has a variety of room options available and as such, operates much like a traditional bed and breakfast with shared common spaces. You may be the sole visitor, or there may be several guests at one time, providing an opportunity to meet a variety of people. The home is quite large with many beautiful spaces for all to enjoy on the main floor. Private bedrooms with either shared or private bath (master bedroom or suite) are located on the 2nd floor. I ask that guests be respectful of each other at Dearing Mansion. Because of the historic nature of the home and the shared aspect, it is well suited for adults (older children may be considered).

An outstanding airbnb in everyway. We were the only guests but our stay at the mansion was too short. It is a place to get lost in and we enjoyed relaxing and the comforts offered. Save time for the sauna. We hope to return next summer w friends!

Great place to stay for work - quiet and comfortable, close to St. Paul via Uber. If you like running the river is super close and nice to run along.

Such a remarkable place -- inside and out. I thought the pictures looked good on-line, but they don't come close to the beauty of walking around this historic gem! All good on the cleanliness, communication and check-in. Will most definitely return!

Wonderful mansion with off street parking and an incredible view. We loved the large room, impressive bath and charming first floor commons. Clean, quiet place to stay and Scott is a perfect host.

The Dearing Mansion is THE BEST place to stay in St. Paul! We only wish we'd had planned for more time here! Sunnie is fantastic to work with - she was so hospitable and really helped us feel right at home! From the incredible home to fully stocked kitchen to fantastic view of downtown St. Paul from the deck to the extremely walkable location - how could it be any better?! We are hoping to come back soon with family in tow - definitely the best place to stay for part of our honeymoon!!

Response from Scott:
Thank you for your very kind words, Morgan! I am so delighted to know that you had a wonderful experience. I only wish the original owner, Sam Dearing, and the architect, Augustus Gauger, could hear your reaction!

We loved staying here! The house itself is very antique and you can tell a lot of love went into restoring it. Great view of the city, $7ish Uber to downtown. Host was super nice, would definitely stay here again!

I am a residential remodeling contractor specializing in older homes. I live in this home part time with my 19 year old son until late August. My 21 year old other son is back from college for the summer also living with me part time. You may or may not see them.
I love sharing a cup of coffee or tea in the kitchen or living room in front of a fire.
The house is truly a treasure. It is one of the most unique homes in St. Paul. The back deck has wonderful views of St. Paul which is a 5 minute drive from Downtown St. Paul. In my spare time I love to travel, sea kayak, and lindyhop swing dance. I'm always game for a canoe trip, a great single malt scotch, a Broadway show, a home improvement project around the house involving hanging any kind of art or a good conversation. As a guest you will be welcomed, given the tour and assisted in any way I can.

Photos of bedroom coming soon.
