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. 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 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).

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!

City bus a block away. Easy driving distance to downtown Saint Paul and other local destinations. Airport just 10 minutes away.

Please come visit this extraordinary home. Shared kitchen available as well as the many beautiful, restored rooms. Sauna in basement.

The house is beautiful, very well taken care of. The host wasn't there, but was in contact with us via email. There were very detailed instructions on everything, I only stayed one evening, but I wish I could have stayed longer. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a lovely time staying here! Unfortunately we were only there for one night and didn't get a chance to enjoy it quite as fully as we would have liked. It's a gorgeous house and it felt like we were allowed to stay overnight in a museum! The kitchen and the porch were my favorite parts, but I'm a sucker for a good porch. :)

Scott User ProfileScott is a superhost.

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.
