Nancy and David Eike's Stillwater home

The house, built by Creative Homes, is approximately four miles northwest of downtown Stillwater but has a very real “in the country” vibe on almost six acres with great views of nearby woods, prairie grasses and the occasional wildlife.

Last fall, artists and art lovers gathered at the historic Stillwater riverfront for this juried event that’s been celebrated for over 30 years. Artwork on display included custom made jewelry, hand-thrown pottery, blown glass, paintings, photography, fiber art, woodworking and much more.
