Great place to stay for active people

The house was very clean, with lots of extras if you forget something. This is a totally different experience than staying in a condo. You have to make your own fun, which was great. There is river rafting, horseback riding and great biking within an hours drive. We biked the Hiawatha trail for the 2nd time, an incredible experience. Hint: Take some air out of your tires first-easier ride on the gravel trail. Gloves would also be handy for the cold tunnels. We rafted with Montanariverguides outside Superior. It took about 1 1/2 hours to drive there and were very happy with them. We have rafted with others in the area and find this company to be the best. The biking trial that runs through Wallace is alot of fun and very easy. The area surrounding the house is a little run down, but the people are very friendly. Be prepared for all the cleaning at the end. All the bedding needs to be washed and beds remade, floors vacuumed and mopped. It makes it impossible to leave first thing in the morning, unless you sleep on the floor. I would still stay there again, but maybe ask to pay more for the cleaning deposit. That would give us more flexibility and keep the vacation fun to the very end. The owners are very easy to deal with and gave us contact numbers in case of any problems. The town is full of antique shops, which are fun to browse. We drove through Kellogg, which wasn't nearly as historic. We are so glad that we stayed in Wallace. Kellogg isn't nearly as quaint and has alot more commercial activity. The stairs are rather steep that lead to the bedroom and basement. They do have hand rails and new carpeting, but people with leg problems may find them difficult. Parking is on the street, so everything must be carried up the stairs. It worked out okay for us, as we are all in pretty good shape. It was my husband and I with our 13 and 15 year old girls. We all had a great time!

Owner's Response: Whoops. The clean-up list was meant as a guideline for our housekeeper, not our renters! It's wonderful if you leave the house looking nice, but the cleaning fee does cover vacuuming, mopping, making up the beds, etc. I'll be sure to clarify that at the house. Thanks.
