About Jeremy & Trish

Jeremy & Trish Paggen

Jeremy & Trish purchased this house in 2011

Why Jeremy & Trish chose Duluth

We began making regular visits to Duluth only a few years ago and fell in love with the city immediately. We knew right away that we would need to own our own home here and plan to eventually live here year-round. This is one of the most beautiful port cities, rich in art and culture. We feel a million miles away from home whenever we are here!

What makes this house unique

Everything about Duluth is unique. The year round tourism makes this city come alive! Just step out onto lake walk in the early morning and you will never want to leave.

Three Sisters and thier families going to a Wedding

This home was beyond our expectations. The furniture and decor fit into the home so that your feel as if your were living in the early 1900 yet having the conveniences of the present day. After the second night we felt at home. Getting up and eating breakfast together, going for walks, or just hanging out together and playing Clue. So much room, so beautiful. The locations is 3 blocks from the major walking path around Lake Superior.

A few notes

  • 3 of 5
Overall the stay was pleasant. Some things to know that aren't in the description...

- The wifi only works in half of the house
- The stairs on the front porch are new but the last step is not the same height as the others and is a hazard
- Upstairs bathtub doesn't work and they didn't tell us ahead of time
- Owners live upstairs on private third floor
- Lattice under front porch is broken/missing and looks dilapidated
- The home doesn't really get much natural light because of trees, lots of walls, and permanent window coverings

If you are into historic homes with character this is good bet, but some aspects of the place seem a little run down or in disrepair.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review.
We will have to check on the Wi-Fi connection throughout the house as this is the first time that we have had anyone with issues...thank you for brining it to our attention.
The bathroom has been repaired. It was an untimely, unfortunate event that the bathtub should get a leaky pipe.
The third level in the home is reserved for the owners as their vacation residence as mentioned in the pre-vacation email that is sent out prior to your stay with important information about the home and your time with us.
The home was purchased 3 years ago. Our first couple of years have been focused on the interior of the home and maintaining the originality and integrity of the home. The busy "tourist" time makes it difficult to fit in a lot of the exterior upgrades that we are making and would like to make. Fortunately, as we enter the "off-season" we are able to focus on other areas of the property.

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5
We had a couples getaway with 3 other couples from South Dakota and Minnesota. The house was perfect for us. The weather was so beautiful that we spent most of the time relaxing and catching up on the front porch. (The only suggestion the guys have is to trim the bushes in front of the porch). The house was very spacious and close to everything, even close enough to walk down to Lake Superior. Thanks Trish & Jeremy!

Repairs made

  • 5 of 5
Sine Elizabeth was here in June, the front porch steps have been replaced, the railing is secure, and ample toilet paper was available. The dishwasher works well although the door is tricky to latch. My stay has been very comfortable and pleasant. The house is walking distance to the Leif Erikson park and a grocery.

Overall, a very nice property

  • 4 of 5
Overall, this is a lovely property with plenty of room. It was so nice to find a home with enough bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone. There were a few maintenance issues that need to be addressed. The most serious issue is the condition of the porch steps which are soft with rotting wood, as well as the railing which is completely loose. There was a lack of toilet paper in the bathrooms, the dishwasher did not work well, and the towel service was pretty skimpy. One of the dark colored washcloths had bright red stains, which looked to be from fingernail polish or something similar. Not something you would expect to find in a vacation rental. Don't get me wrong - overall this was a very nice property, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Just be aware that there are some issue with the maintenance of the property.

You are invited to experience a return to Victorian Duluth at the Historic A. Charles Weiss Home. This 1895 Victorian Colonial is filled with classic decor throughout and heavily adorned with woodwork. The A. Charles Weiss is a stately Victorian inn located in Duluth, Minnesota. The Lakewalk, which leads to the charming Canal Park Area, is a short three blocks from the Inn's front porch.

Duluth is a vibrant city set on the shores of Lake Superior. Home to a busy port and wealth of industry because of its location on the lake, Duluth is also a popular vacation destination. There are beautiful scenery and loads of activities to keep everyone in the family entertained.

Lake Superior is the natural attraction of Duluth. There are many cruises that run throughout the year. You can enjoy lunch, dinner or just sundowners as you enjoy the view. The Edge is a giant Polynesian-themed water park filled with thrilling waterslides and loads of splashy entertainment that even older and adult kids will enjoy. The Timber Twister is unique rollercoaster ride that runs through the forest. Sharp hairpin bends and a 3,200-foot descent down the mountain make it a thrilling ride.

Lake Superior Zoo is set on 16 acres of rocky hills covered with tall pine trees. The Kingsbury Creek runs through the zoo, creating a wonderful natural environment in which to view the bears, lions and wide variety of animals. The Great Lakes Aquarium can be found on Duluth's waterfront. This incredible hands-on discovery center allows visitors insight into the underwater realm of the lakes. Daily shows have divers interacting and feeding fish in a giant water tank. There are more than 70 different species of fish, amphibians, mammals and birds housed at the aquarium.

Duluth has a rich cultural heritage and there are many museums, historic homes and estates that are open for public viewing. Historic railway tours make for a fun excursion for the whole family. Learn about the early pioneers, the history of the region, and enjoy the spectacular scenery. There is also an opportunity to spot birds and wildlife in the forest.

In the wintertime, the Spirit Mountain Recreation Area has 22 ski runs, a super pipe for snowboarders, and 22 miles of cross country skiing. A perfect place for both beginner and advanced skiers, the ski runs and lifts are well maintained and the resort is said to have some of the best skiing of the region.
