Follow the winding drive to our secluded house set in the middle of 20 wooded acres. Relax on the decks, walk the trails on the property or use this as a base for trips to Duluth or up the North Shore. There are two bedrooms on the main floor, each with a queen bed and plenty of dresser space. The first bedroom has a good size closet with built in dresser and place to hang clothes. The second bedroom has a separate exterior door leading to a newly built stamped concrete covered porch. Opposite the bedrooms and heading up the log staircase, you'll find a sitting area with a futon offering an additional full bed (if requested) and access to a second story deck, great for star gazing. There's an open floor plan large kitchen, dining and living area, offering seating for 6. The kitchen has a coffee maker, microwave, toaster oven, dishwasher, fridge w/ice maker, stove/oven and is stocked with all the essential non-food items. Internet is provided, as well as a small collection of DVDs and a TV in the main living area with another upstairs in the futon room. The claw foot tub/shower in the single bathroom is great for soaking/reading. Towels, bedding and throws (for chilly weather) are included. There is an additional shower stall in the utility room, along with the washer and dryer available to guests. Outdoors there's plenty of seating, a fire-pit and a charcoal grill. Wood, charcoal and grilling accessories are provided. There's a covered porch along the north side of the house and a small covered storage area to sit should it rain. Feel free to roam the property, though we'd recommend not trying to enter the small cabin or outhouse since it's likely some of the wildlife have moved in! We continue to expand the walking trails and hope to have a couple of miles meandering through the wooded property.

Why Jack and Gretchen McDaniel chose Duluth
We moved from mid-Michigan to Duluth in 2002 and fell in love with the big pines on this 20 acres. The location is close to Duluth and to all the rivers and trails up the North Shore. We designed and had the house built in the 2005-2006 time frame.

VERY NICE PLACE.
THE HOUSE WAS VERY COMFORTABLE, WELL EQUIPED AND WELL STOCKED. LOCATION WAS CONVENIENT, QUIET AND EASY TO GET TO. WOULD RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE AND WILL PROBABLY STAY HERE AGAIN.
The best home away experience, it will exceed your expectations.
Jack and Gretchen should teach classes on how to properly outfit a Home Away. Their place is spotless, equipped with everything, and labeled so there is no searching for anything. It sits in stunning beauty. If you are reading this and wondering about this place don't. It will exceed your expectations.
Amazing cabin with tons of privacy
We loved everything about the cabin. The owners provide so many amenities, the cabin is equipped with so many things, you barely need to pack anything from home. The cabin itself is immaculate and the grounds are very impressive as well. There's so much privacy and so many places to sit outside to enjoy a sunny afternoon away from the hassles of city life. We will definitely be back!
The home was very, very clean and so well organized. The property is well kept. I loved everything about it. I would stay here again if ever in the Duluth area.
This property is exactly as described and then some. It is beautiful inside and out. The accommodations are well thought out and the house is clean beyond words -- impeccable! The location is central to all areas while being secluded and private, as well. The owners are responsive and helpful.
Very well kept and neat property. Nicely secluded but set up with all basic amenities. Definitely a place we want to come again and maybe check out other seasons in the area.
