About Mary Rust

I have been a landlord for over 25 years.

Used vrbo myself and thought what a great idea.

Amazing! Fun! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in Duluth was everything we could ask for! It was spacious, comfortable, clean, well equipped and in a great location! The view is spectacular as it is up on a hill overlooking Lake Superior. The location was perfect as it was close to everything in downtown Duluth! And the owner, Mary, is wonderful! We had such a great time talking to her! She gave us great tips about the area and was there to answer all our questions and address any needs. You can't go wrong with the great apartment! I would absolutely stay here again!!!

The apartment was great. The owner had left a map of the city for us, with an X by where we were located. She was always available when we had questions. That was extremely helpful. The only issue that I had was that the couch is very low. I have artificial hips and getting up was difficult, but the view and the City of Duluth made it all worth while. I would do it again, in a heartbeat.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I spent a long weekend exploring Duluth and we were both very pleased with our stay at Mary's place. The view from the main room was incredible. There was plenty of space for the two of us. The kitchen was stocked with normal eating/cooking utensils. Upon arrival, we noticed we couldn't locate a wine key, however, Mary found one and brought it to us right away! I would definitely stay at this little gem again when I'm back in Duluth!

Immaculate apartment with out standing view

  • 5 of 5

This place is a great deal in a wonderful location. The owner, Mary, is very attentive, available and helpful. We loved the beautiful view and it's the cleanest place you'll find, especially given the antique fixtures in the bathroom. It's quaint but very comfy with quick wi-fi too. It would be great for families and couples a like. Stay here and you'll have a great time in Duluth and surrounding area.

Perfect Place to Stay in Duluth

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for great rental. It was a perfect place for me and the dogs for our week trip to Duluth. I love the apartment with it's charm and fantastic views of the Lake - especially from the deck. You said "Wow view" and you weren't kidding. We'll definitely be back as this has become our place to stay in Duluth. Thanks again!

A Wonderful City / Harbor View

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Duluth Minnesota was great. The pleasure of our stay was increased because we selected this property to rent. The views are wonderful both DAY and NIGHT... The city lights at night are dazzling! We even watched the boats commng in and out of the harbor from the deck!

Property was spotless and very well-maintained. Pictures accurately reflect this property.

Owner helpful with local information and fun things to do. Also had lots of suggestions for a fun filled day.

I will stay at this property everytime I come to Duluth.

Thank You sooo much for a wonderful stay in Duluth!
