About Bruce Barron
Over the years we have enjoyed our vocations (financial planning and technology) while building a passion for real estate. We held a portfolio of rental houses and duplexes for a number of years and then chose to renovate most of them for resale to homeowners at affordable prices. Yes we caught the "fix it up right" bug. Today we see that more and more travelers are seeking quality accommodations with the comforts of a home stay.
Bruce Barron purchased this House in 2017
Why Bruce Barron chose Superior
The Twin Ports area of Duluth and Superior has so many activities from summer through winter that you can't take it all in with one day or one stay. We found this home and fell in love with it right away. It was a family home we are told where the first owners who built the house passed it along to one of their children. Eventually a new family found it but was transferred from the area. The house was just built solidly but..... you know 1905 was a long time ago. We updated some of the floor plan adding today's amenities and flair. But we loved the woodwork. We will do "round 2" of window replacement this fall. It's just a great warm home.
What makes this House unique
The front porch is to die for whether grabbing a morning coffee or an afternoon wine. Maybe you want to sit for the evening in a quiet neighborhood and just relax alone or together. Or how about discovering the upper sleeping porch now sporting its own radiator. Its a great sport to curl up with a book. The lower level (watch your head on the stairs! 1905 you know) is all new with a dry bar, office nook, and TV space. The house has many smart home features for your enjoyment and security. Stream your Netflix and Hulu with the Smart TVs and high speed internet. Keyless coded entry makes entry easy.

A great stay!
The property was charming and the property manager did an awesome job communicating when a logistical challenge popped up. Lodging in the Duluth / Superior area can be difficult to find... I totally recommend this property as an alternative to a hotel (esp id you need a little extra space).
The house was beautiful.
When we arrived the refrigerator and microwave was dirty. My niece had to do alot of cleaning. We had to call for more toliet paper. The tables could have been a little cleaner. The house was beautiful.
We were not happy about the monitor system. They never told us about it. Isn't it against the law to be looking at people in there bedrooms?
Kathleen called to tell that she wanted additional cleaning of the micro and refrigerator. Our host was immediately dispatched. Addition paper supplies were stocked in the house. The security cameras that cover the front and back doors are public spaces in the home and are prominently disclosed in our listing and the guest book. There are NO cameras in private areas. We respect our guests privacy. We installed a security system for guest operation to give them and their belongings added comfort and safety while they travel
We arrived late evening, and departed before dawn, but our long weekend at Amelia House was awesome! Perfect location for a family vacation; a sort-of pilgrimage to Grandpa's home town. The house was spotlessly clean, well-equipped with many amenities, and roomy enough for six. Our favorite part was relaxing on the front porch with coffee in the mornings, and libations in the evenings. Superior offers SO MUCH to do! Go to the Bong Museum first, and talk with whoever is at the tourist counter for terrific information and suggestions. We hope to return again sometime, and would absolutely stay here again!
Great house and location for our family to stay for our son's graduation from UMD
The house was very clean and well appointed. The front porch was our favorite spot. Neighborhood was nice with sidewalks. It was a quick drive to Canal Park - with half the cost of staying there.
Thanks for being such wonderful guests!
Very nice place!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Our vacation was absolutely the best, we came after the storm with our daughter and two grandchildren that had never seen the lake before. The weather ended up so beautiful and we were able to see so many ships coming in including the first salty of the year. The home was everything that was advertised, so beautiful and comfortable. The beds were amazing, so comfortable and provided a great nights rest after being out and about all day. So looking forward to getting back up for another great time. Thank you 😊. Mary
