Love the view

  • 5 of 5

This house was a wonderful find for our girls weekend in Duluth. It was very comfortable and accommodated our group nicely. The house has everything you could think of to make for an easy stay. The views were spectacular. The sunroom was especially nice for enjoying coffee and views of Canal Park and the lake or the evening stars. It was very clean and well kept. It was close to town and taxi's were easy to arrange. I would highly recommend this property to anyone going to Duluth and I would gladly stay there again myself. I hope to return again to this wonderful house and enjoy more of Duluth.

Perfect place for our get together!!

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be exactly what we needed! The house had great accommodations, even down to the very small details. The owner told us that "all we had to supply was our food" and boy was he ever right! The views from the property were equally as grand! So glad we found this house. If we are ever back in Duluth we will be renting this house. A big thank you to the owners for providing a great place to stay during our time in Duluth!!

Couldn't have asked for a better stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for a long weekend stay - it made us wish we could stay even longer! Very well kept, clean, and had all the necessities. They even thought of things that most hotels wouldn't - fans in every bedroom, drinking cups in the bathrooms, extra blankets in case it was cold, etc. I would definitely recommend this rental. It was in a very convenient location - overlooking the harbor up on the hill, and only a few minutes from downtown (1.9 miles from Canal Park). We will definitely be back!

Great place! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay there very much!

We had a group from Maryland, New York State, the San Francisco Bay Area, Nebraska, and South Dakota for a family wedding. We would definitely stay there again.

The view from the front bedroom is especially nice.

They could improve the heating system - the house felt cold unless the heat was set at 75.

They also need a mirror in each bedroom - This would make it easier for a large group to get ready for a wedding celebration.

A Perfect Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

This home was PERFECT for our family to come back home for a family reunion.

Our three sons and three grandchildren/9 total with one 5 month old felt right at home from the moment we arrived.

The views of Lake Surperior were beautiful and the front Sun room was perfect for my morning coffee and have a bit of quiet time before the day started.

The bedroom on the lower leve ( just off the kitchen) had a sitting room, small TV and bathroom..Almost like a seperate little apartment which was perfect for our son/daughter-in-law and 5 month old baby.

The home was VERY clean, VERY tidy and a fan in every room~Thank goodness~

Decor was a bit old but comfortable. No basic cable, which was somewhat of downer, but loads of VCR tapes.

The location could not have been better. Very nice/clean neighborhood. Beautiful back yard and well kept.

We were within 8 minutes, even in rush hour, of any location. Off street parking was a big plus.

We have large extented families and were able to entertain both sides with ease.

Kitchen was well stocked, plates/glass ware/pots, pans etc.....

We were all very pleased and would rent this home again.
