Great Space for Eight

  • 4 of 5

Four of us couples stayed in this charming home over the past weekend. It is a very clean home with comfortable beds and quality sheets. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a crock pot! The living room is big enough for everyone to hang out, visit, and play games. We found the Uber service in the area very easy to use. Chad, the owner of this property, is very pleasant and easy to work with. We would certainly stay here again. Thank you, Chad and Connie. The Kabbage Patch Kids

Great view / Convenient Location

  • 4 of 5

This home was very tidy and had ample space to fit all of our guests. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and utensils. The location was very convenient as we had to go back and forth to the DECC several times over the two days we stayed there. My only hesitation was the "speed bump" snowbank that we had to drive over to get into the driveway and the steep stairs with salt on them. I can't complain too much as I know very well that we live in Minnesota and the elements are always an issue;)

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!
