East Hillside House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)

Nice little two story turn of the century house in the Central Hillside area, 8 blocks up the hill from Fitger's and the Canal Park area. 10 minutes from Spirit Mountain ski area. Big yard with picnic table & wood fire pit. HDTV with Blu-Ray player, iPod/mp3 hookup on sound system. This is not a luxury property, but if you're looking for a nice, clean house to use as your own, at a decent price, look no further.

review of the house

  • 4 of 5

2 people, We liked the place it was centered fairly decent for where we wanted to go. We wanted to visit the lakefront and that was a straight shot even with the construction. The house had everything we wanted. The only thing was that the bed was a little firmer than we preferred.

Reliable

  • 4 of 5

House was found as presented on listing, tidy and clean overall. (But I did find plenty of crumbs in the toe-kicks under cabinetry when sweeping the kitchen the morning after our arrival...and we hadn't eaten in the kitchen yet.) As previously mentioned, the location is great and your in-house music entertainment potential is awesome. Here are things I'd offer for consideration:

1. There is an additional charge per person, per night. So this can add substantial cost to your stay if you're looking to fill all the beds, which might become comparable with the popular hotels/suites in Canal Park. I did not catch this until after booking.

2. The stairs are steep, classic for this house's age. And the only bathroom in the house is upstairs. While the bathroom location is convenient at night, the flight of stairs was not so convenient for my mother and her arthritic knees. And the painted floor treads are a bit slick, so take it slow if traveling in your stockings. Toddlers might be more likely to take a tumble too.

3. Creeky floors -- again, this is common for a house of this age.

Beautiful home - perfect for your stay in Duluth

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect. Very spacious, clean, and made us feel at home in Duluth. We had a car with easy street parking, but it is a short walk to the downtown area. The kitchen had all the necessities. The owner, Dave, was communicative and responsive. It is a corner lot, so the yard is nice and big. If you want a relaxing stay in a vintage/historic home, we would recommend staying here. We would absolutely stay here again!

Vintage charm, good location

  • 4 of 5

Nice, well located vintage house in central Duluth with lots of positive character. Duluth is a good location for a combination of access to city amenities plus the close by Lake Superior North Shore. Great view of Lake Superior from one of the bedrooms. The neighborhood seems quiet and safe. The owner Dave has an extensive, eclectic CD collection for guests to enjoy. Although we knew when initially renting that the house does not have WiFi, it would be a positive addition. A really good choice for a place to stay in in Duluth.

Blue house review

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our time in Duluth, in spite of the weather. The weekend was on the cool side; rainy and gray. My sisters and I enjoyed the use of three beds. There are three of us and we have never had the luxury of a bed/person. Not even when we were growing up. The house had a lovely view of Lake Superior from the upstairs level. One small bathroom between three women was a bit of a challenge. The lovely shower head made up for this minor inconvenience.

One area that we thought could be improved upon was the lack of WiFi. This was not a hardship for myself, but then I am the oldest sister and tend to rely less on the internet, Facebook etc. We will recommend the 'Blue House' to our friends seeking a place to stay at in the Duluth area!
