Duluth House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom with whirlpool tub, sleeps 7

We have a beautifully renovated three bedroom home with all new furniture, carpeting and refinished hardwood floors. It is decorated in earth tones to add to the relaxing setting that the local area brings. Two of the bedrooms have queen sized beds and the third has a bunk bed - double bed on the bottom and a single on the top. The pictures that adorn the walls are watercolor prints of scenes from the Duluth area painted by a local artist. The kitchen is stocked with all the appliances and utensils you will need to feel right at home, including a pizza oven and waffle maker. The diningroom table seats 8, plus the breakfast counter seats two more. There is a washer and dryer for your convenience. To really warm up after a day on the ski hill, there is a sauna that seats 3-4 comfortably. For those with a little more energy, a stationary bike and eliptical are available for use. There is a gas grill ready and waiting for your choice of entree. The 50 inch TV and DVDs are great!

On-Site Activities: If you are looking to relax together as a group, a table has been set up with a variety of ceramic pieces available to paint. There are plenty of items and colors to pick from along with brushes and sealer to finish the project.

Need to check your e-mail, but don't want to haul your computer with? A computer is available with access to the internet, along with some games for relaxation. If you need to bring your own computer, there is wireless internet available to serve your needs.

There is also an X-box with plenty of games to pick from.

Very cozy and exceptionally clean!

  • 5 of 5

Visited Duluth for a weekend of skiing at Spirit Mountain with our daughter and her family. This home is definitely a home away from home with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Ski hill is a two minute drive away to a very nice chalet located at the bottom of the hill. We will definitely be back! Thank you Nancy!

10 Industrial Ave. Duluth,MN

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome. It was beautifully decorated and provided all the comfort of home with everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The nice thing was is that all the bedding, towels, pots, pans, grill, and all the appliances (don't forget the washer and dryer) are there to move in and use for the course of your stay. The pictures of Nancy's rental house say it all -beautiful,clean, and cozy.

Awesome Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for our summer vacation this year and what a great place to stay! I usually do not take the time to write a review but this was above our expectations- When we arrived the house was spotless and beautiful just like the photo's. The yard is large enough to play games and it has a patio with a gas grill and a gazebo which we used a lot since it was hot the week we were there. Parking was plentiful as we had a large boat & truck and 3 other vehicles.

Nancy is awesome to work with- very accommodating all week! I guess another reason we liked it so much were all the "little extra's" like several movies we could watch- all the cooking utensils we needed- in the bathroom cupboard there was lotions, shampoo, blow dryer, plenty of towels. We had a washer and dryer in the basement with work out equipment, sauna and a table with ceramics we could have painted had we had time- We were only 10 minutes away from canal park and less than 5 minutes from Spirit Mountain and the Superior Zoo. We found a place to launch out boat off of Garfield Ave which is public and no fee. One last thing to note, we walked in the mornings and was able to get on the Munger trail just a few minutes from the house. The marina where they used to build ships is just a few minutes away to- Like I said GREAT PLACE TO STAY!!

Owner's Response: It is very nice to hear that you were so pleased with the accommodations. We work very hard at making sure the house is in tip top shape for our guests and so we appreciate the positive feedback. We just finished the patio and gazebo and were pretty happy with the way it turned out. I’m glad you had a chance to enjoy it. With so many things to do in Duluth, it is great to have a place to come home to and just relax. I look forward to seeing you again in the future. Thanks for staying at our vacation home.

Fabulous home, perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

That one word pretty much sums up our stay at this vacation rental. . .FABULOUS. From the moment Nancy, the owner, met us in the driveway, our trip was off to a great start. She was wonderful as she explained everything in this beautiful home. The home itself was well appointed. I don't remember the last time I slept on a comfortable vacation home bed. There were plenty of amenities, and the art studio is the basement was a real treat from my 7 year old daughter. The exercise equipment and the sauna all went to good use. I think we might have spent more time in the home than out and about in Duluth. My kids wanted to stay longer and definitely want to come back. This is one of the best vacation rental properties we have rented. . .and we have rented plenty of these VRBO and Home Away properties throughout the country. We will definitely be back!

Perfect Getaway in Duluth

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at this house for a reunion between friends in Duluth. The house is close enough to everything downtown but far enough away to enjoy relaxing walks by the lake. Interior of the house is perfect for company to hang out together in the kitchen. Felt very welcoming and clean. Owners were great people to organize travel arrival times with. Would recommend this home to anyone else.

Practically Ski-In Ski-Out

  • 5 of 5

Had a WONDERFUL stay at this great home in Duluth. The location was perfect for skiing at Spirit Mountain, less than 5-minutes away. Spirit Mountain had great variety for our 2 families, who had varying degrees of skill on the slopes. It is reasonably priced, and the runs were quite long for this area. The home is also close to a trail, perfect for winter running. The home itself is extremely clean and very nicely decorated. The owner is helpful, friendly, and professional. The kids' room was a hit...X-box, bunk bed...the works. We all enjoyed the great movie selection and big flat-screen. The best feature of the house was the smartly laid-out and well-equipped kitchen! Four adults were often all in there at once, and the ample counter space allowed us all to move around without stepping all over each other! We will be back!! 10/10!!! :-)

Owner's Response: I’m glad our vacation home worked out so well for you and your family. Being close to Spirit Mt. and the Munger Trail is definitely a big plus for our guests. I love the kitchen as well. With it being open to the dining room, everyone is included in on the conversation. Family vacations are so much fun.

Car: recommended

Our home is located in the quiet Riverside neighborhood of Duluth. It's just a few blocks from the Spirit Mountain Recreation Area, which has skiing, hiking, the Zip-line, and the Alpine Coaster. It's also located next to the Munger Trail, which is great for in-line skating, biking, walking, and snowmobiling and provides scenic views of the St. Louis River. Just down the street is a Marina and access to the Western Waterfront Trail. A perfect location for nature lovers, especially during the fall colors.

We are just minutes from downtown Duluth, Canal Park, the Aerial Lift Bridge, the Duluth Heritage Sports Center, Glensheen, Park Point, fantastic restaurants, shopping, public boat launches and the zoo.

Our newly renovated home offers you a tranquil place to relax after spending the day enjoying the beautiful outdoors. It includes a whirlpool tub to soften the muscles after a day of activity, a gas grill, sauna, a sunny enclosed front porch and a 50” TV for your enjoyment.

Other Activities: Snowmobiling, Frisbee Golf Courses, Dinner Cruise, Geo Caching

Ski: Skiing at Spirit Mountain is made so much easier. Our house is located near the bottom of Spirit Mountain. You can park at the bottom of the hill, just a few blocks from our house. Your walk to the lift is very short and you are on the hill in minutes. Our location makes your ski experience much more enjoyable.
