Overview

About the property

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.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, the place was clean, and well stocked with everything we required. We only made a lunch and dinner there one day and opted to make the short trek into Duluth for our other meals, but the kitchen had everything we needed. Our hosts were very kind, they even let us stay until 6 on check out day since they didn't have the place rented that evening. This was a great base camp for me and my friends to stay while we were getting our start at hiking the superior hiking trail.

Owner's Response: I’m glad it worked out well for you. It was great that you were able to get some extra hiking in on your day of departure. When I don’t have guests coming in the same day of departure, I try and allow late departures. This really adds to the quality and relaxation of our guest’s stay. Our house is located in a quiet neighborhood in Duluth. It is not downtown where all the hustle and bustle is occurring ie. Canal Park. We are located on the St. Louis River side of the city, but well within the limits of the City of Duluth. Many hiking and biking trails are very close by.

Cozy and well-stocked home

  • 5 of 5

Cozy home was perfect for our stay. We appreciated the nice appliances and well-stocked kitchen. We made good use of the waffle maker and crock pot. Having nice dishes made us feel at home. Beds were comfortable. We loved the local artwork on the walls. The sauna was a nice bonus. We also made good use of the three-ring binder of brochures and things to do in and around Duluth.

Owner's Response: I believe a well stocked kitchen with nice appliances is a must in a vacation home. It is important to me that my guests feel comfortable and at home during their stay. I'm glad you enjoyed the artwork on the walls. A local retired artist painted all the pictures and I was lucky to be able to purchase some of her remaining prints before they were all gone. There is so much to do and see in Duluth. I'm glad my book of ideas was helpful in your adventures. Thanks for staying at my vacation home.

Map

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.
