Amazing! But avoid the loony neighbor..

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time, and really enjoyed this cabin! The bedrooms are very large and feel just like home. There are a few cool trails through the woods that everyone enjoyed, and it wasn't too far from Duluth. My only complaint is that the neighbor was very rude about me riding my motorcycle, which is extremely quiet. He jumped out of the woods and stopped me while i was casually cruising back along the dirt road at about 5-10 mph. Otherwise, the cabin was very clean and nice, and the garage was massive and included a full gym! The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a big spacious deck to enjoy the outdoors on. This is the place you want to rent!

Great house--has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

i stayed here with my cousins for a family reunion. the pictures do not do the house justice. it is so nice, clean and homey and has all the linens, comforters and towels that you need. lisa was VERY responsive. when we had a minor issue with the sump pump, she had someone come in and take care of it while we were out to dinner. i can't recommend this home enough.

A beautiful setting, comfortable and roomy. Very well kept and close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the most well stocked VRBO we have stayed in. Owner was not only available for questions, but proactive. New linens and luxury hotel towels were a treat. A peaceful spot to connect with family. Close to Duluth and Two Harbors, so either direction got you what you were searching for. We enjoyed dinner on the deck and the walking trail to the river. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Perfect for a girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, fast responses, and very spacious. This home was perfect for a bachelorette/girls weekend. Very private but still a reasonable ride to downtown Duluth. Would definitely stay again!

Beautiful house on a beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We had so much fun renting out Lisa's cabin for my best friend's bachelorette weekend. The cabin was beautiful and immaculate -- plus had everything we needed to cook some super yummy meals. Thankfully we also had perfect weather so we spent time on the HUGE, lovely porch and playing lawn games. It was the perfect weekend getaway and the process went so smoothly. Would rent again. Thanks, Lisa!
