FANTASTIC property nestled in the woods of Northern MN!!!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property for an extended Grandma's Marathon weekend with a group of 8 people. Everything about this place was perfect! Plenty of space, very well kept, Lisa was extremely helpful, and a great scenic location. We are already discussing coming back in the future! I highly recommend this place for anyone that is looking for a weekend (or longer) getaway.

Fun Ladies Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect place to have a fun weekend with my sisters. It comfortably slept 11 of us and the large kitchen accommodated our big meals. The beds were comfortable and the towels were nice and plush. The only thing lacking was a toaster! We searched all over for one and never found one so we had to change up our menu a little bit.

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.
