Wonderful all around

  • 4 of 5

It was very nice and perfect for our family. The only thing was that we wish the air conditioner cooled the entire house better. Beautiful property!

The house was beautiful, clean and had everything we needed. The extra amenities were amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We loved using the extra amenities like the sauna and weight room. We were able to spread out all around the house. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. The beds were very comfy too.

Quiet, well-equipped, and large house! Great for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

We had two families for a total of 9 people and this house was perfect. the owners were responsive to any questions and were delightful to work with. The house has everything: games for kids, great exercise room, and fully-equipped kitchen. The fire put was nice and there is a large stock of firewood. This house provided easy access to highway 61 and made it easy to get to Duluth or Two Harbors for day trips. We'll definitely go visit again!

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.
