Bask in Historic Luxury! One of a kind large format whole-home rental.
About Kelley Minor
We are passionate about Duluth and this is our dream home in which we used to have the privilege of living full time until our jobs took us away. Knowing these amazing, untouched historic homes are one in a million and understanding the labor of love required to keep them pristine...We decided to keep, furnish and be steadfast stewards of this gorgeous time capsule. As parents to small kids ourselves, we have laid in countless hotel rooms wishing we were home, being frustrated with the inability for kids to nap/rest adequately, and have felt that frustration at spending our hard earned days off on a vacation where we just can't quite enjoy it because of the circumstances surrounding where we are staying. We are invested and committed to helping all visitors to Duluth enjoy the majesty of not only this home but also the city at large. We love creating a home-like atmosphere where families gather, reconnect, and build lasting memories. We strive to cultivate an experience that stays with you long after you leave.
Kelley Minor purchased this House in 2008

Great visit to Duluth!
Very friendly host, convenient location, house with a lot of character, enjoyed th bonfire pit, easily enough space for two families.
The house is charming, and easily fit all 9 of us.
There is a lot to do with in the house; we played hide and seek, it was a blast, we played games, music, had big dinners.
The outside is wonderful, no bugs!!!
Great family getaway spot
We really enjoyed our stay at Vacation Duluth. The house was very charming. The large dining room table was perfect for family dinners. The upstairs bedrooms were spacious. We especially enjoyed the easy access to the Lakewalk and London Road. Great for morning walks. We also found the little pathway to the lake, which provided us with a great spot to watch the fireworks. The only thing we found lacking was access to a TV, as the only TV is in the master bedroom. But this just forced us to spend more time as a family playing games. There was a good assortment of games available. Overall, the location was great and we had a great time. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
We are so happy that you enjoyed your time in the home! We are passionate about being mindful stewards to this amazing time capsule along with creating comfort for our guests. We are constantly adding to the comforts of home, family entertainment, reading materials and items featuring area attractions!
The television is situated in the master bedroom for storage and use, however, is mounted on a rolling cart and can easily be moved into the main living area if desired :)
We have such varied feedback on television! Some guests would prefer NO television in the home and others love enjoying the local news, Netflix, sports, etc. We opted for the rolling cart to accommodate all desires of our guests. Some tuck it away in the master walk in closet while others keep it in the main room for daily use.
We would love to host your group again in the future! New memories always await at Vacation Duluth!
Our family's winter gathering was a perfect fit in this cozy yet roomy vintage furnished home.
The large connecting living room / dining room was a great space to keep everyone connected and yet could seperate activities. The kichen was equipped well for feast preparations; along with a great dishwasher.
Beds were very comfortable, found only the double one too hard. With the abundant snow that hit us, the parking area needed more snow removal.
The deep claw tub upstairs was amazing for soaks, and the washer and dryer proved useful. The location was perfect for the hikers, runners and shoppers. The firepit outside was enjoyed as well for those who love hanging outside. I highly recommend you try this lovely home for your get away.
Unique large house with loads of character near Lake Superior!
I loved this house for hosting my adult kids and Duluth family for meals and a belated Christmas. Beautifully decorated for the holidays with tons of character in this well-kept century- old home. Absolutely loved soaking in the upstairs bathroom claw foot tub! We were warm in spite of subzero temps in Duluth. Enclosed porch and outdoor fire ring would be fun next time we visit in warmer temps😁. And just a few minutes walk to Lake Superior. We had a great stay and will be back!
