Hui Tor is 9 miles from downtown Duluth (Canal Park) and is situated on the highest hill overlooking Lake Superior.
A "sweet" experience for self-sufficient vacationers or travelers seeking comfort, beauty, nature, and fun. Our vision in creating our VRBO is to provide a rejuvenation point from the multitude of activities our region provides.
We offer a 550 sq. ft. 2016 newly decorated and furnished apartment situated on a 20 acre site atop the highest point in east Duluth. 60 ft. Norway pines, an orchard, flower and vegetable gardens, expansive lawns, and woodland walks adorn the property overlooking magnificent Lake Superior. Kids love the tree house.
Hui Tor is a two level home. The owners live on the top level, there is a second apartment on the lower level, and the private VRBO apartment is also on the lower level with private entry.
The interior of the VRBO is ideal for two people but can accommodate two additional people. There are three rooms; equipped kitchen/dining, bathroom with shower (no tub) and stack washer and dryer, bedroom with queen bed, TV, and full size sofa bed. Room dividers (provided in closet) may be placed between beds for a modicum of privacy.
SLEEP: We believe a day of activities is enhanced by a good night's sleep. We've gone out of our way to provide a comfortable queen size bed with high quality Egyptian cotton sheets, a down like comforter, both hard and soft pillows to choose from, and a blackout curtain to darken the bedroom for an afternoon nap.
EAT: Cook in, eat out, call for home delivery - the choice is yours. If you are into cooking, we offer a fully equipped kitchen (no dishwasher) and an outdoor grill with a high quality meat market less than a mile away at the bottom of the hill. With advance notice we can provide basic spices and ingredients if there is a favorite recipe you wish to prepare. If you prefer dining out we happily provide recommendations based on your likes and price. We are fortunate to have two popular burger and beer pubs within 2 miles.
ENJOY: Immediately outside the apartment is a hot tub and swimming pool open from 10 am to 10 pm. May 15 through September 15 to be used at your own risk. A signed release of liability waiver for both you and guests is required upon arrival. No glass is permitted around the pool but plastic ware is provided. Satellite TV and Wi-Fi are included. Enjoy the outdoors including our vegetable and flower gardens, orchard, and woodland walking paths. Every season offers many delights but we are particularly fond of a variety of wildlife that visits our property regularly. The annual fall hawk migration flyway is above our roof. Duluth and the region offer an astounding array of entertainment, festivals and activities throughout all 4 seasons. Duluth is Minnesota's No. 2 tourist mecca after the Mall of America in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul (150 miles south).
Please be aware that we are an energy conscious VRBO and that we do not allow smoking in the apartment.
Whether you’re staying for leisure or business, alone or with others, Hui Tor is designed to please and to provide memories to share with friends and family when you return home. We invite you to sign our guest book during you stay and to rate your experience at Hui Tor on the VRBO website after your stay.
Happy and safe travels!
