House was very nice and location is lovely. The house has kinda' odd arrangement and there were mice droppings in the kitchen. But, it is in the woods and the weather was getting cooler. Lots of books and games for children as well as adults. A lot of soccer was played in the front yard.

Our family of 7 thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the woods. We were close enough to Duluth to be able to go back and forth daily and to see the other wonderful sites nearby. Our family made great memories playing bocce ball in the yard and using the exercise equipment room. Would highly recommend this location and would love to go back some day.

Quiet and Wonderful

We had a really nice time at your rental place August 10-15. It was perfectly quiet, very comfortable, and very dark at night which made looking at the stars spectacular. We bought a couple of hummingbird feeders to leave there because the hummingbirds were very active and we did not want to leave them suddenly without the nectar. One is hanging under the eaves outside the sliding door to the deck and the other is stuck in one of the flower boxes on the deck. We left a small bottle of nectar in the refrigerator with a note on it and a note on the side of the refrigerator with instructions. It was a perfect place for our vacation and your list of restaurants and things to see was very helpful. One restaurant, The Lighthouse at Emily's was especially memorable. It is located at 218 Scenic Drive, Scenic Hwy 61, Knife River, MN, and is a very short drive from your place. A really great candy store is right across the street from it. The entire route of Scenic Highway 61 is worth driving. Thanks again for everything.

Quiet, Yet Close to Amenities
Quiet, Yet Close to Amenities
We stayed in this lovely home temporarily, shortly after relocating to the Duluth area. The location is very private, but only about 15 to 20 minutes from downtown Duluth, and about 25 minutes from the Miller Hill Mall area. Just a short drive to Hawk Ridge, Glensheen, and Lake Shore Drive. Beautiful location in a heavily wooded area next to a creek - we saw a lot of deer during our stay. The home is tastefully decorated and has it's own sauna, jacuzzi, exercise room, and a screened in area off the deck. Perfect for a weekend retreat or relaxing vacation. The owner was great to deal with too - very accomodating and responsive to our requests.
