"My friends and I are repeat customers and will definitely be back again! This house is adorable and very clean. We love the stereo and cd collection provided and had background music on all the time - only turned the tv on once. House rules and procedures are on the fridge and are easy to read and follow. We will definitely be back!"

"We didn’t want to stay in Duluth near all the action and this home is ideally located 10-12 minutes north of downtown. Not water front property, but a quiet brook running through the property and very private!
I was looking for a rental home to celebrate number of occasions - My parent’s 50th wedding anniversary, dad’s birthday, and my nephew’s 2nd birthday. I found this place and it was perfect to accommodate our family, especially since they allowed pets (dogs). As a professional event planner, I’m always looking for great people to work with and have high expectations. Loren was wonderful to work with and super responsive with all my correspondence. The home was well equipped with kitchen supplies, towels, games, grill, and furniture in shared spaces. Don’t expect to watch tons of TV as there is no cable, but our family didn’t mind as the point of a vacation is to spend time with each other and converse… not watch TV. We cooked one large dinner and two breakfasts while enjoying these meals in the large dining area overlooking the nature around us. Very comfortable home and sleeping accommodations for our group of 5 adults and 1 two year old. I was also impressed (as a former engineer) with the electrical wiring and lighting, heated floors in certain rooms, and zone control heating in every space. Great for adjusting heat settings to suit everyone.
This beats staying in a hotel and dealing with parking, rowdy neighbors, and lack of family/living room space (unless you book a suite). My only complaint was the weather was cool and foggy so we didn’t get to enjoy the large deck. Talking about making this an annual get away for family and would stay here every time. Very much enjoyed our stay and recommend this home to others looking for comfort and privacy!!"

"I stayed at the Northwoods Retreat for a long weekend with a friend, her 10 year old daughter and my two Border Collies, and I cannot say enough good things about it! Everything was exactly as advertised and exceeded all my expectations. It was comfortable, quiet, peaceful, remote and relaxing. There were plenty of supplies in the cabin and lots of dry wood for our nightly bonfires. The Border Collies and I started every morning off with a jog down the logging road and back then down the road a half mile to Morcom Lake to cool off, followed by a hike in the woods on a 4 wheeler trail there. I never saw a soul, I felt like we had the area all to ourselves. We checked out some other 4 wheeler trails by the cabin and in the State Forest area nearby, and I found several more to check out next time. There were lots of ripe raspberry bushes near the cabin which was an extra treat, and the minimal mosquito population was an unexpected bonus. It was an unusually hot weekend (90 degrees during the day), so we didn't try the sauna, but it sure looked nice. Outside of hiking we spent our days lounging in the yard reading and enjoying the amazing peace and quiet and the beauty of nature around us. I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway, and I definitely look forward to our next visit very soon!"
