"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!!"
