Amazing house! Has everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my family for a reunion. The property was perfect. The house is beautiful the beds fantastic. If you are looking for a place that fits 10 easy, but would still feel cozy and just right for 4 or 6 this place is it! The owner was easy to work with and so very friendly. Thank you Lisa for being a wonderful host.

Wonderful location & home for a big family getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Easy 10 min drive north of Duluth...spacious and full of every amenity we needed! Wonderful to have the use of the garage that also had a full fitness center! Trails led to the Little Knife pit...super quiet and relaxing. We also appreciated the high quality bedding and comfy furniture - you don’t always get that! Owner was very responsive and the entire process was hassle free.

Spacious cabin with the perfect amount of wilderness

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was well equipped and housed 8 guys comfortably for the weekend. The various outdoor areas (deck, firepit, etc) allowed us to fully take in the northern scenery for a relaxing weekend. Even though we did encounter some rain, the cabin was large enough to keep us all entertained. There was a minor issue with the grill, but Lisa's prompt follow-up resulted in it getting replaced during our stay. Truly a wonderful place to stay, and I hope that we get the opportunity to return!

Vesta, MN

Family of ten!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved your home and it offered us everything we needed and more! Our problem was leaving the property after receiving a heavy rain the night before and the road washed out and our car got hung up in the hole. Luckily tow truck and our guys were able to free the car and get us back on the road! A new experience for us!
