Close to Duluth's offerings and to the North Shore. Traveled to Grand Marais. Contacted the owner about a blown circuit but we were able to fix that ourselves. Otherwise, no problems.

very quiet location - lots of room to play games outside and we enjoyed taking walks to the river. This house was very comfortable for us and the owner was very accommodating I would go here again.

We were concerned about the toilet on the first floor. It ran almost every time we used it. There was water on the floor around the base. We were not sure if it was actually leaking, or the condensation on the bowl and tank caused it. Shower on first floor was slippery.
