Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: 'German Haus' was built in 1975. The design came from a picture of a German house taken by my brother while he was stationed in Germany. Being of German heritage, I was interested in visiting the 'Old Country' and did so on three occasions. To my delight, I found many homes that resembled the one we had built in Fredenberg.

Why the Owner Chose Duluth, MN, USA:
This home is nestled between two lakes-one that is part of a large reservoir and a much smaller one that is perfect for canoeing or kayaking. The home sits atop a hill that allows the occupant to see across the marsh and out to the lakes on either side. The long, private driveway leaves the road sounds behind and deer, grouse, and other wildlife can be seen meandering throughout the day.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walking, hiking, biking, fishing, boating, and swimming are all accessible from the property, and in the winter months, snowmobiling, ice skating, ice fishing and cross-country skiing are the sports of choice. The warmth of the fireplace on a cold winter's night brings comfort and joy to the residents as they look out the many windows to see a host of tall standing birch trees. Feel a sense of times past as you sit by the old wood cook stove and sip your freshly brewed cup of coffee. A small country store is just a mile away and can supply your basic food, gas, and miscellaneous item needs including the minnows for the day's fishing!
