About the Property
Quiet neighborhood with large house to use while you explore nature!
If you are looking for posh, planning to party, smoke at all, do drugs or drink excessively, you'll have to find a different place to rent.
If you want a very quiet house in a nice established neighborhood to use as your home base while you paddle the rivers, bike, run, hike or ski the trails of Outdoor Magazine's top outside town, this is your place!
Home, with much of it's original woodwork, is located less than a mile from Chester Bowl and Bagley which have both running and Nordic ski trails. Piedmont, Lester, and Hartley are within a few miles of the home and have Mountain bike trails, running, and Nordic skiing. Spirit Mountain, Jay Cooke State Park, and more are within 30 minutes of the retreat!
Your hosts spend most of their free time on the numerous trails and bodies of water in the area and would love to share their knowledge with you to help you plan your excursions!
Limit of 7 people, pets only upon approval in special cases with additional deposit.
Rates vary depending upon time of year, call for details.
Discounts given to certain Silent Sports groups and retired folks who want to play in this ginormous playground of Duluth.

Why the Owner Chose East Hillside, Duluth, MN, USA:
We lived here until recently when we moved ten miles away to be able to walk out the front door and into several parks, the Superior Hiking Trail, and have some land.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property is centrally located and has safe indoor storage for all those Silent Sports toys along with a waxing area and bench for Nordic skis. UMD, St. Scholastica, Chester Bowl, Bagley and Lake Superior are all within a mile of this house! Our website details how close we are to so many other outdoor playgrounds!
