Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Duluth

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

We are at the shoreline of Lake Superior, ½ acre of land with 200 ft of shoreline. There are steps to the ledge rock below where you can listen and watch the waves and catch the lake breezes. The changing nature of the lake will grab your attention and sometimes create a sense of awe. Since the property is on the shipping lanes leading to Duluth, you will see the huge boats of the lake, and also the fishing boats of the local restaurants.

The home has beautiful views of Lake Superior, the family room revealing a sun drenched panoramic view. Nature is on display through the various views of other rooms. A screened-in-porch, lakeside deck, outdoor seating, and patio dining enhance the outdoor experience. A screened in gazebo also offers solitude and refuge from everyday stress.

There are two large bedrooms with comfortable mattresses, a sofa sleeper (with view of fireplace and lake) and additional mattress padding. The family room is adjacent to the kitchen and porch. There is also a dining room, piano, living room with original stone fireplace, and a TV room with leather couch, chair and ottoman, and views of the lake. For those who want to cook, the kitchen is fully furnished with cooking utensils and a electric stove and full sized refrigerator. For those who want to dine out, there are

fine restaurants in the immediate area, and other dining choices from the familiar to the unique.

The two cities of Duluth and Two Harbors are within a 15 minute ride. Both cities offer festivals, shopping, and yearly events. Knife River is only 2 miles away and is the site of a large sandy beach, a marina, the Knife River, and the Superior hiking trail. Local smoked lake trout is available for you to buy, and fishing/boating excursions are for hire at the Knife River marina.

Once you are here, you will wish you never had to leave. The charms of the North Shore are various and within a day’s drive from The Bon Aire at Greenwood Cliffs. As often as you visit, there is always more to explore. The natural beauty and rugged history are part of the experience.

About Chris Schousboe

My husband and I live in a condo in the heart of the Twin Cities. The Bon Aire is our spiritual refuge away from the noise and crowding of city life.

Chris Schousboe purchased this house in 2002

Why Chris Schousboe chose Duluth

I wasn't looking for a vacation home, but I ran across it online and fell in love with it. Some day we will retire to the Bon Aire. There is nothing else like the North Shore and Lake Superior.

What makes this house unique

The home is larger than most would predict with almost 1500 sq ft. This allows for privacy and room to spread out. A new remodel upstairs opens this area to downstairs renters for an additional fee.

Thank you for the wonderful accommodation. I read reviews before we booked and they said they didn't want to share you. I now know what they were talking about! Everything was supplied and the view was wonderful especially in the morning eating breakfast or just savoring a cup of coffee! We could have stayed there all day but took in the local sites. We have been to the area several times in the past but were glad to get reacquainted. It was a last visit for my husband's 92yr old mother who was glad she came. She always says at her age it's her last time because at 92 she doesn't make long time plans! It was perfect for her limitations, just a little shaky on the steps down to the rocks but she was determined to do it one last time. She was just fine and we will definitely be back. Thanks, Chris for a wonderful time.

Owner's Response: Hi Louise. So glad you all enjoyed yourselves at the Bon Aire. I especially am tickled that your Mom made it down the steps to the ledgerock. Such a special memory. I am looking forward to your return.

House was very well kept and beautiful view of the lake. Weather was not so good so the fireplace was a nice touch to stay warm.

Owner's Response: Yes, 2014 has been a tough year weather wise for the North Shore.
Glad you could find some comfort by the wood stove.

Family Vacatrion

  • 5 out of 5
This was an excellent vacation cottage. We could not get enough of the view, the privacy, and were impressed with the superbly clean and well stocked cottage. We wished we would have stayed longer, and plan on making this a yearly vacation spot. We enjoyed hiking at Gooseberry falls and eating at Fitgers Pub. However, our favorite was just being at the cottage and laying on the ledge rocks with our favorite reading material.

We've returned three times now, and consider it "our" place on Lake Superior

We can not say enough good about this property. The location to Duluth and the small North Shore communities is great. We enjoy hiking the state parks along the North Shore so we like being away from the city a bit. We also love to eat-in, so proximity to restaurants is not a factor for us. With the beautiful lake view and the well-equipped kitchen, you could understand. The beds are comfortable, the furnishings homey, and there are places for us to spread out, play games, play the piano, watch movies, relax by the fire pit, read a book in the gazebo, etc. The lake literally out the back door is something we haven't found elsewhere. We hate to recommend this property too much as we don't want the availability to get tight! :-) But in all seriousness, this is definitely a great value and well maintained home that we plan to continue renting and recommending to others.

Owner's Response: I admit, it's wonderful to hear the happiness in your review. I want everyone to feel that way at the Bon Aire. It has 'good' vibes that relax and can give a sense welcome and 'glad you are here'. Thanks Amy & James.

Winter Wonderland!!

  • 5 out of 5
Was a wonderful, beautiful, and relaxing stay for our little girlfriend getaway! The home was very clean, lovely, and very cozy.
A warm fireplace to make our stay even warmer during the winter!
The wonderful view of the Lake Superior was like a winter Wonderland! The thought of seeing it in the fall or summer had us deciding we would come back for sure! Definitely booking our fall stay soon! The girls and I can't wait!
Thank You Christine!

Owner's Response: Dear Tashing, Thank you for the great review. I am so glad you and your friends enjoyed the beautiful white winter here on the North Shore. This home, the Bon Aire is quite cozy despite the winter winds. And you can't beat the sun shinning in and the ice sparkling on the lake.

Lovely long weekend at Bon Aire

  • 5 out of 5
We love to spend a long winter weekend on Lake Superior every year, and have stayed at a couple of different nearby reasonable resorts. Bon Aire was so much nicer. The views are amazing, especially from the kitchen dining area. We love to watch how the lake changes daily, even in winter. The rental was spotless and had everything we needed for my husband's gourmet cooking, and the dishwasher made cleanup so easy. The photos do not do the place justice...the house turns out to be much larger than expected, with so much room to spread out. Having the dining room area/table in addition to the kitchen table made it easy to spread out my beadwork without having to clear up for a meal :) The heated floors in the bathroom were so nice & towels were fluffy and plentiful. Bed was comfy - we're pretty picky about that. As an artist I loved the owners' taste in photography, art, warm rugs and decor colors...nicely done. We also liked the content of the movie and book libraries (loved looking through the Blacklock and Brandenburg photo books), although we brought our own movies. More TV channels would have been nice, as the Olympics were happening, and NBC was not an available choice. Minor downsides: multiple air fresheners (we call them 'stinkers' :) ) -- too strong. We shut them away in the recycle bin while we were there. Also the kitchen lighting could be better - more light on the table side would help with food prep on the peninsula, and reading in the vaulted area. Maybe a halogen torchiere or something...Overall though, we LOVED this place and hated to leave. Totally recommend! Chris the owner was helpful, and Mick, the maintenence guy came daily to shovel snow, put down sand and did a little work in the upstairs apartment - not disruptive at all. We were glad there was no renter though - we do like to have a place to ourselves. Great food nearby: we picked up yummy smoked whitefish and sausage at the Northern Waters Smokehaus in the Canal Park area; the Duluth Grill served up a great breakfast on our way south leaving town; and on the way there we had our traditional lunch at the New Scenic Cafe, which over quite a few years now, has maintained the highest standards in gourmet creativity and quality. Thanks Chris, for sharing Bon Aire and allowing us a memorable and warm Valentine's.

Owner's Response: Thank YOU Julia for a comprehensive, thoughtful and helpful review!!! It was wonderful to think of you and your husband enjoying the Bon Aire cooking, having fun, and gazing at the lake. Your recommendations including the 'ugs' are much appreciated. I'll be very happy to have you back again! Chris
