WOODSY LODGING NEAR LAKE SUPERIOR

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Duluth

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Secluded single family home on 40 heavily wooded acres...yet only 10-min from the scenic North Shore and only 20-min to downtown Duluth! The starry nights are spectacular away from the city lights and the sights & sounds of wildlife are everywhere.

The Space

Our single level 30' x 40' guest home (built in '06) has an open floor plan. The great room measures 18' x 30' and has a spacious kitchen and dining area on one side with the living room/TV viewing area on the other. The two bedrooms are located at the front of the house...one has a queen bed and the other a double with the latter room also having a loft directly overhead... which is ideal for two children... sleeping bags required. The back of the house has a fairly large bathroom which doubles as the utility room. The washer and dryer are located here, which guests are welcome to use.

Guest Access

A fully functional wood burning stove is centrally located in the great room. Guests are welcome to use it...my wife & I heated this home for 6-years almost exclusively with wood. Firewood is provided at no charge. As a back-up, there are individual electric wall heaters in each room.

Interaction with Guests

My wife & I are in the midst of finishing our retirement home which is located in the middle of our 40-acres, so we are only a 5-minute walk up the driveway should guests have questions or need our assistance in anyway.

The Neighborhood

Breathtaking views along the shore of Lake Superior are just 10-minutes away! Stroll along the beach or bike, roller blade, jog or walk along dedicated paved pathways. The Lakeside residential community is only 5-minutes further where you’ll find an awesome city park, 27 hole golf course, craft shops, bakery, grocery store, gas stations as well as a convenient place to pick up subs, pizzas, etc.

Closer to home, guests are welcome to hike along the walking trails that we've cleared on our private 40-acres or, crossover onto 100’s of acres of adjoining State property to explore even more! Wild raspberries are often plentiful along the trails in late July/early August and wild hazelnuts are ready for picking in August….provided you get to them before the squirrels and deer do! The north side of our property is peppered with numerous Maples so during Sept/Oct, a walk through the woods becomes exceptionally brilliant with all of the Fall colors!

Guests are also encouraged to simply sit back, relax and enjoy the campfire area. (Campfire wood is provided at no charge.) I personally never get tired of listening to the sounds of the night accompanied by a spectacular star lit sky… all from a front row seat in this country setting!

Getting around

While a bike ride to Lake Superior is not out of the question...particularly since it is mostly downhill, the return trip could be a real bear! We're in the country, so personal transportation is necessary!

We had a wonderful time! We had everything we could have possibly needed and the accommodations were perfect. We saw a lot of wildlife including deer and even a bear as we were leaving to head home. I would definitely recommend staying here!

great stay; lots of personal touches.

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay was wonderful. It was a great vacation for our small family. Our 20 month old daughter and dog loved being outdoors. I loved that I could sit and read outside while our daughter napped and we could enjoy a campfire or watch one of the movies or play a game after she went to bed. The owners took great care to see that guests would have an enjoyable stay-well organized, hand written notes on cute frames with little tips and labels. We were even welcomed with delicous cookies when we arrived. We love visiting Duluth in the summer and found staying here much more enjoyable than at a hotel in the city. You do lose a little time traveling to and from Duluth but we loved the peace and quiet and avoided last year's feeling of being trapped in a hotel so close to fun things with a sleeping baby. If you are debating a hotel vs. this cabin which small children I would certainly recommend here!

A Week Full Of Welcomes

  • 5 out of 5
I highly recommend this place for your next getaway. We were treated more like family than customers. Kitchen was spacious and well-equipped. Entire property inside and out was clean, well maintained, and a great destination to escape MSP. If you want to explore the Duluth/North Shore area - the location is perfect. The driving distance, amenities, wildlife, campfire and wild strawberries were all enjoyed by kids age 7 to 21. Mom and Dad enjoyed the beautiful walks, the silence, large kitchen and bathroom, and being content knowing that our lodging was everything we expected - no surprises. Thank you R & J for making our experience enjoyable, safe, and relaxing. See you soon!

Owner's Response: Despite a large family, everyone seemed to pitch in to assure that the property would essentially be in the same condition as it was upon their arrival...teens doing dishes, kitchen tidy, towels washed, etc. Quite simply, guests that one would enjoy having back anytime!

Great Place!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed for a week here and couldn't have asked for a better place! Secluded and very quiet. All furnishings were very comfortable too. Everything we needed or wanted was here including washer/dryer, all cooking supplies, electric blankets, fire wood, games, puzzles, dvds, towels and toiletries, and blankets. Great for 2 couples w/ kids or a bigger family. Only suggestion is bring bug spray! lol

Owner's Response: Guests demonstrated a high degree of respect for our property. Left our guest house in virtually the same condition as they found it. They truly appreciated the convenience of having an onsite washer/dryer, given the need to do a few loads of kids laundry. As far as the mosquitos population is concerned, near record snowfall this past Winter and a very wet Spring has produced prime breeding areas. Last Summer, on the other hand, there was very little need for bug dope as Mother Nature gave us a much drier Spring.
