Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Riverside - Riverside Retreat

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom with whirlpool tub, sleeps 7

We have a beautifully renovated three bedroom home with all new furniture, carpeting and refinished hardwood floors. It is decorated in earth tones to add to the relaxing setting that the local area brings. Two of the bedrooms have queen sized beds and the third has a bunk bed - double bed on the bottom and a single on the top. The pictures that adorn the walls are watercolor prints of scenes from the Duluth area painted by a local artist. The kitchen is stocked with all the appliances and utensils you will need to feel right at home, including a pizza oven and waffle maker. The diningroom table seats 8, plus the breakfast counter seats two more. There is a washer and dryer for your convenience. To really warm up after a day on the ski hill, there is a sauna that seats 3-4 comfortably. For those with a little more energy, a stationary bike and eliptical are available for use. There is a gas grill ready and waiting for your choice of entree. The 50 inch TV and DVDs are great!

On-Site Activities: If you are looking to relax together as a group, a table has been set up with a variety of ceramic pieces available to paint. There are plenty of items and colors to pick from along with brushes and sealer to finish the project.

Need to check your e-mail, but don't want to haul your computer with? A computer is available with access to the internet, along with some games for relaxation. If you need to bring your own computer, there is wireless internet available to serve your needs.

There is also an X-box with plenty of games to pick from.

Lovely home and well equiped with everything you need while away from home.

  • 4 of 5

This property offered more than enough for our family of four while on vacation in Duluth. It is well cared for and beautifully furnished and decorated. We enjoyed our stay. The owner is very friendly and helpful and we can defenitely suggest renting this property if your travels take you to Duluth.

This is a very nice home

  • 5 of 5

We were in Duluth for a hockey tournament with my daughter, her husband and granddaughter. The house was perfect. It is in a good location and everything that we needed was there. The house was clean and nicely decorated. I definitely will stay there again when hockey brings us back to Duluth! It is so much better then staying in a hotel and very reasonable .

Very cozy and exceptionally clean!

  • 5 of 5

Visited Duluth for a weekend of skiing at Spirit Mountain with our daughter and her family. This home is definitely a home away from home with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Ski hill is a two minute drive away to a very nice chalet located at the bottom of the hill. We will definitely be back! Thank you Nancy!

10 Industrial Ave. Duluth,MN

  • 5 of 5

This house was awesome. It was beautifully decorated and provided all the comfort of home with everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The nice thing was is that all the bedding, towels, pots, pans, grill, and all the appliances (don't forget the washer and dryer) are there to move in and use for the course of your stay. The pictures of Nancy's rental house say it all -beautiful,clean, and cozy.

Awesome Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for our summer vacation this year and what a great place to stay! I usually do not take the time to write a review but this was above our expectations- When we arrived the house was spotless and beautiful just like the photo's. The yard is large enough to play games and it has a patio with a gas grill and a gazebo which we used a lot since it was hot the week we were there. Parking was plentiful as we had a large boat & truck and 3 other vehicles.

Nancy is awesome to work with- very accommodating all week! I guess another reason we liked it so much were all the "little extra's" like several movies we could watch- all the cooking utensils we needed- in the bathroom cupboard there was lotions, shampoo, blow dryer, plenty of towels. We had a washer and dryer in the basement with work out equipment, sauna and a table with ceramics we could have painted had we had time- We were only 10 minutes away from canal park and less than 5 minutes from Spirit Mountain and the Superior Zoo. We found a place to launch out boat off of Garfield Ave which is public and no fee. One last thing to note, we walked in the mornings and was able to get on the Munger trail just a few minutes from the house. The marina where they used to build ships is just a few minutes away to- Like I said GREAT PLACE TO STAY!!

Owner's Response: It is very nice to hear that you were so pleased with the accommodations. We work very hard at making sure the house is in tip top shape for our guests and so we appreciate the positive feedback. We just finished the patio and gazebo and were pretty happy with the way it turned out. I’m glad you had a chance to enjoy it. With so many things to do in Duluth, it is great to have a place to come home to and just relax. I look forward to seeing you again in the future. Thanks for staying at our vacation home.

Location

Car: recommended

Our home is located in the quiet Riverside neighborhood of Duluth. It's just a few blocks from the Spirit Mountain Recreation Area, which has skiing, hiking, the Zip-line, and the Alpine Coaster. It's also located next to the Munger Trail, which is great for in-line skating, biking, walking, and snowmobiling and provides scenic views of the St. Louis River. Just down the street is a Marina and access to the Western Waterfront Trail. A perfect location for nature lovers, especially during the fall colors.

We are just minutes from downtown Duluth, Canal Park, the Aerial Lift Bridge, the Duluth Heritage Sports Center, Glensheen, Park Point, fantastic restaurants, shopping, public boat launches and the zoo.

Our newly renovated home offers you a tranquil place to relax after spending the day enjoying the beautiful outdoors. It includes a whirlpool tub to soften the muscles after a day of activity, a gas grill, sauna, a sunny enclosed front porch and a 50” TV for your enjoyment.

Other Activities: Snowmobiling, Frisbee Golf Courses, Dinner Cruise, Geo Caching

Ski: Skiing at Spirit Mountain is made so much easier. Our house is located near the bottom of Spirit Mountain. You can park at the bottom of the hill, just a few blocks from our house. Your walk to the lift is very short and you are on the hill in minutes. Our location makes your ski experience much more enjoyable.
