Close to Duluth's offerings and to the North Shore. Traveled to Grand Marais. Contacted the owner about a blown circuit but we were able to fix that ourselves. Otherwise, no problems.

Updated home with comfortable beds and a great big yard to play games

  • 5 of 5

very quiet location - lots of room to play games outside and we enjoyed taking walks to the river. This house was very comfortable for us and the owner was very accommodating I would go here again.

Birthday Get-away

This was a surprise for my wife's birthday. Our girls, husbands and grandson surprise her by having a weekend together. The house was great. Well kept and clean. Stocked with every household need you can think of. Very happy with our stay. Thank You!

We were concerned about the toilet on the first floor. It ran almost every time we used it. There was water on the floor around the base. We were not sure if it was actually leaking, or the condensation on the bowl and tank caused it. Shower on first floor was slippery.

Wonderful all around

  • 4 of 5

It was very nice and perfect for our family. The only thing was that we wish the air conditioner cooled the entire house better. Beautiful property!
