About Robert and Cathleen Olson

'German Haus' was built in 1975. The design came from a picture of a German house taken by my brother while he was stationed in Germany. Being of German heritage, I was interested in visiting the 'Old Country' and did so on three occasions. To my delight, I found many homes that resembled the one we had built in Fredenberg.

Robert and Cathleen Olson purchased this house in 1975

Why Robert and Cathleen Olson chose Minnesota

This home is nestled between two lakes-one that is part of a large reservoir and a much smaller one that is perfect for canoeing or kayaking. The home sits atop a hill that allows the occupant to see across the marsh and out to the lakes on either side.

The long, private driveway leaves the road sounds behind and deer, grouse, and other wildlife can be seen meandering throughout the day.

What makes this house unique

Walking, hiking, biking, fishing, boating, and swimming are all accessible from the property, and in the winter months, snowmobiling, ice skating, ice fishing and cross-country skiing are the sports of choice.

The warmth of the fireplace on a cold winter's night brings comfort and joy to the residents as they look out the many windows to see a host of tall standing birch trees.

Feel a sense of times past as you sit by the old wood cook stove and sip your freshly brewed cup of coffee.

A small country store is just a mile away and can supply your basic food, gas, and miscellaneous item needs including the minnows for the day's fishing!

Great house for a family vacation.

  • 3 of 5

We had great time at German Haus. House has basic amenities and only 20 minutes from Duluth. Access to lake was limited by a fallen tree so no water activities.

Owner's Response: Thank you Folks, I apologize for the downed tree. A huge wind and rain storm went through the area and we actually lost 20 trees overall. The tree across the dock is being removed. Thank you, Cathleen

Excellent property, location, and host!

  • 5 of 5

The property is gorgeous and very well maintained. The German Haus is beautiful; it has a second story that is open to below, with plenty of beds and 3 bathrooms. The owners were fantastic and easy to reach at all reasonable hours of the day and the check-in and out was really slick and easy. The property is about 20 minutes north of Duluth proper and probably 35-40 minutes away from Canal Park, so if you want quick access to the bars and restaurants Duluth has to offer this is not the place for you. However if you are looking for a beautiful home in woods, that is secluded and quiet with lots of amenities like lake access and peerless views of the stars, then this is the place for you! We loved staying here, it was better than we could have hoped for.

Comfortable and clean!

  • 5 of 5

This house is spacious, clean and well-maintained. The interior was nicer than expected. From the pictures, the home looked to be more rustic but we found it to be very comfortable and homey. There was the right amount of furniture and the bathrooms were clean and well-maintained. The carpeting was also plush and clean. The owner was very professional and easy to work with. Check in and check out were both hassle-free. I would definitely rent German Haus again.
