Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Kenwood

Sleeps 8. 3 Bedrooms. 2 Baths.

The house known as the 'Captain's Quarters' sits at the forest's edge, set back from the road and tucked into a very private estate. A four year build, (completed in 2008), it is filled with modern luxuries such as a gourmet kitchen, beautiful bluestone gas fireplace, radiant heated floors, a spa bath, air conditioning and wifi internet. Though the amenities are modern, the 'feel' of the home is steeped in an old world charm and beauty. Built with a love for the art, nothing was overlooked. From the heavy Douglas fir timbers, to the ornate cast iron radiators, much was borrowed from days gone by and re purposed here. Details in brass, marble, red wood, granite, copper, maple, limestone, and stained glass are to be found throughout.

This home was designed with friends and family in mind, and so is very social and entertains beautifully. It is truly a pleasure to experience!

The house is surrounded by gorgeous natural landscapes. White pines tower above mossy cliffs and rocky outcroppings. Wild life big and small weave through the trees. Sweeping cedars huddle and lean into each other. Colorful maples surround it all, both glowing over, and shading the acreage. There's even a pretty forest pond for the frogs and ducks, and ice skating come winter, that sits below a cozy 'lighthouse' on the bluff.

Property adjoins hundreds of acres of a diverse designated 'green spaces' that are woven with miles of walking and cross country ski trails.

This house is located in the perfect part of Duluth. While being only minutes away from Lake Superior and Downtown one way, and the malls and airport the other, there is still an absolutely enchanting feel to it all.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Architectural aspects of the home are outstanding. Super clean. We had all we needed as a family of 8. Washer and dryer are a nice feature. No TV watching, it was more pleasurable to bird watch from the windows or on our hikes around the grounds. Considering we had two teenage boys, a 9 year-old boy and a 10 month old baby boy with us that says a lot! We played games at night and hiked during the day. We had wonderful morning breakfasts in a "to die for" kitchen and enjoyed gathering around the fire pit in the early evenings. Nicely appointed bathrooms. Doug, our host, greeted us with fresh roses on the kitchen island. Given it was past the middle of October, we were surprised and pleased to also be greeted by still blooming perennials outside the front door. Attention to detail bar none! We will be telling our friends about a very special place in Duluth - the Captain's Quarters!

Spectacular Home!

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a top notch quality home in which to stay for a few days, look no further. Top of the line finishes are used throughout this home and the layout is very conducive to visiting and entertaining. The location was close to everything we wanted to see and do in Duluth. Craftsmanship is second to none! Doug was very accommodating and hospital to my entire family. The only suggestion I can make would be for some brighter lighting in the kitchen for meal preparations. We have shared pictures of the home with friends and they as definitely interested in staying here as well. We will definitely be back to stay ourselves!

Beautiful setting and property

  • 5 of 5

Doug, thank you so much for the opportunity to stay at your beautiful home. Truly is a unique home that provides a very comfortable homey feel from the minute you pull up. We loved meeting and visiting with you. The home definitely provided everything we needed and was a wonderful place to come back to in between all of the wedding festivities that we had during our stay. Our only regret is that we just did not have enough downtime to enjoy the home. We will definitely be back to relax, bird watch, and enjoy a bonfire or two in the yard over a glass of wine with you in the future.

Thanks again - the Pettits!

Wonderful stay.

  • 5 of 5

The 'Captain's Quarters' home was even better than described in the rental listing. The home was gorgeous with high-end amenities. It is located a short distance from the city but with the feeling of being isolated from the traffic and neighbors. We really enjoyed the birds and occasional wildlife that visit to feast at the numerous feeders. Doug, the homeowner, lives close by and is available to answer questions or take care of any issues that might arise. Couldn't be more pleased with the accommodations.

Terrific Craftsmanship - fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the Captain's Quarters in Duluth for our son's wedding. We had a large group and lots of preparation ahead of the wedding and Doug was fantastic. He had the place already to go and what a place it is! The pictures don't do the home justice as the craftsmanship really is exquisite. We would definitely recommend this place to all of our friends.
