The Old Village Hall, finished in 1929, was used as a court house, jail house, and fire house and now has become a living space. This is the lower level of the building, complete with a fireplace and laundry, one king bed, one queen bed, and one queen roll out. There is a patio with a fire pit, and enough room to park your truck and boat, four wheelers or snowmobile. In close proximity to Spirit Mountain and Mont Du Lac ski resorts, as well as Jay Cook State Park and the Munger Trail. The Oliver and Boyscout boat landings to the St. Louis River are just down the road. This river will take you into Lake Superior. If fishing is your interest, book an outing with Houston's Guide Service. You can reach them at 218-393-4962 or email. We are 20 minutes from the Canal Park, Park Point areas in Duluth.

About Keith Johnson
We are Keith and Kristine Johnson. We have a young daughter named Sage, and have lived around the Duluth-Superior areas all our lives. We now reside at the edge of town in Superior near Pattison State Park.
Keith Johnson purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Keith Johnson chose Superior
This property caught my eye when a friend, who had recently purchased the place, invited me over to take a look at it. I liked how unique it was so I asked how attached to the building he was and he had no intention to sell. Six months later he said he decided to move to another city and asked if I would like to purchase the property, in which I replied yes.
What makes this Apartment unique
The exterior of the building is like it was years ago. There is a bell tower, and with a bit of restoration, the original bell of 1929 was put back into place.
Great place to stay!
Wow - this place is amazing! Everything was top notch, the wood furniture added so much character. Lot's of room, nice patio surrounded by beautiful flowers and very gracious hosts! Very well equipped too, I didn't expect everything from paper towels and plates to fire wood for bonfires. We stayed here while on a bike trip, it's only a few minutes from several state parks. It's located in a very small town, the only thing within walking distance is a couple of restaurants/bars which was fine with us. Good food and a fun crowd. There is the occasional train, quite a few actually but that didn't bother us. We had a great stay, thanks for making us feel at home!
Clean, roomy and a just like home feel
This space was perfect for our friends weekend away. The two beds were comfortable and the entire place was very clean and bright. There was a beautiful patio and fireplace along with a grill - we didn’t get a chance to enjoy the outdoor offerings, but they were a nice touch. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed. As the other reviews stated, the train is loud and runs throughout the day and night, but it wasn’t enough to deter us from enjoying our stay. We would definitely stay again if we are in the area.
Great stay. Great host that answered any questions. Clean. Wonderful outside space. We would stay here again if we were in the area.
Great place for a get-away! Very clean and easy to find! Awesome rustic decor!
Overall very nice! We would recommend a couple noise canceling fans in the bedrooms for the train whistles, not enough to keep us away!
What a great place!
We were awed as soon as we opened the door. The wooden furniture is beautiful. Beds comfortable. Large bathroom. Ceilings fans kept us cool without the air conditioning. Kitchen well stocked and big enough for more than 1 cook. The sitting area on the side yard was divine. We weren't there enough to use fire pit, but it would have been a great additional perk. Really enjoyed our stay.
Unique place within interesting town
Very comfortable stay in a spacious 2 bedroom with a pullout couch. Outdoor fire pit and grill were a great touch. Can get to downtown Duluth in less than 20 minutes. Cool bridge across the St. Louis river and close access to great outdoor activities (especially Jay Cooke State Park).
