Overview

About the property

1500 square foot place master bedroom is in the old jail portion of the building

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The property is so cozy! With a gas fireplace and heated floors in the bathroom, it was delightful and comfortable despite the freezing January temperatures. We cooked dinner and played games and watched sports and didn't even want to venture outside because this place had everything we needed. The perfect weekend getaway; I hope to make it back!

Great start to spring in Oliver!

  • 5 of 5

Great stay! House is exactly what we expected. Comfortable and well equipped for a good time. Watched movies, grilled a great dinner and had an evening fire. Breakfast at eldorodo was a nice wat to start the day and is across the street. Thank you to Keith for another great memory.

Relaxed, Easy stay

The property was clean, and well maintained. The owner is easy to work with and accommodating. It was a very easy experience in a great cabin style environment. Would definitely stay again!

Nice, unique little getaway place

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the place very much! Spacious living area and cozy bedrooms. Note that there's not really a dining area for more than three people to share a meal around a table, but we made it work. The location is a hidden gem for a weekend in Duluth. Unfortunately our plan to ski at spirit mountain was foiled by arctic temps, but that just meant we appreciated the spacious living area even more. The train whistles weren't too obtrusive, especially in winter with windows closed up. I'd stay here again!

Clean, warm and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Keith was very accommodating and friendly in all communication. The apartment had everything we needed and kept us warm even though it was between 0 and 20 below while we were there. We don't have any complaints or even any suggestions to help them improve upon. It was all great.
