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 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).
GREAT PLACE--VERY CLEAN PROPERTY AND HAD PLENTY OF SUPPLIES
My husband and I spent a week at this place. We really enjoyed it....very comfortable and clean with all the furnishings you would ever need. Spent time at Jay Cooke Park, which was beautiful. Due to the flooding, we could not see a lot of Pattison State Park. We also rode the bike path from Jay Cooke Park to West Duluth, which was beautiful, and then went the other way on the trail the following day. The only drawback to staying at this venue was the train that went by very often, so I would recommend that you bring earplugs. We sat out by the fire-pit a lot in the evening, which was very relaxing. I would stay here again!
Great start to spring in Oliver!
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!
