NOT A 'PARTY HOUSE'

Gentlemen...does she keep telling you to come up with something for your anniversary, or her birthday, Guys! Call me...I can help you plan something that will have her marveling at your thoughtfulness and bragging to her friends. You can do it, I can help. Call.

This home is not rented as a 'party house'. Suited for responsible groups, families, church groups, ladies retreats, or scrap booking party, Birthdays, and nature lovers. Celebrate mom and dads 50 anniversary with a family getaway, Business trip?... Bring the whole family. Just minutes from local hospitals - Extend your stay in comfort while visiting loved ones, or have peace and quiet while you recover from illness or loss. Is your house is too small for all the kids to come home? Gather all your adult children and their growing families and enjoy a holiday or anytime in this home away from home. Enjoy family time with the little ones or teens, cooking together in the fully equipped kitchen, going hiking, water rafting, rock climbing, skiing, shopping, kayaking, fishing and exploring all that the Duluth area has to offer. This house allows you to be creative. Don't hesitate to call with questions.

The adventure is right in your own back yard!: This home offers so much history and comfort, while still providing an outdoor adventure. The yard is a 1/2 city block with an array of trees and plant life. Deer are often seen walking through to nibble on the apple trees and occasional a friendly fox pounces around. It may be rare, but you may even sight a curios black bear. The yard boarders on a creek with lovely waters falls, paths, bridge and a occasional bench to sit on and just take it all in. In the winter this area is breathtaking. Large sheets of frozen water cling to the cliff walls, the air is crisp and fresh. The paths are always used, but not over used. Just perfect.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This was the most perfect place for our family to stay and prepare for our son's wedding. We had a wonderful time and we were completely comfortable in your home. From my 87 year old mother taking over the "butler's quarters" - Mike & I having the bedroom next to her (just so I could keep an ear open for her during the night); to our 3 grandchildren taking over the upper bedroom and turning it into a dormitory; to our son/spouse, daughter/spouse and my sister each having the privacy of their own room.

Past and Present

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home is tucked up against Congdon Park with deer running through the backyard and easy access to Superior Street, the UMD Campus, and nearby shopping. Out of the downtown district, it was a perfect place to sit on the deck and enjoy the fresh air and the company of family and friends.

The house is over 100 years old but has been updated with modern conveniences. With an updated kitchen and master bath, this older home kept all of its charm without losing the feeling of being in an early 20th century mansion. The well stocked kitchen has all of the utensils and "unpackables" to enable you to cook meals, just bring or buy your ingredients and off you go. Everything worked great, the house is well-maintained, and we had plenty of room for our large group to feel comfortable, not cramped, and to even lose track of people a few times when they snuck away to a back room with a book and a cup of coffee.

Having stayed at several VRBOs, this is one I would highly recommend!

Wonderful Place to Stay for Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Our friends came to Duluth from all over the country for our wedding and they all stayed together at Hawthorne Manor. The house was the perfect size - enough beds and baths to accommodate 14 people. The home is gorgeous and we loved walking through and exploring all the rooms and quirks. Everything was very well-thought out and we couldn't think of anything else we needed. The location could not have been better - none of the guests had been to Duluth before and it was easy for them to get everywhere and they enjoyed the neighborhood itself. They are still talking about it weeks later! We would highly recommend Hawthorne Manor!

Perfect family get together

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful home!!! We rented this house so the entire family could stay together for my son's wedding. With all of us scattered across the country, it was the perfect solution. There is enough room so eveyone had their own space and it never seemed crowded.

Theresa is a wonderful hostess!!! She makes you feel welcome from the first correspondence and even called once we checked out to make sure all went well. She has put together a wonderful notebook filled with the history of the house, things to do in Duluth and all sorts of info. Don't think twice about securing this home...you wont be disappointed!!!!

Great place for a friends getaway weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Great accommodation for large groups. They extra bedroom along the master was great for our infant so he could be close by yet in another room. Also, the spot next to the kitchen was great for individuals who like to stay up later at night. They were separate from the other upstairs bedrooms. It was really cool to read the history of the house and are excited to stay there again in the future.
