We stayed 3 nights and had a very good time. The cabin is in a very quiet, wooded area but still close to Duluth. Lots of parking too which is nice. We went to Island Lake for swimming & canoeing which is about 20 minutes away. The cabin has a huge deck and the beds are very comfortable. It's not fancy, but has everything you need and for a reasonable cost. You do have to do some cleaning but other places have a $75-100 cleaning fee so if you don't mind a little extra work you'll save money.

Overall a good stay.

  • 4 of 5

This fit our large group well and didn't feel cramped. It was close to Duluth to go and do activities in town. We did have a heavy rain the one night and got water in the finished basement. This was pretty inconvenient as our kids had their suitcases on the floor and everything got wet. I called Micheal and he did have his neighbor come over right away. The neighbor was more concerned with the storage room clean up then the actual living space. Our kids cleaned up a mass majority of the water in the living space. When I had called Michael he stated this was the first time it had ever happened. His neighbor on the other hand stated this happened last year at nearly the same time and that the one side of the house just needs to be ripped off and redone which is a plan for the future. Some compensation for the inconvenience would have been nice.

Great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin had the right accommodations for my family. It is close enough to downtown Duluth, so was not an issue. It was priced right, it was clean and although we didn't do much cooking, it did have a well stocked kitchen. The yard was great. We played bocce a few times😊

All in all, it was a great stay for us!

The Duluth cabin was very nice. Loved the rap around deck. The beds were very comfortable.

The kitchen was well stocked with everything. The furniture very comfortable to sit on. I want it for my own!

Decent home, Difficult owner

  • 2 of 5

Although the home was decent, we had a difficult time with the owner.

On the second night of our stay a dog without a collar or tags showed up at the home around 5. It never left the deck area. I didn't feel comfortable having my dog or my kids (4 & 6) play outside with a dog that didn't have a collar or tags. I called Michael to see if he could identify the dog. He wasn't sure whose dog it was and suggested we "throw some sticks at it" to get it to leave. I said we had tried to consult animal control but they were closed and their message said to call 911 if needed. After 8, I called 911 because we wanted the dog to be safe.

The next day we saw a sign posted for the lost dog and I called the owner immediately. The owner texted me that he got the dog and would get a collar.

That day the downstairs toilet wasn't flushing. After lunch we noticed there was sewage on the basement floor next to the washer and dryer and into a storeroom. I called Michael immediately. He said he would get a plumber over and to leave a key outside so the plumber could get in.

Late that afternoon I texted Michael to check the progress. He said the plumber had cleared the sewer line from outside and said it must have been clogged by the previous renters. I inquired about the sewage inside and Michael said he "wished I would have told him earlier." I responded that I had told him "there is poop on the floor." He said he would give us a "$50 rebate for our troubles." (At this time, he has given our deposit back but no rebate.) We hadn't been at the house all afternoon and had wanted to go back to have dinner and get our kids relaxed for bed. Michael said that he could call a cleaner and they would put down bleach. At this point, 6:30pm, we told him this just wasn't realistic for us to stay. We wanted to enjoy family time and having a stranger in the basement moving around the washer and dryer to clean and putting bleach fumes in the air near our kids' beds just doesn't sound like vacation. Michael was upset and said "you can't please everyone."

Later that evening he texted me that a neighbor told him the dog followed us back from a walk. Michael failed to ask questions to clarify the situation before telling me in the message that he was "appalled at my behavior." If he had asked, he would have learned that we never even took a walk. My 73 year old dad has bad hips.

If you rent here, beware.

Owner's Response: My wife and I have been renting vacation rentals for over 10 years and take pride in providing a comfortable and tranquil environment and strive for exceptional communication. Sara was two weeks late to make payment and then began making demands the moment they arrived. It was quite obvious they were trying to find any flaw possible rather than having a good time and enjoy the peace and solitude of their environment. The first night they called the sheriff on a neighbors dog that followed them home after taking their dog for a walk. My neighbor contacted me about how impolite and disrespectful they were to him in regards to his small dog. The second day they clogged the toilet which overflowed a floor drain. They contacted me and I had to pay a plumber an emergency rate to clear the line. The plumber said they had put something in the toilet that should have gone in the trash. Once that was completed, Sara had a new problem, she said shower water had come out of the floor drain initially when I spoke to her but now claimed it was sewer water. I immediately had my maintenance man go to the house to clean the grey water with bleach. Once this was complete, she called and said she could not stay at the cabin because of the back-up. Sara is the most inconsiderate rudest renter we have ever hosted. Every problem they encountered they caused. I would advise future renters to read our 60+ positive responses before basing their opinion on this impudent renters negative response.
