About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom with whirlpool tub, sleeps 7

We have a beautifully renovated three bedroom home with all new furniture, carpeting and refinished hardwood floors. It is decorated in earth tones to add to the relaxing setting that the local area brings. Two of the bedrooms have queen sized beds and the third has a bunk bed - double bed on the bottom and a single on the top. The pictures that adorn the walls are watercolor prints of scenes from the Duluth area painted by a local artist. The kitchen is stocked with all the appliances and utensils you will need to feel right at home, including a pizza oven and waffle maker. The diningroom table seats 8, plus the breakfast counter seats two more. There is a washer and dryer for your convenience. To really warm up after a day on the ski hill, there is a sauna that seats 3-4 comfortably. For those with a little more energy, a stationary bike and eliptical are available for use. There is a gas grill ready and waiting for your choice of entree. The 50 inch TV and DVDs are great!

On-Site Activities: If you are looking to relax together as a group, a table has been set up with a variety of ceramic pieces available to paint. There are plenty of items and colors to pick from along with brushes and sealer to finish the project.

Need to check your e-mail, but don't want to haul your computer with? A computer is available with access to the internet, along with some games for relaxation. If you need to bring your own computer, there is wireless internet available to serve your needs.

There is also an X-box with plenty of games to pick from.

Riverside Gem

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! So convenient to many of the surrounding trails and Spirit Mountain. Very quiet neighborhood. The house felt like a home vs a rental; very comfortable and clean. It had everything we needed. Nancy was very welcoming and great at showing us around. Will definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: I wholeheartedly agree with the title of your review. I call my vacation home Riverside Retreat and I too believe this is a gem of a place to stay. After reading your review, my first thought was Mission Accomplished! I’ve tried very hard to make this house feel like a home to those that choose to spend their hard earned vacations here. It is so nice to read comments that validate my efforts. I am a stickler on cleanliness and believe that each and every guest deserves to feel comfortable in the place they are staying. Thanks so much for your kind words of encouragement and come back anytime!

We had a true home away from home experience and then some. It lacked nothing. We would definitely stay here again and recommend our families and friends stay here when they visit the area. So very thankful we found this home it helped make our stay in Duluth so special.

Very comfortable, clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights in October 2017. The property is very comfortable, with two queen beds and one room with bunk beds. Just one bathroom, and it is upstairs as are all bedrooms. Lots of amenities, loads of info about area attractions, good TV, comfy beds. Very clean and well-kept. A fairly short drive to the waterfront or to the North Shore drive. The only things we would change are that there is no railing on the bottom few stairs, which was a little awkward, and no shoes allowed in the house. We did not go to the basement, but there is exercise equipment available. Thanks, Nancy!

Nice home that is up to date.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable home with nice updates. Within a few minutes of Canal Park and was easy to get to off the freeway.

Nancy made our stay very easy. She met us at the home when we checked in and even brought us a kitchen applicance that we wanted to use to make a pie.

Would recommend and stay again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling to Duluth yearly for many years and historically have camped. We were very happy that we chose to stay at this VRBO! Very clean, cozy, well decorated and in a good location. We had two children, ages 7 & 4 who used the bedroom with a bunk bed with no issues. Beds were comfortable and there is plenty of room for belongings. Kitchen had great appliances and all necessary pots, pans, dishes and utensils. Bathroom was spacious with a great jacuzzi tub. Nancy was wonderful to work with and answered all questions we had quickly. We would absolutely stay here again!

The only potential negative is If you have a a difficult time with stairs this may not be the place for you as the bathroom and all bedrooms are on the second floor.

Owner's Response: I love camping as well, but a nice VRBO is also a great way to go. We travel extensively and have stayed in many vacation rentals. Our family really enjoys both forms of accommodations. I believe both forms are focused on spending quality time with your family. Vacations with your family are a great way to create lasting memories. That is why it is so important to me to make sure my vacation home is as comfortable, clean and well stocked with everything needed to make for an enjoyable time. I’m glad the house worked out so well for you. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family. Thank you for the wonderful review.

Map

Car: recommended

Our home is located in the quiet Riverside neighborhood of Duluth. It's just a few blocks from the Spirit Mountain Recreation Area, which has skiing, hiking, the Zip-line, and the Alpine Coaster. It's also located next to the Munger Trail, which is great for in-line skating, biking, walking, and snowmobiling and provides scenic views of the St. Louis River. Just down the street is a Marina and access to the Western Waterfront Trail. A perfect location for nature lovers, especially during the fall colors.

We are just minutes from downtown Duluth, Canal Park, the Aerial Lift Bridge, the Duluth Heritage Sports Center, Glensheen, Park Point, fantastic restaurants, shopping, public boat launches and the zoo.

Our newly renovated home offers you a tranquil place to relax after spending the day enjoying the beautiful outdoors. It includes a whirlpool tub to soften the muscles after a day of activity, a gas grill, sauna, a sunny enclosed front porch and a 50” TV for your enjoyment.

Other Activities: Snowmobiling, Frisbee Golf Courses, Dinner Cruise, Geo Caching

Ski: Skiing at Spirit Mountain is made so much easier. Our house is located near the bottom of Spirit Mountain. You can park at the bottom of the hill, just a few blocks from our house. Your walk to the lift is very short and you are on the hill in minutes. Our location makes your ski experience much more enjoyable.
