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.

Fabulous! We had such a great time!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect setup of bedrooms, baths and living area for our women’s hockey team to enjoy the Duluth tournament. Great Team bonding over a taco dinner and watching the High school boys championship game on TV. We really enjoyed the location and it’s close proximity to downtown, the lake and UMD. Waking up to the quiet of the North Shore, walking down the hill for coffee and then along the lake, enjoying local restaurants, or stretching/practicing yoga in the sun room and/or exercise room all added to our wonderful experience. Definitely would VRBO here again for next year’s tournament.

Wonderful setting for our 2018 AAA (Anderson Annual Adventure)

  • 5 of 5

From the youngest (20) to the oldest (91) we had a great weekend with the women of the Anderson family. Hawthorne Manor was a very enjoyable place to stay.

Beautiful winter retreat!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay with large family. No issues what so ever and we were in the house during two large snowstorms! Perfect winter setting. We enjoyed snowshoeing in Congdon Park (beautiful winter setting!), sitting by the fire, and exploring this awesome house and city. Thank you very much for sharing your home.

Awesome home! Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in the mansion. Has a ton of space, characterand is very comfortable. The master bedroom is great along with attached bathroom. Kitchen had everything we needed. Lots of cozy spots for cards or whatever. Nature hike is a must from the park next to property, but is very slippery in the winter. 10$ uber rides into canal park so very convenient location.

Grand, beautiful, and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect! We had a group of 11 girls and there was tons of room for everyone to have their own space. The house is absolutely beautiful and so well stocked with everything we needed. I will definitely rent this place again!

Looking for a great family time or unique friend outing for winter? Check out www.outdooredventures.org for sliegh rides, dog sledding and ice climbing. Great way to capture winter fun...but then head back to the Hawthorne Manor and cozy up to the fire with a warm cup of cocoa.
