“Hello, I just wanted to send a note of gratitude and much appreciation! A bunch of us from high school stayed at your cabin on Scenic Drive this past weekend. We had an absoluste blast!!! Your cabin and amenities were fantastic. We couldn’t have asked for anything more. The lake scene and the distance from Duluth were just perfect. I have traveled a lot because of work but this was definitely worth the travel! Thank you for all you did for us…”

“Just wanted to drop you a note and tell you that we loved the cabin. We had a wonderful week !!! The weather was perfect and so was the cabin. I am a neat/clean nut and was thrilled to find the cabin spotless. We loved the deck and took full advantage of it. The whirlpool tub was great! We are definitely renting the cabin again and sincerely hope that it stays in the excellent condition that it is in currently.”

“Hi Bill and family–I wanted you to know how much my family and I enjoyed our week at the cabin. For us, it was a near-perfect spot. We’ve been to the north shore several times over the past years and truly love the lake shoreline. The area is so unspoiled by commercial development, slick mega-condo-units, or touristy attractions. As a dairy farmer, my husband seldom has a day, let alone a week, to relax–and so we wanted more than anything to find a quiet, pretty, private, hastle-free place for our family vacation. How delighted we were to find your lovely, comfortable lake home–where we could sleep late in peace and quiet, sit on the deck and watch the ducks, loons and ore boats, hunt for rocks on the shore, throw and hit softballs in the yard, grill out in the evening (then load the dishes in the dishwasher!) read and watch TV till time to sit on the deck to watch the moon reflect over the lake–and then begin again the next day. In addition your yard was a joy to wander about in. I can still see the orange wildflowers, the yellow lilies, the pink peonies, the purple spikes, the forest area, the shoreline wild growth–it all was simply beautiful.”

—Jennifer and Tim Cantine, Iowa


Bill, We had a great time at the cabin and it was worth every penny of it, it was a nice break for us all and we got a lot of family bonding in, which was amazing!
Below is some of the feedback from my other family members:

Very nice.. Home-y place. Would definitely go back. The cottage included…like games, movies, blankets, kitchen supplies…outdoor CHAIRS. All in all was definitely a blast.

Wonderful place, very accommodating…secluded and peaceful…would totally go back!

Thanks for letting us rent it and next year we plan on doing then same.

Take care

We loved the house and the location. It had plenty of room for the 11 family members. We could all be together and yet still find privacy when we need a break from the group.

The kitchen was perfect. Well stocked with pots and pans, etc. we cooked every meal in. The beds where very comfortable. Loved the wi-fi. We used it for entertainment, work, and looking up things to do in Duluth. Nice roomy house. The beach was perfect!

I will rent it again sometime and definitely with recommend it to our friends.

“Thank you Bill! We had a great time and your place exceeded our expectaions! We were a little unsure since we found it over the internet, but you thought of everything. We loved having all the conveniences of home with a beautiful view! Thanks for everything!”

—Carla


We had a wonderful time. The proximity to canal park was perfect but we still felt out on our own at the beach. We are alreay talking about a return trip next year. We ended up with seven people coming and had plenty of room.

I wanted to take a few minutes before I leave your lovely home on Minnesota Ave in Duluth. The view out the windows of the lake this morning is so fantastic!! Once again  this year my siblings and I  had a really fantastic time here.  Your home is comfortable and  has most anything  we need. Your new screen door is great, as is the  new table and chairs. We were glad to see the new air-conditioner in the living room as the weather has been hot  while we stayed here.
This is  a really great place to stay! Thanks so much.
