Other Things to Note
We have a wonderful sauna and a beautiful gazebo! The gazebo has a a chess game or comfortable furniture to just enjoy the quiet and calming sounds of the trees rustling as the huge evergreens surround our home.
We wouldn't expect any guest to go through our closets or drawers in our main living space. If Guests need to borrow something or wanted first aid items, cold med, toothbrush, etc...we are happy to provide these amenities that may have forgotten at home. A guest can certainly smoke outside but we do not smoke. We do have 2 labrador retrievers FYI in case of allergies.We can not have Guest's pets, who are normally trained, because they like to "mark" their territory & keep having accidents so...we are so sorry but we can't accommodate pets of Guests. Our dogs will not be allowed in your suite(anywhere in your living area) while you are there.
Duluth, MN is 5 minutes away, Bayfield, WI about 1 1/2 h away, Brule River 30 min away, & our home is on Lake Superior altho on the upper side (not lakefront) and off street parking in driveway.
Diane and Loren were excellent hosts! They are a very friendly couple who certainly seem to enjoy having guests, but were also great about giving us privacy. The accommodations were very comfortable, with just about anything you could possibly need on hand including a private sauna! Good muffins for breakfast as well. No complaints here, we felt like we were staying with family (in a good way.)
Loren and Diane are wonderful hosts! The space is fantastic in a quiet neighborhood, but still close enough to everything we wanted to see and do. Our goal was a quiet, laid-back visit to Duluth...no pressures with deadlines or watching the clock. The deck and gazebo area are lovely. We were blessed with wonderful weather the entire time we were in Duluth. The sauna was a wonderful bonus. Diane gave us many recommendations on restaurants and things to do. They had a great selection of movies to watch - in our personal home theater environment. Thanks again, Diane and Loren!
Diane and Loren made us feel at home. We had the whole basement to ourselves and everything was as described– clean, comfortable, and cozy. We would definitely recommend their place.
Enjoyed staying in Diane & Loren's basement apartment for a night on our way through the Duluth area. Loren provided a helpful run through of all of the amenities of the room upon arrival and was available throughout our stay. Only met Diane on our way out, but both were so helpful and friendly-- even sending us on our way with snacks! Thanks for a great stay.
It was a quick stay. Came in late and left very early. In spite of that Loren was a great host. He offered the sauna, recommended a place for dinner.
more than I had hoped for!
