Other Things to Note
We have a wonderful sauna and a beautiful gazebo! The gazebo has a hookup for our guests iphone for their music or just enjoy the quiet and calming sounds of the trees rustling as the huge evergreens surround our home to make it seem more private than it is.
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 they may have forgoten at home. A guest can certainly smoke outside but we do not smoke. We do have 2 labrador retrievers FYI in case of allergies but it Guest's pets, who are normally trained, like to "mark" their territory & keep having accidents so...we are so sorry but we can't accommodate pets of Guests.
This was my second time staying with Diane and Loren. They are absolutely fantastic and I cannot recommend them enough. The house is fantastic, I love the area they live in and they are the most hospitable people I've ever met. You will not be disappointed if you stay with them.
Diane and Loren accommodated us short notice in their great home. The house was easy to find, and the room was in the basement, consisting of a tv, sofa area, amazing wood burning fireplace, bedroom, bathroom and private sauna. Clean and comfy, this airbnb experience will be hard to beat!
I loved this place! Pictures don't do justice in any way. Beautifully setup, warm for winter and very nice hosts. Close by to Duluth and any other amenities. Lovely bed, fireplace and bath. Will surely visit again and definitely recommend it to my friends. Loved their dogs too . Thank you Loren & Diane.
This is one of the best AirBnb rentals I have stayed in. The space is much larger than I anticipated, the bed was very comfortable and the wood stove provided a nice and toasty warm environment. There were a lot of amenities that I really appreciated, such as coffee and breakfast in the morning, beer and wine in the evening, your own living area with cable TV, a desk to work, a kitchenette area with a fridge, microwave and breakfast bar style dining table.
Diane and Loren were very hospitable and welcoming hosts and have an excellent accommodation set-up in the lower level of their home for anyone visiting Duluth and Superior. I especially appreciate being able to practice (musician here) without disturbing anyone, something I wouldn't be able to do in a hotel room! I really hope to have the opportunity to rent from them again.
We had a great stay with Diane and Loren in the their their cabin in the basement. We were greeted warmly and welcomed into their home. The cabin in the basement was very clean, super comfortable and wonderfully decorated. Diane and Loren thought of everything to make our stay a wonderful experience! We really enjoyed coming back to a warm fire in the wood stove after a cold day spent outside. There is also a sauna that Loren offered to have ready for us on our return in the evening. Delicious muffins, coffee and hot chocolate in the morning and nicely stocked mini bar in the evening. They also have two well behaved sweet dogs. I don't think they ever barked while we were there. We will be making more trips to the area and plan on staying with Diane and Loren again!
This will not be my only stay at the Erickson's! Their "cabin in the basement" is so cozy! The wood stove and sauna are both a real treat. Every morning, there was fresh coffee and muffins for us to enjoy and we loved just lounging around. The bedroom and bathroom are great and the two of us had plenty of space. Diane and Loran are the sweetest and we can't wait to visit again! Very close to Duluth and other hot spots in Superior.
