Welcome to the Duluth Hiker House, a city house for people who love the outdoors! Hike down to the lake on the Superior Hiking Trail, at the end of our block, or go mountain biking on trails in Hartley Park. The lake, Canal Park and downtown are just 10 minutes away.
At the end of your day, relax on our patio, warm up in front of the fireplace or luxuriate in the double whirlpool or steam shower of our delightful home.

The space
Our house feels a little bit like a cabin, with a loft that includes a master suite with a queen bed and a bath with stone-lined steam shower and a double whirlpool tub that overlooks the woods and a small stream.
The living room has a gas fireplace, high-definition smart TV and board games. The kitchen has a dishwasher, microwave and gas stove plus lots of cookware and serving dishes.
The lower level includes a sunny bedroom with a private entrance through the garage, a small adjoining study, a second bathroom with shower and a washer and dryer.
Like nearly every house in Duluth, we don't have air-conditioning because it's rarely needed. However, we do have fans for you to use.
There are patios with perennial gardens in front and also in the fenced side yard of our quarter-acre corner lot. We also have an attached garage where you can store mountain bikes or kayaks.

Where you’ll be

Duluth, Minnesota, United States

Our house is right off Woodland Avenue, three miles from the 21st Avenue East exit from I-35 and a 10-minute drive from Canal Park.
It's in a quiet residential neighborhood up the hill, where it's quite a bit warmer than the lakeshore.
In winter, it gets more snow, and there's cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in Hartley Park. Birders love Hartley and also the migrating birds that stop at the pond of Forest Hill Cemetery, next door.
We're between Hartley and two cemeteries, so there's a lot of wildlife traffic, including an occasional bear. In fall, deer come every night to eat the apples in our yard.
If you walk east from the end of our street, you can get to Hawk Ridge on the Superior Hiking Trail, and if you walk west, you can get to the Rose Garden, Canal Park and the great trail segments in West Duluth.
You can buy groceries at Mount Royal Market off Woodland Avenue, across from UMD, or at Woodland Market, a mile past our house.

My husband and I love the outdoors, especially hiking, bicycling, kayaking and cross-country skiing. Because Duluth is such a fantastic place to do those things, we bought a house and spent nearly every weekend there until we moved to Munich. Now, we want our guests to enjoy Duluth as much as we did (and still do, just not as often). The slogan for our online travel guide MidwestWeekends is "Life's too short to stay home.'' That's our personal slogan, too.
