I just spent a couple days undwinding with friends. We had a great time and were treated like royalty by the proprietors Glen and Helen. This old house is simply beautiful and feels like home. It immediately takes one back to a simpler time and approach to life. It's so close to Duluth and the Black Bear Casino that we... More

We were able to participate in the "Whoville 2012" festivities and enjoy local children choirs in addition to some famous musical artists--Billy Peterson and PipJazz. The back yard of the Oldenburg house has a trail directly into Jay Cooke State park; one of the most beautiful state parks... More

Helen and Glenn are the most loving of hosts and make every stay special. The grounds around the home are one of a kind. With direct access to the Munger Trail and Jay Cooke Park, it's like going to play again as a little kid. The stream that flows adjacent to the park hold some fabulous trout, the Munger Trail...

The Oldenburg House is reminiscent of the sweet & innocent days of my youth. The home and grounds look and feel like something out of a movie! The Swanson's were meet for this role. The rooms are just beautiful, the decor is perfect. Even a wrap around porch with a porch swing to match! A baby grand piano and great... More

Charming property on state park land with tons of outdoor activities. Hiking, biking, kayaking, etc. all available. Amazing views of waterfalls and river gorge just a few minutes walk away. Beautiful setting amongst majestic rock outcroppings. The beds were very comfortable and the hosts are very accomadating. I particularily enjoyed morning coffee on the enclosed porch overlooking the landscaped grounds.... More
