My husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay here on a recent overnight in Duluth. We drove up at night to the stately mansion that was lit up and snow-covered. We have often seen these types of homes from the outside, but have never had the opportunity to stay in one. The decor was very tasteful (not overly frilly) and we enjoyed a suite with a sitting room complete with fireplace, and an adjoining bedroom with king-sized poster bed and bathroom with vintage fixtures. Our host was friendly and gave us an excellent restaurant suggestion for dinner. In the morning we were treated to a tasty breakfast of a yogurt parfait, waffle and sausage. We greatly enjoyed the other couple we had breakfast with, and we lingered for 2 hours of conversation with them.
Our only negative as that there was no channel directory for the satellite TV in the bedroom (at least we couldn't find it). It would be a nice addition to add that to the rooms. If you have always wanted to stay in an elegant mansion, this is the one for you!
