This is a true get away! The apartment offers a country feel within a 10 minute radius of shopping, restaurants and the University Campus. We are tall and lean, and found the Ikea furniture uncomfortably low for our long legs. However, the futon was extremely comfortable for sleeping. Loved having the windows open at night, and hearing the creek flow . We found the experience so relaxing compared to a motel. Our favorite thing is the lush green trees, privacy, and the creek setting.

Beautiful setting and perfect location. We stayed with our two young daughters and it was very nice putting them to bed but being able to stay up and have a beer after long days of hiking!

Excellent choice. highlights: wonderful leafy garden with own brook running through and breakfast table. The apartment is very bright and has everything what travellers may want (fast internet included). Angie suggested dinner at 'Northern Waters' right by and we loved it so much that we came back three times. A couple of hiking options are within walking distance.

This is a lovely place to stay while you visit Duluth. It's in a nice, quiet neighborhood, and close to everything. The apartment is cozy, peaceful, and equipped with everything you will need. We loved our stay!

Angie and Danny's place was the perfect spot for our Duluth getaway! Close to downtown (10 min drive) and nestled in a quiet neighborhood, their place offered all the comforts of a home away from home! The apartment was clean, well-organized and had plenty of space for 2-4 guests. Check-in and check-out was straightforward and they were easy to contact about any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again!

Angie And Danny User ProfileAngie And Danny is a superhost.

We have appreciated great hospitality when we have traveled- from staying on the abandoned floor of a restaurant in Istanbul, setting up our tent in Charlie's backyard in Costa Rica, sharing yak butter tea before bed in Tibet, picking pomegranates at a seven generations old ranch in the Arizona wilderness, and plenty of couch surfing coast to coast. We want to return the favors.

We landed in Duluth after living in the Northwest and Southwest to be closer to family, but could only imagine living in Duluth because of the access to outdoor recreation, progressive community, and natural beauty.

Angie does applied theatre work in the community, working with nonprofit organizations using theatre to help them meet their missions in creative ways.

Danny teaches environmental and outdoor education at UMD and volunteers with a variety of nonprofit organizations serving youth and families in the Duluth area.

Our kids, ages 7 and 9 play outside a lot, they like donuts, collect pokemon cards, concoct potions, conduct experiments, fight sometimes, and make us laugh.

We love hosting people because people are interesting. We learn and grow and become better people because of the time we spend with others.
