Historic Duluth Building Converted Into Luxurious Vacation Rental With Panoramic Views Of Lake Superior
Many residents and Duluth visitors alike have spent some time walking along the Lakewalk, tracing the outline of Lake Superior's shoreline in Duluth. The trail offers great views and easy access to many Canal Park and Duluth area attractions, including food, beverages, and shopping at the Fitger's complex and nearby Lakewalk staples Portland Malt Shoppe and Va Bene Cafe.
Right in the same neighborhood, between Portland Malt Shoppe and Va Benne, is a building that was once home to a business. Living Art Studio, a tattoo shop that moved to the Woodland neighborhood, is what could be seen from Superior Street while passing by.
While there hasn't looked to be a lot of activity on the Superior Street side of the building (seen above) since they left, I noticed what looked like some nice living space through the windows on the lake side of the building and decided to investigate.
The natural brick building with the deck in the photo above is the one in question. Turns out, this place is a nice VRBO vacation rental that offers incredible views of Lake Superior and Canal Park, along with upscale quarters to enjoy while on vacation.
With easy walking access to Fitger's, Duluth's historic arts and entertainment district, the Lakewalk, and Canal Park, this place has a lot to offer anyone vacationing in Duluth. Then, add in the stunning views you get, perched atop the wall that runs along the Lakewalk, and whether you stay in or go out, this place is incredible!
The VRBO listing for this vacation rental says it will sleep up to 6 people. It features 2 full baths and 1 half bath, a kitchen, living room, and a balcony, all of which offer great views that you'll see in the images below.
The owners refer to this place as "Odin at The Njord", or "Odin is Heaven". The building itself was built in 1933, but has since been renovated to offer this classy, upscale living space that respects the historic nature of the building.
