Our home is located in the Kenwood neighborhood of Duluth. On the main thoroughfare on top of the hill. You are 10 minutes from anywhere you need to be whether it is shopping at the mall or canal park. This also means there is traffic and can be traffic noise. I have fans in the rooms and heavy shades and curtains but some people have mentioned the noise in private messages so I just want to be accurate although I mention it in "Neighborhood" too. In our back yard, Lake Superior Hiking Trail!

The space

Price includes 11.75% tax and cleaning fees so no extra charges. Our quaint, cozy home, (not a Bed and Breakfast, not a Hotel, but a home which we live in), is in Duluth's Kenwood neighborhood on the main thoroughfare on the top of the hill in Duluth. We are just 10 minutes from the lake, downtown, canal park or the mall AND NOW DULUTH HAS UBER! The main floor has a fully equipped gourmet kitchen which you're welcome to use-- full access to the main floor, decks and hot tub --2 cozy bedrooms -- great queen sized beds with nice linens-- You will find we have dressers where we shouldn't have, and things in closets, because we have children and grand children who stay with us at times so much of their games and toys are here too. If you are looking for a B&B or a hotel, then we are the wrong place for you. If you don't mind sharing our space you are more than welcome here! I keep my home as clean as possible but we are not ready to start getting rid of stuff yet so our home is set up like a home...Price is for 1-2 people, 3+ will pay $50 extra for each person up to 6 max. Air mattresses available upon request for larger groups. Kids free. Pack-n-play available upon request.

Guest access

If we needed to be home, we would have our own private entrance and would only see you if you wanted to interact. The main floor office, and basement area are our personal space and will be locked.

Interaction with guests

We will be sure our guests have what they need to be comfortable and enjoy their time in Duluth! We are available by phone or text any time, day or night, and have a neighbor enlisted to help if anything pressing arises and you cannot reach us.

Other things to note

I am very easy going and way too trusting so I was forced to put these rules in by people who did not respect my neighbors. Please be respectful. If you are on the deck or in the hot tub, remember, there are neighbors, and there is a time of night to quiet down and/or move it inside. 11pm on weeknights and 1 am on weekends. You are more than welcome to have a good time just understand my neighbors are instructed to call immediately if you break these rules, first call will result in a warning, a second call will result in loss of use of our home. Neighbors will be allowed to evict.
Smoking allowed on the decks, sorry I'm allergic so no pets...

Great place with a beautiful kitchen and fantastic outdoor space. The hot tub was wonderful on a cool fall evening. The house has everything you need and more, and Dan was very responsive. As the listing states, it's on a busier street, so if you're a light sleeper, keep that in mind. However, there are fans in both bedrooms and room darkening shades in one, so we had no issue sleeping in the comfy beds. Would definitely stay here again!

All the comforts of home are provided in this wonderful space so generously shared by Daniel and Shelley. Their communications were prompt, clear and helpful. Every amenity was available and easy to use thanks to their clear instructions. The home itself is lovingly decorated in a warm and inviting style and was exceptionally clean. The kitchen was well stocked and wonderful to work in - my college student really appreciated the chance to have some home cooked meals. And the hot tub - a wonderful luxury on a cool night with the starry heavens to view! Staying here was an excellent experience all around.

Our new first choice when vacationing in Duluth. It offers so much more than a hotel, I felt at home and welcomed by Dan and Shelley without ever even meeting them! They really go above and beyond to ensure you are comfortable in their home and never bored. We used the hiking trails behind their house (literally you can walk right into amazing hiking trails that we explored most of Saturday), and the Hot Tub was a great way to relax after! Also, when you check in you will get access to a booklet of information written by the hosts with accurate restaurant recommendations to help you plan out your food. This was my first Airbnb experience (we travel to Duluth bi-annually at a minimum) and I will probably never go back to using the big hotels in canal park. I felt like I got so much more for my money here. I give La Dolce Vita my highest recommendation and am already planning on trying to make another trip soon!

Thank you Amy, if you plan a long way out just contact me personally so I can open the dates for you. I do not let people book more than 3 months in advance, but I can if I like them :)

Staying at La Dolce Vita was incredible! Dan and Shelley have perfected the art of the AirBnB. From their detailed guide of the home and the area, to the towels and toiletries provided, and the food and drink they shared, everything was warm and welcoming. Their attention to detail was meticulous and it made for a fantastic weekend.

My wife and I moved to Duluth 25+ years ago to start our own business and raise our family. We were married young, raised family and are now enjoying life to the fullest. Well, the kids are gone and the dog has died, so life is good! We enjoy good food, good beverages and good company. (not to mention our 4 grand kids) We enjoy our home but have also have a lake home so our thought is, why not let others enjoy our home and beautiful town. We do not stay when we have guests unless absolutely necessary, which is very seldom, but if we do have the pleasure of enjoying your company, it will be our pleasure. We will do our best to make our home a La Dolce Vita (the sweet life) experience.
We take pride in our home and will make sure everything you could ask for or need be available to you before you need ask. We keep frosty mugs in the freezer and Glassware for every type beverage, dishware and silverware for every need. Our home is a home, where you feel comfortable and feel like you belong. It's the kind of home you can go to for the first time for Thanksgiving, and actually fall asleep after you enjoy your feast. Our design is family and love. You will see evidence of both all over our home.
