The house is clean, beautiful, spacious and appears to be recently remodeled. Ample light through large windows in the downstairs kitchen/dining area. A very large upstairs living room with attached reading nook. The 2 Bedrooms are immense and beds are very comfortable. If the weather supports it, the deck is precious for relaxing/reading although it does overlook a somewhat busy street below. It was not hard for me to tune out traffic. A gentle word of caution on the interior stairs as they are slippery when wearing socks and somewhat steep. You will also need to come up a flight of stairs from the outside to enter the property. Those with knee troubles are advised.
In the surrounding area, the property is only 2 blocks from the Lake Walk, a 4-mile or so bike path along Lake Superior. Great vantages to catch sunrise over the lake are there. In the opposite direction, 3 blocks away is Chester Park which gives you the sense of walking in a deep forest with cascading stream but, in the heart of the city! If you are of the walking or cycling type, downtown restaurants/shops/breweries,etc. are only a mile away by street or the Lake Walk. Too many other beautiful natural areas to name are within short driving distance. All in all it was a perfect home-base for us for the diverse blend of activities that we enjoy.
