Wonderful Family Gathering Spot
From booking to checkout, we had the most wonderful experience! UMD graduation celebration for our son. We hosted a cookout after the ceremony and Hawthorn Manor was perfect!

Visit to Duluth for an award ceremony
The property was just as described, and very spacious!! My family, three families actually with children, had a great time. The beds were comfortable and everything was very clean. The neighborhood was very quiet and my daughter wished the weather had been better so she could walk the trail which is supposed to be a great trail.

We definitely enjoyed our stay at Hawthorne Manor. Had enough space for togetherness and activities without being on top of each other. Coffee in the sunroom, games in the living room, cards in the dining room. Very well stocked too - they thought of everything! Wouldn’t change a thing! Had a fun hike to Tischer Creek right in the neighborhood too! Wish the weather would have been a smidge nicer because the deck looked nice! P.S. One of our party knew a previous owner of the property and they stopped over to see all the improvements and were very impressed!

Wonderful stay!
We had a group of gals all together for a weekend at the Hawthorne House and it was wonderful! Very cool looking home and was very clean. Great communication regarding checking in and out. Also we were allowed an early check in which was super nice since some people were from out of town/state. Overall a very great experience!

Home Away From Home
We had a wedding in Duluth, and rented Hawthorne Manor for the extended family. It became our home base and was a perfect place for the family to relax. The house has a lot of spaces to connect as a group or provide privacy to spend time alone. Theresa as a host was amazing and immediately answered when I had questions. This is definitely a place we would rent again.
