Duluth house description

Here's what our guests have been saying... 'We were so surprised at the beauty and peacefulness of the house and view.' 'Classy, sophisticated, and well-maintained.' 'We're ready to move in!' 'All the comforts of home plus the big lake.' 'Every time we turn a corner or open a drawer we see your great taste and thoughtfulness.' ' A quiet place of respite and calm.' 'A wonderful retreat!' 'Thoughtful design and accoutrements.' 'Stunning yard!' 'The view is unmatched.' 'The opportunities to have a terrific stay are endless.'

Located on Park Point, our Carriage House is just twelve blocks from Duluth’s city center, six blocks from the Aerial Bridge, and a short beach walk from Canal Park.

Lake Superior and five miles of sandy beach sit at your doorstep, perfect for beachcombing, sandcastles, and keeping an eye on ship and boat traffic. Runners, walkers, rollerbladers and bikers love Park Point for its even terrain and eclectic mix of architecture, and when the snow flies, put on your snowshoes or cross country skis and head out on a scenic trek along the lakeshore. Or, settle in to a comfortable armchair and watch the surfers, kayakers and windsurfers catching Lake Superior waves right out your window (even during snowstorms!). Enjoy watching the sun and moon rise from the lakeside living room and set from your bayside bedroom.

Feel like cooking? Our fully equipped gourmet kitchen has everything you need to whip up a casual meal or pull out all the stops and create a Thanksgiving feast for six or a romantic anniversary dinner for two.

If you're in the mood to explore, a wonderful mix of restaurants, movie theaters, museums, galleries, antique stores, coffee bars and locally owned shops can be found just across the bridge in the historic Canal Park area. Duluth’s popular Lakewalk begins in Canal Park and takes you past several Duluth landmarks, including the Rose Gardens and Leif Erickson Park. When you’re ready to relax, head back to your house on the beach ~ there’s no better place to unwind. Once you discover our Park Point Carriage House, you won’t want to leave.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: The Park Point Carriage House is owned and operated by husband and wife team Jerry (goldsmith, retired community college teacher, sailor) and Betsy (former co-owner of gourmet store in Canal Park, wannabe artist, Carriage House gardener).

                      Why the Owner Chose Duluth:
                      We had the opportunity to buy the house next door, tear it down and have a garage for the first time. It just didn't make economic sense to buy a waterfront lot for just a garage.... so the plans changed and changed and changed and the garage turned into a vacation rental carriage house. We are loving the opportunity to share the house, the view and our favorite town, Duluth.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We know the view and the area well, having owned the house next door for thirty eight years. The view changes from day to day and hour to hour. We never tire of looking out over the lake, seeing the horizon and knowing that all the rest of the world is way out there beyond our view, and beyond our concern for that moment.
