About The Owner

Steve and I (Heather) have lived in Duluth for the past 20 and 15 years respectively. We call it home now and have a tough time seeing ourselves living elsewhere. Lake Superior has a draw and we've been mesmerized since moving here. We both love the water and spend a significant amount of our free time surfing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing and fishing. Both of us have caught a muskie out of our canoe a stone's throw away from our house on Minnesota Point. We've also been able to surf every month of the year! Although I'd recommend a wet suit Fall/Winter/Spring. We love this area and always look forward to coming home when we've gone on vacation.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2001

Why The Owner chose Park Point

Actually the vacation home is Steve's first home. He spent much of his free time repairing/refinishing. It is furnished with antiques handed down in our family that Steve refinished. We were unable to part with it when we moved to our new home less than a mile away so we turned it into a vacation rental home in 2010.

What makes this cottage unique

You'll have direct access to the largest freshwater lake in the WORLD (Lake Baikal in Russia is largest by volume, Lake Superior is largest by surface area)!

You are less than one mile away for the farthest inland port in the world.

You are less than one mile away from one of the largest lift bridges in the United States. There you can view Ocean and Great Lake ships from less than 100 feet as they enter and leave the port.

Minnesota Point is surrounded by water and the Aerial Lift Bridge is the only point of access by land. You are essentially on a island!

Steve lived in this house for several years and knows you have great neighbors!

If you want shopping, coffee, antiques they are less than 1 mile down the road over the Aerial Lift Bridge. You can also make the walk on sandy beach.

Great place to stay while seeing the sites in Duluth.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fun reunion with old friends in this wonderfully updated older house with access to the beach. Only downside was parking ticket for parking in front of the house, but Heather offered to pay the unjustified ticket.

Just the spot for our annual boys trip

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time! We had 6 of us this year for our "boys" trip. The location was perfect for some golf and some time at the beach. It worked out great when we decided to stick around the house as well, especially the upper deck. Many great chats and long nights up there. Six of us fit in here pretty well, might have been a little tricky with more of us.

Loved the house! Would love to stay here again

  • 5 of 5

Great location! Our family enjoyed being so close to the beach but also to Canal Park. The house is beautiful - an appropriate balance of both charm and updates.
