About Heather Pitschka

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.

Heather Pitschka purchased this house in 2011

What makes this house 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 5 blocks away for the farthest inland port in the world.

You are 5 blocks 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!

Great Beach House Close to Downtown

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took the two young kids (<3) for the week and had a great time. Having the beach out the door was great and we could walk to everything downtown.

The interior of the house was great and the games downstairs were a big plus for our oldest.

Clean, beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this super clean home. Our kids, ages 7 and 4, loved the games and the beach. We enjoyed grilling and eating on the patio. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need, including some condiments.

We would highly recommend staying here for a relaxing weekend or a full week (or more!).

Perfect Park Point Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The beach house is a great location. Direct access to the beach and a lakefront deck make this a great place to stay--especially in the summer.

"Our House"

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for us. The property is very well-maintained, nicely appointed, and in a great location. We've rented here several times. Heather, the owner, is beyond amazing and couldn't be easier to work with. She has several rental houses in Park Point, so whether there are two of you or a whole family, there's a property that will work for you. Seriously, if you want to rent a nice house in Park Point, you can't go wrong renting from Heather...she's organized, helpful and friendly, and makes renting really easy!
