Great Location, Fun Property, Comfy Home

  • 5 of 5

Being an artist and designer myself, I truly appreciated the clever yet practical things, not to mention the art, that the owners of this home did to enlarge and decorate this once tiny abode. I also appreciated the comforts and conveniences that the owners provide for their guests. I will rent this home again if I can find a time on their calendar that is not booked!!

We were there February 11-14 and despite the snow and cold at the time we were warm and cozy. We took the snowy trail through the back yard to the dunes and the lake. What a treat! While they say that the home sleeps 11 (and certainly between the house and the cottage there are plenty of beds) this was perfect for 3 people, everyone getting their own bedroom and bathroom. Even better for 2 people with a nice old dog.

My favorite room was the dining room and you will have to book it to get a look. And those memory foam beds upstairs, well that was a big surprise. Enough said. Good luck finding a date for your own visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sue for such a detailed review our our sweet getaway on the sandy shores of Duluth! I often wonder how many times "small groups" skip past our property when looking for a place to stay. We have one couple who has been staying with us for the past five years, I think they stayed with us seven times last year! I'm hoping you can be our next most popular guest!

Great Place

  • 4 of 5

Me and my brothers go here every year during the winter. We love being up in Duluth just to get away for awhile. This is a comfortable and cozy house with everything you need. It's easy to drive into town. I personally always sleep in the cabin out back.

Rustic and Eclectic with nice modern bathrooms and kitchen.

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable, rustic and eclectic. Comfortable beds and although the main house only has two bedrooms it can handle a crowd and sleep 10 -14 with the “Duneside” Cabin and futons and three bathrooms. Direct access to the beach and a reasonable walk to Canal Park. On a cold January night we appreciated all the games and 3 flat screens with DVDs.

Great for extended family groups.

Relaxing and fun!

  • 5 of 5

This stay exceeded my expectations. We booked the home to share a traditional American Thanksgiving with some friends visiting from Germany who had never celebrated this holiday and who had never seen Lake Superior. We prepared an entire meal and enjoyed it together around the dining room table. Clean, uniquely decorated, and very charming. Would definitely stay there again. Had everything we needed and then some. Loved watching the sun rise on Lake Superior.

About Bill Michels

We are a Twin Cities architect and artist who are always thrilled to spend family time in Duluth. The House and Cottage on Park Point is our little place away from home to do that. We have enjoyed remodeling and updating the house and cottage and turning it into a comfortable home with a relaxing livable atmosphere. It's given us the opportunity to do something a little different that we can share with everyone else.

Bill Michels purchased this house in 2005

Why Bill Michels chose Park Point

The beach is like nothing else in this part of the country, it's like being at the ocean. The water is warm enough to swim in, you can walk forever, and the infamous MN mosquito's are practically non existent because of the breezes off the lake. It's certainly a bonus to be a 15 minute walk down the beach to Canal Park or a short drive to the North Shore of Lake Superior.

What makes this house unique

We are just a bit unique in that there are two units we rent together. Put the kids in one or even grandma if she prefers to have her own quarters. Sometimes it's just a fight to see who gets the cottage!

And of course the location- beach, Canal Park, Lake Superior, the North Shore, restaurants...!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Bill,Just wanted to let you know....Anyhow that is a gorgeous place, it was the coolest design and decorating, I fell in love with it. I just wanted you to know that you did an excellent job, I felt like it was from a magazine. Thank you for letting us stay in your rental and for letting us bring our pets. We had a great time, and will tell everyone about the greatest place in Duluth. Thanks again.Megan
