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 Duluth

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

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great rental for a big group. We really enjoyed the space, especially the big table where we played games for hours. The house had everything we needed. I would recommend this rental. We hope to come back during the summer!

As always, a great stay!

Our 8th stay, and they have all been great. We love the amenities that are there every time, and searching out what is new and different. Great house and cottage, and a great location.

great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Duluth - spending most of our time content on the premises. The House and second cottage provided ample space and the walk to the beach and lake is short and the views once you get their breath taking. The grand children absolutely loved playing in the sand, looking at the ships, and finding rocks and sticks!

It POURED all day on Saturday so we enjoyed putting together puzzle as a family on the huge table in the dining room. Just simple fun time being together.

Lovely beach house almost in the city

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable and charming place, with lots of space for our multi-generational family gathering, including 3 nice bathrooms plus a good kitchen and spacious dining room with lots of chairs. We kept jigsaw puzzles going on the kitchen table and used the breakfast bar and dining room for meals when we weren't picnicking. Best beds are the house (2 Queen bedrooms plus 2 Twins in trundle in open loft space) but bunks and double bed in the small cottage out back worked fine for our 20-something boys. Short hike over the dunes to the sandy beach, and an easy walk over the lift bridge to Canal Park, fun during the day and evening. Relaxed and relaxing place to stay - loved the mix of modern and vintage furnishings, rag rugs and contemporary art. The main house has two nice bathrooms upstairs - we were glad to have the first-floor bathroom in the little cottage during the day for young children and old grandparents.

Perfect, easy get away

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful beach, nice, clean accommodations. Easy to get to, close to everything. Only problem we had was there were several light bulbs that were burnt out in the cabin, which is only a slight annoyance. We would definitely stay here again
