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.

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location just steps from the Park Point beach. We had a fun winter weekend dog sledding, ice skating at Bayfront Park, checking out the ice heaves, and cc skiing. The boys (9 and 7) loved the ping pong and foosball tables in the basement. Kitchen and family room are small but funtionally arranged. Older home with lots of character, tastefully decorated. Hosts were super easy to communicate with. Highly recommended!

Cold but Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house on Park Point on a very cold weekend in january. The house could not have been nicer. Very warm fireplace, and comfortable rooms. We did a very little cooking and everything was there that we might have needed and more.

Heather was very helpful and responsive, couldn't have been nicer.

Perfect house for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We took a quick post-Christmas getaway up to Duluth and this house was perfect! So quaint and homey and we loved cozying up with the fireplace in the living room while we played games at night. Perfect for our family of 4! Will definitely be back!
