I used to live in Duluth and much of my family is still there. Park Point brings back memories of the past every time I go there. Great beach and, depending on the wind that day, water temps in the 70's-80 degrees.

Has both direct beach access and a view of Superior Bay.

Fun for All

This was our second time staying in this wonderful cottage on Park Point. Family and friends ages 24 – 70 all had a wonderful time. We walked the island and enjoyed the flowers. We sat on the balcony every morning with coffee and enjoyed the bay. Lake Superior was so crystal clear that even the Floridians among us enjoyed a swim.

We were having such a good time that we got a little loud one night. In the morning we apologized to the next door neighbor, Charlie. Charlie responded that he enjoyed hearing the laughter, that meant everyone was having a good time. Charlie even brought over homemade salsa and fresh corn.

We drove into Canal Park, a five minute drive, where we indulged in the restaurants, shops, and breweries. We also spent time in close by Enger Park. Several times we took a trip up the North Shore to enjoy lake views from Two Harbors, Gooseberry Falls, Split Rock, and Palisade Head.

The cabin is roomy, well situated, and more than met our expectations. The property description is accurate and the neighborhood is beautiful, beachy and friendly

We love this place and hope to come back again.

Six of girls just returned from a girls weekend our ages are from 35 to 65 so location and fun stuff around us was a must which this cabin had everything for location. The beach was very nice could maybe clear the walking path a little better. We did not have a good time with a very "mean neighbor". Three of the girls started a fire at 7 pm in what was already a fire pit on the beach the neighbor we think lived two doors down came down and yelled put the fire out and said that the landlord of our cabin is a liar it was just very un called for his behavior even pointing his figure in my 65 year old mother face... than he left and decided to call the cops on our "little fire" which she was a very nice lady I have a feeling it was not the first time she got a call from that neighbor. I really liked the cabin very nice and clean but couple of things to think about six women four days only two rolls of toliet paper had to take trip to walmart. Also we where half way down grilling our dinner then the propane ran out.

Owner's Response: I am glad that I can address this issue. The beach all along Park Point is the City of Duluth Park property and it is illegal to have fires on the beach (Duluth City Ord. 35-7. Setting fires prohibited). When I grew up in Duluth, it was common to do it, but not allowed by the park's code. Many of the residents on the Point will have fires and you can see them dotting the beach if you go out there. I have neighbors several houses down on both side who are "on fire" about the fires. According to the Duluth Police Officer who is the community liaison for the Point, it has become a problem with many of the vacation rentals, especially those that are closer to the bridge where the houses are closer to the beach and they have been contacting owners to get the message out to renters to not have fires on the beach. I considered having a fire pit on the property, but if the smoke bothered the neighbors, that would lead to another call by the police and the renters would be required to put the fire out. Until the ordinance changes, we sit on the deck and watch the bay. Last July, a group of us took advantage of some warm water and swam at the beach until almost 10pm (sans fire).

With regard to the toilet paper, I had a person filling in for the regular cleaning person, who normally puts out a spare roll in each bathroom. I will get word to her the next time she fills in. I'm glad to hear that she did a good job cleaning besides that.

I've thought about putting a spare tank of propane, but realized that during the summer someone would be stuck with two empty tanks in the middle of grilling. The best I can do is provide the tank and reimburse renters for replacements.

This property is deceitfully advertised and the present condition makes it very overpriced. It was very dirty, many broken fixtures ,leaky faucet, false advertising as to extra sleeping area,gazebo, This was a very musty area and the sofa bed unuseable. Totally unkept from inside out. The yard hasn't been cared for probabably the season. Not very much positive except it does have potential to be a lovely property.Right now it just looks to be an abandon piece of property collecting way too much for rent.
Owner's Response: We are very sorry you did not enjoy your stay and have evaluated the property based on your comments and made the necessary improvements. As you can tell by our previous responses, we have worked hard to make this property a good place to stay.

We spent a wonderful week at the Cottage on Park Point with three generations of family and friends and loved every minute. The cabin location is ideal. It is in a relaxed quiet beach community yet close to Canal Park restaurants and a short drive to hiking at Gooseberry Falls and breath taking views at Split Rock. Every morning we sat on the deck drinking coffee and watching bicyclers, joggers, and kayakers on Superior Bay. Every evening we walked down the wooded path to the beach to enjoy the Lake Superior Shore.
The cabin is roomy, comfy, and fully stocked with dishes, sheets, towels, and more. The cabin also comes with great neighbors. We plan to go back next year just so we can get some more of Charlie’s homemade salsa!
