PARK POINT - DULUTH BEACH COTTAGE ON LAKE SUPERIOR - HISTORIC HOME

Duluth Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

'Cottage on the Point' is located on Lake Superior's grand Park Point beach with five miles of extraordinary sand. This historic home, built in the late 1880's, rumored to be a hunting lodge, is now completely restored. Remodeled and redecorated it is full of old Duluth charm and modern conveniences. The cottage is licensed as a vacation rental by the city of Duluth-permit #PL13-019

The cottage is three miles from the world famous aerial lift bridge and Canal Park activities. It is one and a half miles from the Park Point recreation area with sailing and boat launch facilities. The cottage is located in a residential neighborhood, with private beach access. Step back to a time when the pace was slower and relax in your own private beach cottage.

Park Point offers many wonderful activities and we are prepared to help you enjoy it with four kayaks, one aluminum canoe, two adult life vests and beach mats and towels. Come prepared to enjoy the sun, but if it should rain, you can enjoy the supply of videos, DVD's, games and books perfect for a relaxing vacation.

Don't miss a chance to rent this extraordinary home at a price below the cost of a hotel room or conduminum rental. You can have it all - three large bedrooms, large living room / great hall with gas fireplace, dining room, kitchen, laundry room, front porch, back porch, gas grill and of course the beach - all located in quiet neighborhood. It is the best Duluth has to offer and it is away from the crowds that are found at lakeside hotels and condumiums.

EXTRA BONUS: If you like psychological suspense novels, check out books by award winning author Brian Freeman (bfreemanbooks). Our historic beach cottage is featured in Freeman's third and fourth novels, featuring Jonathan Stride and Serena Dial. The forward reads: 'Much of this novel was conceived and researched in a rental cottage on Park Point in Duluth that bears suspicious similarity to the home now owned by Stride and Serena. Your can actually stay there yourself, or tour the home at cottageonthepoint.' Or just send in a VRBO inquiry now for your dates and see if you can enjoy this historic cottage for your vacation. Please note that this is a peaceful residential neighborhood. Loud parties and excessive drinking or substance use are not welcome.

The cottage was purchased as a personal residence. We converted it to a rental in 2005 and continue to give it the loving care it deserves. It is inspected and licensed as a vacation rental, meeting all requirements for your safety, health and comfort. Bill is a lifelong Duluthian and knows this area and the community extremely well. He is a great resource for information on this area as well as, the north shore, BWCA, and the Quetico. We love this area for the beauty and all the activites we enjoy - skiing, kayaking, biking, paddling and wilderness camping.

Pat Burns purchased this cottage in 1995

We both love Park Point, and live next to the cottage. The beach is peaceful and very quiet. At times we are the only people in our area down there. It is in a residential area and not near public beach areas. The beauty and serenity are so soulful and breathtaking. It is a great place for renewing one's spirit.

The cottage is loaded with old world charm - from the carved mahogany pillars to the built in china cabinet and reading nooks by the fireplace. It simply forces a slower pace. The front porch catches cool breezes and a great place to start the morning with a cup of coffee and a good book, while the back porch and deck are perfect as enclosed play area and a relaxing place to grill dinner. We provide four kayaks for use by our guests that allows a paddle on Lake Superior to explore the beauty of the lake. All to give an unforgettable experience and vacation needed in this fast paced world.

Very family friendly

My wife and I stayed with our 2 1/2 year old for three nights at the cottage. Having a toddler with a lot of food allergies make vacations tough. At the cottage, we have a HUGE and comfortable kitchen to make his meals and then walk to the beach to have fun. Pat is a great host and I would recommend the Beach Cottage to anyone.

Valentine Weekned Escape

We were so impressed with the property, not just the condition and readiness but more so all those extra touches that the owners provided in the kitchen, extra pillows & comforters in the bedroom and those amazing towels in the bath, usually the quality one only finds in 5 Star hotels.

As a former rental property owner, we really enojyed all the personal decor and touches that Pat & Bill placed in their home, that's what made this a truly wonderful experience. We highly recommend this to all and look forward to planning a summer escape where we don't have to hike through 3 feet deep snow to get to the beach !

What a gift!

I cannot say enough great things about this cottage. Location was fantastic: Right on the lake, but only a couple of miles from some great dining options in Duluth, as well as only a few blocks away from one of the best Christmas light displays I've ever seen, one that extended from the street all the way over the dune onto the beach. Cottage was great: very clean and well taken care of, well stocked with kitchen tools so my chef son was happy, gas fireplace which we used alot as the weather was very cold outside but we were toasty inside. The layout was great as the old folks could go to sleep early and the 20-somethings could stay up late by the fire and talk.

We enjoyed our Christmas holiday here very much but would love to come back in better weather as there is so much more to explore from this beautiful cottage.

The cottage was fantastic! It was clean and as described. The price was fantastic for the value. Lake views is a strech but maybe it is different in the summer. We had everything we needed at the home for making meals & being entertained. We will definately be coming again to stay! Thank you!!!

Welcoming, well planned cottage for a get away

  • Submitted: Oct 29, 2013

2 couples, a young adult, and a perfect get away. The cottage was clean and crisp and had been very well furnished and stocked. We were readily able to unpack and begin our activities. We felt welcome, secure, and comfortable. The cottage is much more spacious than we had expected from the pictures, it really was set up for our time together and our privacy as well.

The beach was a fun walk and is simply stunning- it is hard to imagine that you can be so remote so close to the city. Walks on the beach day and night were great.
