Steve and I (Heather) have lived in Duluth for the past 17 and 12 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.

Heather Pitschka purchased this house in 2011

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 5 blocks away for the farthest inland port in the world.

You are 5 blocks 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!

GREAT TIME!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time renting on VRBO and what a wonderful experience. The house is beautful and comfortable. The upstairs bedroom has a great view of the lake. The weather wasn't great while we were there, but it was still relaxing to watch the waves in the morning. The owners were great to work with, and our only regret is that we didn't bring our suits to enjoy the sauna!

BEAUTIFUL HOME AND HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
This review is long overdue, but I didn't want to go without saying what a wonderful place to stay this is.

My husband, parents and I stayed just one night back in Sept 2013. We'd intended it to be a weekend-long trip but due to an unforseen broken ankle for my mom, we cut our weekend short.

Heather was super gracious and understanding throughout the entire process, including when we had to leave early. Ahead of the trip, she promptly responded to emails and questions. Our stay itself, though short, was also wonderful. Upon arriving, we found a hand-written welcome card, information and chocolates. The home is lovely and inviting with all the thoughtful extras you could want -- and a fantastic view of the lake from one of the bedrooms upstairs!

Even in the short time we were there, we fully used the kitchen and had fun playing darts and air hockey in the basement. We walked along the beach (easily accessible from behind the house).

I just wish we'd had more time to spend there - we hope to try again this next fall.

I would definitely recommend a stay here.

GREAT GETAWAY SPOT ON THE LAKE

Really enjoyed our time here. It's a beautiful house with lots of extras. Big Kitchen, cozy living area with a fireplace, spacious bedrooms and a game area in the lower level. Heather and Steve are great hosts. Very accommodating. Highly recommend.

DELIGHTFUL DULUTH

  • 5 of 5
This is a delightful property! VERY CLEAN!!! Steps away from the beautiful Lake Superior.

I have to say this was the most relaxing vacation I've had in 15 years. The house was so cozy and clean it was everything we imagined and MORE! Waking up to the view of Lake Superior is incredible!

If you are debating about staying in Duluth this is the property for you! I didn't want to leave and go back to reality!

Thanks for providing this great vacation home, it was AMAZING!

DULUTH BUSINESS AND PLEASURE

  • 5 of 5
I was going to be in Duluth for three nights to attend a conference. Decided to extend the stay and rented this house and not a traditional hotel. Great choice. Wonderful location and a very nicely appointed home.
