About Pat Burns
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 House in 1995
Why Pat Burns chose Park Point
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.
What makes this House unique
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.
Charming and peaceful.
A beautiful home with all the charm and more space and comfort than we could handle. We did not take advantage of the kitchen but it looks well-stocked for preparing a family meal or a dinner party with friends. A great stay!
Perfect place to stay!
Really comfortable house, in a great location. Perfect home base for your trip to Duluth!
The snowshoeing was great! Fresh snow meant a great trip along the lake ... and thanks for the owners who shoveled our car out!
Cozy and comfortable--perfect for our group!
The cottage was simply perfect! It served as command center for exploration of the North Shore and an epic owl adventure. As a snowstorm settled in, we stayed cozy and warm by the fire. The cottage was well supplied with books, movies, games, and basic provisions. We will definitely come back the next time Duluth calls!
Beautiful Home, Peaceful location, Wonderful hosts
Our book club just spent a wonderful weekend in this lovely home on Park Point. The living room was beautiful, yet cozy with a fireplace. The kitchen was fully stocked (including condiments), so we cooked all weekend. The path to the lake was short. The owners/hosts were so kind. We had a couple requests that they were happy to accommodate, quickly. Couldn't recommend this rental highly enough.
Ski: The Duluth area is home to wonderful downhill skiing at Spirit Mountain, and numerous and wonderful cross country ski trails in the city and nearby area.
