About Bill Michels

We are a Twin Cities architect and artist who are always thrilled to spend family time in Duluth. The House and Cottage on Park Point is our little place away from home to do that. We have enjoyed remodeling and updating the house and cottage and turning it into a comfortable home with a relaxing livable atmosphere. It's given us the opportunity to do something a little different that we can share with everyone else.

Bill Michels purchased this house in 2005

Why Bill Michels chose Duluth

The beach is like nothing else in this part of the country, it's like being at the ocean. The water is warm enough to swim in, you can walk forever, and the infamous MN mosquito's are practically non existent because of the breezes off the lake. It's certainly a bonus to be a 15 minute walk down the beach to Canal Park or a short drive to the North Shore of Lake Superior.

What makes this house unique

We are just a bit unique in that there are two units we rent together. Put the kids in one or even grandma if she prefers to have her own quarters. Sometimes it's just a fight to see who gets the cottage!

And of course the location- beach, Canal Park, Lake Superior, the North Shore, restaurants...!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Bill,Just wanted to let you know....Anyhow that is a gorgeous place, it was the coolest design and decorating, I fell in love with it. I just wanted you to know that you did an excellent job, I felt like it was from a magazine. Thank you for letting us stay in your rental and for letting us bring our pets. We had a great time, and will tell everyone about the greatest place in Duluth. Thanks again.Megan

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great rental for a big group. We really enjoyed the space, especially the big table where we played games for hours. The house had everything we needed. I would recommend this rental. We hope to come back during the summer!

a cozy home by the shore with room for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the natural warmth created inside the house and cabin. With 2 families and 3 kids we all had plenty of room to be together and also let the kids have their needed quiet time too. We found the property on a list of dog friendly places in Duluth, let's not forget about our two dogs and how they enjoyed the fresh air too.

Lovely weekend getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The Park point house was the perfect cozy getaway for our group. We had a couple families so the extra Cottage in back worked well for the kids to have their own space. Everything looked as promised and the house was clean and comfortable. Only a short drive to ski at Spirit Mt and the water / beach is right out back. Amazing stay.

Comfortable and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the property, despite the freezing cold temps. Having two separate houses worked perfect for us. Bill has created a very comfortable home that we would not hesitate to return to.
