About Heather Pitschka

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

What makes this house unique

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!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The song sums it up perfectly: "Our house is a very, very, very fine house! " Heather is amazing, and all their beach houses are nicely done. Pick any one of her beach houses...you won't be disappointed, but you WILL be back!

If we have a chance to return to Duluth, we will definitely stay at Minnesota Point Beach House 1

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the house and setting. We hadn't realized how close we were to the Lake and were thrilled by that. The house is very attractive, well-designed and maintained and very comfortable. We watched videos from the bookcase and also found a fun puzzle to put together. The kitchen was well supplied and we loved looking out at Lake Superior while cooking.

The owners left a lot of information regarding the house, what to do in the area, etc.. We had an "amazing" breakfast at Amazing Grace. We loved walking along the beach and even went to a movie. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone.

Great Beach Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and cosy. We love the location and Heather (the owner) is very responsive. We have stayed here multiple times and will return. There is a very nice well equipped kitchen. We bring serving bowls, a few of our favorite kitchen tools and placemats if we are planning a special meal.

In summer there is a nice deck with gas grill.

The beach is just a few steps from the back door!

Perfection! All that beautiful Lake Superior has to offer!

  • 5 of 5

The sound of the waves heard from the bedroom window, going from the heat of the sauna to the cold of a Lake Superior night, warming up by the fireplace - all add up to a perfect get away stay. Also walking distance to the shops and action in Canal Park. Just a wonderful stay. Heather was so helpful! And, yes, she is mailing back my forgotten items!
