Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
Steve and I (Heather) have lived in Duluth for the past 20 and 15 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.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Owner chose Park Point
Actually the vacation home is Steve's first home. He spent much of his free time repairing/refinishing. It is furnished with antiques handed down in our family that Steve refinished. We were unable to part with it when we moved to our new home less than a mile away so we turned it into a vacation rental home in 2010.
What makes this Cottage 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 less than one mile away for the farthest inland port in the world. You are less than one mile 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! Steve lived in this house for several years and knows you have great neighbors! If you want shopping, coffee, antiques they are less than 1 mile down the road over the Aerial Lift Bridge. You can also make the walk on sandy beach.

Great hospitality, great location!
Love this place and Heather is a wonderful host.
Property exactly as described. Communication was excellent with the owner. The home had many charming features. Fully recommend!
5 of us- best friends- came for a Duluth vacation and stayed at Heathers rental home. A stones throw away from the shore of magnificent Lake Superior- this quaint house was perfectly located to Everything we wanted to see and do. Great sights, great shopping and Great restaurants. And the people of Duluth were all so welcoming and friendly. We had a wonderful time and Heather was a gratious host. We will be back!
This was a great place withFOUR bedrooms. The house is a well maintained older home right next to Lake Superior. It is right on the sandy walk to the water. The kitchen relatively small BUT three people can prep at the same time. Heather asked the phone right away or returned the call well within an hour. If I come to Duluth again this is the place I want to go!,
What a great place in a great location
House was clean and well appointed. Beds were comfortable. Fun to walk over the dunes to the beach although it was a little too cold still while we were there. Close to lots of things to do.
