Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Duluth - Cottage on the Point

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

'Cottage on the Point' is located on Lake Superior's grand Park Point beach with five miles of extraordinary sand. This historic home, built in the late 1880's, rumored to be a hunting lodge, is now completely restored. Remodeled and redecorated it is full of old Duluth charm and modern conveniences. The cottage is licensed as a vacation rental by the city of Duluth-permit #PL13-019

The cottage is three miles from the world famous aerial lift bridge and Canal Park activities. It is one and a half miles from the Park Point recreation area with sailing and boat launch facilities. The cottage is located in a residential neighborhood, with private beach access. Step back to a time when the pace was slower and relax in your own private beach cottage.

Park Point offers many wonderful activities and we are prepared to help you enjoy it with four kayaks, one aluminum canoe, two adult life vests and beach mats and towels. Come prepared to enjoy the sun, but if it should rain, you can enjoy the supply of videos, DVD's, games and books perfect for a relaxing vacation.

Don't miss a chance to rent this extraordinary home at a price below the cost of a hotel room or conduminum rental. You can have it all - three large bedrooms, large living room / great hall with gas fireplace, dining room, kitchen, laundry room, front porch, back porch, gas grill and of course the beach - all located in quiet neighborhood. It is the best Duluth has to offer and it is away from the crowds that are found at lakeside hotels and condumiums.

EXTRA BONUS: If you like psychological suspense novels, check out books by award winning author Brian Freeman (bfreemanbooks). Our historic beach cottage is featured in Freeman's third and fourth novels, featuring Jonathan Stride and Serena Dial. The forward reads: 'Much of this novel was conceived and researched in a rental cottage on Park Point in Duluth that bears suspicious similarity to the home now owned by Stride and Serena. Your can actually stay there yourself, or tour the home at cottageonthepoint.' Or just send in a VRBO inquiry now for your dates and see if you can enjoy this historic cottage for your vacation. Please note that this is a peaceful residential neighborhood. Loud parties and excessive drinking or substance use are not welcome.

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 Duluth

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything here is so comfortable and well thought out. I particularly liked the built in reading nooks near the fireplace. After years of renting homes around the midwest I would rank this amoung the best and look forward to a return trip this summer. Thank you for a restful break. The skiing at Spirit Mountain was good.

Very family friendly

  • 5 out of 5
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.

Wondeful Cottage in Excellent Location!

  • 5 out of 5
The Cottage was the perfect setting for our family get-together including 2 and 4 yr olds. Plenty of room with three big bedrooms and a huge family/living room with the sweetest reading nook by the fireplace. We had so much room to spread out and play with the little ones yet still have areas for the adults to visit. The Cottage was spotless and cozy - decorated beautifully but still kid friendly. The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed cooking and dining there. Really loved that the dining area and kitchen are open to one another- we spent a lot of time around the table visiting, cooking, eating, etc. So very comfortable. We loved the historic feel to the house yet appreciated all the modern conveniences. The owners home is located right behind the Cottage - between the lake and the Cottage - and you walk by their home on the way to the beach and this didn't bother us in the least. It was comforting know they were close by if we needed anything. Would love to visit again in the summer and take advantage of the beautiful beach and water activities provided with the cottage. Would also LOVE to sit on the front porch with a cup of coffee or glass of wine and take in beautiful Duluth and Park Point. We highly recommend and look forward to staying again sometime.

Charming and cozy house in a spectacular location!

  • 5 out of 5
First of all, if you have not been to Park Point it is a MUST see location in Minnesota. The island, beach and harbor are spectacular. This house is very charming, comfortable and intriguing. The wooden floors are a bit creaky and slanted but I think it adds to the charm and only makes for a bit of an annoyance in the middle of the night with sleeping babies. I found the short walk to the beach unique and stunning...like something out of a movie. This house is spacious with lots of room for kids to play and adults to lounge. We loved this house and location. We will be back for a summer stay!

Relaxing Vacation Spot!

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you for hosting us in your relaxing, beautifully decorated cottage! Our whole family enjoyed all of the reading nooks, the cozy fireplace, and the private beach walks. It made some fond memories for us and we would definitely attempt to come again!

Wonderful, Amazing, Just what we wanted!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, 4 year old son, my parents and I stayed here for a long weekend and it was perfect. The cottage was clean, spacious, and perfectly decorated. The bedrooms were all great sizes, the kitchen and grill were ideal for cooking and the porch was just what we needed in the evenings. My little guy loved the toys and games, they were all hidden away - so no toys just laying out. We had a great time!

Great place to enjoy Park Point and Duluth.

  • 5 out of 5
The Cottage on the Point is a great base for a family or group to enjoy the amazing beach on Lake Superior and explore Duluth. The cottage is comfortable and roomy, with a tangible sense of place. Bill and Pat are gracious hosts who respect guests' privacy, yet are fun to chat with when you happen to see them on the property. We have stayed twice and will be back.
