About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2001

Why The Owner chose Duluth

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.

Unbeatable charm, location and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted when we arrived at the beach house to find it was even more charming and comfortable than we had expected form the pictures! As a family with two young children and my mother, the house could not have been more perfect. My older son immediately fell in love with the warm and whimsical decor in the 'school' room-themed bedroom. And we all found the configuration with three bedrooms and a beautifully renovated bathroom with tub upstairs to be very convenient. The view from the lake-front bedroom is also lovely. What a peaceful place to wake up! Downstairs, the kitchen is beautifully modernized with everything you need for your stay. The owners, Health and Steve, were very thoughtful in providing supplies like dishwashing liquid, paper towels and toilet paper. The dining room is a charming place to have a meal and the chilly temps at night allowed us to enjoy the cozy fireplace. For multi-generation families, the downstairs bedroom with its own bathroom is also a plus. And the location! How ideal. A brief walk over the dunes puts you on the wonderfully serene, unspoiled beach - along which you can walk for miles. And it is a quick drive to the shops and restaurants of Canal Park - as well as the wonderful boardwalk, which we found convenient. Plus, how nice to stay near the iconic lift bridge! Thank you so much to Heath and Steve for a magical home in Duluth.

Couldn't have been more perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the beach house! It was perfect for my family. The dining room table is very large and we shared many hours of delicious meals, game playing and laughter. The house is so beautifully done, we felt right at home immediately. The lake is so close we could walk down at anytime and watch the wonders of the spring time thaw - each day was a completely different view. Heather and Steve were great to work with. We hope to go back again!!

Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property! This was our group's first trip up to Duluth. The house is a quick 5 minute drive from Canal Park and would definitely be walkable in the summer. House was spotless when we arrived and decorated beautifully. Loved the fireplace and sauna. Beach would be awesome if we had come during the warmer months! (Literally in the backyard) We had 6 girls in our mid twenties & accommodations were very comfortable. Heather was very helpful during our time planning our trip. Recommend for anyone looking for a cute, clean, Duluth vacation rental in a great location.

great place for a weekend escape

  • 5 of 5

we stayed with a group of 6 friends, all in our late 20's. House had plenty of room for all of us and some great entertainment in the basement (sauna, ping pong, foos ball). Great location, great house, friendly and responsive owners. Would definitely recommend.

Cozy older home with great updates

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful long weekend at this vacation rental. The owners have set up the house wonderfully. It's decorated warmly and is extremely welcoming. Great area for eating together and playing games, comfortable living space and bedrooms. Towels, bedding kitchen necessities were all nice quality and the ping pong and foosball tables were fun to play on a cold weekend. Convenient location to many of Duluth's attractions. Heather was great to work with setting up the stay.
