About Bill Michels

We are a Twin Cities architect and artist who are always thrilled to spend 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 away from home. 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

Fabulous two days. Best family vacation ever. Two buildings allow flexibility for day naps and for those who do not snooze. My family barely left the house, it was so comfortable. Everything we needed was there. Glorious kitchen with upscale stove and sink.

House was beautiful Bathroom in the house had wonderful tub and stonework. The cabin felt like a family cabin that you are coming back year after year. Beds were very comfortable. Nice sized yard.

We walked to Canal Park and to the lift bridge to see the ships arriving. We swam 3 times a day. Only a short walk though the dunes to a beautiful, clean beach. I miss it already.

Perfect get away spot

  • 5 of 5

This property is great for multi-family with adequate space and great gathering areas such as the Bon fire area, large dining table and great beach access!

Bathrooms were nice and sleeping arrangements all work very well!

Highly recommend! And I will come back again!

If the weather had been nice it would have been perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The accomadtions were great. Adorable house that had everything we needed. My son and granddaughters slept in the beach house so we were able to have breakfast together and start our day together. The weather did not cooperate but if it had been nicer out it would have been perfect, we made the best of it. I would recommend staying here without a doubt, owner was very accomadating.

Great for Families

  • 5 of 5

My family was meeting in Duluth for my nephew's wedding. Two families stayed at Park Point House and Cottage and had a great time! The other families who stayed in nearby hotels could easily stop by and hang out. We enjoyed the beach, bon fires at night, and family meals. There was a massive garage sale all up and down the street going on during our stay which added to the fun. We bought an extra bike and used the one Bill had in the garage. This allowed for two people to bike to Canal Park in 10 minutes and eat lunch or explore. My husband and I biked to Canal Park Brewing Co. They have a great outdoor space facing Lake Superior - nice restaurant/bar to relax and enjoy the lake. We left the extra bike in the garage for future guests! Great place with awesome access to the beach!

Great cabin, great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time staying for a couple of night with 6 adults total. Amenities were great. Access to the beach is outstanding. Very responsive owner. The only complaint I would have is the beach house has a very uncomfortable full-sized mattress that is in desperate need of replacement.

Park Point Vacation Rental...

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Park Point home for several days.... our daughter got married in Duluth, and we loved having the rental for immediate family. The extra cottage was perfect because it provided privacy and comfort for some of our family. Sleeping accommodations were great, and we loved the rustic feel of the home! It was so cozy and inviting!

The owner was very personable, and helpful.

We appreciated those extra amenities provided, and the fire pit, outdoor furniture, grill, etc. were wonderful. We hosted a brunch the day after the wedding, and our guests were impressed with the home as well. No doubt, it peaked their interests as well.

We will definitely consider another stay at this location in the future!

The only "downside" was the amount of traffic due to its location near Canal Park, but that would not deter us from returning! The location is beautiful.... the lift bridge, Canal Park, shops, restaurants, etc. A taste of Duluth at its best! Awesome!
