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.

Spirit Mountain Ski Trip - VERY CLEAN and WELCOMING

  • 5 of 5

This property was "as advertised" and more. The location was easy to find and was very clean. The owners were very helpful with addressing all questions leading up to our groups stay. They even had local suggestions of restaurants and activities within the guest book. The deck area was a perfect hangout and having the fireplace was an added bonus.

We had a great time in Duluth and our group plans on returning to this vacation property for a future summer trip where we can utilize the grill. I highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a group/family trip to the Duluth area.

Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our anniversary getaway! The area was nice and quiet as well as close to Canal Park for restaurants. The house was cute and had great amenities; we took advantage of the soaking tub, sauna and kitchen. Before our next trip, we will definitely check to see if this spot is available! Thanks Heather & Steve for hospitality!!

Christmas Celebration

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for a family gathering. The rooms were good size. It was very clean and well decorated. The kitchen was well stocked.

It was very cozy place to spend a cold wintery windy weekend with a fire in the fireplace. Ping Pong and Foosball what could be better. Heather was great to work with and very welcoming for a stay in Duluth. Could not have been happier with our stay. Everyone in our family was impressed. If you enjoy Lake Superior put this home on your list.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We originally rented the property to have a ski vacation at Spirit Mountain; however, due to the weekend ice storm, conditions at the mountain were not conducive to skiing and we spent the bulk of our family time at the property. The location worked out great as we were only minutes from anywhere we wanted to go. Even though it was December, we still walked over the berm and spent time on the beach by the lakeshore. The property was very cozy and well equipped. We enjoyed our kitchen time together as we made homemade individual pizzas for dinner and blueberry waffles and beneits for breakfast. It was a great family "weekend".
