Minnesota Beach House is located on Park Point which is surrounded by the pristine waters of Lake Superior and the St Louis River. These bodies of water are home to kayakers, canoeists, boaters, fisherman, kite surfers, wind surfers, surfers, and swimmers. If you don't participate in these activities you'll surely enjoy their antics on the water!

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.

Perfect spot for our weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Came to this house for a girls' getaway and it was perfect. The house was very clean and it was clear that Heather and Steve put thought into the little details to make our stay a good one. We loved the location as it was a very short walk to Lake Superior in a quiet neighborhood but still close to Canal Park. The house was just as described, and I would certainly stay here again in the future if I take another trip to Duluth!

Immaculate and well equipped home with easy access to hikes on Park Point and the Canal Park area of Duluth. We had everything we needed for our stay. We were sorry when we had to leave!

Absolutely perfect. Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for a better place to stay. House was clean and comfortable. Beautiful sandy beach area for sitting and walking. Close enough to walk to canel park but far enough for the quiet time. Would certainly rent this house again. We loved it.

Enjoyable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and teenagers fit comfortably in this house (one of the boys slept on the couch which he said was comfortable). Although you couldn't see the lake from the house due to some trees and the dunes, we thoroughly enjoyed walking out the door and being on the beach in about two minutes. Very convenient and felt like we were on a private beach. These are older homes in the area that are very well kept. It is located in a nice neighborhood. My daughter lost her iPod on the beach and one of the neighbors found it and walked it over to us. That wouldn't happen in a lot of neighborhoods.

This was our first trip to Duluth and had a very nice time. If there was anything to complain about, it was that the trip was too short.

This property is perfect! It's clean, it's quiet, it's on the gorgeous beach, it's close to canal park and all the shopping and restaurants! Really what more could you ask for?! (except a personal chef and maid) ;)
