About The Owner

Steve and I (Heather) have lived in Duluth for the past 20 and 15 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.

The house was beautiful, and the location couldn't be better!

  • 5 of 5

The house provided a great setting for our family vacation, and we can imagine getting more enjoyment out of the decks and BBQ during seasons when the weather is better! The owners were very responsive--onsite in 10 minutes--when the hot water heater had a problem. The large living/dining room worked great for group gatherings, and everyone enjoyed the ping-ping and foosball tables in the basement. They're great for rainy days!

Cozy beach home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at the house! Such a great place for a family and close to canal park and the restaurants in Duluth! The walk down to the beach is so short and the sand is perfect! Home had everything we needed, we will be back soon!

Lovely

  • 4 of 5

Great location, welcoming and charming home! We had a wonderful weekend and would definitely recommend this house to friends and family.

We had a group of girls, so one shower for five people was a bit challenging. A mirror in each room would have been helpful.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend. Met up with family from Red Wing, St Paul, Two Harbors, and Grand Marais. Walked on the beach, made brunch at the house, took our 9 month old to the Great Lakes Aquarium, and went out for dinner and to the nearby distillery. The house was comfy, cozy, and clean. Heather was super accommodating. Would stay here again and recommend to others!

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.
