About Heather Pitschka

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.

Heather Pitschka purchased this house in 2011

What makes this house 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 5 blocks away for the farthest inland port in the world.

You are 5 blocks 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!

Beautiful house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend in the Fall and had a fantastic experience. The house is beautifully finished and has all the conveniences of home. We had plenty of room for our family of four. The beach access right out the back door was fantastic - the beach was beautiful and sandy. The location of the house was also great - only about a half mile down to Canal Park with sidewalk the entire way. The view from the rear bedroom was amazing - we got to watch the sunrise without even lifting our heads off the pillow! Heather was very responsive and extremely friendly to work with as we planned our trip. I would definitely recommend this house and will be back!

Clean, beautiful space.

Property is very clean and beautiful. The beach is a stones throw from the house. Crashing waves, fresh air, relaxation.

Great Beach House Close to Downtown

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took the two young kids (<3) for the week and had a great time. Having the beach out the door was great and we could walk to everything downtown.

The interior of the house was great and the games downstairs were a big plus for our oldest.

Clean and well-appointed for a family vacation for 4 people. Great location with beach access and within walking distance of Canal Park. Would definitely return!

Clean, beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this super clean home. Our kids, ages 7 and 4, loved the games and the beach. We enjoyed grilling and eating on the patio. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need, including some condiments.

We would highly recommend staying here for a relaxing weekend or a full week (or more!).
