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!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house is the perfect place to stay and it is even better than the photos. Not only is the house designed to maximize the lake views and breezes, it feels quite spacious for its size. We loved the cook's kitchen, great shower in main floor bath and the sauna! Walking out the door to the beach and to kayak was so easy. Its a short walk or bike ride to Canal Park and the Lakewalk for dinner, shopping and music. Heather responded to our questions quickly and enthusiastically. We will definitely stay here again!

Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good about this cottage! Perfect location, perfect view, perfect property owner, perfect weather. We loved cooking in the kitchen, beach walks, yard sales, bicycles, watching ships come in and out of port. Thank you for an opportunity to have a wonderful vacation. We must come again :-) Thank you!

Sweet little cottage right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for three days and loved it (despite a slight plumbing issue!) Heather was very attentive and accommodating, and very quick to answer texts to address questions or concerns. House is very very nice. Enjoy the beach and short walk to Canal Park! We’ll be back! Thanks Heather!

A lovely home located on beautiful Park Point, our favorite spot in Duluth!

  • 5 of 5

This home was stocked with everything you would need for a comfortable stay away from home. Everything was very clean and well cared for. We were even welcomed with a kind "Happy anniversary" card! We especiallly enjoyed the sauna, claw foot tub, peaceful lake views and accessibility to the beach. The sunrise over the lake was beautiful, it was so nice to just walk out the back door onto the beach to soak it in. Our only constructive feedback would be that some new supportive pillows would be helpful! The owners were quick to respond and provided all the needed info before and during our stay. Thank you again for providing and maintaining a wonderful place to enjoy Duluth.
