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 home!

  • 5 of 5

The town of Duluth has such old world charm which my family and I enjoyed so much! The house is immaculate and also has the old world charm that I love! Everything you could possibly need is there. I even took a bike ride on one of the bikes in the shed. Loved the view of the lake! Can't say enough good things about this place! Thank you, Heather!

Perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We walked the beach into town and back every day and got some much needed relaxation. We came for a weekend and next time would love to make it a week.

You will be back after you stay here...

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, simple on the outside... but inside has been beautifully updated! And if that is not enough Heather was an outstanding host, making sure everything went off without a hitch. This is THE ideal place on Park Point.

My idea of PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

This little house is at a busy traffic corner and yet we were unaware of it. The beach is just over the dune. My husband and I were in town to care for our granddaughter as she has a new baby brother. The park across the street and the beach were lovely. The kitchen is lovely and the ease of they entire house made it hard to leave. We will try to stay here again and again!

Quiet, convenient location - LOVELY!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place, I highly recommend! It's very charming, clean and the perfect location. It's walking distance to Ariel Lift Bridge and Canal Park , but right on the beach. It's wonderfully quiet and perfectly equipped to meet all your needs.

The owners were a pleasure to work with, very flexible for my particular situation and left clear instructions for check-in, the fireplace, etc. Wonderfully modern yet warm and inviting. I look forward to renting again!!

Wonderful location and house!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 (2 boys, age 7 and 5). The house met and exceeded our needs for a spring break vacation! We stayed busy on the beach, relaxing in the sauna, and playing foosball and air hockey. When family came to visit there was plenty of room to play games and eat. The house is solid with lovely views and we hope to stay here again in the summer time!
