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 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 love this area and look forward to sharing our home with you.

Heather Pitschka purchased this house in 2012

Perfect, Simple Duluth Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a group of 7 and there was plenty of space. Walking distance from canal park and just a few footsteps from Lake Superior made this place a perfect to stay.

Beautiful and Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

Very warm and welcoming home. We loved our stay here, it was even nicer than you can imagine, the photos do not do it justice! Heather provided everything we needed, from linens to cookware in the kitchen! Our family loved everything about the house and hope to make it an annual tradition to stay here!

The house is in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We came up to Duluth to move our Mom into assisted living and it was a good place for us "kids" to get back together.

Fun, Casual Weekend Getaway for Family

  • 5 of 5

We went to this location in the winter and found it to be perfect. Plenty of space for 6 adults to get comfy, and we could put on our winter gear and walk a few hundred feet and be on the shore of Lake Superior. We were less than a mile from downtown Duluth but had all the creature comforts in our fireplace heated little play area.

The property is clearly described; the owner was responsive throughout the weekend to my quirky questions about where stuff was; and the house had all the kitchen gear and wifi we needed to enjoy our winter break comfortably. We would definitely go back.

Cozy House with Lots of Room within Walkable Distance to Canal Park

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I just got back from a weekend trip to Park Pointe Island, Duluth and had an amazing time. We arrived Friday night to find the house cute and clean with large communal rooms, perfect for several couples or a large family. The house is within easy walking distance of Canal Park, which we took advantage of both Friday and Saturday night to check out the restaurants, distilleries, and breweries. It is also about 100 yards from the entrance to the Lake Superior side beach access, which was perfect for a late afternoon walk in the sand.

Aside from the perfect amenities, Heather was flexible with our reserved date when my husband's grandfather passed suddenly a short time before our original stay. She allowed me to change the weekend of our stay without any additional charges with only a week's notice.

I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a reasonable accommodation close to Canal Park and/or on the beautiful Park Pointe Island. My friends and I will definitely be staying there again in the future.

wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

5 adults, 2 children had a great stay. The house is very roomy, well equipped and close to beach. Grandkids - 4 and 5 yrs old - looked for rocks, feathers, driftwood on beach and watched ships come in. Playground right across street. Adults kicked backed and relaxed. Took a harbor cruise, a ride on the train, did some shopping and took a day trip to the Soudan Underground mine in Tower, MN. The weather was great and we really enjoyed the house and it's amenities. Thanks so much, Heather and Steve!
