Overview

About the property

3 bedroom home one block from the Ariel Lift Bridge and the beach, Bay access

This classic cape-cod home is now completely remodeled and redecorated. It is full of the quality touches of mission-style construction, yet updated with all the modern conveniences. Just one block from canal park, there is plenty to do and see, all within easy walking distance.

The huge upstairs Master Bathroom Suite with King size bed includes a sitting area and a 3/4 bath. The two bedrooms on the main floor have excellent twin beds, and a full hotel-style bath serves the main floor. Cook memorable meals in the well-stocked kitchen that is open to the family room area. The back deck off the kitchen is perfect for gatherings and barbeques, and faces a huge back yard and St. Louis Bay. Two kayaks and adult-sized life jackets are in the yard for your use, and beach towels and mats are supplied for your leisurely walk to the beach. At the other end of the point, 4 and 1/2 miles away, is the Park Point recreation area with sailing and boat launch facilities. You can arrange to park your boat in the back yard and then dock at the end of the point. Pets are allowed with a pet deposit.

Even though close to canal park, the home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood, and is licensed as a vacation rental, Permit, #PL14-069, and Hotel/Motel License #700021. Loud parties, excessive drinking, or substance abuse are not welcome at this home or in our neighborhood. Also please note that the owner has the right to come and go from the basement apartment 24/7.

About Mary DuBois

Always a mid-westerner, I raised my children on the Iron Range of Minnesota, and moved to Duluth to run the Community College. I've been an educator all my life and had many wonderful jobs and experiences, and am presently teaching online for Bemidji State University. I live with my partner Lindy in the middle part of the state, but spend quite a bit of time on the point, especially when my daughter comes from Norway for 6 weeks. I have a publishing company, and also write fiction (under the pen name 'Bernie DuBois') and have written children's books (under the name Mary Koski) so the creativity of the point is special to me.

Mary DuBois purchased this house in 2013

Why Mary DuBois chose Duluth

I so much wanted to return to the point after living there for many years in the mid-1990s and then again in 2005. When I last left the point, I thought that I might never be able to return, until I found this home that needed some TLC. Many projects later, I'm thrilled with the house and with the location. Nothing like sitting out on the deck at sunset and watching a ship go by! It is a magical, peaceful place. Yet blocks away there are tourists and energetic families and romantic couples - just a perfect mix of vacationers and people who have lived here their entire lives. I have fixed up the basement apartment for myself, so that if I have guests, I can still come and go for the occasional night in Duluth.

What makes this house unique

When I saw this home for the first time, I loved the mission-style construction that goes from the front door to the ceiling trim in the living room! During my remodel, I even kept the old coat hangers in the entryway and the pearled light switch covers, for old-time sake. I couldn't part with the 1950's awnings either - I had them repainted and reinstalled! The original hard-wood floors on the main floor are gorgeous, and the Master suite upstairs has just the right creaking from the original planked floors.

We liked this house so much last year we booked again this year for Grandma's marathon weekend. House has all the amenities and the location can't be beat. Very comfortable!

Beautiful, spacious, and great location

  • 4 of 5

It was a beautiful location. Walking distance to canal park safe and clean. Perhaps a little spendy for the accommodations, but obviously an experienced host.

Great stay in Duluth

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a wonderful five days exploring Duluth and the surrounding area. The fall colors were at their peak which made it all the more enjoyable. I can't say enough nice things about this rental. The location is great...just a short walk across the lift bridge to the Canal Park area where there are plentiful restaurants and shopping. Downtown is also easily accessible by car or walking. The unit is very well furnished; we didn't lack for anything. In fact, it felt like being in someone's actual home with the homeowner only being gone during our stay. It was a very comfortable place to come back to after a day of exploring. I would wholeheartedly recommend this unit to my friends and would rent it again myself should I ever re-visit Duluth. Thanks, Mary!

P.S. If you like beer, we visited all the microbreweries/taprooms in the area and found Bent Paddle to be the best. Worth multiple visits. A close second was Castle Danger Brewery in Two Harbors.

Owner's Response: You are so welcome, John. And every time I leave my home, I know that good people are going to be there enjoying Duluth, the ships and the deck, and a friend and I just last month went to the brewery - what fun!

With the beach only one block away, and the bay outside your back door, you have the best of both worlds - the beach for walks and swims, and kayaking and canoeing in the bay. Located only a block away from the aerial lift bridge, this home is within walking distance of canal park, the boardwalk, and all of the shopping and ship-watching of the harbor. Many restaurants are close by, such as Grandmas, little Angies Cantina and Grill, and Bellisio's. Only three blocks away, Adventure Zone is a great place for entertaining the kids, and includes a facility with games and miniature golf - perfect for rainy day entertaining!
