Park Point - Duluth Beach Cottage on Lake Superior - Historic ~ Includes Kayaks!

Family-friendly vacation home in Duluth
Homeowner note: VRBO/HomeAway is the only website to rent this property

'Cottage on the Point' is located on Lake Superior's grand Park Point beach with five miles of extraordinary sand. This historic 3 bedroom home, built in the late 1880's, rumored to be a hunting lodge, has been lovingly restored. Remodeled and redecorated it is full of old Duluth charm and modern conveniences. A new kitchen was installed in March 2020. New cabinets, stone countertop, new lighting, and all new stainless steel appliances.

The cottage is three miles from the world famous aerial lift bridge and Canal Park activities. It is one and a half miles from the Park Point recreation area with sailing and boat launch facilities. The cottage is located in a residential neighborhood, with private beach access. Step back to a time when the pace was slower and relax in your own private beach cottage.

Park Point offers many wonderful activities and we are prepared to help you enjoy it with four kayaks, one aluminum canoe, two adult life vests and beach mats and towels. Come prepared to enjoy the sun, but if it should rain, you can enjoy the supply of videos, DVD's, games and books perfect for a relaxing vacation.

Don't miss a chance to rent this extraordinary home at a price below the cost of a hotel room or conduminum rental. You can have it all - three large bedrooms, large living room / great hall with gas fireplace, dining room, kitchen, laundry room, front porch, back porch, gas grill and of course the beach - all located in quiet neighborhood. It is the best Duluth has to offer and it is away from the crowds that are found at lakeside hotels, around the bridge, and at lake walk condumiums.

EXTRA BONUS: If you like psychological suspense novels, check out books by award winning author Brian Freeman (bfreemanbooks). Our historic beach cottage is featured in Freeman's novels, featuring Jonathan Stride and Serena Dial, starting with his third book STALKED. The forward reads: 'Much of this novel was conceived and researched in a rental cottage on Park Point in Duluth that bears suspicious similarity to the home now owned by Stride and Serena. Your can actually stay there yourself, or tour the home at cottageonthepoint.' Or just send in a VRBO inquiry now for your dates and see if you can enjoy this historic cottage for your vacation. Please note that this is a peaceful residential neighborhood. Loud parties and excessive drinking or substance use are not welcome.
The cottage rental is all on one main floor with only a couple of stairs to enter from the outside. No interior stairs to access the rental space. The interior stairs in the photo of the living room lead to a locked doors, and the space beyond those doors is not part of the cottage rental.

This is a licensed property, inspected by the MN Department of Health, and the Duluth Fire Safety Office.

Please Beware. VRBO/HomeAway is the only website that I book my property through. If you see a listing somewhere else, like Craigslist, know that it is a scam. Recently someone has been trying to fleece vacationers with a false listing on these type of websites. Its a practice called scraping where they take our pictures and text. They use a written reservation system, Google Pay and Cash Pay. Do not be fooled by these fake listings.

A wonderful rental with character

Do yourself a favor and book this property! It is the perfect balance of modern convenience and comfort, with old fashioned charm and character. It is spacious, comfortable, close to Canal Park, and has a wonderful stretch of beach. Pat the owner has paid attention to the details that matter. The kitchen is fully equipt with everything you will need, right down to paper towels. The bathroom is the same way. The beds are extremely comfortable. This house is super clean. During our stay, 3 of the 5 of us are professional cleaners, and I always bring my own supplies because we usually need them. Not this time... we were all impressed. We loved this house. We all agree we want to come back. The owners are close by and was wonderful to chat with them. The pictures of the house were true to what is actually there. The description of the property is accurate as well. We were so happy to have found such a great place to stay. Cindy November 5-9, 2020
