About Bill Michels

We are a Twin Cities architect and artist who are always thrilled to spend family time in Duluth. The House and Cottage on Park Point is our little place away from home to do that. We have enjoyed remodeling and updating the house and cottage and turning it into a comfortable home with a relaxing livable atmosphere. It's given us the opportunity to do something a little different that we can share with everyone else.

Bill Michels purchased this house in 2005

Why Bill Michels chose Duluth

The beach is like nothing else in this part of the country, it's like being at the ocean. The water is warm enough to swim in, you can walk forever, and the infamous MN mosquito's are practically non existent because of the breezes off the lake. It's certainly a bonus to be a 15 minute walk down the beach to Canal Park or a short drive to the North Shore of Lake Superior.

What makes this house unique

We are just a bit unique in that there are two units we rent together. Put the kids in one or even grandma if she prefers to have her own quarters. Sometimes it's just a fight to see who gets the cottage!

And of course the location- beach, Canal Park, Lake Superior, the North Shore, restaurants...!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hey Bill,Just wanted to let you know....Anyhow that is a gorgeous place, it was the coolest design and decorating, I fell in love with it. I just wanted you to know that you did an excellent job, I felt like it was from a magazine. Thank you for letting us stay in your rental and for letting us bring our pets. We had a great time, and will tell everyone about the greatest place in Duluth. Thanks again.Megan

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great rental for a big group. We really enjoyed the space, especially the big table where we played games for hours. The house had everything we needed. I would recommend this rental. We hope to come back during the summer!

Great location, but 2 of the bedrooms do not have doors...

  • 2 of 5

Had a great time in Duluth, but some of our guests were very disappointed that neither of the bedrooms in the cottage had doors. One couple ended up renting a very expensive last minute hotel room instead of staying in the doorless bedroom. Maybe other reviews shared that 2 of the bedrooms didn't have doors. I didn't check all the other reviews when booking, but I would have assumed that a room would have a door in order to be considered a bedroom.

If that isn't important to you, the house is great...older but quaint and cute, there is a very short walk across the dunes to an amazing beach, and great backyard for campfires. The coffee pot broke, and Roger had someone deliver it the next morning, so good customer service. Also, the cottage smells a bit musty.

Very cozy and comfortable beach house and cabin feel cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The house and cottage were perfect for our family. The house was fully stocked to meet our needs. Loved the easy access to the beach and the privacy. Our grandchildren also loved the whirlpool tub.

Clean and Super Comfy Beds!

  • 4 of 5

We traveled here for a get away with friends and had a wonderful time. Cabins were clean and "re-purposed" decor was fun and creative. Loved the yard and fire put, loved proximity to beach, close to downtown. We were thrilled to find out Canal Ooint Garage Sales were set up Friday morning and so enjoyed the buys! Thank you Bill for sharing your wonderful home with us!

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 9 other girls stayed in this quaint cottage for a long weekend away. The pictures really don't show how adorable this place is! It was the perfect amount of space for us. We even got to enjoy the fire pit one night and having the wood provided was very convenient. We had everything we needed and would definitely recommend staying with Bill! The one downside I would say is that the WiFi cut out after the first night and we were unable to fix it. But hey, sometimes a weekend without technology is needed.
