New Exercise Equipment at our Duluth Hotel


New Exercise Equipment Fitness Center

One of the hardest things to keep up with while traveling is a fitness routine. No matter if you’re on vacation or a business trip, you’re far from home and your favorite places to workout.

While we can boast an amazing view of Lake Superior just outside our doors and a lakewalk with all kinds of exercise opportunities, we know the weather doesn’t always cooperate. That’s why we’ve always maintained a fitness room in our hotel.

Enjoy free weights, treadmills, elliptical, recumbent bike, and more. PLUS, we just upgraded our equipment! Stop by and check out our brand NEW Matrix T3x Treadmill 4.2 hp, Matrix E3x Elliptical, and Matrix R3x Recumbent Cycle.

We understand how important fitness is to your health and good sleep!

Our fitness room is open 24/7.

Next up, new carpeting throughout the hotel!

Renovations, remodeling, and new mattresses!


Lakeside King SuiteEven though Canal Park Lodge is one of the newer hotels in canal park, it doesn’t mean that we’re not frequently updating and improving our rooms, amenities, and services. Last summer we remodeled our outdoor patio to give guests more space to enjoy the beautiful views of Lake Superior. Earlier this fall we updated the furniture in our lobby and other public spaces to increase comfort and coziness. We also upgraded our in-room desk chairs.

While these updates and renovations are all important in creating a wonderful stay at our lodge, one of the most important aspects of a good hotel is a good night’s sleep, right? This is why we kicked off 2016 with brand new mattresses!

We replace our mattresses regularly, long before they’re worn out to ensure our guests have the best sleep possible away from their own bed. However, it seemed wrong to just throw out good mattresses. This is why we offered ours free to the community. We know how expensive a good mattress is, so we gladly gave away our lightly used kings and queens.

Up next in 2016, new exercise equipment and new carpeting throughout the hotel.

Bentleyville’s Lights are Twinkling


Bentleyville 2015

Things are lighting up here in canal park and bayfront park in Duluth, MN! Volunteers are working around the clock to put up over 4 million lights in the 20 acre park just off the shore of Lake Superior.

If you’ve never visited Bentleyville “Tour of Lights”, the magic begins this year on November 21, 2015. Bundle up and enjoy a stroll through the park to view the many lighted displays with various themes. Grab a cup of complimentary hot cocoa, cookies, and popcorn, you can even roast a marshmallow over a warm campfire. Get your picture taken with Rudolph or one of the other reindeer (or all of them if your heart desires). Visit Santa and Mrs. Claus. Don’t forget your ice skates! Weather permitting, the ice rink will be glistening and holiday music playing.

As always, this is a free event, although donations are appreciated.
