2016 Bentleyville Tour of Lights, lights up Duluth


Set-up has already begun, in fact it started at the end of September! It takes a lot of volunteer hours to put up 4 million lights in Duluth’s 20 acre Bayfront Park! There are NEW displays, more lighted tunnels, and Santa will be in a whole new area. The big lighted tree has also “grown” by 50,000 lights!

Lights will start twinkling November 19th. Don’t wait, make your reservations now to make sure you’ve got the best accommodations. Our Duluth Hotel is just 1/2 mile from the festivities.

Enjoy complimentary hot cocoa, cookies, and popcorn as you walk through each display. Stop by the warm campfires and roast marshmallows. Get your picture taken with Rudolph and of course visit Santa and Mrs. Claus. Don’t forget your ice skates! Weather permitting, the ice rink will be glistening and holiday music will be playing.

Need a little preview? Here’s a short video of the park from 2014.

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

Get an early start to your summer!


It’s an unusually warm and sunny spring here in Duluth, MN, which makes it the perfect time to visit. The summer season hasn’t hit yet. There aren’t many tourists, no bugs, easy parking, quick seating at restaurants. At the end of the day you can unwind and take in the view on our new patio, just built last summer. Nights are still a little chilly, so it’s the perfect place to gather around the fire, listen to the waves crash onto the beach. Before you know it summer will be here and Canal Park will be bustling. Take it from an experienced Duluthian, last year at this time we were still shoveling snow, don’t miss out on this sunny, warm Duluth spring.

NEW Patio at Canal Park Lodge


We are very proud to announce the opening of our new patio. We’ve expanded our seating area so more guest can enjoy our outdoor space. A bubbling rock fountain enhances the atmosphere, and our new fire ring creates the best place to enjoy a summer’s evening on the shore of Lake Superior. There’s nothing quite like a warm fire, a summer breeze, Lake Superior waves crashing on the beach, and great friends sitting beside you. We hope you enjoy the new patio area made just for you!
