The Glensheen like you’ve never seen it before!

Butler from Glensheen promoting their newest Servants Tour

Maybe I’m just a little swept up in the popular T.V. series Downton Abbey, or maybe it’s the fact that Glensheen has created multiple new tours. I don’t know, but there’s a whole new excitement in the air!

You can tour the full mansion, see it by flashlight, explore it’s shore by kayak, marvel at it’s grandeur at Christmas, and even examine the life of the Glensheen servants. My personal favorites are the gardens, carriage house, and sunroom.

Another great way to tour the Glensheen is a self guided tour. These tours truly provide the best of both worlds. Rather than following a guide through the Mansion, you can move through the mansion at your own pace, spending as much or as little time as you would like in each room. Knowledgeable tour guides are stationed in every room and hallway ready to answer questions.

Whether you love the history or want to pretend you’re on the set in a Duluth version of Downton Abbey, I know you’ll have a great time. Stop by the front desk here at Canal Park Lodge for discount tickets for their Classic Tour.

What has chocolate, a beef stick, and a flashlight?

Spring Break in Duluth


Whether visiting or having a staycation, extremely cool people enjoy spring break in Duluth, MN. Here’s why. The weather is warming up, which means there are tons of things to do outside. (finally) It’s really beautiful in Duluth right now (sunny and above freezing). There’s still quite a bit of snow, so your first stop should probably be Spirit Mountain. If you think they only cater to skiers, you’re wrong. They have a whole adventure park!

We also have an array of restaurants (see our Area Guide for a list of options) and attractions that are entertaining. Or how about both? Check out Grandma’s Sports Garden for great eats and live boxing!
