September 28, 2017Around Beacon Pointe
Each quiet season at Beacon Pointe, we host long term and corporate guests. We’ve had people stay here waiting for houses to be built, undergoing treatment for cancer, and working on short-term company projects. That’s because Beacon Pointe is the perfect middle ground—more comfortable than an extended stay hotel and more flexible than a long-term lease.
In the off-season, we have enough availability that we can lower rates. For stays of a month or longer in a one-bedroom condo, we...

September 28, 2017What to Do in Duluth,Beer
The waters of Lake Superior give us something to look at, something to swim in, and something for the ships to float on. But more than anything, they give us beer.
For many years Fitger’s Brewhouse was the only commercial establishment taking advantage of this pristine water source to make craft brews. Though this local favorite is still going strong, Duluth now has multiple production breweries, taprooms, and a large number of brewpubs as well.
Production breweries are allowed to sell...
September 28, 2017What to Do in Duluth
We love the Lakewalk, but there are a lot of good reasons to bike on Duluth’s trail system as well. Maybe you want a more strenuous workout or a more intimate encounter with nature. During the fall there is another reason—to get a better look at all the fall colors.
Naturally you expect to see trees on a trail, but here there is a little more to the story. It is not just the amount of trees, but the type of trees that make a difference. Just as going into Duluth’s hills often involves...

Winter Dates in Canal Park
Canal Park is a great place for a winter date. It has easily accessible scenic locations for Facebook-worthy couples shots and it is just as easy to find a warm spot inside you both can enjoy. Beacon Pointe is right on the Lakewalk and a medium length walk or very short drive to the Canal.
To start with, parking is easy this time of year. Parking is free and you usually don’t have to walk too far in the cold to get where you are going. But, if you want to walk...
