Beacon Pointe Mitten Tree

Beacon Pointe Resort Mitten Tree May you always have a poem, like a pair of cozy mittens; Knitted by a friend who loves you. May your poem hold your hands through the blizzard of your living; Every word a warm blessing. Written by a soul you’ll never know but somehow understands. -Amy LV    On the Friday following Thanksgiving, we will begin what we hope will become an annual holiday tradition – a Mitten Tree – which will be located in the main lobby at Beacon Pointe Resort.  We will be…

Duluth's Temporary City on Ice

Each winter a temporary city arises in full view of Duluth's docks and downtown. This city is different because it is built on ice instead of on ground. Each winter a large number of ice fishermen and ice houses appear on Duluth's harbor. "There are days when there are 100's of people out there," said Connor at Marine General. " We see quite a few of those fishermen in the shop. It is the best walleye fishing near Duluth without trying to go too far." There are usually two different…


Long Term and Corporate Stays At 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…


Free Beer!

A Guide to Duluth's Best & Newest Breweries – 2017

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 their…


Duluth Fall Color Mountain Biking

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 a change…
