At the very heart of Duluth is Lake Superior, the largest, and arguably the most beautiful, of the Great Lakes. Just about everywhere you go in Duluth, whether shopping, dining, or enjoying downtown, or hiking in the pristine forests surrounding the town, breathtaking views of Lake Superior are everywhere. This summer, Duluth’s harbor will transform yet again, with the awesome sight of historic tall ships pulling into town. Ship watching in Duluth is a popular pastime, but it’s made even better when the tall ships are on the horizon. Come stay at our luxury Bed and Breakfast in Duluth this summer, and enjoy the 2019 Festival of Sail with us.
