With a long and cold winter stretching out before us, it’s easy to curl up indoors and stay home, waiting for the glorious thaw of spring. However tempting that may be, we find it pretty easy to make the case to escape the Duluth for a few days. While there’s definitely an abundance of outdoor recreation in and around Duluth this winter, that’s not all we have to offer. At the A.G. Thomson House Bed and Breakfast, we know just how important it is to brighten up these dark winter days. Come stay with us this winter, and let us help you plan the perfect weekend in Duluth.

On the second day, it’s time to get outside and see what all the hype is about. Duluth has been ranked as a top destination for outdoor enthusiasts for a reason. Nordic Skis, snowshoes or fat bikes can be rented at the Continental Ski and Bike, or a variety of places around town before heading out on the the trails. Our favorite places to go include Snowflake Nordic ski Center, The Hartley Nature Center, and the Nordic trails at Spirit Mountain. Afterwards, grab a beer and warm up at Fitger’s Brewhouse, a Duluth institution. You can even stay here for dinner if you’d like.
