Winter Itinerary


  • After a warm, sumptuous breakfast, today is the day to hit the slopes! You’ll find great slopes at Spirit Mountain just minutes away, or Mont du Lac in Superior, WI!
  • After, or during, your ski adventure at Spirit Mountain, take a ride on the new Timber Twister, the year round alpine coaster with spectacular views! There is nothing like it in the Midwest!
  • After enjoying your time on the slopes, come inside and warm up At Sara’s Table/Chester Creek Café for a delicious meal or cup of hot chocolate!
  • Tonight the kid at heart comes alive as you head down to Canal Park and take in the magic of the season with the fantastic light display at the Bentleyville Tour of Lights! Cookies, hot chocolate, and a great way to spend an evening!
  • Head back to the AG Thomson House, fill up that whirlpool, pop in a movie, and relax after a great winter day in Duluth!


So you are not a downhill skier, but a Nordic skier…do we have the trails for you! Duluth’s parks and cross country ski trails are simply fantastic!

  • SkinnySki is a website dedicated to keeping up with the conditions of our trails and a great resource for choosing one. One of our personal favorites is the Lester Park Trail located just east of us off Superior Street. It’s one of our most beautiful city parks, and well maintained trails. Other favorites include Chester BowlHartley Park, and the Snowflake Nordic Ski Center.
  • After enjoying an invigorating time on the trail, stop in at the New London Café; a quaint, hometown café located in Duluth’s east end neighborhood of Lakeside. After lunch, enjoy some of the unique shops this charming neighborhood has to offer. My absolute favorite is Serendipity; stop in and say hello to Gayle and tell her the A G Thomson House sent you there!
  • Wind down your day and return to the Inn having enjoyed another beautiful winter day in Duluth. Enjoy another soak in your whirlpool or deep soaking clawfoot tub, a glass of wine, hot chocolate, tea or cider and some fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. Aaahhh! Tonight is the perfect night to grab a movie or two from our collection of over 500 DVD’s, order pizza from Pizza Luce, or call the FoodDudesDelivery.com and order from a few of the restaurants participating; then snuggle in for a cozy, warm and toasty night!


Today is the day you will do your holiday shopping!! You already made it to Serendipity, so now it’s off to more of Duluth’s unique shops and antique stores.
