It’s a New Year; Getaway to Duluth!

Duluth Winter GetawayWinter’s in Duluth are notoriously cold, and oftentimes uncomfortable if you’re out in the elements for too long.  If you’re into sporty adventures, then Duluth is one of the best winter playgrounds in the MidWest. But, for those of us that like to hibernate during these cold winter months, it can sometimes feel like a interminably long wait for the return of spring.  Despite the cold, we think there are plenty of reasons to join us for a mini winter getaway at the A.G. Thomson House Bed and Breakfast.  Winter isn’t leaving us anytime soon.  Bundle up and book your room at our luxurious Duluth Bed and Breakfast today!
