Cider Saturdays

October 9, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us every Saturday in September and October at Glensheen from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm for Cider Saturdays!


This fall we are highlighting two of the local cideries we have in town, Duluth Cider and Wild State Cider.

On Saturdays, in September you can find some of the best hard cider, warm cider, fall signature drinks, local beer, and wine available for purchase at the Cider Shack.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a better way to spend a Saturday!


How To Find The Cider 


First, you’ll need to check in at the Ticket House

Follow the yellow line from the parking lot to the Lake.

You will see the giant wooden shark and in front of that a wood hut and bar.


First, you’ll need to check in at the Ticket House

Follow the yellow line from the parking lot to the back of the Carriage House.

There you will find Glensheen’s garage doors wide open and cider we saved just for you.


Why Cider at Glensheen?

Did you know Chester Congdon loved apples? The Congdons have another mansion called the Congdon Castle out in Yakima Valley Washington. Here, Chester started the Congdon Orchards. ⁣

Congdon didn’t just like apples, he was obsessed with apples. He traveled all over the world researching different irrigation systems and learning about different types of apples.


So come down, take a tour, and enjoy a cider or two!


Want to skip the mansion tour and just come for the cider and to enjoy the grounds?


Purchase a $5 Grounds Admission as a non-tour guest. Guests 15 years & younger receive FREE Grounds Admission with the purchase of an adult Grounds Admission.


PLUS! A Grounds Admission gives you access to information on the outdoor educational signage and also fun facts about Glensheen you most likely didn’t know in the free Glensheen App.
