FREE Snowshoe Rental

Starting January 14, 2022 Friday, Saturday, and Sunday during tour hours through the end of March, (or until the snow melts) all members and tour guests will receive a free snowshoe rental with the purchase of a Full Mansion tour, Classic Tour or Grounds Admission.

Since Chester Congdon was a lover of the estate and an advocate of the North Shore, the old-school wooden snowshoes are a perfect enhancement at Glensheen.

Glensheen encourages folks to explore off the path! If merely experiencing the 12-acre, historic estate from paved pathways, folks are missing out. With snowshoes, guests can explore areas they wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to experience… or didn’t even realize existed at Glensheen.

To enhance the grounds exploration experience, there is educational signage across the estate making a snowshoe rental an added perk to a mansion tour. Plus, guests can follow along on the Glensheen’s free app to learn more about the estate as well.

If guests simply want to stay outside, they can explore the estate and not the mansion with a Grounds Admission that is available for $5.

The snowshoe experience is complete with various types and sizes of snowshoes for a wide range of people, including kid sizes.
