NEW THIS YEAR: We brought in newly inspired decorations to fill the mansion with color and fun for the holidays! No matter if you’ve been before or if this will be your first time, Glensheen is a must-stop destination for your holiday vacation or trip to Duluth.

The entire estate glows during the winter, and after your tour, you are free to wander the grounds and explore to your heart’s desire. Inside the mansion, hundreds of feet of garland line railings and ropes, an 18-foot tall tree stands in the main entryway, fully lit and decorated, and trees of every style and color adorn every space. Not only can you experience refreshed decorations and themed rooms featuring 27 total trees, but we are also hiding 25 elves throughout the mansion to find as you take your tour. The sneaky elves like to hide in funny places throughout the mansion, making for a great scavenger hunt for guests of all ages! We look forward to welcoming you to Glensheen this holiday season!
