The famous and historic Glensheen Mansion in Duluth has had big things going for it recently.
Now they’re introducing a new tour.
The Premier Tour is the most exclusive tour you can take.
You need to call 48 hours in advance to book it, because that way the perfect 2-hour tour can be planned for you.
For the $150 tour, you let guides know what you’re interested in seeing and the tour is formatted around that.
“So, you get to see all five floors of the house, you have a complete grounds tour of our seven acre estate, you get to see all of the nooks and crannies spaces as well,” explained marketing manager Jane Pederson.
Glensheen officials tell us this summer has been one of their busiest in recent years.
This past Saturday they had more than 100 more visitors than this time last year.
In fact, since the fiscal year 2013 through fiscal year 2015, there has been a 39 percent increase in revenue.
Because of that, they want to say “thank you.”
“We wouldn’t be able to be where we’re at without the help and support of the community,” continued Pederson.
Other than the Premier Tour, there are two other new tours this summer.
The kayak tour shows off Glensheen’s pier and Lake Superior, and a self-guided tour has turned out to be perfect for families with little ones.
