Minnesota is filled with beauty, no matter what time of year you visit – summers on the lakes, springtime as the trees and flowers bud, winter after it whitewashes everything and brings to mind thoughts of holiday trips to the cabin. Few things, however, are as stunning and awe-inspiring as fall colors in Duluth and on Lake Superior’s North Shore. Plan your fall color tour now, with a reservation at Cotton Mansion.
From the red maples to the golden oaks, fall paints the landscape with a harvest of colors. As you meander your way north on Hwy. 61, you’ll catch your breath over and over at the glory of the color. When you finish your gorgeous drive, why not spend your evening at Cotton Mansion, for a truly relaxing getaway?
Cotton Mansion, located in Duluth’s mansion district, was built in 1908 by Joseph Cotton, an attorney for US Steel. This stunning architectural showcase is filled with 15th century Italian marble, hand-carved stone and exotic wood. The public areas include the library, dining room, sunroom, foyer, veranda and living room, with its huge alabaster fireplace. Each area is decorated with style. The dining room contains the original dining set used by the Cotton family, exquisitely restored to its original beauty. This is where you will enjoy a delicious gourmet breakfast in the morning.
At night, you will sleep like royalty in one of the five stunning bedrooms in the main mansion, or you may choose from two separate bedroom suites in the carriage house, just a few feet away. The Master Suite includes delivery of your gourmet breakfast right to your room. Each room has either a fireplace or a double whirlpool, with several rooms offering both. The combination of this luxurious home and the artistry of the outdoors in the fall creates the perfect atmosphere for romance or relaxation.
We suggest you plan at least two days for your stay at Cotton Mansion in Duluth – one to see all the majestic color outdoors and another to soak in the atmosphere of this incredible home. Of course, to truly see all there is to enjoy in Duluth, you will most definitely want to come back again and again.
Fall color season is extremely popular in Duluth, so don’t hesitate to make your reservations. You can contact Cotton Mansion at 218-724-1775 or 800-228-1997, or make your reservation online right here. We look forward to sharing all the beauty of our home and surrounding area with you.
