Award Winning Site!

April 8, 2014

You’ve seen our new website and now we can announce that it is an award winning site!  Westmoreland Flint designed our new site and recently won a Gold Professional ADDY (American Advertising Award) for their creative design.

In case you haven’t ventured beyond our blog, I would invite you to check out a couple of our website features.  Duluth is full of fun and interesting things to do and we understand that sometimes you need to do something to fit your mood.  We have and “app” for that.  On our Things To Do page you tell us what you are feeling like and we give you suggestions to fit your mood.

We make choosing a room to fit your needs easy with our selection tool to help narrow the focus based on what you tell us you need.  Visit our Rooms page and test it out!

We usually have some kind of deal or package going on and now you can search by the month in which you want to visit to find the best.

Kids! We have something for you! Visit our Just For Kids page for fun games and coloring pages.

Of course, visiting us at the Edgewater Hotel & Waterpark is way more fun that visiting our website so make a reservation today and enjoy the fun!

Upgrades at The Edge

March 31, 2014

In addition to our new hot breakfast provided by Savories Catering, we have upgraded our fitness center and Sunrise Lounge.  A coffee shop and business center are next on the upgrade list.  We can’t wait for you to check out our new facilities!

New Fitness Center at The Edge in Duluth MN

The fitness center has been moved from its smaller location to a larger space so we could bring you all the best to keep you healthy and fit while staying at the Edgewater.  The new room has 3 treadmills (no more waiting!), two elliptical machines, a recumbent and an upright bicycle, two free weight benches, along with medicine balls and mats for all your fitness needs.  In addition to the beautiful view of Lake Superior, we have also installed 4 flat screen televisions with remotes.  Water, sanitizing wipes and towels are also provided.

The Sunrise Lounge has been a favorite spot to relax and now it’s even better!  Several new games have been added including darts, fooze ball and pool which can be played for less than a dollar.  We also installed a 60” and two 42” televisions so you have more options to view sports, news and other programming.

Soon we will have a coffee shop located in our main lobby which will feature Duluth Coffee.  Guests can purchase lattes, mochas, blended/ice drinks along with our famous cinnamon rolls and other baked goods.  It will be open 6 am – 2 pm daily.

A new business center will also be opening soon in our classic building.  It will have 2 computer stations, a printer, and a lounge area with flat screen television.  You can be away from home and still get everything done!

We are pleased to be able to offer more to our guests than ever before.  Come check out our new features as well as enjoying what makes us great – the Edge Waterpark!

Duluth MN | Spring Break

February 17, 2014

To a lot of folks spring break means a break from school and a vacation to someplace with a lot of people in swimsuits holding cool beverages.  To us at the Edge Waterpark, it means pretty much the same thing!  We have 80 degrees of water fun and cool drinks for kids and adults.

 

You can have the best of both worlds when you visit Duluth during the spring break holiday.  Outside the weather is perfect for skiing, skating, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, snowboarding, and sledding.  Duluth has lots of fluffy snow and ice and the temps aren’t too bitterly cold.  It’s a great time to be outside!  There are so many things to do in Duluth during this wonderful winter, ah I mean, spring break.

 

All the restaurants serve up all kinds of warm, comfort foods that are sure to fill you up after a day playing in the snow.  The Chicken Tetrazzini at Grandma’s Restaurant is a signature dish – and don’t forget to get an order of the best onion rings when you go.  Add a little spice to dinner with a meal at Little Angie’s, Azteca’s Mexican Grill or Mexico Lindo.  Duluth has everything from Italian to Japanese to Thai and everything in between for food options.

 

And when the weather outside is frightful, inside the Edge Waterpark will be warm and delightful.  Take a few turns on the lazy river or enjoy a relaxing moment in the hot tub.  The four-story slides are sure to thrill the adventurous side of you.  And if water isn’t your thing, we have the Paradise Cove Arcade with more than 40 games to play.

 

Visit Duluth and enjoy winter and spring at the same time!  Book today and pack your bags for a spring break vacation that you will truly enjoy.

Lake Superior Ice Caves | Apostle Islands National Lakeshore

February 16, 2014

You’ve seen them on the national news and have heard about them from friends who have gone – the Lake Superior ice caves in the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore are accessible by foot this year and they are AMAZING!  But this is a limited time offer!  Once the temps start to rise, the ice pack will become too unstable to walk on so take advantage of seeing them now.

The walk is about a mile from the mainland and the cave cliffs run about two miles along the shore.  Most visitors allow at least three to four hours visiting and enjoying the natural beauty.  Dress in layers and wear comfortable hiking or walking boots as the terrain can be uneven and slippery.  Be sure to check conditions before heading out.

Plan a weekend adventure by staying in Duluth and visiting the ice caves, just a short drive along the northern shore of Wisconsin.  After a day of hiking and viewing the caves, relax and enjoy the warmth of our hot tub and indoor waterpark.  Reserve now to get the best rate before winter is over!

Are you planning a trip to see the Ice Caves? Stay with us at The Edge for an easy day trip to this amazing experience. Reserve our Sea Cavers Discount and stay from $75 Sunday – Thursday or save 20% off Friday & Saturday. This offer is valid now through March 31, 2014. Call 800-777-7925 to reserve this special offer today!

Special based on availability. Offer may change or end without notice. Some restrictions may apply. Not valid with any other group or offer.
