The holidays are the perfect time to slow down, step out of your routine and spend time with the people who are most important. At Odyssey Resorts, it’s easy to leave the ordinary behind and explore something new together. Whether you’re looking for an intimate romantic getaway for two, a spacious destination for your extended family, or a fun, low-hassle trip with friends, you have options. Between Duluth and Grand Marais, you’ll find eight scenic, roomy and comfortable resorts, always with exceptional service. Here’s what to expect when you spend the holidays with Odyssey Resorts this winter.
Thanksgiving: Thursday, November 24
A holiday dedicated to gratitude and celebrating the special people in our lives, Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to bring your closest friends or family members up north. Many of our units have spacious dining areas, multiple bedroom options, and full kitchens, so you can bring your tradition to the North Shore and cook everyone’s favorite dishes! Prefer to leave the cooking to us? Enjoy dinner at Ledge Rock Grille or Moguls Grille, where a Thanksgiving meal will be served. Afterwards, spend the evening playing board games, watching football, or taking a nap before heading out for an adventure with one of our seasonal guided experiences the next day.
If you’re staying at Odyssey Resorts in Grand Marais or Lutsen, be sure to attend the Oh Ole Night Parade and Fireworks or the North Shore Winery Christmas Market, both on Nov. 25! Then, add a new unforgettable family tradition to your plans, with a visit to the nearby Superior National Forest where you can cut your own Christmas tree. There’s no better way to take a piece of the North Shore home with you to enjoy throughout the holiday season!
Christmas: Sunday, December 25
If you celebrate Christmas, why not spend it with Odyssey Resorts? Nothing compares to waking up to snow and seeing the view of Lake Superior right outside your window this time of year. Whether you begin your getaway on Christmas Eve and spend Christmas morning at Odyssey or spend Christmas day at home before coming up North, make it your own tradition with cozy drinks by the fire while watching snowflakes fall outside. Add in a sauna, jacuzzi or indoor swim for even more festivities!
New Year’s Eve: Saturday, December 31
Spend New Year’s Eve somewhere special this year! If you’re looking for an urban adventure not far from home where you can explore all Duluth has to offer yet stay somewhere secluded, quiet and serene, check out our resorts in or near the city. Looking for something off the beaten path? With destinations in and near Grand Marais, you can truly get away from it all and make New Year’s Eve all your own.
Valentine’s Day: Tuesday, February 14
Make Valentine’s Day romantic with a surprise trip to the North Shore with someone special. Enjoy fine dining and drinks at one of our on-site restaurants before spending quality time together. Connect with a guided experience, relax under the stars, or indulge in a couple’s massage. However you spend the holiday, it’s sure to be one to remember.
