Veranda Suite | GG Barnum Mansion | By Heirloom Vacations
The historic home of shipping and grain baron George G. Barnum was built in 1910. The home was built large enough to showcase art collected by Mr Barnum as he traveled the world, and accommodate the friends he acquired along his storied lifetime. With an eye on the historical features of both the house and man, this one of a kind location has undergone a dramatic transformation to become a luxury boutique hotel. The GG Barnum combines its rustic Northern Minnesota history with modern amenities for an authentic and unforgettable stay in the Zennith City. Situated on a dead-end street adjoining Oregon Creek in the quiet Congdon mansion neighborhood, The GG Barnum Boutique Hotel is equally suited for business or pleasure. The Veranda Suite of the GG Barnum Mansion is a beautifully moody room with dark walls and an oversized leather chair that makes you want to spend your time in Duluth indoors. This suite boasts a state of the art Samsung Picture Frame SmartTV that displays beautiful works of art, a jetted bathtub and separate shower. The room includes a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker, and access to Netflix and Hulu. Venture out of your private space and enjoy the shared living areas, grab a game for some play time, pull a book from our custom built book shelf for a little down time, or just spend quality time with your traveling companion. The living and dining areas feature a beautiful grand piano, large dining space, and plenty of places to sit and relax. Our favorite spot, and one of the more remarkable areas of the home, is the three season, impeccably decorated, enclosed porch, make sure to spend a little time here (this is a 3 season space and is not heated in the winter months).
