What is the difference between the Canal View and the Harbor View?
If you are staying in a “Canal View” suite, you have a fantastic view of the Aerial Lift Bridge, downtown Duluth, and the ship canal. If you are staying in a “Harbor View” suite, you overlook the extensive Duluth/Superior harbor, and can enjoy beautiful sunsets right from your own balcony.
What is there to see in the winter from the South Pier Inn?
It’s wonderful to see these majestic boats passing through the canal in the winter. To see them laden with ice is incredible. While shipping ends for two months in the winter, you can still see eagles perched on ice flows, and the snow-covered Aerial Bridge, as the surrounding area takes on a magical feel in the winter as well. It’s truly a winter wonderland.
The Sola family, long time residents of Park Point, have long had a vision for the land that the inn is built on.
It was a beautiful day in June, 2002 when we cut the ribbon for the grand opening of the South Pier Inn.
The Duluth mayor and the youngest Solas – Tommy and Steve – cut the ribbon as the whole Sola family and many community leaders looked on.
