Now is your chance to see a whole different side of the grounds of Glensheen from Tischer Creek to the shore line of Lake Superior in a Kayak. This is the  perfect activity to break up the monotony of the pandemic and practice safe social distancing.

Once you have all your equipment head out into the beautiful waters of Lake Superior right off the shore and see the mansion and grounds in a whole new way. Paddle up Tischer Creek right near the mansion and learn some more information about the estate and grounds. Make sure to keep your eyes open for some animals that like to call Glensheen home. Tickets for mansion and ground tours are sold separately.
