Ronald McDonald House Northland

The beautiful new Ronald McDonald House Northland in downtown Duluth opened in February 2021. 

We provide families with seriously ill and injured children from the Twin Ports and across the Northland a caring and comfortable home-away-from-home while they navigate a child’s health crisis.


  • A welcoming reception area where RMH staff will check-in families
  • A gorgeous kitchen with views of Lake Superior and the east Duluth skyline
  • A cozy and comfortable lounge with a stunning fireplace
  • Laundry facilities with commercial grade appliances
  • Five private guest rooms with ensuite bathrooms, decorated in cool and calm colors reflecting the beauty of the North Shore

  • All pediatric inpatient families at Essentia Health have access to the House for day use.
  • Overnight sleeping rooms are determined by patient acuity and require a Social Work referral.

Pop Tab Donation

Collecting pop can tabs makes a big difference. In fact, since its founding, the Pop Tab program has raised more than $800,000 for our chapter. Pop tabs can be donated locally at the Northland House. The Northland’s Pop Tab Drop house, generously crafted and donated by Saint Germain Cabinetry, is located in the lobby of the building and can be accessed by using the RMH intercom located on the outside of both lobby entrance doors or by calling 218.576.0865 to speak with a Manager for assistance.
