We have been to the Ellery House twice and have been struck by the warmth and welcome of our host Jim. In business for over 25 years, Jim still has passion and energy for connecting with guests and making them feel taken care of. Housed in an 1890 Queen Victorian home, it has the antiques, vintage china etc..that one would... More

We loved our stay at the Ellery House. It was the perfect place to just settle in for a weekend away. Enjoying sunshine, looking at the lake, and sitting by a fire - what better way to pass a cold winter weekend.

We visited Duluth last june for 4 days in our three week holiday in Minnesota and Cape Cod. We had a great time in this beautiful house. The rooms are nicely decorated, spacious enough and clean. Jim, the owner, is a great guy, we had long talks along breakfast about the big differences between Europe and the USA. And this... More

Beautiful, old Victorian in an interesting neighborhood, engaging innkeeper and wonderful breakfast--what more can one ask for? The house is well kept and Jim and Joan are great hosts. Also, the price was reasonable. We stayed in Lila's Room. We would go back. Not much more to be said.

Jim was a great host and the breakfast was amazing - lots of wonderful fruit and the egg dish was fabulous. I like the option of having breakfast in the room. We stayed in the Thomas Wahl room and enjoyed breakfast looking out over the lake and the ice flows. Very comfortable room.

My husband and I stayed at the Ellery House for a week to relax, visit the hawk migration, enjoy the magic of Lake Superior. We have stayed at the Ellery House before, three years ago, and loved it. We loved it this time, too! Jim and Joan are excellent hosts, and the house is simply gorgeous. We stayed in Daisy's... More

Not providing a good value for the price and not being kept up - needs to be freshened up - looking a bit worn and tattered. Not the best location - on a busy noisy street. Plus got sick after eating the cream cheese egg bread pudding and bacon for breakfast.

Last week, I jumped in the car for an impromptu trip to Duluth to do some exploring of historic homes and to view the beautiful Tiffany windows in a couple of the churches. I had no specific plans and, on the way, looked into the reviews for the B&Bs in Duluth. After reading the reviews, I selected The Ellery House... More

If this place is ranked 5th in the city then the other 4 must be unbelieveable -- arrived on time to be greeted by the host -- since we had been to the city many times before no need for references to where to eat -- Beautiful house -- sherry and port left out as was any type of coffee... More

My husband and I recently stayed in the smallest,cheapest room they offer and it was more than adequate. The hosts are very interactive- even sat down with us at the breakfast table. The breakfasts were fabulous as was the conversation with the guests and hosts. We always enjoy strolling along the neighborhoods in Duluth, amongst all the mansions, when we... More
