We stayed here over the weekend for grandma's marathon. The breakfasts were well put together. The care and attention to detail is clear. Brian and Mary definitely have a passion for what they do. The view of the lake is fantastic, with a small beach at the rear of the property. They were engaging, helpful and incredibly gifted at making... More

Snacks, tea, water readily available... More

This B&B is just outstanding. The room, the bed, the breakfasts were all wonderful. We were in Duluth just to get away for some private time together and Solglimt was what we needed. Mary and Brian are great hosts. We hope to be back!

The location is perfect. The Lake is right off the rear deck. Canal Park is an easy walk across the lift bridge. We were going to a concert at the DECC so we used the pedestrian bridge (Minnesota Slip Bridge) behind Bellisio's. The accomodations are absolutely wonderful. Our suite had a fireplace to take the chill off, very nice sheets... More

You're on Lake Superior with your own sand beach and views of the Lift Bridge. The garden provides private, cozy spots for admiring the sometimes rough and tumble lake. The house is a blend of modern and traditional, with the latest ecologically responsible updates. Your hosts are friendly and helpful and provide gourmet breakfasts as well as spot on advice...

Found this place by random luck and it was awesome! The location is pristine and beautiful, the views of Superior are amazing. The accommodations are amazing as well, we stayed in the loft and was perfect. We were walking distance to canal park as well. The owners are super nice and made us an awesome 3 course breakfast, wish we... More

I really can't think of a negative thing to say about our experience at Solglimt, so I will just write about the highlights for us. The location of this property just can't be beat. It's on the beach, and just across the bridge from Canal Park, so you are in walking distance to shops and restaurants (although don't plan on... More

Everything a charming B&B should be. Gracious hosts, wonderful atmosphere, great location, delicious breakfast, close to things to do, and quiet. The view of the lake and the ships, of all sizes, is great, and there are ample spots on their multi-level deck to sit and watch the lake. We brought our own wine, grabbed the wine glasses from your... More

Right on the shores of Lake Superior. Brian and Mary are gracious hosts. The gardens are lovely. Want a great view choose Lake Superior Suite, Arial Lift Bridge Room or Park Point Room. Harbour Suite gives a nice view of the harbor and Duluth skyline. You will hear horns as ships come and go from canal. Gardens are beautiful. You... More

This is a great place to stay... the hosts, Brain and Mary, are very friendly and accommodating. The house itself is spectacular with its fantastic landscaping, comfy, clean and well-appointed rooms. It's in a great waterfront location, just a short walk from the canal area with its many restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.
