We really LOVED this B&B! The house is lovely, and the view is spectacular! The hosts are very gracious and have put a lot of thought into the details! It was nice to have hot chocolate, tea, and coffee available - as well as pop and bottled water. The snacks (Chex Mix, pretzels, cashews, and trial mix) and fresh cookies... More

We are so pleased that you had a great stay! We enjoyed meeting both of you and visiting with you. We will look forward to your return. Kandinskys Loft has the European Pillow top bed in it. It is a little more plush. Our other suites have the Serta perfect sleeper beds and are a bit more firm. Mary More

It has taken me far too long to write this review, but my sentiments have remained unchanged since our experience at the Solglimt. Mary and Brian are the most gracious hosts a traveller could ever hope to encounter. Although our travels were short (we have happily planted our roots in Duluth, MN) our family who joined us at the Solglimt... More

I was really at home, treated like a visiting friend or family member. Mary and Brian graciously upgraded me to the premier quarters, since there was room. This wasn't something I asked for, but it was very much appreciated. The house is comfortable and beautifully adorned with an interesting art collection. The view of Lake Superior is dramatic. The breakfast... More

This CONTEMPORARY B&B was terrific...right on the Lake Superior shoreline! We had a delightful evening and a wonderful breakfast served on glass tables with white table cloths. Very nice hosts and we loved our room at the "top" the loft! Dave and Sue, Rice Lake, Wi.

The rooms are lovely and very well appointed, not missing a thing, the views are stunning, the breakfasts were scrumptious and "over the top", the grounds facing the lake are gorgeous, the snack bar available 24 hrs was a real treat, and the hosts are the best. This B&B is one of the best there is. Treat yourself to this... More

As the other reviewers described, we were greeted at the door and given a full tour of the property including the stocked drink and snack bars. Although the inn has a 4-6 pm check in policy the owners were kind enough to accommodate our request for a 6:45 arrival. We stayed in the Aerial Bridge Suite which features a view... More

There is no other way to describe this B&B. The location on the shore of Lake Superior with the aerial lift bridge in view, beautufully landscaped gardens and patio areas is so relaxing. The breakfast was good and we were able to sit out on the patio area to eat as the weather was sunny and warm. I would highly... More

Solglimt offers what every B & B should, a good mix of hospitality and privacy. Guests are warmly greeted and given a tour which includes the kitchen with a small fridge containing drinks and the living room which houses a sidebar with cookies, nuts and other small snacks. When we asked about putting our ice pack in the freezer, we... More

We have only been to Solglimt on one occasion and nothing really stood out as exceptional or bad from our first experience. I do want to let people know that we recently scheduled a one night stay and due to a family emergency (my MIL fell and was taken to the hospital) we had to cancel our stay. We told... More

We had no way of knowing that there was a medical emergency for this guest because they never told us.They never asked us to work with them. They didn't even call us on the phone they sent us an email to cancel after our check in time. Here are their exact words " We had to go back to the... More

By chance, we read about this place in 2006, and decided to give it a try. We had never stayed at a B&B before, so considered it an adventure we couldn't pass up. Little did we know that we would return at least twice a year, and have racked up over 25 nights there over the years. We've tried all... More
