My wife and I recently stayed at Solglimt for two nights for a special occasion. We had seen the great reviews on tripadvisor and were glad that they still had an opening when all other top reviewed B&B's in Duluth were full a couple weeks prior to our stay. Our room, the Harborview suite, was very nice. It had plenty... More

Solglimt, Owner at Solglimt Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

It is too bad that our guests found fault with our lake shore bed and breakfast and chose to voice their concerns in a public forum rather than giving us a chance to resolve their issues. We did replace the batteries on the DVD remote but they didn’t tell us that that did not fix the problem. We could have... More

B&B is beautifully located, right by the beach while being in walking distance to downtown. Rooms are modern, very clean and arranged for best view on lake superior. Everything is top quality, bed, bathroom, fireplace, electronics. Helpful & dedicated owners manage the B&B with great attention to detail. Very happy with my choice.

We stayed in the Loft and really enjoyed our time at the B&B. It is so close to Canal Park that you can walk around easily and see the ships come in from the inn. It's great for a walk on the beach right in their backyard. The Innkeepers are very friendly and generously provide guests with a fridge of... More

We want to keep this amazing place a well kept secret! But I'm certain that word of mouth is spreading faster than the speed of light. Soon everyone will now how phenomenal this B&B is and we will never find an availability ever again! Woe is us! Joy to the world.

What a great house; with up to date amenities and the latest in cool updates, the house is awesome. Beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The back yard is lovely, with great seating areas and stairs down to the beach with chairs you can take with. Breakfast is not only large, like 4 course if I remember correctly but it is... More

The Grovers have a lovely B&B on the shore in Duluth, MN. The accommodations are exceptional and the food superb. They were especially caring to my husband who experiencing some back problems and made our stay all the more pleasant with that care.

My sister and I spent the weekend at Solglimt on a weekend trip to Duluth. We stayed in the Kandinsky suite which was delightful. The breakfasts were delicious and Brian and Mary were helpful with restaurant suggestions. I would definitely stay here again. Much more interesting than the hotels close by.

I joined my husband on a business trip to Duluth, and we stayed at the Solglimt on August 22-24, 2010. I researched our trip via the internet and found the Solglimt. I was fascinated by this B&B. It is a totally different feel from any other B&B that we have stayed in - very laid back and casual. We stayed... More
