We just spent a lovely 2 nights in the Daisy Suite after Thanksgiving 2011. This was our second time to the Ellery House, the first was about 10 years ago. Not much has changed, but that's not a bad thing. I chose the Daisy Suite because we have been to Duluth so many times that I knew we'd want to spend time enjoying our rooms more than seeing the sights.
The suite of rooms were nice and clean and welcoming. The bath was quite large with a shower and a deep clawfoot tub with lovely leaded glass above. Cozy luxurious robes were also provided. We spent some time lounging on the day bed in the sun porch, playing games, reading and enjoying the ambiance. The bed was soft and comfortable and we had plenty of blankets to keep warm. You can see the lake from the sun porch especially because the leaves are off the tress.
The breakfast was excellent, more fresh fruit than we could eat each morning, all was delicious and filing. There was a very nice espresso machine that you could use at any time of day and a lot of tea choices, fresh baked cookies and snacks. Plenty of creature comforts to enjoy.
Jim and Joan were excellent hosts and made us feel welcome and cared for. Everyone I know that has stayed at the Ellery House has enjoyed it!
