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 were given a frozen pack to use during our stay and an admonishment to exchange it when we needed another. All guests are served breakfast at 9 a.m. and it is a 3 course affair. Come hungry and ready to exchange ideas about what to do and where to eat. The lovely lakeside gardens have some small private spaces. All rooms have their own bathrooms and sitting space and are individually appointed. Canal Park, where you can catch the trolley or enjoy wonderful food at the Lake Avenue Cafe, is with walking distance. We found that we could easily attend a play at the Depot and walk back via a footbridge which connects the Arena area to Canal Park. Don't wait; choose your room and make a reservation.
