“Fabulous B & B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

This was our 2nd visit at Solglimt B & B and we loved it both times. Wonderful location, very clean, comfortable atmosphere, friendly people, and delicious food. We will definitely visit it again and highly recommend it!

My husband and I sent four nights here as a belated honeymoon, having gotten marries this summer. Neither of us had been to a bed and breakfast before. The breakfasts are delicious - couldn't ask for better food. The rooms are well kept and clean, and the owners are wonderful and very helpful. We stayed in the Harbor room and really enjoyed it. It was quiet, fun, and relaxing, just what we needed.

Our first stay was in winter of 2012, so for our wedding anniversary we returned in fall. Our first trip we stayed in the loft, this time we splurged for the lake view suite. It was just wonderful. Two very comfortable chairs in front of a window overlooking Lake superior (right on the shore). We saw ships coming and going through the lift gate canal. On the warmer day we spent time on the beach sipping wine on a provided lawn chair. They also have a number of seating with tables on their porch, but visibility to the water is less. The be is king size and comfortable, bathroom very big with steam room.

Now the breakfast is start of the show, 3 course wonderfully prepared. Enjoyed time meeting other couples.

The owners were very accommodating and even served us breakfast an hour earlier than normal since we had to leave early.

I'm not a B&B person, but this place in an exception, highly recommended.

We had a great stay at Solglimt in early September, beginning with a warm welcome from Mary and tour of the house and continuing through late night chocolate chip cookies and a wonderful breakfast the next morning. Our only regret was that we didn't have more time to spend - we enjoyed touring Duluth and the North Shore but found ourselves thinking how nice it would be to spend more time at the B&B itself... "this would be perfect for a hot July day we could spend near the water. But, you know, it would also be a great place to sit during a snow storm and watch the flakes fall on Lake Superior."

We stayed in the Lake Superior suite and highly recommend it. There's no fireplace or bathtub but the views of the lake, the high ceiling, the sitting nook (perfect for relaxing and reading) and steam generator more than make up for it. I'm sure the other rooms are great, too, but we'll certainly ask for the Lake Superior one next time we're back. I've often thought that the mark of a good B&B is the owners' attention to the little things, and Mary and Brian had definitely put time into all sorts of details. From the aforementioned delicious cookies waiting when we arrived (and again when we got back after dinner!) to the gorgeous gardens and well-stocked fridge and coffee/tea area, they clearly put a lot of time and effort into making Solglimt a welcoming place and it shows. We're looking forward to visiting again and have already started recommending it to friends and family looking for a getaway to Duluth!

This was our second visit to Solglimit, the best B&B in Duluth. The lake views, the perfect suite and close proximity to Canal Park make this a great place to stay. Brian and Mary are most gracious hosts. You will enjoy your stay!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We loved having the view of the Lake and using the binoculars to check out the ships on the Lake. The steam shower was a treat. We could only enjoy one breakfast and it was a feast for the eyes and delicious too. Location perfect! everything wonderful.

Room Tip: Lake View worth it!

This was our first B&B stay and it's going to be hard to beat Solglimt! The location is perfect, less than a 5 min walk to Canal Park, and right on the beach of Lake Superior. They have so many complimentary amenities available to guests including beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas to enjoy the beach, snacks, all sorts of coffee, tea, and beverages, cookies (the best ever!), and binoculars to view the harbor. The breakfasts were amazing; 3 course gourmet dishes. The weather allowed breakfast to be served on the outdoor patio overlooking the lake. We stayed in the Park Point suite and had an amazing view. Our room was very clean and spacious and included a huge soaker tub with air jets, a fireplace and an incredibly comfortable bed. Mary and Brian were so friendly and made sure we had everything we needed but gave us our privacy. As a young newly married couple, we weren't sure what to expect staying at a B&B but we loved it and can't wait to go back!! Such a great experience, I'd recommend Solglimt to anyone!
