No other Duluth MN bed breakfasts offer a more intimate experience with Lake Superior's shores. Right here in Canal Park, Solglimt brings you as close to the Lake as you can get! Solglimt, is on a seven-mile strip of sand reaching out into Lake Superior’s clear blue. Relax in your perfectly appointed room and head down for a delicately prepared gourmet meal, then head out to explore our gardens, the shore, the ships and the city beyond.

We loved our stay here. It was the start of a trip around Lake Superior. We walked to dinner across the bridge. The breakfast was one we won't forget as we sat on the patio and looked out over the lake. Mary and Brian are artist at running a BnB,

If you want to treat yourself to a bed and breakfast with an awesome view of lake superior from your room, access to the beach out the front door, comfy bed, linens, towels, chairs, a jetted tub and gas fireplace, scrumptious 3 course breakfasts and fabulous hosts Mary and Brian who will pamper you to the core, look no further. BOOK SOLGLIMT.

Solglimt B&B is what happens when a spectacular location intersects with genuinely warm hosts. Mary and Brian have designed a setting without equal, impeccably appointed and topped with gourmet breakfasts to delight the senses and create indelible memories. Travelers who appreciate art will love the Kandinsky loft, a space where artistic forms envelop a comfortable setting, accentuated with dormer daylighting and the music of your choice via a smart speaker. Dramatic views of Lake Superior and the lift bridge throughout the house where guests can find their favorite vistas indoors or from one of the outdoor patios/decks. A stroll on the endless sandy beach, a walk across the lift bridge to Canal Park, or along the boardwalk are part of the Solglimt charm. I have included a photo of my wife walking along the Solglimt beach on a beautiful late October afternoon. Mary and Brian have curated a hospitality gem we will never forget. Thank you!

The Solglimt B&B is amazing inside and its location on Lake Superior is superb! Duluth has become a pricey place to stay so I opted to pay a bit more for this beautiful B&B right on the lake and within walking distance to all the shops, restaurants, and sites of Canal Park. My son and I had bicycled from St. Paul to Duluth over three days, and the Solglimt was the perfect oasis and end to our journey. A generous selection of beverages, snacks, and homemade cookies were available, and of course Lake Superior right off the back deck which was the perfect temperature for a refreshing swim on a hot day. The breakfast was good, but after reading descriptions of organic and locally sourced items I did expect something more from a $300+/night B&B. Some 3rd street bakery breads and local jams/jellies would have been nice to choose from along with a selection of fresh fruit. The Solglimt has definitely distinguished itself from other B&B's with its exceptional interior, amenities, and location, but its breakfast left me expecting more.

Brian and Mary are the ideal innkeepers. Very hospitable. The inn is very clean and well kept with a lot of updating. The grounds out back are the star tho and then you have BREAKFAST. A gourmet 3 course breakfast awaits you with wonderful staff. I can’t recommend this place enough!!

The Solglimt Bed and Breakfast is one of those places that perfectly complements its setting. The inn itself is a wonderful combination of design and function. We stayed in the Lake Superior suite, which has an unparalleled view of the lake. Breakfast is fabulous. Highly recommended.

Mary and Brian have one of the best Bed and Breakfasts we have ever enjoyed. We travel A Lot and have lived abroad in three major cities. We have had extraordinary experiences. We would put Solglimt at the top of our list. First, we were the only guests on a cold weeknight and they offered us a wonderful upgrade. The Aerial Bridge room looked out from a big picture window onto Lake Superior and the sunrise was spectacular (probably not their doing, but still...:). The residence is spacious and airy and beautifully decorated. Guests are welcome all over and the nooks and crannies are full of delights (like homemade cookies and choc kisses). The breakfast was delicious and filling. Scones and fresh salads and little omelets with bacon. We had a coffee service in our lovely room before breakfast that was relaxing and cozy. We did not eat lunch either day and were not starving by dinner (but, of course, we could walk into Canal Park in 10minutes and we had come to sample Duluth!) This B&B is one we will eagerly visit again. We love the Lake and the access is perfect - unlike any other experience we have had in Duluth. The hosts are lovely, the food is great, the amenities luxurious....you will not be disappointed.

What an amazing few days at this wonderful B&B. Due to our late reservations we had to switch rooms to accommodate the dates we wanted to stay. They made this so easy. We packed our bags and went on our way. They moved everything from one room to the other when the new room was available. We stayed in the Lake Superior Suite the first night. Absolutely beautiful room with a king bed and a very large bathroom with double sinks and a steam shower. A sitting area overlooks the back area and the lake. It was so relaxing. The second and third nights we stayed in the Oscar Nelson Suite which faces the bay area and has a large private balcony. This suite is smaller, but still has a very nice sitting area with a gas fireplace. While the rooms are wonderful, what really makes this place is the rest of the house and the hosts. There are many sitting areas with wonderful views throughout. Mary and Brian are so friendly and accommodating. We felt right at home with them. We showed up early, hoping to just leave our vehicle in the driveway while we wandered the area. Even though we were 3 hours early, Mary immediately welcomed us in. There is a walkway down to the lake and many comfortable sitting areas outside, along with many relaxing gardens and a coy pond. Breakfast each morning was amazing. They ask food preferences when reservations are made and they work hard to accommodate those. It’s a three-course meal with hot beverages and juices. Because of CoVid many changes have been implemented, but they have done a wonderful job of maintaining the comfortable feel of a B&B.
