Wow! Unlike any B&B we have stay. You will love it too... From the time we walked in, the love that Brian and Mary have put into their heavenly B&B was evident - beautiful care to preserve the history of the home, the artwork and decor and its location on Lake Superior were amazing. We were a little sad that the garden was trying to come to life since they had snow only a few weeks ago (it's an excuse to return when it is in full bloom). I imagine that it makes it even more magical. My wife and I felt like we were in a different world while staying the 3 nightly at Solglimt. Check in process was great with Mary showing us around the Inn and the details of our room (Point Park suite). Wonderful hospitality. Our room (and the entire B&B was spotless). There is an Amazon echo in the room to listen to music, get the weather report, etc. The tub is air jetted and you can control the intensity of the bubbles which was so relaxing. The shower was great for me being 6'4" as it had a tall extension so there was no bending down - good hot water and pressure. Breakfast was equally beautiful and delicious - 3 courses and very filling. Brian was a wonderful breakfast host. Fresh local ingredients. We looked forward to meeting the other couples each morning. Mary was able to provide an earlier breakfast our last morning so that we could get to our boat tour on time. The view from our suite of the gardens and the Lake was beautiful. There was 2 chairs in the room for watching the sailboats race (Wednesday evenings all summer), oar boats or jet skis). There was many seating areas in the many different public spaces at the Inn. We especially liked the new roof top deck. Gave us nearly a 360 degree view of Lake Superior, the bridge, and the harbor. We had a wonderful time and are already planning on when we can return. Thank you to Brian and Mary for the great hospitality and all the hours of love and sweat you have poured into the B&B. It certainly shows.

This first class B&B is a very short walk over the bridge to many restaurants, shops and marina area. The B&B is right on the shore of Lake Superior so you can watch the big lake and ocean ships as they go into the shipping channel. Our room had a great view of the lake and gardens. There were many amenities in our room, including a fireplace, seating area, and a hot tub. Everything was top notch and clean. The whole house has wonderful art and there is a spacious common area, complete with fresh baked cookies! The hosts are excellent and our breakfast was delicious! This is what you look for when you are interested in staying at a real B&B.

Our first experience at a B&B exceeded expectations! Mary and Brian are super hosts that created a welcoming and perfect stay in Duluth. The location is great as you can walk to all Canal Park restaurants and even the Amsoil Arena. We stayed in the Nelson suite which is closest to the front door and dining area but we had no issues with hearing noise from those areas or noise from the street as that is your room view. Breakfast at 9am sharp is provided by Mary & Brian and it's a delicious 3-course meal that keeps you full enough to skip lunch. They also note what you've eaten during your stay to try not to repeat for your next stay (said a fellow regular guest we met). I was hesitant to think the meal would be awkward to eat with other guests but it was great to rehash your day with them and get ideas of what else you can do or go out to eat in/around Duluth. They allow 3 cars in their lot and then street parking. While we went in the winter, the pictures of their gardens in the summer look impeccable. We will always try to stay here when we visit Duluth and highly recommend it to friends & family!

We were a little aprehensive booking here as it was our first experience with a B&B. I think we started with the best! From the hospitality of Mary and Brian, the fantastic food and the views being right on Lake Supeior this was first class all the way. We can't wait to be able to stay there again.
