We recently stayed for 2 nights at Solglimt and I could not have been more pleased with our visit. Mary & Brian greeted us when we arrived and made us feel completely at home. The first night we stayed in Kandinsky's Loft and that room was very fun, with artistic touches in every corner of the room. One note about... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. We enjoyed meeting you and visiting with you. Glad you enjoyed our breakfasts. It was so good you could move into the the Lake Superior Suite for your second night. Our bed in the Loft is actually a queen bed not a double. The Loft room... More

We recently spent three night at Solglimt Lakeshore B and B. We found the location excellent as I was attending a quilting convention and my husband had to stay "home" through the day. WiFi was excellent, something my husband needed as he worked from Duluth during our stay. It was just a couple of minutes walk into town and restaurants.... More

Loved staying at Solglimt. Very comfortable accommodations. Brian & Mary are wonderful hosts and made us feel at home. Highly recommend this B&B,far exceeded our expectations. We will be staying here again. Mary recommended getting dinner at the Duluth Grill. That also was a fine choice. Tasty Breakfast, wonderful variety of foods and flavors. Very tastefully done in.

Nice accommodations. Blend of old and new. View is amazing. Gracious host. Easy walk to the shops and resteraraunts in Canal Park. As an introvert I was a little skeptical of the sit down breakfast with all the other guests. Granted it was only two other couples. What a gift to be in their presence. Fine food and company. It...

We stayed at Solglimt to have close access to the marina. Our hosts, Brian and Mary, were very accommodating with our odd requests and gave great recommendations for restaurants in the area. Our room was very comfortable and the tub was fabulous after a cold and wet day. The breakfasts each morning were healthy and wonderful. We will definately recommend... More

We really LOVED this B&B! The house is lovely, and the view is spectacular! The hosts are very gracious and have put a lot of thought into the details! It was nice to have hot chocolate, tea, and coffee available - as well as pop and bottled water. The snacks (Chex Mix, pretzels, cashews, and trial mix) and fresh cookies... More

We are so pleased that you had a great stay! We enjoyed meeting both of you and visiting with you. We will look forward to your return. Kandinskys Loft has the European Pillow top bed in it. It is a little more plush. Our other suites have the Serta perfect sleeper beds and are a bit more firm. Mary More

It has taken me far too long to write this review, but my sentiments have remained unchanged since our experience at the Solglimt. Mary and Brian are the most gracious hosts a traveller could ever hope to encounter.

I was really at home, treated like a visiting friend or family member. Mary and Brian graciously upgraded me to the premier quarters, since there was room. This wasn't something I asked for, but it was very much appreciated. The house is comfortable and beautifully adorned with an interesting art collection. The view of Lake Superior is dramatic.

This CONTEMPORARY B&B was terrific...right on the Lake Superior shoreline! We had a delightful evening and a wonderful breakfast served on glass tables with white table cloths. Very nice hosts and we loved our room at the "top" the loft! Dave and Sue, Rice Lake, Wi.
