Just concluded an amazing Anniversary Weekend in Duluth with Jim and Joy at their meticulously cared for historic home made B&B. They were wonderful hosts and I encourage anyone looking for a restful getaway with their spouse or significant other to make arrangements as soon as possible. If you enjoy history and the romance it spawns, this is the place.

As we approached the front porch, Joy and Jim (the owners) welcomed us to their home. They took us on a tour of the house and made sure that we were comfortable. Breakfast was delivered to our room and was delicious. Joy and Jim gave us some restaurant tips for dinner, and provided well-wishes as we continued on our trip.... More

The Firelight Inn is a 1910 Mansion on the side of a bluff overlooking Lake Superior. The proprietors, Jim and Joy, purchased the home 19 years ago, remodeled it to be a B&B, and have operated it ever since. The remodeling was artfully done to maintain the integrity of the period while adding all the modern amenities. Most of us... More

We stayed at the Firelight Inn more than 20 years ago, when it was then called the Barnum House. That wonderful experience inspired us to stay at numerous B&Bs across the US and Europe in the years that followed. I was afraid to return, because rarely does a second impression out shine the first. But the Firelight Inn and its... More

Went to Duluth to spend a weekend at the Firelight. We were greeted at the door and given a quick lower level tour. Bags were carried upstairs for us. Awesome Superior room! More room than we needed, but shy not!!! Breakfast was wonderful both days! Any room would be awesome! Highly recommend this B&B as many before me already have!

My one and only complaint if you could even call it that, was the love poem gift basket. It was way overpriced for what was included. Cheap chocolates, $3 love poem book, bath soap which is the exact same as what you receive complimentary in the bathroom to use in the jacuzzi, 2 small spounges, cheap bodycology lotion from walmart($3.97),...
