We were in Duluth for a friend's wedding and decided to stay at the Ellery due it its gorgeous online presentation and affordable prices. It was our first time to MN and we loved every minute of it. Why anyone would chose to stay at a hotel over a bed and breakfast is beyond me, especially when you have the option of such a beautiful place as Ellery! We stayed in the Ellery Suite and felt like WE were on our honeymoon thanks to the luxurious amenities, amazing breakfasts (the breakfasts are truly memorable - homemade rhubarb muffins!), gorgeous landscaping, wonderfully friendly hosts and a beautiful golden retriever to make you feel at home. We even took advantage of the in-room breakfast; just amazing. We've stayed in plenty of B&B's and this was, BY FAR, our favorite.

Room Tip: We stayed in Ellery Suite - great front porch, amazing linens, wonderful bathroom!

We decided, rather last-minute, to travel to Duluth for our "post-wedding-getaway." It was amazing! We stayed two nights in the Ellery Suite, and the third night was spent in the Daisy Suite. Both were fantastic! We chose to have breakfast served to our rooms each morning, which was DIVINE each and every morning, overstuffing us for the day! The roses and chocolates that greeted us upon our arrival from the "Romance Package" were gorgeous and delicious, and we had our champagne on the final evening which was also excellent! We were not much for talkers (we kept to ourselves most of the time we were there), but our hosts were gracious and available if we needed anything. I don't believe we will ever forget this experience, and we know we will be staying at the Ellery House when we return to the area! Absolutely no reservations about highly recommending the Ellery House to visitors- it is worth the money!!
**If staying in the Ellery Suite, do take your coffee out onto the balcony- that was our favorite part of the morning! Beautiful view, memorable quiet time together enjoying watching the area kids head off to school :)

My husband and I stayed in the Thomas Wahl room for two nights and it was very nice. I saw a glimpse of the two larger rooms and they seemed better for an extended stay or if you like a lot of space. The price for this B&B is very reasonable compared to others in Duluth. The house itself is beautiful and the decor is tasteful. The breakfast is so scumptious! Hearty egg bakes, muffins and fresh fruit that was beautifully presented. We had breakfast in our room which we loved! We will be back!

We were at the Ellery House for a leadership retreat with 3 other couples, so we took up the whole house. All of the rooms were comfortable and everyone had a good stay. My husband and I were in the Ellery Suite and found it very nice. Jim and Joan are wonderful hosts who make you feel very welcome. The breakfasts were amazing! The night before there is a card to leave for them so they know what you would like to drink with breakfast and if you have any food allergies. There is coffee out in the hallway in the morning. Breakfast can be served in the rooms or downstairs at the dining room table. We all ate together at the table. Jim brought out fruit trays for each couple first - beautifully presented and so tasty. Then the main dish (which was different each morning), also delicious. After a breakfast like that you only need a light lunch!
