My wife and I stayed here a few years ago and stayed in the Daisy Suite which is a great room. Most people have already said how helpful the owners are which is true. It is a truely beautiful house and the amenities are great. Lots of games, books, etc. 2 things I would've liked to know ahead of time so I will share these with you. One great thing to me is that at the time when we stayed there, the owners spent the night outside the house. For some they may like someone to be there at all times but I preferred it that they were gone - less noise. That brings me to the reason for the 4 instead of 5 rating. This house is along a main road on a hill. So because of that there is always traffic noise since everyone has to rev the engine to get up the hill. It slowed down greatly after midnight but there is always the person without a muffler that would wake us up. We were there in the fall with no leaves so perhaps it is less noisy in the summer and was also a Saturday night but certainly we could hear it from the Daisy Suite all night. There is nothing the owners can do about this but thought people should know.

We just spent a lovely 2 nights in the Daisy Suite after Thanksgiving 2011. This was our second time to the Ellery House, the first was about 10 years ago. Not much has changed, but that's not a bad thing. I chose the Daisy Suite because we have been to Duluth so many times that I knew we'd want to spend time enjoying our rooms more than seeing the sights.

The suite of rooms were nice and clean and welcoming. The bath was quite large with a shower and a deep clawfoot tub with lovely leaded glass above. Cozy luxurious robes were also provided. We spent some time lounging on the day bed in the sun porch, playing games, reading and enjoying the ambiance. The bed was soft and comfortable and we had plenty of blankets to keep warm. You can see the lake from the sun porch especially because the leaves are off the tress.

The breakfast was excellent, more fresh fruit than we could eat each morning, all was delicious and filing. There was a very nice espresso machine that you could use at any time of day and a lot of tea choices, fresh baked cookies and snacks. Plenty of creature comforts to enjoy.

Jim and Joan were excellent hosts and made us feel welcome and cared for. Everyone I know that has stayed at the Ellery House has enjoyed it!

Room Tip: If you just want a sleeping room and good breakfast, try the Thomas Lake or Lila's room. If you're looking to spend more time in your rooms, try one of the suites.

Tastefully restored home with nice amenities - very warm, clean, and especially welcoming. Perfectly located - close to Superior Street, Canal Park, access to trails, the scenic road (61), etc. Jim received us and provided exceptional suggestions. Without being overbearing or intrusive, Jim was a great host. We enjoyed the privacy of the facilities and the fabulous breakfast - fresh fruits, freshly prepared warm dishes (eggs, bacon, etc.) and a wide-range of beverages (evening and morning). We prefer B&B's and this is a quintessential winner. Great value. We will be back!

This B&B exceeded our expectations! Jim is probably one of the most kind people I have ever met and the hospitality there is just incredible. Our room was wonderful. Since we went later in the year (november) there were no leaves on the trees so we had a great view of the Lake. It's very close to everything you need to get to in Duluth and the food is absolutely mouthwatering. There is no way you could not fall in love with this place. We will be coming back for sure.

I was beginning graduate school in Duluth and stayed at the Ellery for 3 trips, for a total of 9 nights, while looking for a permanent place to rent in Duluth! Jim & Joan are the most knowledgable hosts one could ask for. They seem to know every detail of the area and are most gracious as well.

Breakfast was superb every morning. Not only does the food taste outstanding, but it is presented beautiful as well. The rooms are comfortable and decorated period classly.

Highly recommend staying at The Ellery House
