The rooms are lovely and very well appointed, not missing a thing, the views are stunning, the breakfasts were scrumptious and "over the top", the grounds facing the lake are gorgeous, the snack bar available 24 hrs was a real treat, and the hosts are the best. This B&B is one of the best there is. Treat yourself to this fabulous property, you won't be disappointed. Go in the warm seasons so you can eat outside.

Room Tip: You should definitely get a "room with a view" of the lake.

As the other reviewers described, we were greeted at the door and given a full tour of the property including the stocked drink and snack bars. Although the inn has a 4-6 pm check in policy the owners were kind enough to accommodate our request for a 6:45 arrival.

We stayed in the Aerial Bridge Suite which features a view of the water and the property's "hidden garden." Binoculars are thoughtfully provided so one may take full advantage of the scenery outside the large picture window. The modern room's amenities include a wonderfully plush king-sized platform bed and glorious bathroom with a jet tub and walk in shower.

We took full advantage of the beachfront location in the outdoor lounge chairs. We walked along the lakeshore collecting sea glass. We also walked to canal park to shop, eat dinner and enjoy the other attractions.

After a wonderful sleep, breakfast was served outdoors at a single table to encourage chit-chat among guests. The weather was phenomenal. The food was only okay. I am a bit of a "foodie" and would not give the meal high marks. Luckily, the menu changes, so future guests may have a better experience in this regard.

All in all I was thrilled to have stumbled on this gem. I'll visit again.

Room Tip: We loved our room and would recommend it.

There is no other way to describe this B&B. The location on the shore of Lake Superior with the aerial lift bridge in view, beautufully landscaped gardens and patio areas is so relaxing. The breakfast was good and we were able to sit out on the patio area to eat as the weather was sunny and warm. I would highly recommend this is as a place to stay in Duluth.....you will not be disappointed!

Solglimt offers what every B & B should, a good mix of hospitality and privacy. Guests are warmly greeted and given a tour which includes the kitchen with a small fridge containing drinks and the living room which houses a sidebar with cookies, nuts and other small snacks. When we asked about putting our ice pack in the freezer, we were given a frozen pack to use during our stay and an admonishment to exchange it when we needed another. All guests are served breakfast at 9 a.m. and it is a 3 course affair. Come hungry and ready to exchange ideas about what to do and where to eat. The lovely lakeside gardens have some small private spaces. All rooms have their own bathrooms and sitting space and are individually appointed. Canal Park, where you can catch the trolley or enjoy wonderful food at the Lake Avenue Cafe, is with walking distance. We found that we could easily attend a play at the Depot and walk back via a footbridge which connects the Arena area to Canal Park. Don't wait; choose your room and make a reservation.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Harbor View Suite which has its own deck, but it is on the street side and the view of the harbor is beyond the houses and trees across the street. It was a lovely suite, but next time (there will be one), I'd opt for a room with a lakeside view.

We have only been to Solglimt on one occasion and nothing really stood out as exceptional or bad from our first experience. I do want to let people know that we recently scheduled a one night stay and due to a family emergency (my MIL fell and was taken to the hospital) we had to cancel our stay. We told them that we completely understood the need to charge us the $202 dollars for the night and hopefully we could come back for a visit another time. Mary's exact response was "Bummer for you all around" and she proceeded to charge our credit card the full amount. While the money is not a big issue, I think her response speaks volumes. If you are planning to stay with them just beware of their "bummer for you" cancellation policy and know that should an emergency arise you will not be offered a certificate or discount for a future stay.

Management response:Responded July 5, 2012

We had no way of knowing that there was a medical emergency for this guest because they never told us.They never asked us to work with them. They didn't even call us on the phone they sent us an email to cancel after our check in time. Here are their exact words " We had to go back to the cities unexpectedly and won't be coming tonight. We know you'll charge us and understand completely. Hopefully we can come visit another time. Thank you."
I am sorry the guest felt my response was inappropriate, I meant it to be a condolence, not being snide. Nobody wants their vacation cut short. No Innkeeper can make a customer happy and work with them when the customer is not forthcoming with the reason for their cancellation. We charged them because that is what they told us to do.
