Solglimt Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 11 Duluth B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 1, 2013

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 the Loft is that the bed is a Double, not a Queen or King like the other rooms.

The second night we stayed in the Lake Superior Room and that was magnificent. Honestly, we could have sat and watched the Lake out of the huge bay windows for hours. The name of the house, Solglimt, comes from the Danish word for the morning light shining on the water. When we woke up Sunday morning, we did see solglimt on the Lake and it felt very special.

Mary is an excellent chef and the food she prepared was magnificent. Examples of the home made breakfast we were served included blueberry-peach gallette (type of flatbread), rhubarb scones and wild rice quiche.

I cannot recommend this bed & breakfast highly enough, it is a place I know we will be visiting many times in the future

Room Tip: The Lake Superior room has an unbelievable view of the Lake. Try to get it if at all possible

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 and the Park Point Suites are both queen beds. We look forward to your next visit!!

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. Make sure you travel beyond the B and B to the end of the island - an entire different world down there.

Room Tip: We were on the street side and it was a bit noisy, but once you closed the windows tight, not too ba...

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 was a splendid time. We usually get a hotel in Canal Park when we go to Duluth- Solglimt will now be the destination. Brian and Mary are gracious host eager to make your stay rememberable. Go enjoy!

Room Tip: Check out the website to view rooms. Ours was the lift bridge. Modern design.

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 this B&B as the place to stay in Duluth.

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms - and if you don't get a room with a view of the lake or bridge, there is...

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 were a welcome touch.
The weather was not cooperative, but we went outside anyway! Beautiful decks and patios with a to-die-for view!.
We stayed in the loft and loved the decor. It was fun and colorful and I did NOT feel like I was in my great grandmas bedroom! : )
Breakfast was SPECTACULAR! YUMMY and very thoughtful of the gluten free guests!
Beware - for the shy- the divider between the sleeping area and bathroom is a curtain. We found the bed a little too soft for us - but that is completely personal preference!
We will be back!

Room Tip: The LOFT has a view of the Aerial Lift Bridge through the skylight. (It is also on the third floor...

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.

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. Although our travels were short (we have happily planted our roots in Duluth, MN) our family who joined us at the Solglimt came from far away, and it was the perfect setting for a long-overdue family get-together which also happened to also be our wedding! The house is beautifully decorated with an eclectic array of art, and everything seems to have been crafted to fit exactly where it is placed. The hosts have wonderful taste! Each room is very carefully planned to capture the essence of Duluth and the views of Lake Superior are breathtaking. We stayed in the Lake Superior suite which is home to the amazing steam shower! Again, the view was spectacular from our room. When we came downstairs to breakfast we were pleasantly surprised by Mary and Brian's skill in the kitchen! These two can do it all! The food was delicious. Mary and Brian have dedicated quite a bit of time to perfecting their menu in order to serve a new meal nearly every day! They told a story of one guest who has stayed at the Solglimt over 30 times and never had the same meal twice!!

Mary and Brian are two of the most wonderful people. They helped make our special time with family and close friends one of the best experiences of our lives. Stay at the Solglimt! You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Check out the steam shower in the Lake Superior suite!!
