“Best of the Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

.The A.G. Thomson House is hands down the best B&B we've eve stayed at! Tim and Angie are wonderful hosts and make you feel at home in their home. The rooms are charming with all the comforts. And the breakfasts are amazing!
The inn is located near downtown with easy access to attractions and dining.
We stayed during the holidays and the inn was decked out. We are already planning to return in the summer and enjoy this wonderful B&B again! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The Lake Superior Suite is very private

Great location! Perfect place to enjoy some great biking and relax in the jacuzzi afterwards. The breakfasts were delicious and bountiful! The grounds/landscape was beautiful. Tim and Angie make you feel like they have known you forever! If you are looking for a quiet B&B in a great location --- this is the place to stay!

We had the most lovely visit at this peaceful and elegant bed and breakfast during the second week of October. It was close to many Duluth eateries either within walking distance or a short car ride. In addition, to the beautiful grounds of the Inn, Duluth itself is full of lovely surprises such as hiking, museums, shopping and eating and close enough to many state parks that are a joy to hike.

Our hosts were very gracious and made us feel welcome immediately upon our arrival. The hewitte suite of our stay was amazing. With many of the comforts of home that make a trip away even more satisfying. Overall, our vacation together, after many years without was rejuvenating and rewarding. We would definitely return!

Picking a honeymoon place was important for both my husband to be and myself. We searched a variety of places, and then choose the A.G. Thomson House. We saw pictures online, and both decided that it looked like the place we wanted to go.

It is hard to describe in words how much we enjoyed our experience at the A.G. Thomson House. From the minute we got there, we felt welcomed. The gardens were beautiful, the food was delicious, and the staff were helpful and friendly.

My husband and I have talked about this place many times and how much we enjoyed our time there; we can't wait to go back and visit. I recommend this place for everyone!

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing. You wouldn't be disappointed with any room!

For their 44th wedding anniversary gift, we purchased a night at AG Thomson House along with a concert in Duluth. They were so impressed by the exceptional accommodations that they commented that they would love to buy the place and live there. They really love their home, so that was very telling. Their children have agreed that this should be a yearly gift to them as they really enjoyed themselves.

This was our first experience at a bed & breakfast and I don't know how we will be able to top our stay at A.G. Thompson House! Angie and Tim met us the minute we arrived and immediatly we knew we had chosen the perfect spot for our anniversary. They are both so warm, welcoming and easy going - you can just see how much they love what they do. We stayed in the Brule River Retreat and felt so comfortable and pampered. We plan on returning again and again to stay in every suite if possible! Also, there is no way you will ever be able to get a breakfast like Angie and Tim serve - blueberry scones with lemon curd, wild rice quiche, seasoned potatoes, pumpkin french toast, homemade cookies and muffins and that was just for two days - it just goes on and on!! We will most definitely tell all our family and friends about A.G. Thomson House and recommend they make their reservations soon to enjoy themselves as much as we did. Thank you, Angie and Tim, for the most lovey of weekends.
