“Dream getaway”
Reviewed January 8, 2009

The bed and breakfast was excellent and we have never experienced such incredible time. It was so lovely that I proposed to my girlfriend there. We look forward to staying here in the future. I have recommended many of my friends to stay at the A.G. Thomson house if they want to experience an incredible time like we did!

Stayed December 2008

My husband and I (along with 3 other couples) just returned from a 2 night stay at the A.G. Thomson House in Duluth. We absolutely LOVED this place. Tom & Angie were such gracious hosts. The breakfasts were amazing (warm muffins, scones, fresh fruit, stuffed french toasts, wild rice quiche) and the house was so cozy. Don't plan too many activities because you won't want to leave your room! They serve complimentary wine in the common areas each evening. We went skiing at Spirit Mountain then came back and played games, had drinks by the fire place. The rooms are gorgeous with 2 person whirl-pool tubs and fireplaces. We will absolutely be back to visit them again. Check them out...you won't be disappointed!

WOW, What a great place ! Tim and Angie were awesome and very attention to detail. We were greeted by both of them with smiles. Walking into the AG Thomson home was just what we needed. The holiday decorations were very nice and everything was just what we needed to relax. It was very quiet and serene. I had forgotten a package when we left and Tim and Angie had it in the mail...next day delivery to us within 3 hours of us leaving. This northern smoked fish I for got was on my door step the next day and it tasted ohhhhhh so good over the holidays. The breakfast was hot, fresh and very very tasty...sharing recipes, not a problem here, we got Angies scone recipe and made it for Christmas morning at our home, and it was just like having the AG Thomson House right in our own home. Thanks for a wonderful time!

This was the perfect getaway for us! Tim and Angie were wonderful and the breakfast was amazing! The room we stayed in had a great little fireplace and our very own. We decided not to leave the house a lot so Tim and Angie had a great choice of menue's for us to chose from. Our weekend was so fantastic that we even got engaged! We plan on returning for our anniversary!

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at the A. G. Thomson House Historic Bed & Breakfast Inn! The house itself is beautiful and the decorating is lovely. We were there during the holidays and it was all decked out for Christmas...5 trees in the public areas. The public rooms were so welcoming...big comfy sofas and chairs and a gas fireplace in the living room. We also had a fireplace and jetted tub in our room. The breakfasts were amazing! We were there for 3 nights, and every morning we started with some type of fresh fruit, then a sweet (muffin, scone, coffee cake), then an eggbake with breakfast potatoes, or stuffed french toast. Never the same thing twice. It was so much food we usually skipped lunch. :) Tim and Angie are so warm and friendly. They gave us great tips for dining out and even made the reservations for us. We highly recommend A. G. Thomson House to anyone looking for a romantic getaway. We will definitely be back!

We just returned from an amazing weekend stay at the A.G. Thomson House in Duluth. My boyfriend and I made a last minute decision to drive north for the Holiday weekend and avoid the Black Friday madness. We hopped in the car and I called the B&B. I spoke with Angie and had the reservation booked within minutes.

When we arrived Tim met us at our car and helped us into the house and on to our room. We stayed in the Salyards Suite and it couldn't have been more perfect. We had amazing views of Lake Superior and a hot tub for two right in the room.

The next morning we had a wonderful breakfast: fresh fruit and yogurt, pumpkin muffin, cheesy egg bake and potatoes. They were so attentive our coffee was never cold (nor empty)! The next morning we had the most amazing cranberry and white chocolate scone (I even got the recipe!), stuffed french toast, and hash browns.

Tim & Angie gave us wonderful dining recommendations as well. Be sure to check out the brewery: Fitgers and have their Wild Rice Burger... yum! We also had lunch at Amazing Grace in Canal Park. Wonderful people watching and amazingly fresh sandwiches. New Scenic Cafe was the highlight of our dining weekend... I recommend anything on the menu.

We had such a fabulous stay, we're already planning our next getaway! Thank you Tim & Angie for making our stay so enjoyable. You'll be seeing us soon.

My boyfriend and I recently had a getaway to Duluth and the Thomson House B&B. It was truly unforgettable.

The common rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. Our room had a spectacular view of Lake Superior. The whirlpool tub and fireplace made it really relaxing and VERY romantic.

And oh, the breakfasts were delicious.

Tim & Angie are great hosts--their hospitality is second to none! We ca't wait to stay again .
