Duluth's Only Waterfront Bed and Breakfast

We Welcome You to Our Duluth Inn

The sun speaks to you from the shores of Lake Superior — silently, but surely, it calls out to you with countless diamond flashes. It captures you. Comforts you. Quiets you. This is Solglimt — the sun on the water — and no other Duluth bed and breakfast offers a more intimate experience on Lake Superior’s shores. 

Right here in Canal Park, our Duluth Inn brings you to the water’s edge in a way you might only expect to find halfway around the world. Solglimt, our Duluth Minnesota inn, is an intimate escape on a seven-mile strip of sand reaching towards Lake Superior’s clear blue — a place where you restore yourself and each other. 

Relax in your perfectly appointed guest suite, and know the only thing you have to do today is anything you wish. Each morning, enjoy a delicately prepared gourmet meal, and then explore the gardens, the shore, the ships and the city of Duluth. This is Solglimt — we welcome you to the water.

We are located right on Canal Park and offer our guests 120 feet of unspoiled sandy beach for their enjoyment.  Our located offers guests views of ships coming and going from Duluth.  View our webcam to see ships leaving in realtime.

Wow! Unlike any B&B we have stayed at,
you will love it too...

From the time we walked in, the love that Brian and Mary have put into their heavenly B&B was evident – beautiful care to preserve the history of the home, the artwork and decor and its location on Lake Superior were amazing. We were a little sad that the garden was trying to come to life since they had snow only a few weeks ago (it’s an excuse to return when it is in full bloom). I imagine that it makes it even more magical. My wife and I felt like we were in a different world while staying the 3 nights at Solglimt.

Breakfast was equally beautiful and delicious – 3 courses and very filling. Brian was a wonderful breakfast host. Fresh local ingredients. We looked forward to meeting the other couples each morning. Mary was able to provide an earlier breakfast our last morning so that we could get to our boat tour on time.

The view from our suite of the gardens and the Lake was beautiful. There was 2 chairs in the room for watching the sailboats race (Wednesday evenings all summer), oar boats or jet skis. There was many seating areas in the many different public spaces at the Inn. We especially liked the new roof top deck. Gave us nearly a 360 degree view of Lake Superior, the bridge, and the harbor.

We had a wonderful time and are already planning on when we can return. Thank you to Brian and Mary for the great hospitality and all the hours of love and sweat you have poured into the B&B. It certainly shows.
