  • Introduction

    Welcome to your special day at Duluth, Minnesota's elegant A.G. Thomson House Bed and Breakfast --  Trip Advisor's #1 Bed and Breakfast in the United States - 2012 Travelers' Choice Award Winner!  Named a "Best of the Midwest" by Midwest Living Magazine and voted a Top 15 U.S. bed and breakfast inn for Best Breakfast in the Great Plains, Best in the Midwest, Most Privacy, and Best Weekend Escape.

    Nestled on over an acre of park-like grounds in  Duluth's historic mansion district, the A.G. Thomson House is a graceful 1909 Dutch Colonial designed by a prominent architect of the era. Set on a quiet dead-end street, the bed and breakfast inn is just seven blocks from Lake Superior and Duluth's scenic Lakewalk, yet less than three miles from downtown and the Canal Park entertainment district. The premier location also is only a few blocks from the newest segment of the Superior Hiking Trail, and offers a convenient base for exploring some of Minnesota's most beautiful state parks and other attractions along the spectacular North Shore Scenic Drive.

    Our Inn offers guests the choice of seven beautiful, unique, and classic guest rooms. The Main House presents you with the choice of four incredibly beautiful rooms while our Carriage House holds three beautiful rooms; one of which is our finest Lake Superior Suite.

  • Breakfast

    Morning in Duluth is a glorious time of day! At the A.G. Thomson, breakfast is the "icing on the cake" of a beautiful beginning. We offer a sumptuous homemade, multi-course breakfast for you to savor beginning at 9 am served in our inviting, sun-drenched dining room, or delivered to the privacy of your room. We will serve our special blend of locally roasted, fair trade Alakef Coffee uniquely designed just for the A.G. Thomson House. You will also enjoy an assortment of fine teas, hot chocolate, and apple cider. Coffee and hot water will be available in the dining room by 7 am.

    It's your vacation - so at the A.G. Thomson House you are always welcome to sleep in if you choose. Our multi-course breakfast is prepared and served individually in our dining room, so we ask that guests who plan to dine join us by 9 am. If you choose the privacy of breakfast in your room, you can let us know, and will deliver as close to 9 am as possible!

    We are pleased and challenged to accommodate special dietary needs whenever possible. If you have a special request or need, please let us know in advance of your arrival so we can offer our very best to you. On weekdays, we are happy to prepare an earlier continental breakfast for business travelers or others who may need to depart early.

  • Amenities and Service

    Our guest rooms will beckon with warm, inviting, and comfortable details sure to please. Each of our lovely rooms offer a private bath with shower, A/C, fireplace, LCD HDTV/DVD, CD player/radio and free high speed wireless internet access. Six of our seven rooms have a double whirlpool tub to help you relax and unwind. Several invite you in with incredible views of the sun rising or setting over our "big" lake.

    Each unique room will captivate and rejuvenate your spirit whether you awake after a restful sleep on Egyptian cotton sheets and fine bedding, sip complimentary evening wine, or savor our special blend of morning coffee while nestled in your signature A.G. Thomson House luxury robes. Other inspired details such as thick, luxurious towels, or fine chocolate truffles awaiting your arrival, will refresh and inspire your soul.
