the sun on the water

Hey, another post related to my wedding. IMAGINE THAT!

Technically, though, this has to do with after the wedding - our honeymoon, to be exact!  We didn't have a lot of time after the wedding to take a big tropical vacation (we had a wedding in the U.P. the following weekend) so we decided, as a lot of Twin Cities newlyweds do, to head 'up north' for a few days.  I was so indescribably happy when Ryan took charge of the honeymoon planning (I was SO OVER decision-making by this point) and he did an amazing job, because we ended up at Solglimt.



Solglimt Bed and Breakfast is a Duluth B&B that is located just over the Duluth lift bridge from Canal Park.  It is run by a lovely and kind couple who definitely knows how to make you feel at home.  And the food - oh my goodness, the food.  Breakfast is served every morning at 9:00, and most days we ate so much we had to go back to bed for a couple of hours to let it settle.  SO.GOOD.



One of the best things we had while we were there was Strawberry Soup.  Incredible.

The rooms are wonderful, too.  They just added on with two modern 'green' rooms, which is where we stayed (the Aerial Bridge Suite, to be exact).  Every room has a fireplace and big picture windows.  We spent most nights sitting by our window, drinking wine, and just watching the water.  Heavenly.


The grounds are full of gorgeous flowers and landscaping, and there are stairs down to the beach.  If Lake Superior ever happened to be warm enough, it would be perfect for swimming.


Our B&B honeymoon was absolutely perfect.  We're going back on our first anniversary (and every anniversary after that!) and I am already so excited.

Wow! I've been meaning to get up to Duluth (never been!) so maybe this would be a great spot for a getaway weekend in the summer! Looks amazing!

This place looks amazing - thanks for sharing ... I want to go! Maybe I should bring Heidi since she somehow hasn't been there yet ;)

Heidi - you definitely should go, both to Duluth and Solglimt! Book early - it fills up really fast, especially in the summer (I think we booked in, like, March for our August trip). You're going to love it!
