“Wonderful weekend getaway”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

This was a wonderful weekend getaway for us. Tim and Angie were incredibly hospitable, and were very accommodating when I requested a few special arrangements for a surprise birthday weekend getaway. They warmly greeted us as soon as we got out of the car, and gave a quick tour and history of the beautiful inn they manage. The food was phenomenal. Will definitely come again!

The A. G. Thomson house is the penultimate Bed & Breakfast experience. My wife and I were absolutely ecstatic with the beautiful room, the heavenly food, and the wonderful hospitality offered by the owners: Tim and Angie. Highest recommendation possible!!!

After originally planning to stay at a different Duluth B & B, we were swayed by the excellent reviews on this website. We were not disappointed! From the time we booked, Tim and Angie communicated all the details very clearly. Tim met us in the parking lot, showed us around the historical home and made sure we were right at home. The Salyards room was quaint and cozy, with a great jacuzzi tub looking in to the room. Fluffy robes and bath products were an added plus. We enjoyed the delicious gourmet breakfasts (delivered to your room or eaten in the dining room), watched a couple of current DVDs (from hundreds of choices!), and were able to snack on chocolate chip cookies and beverages--including wine! The grounds were awesome and we soaked in some autumn sun sitting on Adirondack chairs behind the house. As native Duluthians, we loved the quiet neighborhood and the vast collection of historical books in the living room--including those on notable homes in the area. One of the best parts of our stay was the delicious gourmet breakfasts made by Angie (delivered to your room or eaten in the dining room) that made us feel like royalty! From the mixed fruit yogurt parfait
to the raspberry white chocolate scones and chocolate banana bread to the
herb and cheese baked omelet and fresh juice--everything was delicious! The innkeepers are truly warm and hospitable people. We will 100% be returning in the future!

This was our first stay at a B &B--using a Christmas gift certificate given to us by our children for the get away. We expected wonderful accommodations, great service and delicious food, all in a historic setting, but that was only the tip of the iceberg! What really made the visit special was the hospitality of our hosts, Tim & Angie Allen. The inn was full both days we were there, but the Allen's would drop whatever they were doing to answer questions or just visit. We chose to have our breakfasts in the dining room and heard similar, positive comments from those with whom we shared the meal.
We'll probably enjoy some other B &B's in the future, but--fair warning to others: we think we visited the best one first!

"Superior" in all respects the A. G. Thomson House is a nostalgic trip back in time, but also perfection in service, accommodations, food, and friendliness. A truly lovely experience for us and our friends who lead us to this B and B as part of our "Autumn Leaves Tour of Duluth and the North Shore". Both Tim and Angie were ready to make your stay seem like we were just coming home to family. We were treated to cookies and coffee upon arriving and also a tour of the property, and our very special room with all the comforts of home and more! Angie is a gourmet chef and we enjoyed a truly delicious and filling breakfast. Tim and Angie have created a splendid retreat that made a house into a warm and inviting home. We just loved being there with old friends and making Tim and Angie our newest of friends. We won't go to Duluth again without a stay at the A. G. Thomson House.

Angie and Tim run a first class B & B complete with a breakfast that will fill you up for most of the day. Angie made a cantaloupe peach cold soup that was killer and a pumpkin French toast that was top notch. The home is real cozy and cookies and coffee can be had at any time. Tim was very personable when we arrived and gave us a tour around the home. Together they mix conversation and availability with imposing themselves. They are very comfortable folks and seem to enjoy what they are doing. This is the best b & b that we have stayed at in Duluth and the others were quite good as well which goes to show you how well these folks are!

Friends, you need to experience this! Tim and Angie are like staying with your favorite aunt and uncle....only they live in a beautiful, historic mansion, are master chefs, and don't care how late you stay out or what you do in the room. ;-) This was the first B&B for my husband and I so we didn't know what to expect...I am quite sure they have ruined us for any other B&B. The rooms are pricey but the hotels in the area were pretty pricey at the same time so we decided to try something difference. The experience is so much more than at any hotel. Tim and Angie really make you feel at home. The house is so beautiful and interesting. We ate in the dining room both mornings because we wanted to enjoy the fellowship with other visitors, but you can have it delivered to your room too. The food was AMAZING! Tim talked to us a bit about what they went through to get the place up and running and it is fascinating. We stayed in the Mayor's Chamber and loved our room, except the tight squeeze around the table. But we were able to see some of the other rooms as well and they are all really cool. All the above being said, if you are rushing through the area and plan on doing tons of things, this may not be the place to go. But if your days aren't packed and you have time to relax, I truly recommend this place. I really hope my review has done the AG Thomson House justice because I was thoroughly impressed.
