8 Amazing Reasons to Elope in Minnesota at Our Duluth Bed and Breakfast

Planning a wedding can be stressful and overly costly, for some, this takes the beauty out of what’s really important about this special day. For those who prefer to celebrate each other on a more intimate level, they can do that when they choose to elope in Minnesota at our Duluth Bed and Breakfast.

Here are details on our Elopement Package and 8 reasons why you should plan to elope in Minnesota at the AG Thomson House:


  1. Eloping here at our Duluth Bed and Breakfast includes at least two nights in one of our most romantic rooms, the Lake Superior Suite. A plush king bed, a jetted two-person whirlpool tub, stone fireplace and private deck combine to make the perfect space. It’s a lovely way to kick off your life together as a married couple.
  2. When you choose our Elopement Package you’ll have access to an experienced wedding officiant and two witnesses (if you and your partner have come alone.) If you do have your parents, siblings or best friends present we cap the guest count at six people for the most intimate of ceremonies.
  3. You’ll have access for up to an hour for wedding photos either on our grounds or in the Inn. Beautiful outdoor photo ops are around every corner from the white gazebo, flower gardens and lush green lawns. Inside, the elegant decor of the Inn serves as a classic backdrop for timeless pictures. We have a preferred list of photographers if you need a recommendation.
  4. An important part of this day is the toast! We’ll provide the happy couple with a crisp bottle of bubbly (or a non-alcoholic version.) Plus two AG Thomson House signature champagne flutes as a forever keepsake.
  5. Another pertinent detail when you elope in Minnesota at our Inn is the cake. Our Elopement Package also includes a pretty two-person wedding cake. One more thing you won’t need to worry about finding from around town.
  6. After your ceremony, a fancy dinner to celebrate will be in order. We recommend The Boat Club directly on Lake Superior and less than 10 minutes from our front steps. Included in our package is a $50 gift card for the fine-dining establishment. Put that towards a high-end bottle of wine or one of the delectable surf and turf entrees.
  7. Breakfast in bed sounds like the most decadent way to spend the first morning together after your elopement. Let us deliver it straight to your door! (Add on mimosas to make the morning even more special.) Our menu is ever-changing with seasonal produce and home baked goods.
  8. Our location in the picturesque Congdon Mansion district of Duluth and only minutes from Lake Superior. This offers newlyweds many nearby exciting options for romantic dining out, shopping and sight-seeing. After you elope in Minnesota at our Bed and Breakfast, prolong your stay and spend your honeymoon exploring Duluth.
