This summer is bound to be a little bit different in terms of travel in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Odds are, we’ll still need to practice some sort of social distancing for a while, and many of us have been economically impacted in various ways over the past several months. Places like our Duluth Bed and Breakfast, however, make perfect alternatives for travel as we recover from this pandemic. We offer a much safer lodging experience overall when compared to larger hotel chains and properties.
If you look at current travel studies, it appears that quiet getaways that are relatively close to home are highly preferred over destinations that are further away and/or only reached via airplane. Our Bed and Breakfast, located on the North Shore of Lake Superior, sits poised as an ideal getaway for the entire Midwest. What’s better, is that social distancing doesn’t have to get in the way of your travels to Duluth. Social distancing is a natural part of life here in Duluth, where the sensational outdoors is our most common playground.
The A.G. Thomson House Bed and Breakfast is a small property, and we offer an exclusive experience in Duluth that you just can’t find anywhere else. Moreover, we’ve just earned the designation of being a AAA ‘Best of Housekeeping’ property for 2020. We’re honored to receive this award now, as it helps assure our guests that we’re doing everything we can to keep them safe now and into the future. Come see the difference for yourself this summer, and book a room at our Duluth Bed and Breakfast today!
Social Distancing at our Duluth Bed and Breakfast
When it comes to planning unforgettable vacations that will stay vivid in our memories for years to come, what are the important things to consider? Obviously, the destination matters. Duluth is, more than anything else, certainly unforgettable. The sparkling blue waters of Lake Superior, the rugged charm of downtown Duluth, the beautiful natural surroundings, and the ample opportunities to get out and enjoy it; these things are all part of what makes Duluth such a fabulous getaway destination.
But what about where you stay? How many times can you say your lodging has been just as unforgettable as the place? We’d venture a guess that it’s not too often that you can remember every detail of your accommodations. Most larger properties and traditional hotel chains weren’t designed to be anything more than a comfortable place to land. There’s nothing wrong with that, but what if you found a place that strives to be something else entirely? That’s exactly what we hope for at our Duluth Bed and Breakfast; for it to become an integral part of your memories of Duluth, and a place whose magic you can recall in an instant.
Duluth is a pretty great place to stay and play. It’s an exciting 4-season destination, and there’s a big range of things to do here all year-round. This is especially true when it comes to things you can do while still maintaining social distancing. From hiking and biking to boating and enjoying Duluth’s busy harbor, there’s truly something for everyone here. Our blog is your best resource when it comes to travel planning for your next trip to Duluth. And, when that trip to Duluth does happen, our luxury Bed and Breakfast will be at the heart of it all.
We offer you more than just a place to stay; we’re a respite away from the chaos of today’s modern world, and a place where you can rest, recover, and enjoy a little r&r after these many months of isolation at home. We offer 7 beautifully decorated guest rooms, each with their own unique sense of character and charms.
In the morning, wake up to the mouthwatering aromas of breakfast being made for you in our kitchen. Breakfast is truly one of our favorite parts of the day. Though we’ll miss serving you in our dining room and enjoying this part of the day with you, we’re still happy to provide you a healthy and satisfying start to your day in your room. We use locally sourced and organic ingredients whenever possible, and we’re always happy to do our best to meet dietary needs when possible, including making vegan and vegetarian dishes. Please reach out to us in advance for any requests, and we’ll let you know how we can best accommodate you.
AAA Best of Housekeeping Award Means a Safer Way to Stay
We’ve always prided ourselves on the guest experience here at the A.G. Thomson House Bed and Breakfast in Duluth. And, though we could spend all day talking about the amazing things we offer guests that choose to stay with us, we’d also like to take some time to focus on a recent award we received.
We were recently notified by AAA that we were awarded their “Best of Housekeeping” honor for 2020, which is awarded to properties that surpass the expectations of “even [the] pickiest travelers, AAA hotel inspectors.” It means that our Duluth Bed and Breakfast earned the highest possible housekeeping scores during our most recent inspection, and it also means you can rest comfortably knowing we’re keeping you as safe as possible.
Above all else, one of the most important reasons to stay at our Duluth Bed and Breakfast is the relative safety you’ll enjoy at our small boutique property. Choosing to stay at a smaller property like ours means you won’t find large crowds here, and there will be plenty of opportunities for adequate social distancing inside and out. This, combined with our strenuous cleaning and sanitation protocols, combine to offer you the safest travel experience possible.
