It is shaping up to be another whirlwind of a summer at the A.G. Thomson House! In 2009 the A.G. Thomson House had it’s best year ever despite the recession, and so far 2010 is shaping up to surpass what was an amazing year! We continue to work diligently to improve and impress. To name just a few…
The most obvious is the recent launch of our new website! This process began some time ago with design ideas and has come to fruition to be what we believe one of the nicest sites around. We have improved the size of the pictures so guests can really see what our rooms look like with no “make-up.” We have added additional pages and kept the navigation easy, but beautiful. One addition we are particularly proud of is our “Plan Your Stay” page. We spent a great deal of time working on putting this page together. It offers guests an in-depth list of things to see and do around Duluth, no matter what the season. We have established sample itineraries for Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter because there is always something to do in Duluth – no matter what the season or the weather!! We know we will continue to improve and tweak the site, but we couldn’t be more proud to offer our guests this great new venue!
Other things keeping us busy this year, besides our wonderful guests that have passed through our doors, are the new Hickory wood floors in the North Shore Retreat and Brule River Retreat. It’s a truly amazing transformation of these two cozy rooms, among their other wonderful amenities.
All of our rooms have received new Flat Screen TV updates, with the most dramatic in our unbelievable Lake Superior Suite! The Lake Superior Suite now has a new 40″ High Definition Flat Screen TV – perfect for watching any of our over 500 DVD’s in our movie library, or that baseball, basketball, football game – or whatever your favorite sport may be!
Another addition to our breakfast is the option to receive a full breakfast delivered to your room – just like room service! This new addition proudly won us the Best In-Room Dining in the Duluth~Superior Magazine poll this Spring! It has proven to be a great amenity for our guests!
The Ryerson Suite received another new update with the addition of an outrageously comfortable King Size Bed, making this our third room to offer a King Size bed as an option – very rare in the Bed and Breakfast world!
And last, but not least in our ongoing efforts to make the A.G. Thomson House your home away from home, we have added a new raised bed garden so we can grow and use fresh herbs in our already tasty breakfast dishes. I’ve already been cutting! And as we do each year, we have added more beautiful flowers and plants to our perennial gardens all around the Inn, two new fountains, and added more potted annuals around the Veranda than ever before.
One thing is for sure, we will never stop improving the A.G. Thomson House! We invite you to visit our site, peruse our photo gallery, and even join us on Facebook where we continually add updates, pictures, and information. And if you are thinking of staying here, book soon! Our advance bookings are way up this year. So pick out that perfect room and join us this summer, fall, winter or spring at the AG Thomson House!
