This cheerful retreat in Duluth’s Mansion District has earned many accolades: Trip Advisor’s Travelers’ Choice 2016 named it the top bed-and-breakfast in the country. Chalk it up to the multi-course breakfasts, fireplaces in each room, luxurious beds and Midwest hospitality. Summer is a terrific time to hang in a hammock among the gardens. 2617 E. 3rd St., Duluth; 1-218-724-3464; thomsonhouse.biz
