In Louisville to see "Phantom." Super B&B in a unique location of lovingly restored Victorian homes. Wonderful recommendation for dining - even made the reservation for us - and brought breakfast to us since one is handicapped. Well-stocked kitchenette on same floor.

I remember Paul because he and his wife so enjoyed seeing "Phantom of the Opra" and were super guests. Thanks for mentioning the kitchenette on the second floor. That is for guest use and it is very handy for early or late coffee, tea, water, soft drinks, wine and snacks. Also, since your visit, We've obtained a liquor license and...

Well, I hardly know how to respond to you John, my lovely guest from England. Thank you for all the nice things you said about our inn and the neighborhood.

We stayed 4 nights and absolutely loved our time at the Dupont Mansion. Herb made a range of tasty breakfasts and was a joy to talk with about local lore and the recent passing of Muhammad Ali. We've stayed in a number of Kentucky B&Bs and the Dupont Mansion is one of the best! Enjoy!

Kristina, Thanks for your praise. So glad you could stay 4 nights. There is a lot to see and do around here. My wife says I am a "Three Trick Pony" when it comes to making breakfasts, but you are my witness that I have a fourth up my sleeve. Fortunately for all, we have wonderful full time innkeepers at...

This was probably my favorite lodging on our 2 week long trip to Kentucky.The house was built circa 1879. It is a rare decorative Italianate mansion with ornate carved marble fireplaces, hardwood floors, plaster moldings and 14 foot ceiings. 10 foot doors and windows make for a charming old mansion. It is furnished with antiques and period furnishings. Ken and...

We are flattered to be your favorite lodging during a two week stay in Kentucky. I appreciate the detailed description. Do you know that some people only come for a day or two and think they can take in the area? Two weeks is great. The only thing better is to MOVE HERE. Kentucky is a great place to visit...

Great place to stay, good value, great breakfast. Would stay there again. The only complaint was the road construction in front of the establishment. The caretakers and owners were very friendly and helpful.

Herb W, Owner at Dupont Mansion B&B, responded to this review

Thanks for the compliments. Sorry about that road construction. Unfortunately it was going on just when you were here. It's over now. We've also had construction next door recently. That too is about over and in the place of an empty parking lot, our next door neighbor is now a $11 million museum addition showcasing regional history by the Filson...

My girlfriend and I spent two nights at Dupont Mansion the weekend after the Kentucky Derby and couldn't have been more pleased by the convenience, the comfort, and the hospitality we encountered in the heart of Louisville. The hotel is in a historic, verdant part of Louisville, but is by no means in the heart of the action - be...

John, I appreciate your taking time for a detailed review. NOTE: You were in the heart of our beautiful historic preservation district and yet you were very close to downtown, Fourth Street Live, Churchill Downs, University of Louisville, Speed Art Museum, Filson Historic Society Museum, Conrad Caldwell House Museum and a number of other interesting things and places. Hurry back.

We stayed here for one night. The B&B was very beautiful and the host Herb was very welcoming. The room was large, clean and quiet. The breakfast was very good. My only complaints would be that the WIFI signal was weak and the room we were in the Cleveland had a glass door and the curtain on it did not...

Thank Chilli09
Herb W, Owner at Dupont Mansion B&B, responded to this review

Glad to know of these issues. Now we will always turn that light off at night. We have ordered a stronger wi-fi signal and expect that to be installed within a week. It certainly is helpful to learn of issues like this. We want our guests to be totally satisfied without a single issue whenever possible.

We stayed at the Dupont Mansion for two nights recently while we began the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. We arrived very late and Sue was wonderfully understanding and arranged for our late check in. The room was of a comfortable size and appointed well-enough. The bathroom was small but all that you need. Breakfasts were lovely and service was very sweet....

Thanks for the review, Jennifer. After your visit I complained to th Utility Company, pointing out that the noise ordinance prohibited noisey construction prior to 7;00 am. That helped, and now there is no working on Saturday at all. I believe the Saturday construction was on the new building next door. That is FINISHED. We now have a beautiful $12...

Thank you, Ann and Ken for being such wonderful innkeepers & hosts. The breakfast was superb and the rooms were wonderful. The readily available glass of wine made us feel like special guests. When we are in Louisville again, we know where our first choice to stay will be! Thank you, again.
