Historic but very cozy. Super clean and safe. Excellent breakfast. Host on site. Everything worked. Lots to do closeby. Top quality towels and bedding. Good coffee. Parking in front or back. Lovely garden. Internet works and tv gets HGTV.

This B&B is one of the best we've stayed in. The house itself is beautiful and the room we had - the DuPont Suite is exceptional. It has two fireplaces, a huge hot tub, separate toilet and the bedroom is magnificent. The area it's in is quiet and tranquil. The breakfasts - well, absolutely amazing. Wonderful. The Inn Keepers were...

Always enjoy staying here each year. We are usually there 4-5 days for trade show, and staying here makes it seem less like a "work" trip. Such friendly, wonferful folks....its like visiting with friends.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights before Christmas. The home is very lovely and clean and in December is decorated for the holidays in a very traditional and beautiful way.

Thanks for reviewing us. It is our intention to spoil everyone that visits the DuPont Mansion. By the way, our Christmans decorations are usually up from Mid-November to the second week in January. It's a great time to visit.

My husband and I were going to be in Louisville for 5 nights for an event at the Expo center. Luckily for us, the host hotel was full so that set me looking for an alternative. I picked the Dupont Mansion and we could not have been happier. It is a gorgeous building, beautifully decorated inside and quite possibly the...

Thanks for the nice review. "Possibly the best bed and breakfast anywhere"! Wow. Well, we aspire to that anyway. Since your review we have contacted our wi-fi specialist and he will recheck all areas of the house to make sure our guests can get reliable free wi-if signals everywhere.

Ken and Ann are superb hosts! The breakfasts were wonderful and they were extremely helpful with recommendations. We loved our dinner at Buck's which they suggested, just a walk around the corner! The bed was extremely comfortable. We loved the neighborhood of Old Louisville - beautiful area to walk. Very close to downtown.

We so enjoyed the hospitality of the staff of the Dupont Historic Mansion Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in the Edison suite and loved everything about it. This home was clean, beautiful, and we felt very safe. Due to kitchen renovations we had breakfast at their sister B & B across the street, The Inn at the Park. It gave...

Stayed here for one night while in town to see friends. Owner was very gracious and friendly. The mansion is gorgeous and if you like Victorian architecture you'll be very pleased. Despite the history of the house the plumbing and bathrooms are up to modern standards, the rooms comfortably heated, and the bed provided a great night's sleep. Little bowls...

My husband and I had a great time visiting the DuPont Mansion. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was outstanding. The innkeeper was very friendly and willing to assist with any need that we had during our stay. The stocked kitchen on the second floor was a nice added bonus.

The DuPont Mansion B&B is an historic treasure with modern amenities. The tall ceilings, ornate fireplaces and carved woodwork look and feel like the circa 1889 Victorian Mansion that it is. Yet the high speed free WiFi throughout the Mansion, flat screen TVs in all guest rooms and Jacuzzi tubs in every bath (two are double) provide luxury beyond anything imagined over a century ago. ... more   less
