Call me old-fashioned, but I was pretty shocked when the innkeeper, who is not the owner, came and sat down with us in the parlor, where we were hoping to relax and have some much-desired alone-time, only to regale us with stories about herself! There was nothing for it; we had to listen, and we then just finally excused ourselves... More

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

We are so sorry to learn of this guest's experience with one of our staff. This guest is reasonable in her expectations. Our training emphasizes that the B&B stay is supposed to be all about the GUEST'S positive experience . Although not an excuse, this incident with a temporary innkeeper occurred after our Innkeeper of 6 years resigned due to... More

January 5, 2015 We had the pleasure of staying at the DuPont Mansion B&B for three nights to a attend a wedding. This was our first time there and we were in awe of the architecture, beauty and history of the mansion. The owners Gayle and Herb along with their friendly and gracious staff are to be commended for their... More

We decided to stay overnight at the DuPont Mansion the Friday after Thanksgiving. We arrived earlier than expected and were very pleased that we were allowed access to our room. Ken helped us with our luggage and was a very gracious host. The mansion itself is beautiful. It is listed on the Louisville "Holiday Home" tour and was decorated beautifully.... More

This B&B is truly lovely. The rooms are immaculate, the Christmas decorations are beautiful, and the breakfast is delicious. I am so glad we decided to book here. We utilized Uber and took a $6 ride to a restaurant last night. This place is truly marvelous. The wine decanters, snack room, coffee, and homemade cookies are extra perks that make... More

From start to finish, my two night stay at the Dupont Mansion B&B was a peaceful respite from an otherwise very busy schedule of activities while coordinating a conference in Louisville. As a fellow Kentucky B&B owner, it was a pleasure to be pampered. And although my schedule permitted little time to fully explore the Old Louisville area, I thoroughly... More

We love staying in downtown Louisville when visiting relatives in town. Growing up In Louisville and attending U of L this is just the best location in town, convenient to everything especially the great restaurants in downtown. This was our second stay here and even better than the first. The rooms are very comfortable, quiet and equipped nicely. The breakfast... More

The DuPont mansion is a beautiful place. We stayed in the DuPont room and were absolutely blown away. Genny was a wonderful host who made us a fantastic breakfast. She wouldn't let us leave until she gave us a hug goodbye. Our only regret is that we could only stay one night.

We stayed in the Carnegie room which was beautiful! my only complaint was the bathroom door didn't close.. so you have to be comfortable with that! Otherwise a perfect stay, wonderful breakfast, lots of wine, burbon, snacks... More

Stayed for one night in the Cleveland room on the first leg of a tour of the Bourbon trail. Could not have asked for a better B&B. The rooms, common and private, are gorgeously decorated and immaculately kept. The hospitality from Genny, the innkeeper, was warm and welcoming- from the afternoon cookies to the delicious breakfast. The neighborhood is beautiful... More

We stayed there last night in the Carnegie room upstairs. Nice room with a two person jetted tub. The breakfast was excellent. They keep the fridge stocked with soft drinks bottled water and wine. The Italian restaurant one block away, Amici, had and excellent pasta dish with a very small anchovies and sardines..trust me.. This was not fishy at all.... More
