We stay at a lot of B&B's and this one of the best. The restoration is authentic and it is not over decorated with clutter like you find in some B&Bs. The tasteful Decour allows for a restful and elegant experience. There are plenty of cozy places to relax and enjoy the surroundings all of them nearby complimentary wine, cookies... More

We stayed at the DuPont Mansion for 2 nights while attending a conference at the Filson Historical Society. For those that like luxury, history and good food, this is the place to stay. It would make an excellent place to stay for a special getaway.

My husband and I stayed at the DuPont Mansion for 3 nights in January. The owners, Herb and Gayle, also own a B&B across the street and we were married there! Our guests stayed in both mansions and we were all spoiled by their lovely staff! The food and surroundings were exceptional. My husband and I will forever treasure memories... More

My husband and I spent a cozy winter night and enjoyed the ambiance, service and hospitality. The innkeepers were accommodating,very personable but not invasive. The beautiful mansion was comfortable with all the modern conveniences. I think it would be a great place to stay in warmer seasons to enjoy the walk to Central Park and other nice downtown spots and... More

Our stay was exceptional! We stayed for four nights and loved them all. We met Ann and Ken, warm and perfectly marvelous innkeepers, who helped us navigate the city with dining options, activities, and walking tours. Each morning they served a delicious breakfast and were kind enough to ensure ours was salt free. They helped make our stay a true... More

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

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
