We have always wanted to experience "living" in a grand manor house and our time at Olcott was a dream come true. Period decor and furnishing throughout make for a warm, quiet, peaceful and inviting environment. We felt like we had stepped back in time. Our goal was to experience the house and other than leaving for dinner we spent... More

We had planned a short trip touring several Bed and Breakfasts but found the best and could not leave! Our hosts, David and Jerry, orig. from California, have impeccable tastes, created an experience unsurpassed, great sense of humor and their warmth radiated throughout the Olcott "mansion". We experienced 2 of their Beautifully decorated suites and toured them all when guests... More

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the Olcott House! David was a warm and attentive host with lots of To Do/To Go suggestions, yet he didn't hover. Delicious breakfast. Clean, comfortable and extremely large suite. Great location. Just perfect!

We had never stayed at a b&b so decided to try one as a get away for our 30th anniversary. We let the owners know when we made the reservation that we were celebrating a special occasion. We were met by david who promptly checked us in. We discovered we would be the only guests for the evening. We didn't... More

So my sister calls me in Miami from Minnesota, and tells me winter is over ! Well I hope so, after all, it is May. She persuades me to fly up and meet her at "The Olcott House" in Duluth. I've been in Duluth before, but never stayed at such a Phenomenal place ! Everything about this B&B is Perfect.... More

The Olcutt House has the kind of charm I didn't know still existed. I was at ease the moment I walked through the front door. David, you have built a beautiful and peaceful place. I will return. Thank you.

I have stayed at Olcott numerous times, and this grand and noble house always enchants me. David and Jerry are so knowledgeable about the area and make great suggestions for places to visit. Their hospitality makes the stay special each time I am there. The beds are so comfortable and the décor so charming. The breakfasts are always delicious and... More

We've stayed at the Olcott House for 3 out of 5 years when running Grandma's Marathon. We've stayed in the Superior sweet the past two visits, but chose the Carriage house this time. I am a tough person to please, as my expectations are HIGH. The Carriage house has a large sitting area, spacious bedroom, kitchen which includes coffee maker,... More

We recently enjoyed our third stay at the Olcott House and are planning our next visit. The historic mansion is spacious and inviting, the suites are beautiful and very comfortable, and David is an exemplary host. We love to explore the Duluth area from the home base of the Olcott. Such luxury and comfort! It is a delight to spend... More
