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

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

We weren't sure if the magic from the first visit was real or just a fabulous memory -- but now we know it's the real thing! We couldn't wait to return and were thrilled to see the Olcott House in all her glory. It truly is a magnificent place. David is charming and we love his breakfasts! This time we... More

This is our return stay at the Olcott House and will stay again on future trips. David is a wonderful and gracious host. We stayed in the Lake Superior Suite - it has a three - season porch and an outdoor deck. Amazing! The house is gorgeous and the sitting rooms are so inviting, it's hard to leave the house.... More

We just love to stop at the Olcott House! From our arrival in the late afternoon with the wine and cheese buffet, to the room, to the space for relaxation in the sitting rooms, to the breakfast in the morning we get to have the luxury that isn't available in most places. David is a terrific host and is always... More

My husband and I spent a beautiful Fall weekend at the Inn, and what an amazing weekend we had! The house is just stunning upon driving up, and when you walk inside it only gets better! We were greeted by David, who gave us a quick tour of the house. He was more than accommodating, gave us suggestions on things... More
