When we travel we always try to stay in a B&B because we like the personal attention you get. The Olcott House lived up to our expectations. The house is located in a residential area of Duluth that was "the place to live" when the industrial barons were building their gracious homes. The Olcott house is one of these homes.... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Olcott House! First of all, the house was amazing. It felt as though I was stepping back in time. It's beautifully decorated and the history that the owners David & Jerry told was fascinating. The food was incredible! I felt extremely welcome and completely at home. I have been to bed and breakfasts... More

We were absolutly blown away not only because of its beauty, but by the attention to detail from the staff. From the wine and cheese in the afternoon, to the defrosting of our wedding cake, to the AMAZING breakfasts, it was more than we... More

I wish more places could provide such an atmosphere, they have put wonderful thought into the decor!!! I will return whenever I am in... More

I really felt pampered at The Olcott House B&B. The ambiance, beautiful rooms, hosts, attention to detail, food and especially, the cozy warm fireplace at 16 below zero, inspired these comments. I would highly recommend a visit to this lovely Georgian mansion located in Duluth, MN. Stephanie

I loved staying at the Olcott House! The Haven suite was gorgeous and comfortable. The porch adjacent to the room was perfect for reading. The owners were very inviting and had great recommendations for various restaurants near the shore of Lake Superior. I highly recommend the Olcott!

Stayed for two nights last week and absolutely loved this place. Owners David and Jerry are extremely nice/helpful and treat you like family. Beautiful home and architecture. Wine/cheese in the evenings and great breakfast in morning. The best B&B experience I've had...by far. Would definitely stay again and recommend this place to anyone traveling to Duluth. Hotels are just as... More
