Copper KIng Mansion inspired us to eventually buy our own bed and breakfast. WE stay here whenever we travel through Butte, Montana. Walking into the mansion, it is truly an artistic treasure, a show piece of how the other half lived so long ago. Inlaid wood floors, lovely tiles, incredible wood carved staircase, and other arts and crafts are most beautiful. Much expense was evident in the features of the mansion.
Our room was comfortable, with a huge closet to put our stuff. We shared a bathroom with several rooms, but it worked out fine. Enjoyed the huge,old fashioned bath tub, and the many spray shower was a hoot. The food was fantastic, and our hostess very friendly and hospitable.
I loved all the collections, as I love history. It is one of a kind treasure. I'm sorry that some don't appreciate it!
