“BEST gem in Butte, loved the tour and breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

This IS the place to stay in Butte. Very elegant full breakfast served in beautiful main dinning room. Feels like you live in Downton Abbey for a day! So many gems to explore. The owners are just as charming and interesting as the mansion. Worth taking the tour as well.

Room Tip: All rooms are very charming, we stayed in the master bedroom.

The amazing craftmanship, artistry, and history of this house should not be missed. The owners are lovely too. But I would have preferred to take the tour without staying the night. It smelled ooooooold and musty, and there were no showers.

a beautiful old mansion. I so wish we stayed here or did the tour. all we had was a quick visit unfortunately. The little blond girl that let us in was super sweet. The entryway and what we could see was really beautiful, and from what she said the rooms are not that expensive. Next time we are in the area we will definitely stay here!

The family who has been part of this home for 63 years has a longer history with this beautiful mansion than the original builder W.A. Clark had! The love they have for this place is evident in talking to Erin, Pat and John. The rates are super reasonable, and the breakfasts were excellent. We stayed two nights.

We got to do the main house tour, but also got to see structurally how the home was built from the ground up. It was one of the first homes in the US to have electricity, and it still had the original light switches.

This was our first stay ever at a Bed and Breakfast, and we loved it. We had the family room for my husband, oldest son and I. It was very quiet, we were surprised to learn there where 4 other rooms filled the next morning at breakfast.

Don't expect your three prong hair dryer to work. My curling iron didn't fit in the outlets either with the wider prong on one end, but it wasn't a big deal. That was the only bit of extra planning we could have done. (They do have an extension cord, but I didn't need my curling iron that badly!) :)

Thank you for a visit we'll never forget!

This bed and breakfast is a unique experience. It is a historic building in an historic town. Do not expect any modern amenities like a fridge, television or blow dryer, just step back in time and enjoy what was probably high-class living for that era. The Clark family history is interesting and the details in structure and furnishings should not be overlooked. The stained glass windows, the hand carved fireplaces, even the door hinges & knobs are a work of art. Some stories say the mansion is haunted. Could it just be the old radiators steaming up? Or could it be those dolls on the 3rd floor take to dancing in the adjoining ballroom at night?
The host/staff is friendly and accommodating. The meal is adequate. The place is very clean. The off-season rates seem a little high for the rooms that have to share a bathroom down a hallway. I would recommend warm pajamas, good cognac, and a good book.

Room Tip: Master Suite is largest with southern exposure. Family suite is the only room with 2 beds. The oth...

Beautiful setting with a lot of history, the place is wonderful and the hosts were great. I would recommend it to everyone. Reasonably priced, clean, comfortable step back in time. The bedrooms each have a unique feel. Three rooms share a bath and a couple rooms have their own toilets and tubs. There are sinks in each room. We came with several friends for a wedding and enjoyed the house . Check out the "car wash" shower in the upstairs bath. A trip!! Breakfast was nice not super fancy but good basic comfort food.

Room Tip: If you want a private bath book one of the two big rooms.+

The Copper King Mansion B&B was simply amazing! We stayed here for a night as we were passing through Butte. The pictures and description on the website does not do this B & B justice. The rooms were a step back in time, very clean and comfortable. You go here for an 'experience', not expecting a 5 star accommodation. The owners have done a wonderful job of preserving this historical landmark. After a very comfortable nights sleep, we were served a hot breakfast of waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, tea, coffee or juice. We were treated to a free tour of the property as part of our accommodation. The tour guide did a fantastic job I only wish I could remember her name so she could get proper credit. Our host for the night was John who was a very kind man with some great stories. Upon arrival we were checked in and he immediately assisted us with making our dinner arrangements in town. We will definitely go back not only to stay at the Copper King but to check out more of Butte's rich history, which I had known nothing about prior to our visit.
