The DuPont Mansion B&B is an historic treasure with modern amenities. The tall ceilings, ornate fireplaces and carved woodwork look and feel like the circa 1889 Victorian Mansion that it is. Yet the high speed free WiFi throughout the Mansion, flat screen TVs in all guest rooms and Jacuzzi tubs in every bath (two are double) provide luxury beyond anything imagined over a century ago.

What a find! Historic, elegant yet cozy, inside and out. Nice shared spaces on the ground floor and outdoors as well. Great location in historic neighborhood and next to a park. Breakfast was creative and tasty each morning served with Chris’s great conversation. Just the weekend atmosphere I was looking for. Thank you and will return!

We attend the live horse races at Churchill Downs, a weekend each in May, September and November. Our "home" while in Louisville is the DuPont Mansion. As always our room was extremely comfortable and the home immaculately clean. Christopher the Innkeeper, is always so personable and accommodating, We were blessed with wonderful weather, and were able to enjoy happy hour in the back garden area. We can't wait to return in September and again in November!

It is impossible to overstate how wonderful our stay was at the Dupont Mansion. Our family stayed for Thanksgiving week while my fiance (now husband) and I were married in Kentucky. I am sixty years old and have traveled all over the world since I was a child. The Innkeeper, Christopher, provided the most exceptional customer service I've ever experienced in my entire life. My family actually decided that we couldn't mention a need, because he would instantly meet it. Within one day, we were jokingly calling him "The Magic Elf" and "Aladdin." By the second day, it was not a joke, and we decided those nicknames were completely justified. Just a few examples: my daughter's bridesmaid dress was sleeveless, so he somehow magically found her two shawls in the exact same shade to keep her warm; my son was exhausted and had to stay in bed one day, so Christopher made him breakfast in bed and later brought him lunch; I was squinting in the winter sun one morning at breakfast, so Christopher brought me sunglasses (I didn't ask!); there were chilled champagne and two glasses waiting for us upon return from our wedding, and Christopher had specially decorated the front yard and front door to congratulate us; Christopher gave my friend a book on bourbon; he was exquisitely attentive to our dietary restrictions, even making vegetarian gravy with Southern biscuits one day as part of our multi-course breakfast each morning; Christopher coordinated with Sheila, who also was extraordinary, to get all the travel wrinkles out of my veil and wedding dress . . . on and on and on. Those actually are only a handful of countless examples of his superb care. I could keep writing for PAGES about all he did for us. He also is a gifted chef; all our breakfasts were delicious. He even brought us leftovers on Thanksgiving because we ate our dinner very early! Truly stunning! He used to work in the restaurant industry and has detailed knowledge of local restaurants and entertainment, as well. Christopher was also charming, brilliant, told delightful stories (ask about the ghost ; ), and, along with Sheila, keeps the mansion in impeccable order and cleanliness. There were wine and chocolate all over, as well as coffee, tea, and homemade cookies refreshed daily. He had already decorated the entire place for Christmas and even was decorating other homes on the street. WOW. If I were in the inn keeping/hospitality business, I would hire him to teach customer service to all employees. We were and are still gobsmacked by his kindness, wit, thoughtfulness, and profound level of care. I can think of dozen of hotels that should use him in training their employees. I work very hard and have health challenges, so relaxing during my wedding week was extremely important to me. Christopher made the whole week so perfect that it seems like a dream. He's a gem beyond compare. On another topic altogether, the Warrens did a terrific job of restoring the mansion, and it's exquisite. My daughter's favorite film is "Meet Me in St. Louis," and she repeatedly said she felt as if she were living in the movie. The nearby homes are beautiful, as well. Thank you, Christoper, Sheila, and the Warrens! We will always be grateful to you for such a spectacular and restorative stay during our wedding week! The memories will last a lifetime, and we will treasure them always.

Between Chris the Innkeeper, and Warren's, the owners, they have taken such wonderful care of this property. They have worked so hard to maintain the integrity of this home as a part of the B&B's in this beautiful part of historic Louisville. We "home base" ourselves here when we attend live racing at each meet at Churchill Downs.

We enjoyed our stay and felt quite at home. Delicious breakfasts in the morning, fresh baked treats and wine in the evening, and water and coffee always available. Classical music in the background. Christopher is a delightful and thoughtful innkeeper. All the rooms are lovely, including the Morgan room where we stayed. I highly recommend the Dupont. Pro trip: we paid $225 for the dinner and ghost tour package. We thoroughly enjoyed both. But it turns out the total value of the package is $100 (plus the autographed book by the leader of the ghost walk). We were quite happy with the evening, but might have saved $100 had we booked the tour ourselves.

This is what my husband had to say… My wife, Karen, and I lodged at the DuPont Mansion recently in Louisville Kentucky. During our stay, we met the caretaker, Christopher Porter. He embellished our stay with his apt attention to our requests and interests. He made delicious and healthy breakfasts. His memory is phenomenal. We would recommend this B & B for any visit to the city. And I just wanted to ad, The Inn Keeper, Christopher, was Amazing in making our stay feel like a home away from home, and part of the family. He’s the best ever! The place is very clean, and beautiful. I would come back to visit, just for the stay at the B&B alone.

This is one of the nicest B & B’s we’ve stayed in. We came to Louisville to experience the charm and hospitality that is so talked about in old Louisville and we’re not disappointed. Upon arrival, we were greeted at the beautiful front door (original to the home) by the Innkeeper, Christopher. We were immediately welcomed into the lovely front parlor and given a bit of history of the home as well as the what to expect during our stay at the mansion. The rooms are tastefully appointed and for an added touch of charm there is a player piano playing as you enter the home. Christopher then proceeded to escort us to our designated suites and made sure we were satisfied with our accommodations. We stayed in the DuPont Suite. This is the most spacious of all the rooms complete with a whirlpool tub. The breakfasts were outstanding and also prepared and served by Christopher each morning. There is also complimentary wine placed throughout the mansion to enjoy at your leisure. The outdoor porch at the rear of the home is also nicely furnished to accommodate several guests at a time. The mansion is within walking distance of many local attractions and places to eat. Don’t miss a dinner at Bucks Restaurant, recommended by the owner of the DuPont Mansion, Gail Warren. Gail also arranged for our private tour of the Bourbon Trail with “Travel The Trail” and we couldn’t have been more pleased with our experience with this company as well as with our tour guide, Bob. Christopher made our stay perfect and was attentive to our every need. Overall, a wonderful trip to Old Louisville.. we will definitely be back.

We stayed in the Carnegie room for a weekend. The Inn was very well kept and clean. Comfortable bed and roomy bathroom accommodations. The Inn keeper, Christopher, is awesome. He is super hospitable and knowledgeable about the area. Really went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our time in Louisville. Gave us great restaurant recommendations too. We will definitely come again.

Top notch accommodation. It was a privilege to stay in the beautiful mansion as soak in the history and architecture. The owner did a fantastic job of restoring this gem. This place is neat as a pin. The inn keeper is awesome, very friendly and knowledgeable, I felt like family during my visit. I recommend considering staying here if you in visiting Louisville.
