Glad to return on our second visit to Louisville. Great, convenient location in the "Old Louisville Historic District" with free parking and good restaurants within walking distance. Also comparable & across the street is it's sister property the Inn at the Park which we stayed at on our third visit passing thru in the other direction. Warm, friendly, caring Innkeepers.

The DuPont Mansion is beautiful beyond belief...lovingly restored to its late 1800's elegance, exquisitely furnished with wonderful antique furniture, porcelain, silver, crystal chandeliers and art. Herb Warren, one of the owners, greeted us and gave us a very welcoming tour - inviting us to help ourselves to coffee, wine, pastries and snacks. The Innkeeper, Bekah, is a real treasure. She...

We stayed 2 nights in the The Thomas Edison room. Beautifully decorated with a large bathroom with jacuzzi bath. A slight problem with having too much light at night as there is a window above the door which, although has a curtain, let in a lot of light. Breakfast was good but there was no choice. You had what was... More

Thanks for the review and recommendation. I didn't know the hall light would ever be a bother because of the curtain over the window/transom. We will fix that right now by always turning that ceiling hall light off at night. There is sufficient dim lighting in the hall to assure safe passage anytime. More

Stayed for two nights as we visited Louisville en route to Bourbon Country. The mansion was very well kept and Herb, the owner, greeted us and cooked us breakfast both days. The size of the room and the amenities are top-notch. The breakfast was very good, but nothing spectacular as far as B and Bs go. We were one of... More

In Louisville to see "Phantom." Super B&B in a unique location of lovingly restored Victorian homes. Wonderful recommendation for dining - even made the reservation for us - and brought breakfast to us since one is handicapped. Well-stocked kitchenette on same floor.

We stayed 4 nights and absolutely loved our time at the Dupont Mansion. Herb made a range of tasty breakfasts and was a joy to talk with about local lore and the recent passing of Muhammad Ali. We've stayed in a number of Kentucky B&Bs and the Dupont Mansion is one of the best! Enjoy!

This was probably my favorite lodging on our 2 week long trip to Kentucky.The house was built circa 1879. It is a rare decorative Italianate mansion with ornate carved marble fireplaces, hardwood floors, plaster moldings and 14 foot ceiings. 10 foot doors and windows make for a charming old mansion. It is furnished with antiques and period furnishings. Ken and... More

Great place to stay, good value, great breakfast. Would stay there again. The only complaint was the road construction in front of the establishment. The caretakers and owners were very friendly and helpful.

Thanks for the compliments. Sorry about that road construction. Unfortunately it was going on just when you were here. It's over now. We've also had construction next door recently. That too is about over and in the place of an empty parking lot, our next door neighbor is now a $11 million museum addition showcasing regional history by the Filson... More

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. ... more   less
