Enjoyed two nights at this lovely mansion in the Alcott room which was tastefully appointed and quite immaculate. Bathrooms were quite up to date with towels and linens being very fresh and new. Breakfasts were simply delicious. Thank you again Maria.

We stayed 3 nights in the Dupont Room. The furnishings were elegant but comfortable. Our room was on the second floor facing the street but it was very quiet. The bathroom was huge with a jacuzzi and a fireplace. There is wine in each room and snacks and beverages in a kitchen for guests. Breakfasts were bountiful. Guests have a... More

I stayed at the DuPont Mansion recently during a visit to Louisville. It was beautiful. The rooms were great, the history of the mansion was wonderful. There were snacks, and wine. The rooms were cozy and there was a lovely patio out back (it was a bit too hot to sit out there). Breakfast was wonderful. We spent our second... More

We stayed this past weekend. The owners have really spent the money and time to present the Architecture, Time Period and Wealth of the Duponts'. For the money, a big jacuzzi and lots of space made this place money well spent. Mimi; The Keeper, her hospitality and cooking is excellent. Breakfast was superb, detailed, special and a joy to wake... More

Rich in history. The inn keeper, Helen, was very knowledgeable and helped us find the things we needed. For people who have never stayed in a B&B before this was a great experience. Breakfast was delicious. Started with juice and fresh fruit. Then we had an egg sausage casserole. We walked around the area that night and felt perfectly comfortable.... More

This is a beautiful B&B. Great bedrooms, beautiful living rooms, snacks. I chose the establishment because it had breakfast. However, the owners have 2 places and sometimes serve breakfast at one place only. This happened to me on my visit. The host told me that I would be hearing from someone about where breakfast would be located. And if I... More

Of course we wanted this guest to come to breakfast and we thought that we fully communicated, but clearly we did not. We are very sorry for the mixup. We have now instituted a new policy, in those infrequent cases where a guest is invited to have breakfast at our sister inn, We take the guest to the front porch... More

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

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
