I really can't add anything more to the previous reviews which praised this wonderful B&B. They pretty much covered all the bases. My husband and I stayed there with another couple, and we all felt we might end up part of a British murder mystery a la Hercule Poirot since the staircase and the placement of the rooms around the...

Unfortunately, I cannot even comment on the nature of the architecture or charm of the Cotton House because I was never given the chance to stay. I made a reservation with my boyfriend, complete with valid credit card information and a note implying that we planned to use gift certificates (since the website boasted a gift certificate deal that included...

We are unaware of any Gift Certificate problem of this type. This sounds like a program conducted by Crowd Cut which offered a free night. We always make a concerted effort to accomodate all of our guests. We are not sure why this guest did not follow through, as we would have been able to complete a reservation for them. More

My wife and I stayed for a weekend. Check-in is at 3:00 or 4:00; I'm not sure what happens if you need to arrive at a different time. The house is on a quiet street in an older, restored part of Duluth shared by a few other B&B. I felt very safe walking in the neighborhood - both mornings I... More

This was my first time staying in a bed and breakfast and I wasn't sure what to expect but the pictures online do not give justice to the beauty inside the Cotton Mansion! I loved hearing about the history of the house from the owners and would definetly recommend this place to anyone wanting to getaway! I went for the... More

After 30 years of trying to convince my husband to try a true Bed and Breakfast, he finally chose the Cotton Mansion as our first experience. Situated in an area of Duluth full of beautiful character homes, we found it to be a very peaceful location. The home, full of history and beautiful architecture, was everything I imagined a Bed...

My wife and I loved the look, feel and overall ambiance of the Cotton Mansion from the moment we pulled up under the early 1900's era car port. The cream colored brick of the mansion seemed to welcome us as old friends. Once inside, the soft classical music playing throughout was not only calming but, beckoned us to relax and... More

If you enjoy learning about history in a 100+ year old building that is magnificient, this is your place. The owners live in the building and set just the right tone. they are available if you need them but invisible when you don't. Two nice breakfasts and a very comfortable bed made even a rainy weekend in Duluth memorable. There... More

We stayed in the Bell Cotton Suite at the Cotton Mansion. The room was very large and comfortable. No need to get into the details here, you can see pictures on their website. The building itself was spectacular and amazing. It is very close to downtown Duluth but on the North side of town so it is easy to take... More

I purchased the same crowd cut offer that the previous reviewers mentioned. While the weekends were booked, I booked a Sunday and Monday night without difficulty. We stayed in the large terrace suite. We had views of the lake and a wonderful large room. We were impressed with luxury and peaceful atmosphere. We rarely heard any noise from other guests....

Cotton Mansion registered with CrowdCut to offer a 2-night stay deal, including weekends. I purchased this as a gift and attempted to book any Friday and Saturday night. I was then told that all weekends were booked for the deal and I would have to choose weeknights. Essentially, the deal was mis-represented and in retrospect was something of a "bait... More

The Crowd Cut promotion had specific reservation deadlines. Those that missed these deadlines were still given many options to use their certificates. For those that could not adjust, they were able to contact Crowd Cut for reimbursements. More
