Dupont Mansion B&B
Ranked #2 of 15 Louisville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 1, 2007

Somehow I ended up in Louisville intended for New York. It could have been a disaster and yet a sweet surprise sprung up in the midst of traveling confusion. I took a tour of the Dupont Mansion intending to perhaps one day return. As it turned out, I did return--that day! The hospitality was above and beyond; perhaps that's what led me back. The accomodations exquisite; it is obvious the owners have a brilliant eye for beauty and comfort. I'm sure I will continue to compare future B&B experiences to this one and so far it has been the best yet! It is such a rare treasure to have spent time there. I will not forget the incredible kindness to a weary traveler as myself.

As this was the first weekend away from our 8 month old son we were rather nervous. Mary, the innkeeper, made us feel at home. From our late check in to fabulous home cooked brownies, to wine in the living room (with an amazing hand painted mural and grand piano) and a wonderul gourmet breakfast both mornings, everything was great. The rooms were impeccable and luxurious and we were able to look in all the unoccupied rooms and suites to see where we want to stay next time. Great restaurants are within walking distance, amazing Victorian architecture is everywhere and we even had great weather. We slept in the beautiful Hattie Speed room and enjoyed the fireplace in the bathroom! Everything was perfect and we can't wait to return! Thanks Mary!

My fiancee/wife and I stayed at the Dupont over our wedding weekend at the end of April. We previewed almost all of the B&Bs in the Louisville area and the Dupont was clearly the cream of the crop. The rooms are beyond description. Our bathroom by itself was larger than most hotels rooms, had stairs leading to a large two person tub, a double vanity and a separate shower. The bed was luxurious and everything about the room was perfect. The house itself is a tribute to the architecture of the time/area, service was exceptional and the breakfast was some of the best we have ever enjoyed. We paid $200/night to stay in one of the suites and would have paid twice that for the experience we enjoyed. It was a perfect place to spend the best weekend.
