The Copper King Mansion B&B was simply amazing! We stayed here for a night as we were passing through Butte. The pictures and description on the website does not do this B & B justice. The rooms were a step back in time, very clean and comfortable. You go here for an 'experience', not expecting a 5 star accommodation. The owners have done a wonderful job of preserving this historical landmark. After a very comfortable nights sleep, we were served a hot breakfast of waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, tea, coffee or juice. We were treated to a free tour of the property as part of our accommodation. The tour guide did a fantastic job I only wish I could remember her name so she could get proper credit. Our host for the night was John who was a very kind man with some great stories. Upon arrival we were checked in and he immediately assisted us with making our dinner arrangements in town. We will definitely go back not only to stay at the Copper King but to check out more of Butte's rich history, which I had known nothing about prior to our visit.
