The Olcott has rapidly become our favorite B&B, and is often the standard by which we measure other Bed and Breakfasts. First of all, the historic house's charm cannot be overstated. There are timepieces, pictures, and memorabilia to take in and explore, and the rooms are at once luxurious and appropriate for the overall feel of the era. Second, David and Jerry are just amazing. David is very present, attentive, and interesting (and interested). They are very knowledgeable about the area. Third, the breakfast...outstanding! Fourth, even though there are lots of fun things to do in Duluth, it's almost more fun to just hang around the Olcott House just to read, play one of the numerous games available, or just learn about the house. There is a music room, a sort of game room, and the rooms (the guest rooms as well as the music room, sitting room, etc.) themselves are comfortable enough to make you want to just sit around and read all day. I could go on and on, but this is my (our) favorite place to stay, and there is simply nothing negative to say about it. On every level, the Olcott House is wonderful.

This was the first time my wife and I had done a B&B. After our experience at the Olcott House, we will never waste another penny on a hotel stay! David and his staff do an amazing job and will make your stay one to remember. The breakfast was way above and beyond what we had expected. It really made me want to have breakfast 3 times a day! The artwork and the decor of the Olcott house was warm and inviting. So much class, history, beauty everywhere you look. We stayed in the Carriage room which was a detached suite from the main mansion. It was spotless, peaceful, cozy, and beautiful. David (the owner) is very knowledgeable about the Olcott house and about Duluth. He spent a lot of time talking with us and answering every question we could come up with. He made a number of recommendations about our stay in Duluth and was spot on with each one from evening dining to daytime tours. In all, my wife's 30th birthday was one she and I will never forget. We will be coming back to the Olcott House again. The only bad thing is that unless we go again this weekend, our next visit won't be soon enough!

All eight of my immediate family stayed at the Olcott House this past summer to celebrate my parent's 35th wedding anniversary. We were so fortunate to have found the Olcott House. Welcoming hosts, lovely breakfasts, antique furnishings, and relaxing mornings/afternoons on the porch made the Olcott House a superb choice for us. David was so accommodating to our large family. As appreciators of antiques, my parents absolutely loved the decor of the Olcott House. But the best of all was our time spent on the porch. In the mornings we drank coffee before breakfast, and in the afternoons we enjoyed lemonade, wine, and cheeses. This was exactly what we wanted for our escape from our busy schedules.

My husband and I stayed at the Olcott House in September at 2011 as part of a weekend getaway to Duluth. The house was beautiful and very well kept. The owners seem to relish in the homes history, as it has many photographs and artifacts that were those of the original owners. Also - each room had a book David and Jerry (the owners) had put together explaining the homes' history and how they eventually came to own it. They also put several thoughtful touches throughout each of the rooms and you can tell they enjoy antiquing and finding fun artifacts to tastefully decorate each of the rooms. When we arrived, we were greeted by David who was very helpful in providing us recommendations of things to do and see while we were in Duluth. He also provided us terrific restaurant recommendations - none of which disappointed. We found David, Jerry, and their staff to be very hospitable. As I would assume many folks traveling to a bed and breakfast would enjoy, was the ability and warm welcoming environment in which to talk and chat with other guests. Breakfast was served at 9am in the dining room with tables of 4, 6, and 2, so you could chat with other guests if you chose. (and by the way - the breakfast prepared was simply stupendous ... ) In addition, they put out wine, cheese, and meat around 5pm. We were delighted to enjoy this cocktail hour on the porch with 4 other people who were staying there. It was a great way to start our evening. My husband and I very much look forward to staying at the Olcott House again and we will absolutely recommend it to our friends and family. We thank David and Jerry for helping make our anniversary celebration one we will remember.

My husband and I so enjoyed our stay at the Olcott House. The house and grounds are beautiful and you truly feel at home when you walk in the entrance. We stayed in the East Wing Suite and absolutely loved it. The care put into the home from the bedding, to the books, to each trinket and vase makes you feel completely at home and at the same time like you are stepping into history. Breakfasts were lovely and delicious and David and Jerry are great. David proved to be a perfect host with spot on recommendations. We felt like me made two friends in our hosts and definitely will be back and make a anniversary tradition at the Olcott House.

We made a short trip to Duluth to see our first grandchild and discovered that the rates at the Olcott House were comparable to the downtown 3-star chains, so why not? Delightful! Arrived on a very hot summer night; host David had the air conditioner and fan going in our room for us and it was quite comfortable. We joked that we'd need a ladder to get into our four-poster, but loved the grandeur of the bed and the room. Breakfasts were inventive and delicious (on the rich side, but isn't nice to be a little spoiled?); dietary requests were gladly accomodated. And while our host's personal manner felt a bit reserved, we took him at his word and called on him whenever needed; we felt most welcome and cared for. We would definitely return when back in Duluth...

My husband and I received a gift certificate to stay at the Olcott House Bed & Breakfast. We did a one-night overnight stay 7/31 - 8/1 and truly, it was not long enough! This place is exquisite and so well-taken-care of. The rooms are beautiful and clean and it's close to everything (Canal Park, restaurants, Glensheen Mansion). David was our host and he was so kind and accomodating - not to mention a great cook - our breakfast was wonderful. I would recommend this place in a heartbeat. A must-see & stay in Duluth!

We visit the Duluth area each year...This time we decided to try something new...stay at a B&B rather than our usual stay at Canal Park or up the shore at a condo. What a treat! We couldn't have had a better experience had we written a script! David was so very welcoming and genuinely interested in our stay. He made dinner reservtions for us and adjusted his breakfast menu for me as I am a vegetarian. As the state parks were closed, David helped us discover new trails and creeks that in all the years of visiting had never had the pleasure to explore. A better alternative to the crowds we would normally see at Gooseberry ot Split Rock! Our room...the Lester Master Suite was so comfortable and tastefully done. We loved the library and side porch and I spent an afternoon out there reading while my husband played golf with a local friend. We loved the Olcott and are thankful that we got to experience a little piece of heaven for a couple days in Duluth!

The Olcott may be a house to see on a walking tour of historic Duluth mansions. The owners’ taste is demonstrated by arrangements of books and vintage objet d'art throughout the house. While the proprietor’s love of old homes and garage sales is evident, I won’t be the first reviewer to suggest he lacks a similar affection for guests. Olcott House reminds me of visiting grandmother’s home as a child; we were tolerated, but not really welcome. “Breakfast is at 9am. I think I’m doing eggs-benedict”, he sniffed. “Do you drink Coffee”, he asked. “Yes”, we replied in unison, emphatically. “Coffee’s at 8am”, he replied. “Really? We’re early risers”, we said. “REALLY”, he replied, with emphasis. Here was an opportunity that even a reasonably attentive host might have seized to accommodate a guest’s desire for a cup of coffee, never minding paying customers. But the opportunity passed, declined in favor of whatever more important activity was planned until 8am. Olcott House accommodations are equally indifferent; not particularly clean, not in particularly good condition, not particularly comfortable, not altogether particularly functional. The environment of an old house, however, neither surprised us, nor bothered us, but the house’s careful staging in contrast to the proprietor’s lack of warmth and hospitality made us feel no more important than props in a drama featuring the house, starring him, but where guests are not really welcomed in reality. One final thing. We had a private conversation with the owner when we checked in concerning playing the house piano. That conversation was later repeated to us by another guest in the house, suggesting we were being mocked. Such creepy things as that make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.
