Wow, Wow and Wow!

5 on January 23, 2015

Not only is this place beautiful, but everything and everyone was so welcoming. Every detail was thought of to make our stay more comfortable. From the complimentary fresh baked cookies and our choice of drinks from the mini-fridge to tempurpedic mattress pads and our gracious host/owner Herb Warren. After a romantic evening of wine and huge Juguizzi bath, we left completely satisfied the next morning after being fortunate enough to experience Herb's "specialty" Carmel Apple French Toast! Our stay here was our first, but we plan on making it an anniversary tradition! Thanks to the owners for restoring this place (while adding modern amenities). Sincerely, The Schrecker's

Perfect Stay

I'm a business traveler and for very close to what I pay at chains, the Dupont Mansion is an amazing experience and value. The owners spared no expense to restore this gorgeous estate to it's original beauty. The service, room, and overall experience truly was outstanding. I have no excuse to stay at a chain in or around Louisville ever again. And the owners have more properties in the area so you have other amazing options.

Amazing renovations

My husband and I stayed here for our 1st year anniversary in September. We stayed in the biggest suite and were very happy with our choice. The Inn keeper was fantastic and gave us a grand tour with all of the houses history. We had a couple glasses of wine which sit in Decanters throughout the house, and then went to dinner. We enjoyed our coffee on the deck in the garden the next morning before breakfast. Over all a great B&B we have been to many and so far & this is our favorit for Louisville.

Beautiful and Relaxing Stay

4.4 on October 25, 2011

My husband and I stayed at the Dupont in October 2010. We traditionally try to find a "haunted" B&B to stay at around every Halloween. Mr. Dupont never made his presence known while we were there, but we didn't mind! This mansion has been beautifully restored, and it's location in Old Louisville is absolutely breathtaking. We were very pleased with our innkeeper. She kept up with our sweet tooth by making fresh goodies every evening. Throughout the house there are bowls of chocolates and carafes filled with wine. We enjoyed hearing some of her stories about the area, and she was a pleasure to visit with. We hope to visit again sometime!

Beautiful but misleading

2.8 on January 03, 2011

I was told this inn was one of the most beautiful bed and breakfast establishments in Louisville. And I was looking forward to introducing my wonderful girlfriend to her first B&B experience. This inn almost ruined that for me, however. It absolutely is beautiful, with such authenticity as you can rarely find. Plus, the food was outstanding for breakfast. However, I do not plan to patronize this property ever again. The owners seemed quite kind at first but when there was a misunderstanding about what I wanted (and believed I had paid for) they did worse than just not fix it or offer an alternative. Their innkeeper became downright rude and I cancelled the remainder of my stay, opting for another bed and breakfast. At the end of the day, this establishment's proprietors lied to me about the amenities their property offered. And then they compounded their error with rudeness. I hope others looking for their first Bed and Breakfast experience find what they're seeking, as my girlfriend and I did at the second place after leaving this one.

Fabulous for a honeymoon

4.0 on October 01, 2010

We stayed at this gracious manor house for the first night of our honeymoon and had a fabulous experience. The innkeepers were friendly and provided everything we needed for a comfortable stay and breakfast the next morning was scrumptious. The room and bathroom were beautiful, well kept and in perfect order for our arrival. Thank you for a wonderful start to the rest of our lives together!

enjoyable stay

Very friendly and accommodating staff. Simple and elegant room, which pleased me immensely, as over the top Victorian not my style. I would recommend and stay here again.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Dupont Mansion and it could not have been more perfect in every way. The Dupont Mansion is a perfect example of old Louisville Victorian elegance and opulence. This just isn't a bed and breakfast, it is a true window to the past as how beautiful Louisville really was in the Golden Age. You can almost feel the presence of Mr. Alfred Dupont and imagine all of the wonderful parties held in this wonderful house in Victorian times. We are looking forward to returning soon.

A beautiful weekend at the Dupont Mansion!

5 on March 05, 2009

We had such a wonderful stay at the Dupont Mansion! The mansion was full of history and charm. Mary(the inn-keeper) was delightful and cared for our every need! The breakfast was outstanding! We woke up every morning to the savory smells of delicious food! I couldn't imagine staying in a more beautiful and elegant bed and breakfast while staying in Loisville! We can't wait to spend another long weekend at the Dupont Mansion!

Cozy, romantic respite

Absolutely wonderful. We couldn't have been happier. The decor was charming and impeccable, the breakfast fantastic, the mood welcoming--not to mention the chocolate and wine in rooms throughout the house. It felt like stepping back in time. We enjoyed relaxing in front of our private fireplace. What luxury!
