We stayed 4 nights and absolutely loved our time at the Dupont Mansion. Herb made a range of tasty breakfasts and was a joy to talk with about local lore and the recent passing of Muhammad Ali. We've stayed in a number of Kentucky B&Bs and the Dupont Mansion is one of the best! Enjoy!

This was probably my favorite lodging on our 2 week long trip to Kentucky.The house was built circa 1879. It is a rare decorative Italianate mansion with ornate carved marble fireplaces, hardwood floors, plaster moldings and 14 foot ceiings. 10 foot doors and windows make for a charming old mansion. It is furnished with antiques and period furnishings. Ken and...

Great place to stay, good value, great breakfast. Would stay there again. The only complaint was the road construction in front of the establishment. The caretakers and owners were very friendly and helpful.

Thanks for the compliments. Sorry about that road construction. Unfortunately it was going on just when you were here. It's over now. We've also had construction next door recently. That too is about over and in the place of an empty parking lot, our next door neighbor is now a $11 million museum addition showcasing regional history by the Filson...

My girlfriend and I spent two nights at Dupont Mansion the weekend after the Kentucky Derby and couldn't have been more pleased by the convenience, the comfort, and the hospitality we encountered in the heart of Louisville. The hotel is in a historic, verdant part of Louisville, but is by no means in the heart of the action - be...

We stayed here for one night. The B&B was very beautiful and the host Herb was very welcoming. The room was large, clean and quiet. The breakfast was very good.

Herb W, Owner at Dupont Mansion B&B, responded to this review

Glad to know of these issues. Now we will always turn that light off at night. We have ordered a stronger wi-fi signal and expect that to be installed within a week. It certainly is helpful to learn of issues like this. We want our guests to be totally satisfied without a single issue whenever possible.

We stayed at the Dupont Mansion for two nights recently while we began the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. We arrived very late and Sue was wonderfully understanding and arranged for our late check in. The room was of a comfortable size and appointed well-enough. The bathroom was small but all that you need. Breakfasts were lovely and service was very sweet....

Thank you, Ann and Ken for being such wonderful innkeepers & hosts. The breakfast was superb and the rooms were wonderful. The readily available glass of wine made us feel like special guests. When we are in Louisville again, we know where our first choice to stay will be! Thank you, again.

Enjoy this Victorian Mansion in the heart of Old Louisville. The accommodations will make you feel like royalty, as will the wonderful breakfasts served every morning. The neighborhood is stunning with so many Victorian homes and the location is convenient to downtown and the many sites in Louisville. Splurge a bit and enjoy the romance of a bygone era!!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The DuPont Mansion B&B is an historic treasure with modern amenities. The tall ceilings, ornate fireplaces and carved woodwork look and feel like the circa 1889 Victorian Mansion that it is. Yet the high speed free WiFi throughout the Mansion, flat screen TVs in all guest rooms and Jacuzzi tubs in every bath (two are double) provide luxury beyond anything imagined over a century ago. ... more   less
