We had never done a Bed and Breakfast before I can tell you that we will definitely return to the Dupont Mansion! Gerry made us feel so comfortable and welcome! We arrived early while people were working on painting and planting and putting the finishing touches getting ready for Derby week. Everyone was so helpful and friendly. My wife and I weren't feeling so good but we were trying to have a special 25th wedding anniversary and thanks to all of the suggestions we did!(A very short walk to the Italian Restaurant at the end of the alley, another wonderful experience). Every room was so well appointed and super clean!(I am picky and I am saying everything was perfectly clean!) Because we were a little early we got to see them all and I can say that I would have been happy staying in any of them. We stayed in the Edison room and I will probably ask for it again due to proximity to the guest kitchen and one less flight of stairs. BTW I would recommend thinking out your wardrobe and bringing 1 small bag we brought our closets so that we would have choices...lugging 2 suitcase up the stairs was no fun...lesson learned! We espescially liked the option to have breakfast at a small intimate table vs. The large table with the group of guests everyone was very nice and if we had felt better we probably would have joined them .I would recommend this B&B to anyone especially if you are one of those people who were disappointed in a previous experience, I think that this is exactly how they are supposed to be run!
- 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
