The Olcott House exemplifies my own dreams of an imagined and desired life- a celebrated, historic reflection of Duluth in it's own beautiful heyday.
With a warm-cotton batting welcome, well-spruced with a profound dollop of old-style southern living and a sun shaded veranda porch--What a heyday! My very earthbound sons remarked on the repeated tale as a, "damned high octane teacup hello with feather bed-effect landing!'
David and Jerry, were exemplary hosts and offered all we could have wanted in old/new world charm. High echelon and yet homespun breakfasts, Sultry southern porches and white wine & cheese comforts. High caliber historical accomodations and yet comfortable tester beds, High-tech availability, yet simple art deco library offerings and the ultimate comfort furntiure, Staunch menu/restaurant recommendations and thoughtful local stage/movie offerings. I was particularily impressed with their classic video library and their significant knowledge of old movie knowledge- be prepared for Judy Garland trivia or Elizabeth Taylor expertise- I was tested and found victorious & smiling!
We found this home to be welcoming and exceptional, please treat yourself...!!
