This is our return stay at the Olcott House and will stay again on future trips. David is a wonderful and gracious host. We stayed in the Lake Superior Suite - it has a three - season porch and an outdoor deck. Amazing! The house is gorgeous and the sitting rooms are so inviting, it's hard to leave the house. It was a luxurious stay at an affordable price.

We just love to stop at the Olcott House! From our arrival in the late afternoon with the wine and cheese buffet, to the room, to the space for relaxation in the sitting rooms, to the breakfast in the morning we get to have the luxury that isn't available in most places. David is a terrific host and is always helpful to help you select a place for dinner and makes sure that everything is to your liking. The rooms are quiet and elegant with a great bed. The breakfast is out of this world with handcrafted food that is beautifully served. The place to stay!

My partner and I stayed at the Olcott House for a wedding we were attending in Duluth this weekend. Since neither of us has stayed at a B&B before, we were not really sure what to expect. We read several reviews of B&Bs in Duluth and decided to book the Olcott house several months ago. We arrived and were greeted by the owner who gave us a tour of the house. We literally felt like royalty. The house is in divine condition with beautiful decor and amenities including wine/snacks in the evening, breakfast in the morning, sitting rooms, book and DVD collection, daily newspaper, and a "tour center" with information about the the town, a wrap-around porch, and a relaxing garden.

We were shown to our room, which like the rest of the house, was gorgeous and well-kept. From the four poster bed to the wood floors, to the furnishings, everything was like a dream. The room was outfitted with comfortable furniture, books, fresh filtered water in a crystal decanter, plush robes, fireplace, tv, dvd player (huge collection of dvds in the library downstairs), towels, history of the house book, and of course lots of space.

Although I am not an expert on B&Bs by any means, I will definitely sing the praises of the Olcott house. We felt taken care of but by no means did we feel like we were in a house with other people. Although the house was booked for the weekend, we did not see anyone except at breakfast. We felt like we had the entire house to ourselves. Thank you for allowing us to take a trip through history and live as kings. We will be back again!

From the beautifully decorated main floor to the outstanding breakfasts to the private, comfortable rooms, the Olcott House delivers on every front. David is the consummate host--personable yet keenly aware of his guests' needs. His recommendations on things to do in and around Duluth as well as his restaurant suggestions made our visit to the area that much better. Our stay was, without question, one of the highlights of our summer. We can't wait to return!

Room Tip: The East Wing Suite was private yet spacious.

Wonderful setting in Duluth...loved the wine hour on the porch and cream cheese stuffed French toast in the morning...we stayed in the Carriage House....so private! David is a great host and the neighborhood is wonderful for a morning walk
