My significant other and I stayed here over Valentines Day weekend this year, and it was nothing but amazing. When we arrived, we had a nice little tour of this amazing mansion, it was like nothing I've ever seen before, like taking a step back in time. We were brought to our room, the Lillian James, and it was much...

Surprise retreat to this amazing, warm, peaceful, wonderful Duluth B&B for our 32nd anniversary and my 15th leap-year birthday! From the moment we pulled up and went in the carriage side entrance, Ken was gracious and welcoming. We were invited to tour the mansion, which is exquisitely kept up, detailed, and calls you to understand the history of the home...which...

We had a great, romantic stay at the Cotton Mansion. Easily one of the best of the many B&B's we have stayed at. The house is amazingly beautiful, full of detailed woodwork and original features. We were in the Bell Cotton room located on the front corner of the house so lots of natural light. Bed was comfortable and in...

We stayed at the Cotton Mansion for our Honeymoon.
