The Olcutt House has the kind of charm I didn't know still existed. I was at ease the moment I walked through the front door. David, you have built a beautiful and peaceful place. I will return. Thank you.

We've stayed at the Olcott House for 3 out of 5 years when running Grandma's Marathon. We've stayed in the Superior sweet the past two visits, but chose the Carriage house this time. I am a tough person to please, as my expectations are HIGH. The Carriage house has a large sitting area, spacious bedroom, kitchen which includes coffee maker,...

Such luxury and comfort! It is a delight to spend...

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....

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...

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...

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...
