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 have celebrated two of our anniversaries at Cotton Mansion and will be back for future ones. The Terrace Suite is gorgeous and the breakfast is outstanding. Ken and Kimberly make you feel at home and have great knowledge of the history of the Cotton family and the mansion.

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...

My husband and I just spent 3 amazing nights at the Cotton Mansion for our honeymoon and we loved every minute of it. Beautiful, quiet setting with easy access to sites right in Duluth or to head to the North Shore. Our room in the carriage house was spacious with a fireplace and whirlpool, and breakfast was delicious with something...

We stayed at the Cotton Mansion for our Honeymoon. We had a fabulous time, had a warm greeting when we arrived and were given a tour of the mansion and told "if it's not nailed down or locked fell free to look and touch" within the floors available to the guests. Everything was very clean and well maintained. We had...

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary in Duluth staying at this stunning mansion.

My wife and I came to Duluth for our honeymoon and this bed and breakfast, suggested to us by a family member, was one of the central highlights of our time.

The house is beautifully restored. We stayed in the Belle Cotton Suite which was comfy. Enjoyed a late night chess game in the library. Breakfast was tasty and our hosts were hospitable. Only downside was that we always had a problem figuring out how to get into driveway/parking area. Maybe we should have tried GPS? Plus we couldn't find ice...
