The Copper King Mansion B&B was simply amazing! We stayed here for a night as we were passing through Butte. The pictures and description on the website does not do this B & B justice. The rooms were a step back in time, very clean and comfortable. You go here for an ‘experience’, not expecting a 5 star accommodation. The owners have done a wonderful job of preserving this historical landmark. After a very comfortable night’s sleep, we were served a hot breakfast of waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, tea, coffee or juice. We were treated to a free tour of the property as part of our accommodation. The tour guide did a fantastic job I only wish I could remember her name so she could get proper credit. Our host for the night was John who was a very kind man with some great stories. Upon arrival we were checked in and he immediately assisted us with making our dinner arrangements in town. We will definitely go back not only to stay at the Copper King but to check out more of Butte’s rich history, which I had known nothing about prior to our visit.

We found the Copper King Mansion on line, and rather than give a lengthy description I would recommend anyone interested to look at their website. In summary, this is a historic building, originally the home of a mining magnate who spared no expense to create an impressive house which is still clearly a home, even though it is effectively a museum.

The owners, Pat and Erin, were incredibly welcoming and spent time chatting to us, before we settled into the Master Suite. This has a beautiful bedroom, a octagonal sitting room and a large bathroom with original fixtures. In fact, the house retains many of its original features.

It was a truly unique experience and we felt privileged to be able to share this home for a night. If I was going to be absolutely factual, rather than describing the experience from the emotional part of my brain, I would have to admit that having only a bath rather than a shower was a little inconvenient, but one of the other rooms has a duly amazing shower which goes by the nickname of the plumber's nightmare, which shoots water at you from all sides and looks rather like an instrument of torture. Anyway, it was a small price to pay, and you could hold a dance in that bathroom...

After the breakfast, which again was perhaps not entirely to my taste - French toast not being my thing but as often seems the case with US B&Bs, you don't get a choice - we were treated to a tour of the 37 room mansion with many original and entertaining artefacts, such as. A player piano, an original Edison phonograph etc. We were again treated like special guests and came away with a wealth of photos which I can't share, and some precious memories. Thanks, Erin and Pat!

Room Tip: All the rooms are different but each one offers something special. If you can, go for the Master Suite!   -John W.

 

This is a wonderful stop. We were searching off cell phone traveling the interstate. We were looking for two rooms and first calls were fruitless. The Mansion had two rooms. The first mention was a three-room suite. I almost hung up figuring the budget would not fit. Price was very reasonable. Rooms are all furnished and decorated with period antiques. Some pieces were even originals. Bed was comfy. Hostess was delightful. She knows her history of property and loves to share. A mansion tour comes with the room. Breakfast was excellent but not extravagant. It is located close to old downtown area. Lots of options for dinner out. Worth the stop. Lots to see in the area. We hope to get back this way.
