  • I love the Copper King, though part of me doesn't want to rate it because I want to make sure the rooms aren't all full the next time we go! ;) In all seriousness, it was a phenomenal experience. I stayed there for one night last week with 2 friends in Andree's room, and we also took a tour. The staff are all extremely friendly and knowledgeable, considering the owners grew up in the mansion. Erin treated us like we were part of her family for the night, which was a really welcoming experience. Our tour guide was Maureen, who told us she had only been working there for two weeks, but she already seemed to have learned quite a bit about the mansion and didn't seem nearly that new. Moreover, she was interested and enthusiastic about her job, which is really what makes someone good at what they do. I hope she's there the next time we go. Breakfast was served in the elegant dining hall with about 10 of us seated around the table, so we got to get to know the other visitors. It was a great meal of fruit, French Toast with powdered sugar, juice, and more coffee than I could drink. My friends and I are already planning and saving up for next year, because we want to stay in the master suite for at least 4 days so we can just enjoy being there instead of exploring Butte all day like we did this time. Thank you, Erin, Maureen, and crew! Mal, Cassie, and Brenna
  • Amazing historical mansion in a historic old mining town. The mansion is furnished in the decadent fashion fitting for one of the "Copper Kings". So glad this place is preserved and that it is a B&B. The staff are amazing and knowledgable! Take a step back in time and live like a king!
  • Visited the mansion with my parents, all the way from Virginia. The tour guides were knowledgeable and the great-granddaughter of Mrs. Cody was very friendly and welcoming. Overall, had a wonderful time getting to know about an important part of Butte history!
  • Rude. No parking. Employees park in neighbors parking lot. Ask patrons to park in neighbors parking lot. Try to upsell everything.
  • The home is amazing, but the experience left much to desire. Our tour guide, a young lady who lacked knowledge and the ability to articulate information about the estate. The few words we could understand was about what she disliked about the furnishings. She was very rude to the guests and was not complimentary of the experience. Randy Redmond.
