  • This mansion is breath taking & the owners are very nice and hospitable. The only downfall is that its very cluttered. They have so much stuff everywhere you look that it takes away from the beauty and craftsmanship of the building. Also, I felt like the tour was a waist of time. Our tour guide didn't know any of the history of the house, she could only point out her favorite things, but our overnight stay was enjoyable.
  • Great history and the staff is happy to talk as long as the questions come! Good breakfast, comfortable beds, unique experience.
  • Took a tour here and the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Since it's an active BnB, the tour was a little more "hands-on" than other historic home tour: listened to old wax cylinders, sat in chairs, etc.
  • 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
  • A great place to stay and an amazing tour!
