  • My fiance and I stayed at Copper King Mansion for one night. It was such an interesting place within walking distance to places to eat, and the owners were so nice and helpful. They make breakfast individually for each room of guests and it was delicious, especially the coffee! We were heading south for the solar eclipse right after and the owners spent over an hour talking to us about the best places to see it. I'd recommend staying here to anyone looking for something more unique and intimate than an average hotel. The only downside was that the internet was very slow in our room (the Master Suite).
  • Beautiful historic mansion. The woodwork is amazing! And a good bit of history of the owners. The tour was totally worth it.
  • Fantastic tour!! Beautiful place with such a rich history. A must see.
  • Without a doubt the best hotel! Mainly because of the history involved and the look of the place
  • Sonya, our tour guide, was marvelous. The whole experience was entertaining and informative.
