Circa 1908. Four blocks from Lake Superior in the historic East Side, this 16,000-square-foot, three-story Italian Renaissance mansion was once the home of Joseph Bell Cotton, John D. Rockefeller's mining attorney. Its grand entrance, beautiful solarium, library and elegant parlor with carved alabaster fireplace and beamed ceiling offer a refined experience. Generous guest bedrooms and suites are distinctive, romantic retreats. Some feature fireplaces, whirlpools, overstuffed lounge chairs and sofas, Oriental rugs and antique furnishings. A candlelight breakfast is served on fine china, crystal and silver in the exquisite dining room. Eggs Benedict and stuffed French toast are among the mouth-watering creations. Wine and cheese are enjoyed in the evening. This gracious setting is perfect for small weddings or other romantic occasions and corporate gatherings.Publicity and Awards: HGTV's The Good Life, If Walls Could Talk.Location: Historic East side and mansion district.
