About the property

Historic Bed & Breakfast, Filled with Antiques, Downtown, Immaculately Restored

Looking for more than the typical vacation home? This beautiful historic landmark is one of the most well-known homes in Salt Lake City. Our rooms are LIGHTLY themed and they each have their own private bathroom. The common areas are filled with classic antiques and we pride ourselves on the ambiance and the comfort that this home provides to our guests.

The Ellerbeck Mansion is conveniently located at the corner of 3rd Avenue and B Street, in a quiet residential neighborhood just five blocks from the center of downtown Salt Lake City. Guests can walk to Historic Temple Square, the Salt Palace convention center, museums, Family History Library, downtown shopping and dining. The mansion is a short 13-minute drive from the Salt Lake International Airport and just 30 minutes from our famous ski resorts.

We are big enough to meet your business and travel needs, yet small enough to provide you with the intimate grace of Victorian times.

GOURMET HOT BREAKFAST: Our chef will prepare a gourmet hot breakfast for each guest for free. Breakfast is served from 7:30 to 9:30 in the formal dining room (or in your room if you prefer). For those guests who can't make that time or would prefer a light breakfast, we also have lots of self-serve breakfast items to choose from any hour of the morning.

SUMMER HILL ROOM: This is a beautiful room on the upper floor right off of the formal reading area. It has it's own television and private bathroom, which is located right outside of the room. The queen-size bed has super high-quality bedding and linens. It's our most-affordable room, but it's just as comfortable as any of our other rooms! You get your own private bathroom with this room and the entrance to the bathroom is right outside of your room.

This is a 124-year-old home. It does not have the sterile, whitewashed rooms that you see at the Marriott. It has character, and with character comes flaws. It is in wonderful shape, but it's still old. County health code prohibits guests from using the kitchen in any bed & breakfast. If you need a kitchen, please rent one of our many vacation homes.

About Cami

I'm the owner of several vacation homes in the area, but this is my pride & joy and is the flagship of the company. I'm a retired U.S. Army officer and I've settled here in Salt Lake City to enjoy the mountains and the easy way of life that Utah has to offer. I'll treat you like family while you're here in my home and make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Cami purchased this bed and breakfast in 1892

Why Cami chose Salt Lake City

The Ellerbeck Mansion is one of the oldest homes in the state of Utah. It's been perfectly restored to it's original glory of when it was built in 1892 by Thomas & Henrietta Ellerbeck. Thomas was the original clerk to President Brigham Young and died in 1895. Henrietta was Thomas' 3rd plural wife and lived in the house until 1903, when she sold it to the Armstrong family, who eventually turned it into a Bed & Breakfast. The rich history of this home, along with its antique ambiance, make it the perfect bed and breakfast for those who are looking for a classic mansion with all of the modern amenities.

What makes this bed and breakfast unique

The Ellerbeck Mansion is unique because of its location, since it's a mere 4 blocks from the center of the city. It's in the historic home district of the city, so it doesn't have an urban feeling at all, yet it's so close to everything in the city.

One of the most unique features of the Ellerbeck Mansion is the carriage house out back. It can host small and large events in it, including weddings, corporate retreats, company training retreats, etc. The VRBO listing page for that events center is www.vrbo.com/825400.

Quiet Room

  • 5 of 5

We rented three rooms here for the weekend. This room was not as grand as the Autumn Room, but it was really nice considering we paid less for it. Probably the best bargain for the money. It had it's own private bathroom right outside of the door to the room.

Best room for the money

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this room. We toured the whole place and there were some rooms that were fancier, but for the money, this one was excellent. The bed was very comfortable and it was nice to have our own table to eat breakfast at inside the room. Breakfast was awesome.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

This is a great room in a great bed & breakfast. It's the lowest-priced room in the home, but I don't know why because it's beautiful. Very clean and lots of bright natural light. The breakfast was unbelievably good. I didn't ask, but I'm guessing that the Innkeeper was a professional chef before - breakfast was THAT fancy.

Not recomended

  • 2 of 5

We have stayed in few other B&Bs and our experience was excellent, but this time was very different.

For starters the A/C system barely cooled our room and with temps hitting 100 during the day it never was comfortable.

The breakfast part of the BnB was very disappointing with food, donuts and pastries that were many days old.

The garbage in the dining area almost over flowed, as it was not being emptied daily, we had to search for toilet paper and at one point had to contact the manager to find the location of more tp.

I feel we were neglected by management and would never recommend staying at Ellerbeck mansion

Great B&B - Better than any Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful historic bed & breakfast while visiting family and it was absolutely fantastic. The Innkeeper was very attentive but it didn't feel like he was standing over us - he stayed in the carriage house out back. The free breakfast was wonderful and we upgraded to the gourmet breakfast a couple of days, which was worth the few bucks. The Innkeeper actually had happy hour for us at their antique bar (coolest part of the house) in the afternoon and we had a great time. 5 stars for sure!!
