Front door and 45 foot long front hallway, Welcome to A Storybook Inn!Ah...Casablanca. Many people's favorite suite! MUCH larger than appears in photo! Golden hued Casablanca has thick sisal wall to wall carpeting, oriental rugs, antique Chesterfield sofa, carved sleigh bed and large armoire, build in cabinetry, walk in closet with mini-frig, thick robes monogrammed with Storybook, large antique writing desk. Leather and rattan chair by fireplace with footstool and side table. Windows going all across room facing wooded park. Bathroom has been newly remodeled w/air whirlpool and furniture style vanity & original built-in cabinetry. Unique "Casablanca" chandelier. Guests say that they want to move into this suite permanently! They also say and I agree, "pictures on the Internet are good, but they don't do the Inn or guest suites justice. Agreed!
The Innkeeper's Recipe for Organic Blackberry Breakfast Pudding with warm Canadian Maple Syrup, freshly made whipped cream. This delectible treat is actually good for you!  Fresh homemade afternoon desserts served daily.  Decadent dark chocolate bundt brownies topped with fresh whipped cream and garnished with strawberries...every afternoon a new dessert indulgence or a savory snack will await you!
Outside in the beautiful courtyard inside the old brick wall. Outside entrance to conservatory. A Storybook Inn's dining hall is outstanding. A room so lovely with such rare architectural design, one must see it to appreciate it. With ornately framed oil paintings adorning the walls, large fireplace, the 4 large windows, and original deep coffered ceiling, Bose speakers hidden away on the deep molding, thick Oriental rug, Chippendale banquet table and chairs, 3 individual tables for two, lovely china, crystal, quality flatware...and oh yes, food as lovely to look at as to eat! The double French doors lead to the Victorian screen porch. All of this goes into making this room a favorite with guests.
A Storybook Inn at evening time after a beautiful, well attended Christmas Tea. Gray mare and spring foal. Photo that Innkeeper snapped across road from farm.
We spoil you with afternoon snacks. Here are some hand-dipped dark chocolate (using natural Ghirardelli chocolate) strawberries. We serve homemade Oatmeal Raisin cookies, Apple Bourbon Cake, Dark Chocolate Brownies and a host of other homemade dessert snacks. "Gone With the Wind Suite" There is no plaque that says, "Rhett and Scarlett slept here" but with the lovely "Old South" feel of the suite, you feel as if they could have! This large 2-room, very private suite, is fantastic. Elegant but not fussy. Gorgeous tall headboard on the magnificent king bed. Spacious sitting room with hardwood floor is beautifully furnished, including a custom daybed and well done original oil painting of Vivian Leigh as Miss Scarlet by nationally acclaimed portrait artist Steve Sawyer.  The thick mattress with built-in memory foam is so comfortable, the guests don't want to get up, but the morning aromas of the full, fresh breakfasts make getting up well worth while. Flat screen TV w/DVD player. Free movie library. satellite TV. Towel warmer, hair dryer, and deluxe lighted make-up mirror. Easy chair, antique desk. A large ceramic tile bath with a walk-in 2-person shower w/dual shower heads. WONDERFUL SUITE!
A Storybook Inn's dining hall is outstanding. A room so lovely with such rare architectural design, one must see it to appreciate it. Lovely photo with older faux finish. With ornately framed oil paintings adorning the walls, large fireplace, the 4 large windows, and original deep coffered ceiling, Bose speakers hidden away on the deep molding, thick Oriental rug, Chippendale banquet table and chairs, 3 individual tables for two, lovely china, crystal, quality flatware...and oh yes, food as lovely to look at as to eat! The double French doors lead to the new beautiful, sunny glass conservatory where breakfast is served each morning year round. The Conservatory at night. A 50 ft long room just off the dining room and our new state of the art kitchen. Guests can enjoy this space any time of the day or night. We set out goodies and a complimentary glass of wine every afternoon. Complimentary premium tea and coffee is always available.
The Greatroom in the new Huntsman Chase Guesthouse. The old cottage had to be torn down because of termite destruction and other issues, and the guesthouse that took its place is over twice as large with 3.5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, hardwood floors (1st floor) and full kitchen and laundry room and large deck and front porch. Breakfast at the main inn available every morning. Guesthouse is just behind the main inn. The drawing Room of Storybook Inn is a wonderful place to visit or read a book or play the baby grand piano that is kept in tune. Beautiful 31 foot spacious room with amazing detail. It is a refreshing room and not at all stuffy. 

We pay homage to both the North and the South in this border state Civil War era home. There is a painting of President Lincoln on one end and one of General Lee. There is also a Civil War chess set for our guests. Sit here and access your laptop via our high speed internet, or step into the library and sit at the desk or down chairs. 
So many visitors comment on the freshness of the rooms and the clean smell as opposed to musty, dusty and old. They also comment on how much light is in the home. 
Storybook Inn is a haven of peace and is geared to making our guests feel...well...like they have stepped into a Storybook...a very tastefully decorated one. One B&B critic stopped by recently and said, "This is the cleanest, best decorated B&B that I have seen."
Pictures don't begin the capture the beauty of the new state-of-the-art kitchen. We took existing space, saved existing exposed brick and built a 30X40 kitchen that is one of the nicest in the world. Literally. Guests love it and so does the staff. Preparing food and entertaining in this kitchen is a joy! Our newest main suite in the main house is nearly 900 sq ft of luxury. Our guests from Europe, Australia, and large cities across America have commented that "Somewhere in Time" is the nicest suite that they have stayed in, anywhere in the world. They write that in the in-room journals and passionately tell us this personally. It is our "premiere" honeymoon suite. King bed in main bedroom. Day bed in 19.5 long sitting room. HUGE bathroom with double air whirlpool, separate shower, his/hers marble vanities. Flat screen TV. And much more!
Exterior of Main house of the inn that dates back to 1830's. Second floor enlarged in 1890. Extreme makeover in 1930. "Extreme" renovation and additions in 2010.Stunning results! We are so proud of our new Huntsman Chase guesthouse! There is a spacious Greatroom w/floor to ceiling stone gas fireplace, custom bookshelves, Satellite large HD Flatscreen TV/VCR/DVD, full kitchen (fully equipped) lovely breakfast room with one of the most incredible views of the sunrise across the acres! Custom drapes throughout. Italian leather sofa & matching large roomy easy chairs. 3.5 bedrooms. 3.5 baths. Office. Wireless Internet free. Laundry room, 1st master w/large walk-in closet, separate shower & lovely air whirlpool tub. Upstairs the views are wonderful and the bedrooms spacious, 2 more full baths with air whirlpool, and professional decor lovely. Breakfast can still be enjoyed at the main house. Very private - ideal for honeymooners, anniversaries, families, those Keeneland bound, or for individuals who just want to get away from it all! 
This gem of a guesthouse is wonderful year round!
Beautiful "My Fair Lady Suite" with rose garden and pond/waterfalls view. (Falls lit at night.) The new 50 ft long Conservatory is where the guests take breakfast and one of the favorite places to enjoy quiet at other times.
New gas logs in the large Living Room fireplace invites guests to linger in this gorgeous room in the cooler months of  the year.
