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!
Outside in the beautiful courtyard inside the old brick wall. Outside entrance to conservatory. 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.
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 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!The new 50 ft long Conservatory is where the guests take breakfast and one of the favorite places to enjoy quiet at other times.
Right front side of Inn in Winter belies the fact of the warm, inviting interior.Summer, our wise, kind cat. She and her buddy Bootsy have their own house and are permitted in the Inn or Guesthouse. They are lovely animals and not pestiferous but help control the squirrels from being a total nuisance (eating through the garbage cans, etc.)
Casablanca: This wonderful guest suite and 2 others had carpet taken up and their original wood floors restored this year. Results? Gorgeous as you can see.The mantle in our beautiful dining hall.
The wonderful Gone With the Wind suite with newly restored hardwood floors. This is the main bedroom. Has large sitting room and private bath with dual rain shower heads.Year after year, because of our meticulous attention to cleanliness and commitment to detail, we receive 100% on our annual Health Department inspections.
Our gorgeous Empress China trees in the spring by our front entry.Beautiful Storybook weddings take place at the inn.
This California couple did not want to leave on this, their 3rd day at the inn. This is one example of the full breakfasts that we serve at the inn. Fresh squeezed orange juice in season [April thru Oct], filtered water, Lemon Poppyseed muffins, Eggs Benedict with REAL hollandaise sauce, Sauteed Russet potatoes, Fresh herbed asparagus, fresh ground organic coffee using filtered water, an assortment of teas and freshly prepared fruit with every meal...i.e...Strawberry Parfait, Fresh sweet melons, Fresh pineapple/Banana/Whipped cream parfait, etc.We are one of three Select Registry Inns in Kentucky.
