My hubby and I stayed here a couple nights and it was fantastic! Don's food is amazing, as is his conversation. The home is stunning, the bed is spacious and comfy, and of course you can't go wrong with a jacuzzi. Mammoth Cave is only about 30 minutes away. Unfortunately the skies were cloudy when we were there so we couldn't use the observatory. I would love to go back someday to do that though!

We stayed here for 5 nights for our honeymoon, and the experience was amazing. The room was spacious and gorgeous with a jacuzzi tub and giant bed. Don was a wonderful host who made delicious breakfasts, had interesting conversations, but also knew when to let us have our space. Couldn't recommend more highly.

This place was fantastic! The owner built the entire home by hand from trees taken from his land. He provides great company, is very accomodating, and makes great food. The area is remote and is a great location to get away from it all. There is great hiking and caving nearby. I would love to be able to go back.

The house is gorgeous and Don is a great host. The whole house was spotless and was very homelike. Breakfast was great good variety. The location made it feel more like a getaway. Definitely worth every penny and we are looking forward to stopping by again someday.

Don was beyond friendly in accommodating me and my girlfriend during our Deep South road trip. After staying with him on the first night of our trip, we ended up returning three weeks later for another two nights at the very end (we've never done that before). The room is spacious and comfortable (it includes a Jacuzzi) and a great value. Don gladly shares stories of how he built the house with his own hands and his past experiences constructing telescopes. Unfortunately, weather did not permit us to visit the observatory. We liked the location because it was very quiet, but still half an hour from Mammoth Cave National Park and the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. There are also great kayaking options nearby. We were treated to a generous breakfast (my girlfriend doesn't eat eggs and bacon - and she loved them here) and ended up cooking supper together with the host. Highly recommended - five stars all the way!

My wife and I stayed at theTwin Oaks B & B. Don was exteremely accomodating and friendly. In the evening we had some great conversations with him. You are close to Mammoth Cave as well as other activities.

My beau and I stayed there for my birthday a year or so ago. Don is a wonderfully down to earth host with great tales of his travels around the world. The property is huge, peaceful and beautiful. The home, is rustic, comfortable and pure art. Don cleared the property himself and used the lumber to build the home. The architecture was just gorgeous. Don cooked a great breakfast as well and offered the kitchen to cook what we wanted through the day and Sophie was a sweetheart. While some BandB's are very uptight and can make a stay feel uncomfortable, you will be completely relaxed here. There is a jacuzzi tub that is big enough for two and a very large room. Everything was very clean. I am writing this review so late because I was just thinking of how much I would like to go back here and wanted to book a weekend again.

My husband and I just spent our first weekend at Twin Oaks and cannot wait to return! Don is THE perfect host! His catered guacamole is THE best I have ever had! VERY FRESH and I am a picky eater! We LOVED staying at Twin Oaks and plan to return numerous times, just to visit Don, Sophie (his small dog) and the B&B! The rooms are spacious and elegantly decorated. We stayed in the suite upstairs, all I can say is WOW! It was so relaxing and peaceful! Don is working on an observatory to stargaze! We look forward (cant wait!) to return! This is the perfect B&B! Very romantic, elegantly and lovingly built by Don with the highest quality of materials. Amazing detail and tucked away in the woods! We have traveled the world and can truly state with authority, this B&B is a rare gem.... simply perfect! This is the secret garden you dream of! You desire to keep it to yourself and cannot wait to return time and again. You will be filled with joy from the moment you step onto the property! Don is the perfect host! :)

My mother,sister and I had a delightful stay. Don's home is beautiful and guests have access to much of the house. The room was spacious and we reveled in the fact that were not tripping over each other. He has very romantic details which would be nice for newlyweds or a any couple. The home is off the beaten track but don't let that deter you. Don makes a good breakfast but he needs to offer some healthy options such as fruit or yogurt. All in all I would return and urge others to stay in this home.

We just got back from the Twin Oaks Observatory Bed & Breakfast and had a great time. Don was an excellent host. The upstairs suite looked amazing but we spent 2 nights in the downstairs room. It was clean and slept great. Both the property and the room were quiet. Breakfast was amazing.
