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 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! :)
