My wife and I stayed at the Hill House while on a cross country motorcycle trip. We spent the night in the Oak Room and the jacuzzi tub was a great way to relax. Close to Makers Mark and other stops on the Bourbon Tour.
My husband and I enjoyed two nights in the Hunter Room. It is on the ground floor near the entrance. The room was comfortable and met our needs. When we returned to our room later in the day, there were clean towels and the bed was made. We were not disturbed by visitors coming and going. The location of the B&B makes it easy to get to local attractions and restaurants. However, the traffic on Stephen Foster was constantly busy and loud. (My only complaint) Audrey is a gem! She was attentive to our needs and is a fabulous cook! She suggested and then arranged for us to use the shuttle to the Stephen Foster amphitheater. We were so glad we didn't have to navigate the traffic! We enjoyed two fabulous meals, one inside and one outside on the deck. The tables were set beautifully. Attention to small details, such as edible flowers and mint topping our fruit cups, was an added bonus! The grounds and koi ponds were relaxing. We enjoyed our stay!
What defines a perfect stay at a bed and breakfast? A warm and inviting host, clean and comfortable accommodations, a safe and convenient location and a truly awe inspiring breakfast. If you’re in Loretto KY, either on the Bourbon Trail or passing through, a stay at the Hill House Bed & Breakfast is a must. Lisa Marie is a wonderful hostess who truly defines the perfect bed & breakfast experience.
My wife and I celebrated our 25th Anniversary at Springhill Winery and Plantation Bed and Breakfast. The night, room and our hosts were perfect. I recommend this venue for any couple looking for a romantic getaway. Breakfast was over the top! If you are reading this review trying to make a booking decision...BOOK IT. You won't be disappointed.
We stayed here in Loretta because it was close to the Bourbon Trail and the owner kindly agreed to accept a small dog. We had a grand time. The room was well appointed and the breakfasts were exceptional. Lisa Marie also put out Happy Hour with wine and cheese. There was a comfortable common room to relaxing and visiting with other guests. They had a dog named Rudy Jame s who was cute as a bug and well behaved. Lovely gardens and outside patio and a little park nearby.
Very well appointed B&B. Spacious rooms, comfortable and quaint. Bathroom was clean and modern while maintaining the historic charm. Our room was directly above the bourbon bar but noise was not an issue. Very handy fridge, sink, and microwave in our room with prepared breakfast (Danish, yougurt, orange juice, mixed fruit, and coffee). Plush bathrobes available for the short walk to the bath. Bed was very comfortable, although I might have preferred the king size in the other suite. With oversized chairs and a nice sofa, seating was relaxed and plentiful. My only suggestion for improvement would be to have some sort of dishes or paper plates to have for breakfast. The bartender (Tom) in the bourbon bar as well as the person in the adjacent gift shop at ground level were very friendly and helpful. The innkeepers (Dee Dee and Howard) are very gracious and anxious to ensure a pleasant stay. Ernie & Jennifer Jones / Newburgh, Indiana
The Hill House is a wonderful B&B minutes from the Makers Mark distillery. Lisa Marie made us feel very much at home. Our room was lovely, and she served up a fabulous breakfast each morning. We soon became friends and are already making plans for a return trip.
Location, views, amenities, room, linens were all over far greater than anticipated. The bed slept divinely, the Sunday breakfast was a southern girl's dream. All the lodgers were friendly; the hosts were outstanding in their hospitality, their warmth and their personalities. I loved the stories and would enjoy hearing so many more! My stay was too short, and we went to a show the night before so we were unable to sit with everyone in the evening, but the grounds are absolutely spectacular and the morning sun coming in our window in the morning was a sight to behold. Truly, a remarkable find and I do hope to be staying here again soon. I will be telling all I know about this lovely place and hope to be sending some people to this home very soon.
Eddie and Carolyn were fabulous hosts, the house was nothing short of magnificent, and the food was over-the-top great! And the location is perfect for visiting Bardstown, cute as can be, but also convenient for EVERY place on the Bourbon Trail, and only 45 minutes from Buffalo Trace. I'll try to return!
The highlight of the stay was the superb breakfast served by the owners themselves. Our interaction with them and the story about the house was both interesting and entertaining. The wine tastings (included) are a nice touch but you have to arrive before the tasting room closes.
We stayed here while taking a mini vacation with friends. We had been sampling on the bourbon trail and also enjoyed a couple wineries including this one in the area over a couple of days. The wine tasting area is on the small side, but very nice. Our server was new, but very nice also. The Inn is beautiful. They have done a wonderful job restoring the home. Still a couple rooms to go. They served and joined us for a huge, delicious breakfast. The owner told us stories about the history of the home and the restoration process. You can tell they love it! The only drawback we had with it was the bathrooms. Although ours was in our room, it is an open concept and not private. For one night, we worked it out and it wasn't too much of an issue. It's hard to work plumbing in old homes and you've got to appreciate what you can get. It was very nice and inviting overall.
Our experience was very nice, it would have been better if the room we stayed in had not had an adjoining door with another room. Next time we will pick a different room. Good overall experience though.
In a word our stay was wonderful! Audrey was a true artist with the amazing breakfasts she made. You never left hungry or disappointed. As soon as you walked in the door you felt the warmth and peacefulness of the place as if it was saying welcome home. Audrey added to it by her warm and caring personality. The room we stayed in was perfect for our belated honeymoon. It was beautiful! Audrey even had a rose waiting for us to celebrate the occasion. I could not say enough about how much we enjoyed staying at the Red Rose Inn in the beautiful town of Bardstown KY, and I would definitely recommend this place to all who read this.
Breakfast each morning was fantastic, not only the food itself, but the company as well. The owners had so much knowledge and information about the history of the Plantation, it was fascinating. The location is central to everything that the Bourbon trail has to offer, and just a quick drive up to Louisville. The stay was fantastic, and I look forward to our next trip!
Hill House is a lovely Bed& Breakfast , obviously run by a thoughtful an carding person . Even though our party stayed one night and woke to a Delicious breakfast! I would definitely encourage others to Stay at the Hill House !
This is an excellent B&B only a block from the center of town and several places to eat or shop. Beautiful grounds, two koi ponds, an expansive patio and a covered front porch, and of course rose bushes. We had a wonderful and huge breakfast of apple fritter in the skillet, fresh fruit cup, sausage, OJ and coffee, and banana bread. Check-in included chocolate chip cookies. The California King poster bed in the Hunt room was very comfortable. The house is about 180 years old, but in great shape, modern fixtures and power, air, wi-fi, cable, etc. We would stay there again. And of course, Rosie the tiny, big-eyed spaniel was a most endearing critter. Well behaved and quiet, loves to have her chin scratched any time.
We had a wonderful stay.. Lisa Marie has a gift of hospitality and made us feel welcome the moment we walked in the door. The delicious breakfasts were beyond expectations. Lisa Marie also gave us great recommendations to the local sites and amazing restaurants.. We would so stay there again if in the area!!
My wife and I were traveling through Kentucky and wanted to be somewhere on the Burbon Trail. The Hill House was the perfect place being centrally located and Lisa Marie was the perfect host. The accomidations were clean and we felt right at home. Lisa Marie was friendly, knowledagable, and able to direct us to an incrdible steak house for dinner which was not far away. And in the morning we were greated with the aroma of coffee and a breakfast which far surpassed any served in a resturaunt. Our only regrett was we only had one night. We will be back.
