We used tis bnb as our home base while we visited area attractions. Very quiet. Delicious breakfasts. No need for lunch! Carolyn was very friendly and made you feel like you have known her forever
I had a great time at Red Rose Inn. The Hostess was kind and her dog was cute! I was in the Magnolia Room and it was nice and clean. In the backyard there is a hot tub and a couple of koi ponds. It's a short walk to Talbott Tavern and Harrison Smith House from the Inn. (I had dinner at Harrison Smith House and it was a great meal!) And you can easily walk around the Historic Bardstown District with all of the shops. Breakfast in the morning was big and delicious! I had a great time overall at Red Rose Inn!
We enjoyed our first stay here! The room was clean and cozy, and the breakfast was fabulous! Lisa Marie is a wonderful host. We enjoyed the wine "happy hour" in the evenings and simply sitting in the living area to relax and read. Woyld have liked to have coffee out out earlier in the morning for those who are early risers, however it was available at breakfast. Another suggestion would be to have bottled water and a few snacks available for guests throughout the day. We spent most of our time in Bardstown, so it was a bit of a drive into town and back each time, but otherwise, we loved it and would definitely consider staying again!
Stayed at Springhill in late July 2016. Wine was made with care and yielded some good results. Eddie is happy to share his knowledge with interested "winers." Carolyn puts out a spectacular breakfast spread-the best I've ever had at a B&B! The house is charmingly historic and the rooms are very spacious and well-appointed. Guests should be aware that, although the rooms have bathrooms, they are separated from the living area only by half walls with no doors. If bathroom privacy is not important to you this will be no problem.
We had a marvelous stay in the Red Rose Inn. We were able to walk to great restaurants, pubs, shops. Also walked to the Civil War Museum, thanks to our host's suggestion. Audrey is a lovely host and served a delightful breakfast that got us through to dinner! She also offers snacks, drinks, and cookies. Really enjoyed talking with her. The Inn is being sold but I hope new owners continue the tradition of great hospitality. Thanks Audrey and best wishes!
Lisa Marie and her assistant, Gina, are wonderful hosts. The accommodations were great and the breakfasts were fabulous! We had a special request that was not only met, but exceeded. What service! Each of the two mornings, breakfst was wonderful and after a brief time, Lisa Marie would come and visit with guests. This happened in the evening as well with either Lisa Marie, the owner, and/or, the assistant, Gina. Both ladies are very welcoming and accommodating. I would highly recommend this B & B.
We stayed overnight at the Springhill Winery and B an B. Everything was top notch. From the cleanliness to the small details, to the country breakfast in the morning. Ed and Carolyn were wonderful hosts. I would definitely go back!
Wow - I don’t know if I can put into words what an amazing experience we had at the Inn. It began the moment we drove up the drive, past the pastures with grazing Alpaca’s and Llamas, to the Manor. I had goose bumps because it was so lovely and majestic and yet felt like “home”. We were welcomed by Donna who was like an amiable house mother who wanted to make sure our every need was met. We toured all the suites and decided who would sleep where - no arguments as each room seemed to be perfect for certain people. Then we changed for the Rehearsal and Dinner in Danville. When we returned we hung out talking, singing, playing the piano, having hot cocoa and tea - all the while Donna was in the background at the ready to answer a question or help us find what we needed. One of the bridesmaids was making a small wedding cake and needed to use the kitchen - Donna helped her and let her use her kitchen with such openness. She is the quintessential innkeeper - available to help, but not intrusive. By the time we left we felt like she was a part of the family:) The smartest thing was renting the entire Inn for the night - made it so special for my daughter and her friends on the night before her wedding. It made the celebration weekend so much more memorable and we will always cherish your Inn as a the place the wedding began. We had a scrumptious, healthy breakfast which kept us all going till the wedding dinner and then the photographer and makeup and hair stylist arrived. We got ready in a storybook setting and now have some lovely pictures of my daughter and her bridal party in your amazing grounds and manor. I honestly cannot imagine anywhere else better to have this experience. As Mother-of-the-Bride, having Donna as my sidekick and helper was so valuable - not just for all she did, but for her words of encouragement and desire to share in my joy:)
This was the perfect place for a mother/daughter get away. We stayed in the Merlot Suite which had plenty of room and a peaceful view from the front of this historic home. The family style breakfast both mornings was delicious!!! We enjoyed Eddie's stories of this historic home and Carolyn was generous with sharing her recipes. The wine tasting was fun and interesting and resulted in several purchases from their wine gift shop. Definitely, a B&B & winery I hope to visit again!
The location is perfect for touring the Bourbon Trail. We met other travelers that had the same idea and enjoyed swapping stories of our experiences on the trail. Our suite was extremely comfortable, the common areas were very clean and attractive. The patio area was delightful and of course breakfast was tasty and plentiful.
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.
