Our first B&B stay while we were touring the area as part of the Bourbon Trail. Nice and peaceful out in the country which was exactly what I wanted. Able to unplug and not have all the noise around you. I especially like the absence of a tv in the bedroom. Eddie was a wonderful host and we enjoyed our breakfasts with him as well as the stories we egged him to tell us. :)
Stay was fine. We arrived late; but Pam greeted us nicely. We didn't spend a great deal of time at the house, since we were out on Bourbon Trail. Pam was very nice and friendly. This was my first bed and breakfast experience. I was a little disappointed in the breakfast (casseroles both mornings, with frozen veggies, frozen potatoes), overall a good experience. Would be helpful if guests knew about dog at residence prior to booking.
This was our first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast, and it was a wonderful experience. The house, grounds, and rooms were adorable. Audrey was very welcoming, and her breakfasts were delightful. Rosie the Dog was great company and an added bonus to our stay!
My husband and I have stayed with Carolyn & Eddie at Springhill Plantation Winery B&B for 2 years in a row and plan to continue coming back. We stayed in the Merlot Room which has a king size bed and en suite bathroom. Carolyn & Eddie are very friendly and personable and there is a mini fridge with cold bottled water and there are always treats available--chocolate and hard candy, cake/cookies/brownies, etc. Breakfast each day is an event not to be missed and features different items each day (biscuits & gravy, fruit & yogurt, bacon/sausage/country ham, filled pancakes, bread pudding French toast with Bourbon syrup, breakfast pie with puff pastry, coffee cakes, hashbrown casserole, and Eddie's grits with a kick) :) The grounds are beautiful and you can relax with a drink in one of several swings, benches, or one of the patios
Easy to find, a great venue managed/owned by great people. We included some wine tasting, enjoyed discussions with the "Chef" and were really impressed with the up-to-date amenities in a historic home. Make sure you ask about the basement. Breakfast was top-notch. We'll be back.
We really enjoyed our stay at Springhill Winery B&B. The home is lovely and quiet. Our room was beautiful with a view of the countryside. Breakfast was delicious and especially made for us as we are vegetarians. Eddie dined with us and entertained us with stories of the house and civil war lore.
Hill House B&B was a wonderful experience: Our bedroom was beautiful and comfortable. A living room and access to the kitchen were perfect for feeling at home. Lisa Marie is a gracious and fun hostess, serving wonderful full breakfasts and available for any needs that arise. Loretto is within comfortable driving distance to Bardstown, Louisville and Lexington, it's almost next door to Maker's Mark (which provides a great tour) and other bourbon trail destinations.
This is a nice B&B, with a beautiful old home. Entering it, my wife and I felt cozy. We were welcomed, given a brief tour and overview and left to our own devices. The food was outstanding, the bread pudding with bourbon sauce was, easily, the best food we had. Considering, we had dinner on the Dinner Train, that's impressive. The price was right, the food was good, the room comfortable and the company friendly.
We had a wonderful stay at the Hill House while in town for bourbon tasting! The location was very convenient to the Makers Mark distillery. The rooms were very nice, the house was beautiful. We had full access to the house. Lisa Marie, owner, was extremely helpful, warm and a wonderful host. We would stay there again and recommend others do as well.
This was a beautiful, historic bed & breakfast. My family and I were on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail this past weekend and booked a night here. It was so charming and southern! The rooms were beautiful and you really feel at home, here. The family style breakfast in the morning is reason enough to stay! We will definitely return if we are back in this area.
Eddie and Carolyn were an absolute delight! They treated us like old friends, we're very knowledgeable on the area, and gave recommendations on how to enhance our vacation. The breakfast was by far the best I've ever had at a B&B! It was a full home-cooked meal with all of the Southern accoutrements. It was also eaten in a family style setting, so we got to know all of the other guests and actually made some travel partners in the process. The rooms were very quaint, but that's expected with an older home. If you're traveling though the Bourbon Trail, you MUST stay here for the breakfast alone!
A great location off the beaten path in the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Very relaxing and you definitely feel at home here. Lisa welcomes you and sits down to get to know you and your adventures. I am sure if you want to be left alone, she will do that as well. Large room and the bathroom is roomy. Great breakfast and you definitely do not ned lunch. Would recommend and stay here again.
My husband and I took an overnight getaway to celebrate our first 6 months of marriage by taking our first ride on a dinner train and stay in a B & B for the first time. We were being satisfied with the experience. The only thing that might need mentioning is that the bathroom in our room was not completely enclosed. There's a half a wall hiding the toilet but it's not completely surrounded or enclosed. That didn't bother us but just a heads up. Overall the stay was amazing. Perfect temperature in the room, very spacious and the treats provided were delicious as was the amazing breakfast. Wonderful experience and we'll be returning.
Loved our stay at the Hill House. Lisa Marie is awesome. Had to leave prior to breakfast but the other guests raved about her meals. Only disappointment was not being able to get the Jacuzzi to work (one of the reasons to go with that room.
I just returned from a weekend stay with my husband and two more couples that joined us to celebrate a big birthday. We toured some bourbon distilleries while in the area. Our experience at the Historic Maple Hill Manor was wonderful. The inn keepers, Robert and Colleen, were delightful. The food was beautiful and delicious. All of my group were very happy we chose to stay at the Manor. We hope to return someday!
We really enjoyed our stay. First things first: the breakfasts are out of this world. She served fruit cups, hot pastries, and creative meat and egg recipes on each of our three mornings. She really puts a lot of effort in and the result is delicious. We stayed in the yellow room. It is spacious and the mattress is comfortable. The antique décor throughout the house is attractive. The house is two blocks off the center of town so we left our car parked much of the time and walked. I wish we could have stayed longer.
This is a great place to stay, especially if you are doing the bourbon trail. The owner is knowledgeable about the area and great to talk with. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is awesome.
While Lisa was at an appointment we were able to enter the BB and get settled. Once she came back we were greeted and welcomed, but already felt that as well. The breakfast and conversation was wonderful. The room was comfortable and we could spread out to the dining room to use our laptops with the TV news in the background. Just like home. Front Porch was great to sit in the sun, and the back patio is comfortable as well.
I've not personally ever had the experience of reading about a place, getting there, and finding it to meet, let alone exceed, my expectations until I stayed at Maple Hill Manor. Usually descriptions indulge in hyperbole or the two best photos hide the less-than-elegant reality. Not the case here. This is the best BnB - ever. It's clean and plush, the innkeepers are consistently gracious, and the food is extraordinary. There really wasn't anything I wished had been different.
Maple Hill Manor was a perfect getaway. The house was beautiful and the farm was like a dream. The service was exceptional and the food was out of this world! I look forward to planning another trip down there very soon!
We really enjoyed our stay at the Hill House. Lisa was a very good hostess and she made us feel welcome and comfortable. She made very good recommendations of places to go to eat for dinner and gave us some other info about the area that we might want to see. The room was comfortable and had all the amenities we needed. The only reason I gave the room one less star was our bathroom was outside the room. However, robes were provided and we didn't have to share the bathroom, so it worked out fine. The breakfast was excellent and very filling. We would definitely stay again if we were in the area.
