The Hill House B & B is the perfect place to stay when in Loretto, KY. The owner was very accommodating and friendly through the whole process. My only less-than-perfect mark would be for the pee mats that her dog apparently urinates on by the front door, but really that's nit-picky. Overall our stay was fabulous, the rooms were homey and spacious, and the breakfast was delicious. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
We are a group of 6 ladies who have been doing a weekend away together for 24 years. We have stayed at many different venues over the years. The winery was one of best experiences. From Carolyn and Eddie, the inn keepers and owners , who could have not have been more interesting, to the amazing breakfast and the over whelming hospitality. We learned the history of the house and enjoyed rooms that were decorated to a tee. I can speak for all if us..,,we loved it. Thanks for a great time...Sue H.
This place exceeded our expectations - not knowing since it was our first B&B stay (but won't be the last after this visit). My husband and are now empty nesters with our two kids off at UK, we decided to do the bourbon trail and found ourselves with booking a little splurge for the trip (I'm a very thrifty person using Hotwire and Orbitz to save on hotels). This experience has made us want to do this monthly if not bimonthly. The InnKeeper Adam and the comforts in the room was great. Pros: The presentation and history from Adam was very very nice. The Alpaca shop and prices great. Adam made himself very accessible the entire stay. Adam was very interactive with the guest. The bedding was outstanding (we are use to a king bed so a queen was challenging) and I didn't want to leave the bed. Cons: DVD - upgrade to Blue Ray (some had blue ray some did not), Water pressure in sink, TV very small, better lighting at entrance, breakfast was good (a little cold) but I expected mind-blowing based on the reviews and awards.
Eddie met us at the door and was most helpful and gracious. We shared a delicious and varied breakfast with the other guests and our delightful host. The room(Rose) was large and comfortably appointed except for the lack of a door to separate the bath from the room. Our change of arrival date and (slightly) late arrival were cheerily accommodated. Thanks for a relaxing and memorable overnight break in our travels.
Our stay was fantastic. Right from the minute we walked in the door, Lisa Marie was there to greet us and make us feel immediately at home. Our room was beautifully decorated and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the en-suite bathroom was clean and roomy. Lisa Marie works with all guests and comes up with a breakfast menu that works for everyone. The food is great and the service is outstanding. This is the most friendly B&B we have ever had the pleasure of staying. We highly recommend the Hill House B&B.
Charming B&B with so much atmosphere. The building, inside and out, was exquisite. We stayed four nights in the Cabernet Suite. The bed was incredible and provided a good night's sleep. Eddie and Carolyn were both knowledgeable and entertaining. The breakfasts were over the moon, both delicious and ample. We were able to skip lunch! So much to do in this area, we will need to return and the location was perfect for touring the sites.
had a group of eight from Pennsylvania. occupied the whole house. The breakfasts served as two meals as we were filled up thru lunch. Large back patio that allowed for a nice propane/heater/fire that we all sat around in the evening and enjoyed our newly purchased distilled spirits. Lisa Marie offers red/white wine in the afternoon that we gladly accepted over the tea!
My husband and I spend one night here while visiting part of the bourbon industry in Kentucky. I am sorry it was only one night! The house is clean and comfortable. We were in the Oak Room, with a whirlpool tub and a nice amount of room. However, we spent most of our time downstairs in the parlor. Lisa Marie (the owner/innkeeper) was welcoming and very friendly. We had wine in the evening and a delicious breakfast in the morning, and really enjoyed chatting with her. As an additional perk there was a "loaner" dog! Seriously, her tiny dog Rudy was very friendly and affectionate. I would definitely recommend this Inn!
This historic mansion is a magnificent place to stay. Eddie and Carolyn are wonderful hosts. We had the beautifully furnished Chardonnay Suite for one night, and slept great! Springhill is located within an easy drive of the local landmarks, including the Bourbon Trail, Bardstown, and the Old Kentucky Home park. Eddie not only regaled us with the history of the mansion and the area at breakfast, but gave us extremely useful pointers on where to go and what to see. He also treated us to an informative wine tasting (he grows his own grapes and makes his own wines) before we left in the morning. And the breakfast is not to be missed! Definitely a spot to return to.
Lisa was simply amazing, she made us feel right at home. We weren't exactly sure what to expect going into our first bed and breakfast but it was wonderful. Overall great experience, no major complaints.
Lisa Marie was an exceptional host. The food was terrific, and her recommendations excellent. If your on the Bourbon Trail, this is a great place to stay as it is quite close to several distilleries (Makers Mark, Heaven Hill, and Willett). Would recommend upgrading TVs to flat screens as several football games on the evening we stayed. Oak room was very comfortable.
This place is really nice!! The house is beautiful and full of history! The country breakfast was YUMMY!!!, and during breakfast the hosts told us all about the renovations to the house as well as the history of the house. The winery has awesome wine too!! The rooms were very nice. My only negative comment is that although each bedroom has its own bathroom, there is no door at the bathroom, so there is really no privacy for showering or "bathroom needs". Everything else was awesome!!
What a wonderful experience. The old house is beautifully restored and updated to inlcude a private bath in the room. Breakfast was as good as any restaurant I've been to, and the conversation with Eddie and Caroline was informative and fascinating. Some delicious wnes as well, came home with four bottles. If you are visiting the Bardstown area or need an overnight stay on the Bourbon Trail, THIS is the place you should stop.
My husband and I stayed for our Anniversary weekend. It was more beautiful than the pictures online and the food was outstanding. We stayed in the Stephen Foster Room, which has a jacuzzi tub. The room was large and very romantic. The sheets were wonderful and the bed was very comfortable. We really had no complaints that would keep us from returning. The 2 items that did not exceed our expectations were that the grounds clearly needed some attention and the private bath attached to the room was extremely small.
My stay at the Bourbon Manor was absolutely fantastic! The rooms were so beautiful and rich with history. The service was great as well, Todd was very accommodating, attentive and genuinely cared about making our experience memorable. Thank you, Todd!!
