My husband and I stayed at the Springhill Winery Plantation Bed and Breakfast as part of our 10 year anniversary. The house is very clean and fabulous - many rooms to choose from. A full spread breakfast was served during our entire stay and either Eddie or Carolyn sat with us and told stories about the plantation which was very intriguing. We will definitely stay there again next time we are in the area. Tammy
What a lovely stay in the heart of the Bourbon Trail. Lisa Marie was a gracious and generous innkeeper/hostess. Just 3 miles from Maker's Mark Distillery, and close to The Cooperage, this was a comfortable, pleasant home which has been restored from the 1800's. Breakfast was delicious and when we left we felt as if we were a part of the family.
Unless you have experienced some time with Eddie and Carolyn, you may not really understand why there are so many positive reviews of the Springhill Plantation B & B involving specific mention of these owners/hosts.Nicely restored and renovated, this antebellum plantation home also has had a very interesting history. Accommodations consist of two larger rooms with King beds with several other smaller rooms with queen or double beds.Very nice public rooms, including a TV room.. No separate TV's in bedrooms - but who needs a TV when you stay here! Rooms are appropriately furnished and decorated. The beds were quite comfortable. Very quiet in the evening. Easy drive to Bardstown and a number of bourbon distilleries near by. Extensive breakfast. But the thing that separates this B&B apart apart from any other we have ever experienced are the stories and interactions of our hosts. If you enjoy charming Southern hospitality delivered with witty, humorous conversation, then book your room here (make sure Eddie & Carolyn will be there) and thank me after your visit! If you prefer modern, sleek, luxurious accommodations, then this will not be for you. While we like to be spoiled once in a while by staying in a luxury resort, we would take an evening with Eddie and Carolyn over any luxury hotel. I can't remember much about a number of five star(or higher) hotels that we have stayed at, but I will always remember our stay at Springhill with Eddie and Carolyn. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g39205-d644595-r420371306-Springhill_Winery_Plantation_Bed_n_Breakfast-Bloomfield_Kentucky.html#
We enjoyed our stay and Eddie and Carolyn have a wonderful B &B. We stayed in the Merlot room and it was Very clean. They prepared a most amazing breakfast. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
My fiancé and I visited Loretto, Kentucky over Labor Day weekend hoping to explore the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. We choose The Hill House based on it's proximity to Maker's Mark; little did we know it was quite a trek to the other distilleries on the trail. However, we wouldn't have changed a thing! Upon our arrival we immediately felt like we had known Lisa Maria much longer than just a few minutes and fell in love with our room and the comfort of the B&B. Her breakfasts we amazing and we enjoyed sitting in the living room and relaxing after a day of exploring. We even stayed an extra day (partly to enjoy the distilleries, partly for one more night of comfort!)! We are already planning our next trip to the Trail, and more importantly, The Hill House!!
Although we were only able to spend one night it was most enjoyable. The house is an old home and is believed to have been constructed in the 1860s that has been refurbished. Our room was very clean, it had plenty of room, and the windows made it very bright and airy. The bathroom was more than adequate. The innkeeper made us feel right at home the minute we came in the door. Breakfast was delicious. The whole environment was very inviting. We would definitely stay there again!
September in Kentucky and in Loretto was gorgeous and the Hill House was one of our favorite places along the way! We were on our way to tour Maker's Mark Distillery (only 3 miles from Hill House) and this was the perfect home base for touring even more of the many destinations along the Bourbon Trail. Lisa Marie was a gracious innkeeper and was ready to help us enjoy our stay in Kentucky in every way. The rooms are lovely and the breakfasts delicious. We left feeling a part of the family and look forward to another visit!
We found every aspect of our B&B experience exceptional. The house is beautifully appointed, blending modern functionality with historic charm. The staff was warm and welcoming, the food scrumptious and well presented, and we loved the presence of the family pets. We were made to feel at home immediately.
Could not have accidentally found a more charming place to stay! Loved the hosts, breakfast and the charming plantation. Eddie and Carolyn regaled us all with their humorous history of the locale and back and forth banter. They obviously love what they do and are eager to share with their guests. We hated to leave! Have already shared the experience with everyone we know!
Found this excellent B&B on-line, booked and stayed for 4 nights. This is a beautiful Inn spacious rooms and well furnished decor. Right in the heart of Bardstown with easy access to all areas of this stunning little town. Audrey, the owner, is a treasure and a fabulous cook to boot. She made us very welcome and our whole stay was something we will cherish forever. Rosie, her wee King Charles spaniel, was cute and much fun. Overall, our stay in Bardstown was made complete by the Red Rose Inn experience. Many thanks Audrey. Alex and Roseanna Hood Bill and Brenda Hilson Scotland UK
Beautiful rooms that take you back in time. Breakfast was superb! The owners have wonderful historical knowledge that they share on the background of the B & B. To be able to go wine tasting as well as a wonderful bonus and the wines were very good!
We were so impressed with our first stay six months ago that we came back for another two nights recently. We enjoy the hosts company, and there is nothing like the breakfasts that she prepares. She is an artist in the kitchen and it is delicious. The Inn is located just two blocks east of the center of town in a historic neighborhood. Her home is a delightful trip into history with various knick knacks and period furniture. If we get a chance we will stay there a third time.
This was our first trip to Bardstown and staying at the Red Rose made it perfect. Audrey was the perfect hostess. The room was beautiful. The food was exceptional. Most everything we wanted to do was within walking distance from the house. Would definitely stay here again the next time we visit.
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.
