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.
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.
