We had a lovely one-night stay here to attend a concert at the KFC Yum center in Louisville. With the excellent directions from Linda we drove just a few blocks and the over the bridge and we were AT the Center! Our room was very comfortable and clean, and we slept well. It was an interesting B&B as downstairs it is also an antique store! Price was very reasonable and we would stay again.
This bed and breakfast was in a great location! We were able to take an Uber to 4th street in Louisville for around $6.00. The room was nice, but it was a bit strange that the toilet was just separated from the rest of the room by a partition. Luckily, there was no one else staying, so we were able to use the main restroom on the same floor. She made a VERY good breakfast - eggs benedict for us. I had never had it before, but I will order it again and use hers as a comparison! I would recommend this bed and breakfast if you're staying in the area!
Linda was willing to serve us, even when we had unusual circumstances. She is in a nice position from which you can walk to restaurants and to the river, and her home is next to the new walking bridge to cross the river into Louisville. She was also willing to host my teen daughters, which many hosts will not board children. Linda had concern to meet our dietary desires for breakfast.
We quite enjoyed our stay during Kentucky Derby days, and the owners even drove us across the river and down to Churchill Downs on both days of the Derby weekend. The breakfasts in the mornings were delicious, with plenty of food for all. And suggestions of other sights to see while we were in the area were well appreciated.
It is a great getaway. It is right at the end of a soon to be completed beautiful park and walkway bridge over to Ohio river to Louisville. It is very convenient to many restaurants, a serene walk along the Ohio river, and interstate 65.
Such a lovely place! The Old Bridge Inn is perfectly located 15 feet from a brand new footbridge (an easy stroll right into the heart of Louisville) and a block from downtown Jeffersonville, full of great shops and restaurants. The owner is incredibly welcoming and accommodating, not to mention friendly! Wonderful stay! Highly recommend!
The house was beautifully decorated and well kept. The food was very good and in the traditional southern style. Linda adapted to our dietary needs without missing a beat. The location is superb, with walking access to most anything you could need or want. We had a wonderful stay. Recommended!
We recently stayed at the Old Bridge Inn so that the runner in the family could take part in the Louisville 1/2 Marathon. Awesome thing was that the runner could walk to the start line (less than 2 miles) and not hassle with parking and the traffic jams. Wife could sleep in and then get a wonderful breakfast before going to the finish area. Linda was also very gracious to allow a late check-out so the sweaty runner could shower before leaving on the 3-hr trip home. Very nice accommodations, quiet, and a much better value than local hotels. Runners check this place out for the Derby Festival marathon in the spring or the 1/2 marathon in the fall. The pedestrian bridge entrance for the Indiana side is just across the street from the Inn and will be open in the spring (2014)
My girlfriend and I recently stayed at the Inn to while attending a freinds wedding. The house is charming and warm, you'll feel at home home the minute you walk in. Linda is eager to assist any wants or needs you may have, and she's a great cook to boot! For a well priced retreat, you can't do better than the Old Bridge Inn.
The Old Bridge Inn was a lovely site for our girls weekend. The River Room was perfect and Linda was very friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast as well. Great location for visiting Louisville. I would highly recommend it and plan to return in the future myself.
I stayed here while attending a conference at the convention center in Louisville. The landscaping and decor are beautiful. Elegant and comfortable. Very, very clean, which I appreciated. The sheets were luxurious. I walked over the bridge, but I am a walker. There is a cool interpretive center and fossil gorge closeby. Linda is very concerned about taking care of her guests. She knows she needs to do something about the front door that tends to stick with humidity. Not an unusual problem with an historic property. I would definitely stay there if in the area again.
The room was nice and the bed was comfortable. We were upgraded the room bc it was our wedding night but we unfortunately did not get to use the tub. Some other patron was there to let us in not the keeper. Breakfast was held til a little later for us which we really appreciated. Overall the stay was good.
The hostess came out in the rain to give me an umbrella to get into the house during a thunderstorm. She gave me a great dinner recommendation, then made a trip to the bakery in the morning so that I could have a cinnamon roll along with the breakfast she made for me. Would definitely return.
Our stay was very nice and the people were great. The room was appropriate for the price but the breakfast could have been better. Since it is a bed and breakfast, I was expecting a more filling meal. One recommendation for the owner is to fix the front door, which was very difficult to shut and thus difficult to lock. Overall, I would rate this B&B a B.
The value of this Bed and Breakfast is outstanding. We payed not much more than we would have to stay at a Super 8, but the Old Bridge Inn was, of course, a much better deal: It was clean. It was within a short walking distance to Jeffersonville shops and restaurants by the river, and only a quick drive across the river to downtown Louisville. The parlor and dining room are particularly lovely: We made use of the DVD collection downstairs and enjoyed the common areas. Breakfast was delicious, and our hostess prepared a proper English teatime for us both mornings: Complete with our own individual cups, saucers, teapots, and tea cozies for the pots. Our hostess was friendly and willing to chat, but not overbearing, and she knew a lot about the history of the house and the town. This really is a gem!
We're looking forward to our next visit. A fantastic pedestrian/bicycle bridge will be completed in 2013 that begins a stone's throw from this B&B's front door and crosses over the river into Louisville.While enjoying a leisurely breakfast our hostess fascinated us with the home's history and then we had a lively current events conversation with a fellow guest. Right up our alley!
Great hostess, kept us well fed and well informed for our first time in that area. Loved the lunch cruise on the historic paddle wheeler, touring the St Louis Slugger facility, eating and drinking at the ballpark and touring Churchill Downs, but most of all looking an amazing amount of 200 million year old fossils in the Ohio Fall Park, most of whom we saw when scuba diving all over the world!
This B&B is definitely "Old" - from a stained glass entrance door to many antiques. However, the inn also offers some nice "New" features such as flat screen TV's and cable in the rooms. The innkeeper, Linda, is very nice and a great cook. The breakfasts were very filling.
