Tom and Mary Austin are superior in their desire to make you feel at home. Lavish breakfasts, magazine quality, decorating, and many extras are what make this B&B special.

My husband and I had some work being done in our home, so we decided to try one of the local B&Bs here in Louisville. We landed at Austin's Inn Place for our first ever B&B stay. It was fabulous! Tom and Mary are wonderful people, the two victorian era homes are beautifully kept, and breakfast was absolutely the best! We can't wait to do it again!

The 2 Victorians built in the 1880's has housed some local legends. The hosts were gracious, attentive and informed, as well as more than happy to give us a tour through their antique filled 3 storied homes. Breakfast was a well prepared and presented, with appropriate setting and ambiance, when we chose to wake. Spinach and portabello omelette with home fries, country ham, biscuits, et al. Highly recommended as an alternative to a nicer hotel.

My wife and I had our first B&B experience at Austin's Inn, Absolutely wonderful! Mr and Mrs Austin mad us feel very much at home. Our room was very nice, spacious, and clean. We were in town to visit the St.James art fair which was a few blocks away. Breakfast both mornings was simply delightful! A 5 star Inn!

We stayed at Austin's Inn Place in September 2012, It was our first stay at a Bed & Breakfast and the experience was outstanding. Mary and Tom Austin were exceptional hosts and made us feel completely at home. There was plenty of room to relax with friends who were also staying there. The breakfasts that Mary prepared for us were tasty and plentiful. All in all it was a great experience and we would definitely stay again should our travels take us to Louisville.

I was trying to book a nice place for my wedding night, and I couldn't seem to find a single room in all of Louisville that had a jacuzzi in it! A family member found this place and booked it for us. Honestly, I didn't know what to expect. This place is amazing. The rooms and premise were decorated in a breathtaking Victorian style, and the room we stayed in had every amenity you could imagine (There was even a bidet, I've never used one so I was too unsure to use it!). The jacuzzi was wonderful and really helped my wife and I relax after a long, exhausting day. The bed was very comfortable and made me hate my mattress at home even more. Everything was immaculately cleaned. Tom and Mary, who own and run the place, are some of the nicest and most hospitable people in the world, and really made us feel at home. They asked about food allergies beforehand, and even let us pick what time we wanted breakfast (we stuck to a lazy 10am). The food was amazing: We had coffee, orange juice, biscuits, fresh fruit, country ham, skillet potatoes and a tasty portabello-spinach omelette, all cooked and served by Tom and Mary. The tablepieces were gorgeous, it was almost surreal how perfect everything was. I cannot praise Austin's Inn Place enough, it exceeded our expectations beyond what I ever could have imagined and really tied together our first night as husband and wife. We will definitely be returning for our anniversaries, the experience was unforgettable! I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a special place to stay in Louisville.

We were very pleased with the service and the friendliness of Mary and Tom. The rooms were beautiful.

I ran the Kentucky Derby Marathon and stayed two nights at Austin's Inn Place. Tom, the owner, got up early to put out coffee, fruit, croissants for those of us running and I could walk to the start from the B&B. The jacuzzi tub in our room was wonderful post-marathon. The breakfasts were wonderful and the inn built in 1888 is charming and comfortable. Tom and Mary make guests feel at home and provide many amenities.

We had a 2 day getaway and decided to try a B&B. We were beyond impressed and have told all our friends about the wonderful stay we had. Austin's was sparkling clean, inviting and had every ammentity we could possibly want. The breakfast Mary and Tom cooked was 4 star all the way! Country ham, pumpkin pecan waffles, warm syrup. They think of everything you could possibly want. They were a very warm couple full of information about Louisville and it was within a few miles of everything we wanted to see. I would return without even checking other places to stay, it was that great. This couple knows what they are doing and they do it well. It was so great that this is the first time I have ever written a review on anything. Do yourself a favor and give it a try.

My girlfriend and I stayed there to finish off our Valentines Week with each other and absolutely loved it. The Inn itself was fantastic and very beautiful.

Austin's B&B was ideal for our weekend get-away. Tom and Mary helped us to feel right at home with their kindness and hospitality. We enjoyed the game room and complete with darts and a pool table. We also took advantage of the in room whirlpool tub which was very clean and relaxing. The bed linens were high quality and bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, had local country ham, omelette, and wonderful biscuits. Loved the area and close proximity to downtown attractions. They also had a great selection of newly released movies. I could not say enough nice things about the accommodations and the innkeepers. We are probable some of the younger guests (age 27 and 37) who seek out B&Bs, and Austin's truly has something for everyone.

We stayed here for a Thanksgiving getaway. It was the pineapples that first attracted me, and Tom and Mary live up to their meaning. Mary cooks the most scrumptious, delicious, breakfasts, something different every day, and always top quality. The atmosphere is relaxing and you really want to linger over your food. Our room was beautifully decorated and the jacuzzi whirlpool right in the room was just what we wanted to relax. The location is great. We were ten minutes from Churchill Downs (where we ate lunch Thanksgiving Day and oohed and ached over the horses), the property is right on the edge of the historical district, and just wandering around that district among the beautiful old houses is well worth while We were just nine blocks from the river and the downtown area and so it couldn't have been nicer. The driveway is gated, which gave a feeling of security for parking the car, and the laid out brick courtyard with hedges and roses is really beautiful. Tom and Mary are great "mine hosts" and we definitely go again.

Beautiful facility and amenities -- probably 100+ year old building, but impeccably restored. Best breakfast I've ever had! Louisville Slugger bat museum was about 5 minutes away. Tom & Mary Austin were very hospitable and attentive. We will definitely be back.

Not wanting to leave town on our wedding night, my wife and I picked Austin's as a quick getaway. What we didn't expect was how far we could feel from the city while being only minutes from home (and downtown!). The hospitality of our hosts was unmatched, as was the delightful breakfast we were served. Honestly, I've never slept in a more comfortable bed. I highly recommend Austin's for anyone looking to treat themselves.

This place exceeded my expectations in every way! The place was amazing on the inside and out. We were kindly greeted by Tom, who did arranged everything to meet our needs. The owners were so kind and friendly, and I really felt as if I were staying with family. They even had snacks set out and beverages for any time of day! The bed was comfortable, the location easy to find and convenient, and the breakfast outstanding! But most of all, they really had a way of making you feel at home. I will never stay anywhere else when in Louisville. Thank you Tom and Mary!!!!

We stayed at Austin's Inn during the St. James Court Art Show. The hosts, Tom and Mary, couldn't have been more kind and helpful. The Inn is very charming. I'm a stickler for cleanliness and this place was spotless. The bed in our king room was very comfortable and the linens were high quality. Mary made a delicious hot breakfast in the morning. It was nice to have access to a refrigerator for guests stocked with bottled water and soft drinks. We highly recommend Austin's Inn and we will definitely stay there again.

We stayed at Austin's Inn Place as part of a short "staycation" and we absolutely loved it. Tom and Mary are wonderful hosts and the home is beautiful. I've stayed in probably half a dozen B&Bs and I have to say that I felt most comfortable here than anywhere else I've stayed. The hospitality was top-notch and the food was delicious. We loved our guest room too. The bed was so comfortable and the hot tub was very relaxing. We enjoyed playing pool and browsing the books around the house too. We will definitely be back!

Mary and Tom were the nicest people. We even went back to stay a second night and they couldn't house us again so Mary called another B&B for us to stay in. It was very kind of her to do so. The room was great, very comfy king size bed with hot tub. A great variety of snacks and beverages. The breakfast was fantastic. Bowl of cantelope followed by a course of country ham, biscuits with hommade strawberry jam, and an omlett with spinach, mushrooms and cheese. Worth every penny.

We stay at Bed and Breakfasts, when we are out of town and rank Austin's Inn Place right at the top amongst all that we have had the pleasure to stay.

Gourmet meals-Mary is an excellent cook and the home reflects many loving details. It's great value for the $$$. The only draw back is the traffic noise and the area, but it's being revitalized and hopefully, more people will invest in the area. The garden and fountain are lovely and the beds are to die for!

My boyfriend and I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Austin's Inn Place. From the kindness of Mary and Tom, to the unique rooms, to the delicious breakfast,...I could write so many good things about this place. Simply, we were in awe and were very impressed at Mary and Tom's efforts to make us feel welcome and relaxed. Next time we stay in Louisville it will most likely be at Austin's Inn Place!
5 su aprile 22, 2011
We live in Louisville but wanted a small stay-cation to celebrate and get away from the norm. Austin's was perfect for this. The big draw for us was the in-room hot tub, which was a little slice of heaven! Everything about this place is relaxing, welcoming and beautiful. Their backyard garden area is gorgeous and the entire inn has a welcoming, yet urban feel. My husband and I loved that the place was not overly "grandma-ish" like some B&B's can be. The exposed brick and hardwood floors along with the decorating made for a younger, more urban feel than the overly frilly decorating you can see in some B&B's. The Innkeepers were so friendly and welcoming, but not overly so, they left us to enjoy our time together. We loved the snacks and drinks they had out for us, the wide selection of movies available to watch, and they even have a billiards room! Oh, and in the morning, the breakfast was to DIE for. We loved that we had our own private dining room to eat in, complete with relaxing music, and all the food was spectacular. I couldn't have been more pleased with the whole experience! Even though we live so close, we will probably be back and definately be recommending Austin's to friends and family.

We stayed for the first time at Austin's Inn for the Thunder Over Louisville and were very pleased with our stay. Tom and Mary were very friendly and accomodating. The inn was very nice and well upkept and clean. Very nice for a historic property. Also liked the fact that the property was gated and well-maintained due to the housing project located directly beside...which was a slight downside due to the beeping of the project's entrance gate from people coming and going all night. The breakfast was very good and we couldn't have been happier. The only complaint we had was the cable television didn't have a digital box so upon returning to the room that night we only had about 5 channels (but of course there's never anything on after midnight anyways). They did, however, have a large selection of DVD's that were available to us which would have eliminated that problem if we hadn't been too tired to watch a whole movie. Enjoyed our stay very much and if work schedule permits will try to return next year!

The Austin's Inn Place was wonderful. Beautiful inside and out, antique furnishings and explosed brick in every room. Mary and Tom were wonderful hosts meeting my every request at a level higher than my expectations. When I asked for champain glasses (my girlfriend and I got engaged at Lilly's!) Mary provided me with an ice bucket, glasses, napkins and a golden tray to carry it on to my room. When I asked a question about something I wanted to see Mary provided me with maps, directions and suggestions. Now that the inn is part of my "couple history" I'm sure we will return often.

What a nice surprise.... I arrived (a single, female traveler) late in the afternoon. Not only were the owners lovely, but the guests staying at the inn were very nice/helpful also. Upon entering, the first thing I noticed was the scent -- it was delicious, and there wasn't any food cooking. It reminded me of baking cinnamon rolls. YU-MMY! Onward to my room... which totally exceeded my expectations. Not only was it squeaky clean, it also had a well appointed en-suite bath. The fact that my TV had a built in DVD player and movies are available FREE just capped things off after a long, cross country journey. The only thing missing was room service ;-). I've found my "home away from home" when visiting Louisville! Excellent job Mary & Tom!

The innkeepers were so friendly and gave great recommendations for things to do in the area. Downtown was just a few blocks away from the BB and lots of nearby things to do.

I would definitely recommend to others and would go back myself.

My wife and I stayed for two nights for our 10th wedding anniversary the first weekend in February. This was our first stay at Austin's Inn Place and I can say for certain it will be the first of many. The room was beautiful and tastefully decorated, with a well executed blend of the old and new. For example, the hot tub did not appear out of place in the otherwise 19th century look. The hosts could not have been more helpful and friendly. The food was likewise excellent. As for location, it is just a few blocks from 4th Street Live! and numerous other attractions. The hosts were very knowledgeable about the local attractions, with maps and easy to follow directions to them. I can unreservedly recommend this B&B for romantic getaways, etc., and will certainly be staying there again. Thank you Tom and Mary for a wonderful and memorable weekend. I hope to see you again soon!

The rooms are big and comfortable and the breakfasts are top notch (example: biscuits, fresh grits, pepper bacon, omlette). The owners go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.
