Acorn and Fox Inn

85 Noble Oaks Drive , Bronston, KY 42518 USA (Show map)


An upscale Inn, with an amazing view, on the cliffs above beautiful Lake Cumberland. Located on 10 acres of piney woods in the Cumberland River Recreational Area just outside Somerset and Burnside, Kentucky. Finished in the fall of 2004, 8 bedrooms; 5 with spectacular lake views, 3 looking into the woods. All rooms have a separate entry, private bath, most with a “jacuzzi tub”, king size bed, and furnished using mostly antiques. A wonderful breakfast is served from 7:00 am to 9:30 am. We have a large deck overlooking the lake and country side for your dining and relaxing pleasure.

A must stay destination!

We have stayed here several times. The rooms are beautiful with wonderful décor. Spotless and clean! Breakfast is always delicious. Very accommodating if you have dietary needs. We have stayed at many B & B's and this is our favorite!

Wheeler Reunion 2012

What a lovely place! We had a family reunion and reserved the entire B&B. Nancy and her husband as well as Mr. Noble were the "perfect" hosts for our event. The coffee stayed hot (3 pots) and plentiful, our "fixings" table was decorated and ready for daily use, the meals were superb, and the rooms were lovely and comfortable. Our family plans on returning each year and we would recommend Acorn & Fox to anyone wishing a quiet retreat with Southern hospitlity. Philpots, Suwanee, Ga. Oct., 2012

The drive out of town had us a little confused, its really was only about 2 or so miles out of town, when we got there we were so surprised. This home was built to be a Bed and Breakfast so they have all the standard conviences of a hotel but with a fabulous homey feel. The place is furnished so beautifully and they have a wonderful view of Lake Cumberland. We also really liked the friendly atmosphere and innkeeper. We will definetly be returning.

Room with a view

"Lakeside" -- the name of our room, overlooking a cliff of rustling trees, focusing on Cumberland lake below. But view is the same from the living room walled with windows or the charming screened-in porch. Breakfast -- scrumptious! Hospitality -- satisfying, helpful, charming! Don't let this be your first B&B; you might find it hard to measure up to next time.

oh, what a view!

We stayed for 2 nights in the beautiful 'Lakeside Room' with its own deck overlooking Lake Cumberland. It was marvelous!

Just Like Home

5 on June 01, 2009

What a wonderful experience our family and extended family had at the Acorn and Fox Inn. Not only were we treated as family, but Myrna and Al went above and beyond our expectations. We were there during a difficult time. Having just lost my Father, we were able to have a "home" away from home while making funeral arrangements. I will never forget the hospitalilty and caring that were shown to us. Thanks again, Myrna and Al. You were truly a blessing to us. Babs and Fred Summers

Ideal Relaxation

5 on September 12, 2008

My husband and I were given a weekend stay as a gift and it was a perfect getaway for relaxation. The rooms were spacious and private, comfy and home, and everything was as neat and clean as could be! The views were georgous and with the numerous decks, there were plenty of areas to sit and relax, whether you wanted to socialize or spend a bit of time alone. Myrna and Al make you feel completely at home in their lovely home. Myrna's cooking is delicious, but don't expect the stereotypical toast and bacon breakfast. We were delighted with some complex recipes that were accompanied by fresh fruit. Both my husband and I highly recommend the Acorn and Fox Inn to anyone looking to relax. The area close by is a smaller town, but there are plenty of places to shop and antique as well as a drive in movie theater. If you are willing to drive a short distance, there's also Cumberland Falls and several other nature interests to visit. HIGHLY recommend and we will be returning.
