A little on the pricey side and would have liked a more country style breakfast (pancakes, bisquits and gravy, etc), but overall was very nice and we enjoyed our stay!
We were pleased that you had chosen to join us at the Lyndon House for your stay in Lexington. Thank you for taking time to write a review. Breakfast at the Lyndon House can best be describes as “Bluegrass Urban Foodie.” For example, one menu favorite with guests is our Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancake service with a Blueberry-Bourbon Sauce. Another favored dish is a slice of frittata baked with Italian sausage, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh basil and mozzarella cheese. Breakfast begins with freshly cut fruit, warm biscuits, chilled juices, and Columbian coffee. Then guests can choose either the daily special or typical fare such as French toast or eggs cooked to order. Anton Giovanetto, Innkeeper

A lovely, beautifully-appointed house with spacious, attractive rooms, an easy one-mile walk to the heart of downtown Lexington. Owner/chef Anton is on top of every detail. Highly recommended.

Everything was perfect except the central vac was out, which marred the breakfast experience. Individual room units insured a good nights sleep. This family run BandB was warm and welcoming. Great value. Very impressive decor.

B&B was very pleasant, host was helpful in describing places and things to do. Walking distance to center of town an easy walk. Enjoyed our stay and will do again.

The house itself is beautiful, each room is very nice. Location is great; it's a short walk or drive to great food and drinks, and there are plenty of things to do in the area. Breakfast in the morning was great, checking in and out was very quick and easy, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

Easy to locate. Limited parking in rear of home but more close by. Very clean room. Private bathroom down the hall also very clean and well stocked in case one forgot an item. Has elevator or beautiful staircase. Breakfast was excellent with a variety of choices. The house was lovely with several sitting areas. There were books to read. The owner has impeccable manners. Price comparable to the local hotels. My first time at a B&B and I ready enjoyed the experience.

Liked water provided in room. Would have liked a small snack like oatmeal cookie for example in the evening. Was close enough to walk to downtown but very quiet inside.Great towels and provisions in bathroom. The whole house was very comfortable and not cludderd. Would have enjoyed seeing art work that reflected the region attractions like horses, countryside etc and local artwork.
