Lexington experience

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.

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast

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.


Excellent alternative to a hotel - very clean

5 on July 10, 2014

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.


Charming B&B

Anton is a wonderful innkeeper and served a yummy breakfast. His website provided good choices for restaurants.


very happy with our choice

3.6 on June 01, 2014

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.


Exceptional B&B

4.8 on May 19, 2014

We have traveled to Lexington on five (5) occasions and have stayed at the Lyndon House on each visit. The Lyndon House will exceed your expectations and the surroundings are more comfortable than being at home. Anton is an excellent inn keeper and makes each stay enjoyable.


Beautiful Lexington House!

Very attractive, convenient location. Walking distance to downtown and University. Fantastic host, full of ideas of things to do in the area. I would definitely stay here again.


Impeccable Details

4.2 on April 27, 2014

The owner has taken great care to refurbish this home with the elegant features that existed in another time. I absolutely loved the painted, ornate, mouldings! The rooms were very nice, although the bathroom in our suite was quite small, but thankfully, en suite. The breakfast specials were wonderful! Our only complaint was from the noises from the construction next door. However, this was compensated for with an invitation to tour the renovations in the house next door, as we love old houses.
