Perfect spot when in Loretto!

4.8 on November 19, 2014

The Hill House B & B is the perfect place to stay when in Loretto, KY. The owner was very accommodating and friendly through the whole process. My only less-than-perfect mark would be for the pee mats that her dog apparently urinates on by the front door, but really that's nit-picky. Overall our stay was fabulous, the rooms were homey and spacious, and the breakfast was delicious. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

The Hill House is Outstanding!

Our stay was fantastic. Right from the minute we walked in the door, Lisa Marie was there to greet us and make us feel immediately at home. Our room was beautifully decorated and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the en-suite bathroom was clean and roomy. Lisa Marie works with all guests and comes up with a breakfast menu that works for everyone. The food is great and the service is outstanding. This is the most friendly B&B we have ever had the pleasure of staying. We highly recommend the Hill House B&B.

had a group of eight from Pennsylvania. occupied the whole house. The breakfasts served as two meals as we were filled up thru lunch. Large back patio that allowed for a nice propane/heater/fire that we all sat around in the evening and enjoyed our newly purchased distilled spirits. Lisa Marie offers red/white wine in the afternoon that we gladly accepted over the tea!

Wonderful Stay!

My husband and I spend one night here while visiting part of the bourbon industry in Kentucky. I am sorry it was only one night! The house is clean and comfortable. We were in the Oak Room, with a whirlpool tub and a nice amount of room. However, we spent most of our time downstairs in the parlor. Lisa Marie (the owner/innkeeper) was welcoming and very friendly. We had wine in the evening and a delicious breakfast in the morning, and really enjoyed chatting with her. As an additional perk there was a "loaner" dog! Seriously, her tiny dog Rudy was very friendly and affectionate. I would definitely recommend this Inn!

Charming B&B and host
