Fabulous Bed & Breakfast in Louisville, Ky

5 on June 06, 2015

We have just returned from spending four nights with Mary & Tom Austin of Austin's Bed & Breakfast in Louisville, KY. The Amenities were outstanding and Mary and Tom were a pleasure as host and hostess. We cannot say enough good about our stay. We were very impressed with their cleanliness, their breakfast as well as the proximity to downtown Louisville. Our stay was an awesome experience.

Great place!

We stayed at Austin's Inn Place one night during a quick visit to Louisville. It was such a great place! The innkeepers were very accommodating. The beautiful old home is clean and unique. We enjoyed our stay and wished we could have stay longer!

Great place and hosts, wonderful food!

My wife and I stayed 11-28-14 thru 11-30-14. The owners/hosts are very nice and knowledgable about the area. The breakfasts are UNBELIEVABLY good!! The room and houses are very nice, clean, and well kept. Good overall decorations etc. I would definitely stay here again! We are first time visitors to Louisville and this was a great place to stay as it is centrally located to everything we wanted to see!

My husband and I stayed on 10-17-14 for our 8 year anniversary. We loved it, very cozy. Tom and Mary were very nice people. Mary was very sweet and knew her way around the city. We would go back.

Splendor in Louisville

Beautiful century homes close to streetcar to downtown. Owners, Mary and Tom made you feel right at home with little tidbits to help your visit. The breakfasts were incredible.

Lovely Inn

Tom and Mary were very friendly and so willing to give us information about Louisville and things available to do. Our room was very nice. They were very understanding when our arrival time changed unexpectedly. Wonderful breakfasts! I particularly loved the ten grain waffles. Thd country ham was also very good; I believe it was local sourced. The inn very near downtown Louisville so it was very convenient. Loved our stay!

Last Minute Stay

We had decided to do a last minute stay. There was 1 room left. Tom and Mary were so accommodating. Everything was beautiful, clean and orderly. The pictures online don't do it justice. Breakfast was amazing. We recommend to anyone and plan on going back soon!!

Come for the breakfast!

This was our first time staying in a B&B and it was everything we hoped for. While the location is a little rough, it is revitaliazing and not a real issue. Mary and Tom were gracious and helpful hosts, giving us several ideas for where to eat supper. The inn is so historically beautiful, the bed was fabulous but the most impressive part of our stay was breakfast...absolutely fantastic!

First Time B&B

Our first experience was wonderful! Very friendly, great rooms, excellent food. Looking forward to trying more B&Bs. Highly recommend this place.

Best Ever!
