Tucker House is an 1840 National Register homestead that has been meticulously restored to its original simple beauty. Set upon five gorgeous acres which include woods, a spring-fed lake, the original stone springhouse, gardens and a huge in-ground pool, this brick, Federal-style farmhouse is only fifteen minutes to downtown and two minutes from a major interstate highway. Inside you will find the original cherry staircase and poplar-board floors, seven fireplaces, seeded-glass window panes, and rooms filled with antiques of the early 1800's. In the morning, you will awaken to the aromas of freshly-ground coffee brewing and bacon on the griddle. Your sumptuous breakfasts may either be served to you in the formal dining room on antique china, in the sunlit gathering room on Kentucky pottery, or on the deck overlooking the woods and gardens. We warmly invite you to come and enjoy the history, beauty and hospitality that await you here at Tucker House!

From the friendly greeting at my car, Sophie's welcome, to the beautiful grounds, antiques and gracious hosts, I loved Tucker House and will come again.

My fiance and I stayed at 1840 Tucker House and loved every minute of it. From the fabulous owners that made us feel so at home, to the best breakfast in Louisville, everything was top notch. My favorite part though were the small touches everywhere that makes you feel like you have gone back in time and sleep in the 1800's, but you get all of the conveniences of modern modern technology. The owners have really put their heart into this place and it shows. I highly recommend 1840 Tucker House Alyssa and Hampton

Had a wonderful stay over Easter. We stayed in the Traveler’s room and it was great. The house is fabulous and we were amazed at the detail in the kitchen to make it look authentic but with all the modern conveniences. I would definitely stay here again! PS hope everyone had fun at Disney :)

My husband and I hated to leave the Tucker House! The owners, Steve and Devona, were delightful and hit the right note as innkeepers to ensure that our visit was perfect. Their attention to detail was everywhere; the beautiful restorations and wonderful antiques throughout combined to make us very comfortable without feeling we were in a museum. Breakfast was delicious and relaxed, despite the fact that the innkeepers were hosting 25 family members and friends for Thanksgiving dinner a mere 6 hours after we finished breakfast! Martha Stewart, look out!

We stayed at the Tucker House for the second time in four months. We absolutely love this place. The innkeepers are wonderful, friendly and accommondating. We love the Courting Chamber, with its whirlpool tub and walk-in shower. The home is beautifully restored and contains so many antiques; it is very inviting. If you like staying at B&B's, then do not miss staying at the Tucker House.

We celebrated our anniversary with an overnight at the Tucker House. It is a beautiful house, especially the antique furnishings. Our hosts served us a magnificent breakfast, highlighted by the "ableskiver" pancakes. We enjoyed the swimming pool on a sweltering August afternoon.
