Calm and relaxing location

The bedrooms were quite small, and there was no bathtub, but otherwise the experience was great. We were the only guests, which was nice, because the two bedrooms were very close to each other. The breakfasts were very nice, and the hosts were very friendly, and the price was fantastic.

Lovely Get-away

Way out in the boonies, this place is perfect for what I wished to do: read, sleep, hike, and visit nearby sites. The Hoovers are friendly, informed, and helpful. I was also delighted to be asked to choose a breakfast to order each morning. The only caution I might give is if a person is of a larger size or has a lot of luggage, one might have trouble getting to the bedrooms since the main entrance to them is up a picturesque spiral staircase.

The perfect wedding night!

The property is beautiful, the rooms clean, the owners are sweet and the breakfast was delicious. We were only there one night but I definitely recommend it.

Great place tucked away in Russellville, KY

This place felt like it was wayyyy off the beaten path, but in reality was just a few miles from Russellville. Tom and Judith were great hosts and Judith's breakfast was fantastic. One tip - if you have large luggage stay in the Dragonfly room. Trying to get my suitcase up the spiral staircase almost killed Tom!

Charming little nest in the middle of the woods. The owners were the depiction of "Southern Charm!"

Beautiful grounds; great fishing; peaceful; hosts very amicable; guest house extremely well thought out, designed, and decorated. There are two bedrooms upstairs with showers, half bath downstairs and two sitting areas, one up and one down; sleeper love seat, comfortable couch. Full kitchen, laundry, coffee bar, beautiful dining area with china etc. Spiral staircase kids would love (or the kid in you). I don't recommend for large folks-one bedroom has an outside entrance/small deck and stairs. If you want the place to yourself, you must pay for both the rooms-okay if you're on a friend's weekend/family get together. Otherwise you will most likely be sharing the place with strangers; that may be okay with you-you'' have to coordinate use of rooms, full kitchen and outside areas; basically it's like sharing a very nice apartment/small home. The price is reasonable for one bedroom for one person or couple. If I had to pay for the whole place, I'd want it to be with good friends or family; it's a bit too close quarters to share with strangers if you don't really enjoy each other's company. But then, you'd get that in a typical b&b, so it depends what kind of experience you're needing-solitude, meet new folks, romantic weekend, girlfriend's weekend/mom daughter time, or for writing/retreat. We plan to return when we can; would love to see it in all seasons. USE THE BUG REPELLENT! Your own or what they generously provide-this is tick heaven; we hiked on the trails which weren't mowed real well in places (we were warned) and were covered in ticks and mosquito bites-our own fault, I'm just saying you NEED to use the bug spray LIBERALLY. Had we done that, the overnight would have been nearly perfect. This is a jewel in the woods and I highly recommend it.

Nice, quiet place

What a charming place. We really enjoyed our stay and getting to know the owners. The location, accomodations and food was all good. We are planning another trip in the fall. Their is a great Italian restaurant in Russellville - Ariella's - if you come to stay here make sure you check it out - you will think you are in a large city based on the quality and ambiance. Enjoy.
