Fabulous Getaway

Loved staying in historical home. Breakfast was amazing.

My fiancé and I wanted to take a weekend get away and came to Glasgow for some hiking and other various site seeing. I had found the Main Street Bed & Breakfast online prior to our arrival and selected it because I wanted to steer away from the main stream hotel chains. Karin was wonderful and met us to check in as soon as we called her and was very helpful with recommending places to go in the area. The breakfast the next day was absolutely delicious and Cindy was so friendly and. I would recommend the Main Street B&B to anyone looking for a place to stay that is more unique than just staying at a hotel. It is rich with history and the time and effort that has been put in to preserving and restoring this gorgeous structure shows throughout the entire home.

Great, quaint little place.

Stayed here after another reservation fell through. I didn't want to stay at a commercial hotel that would be nasty, so I knew a B&B was the way to go. I read other reviews and knew what to expect for the area. This trip included myself, husband and 9 yo daughter. We stayed in the Sandy Rose Room on the 1st floor which was large even with the added rollaway bed. There is a lot of road noise from Main Street but we live in a big city so it wasn't an issue for us. Just know that you do hear cars driving by at all hours and occasionally ambulances. Like I said, not an issue for us. The room was clean, bed was comfy and breakfast was good-even accommodated an early request for 7:30 breakfast for us and another family that were heading out for day trips. Jamie, the Innkeeper was very nice. Considering this is much cheaper than the hotels (during spring break) off the highway, it was a great value and much better option! If we pass through this way again, I would definitely stay here.

Beautiful weekend!

My husband and I stayed here for our 5th anniversary weekend getaway. The entire place was very clean and tastefully decorated with antiques. Breakfast was basic and simple but good and satisfactory. The location is extremely convenient to local destinations and a pleasant drive to Mammoth Cave. I would recommend this inn to anyone needing a clean, affordable, and charming place to stay!

Better that we hoped for

On our way to Nashville, we spent two nights here to visit Mammoth Cave National Park and the Corvette Assembly Plant. We were so please that we canceled out third night at the Gaylord in Nashville and spent another night here instead. They are great hosts and it was nice meeting other travelers over a home cooked breakfast.

Lovely and historic

My daughter and I had a very nice stay in the Dickinson Room and we were very comfortable and cozy. I just loved the rustic beauty of it and yet it had every comfort I could wish for. Despite being on Main Street and next to the police station, it was very quiet and there was very little traffic. Our breakfasts were delicious and we had a chance to chat with other guests. The hostess was helpful and polite. We found it very convenient for touring Mammoth Cave.

Friendly Innkeeper, Gorgeous and Historic place

Based on the age of the building, I had expected creaky floorboards and dust. I could not have been more happily suprised. The owners have managed to keep the look, feel, and charm of the historic building, without making it feel like you're sleeping in grandma's attic. Breakfast was outstanding, but please note it is AT 8:30...this is very well noted when you arrive. We got the luxury of being able to see all of the other rooms when we arrived, as the other guests had not yet checked in. We stayed in the Greer Room, which for us, was perfect, with the two brick walls adding character, and it being an isolated room, only sharing a bathroom wall with the laundry room.

Wonderful Bed and Breakfast

Our first time at a Bed and Breakfast & it was wonderful. Spent our 20 year wedding anniversary here. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was amazing! We met a couple that shared our first names and a whole lot of the same interest. The host were both very friendly and welcoming. And to top it off the history of this house makes for great memories. Thank you so very much!
