The wall shown is the Italian plaster design in our dining room by master craftsman, Steve Walker, who applied and painted the wall from plaster he imported from Italy. The wall looks and feels like marble because of the crushed marble in the plaster.
We spoil you with afternoon snacks. Here are some hand-dipped dark chocolate (using natural Ghirardelli chocolate) strawberries. We serve homemade Oatmeal Raisin cookies, Apple Bourbon Cake, Dark Chocolate Brownies and a host of other homemade dessert snacks.
A Storybook Inn in the Fall is many people's favorite time to visit, whether going to the Keeneland Race meet or just enjoying the beauty of the riot of fall colors.
Summer, our wise, kind cat. She and her buddy, Boots, have their own furnished house (over 100 yr old restored playhouse in courtyard). Out of consideration to our guests who may have a cat allergy, our kitties are NOT permitted inside the Inn or Guesthouse.
They are very well behaved kitties. Most all of our guests love them. They are not pestiferous but help control the squirrels from being a total nuisance (eating through the garbage cans, etc.)
A snowfall at the Inn. It may be cold and blustery outside but inside it is cozy and warm and inviting!
We are one of three Select Registry Inns in Kentucky. We are honored to be a Select Registry Inn.

So say our Cape Cod guests who have come twice yearly for nearly a decade.
A Storybook Inn is located on acreage in the historic district of quaint, historic Versailles, but in walking distance to shops and restaurants. (15 minutes from Lexington, close to artsy shops of Midway.)
It is so refreshing to find an award winning historic Inn that is fantastically restored and unequivocally gorgeous but at the same time, not pretentious.
We use as many local, organic ingredients as possible. Wonderful afternoon snacks. We have a staff that is ready, willing and able to assist you to make your stay more enjoyable. We can assist you with horse farm tours (please call ahead), dinner reservations, and en-suite massages by a professional Massage Therapist (by appointment).
Our guest rooms and suite are very tastefully designed after Classic movies and scrupulously clean enough for the most persnickety germaphobe.
The Inn is designed to be a delight to the senses with original oil paintings, tasteful furnishings and antiques but sensitive to travelers needs such as free wireless.
You will see why our guests regularly tell us things like this recent review:
After traveling extensively here in the US and abroad, staying in both small inns as well as top rated hotels, I would rate A Storybook Inn as the best small Inn or Bed and Breakfast I have encountered."
