My wife and I stayed at "A Storybook Inn" from April 27th to the 29th. A most beautiful Inn in an area famous for Kentucky horse farms, Keeneland, stone fences, and Kentucky bourbon. The Inn and it's grounds are immaculate, and the guest rooms are themed around famous movie classics. We were in "Gone With The Wind", very comfortable, and with many pictures, and items to remind one of the movie and book. The breakfasts are well thought out healthy delights, including fruits, vegetables, eggs, etc. The Innkeeper, Elise; the interim innkeepers, Susan and Jim; and the staff; were all just what one would expect in a top notch Bed and Breakfast. They were friendly, polite, courteous, and helpful. Put "A Storybook Inn" on your bucket list of inns to stay at. You won't find a better inn to visit.......Bill & Gloria
Easy to find; restful setting in lovely historic B&B; easy check-in/check-out; spacious room and bath; ample parking space; close to a variety of activities/sights; delicious gourmet breakfasts; gracious hostess/owner and staff!
Great central location that is close to many attractions. The inn has a great proprietor that makes you feel comfortable immediately. The rooms are spacious and a perfect nighttime retreat.
This was our first stop on our 2400 mile road trip and probably our favorite! Our hostess saw to our comfort and the family cats saw to the hospitality! We loved it! We stayed in the Tara suite and other than not having a "shower" per se, everything was marvelous! Not the least of which was breakfast in the morning. Pam has ruined all other waffles for me in perpetuity! She's a spectacular hostess! The house felt like home, but better! We'll be back--and we hope the cats will all still be there!
We had a very pleasant experience at this B&B while touring the bourbon trail. Pam was very knowledgeable about the area, and the B&B was located about 20mins away from 4-5 different distilleries! The food was good and the rooms were clean. Pam was very polite and helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Hubby and I were traveling in Kentucky to look at property and decided to stay at the Lawrenceburg B&B rather than a hotel since it was also our anniversary. Ron and Marlene were wonderful hosts and made us feel like special guests in their beautifully refurbished older home. Marlene is the cook extraordinaire with her amazing breakfasts and yummy desserts, and we enjoyed visiting and relaxing with her and Ron during "wine and cheese" time. Ron also shared with us his very impressive model train set-up he has in the basement--wow! Too, our room (The Back Room) was huge, yet comfortable, and immaculately clean. An overall fantastic B&B experience--the best we've had to date!
My husband and I may very well become the inn’s most ardent patrons. We were introduced to the pristine Storybook Inn 4 years ago this March and have returned on four occasions, each time lured by the warm memories of Elise’s gracious hospitality and fabulous cooking in one of the most elegant bed and breakfast settings we have ever experienced. We always marvel at how well Elise maintains the inn and attends to every detail with perfection. From the unique decor of each room and the handwritten welcome note, to the thick robes and warm baked goodies waiting for us, Elise hits the mark on everything that makes a weekend at the Storybook Inn nothing less than enchanting. It’s become our oasis, always delivering on the promise of a relaxing time away from our hectic schedules and work commitments. Elise masterfully blends her love of old world charm and her affinity for current trends in organic cooking and modern pampering. Fred and Josee U
Everything about this little B&B was charming -- from the rooms and the house to the great service. We would absolutely stay here again, and recommend it to anyone staying in the Lexington area!
My wife and I have stayed twice and each time it was a memorable and relaxing experience, thanks to the care and warmth of innkeeper Barbara. I look forward to returning and adding to my memories of relaxation in this charming locale.
Truly home away from home. I felt so comfortable, like I was home. Ron and Marlene are just the best. Everything was perfect. I enjoyed everything there at the bed and breakfast. But the area had some really special things to offer: pottery painting, bourbon, wine, shopping. My first experience at a bed and breakfast. Enjoyed it so much that we booked another weekend. A great weekend.
My husband, myself, our two (very young) children and my parents all stayed together in the Guesthouse. My husband and I previously stayed in the guesthouse and new it was the perfect accommodation for when our children were accompanying us do to this establishment's dedication to cleanliness and guest comfort. Anyone with small children understands that they are compelled to live life on the floor! This property is so immaculately maintained that I did not mind having them play on the floor as if they were in our own home! From start to finish our experience has always exceeded our expectations. The Innkeeper and staff welcomed us and our children and treated our little ones as if they were their very own. They made sure our picky little eaters were satisfied at breakfast and even indulged our daughter by allowing her to open the beautiful garden gate! This establishment is exquisite. So beautiful in fact that I cannot imagine very many young children visit because it is such a retreat for those adults who enjoy beautiful surroundings and fine dining. However, my children were right at home here and they were welcomed whole heartedly. This establishment can host anyone with grace and elegance. A rare treat you mustn't miss! We will be back again! ~ The Hancock Family
Wonderful stay in the guesthouse for a long weekend. Exceptional service from Elise and her staff for our large group. Delicious breakfast each morning and special treats in the guesthouse each afternoon.
This is a lovely B & B - every detail is perfect. A very quiet area but close enough to visit attractions if you ever want to leave the Inn! The breakfasts are beyond amazing and the service is excellent. I stayed in the Casablanca Room. It was warm, comfortable and gorgeously decorated.I stayed the week before Thanksgiving and the Inn was decorated in all the Fall colors! Everyone on the staff should be commended for their professional service and their commitment to making your stay a memorable one.
This is a great place read the reviews of 2 B&B in Lexington and the Lyndon had good reviews so we chose it and the reviews where right we enjoyed our stay we where in town for a UK basketball and football game. We took a cab to the UK basketball game but walked back. The food was good and we got full would have like a more tradition southern breakfast but it was good. Would visit help again if every in area
My wife had business in nearby Midway, and I suggested we reserve a night at Rosecrest rather than simply turning around and driving the 5 hours back home. What a treat! We got our business finished and spent a Friday afternoon, night and Saturday morning there. The fall weather was crisp, our hosts Lyra and Charles were great, the guest house is actually separate from the main house (a plus), rooms had their own keys for security, breakfast was great and we got a tour of the farm. And Lyra answered every one of my questions on the tour. Next door is the famous Claiborne Farm (home of Secretariat) and we saw a Secretariat grandson at Rosecrest, which is also conveniently located just 3 miles from Paris, Ky. The cozy and well-decorated guest house has three bedrooms, and there were two other couples there while we stayed, making for great breakfast conversation. If you go, bring your favorite drinks or bottled water with you. Two small water bottles are provided with a large chocolate horseshoe. Lyra was so good about letting us stash a few cans of soda and a bottle of wine in the kitchen fridge. We stayed in the Derby Suite upstairs - oh, it is worth the few extra dollars. The mattress (often literally a sore point for us) was wonderfully supportive, and the room was CLEAN. Rosecrest Farm turned our chore trip into a fun time and some memories. Thanks, and we hope to return!
Great place to stay, beautiful Rooms, excellent breakfast and nice owners Pamela & Richard with their warm hospitality. Every day a different and brilliant breakfast. We'll come back to this beautiful place for sure
The ca 1911 Montgomery Inn is a wonderfully quirky, welcoming, and very special place to rest and relax. Pam is a terrific hostess, and leads the entire staff in a light-touch personal effort to guarantee a pleasant stay. There is no better place for a couples getaway, or to meet and stay with a group of friends.
My wife and I have stayed in multiple BnBs both domestically and in other countries for a long time. The (ca 1911) Montgomery Inn is the favorite. The comfortable, quirky rooms, the welcoming and attentive staff, the great food, and the general atmosphere all combine to make it a very special place. We also notice that the guests we meet in comfortable circumstances transition to friends -- even if only the duration of a weekend -- in short order. Highly recommended.
The hospitality was exceptional; staff is very pleasant, thoughtful, and fun. Certainly made us feel like we were at home and the breakfast was delicious. The bedding sheets and comforters were sufficient, but for the quality of the B&B they should be replaced; kind of worn. Great place to stay; treated us well.
Eleven of us came to A Storybook Inn to celebrate our 65th birthday's, and, we weren't disappointed. We arrived to find a delicious derby pie, along with a birthday card, waiting for us. We rented the 'guest house' as well as the 'Gone with the Wind' suite. What an amazing place! Beautiful, comfortable, elegant! We especially enjoyed the yummy breakfasts that were served in their conservatory (so pretty with fresh flowers each morning). The staff, Elise, Robin and Veronica did everything possible to make our stay memorable. And, they succeeded. Would totally recommend the Inn. Hope to return one day.
This was my 6th visit to The Storybook Inn and I've already made my reservation for next year. The owner is such an exceptional chef. Be sure to request her quiche or the pumpkins waffles. The easy access to Keeneland is a great plus since you're coming from the opposite direction of most of the traffic. And if you're actually hungry for dinner, Melissa's Cafe is a nice little walk into town.
A wonderful, charming oasis, hidden deep on a beautiful farm. Girlfriends and I shared a small class reunion and the fabulous memories we made will forever be etched in our hearts. Barbara and her staff have raised the B&B bar! Will definitely go back and recommend to others!
My wife and I stayed at Rosecrest B&B for our Anniversary. It's a beautiful setting with rolling hills and horses. Accommodations are nice and the breakfast was awesome. We received a tour of the farm upon arrival and were invited to walk around and meet the horses. It was a relaxing and romantic time.
It was absolutely amazing....one of the best! Elise is so welcoming and such a gracious hostess. Cookies and cakes were waiting for us in our guesthouse when we arrived home in the afternoons - the best! Celebrated my husband's 60th with our 3 sons and spouses ...could not have picked a better place. Everything about it was perfect!
