Beautiful property and hosts

5 on May 17, 2018

We enjoyed two nights at this property with our travel companions. The suites are very clean, beds comfortable and ambience so peaceful. The hosts, Judith and Tom, are warm and welcoming,and make wonderful breakfasts. This is the perfect place for a quiet get away. We found it worked perfectly for us to get a few days rest and to get ready for our flights home after a three week road trip. Thank you so much. Judith and Tom, for having this very special place to share with others.

Great quiet place to relax

Everything was awesome and I highly recommend this B&B for a true small-town Kentucky experience!

Beautiful little home in the woods

What a wonderful place this is! The property is beautiful, and Tom and Judith could not have been nicer. This would be a perfect place for friends to get together, or an extended family, since the two guest rooms share a living and dining space. We were the only guests during our weeklong visit, so we had the house to ourselves, which was perfect.

A Beautiful Gem in Kentucky

Beautiful property for hiking, well equipped and maintained; rooms were plenty large with private baths; breakfast service and conversation were most excellent; highly recommend and looking forward to coming back!

Spring Return to the Wren's Next

5 on March 29, 2017

Late March was my most recent return to The Wren's Nest where I normally stay two or three times per year. Both the facilities and the service remains excellent as long as one appreciates being out in the country away from mobile phone service and wifi. Remains my favorite to place to be able to get away from it all ... and enjoy Tom and Judith Hoover's wonderful breakfasts!

Weekend Getaway

We were fortunate to have the place to ourselves because the other room ( Butterfly), in the cottage rented separately. Not a good fit if you had been with people you didn't know. This was the only drawback we didn't know about. So Tom and Judith were a delight to chat with and the breakfast was great!! This cottage is made for a family style unless you rent both rooms. The hiking trail was good exercise too and plan to go back and do some fishing :) Thanks Tom and Judith
