Another quiet, relaxing visit to the Wren's Nest

Just spent four early spring days at the Wren's Nest - my third time there in the past six months. The rooms and other facilities continue to be quiet, relaxing, and comfortable. It was my first stay in the slightly larger bedroom which was useful as I needed a little more room to spread out work I was doing. Also, the view into the woods and access to the back deck were also positive for this particular choice. Tim and Judith were in top form; I always love our morning conversations. Plus I find the morning breakfasts excellent and log lasting. I'm never in any rush for lunch afterwards and many times I don't really feel a need to eat again until evening. I am very happy the very little cell phone connectivity there and the total lack of wifi access at this point; others might not be as happy with this as I am, but I find I can do that when I go into town. Yes, I am looking forward to returning again.

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!"
