Southern Hospitality

4.8 on October 09, 2017

The Main Street B & B, was the first b & b we’ve stayed at. It exceeded our expectations. The room was decorated beautifully, the home is lovely, with a unique history attached to it. It was nice meeting and getting to know the guests, and especially the owner’s brother, Steve. He was a gracious host. We talked, played cards, and broke bread together. The inn was affordable, the food good, and in close proximity to Mammoth Cave. We look forward to staying again. Maggie B., Michigan.

Great Host. Perfect if you love history

Karin and Gary are great people. Getting the scoop on the Glasgow area was very neat. Look forward to staying at one of thier B&Bs soon again.

Great BnB for Moderate Budget

5 on September 10, 2017

We've stayed in BnBs all over America/Europe. Because of this we have certain expectations and our overall rating of Main Street house Is top marks. We stayed in the DuPriest Room- good size, very comfortable bed, seating for reading; bathroom very roomy, place to set up to toiletries for two, fabulous shower Head with great water pressure. Breakfast was good. Cindy was outstanding and caring and a pleasure to work with. Karin was very responsive to our needs via phone. We highly recommend you stay here.

Very Odd

3.4 on August 13, 2017

Definitely, the oddest B&B that I have ever stayed in, and I have stayed in many. I arrived about 3:30 pm on a Monday and no one was there. There was a number to call in such a circumstance (so it must be somewhat common). I called a very friendly lady told me where the key was placed and to let myself in. She also said that another family would arrive later so I would not be alone for the night. She would arrive in the morning to cook breakfast. Around 11pm the other family did arrive. I felt a little weird to be in a strange house alone into the night, but I did not feel unsafe in any way. The next morning the breakfast was excellent, prepared by the nice lady (no owner) I spoke with the night before. Aside from this, my room was pretty dusty. Lots of nick-nacks that were never dusted, and the aside from the main floor walking area, the floors were dusty too. I did like the room (Greer) as the bed was comfortable, bathroom clean and spacious, and the whole house had a lot of character. I would stay there again, but this would not be a place for everyone.

Great place to stay in a great town

Our room was adorable and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was also great. The only I had was that at some point during each night the air conditioning automatically turned off so it got really hot in our room and made it hard to sleep. But I'd still give the bed and breakfast 5 stars.

On the way home

We had a wonderful conversation with the other couple staying the night. Te owners didn't live there so didn't see them much. Was very comfortable room. Didn't have any glasses to drink in the room. Breakfast was good.

This Bed and Breakfast was in a word serene. From the moment I got there I was content. A glass of wine, candles, perhaps a bubble bath would have been the only thing that could have made it better. Perfect.

Enjoyed this stay!

It was a delightful trip and the B&B was full of history and personality!

My first bed and breakfast was not a let down

Thank you for an awesome experience. The owners went above and beyond. My sister went into labor and my phone was dead! No charger, no computer, and no GPS! They came to welcome me and relayed the message that I needed to go to the hospital ASAP. They gave me directions and a charger someone left behind. Breakfast was amazing and the hospitality even better. The perfect rustic/historical getaway that didn't break the bank!
