A Wonderful stay

5 on February 12, 2017

We stayed here for an early Valentines day weekend and I couldn't be happier. The room was clean and unique (with an amazing spa tub) and the food and hostess were both wonderful. I will be recommending this to my friends and family for the next time they are in the area.

Wife's birthday weekend

We had such a lovely weekend. Loved the decor of our room. This place has charm and personality that you won't find at the sterilized cookie cutter hotel chains. Our hostess was wonderful and I wish we could have sat on the porch and talked for a couple more hours. Hope to make a return visit again soon as there is a lot to do in the surrounding area.

An Outstanding Experience

The ca 1911 Montgomery Inn BnB is a location to be treasured. It is homey, comfortable, and friendly. Shannon, who was managing during our stay, was anticipatory and attentive to every need. She even personally accommodated a special breakfast request all three mornings we were there. This is a highly recommended destination. The Inn's convenience to good dining in Versailles (e.g., Ricardo's and Napa Prime) as well as Midway (e.g., Heirloom and the HollyHill Inn), plus Keeneland (!) and the University of KY sports venues make it a great hub as well as a place for connecting and re-connecting. If you want to brake your life-speed to an enjoyable pace -- this is the BnB you want.

We stayed here for our 20th wedding anniversary getaway. The owners were so friendly. We stayed in the Foxhunt Room and The room looked like it does in the picture and was lovely with the most comfortable mattress we've slept on anywhere we've stayed. The breakfast tasted great and truly filled us up. We would stay here again.

Innkeeper Response
Such a pleasure having you! Just don't wait 20 years to return! LOL

The owners let us check in early due to bad weather and being on a motorcycle. They were extremely accommodating to the circumstances and we really appreciated that!

Innkeeper Response
We love that we could accommodate you! Thanks for your kind review!!

Birthday trip

4.2 on July 27, 2016

Everything about our stay was very nice. However , the back porch of our room was in desperate need of painting and did not make it inviting to sit outside. Also, the cats roaming around trying to get inside were bothersome.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for reviewing us! We have revamped the porch with fresh paint and new furnishings. I regret we didn't get it done before your visit but thank you for your honesty-we take your comments seriously and have made improvements. It is true, there are 3 cats on the property. We are neighbors to an open field and without them we would have mice. We strive to keep them away from folks with allergies or dislike, but because so many love on them they are very affectionate. We ask that guests not encourage them to come inside for this reason.

Very Quaint Bed and Breakfast

4.0 on July 21, 2016

Felt very safe at this property and it was very quiet. The rooms were generous and comfortable. The breakfast was good, and they made you feel like part of their family.

Innkeeper Response
So glad you were comfortable here. Come again soon!

A warm and welcoming inn

4.2 on July 16, 2016

Next time you are in the Lexington area be sure to visit this quaint, welcoming inn. The innkeeper Pam is very accommodating and our young family (with children ages 4.5 and 2.5) had a great time in the spacious Tara suite. Breakfasts in the morning are delicious and huge, and there are board games and other activities in the inn as well to pass the time in the evening or a rainy day. If you are a cat lover there are several in the house, and very friendly. I have cat allergies but didn't have any issues, as the inn is kept clean and the cats aren't allowed in the guest rooms. Highly recommend you visit.

Innkeeper Response
Awww, thank you! We enjoyed your family! We do have 3 cats, indoor/outdoor. For those with allergies, the English Suite is on the wing with a private entrance and hard surfaced floors. We strive to keep the Inn allergy friendly and have an Oreck air purifier available on request. The original house is now 106 and has been home to many pets over the decades. They also help keep the mice from the neighboring field away. For those with children, it is helpful to contact us, and we will assist you in choosing a suite. There are times (during the horse races) that we discourage small children. Lots of grownup activity and a very full inn inhibit the ability to provide a child friendly atmosphere. But most of the time it's a wonderful family home away from home.

Charming inn -- and amazing breakfast

4.8 on July 14, 2016

My boyfriend and I spent one night in the Fox Trot room while making our way through the Bourbon Trail and thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the ca 1911 Montgomery Inn. The room was comfortable and well-decorated with antique furnishings, and we were more than happy to take advantage of the in-suite Jacuzzi and "thirsty" bathrobes. The charming front porch is equipped with a swing and plenty of sitting areas to relax with a bottle of wine. As has been mentioned by other reviewers, the inn is situated in a residential neighborhood -- but it's also quite convenient to the quaint little downtown area of Versailles, only a half-mile from the town center. Pam, the innkeeper was a delight, and we stayed up late talking on the back porch and hearing of her past and future adventures -- a brave, fascinating, and accomplished woman. The breakfast we received in the morning far exceeded our expectations and -- since it was a Wednesday and we were the only ones there -- the meal was customized to our tastes. We left full and well-rested.

Signature Dish

Pamela's Homemade Granola
Wonderfully buttery and cinnamony crunch, we serve it atop our yogurt parfait, but it is equally good as a snack mix or cereal, easy cobbler topping or over icecream! Mix together old fashioned oats, cinnamon, brown sugar, pich of salt, and favorite broken nuts (we like pecans). Drizzle with melted butter, spread out thin on a jellyroll pan and toast & stir until gently browned. Will crisp as it cools. Yum! Try adding dried cranberries or raisins, too.
