We had an absolutely wonderful stay at A Storybook Inn. Our only regret was that we did not stay longer. We booked one night as we were traveling further, but as soon as we arrived, we wanted more time. Elise and Angie were welcoming and gracious. The inn is absolutely beautiful and so tastefully decorated. The grounds are relaxing and inviting. Our room had all the accommodation of home, plus more, with extra refreshments available and accessible from our room. The conservatory is breathtaking, and the breakfast absolutely delicious as well as healthful. Staff not only answered questions about the food, but showed us particular ingredients about which we had asked. There are beautiful horse farms in the area we would like to visit, and when we return, it will be to stay at A Storybook Inn. Elise, you are the hostess with the mostest!
We stayed for one night in this fabulous historic B&B, it was in a lovely quiet area, the drive here via Paris was incredibly beautiful. Our host Allysha was so lovely and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay and had lots of great recommendations for a future visit when we have more time to explore the area. The home was very clean and comfortable, with a great breakfast and evening treats. We will definitely be returning!
True, heart-felt hospitality, these ladies go above and beyond. Our room was absolutely the best We've ever had (The Garden Suite) Beds are so comfortable and everything is set up just perfect. They cater to pretty much anything you require and the breakfast was the best we had on our entire trip (probably our last 5 trips combined) The grounds are beautiful and relaxing. The drive in to this place is amazing as well. I wish I could put this review in to better words, but hopefully this will suffice. Truly amazing experience.
Beautiful place and away from the big cities.Very relaxing and private. We loved the visit and the breakfast was awesome too. Our host Allysha was wonderful and informative. We definitely want a return trip from Cincinnati. Thank you !
This B&B was excellent and the host was so friendly and knowledgeable of this facility. We will definitely return in the future and will inform our friends and family of this great retreat. Phillip & Kathy
I surprised my wife with a weekend stay in the 'gone with the wind' room, and she absolutely loved it! The room was exactly what she likes with all of the memorabilia. The entire inn was very clean and the staff was very friendly. The breakfast was fresh and tasted great! We will hopefully be making this an annual birthday trip.
Words cannot say the relaxing feeling we get when we stay here. Elise understands what service means, and sets the standard very high. She is a gem. We never return to a place we have stayed before since there are so many places to see. This is our third stay in the past three years. It does not get better than this.
Our stay at the Denny House was such a positive experience! Paint Lick, KY is off the beaten path but a wonderful walk back into history. (They are working to restore the downtown historic buildings and will be opening a farm to table restaurant soon.) The Denny House is charming, the room and private bath are large beyond what one might expect or envision. The innkeeper is warm and personable. She also happens to be an excellent chef as our breakfast was delicious as well as beautifully presented. If you have the opportunity, please do not miss visiting this charming, charming B and B. We loved it!
This inn has raised the bar for other B&Bs and inns. For this visit we stayed in the guest house. We needed a rest. It was perfect. It was private. We were able to park right at the house. We were greeted with fresh flowers. There is a full kitchen and an open concept great room. The great room is the perfect setting for relaxing in soft and sinkable leather lounge chairs, and enjoying the beautiful appointments and fire place. The view to the outside is soothing and conducive to reading your favorite book. The deck off of the master bedroom is perfect for morning coffee Breakfast is always a 5-Star Masterpiece in the one-of-a-kind solarium. The topiary gardens and water falls sets the stage for an unforgettable meal. The main house is a rare gem. Expect the unexpected when you visit.
This is one of the great ones! A lovely, charming, peaceful, immaculate bed & breakfast. The staff are accommodating and gracious. The breakfasts and snacks were delicious, filling and creatively presented. A three-course breakfast and afternoon/evening snack left in the room to be enjoyed at leisure. Southern hospitality resides here and it was our pleasure to partake of it.
This is a top rate B &B! We've been to several over the years and this rates head and shoulders above the rest. Elise is a personable hostess. Everything is so clean. The food not only looks beautiful but tastes so yummy! The bed in My Fair Lady is the best bed ever!! The backyard is peaceful and relaxing while listening to the waterfalls and watching the birds. The house is tucked off the road where it's so quiet. Loved it!!!
Leave the city, the job, and the chaos behind. Drop your shoulders, eat extremely well, sleep soundly, and breathe. Don't think about booking this wonderful spot, just do it. - One of the Two Professors
We take a trip to Lexington, KY every spring, to tour the horse farms and stay at A Storybook Inn. Elise Buckley and her staff go above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and pampered! Each night there is a homemade treat waiting for us in our suite and each morning the made from scratch breakfasts are award worthy! We will never stay anywhere else! This is a 5-star inn.
I recently stayed at Ashford Acres Inn in the Magnolia Suite. Pictures do not do this B&B justice! My room was HUGE! The bathroom was beautifully renovated and had an amazing shower. My bed was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The sheets were amazing... I have already ordered some for my home! I was greeted by Annastasia Hicks who was absolutely lovely and informative. I even got to meet the chef who cooked the most delicious food I have ever had at any of my B&B stays. Portions were huge! I can't wait to go back and stay at Ashford Acres again! THANK YOU EVERYONE!
The Storybook Inn is as beautiful inside as it is outside. Our family of four recently stayed there and were thrilled with the location, service, comfort and hospitality of Elise and her team - Jim and Sue. The accommodations were beautiful and comfortable and the full breakfast was delicious! We recommend this Bed & Breakfast in Versailles, KY. It really is a storybook setting and experience! Lori, Dan, Cody, Isabelle
This is our second visit to this stunningly beautiful B&B. Elise and her staff provide first class service and gourmet breakfasts and treats in the room. We stayed in Somewhere in Time this trip. It was a large, elegant suite of rooms fit for royalty. A must stay on your next visit to Keeneland Race Track which is 5 mins down the road..
We loved our time at A Storybook Inn. Elise was a wonderful host as well as chef. The rooms are lavishly decorated, and yet they still have the little convenient touches, such as docking stations by the bed and on the desk and heated towels. The grounds are lovely and we were encouraged to enjoy walking or sitting there. The food was amazing! From the delightful cookies when we arrived (and convenient coffee/tea service nearby) to the blackberry blintzes at breakfast, it was all incredible. The conservatory addition is the perfect place for their delicious breakfasts—a light and airy place to begin our day. We highly recommend A Storybook Inn!
We were celebrating my wife's birthday, and she chose a stay at Ashford Acres. We were late checking in, but Annastasia, who operates Ashford Acres, was waiting and welcomed us with happiness, warmth and a generous spirit. The Bed and Breakfast is located in a historic Greek Revival antebellum home that has been restored to exceptional beauty, and appointed with authentic period antique furnishings. Decorated with style befitting it's place in history, the home features updates assuring guests a comfortable stay in every way, including full wifi access, USB charging stations for every phone and gadget, and a fully-featured HD Smart TV with digital entertainment package. We stayed in the Maple suite, with a large King-sized bed, spacious bathroom and an adjoining room with separate television, two daybeds and two trundle beds - perfect for a family and for privacy. Anastasia and her staff clearly recognized the meaningfulness of the celebration, and demonstrated thoughtfulness in every detail in advance of our arrival, including complimentary surprises one usually would only find in 5-star hotels familiar with their VIP guests. Yes, we were treated that special! And, by the way, I'm guessing you will never find sheets and bedding softer, or more luxurious, in any hotel. Full, traditional breakfast for the entire family, executed with the highest quality, was included. I have stayed in B&Bs since my childhood, including famous ones of historical importance. However, for comfort, quality, service, friendliness and taste, this was the best! Ashford Acres is clearly a work of love, first and foremost. Whether you are looking for a restful, romantic or family weekend getaway, a picture-perfect venue for your wedding or other important event, or a unique place to entertain family, friends or co-workers for a meal, I recommend Ashford Acres highly!
6 of us from 36 yrs to 58 yrs. mothers and daughters stayed 3 nights. It was refreshing and so relaxing. Elise is the most outstanding hostess. All of the food was divine. Even though it is in town it is very quiet and secluded. A wonderful experience. I was regenerated.
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.
My boyfriend and I just got back from Barb's and started planning our next trip while we were still there. Our experience was the best we could have asked for and then some. Barb and the girls were phenomenal; always making sure we were comfortable and happy. The food. Absolutely amazing. Not only do they cook everything fresh for you, they bring it right to you at the table and then clean up while Barb sits down with everyone exchanging stories about life and the Farm. Their motto is "You're on vacation, you shouldn't have to...". We stayed in "The Cottage with a View" and boy was it a view. The description on the website explains it to a tee. The front porch is the perfect way to start your morning, over looking the property with a cup of coffee or tea (which they generously provide) watching the fog roll in through the trees. While the back porch makes you feel like you're in a whole different cabin in the middle of the woods. Many, many thanks and lots of love to Barbara and her staff. We will definitely be back after the next two or five times of visiting Snug. There's no place like it. Molly and Dylan
From the moment we arrived and were met by Elise, to our final chat while turning in the keys, this amazing home felt like ours - yet at the same time, like we were at a resort. rooms, food, surprise sweets, decor, and that home-like feel - Elise understands customer-focus, but this experience is made possible because she simply lives what she believes. Take the time to be part of this Storybook!
This was the first time I've experienced staying at a bed and breakfast and now I wish I would have sooner. From the moment I arrived until the moment I left I felt like royalty. A Storybook Inn is such a beautiful place, the rooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable, the grounds have gorgeous scenery, and the dinning area where you get to enjoy an amazing breakfast is full of glass windows so you can also enjoy the views of outside. My experience while staying at A Storybook Inn definitely exceeded all expectations I had, I will absolutely be back for another stay.
My wife and I just celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and my birthday here. Elise and her staff are top notch through and through.Cannot imagine a better Bed and Breakfast anywhere. Elise's cooking and southern charm is off the chart.Third time staying and God willing will definitely be back. Glenn and Suzie
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.
