Outstanding in every way!

Innkeepers are very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious and the bed was very comfortable. A lot of extras, such as a very friendly dog, copious snacks, a beautiful view, and nearness to Mammoth Cave Park. I reserved the room a month or more prior to my stay, and they didn't even charge my credit card until the day I left! I recommend them highly!

Wonderful quiet getaway

This was my first BB experience in twenty years, but I cannot say enough good things about Serenity Hill... Location is quiet, owners are great folks, bed was comfy, rooms clean, its nice to hang out in living room or on front porch in the evening and breakfast was amazing and different every morning...

Truly a ten out of ten!

Richard and Stephanie have perfected the art of bed & breakfast hosts. They are low-key, professional and friendly all at once. Their home is impeccably maintained inside and out. The rooms are very pretty and extremely clean; the grounds are beautifully landscaped; and breakfast was generous and absolutely delicious. Serenity Hill is located a short scenic drive from the Mammoth Cave visitor center. We are so glad we stayed - highly recommend!

My son is biking cross country and came upon Serenity Hill Bed and Breakfast. The owners Richard and Stephanie treated my son like family!! They gave him a room and food and made him borrow their pick up truck to drive to the caves. I want to thank them for taking care of my son. I'm a nervous wreck as it is that he is doing this. So if you are ever in this area, stay here.

Beautiful B & B and Wonderful Hosts!

We stayed 3 nights and it was the best weekend getaway we've ever had. Serenity Hill is a beautiful home and Rich & Steph are the most welcoming hosts ever! We had the suite and it was amazing! The bed was so comfortable we had a hard time getting up each morning! Steph is an amazing cook, each meal was perfect! And the cookies in the room each day were a great treat. It was such a friendly home enviroment. Even eating with strangers was a treat. Richard worked hard to make sure we knew all the places to visit while we were there. We were rained out of serveral actitives but Serentiy Hill made it easy to still enjoy the weekend! Love the porch! Thanks again Steph and Richard! Hope to see you soon! Mary & Anthony

Father's Day Weekend Getaway

Greeted as if we were family by Rick, Stephanie, Oreo and their family and other guests. Delicious cookies freshly baked and in our rooms both days. Our rooms were spotless & our beds cozy & comfy. It was a friendly atmosphere at breakfast discussing with other guests the adventures they had the day before. Rick was always helpful in suggesting places to visit or restaurants for dinner. We had a lovely time. Can't wait to visit again soon! You won't be disappointed. Melinda, Terry & Sara

Rick & Stephanie are absolutely amazing! They opened their B&B to a group of 20 Eagle Scouts riding their bikes across the country! We could not have asked for a more generous couple that accommodated our every want and need! They made our journey possible and memorable. I can't wait to return!

Incredible hospitality & best lodging at Mammoth Cave

5 on April 02, 2015

Rick and Stephanie are endearing hosts and owners of Serenity B&B. Beautiful location in the hills, bordering the southern edge of Mammoth Cave National Park (and an easy 15 minute drive to the park center). The home has an expansive view of surrounding countryside. Very quiet. Room was immaculate with nice bathroom. Food was fantastic. For breakfast they served 3 courses: fruit cup; mushroom and asparagus frittata; fresh baked banana bread with glaze - incredible. But here's what floored me: As my daughter and I were running late, I left my coat with iPhone in the pocket in their living room as we left to catch an early morning cave tour. Rick sprung into action and drove the roughly 10 miles to the park center, located me in the bustle of school kids and other visitors to return my jacket in person. I have never in my life experienced such exemplary service at a B&B or hotel - my sincere gratitude to Rick and Stephanie for their willingness to go the extra 10 miles to make our visit perfect! As long as they are running Serenity B&B, we'll book our lodging there when we visit Mammoth Cave or just passing through! Thank you so very very much, Stephanie and Rick!

Honeymoon Getaway - What a wonderful experience!

What a wonderful first bed and breakfast experience! Serenity Hill is just as it is described: peaceful, an escape from the National Park bustle, and a great place to relax. Plus, we were pleasantly surprised by the abundance of hummingbirds who came to visit. Breakfast was delectable, and our hostess was nothing short of extraordinary. If you have yet to make a decision as to which place to stay while you visit Mammoth Cave, do not even hesitate. This is our #1 recommendation!

Mike and Brenda G stayed here for our 30 wedding anniversary 10 to 12 June 2013. We loved the place and had so much fun site seeing the area. We have shared this with many friends and other since then. We are sure to go back. The humming birds were so cool. You do feel like your at home. Debras recommendations to eat in the local area were good. We enjoyed probably the best service and cleanest Dairy Queen ever. The Mexican Resturaunt was also excellent. THANKS DEB

About the innkeepers

We are both retired from our previous occupations and decided inn-keeping would be an excellent opportunity for us. We moved here from Anchorage Alaska and really love the quiet and scenic beauty of the Kentucky countryside.
