Our first B&B stay was perfect!

We had no trouble finding it & access was great. We saw deer in the fields and hummingbirds frequented the porch. The views are breathtaking. The innkeepers, Dave & Karen, were very pleasant & easy going. We felt like old friends! Our room was cozy & we looked forward to relaxing after our days full of sightseeing. Breakfast was amazing & they handled my food allergy too. Coffee was really good. There are multiple tables & you can sit alone or with others to eat. The town of Lexington is a couples minutes away but you'd never know it. It was peaceful. There are many good restaurants nearby. We had everything we could need & more! Great place!

A Peaceful Place To Get Away

We enjoyed our stay in the charming bed and breakfast. Our host, Karen and Dave, made us feel right at home and were a wealth of information about the area. The room was comfortable and inviting. The views off of their many porches was breathtaking. The breakfasts were dome of the best we have ever had and top that off with a beautiful view each morning with your breakfast and you just can't beat it. We definitely will return.

What a great experience!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Brierley Inn. Dave and Karen couldn't be nicer, and did everything possible to ensure that we had wonderful stay. The Inn is lovely, breakfast was great, and Karen and Dave are delightful people. I would highly recommend staying there! J Burner

Hospitality meets Serenity

I stayed with David and Karen as part of a motorcycle vacation, with no ambitions other than to decompress after a tough year...couldn't have made a better choice. The peaceful atmosphere coupled with the (seemingly) effortless hospitality by the Innocents left me feeling more relaxed and stress free than I've felt in a long time. The hosts are also motorcycle enthusiasts, and were able to suggest a beautiful ride that I wouldn't have otherwise experienced, which was greatly appreciated. The "Once upon a time" room was amazingly comfortable; the breakfasts are hearty and delicious; and the porch looking out over the mountains is so relaxing that I found it hard to leave. Now that I'm home, I'm eager to return. Lexington and the Brierley Hill B&B are my new favorite mountain destinations.

Wonderful B&B

This was the most wonderful bed & breakfast we have stayed in. Everything was top notch and beyond our expectations. The setting is gorgeous; the house is fabulous; the breakfast was scrumptious; but the hosts were the most friendly, helpful, accommodating, enthusiastic and personable people you'd ever want to meet. They treat you like family. This was such a wonderful experience. We only wish we could have enjoyed it longer. Thank you Karen and Dave. We wish you the best of everything. Lynda & Bob
