Sitting in the bourbon bar (there is a beer bar on the other side of the property) eating a bourbon flavored Rib Eye steak cooked perfectly with southern green beans and garlicky mashed potatoes slowly sipping a Makers Mark 46 in the middle of Bourbon country is what life is meant to be. Talbotts has it history of famous travelers... More

The Daniel Boone room was okay. The room was clean. The hotel as advertised was built in the 1700s however, they had a fire a few years back and the rooms have been remodeled. It did not seem charming and quaint like a bed-and-breakfast at all.

We stayed here for a couples weekend and visited a couple of distilleries. I did not think this hotel would be fancy in any way, but was hoping it would be better than I expected. Unfortunately, it was not. The best way to describe this hotel is "Average." We stayed as a group renting 3 rooms. My wife and I... More

While visiting Kentucky's Bourbon and Wine Trial and visiting the countryside, I stayed in the Abraham Lincoln Suite. The rich historical site was chock full of antiques, a comfy bed & a balcony for smokers. We ate dinner in the Tavern and it was a scrumptious chicken pot pie. We saw no ghosts, but that was ok. Passersby hailed you... More

While on the Bourbon Trail in Kentucky we stayed at the historic Old Talbott Tavern. Abe Lincoln stayed here with his family when he was 7 years old. Daniel Boone, Jesse James, and others had also spent time there. It is said that you may see the ghost of Jesse James but he didn't stop by to see us. The... More

Well - unknown to us at the time of planning our vacation, there was a huge FFA convention in town. Almost all the rooms were booked and the nearest one we found was ll the way in Lexington. We were still completing our Bourbon Trail and stopped in here after a tour, and I thought: Heck, why not ask if... More

We had amazing service from Kaitlin! She answered all of our silly out of Towner questions. The food was great! I love the ranch and bbq sauce!!! Everything was delicious and the service was great! Thank you for making our experience very enjoyable!

We recently spent a couple of days in the Bourbon capital of the world, Bardstown, KY. We chose to stay in the center of it all, at the The Old Talbott Tavern (and bed and breakfast). We weren't sure what to expect given the age of the building, but were pleasantly surprised at the decor and comfort of the room.... More

We ate here in May for lunch while we were on the bourbon trail. I got the cheeseburger and fries and they were delicious and if I remember correctly the gf got a NLT and she was satisfied. The food came out nice and hot and the service was on par.

My family ate here often when I was growing up, so I was very excited to bring my granddaughter back to the Talbott. I booked the General's Quarter's Room, because it had town canopy beds, and I knew she would love the "princess" beds. The room was very large and comfortable, but the bathroom was really tiny. That didn't bother... More
