We stayed at the Red Rose in for only one night while on the famous Bourbon Trail in Kentucky. The accommodations were very clean and the hostess was kind and very non-intrusive. The breakfast was delicious and the bed was very comfortable. The room we stayed in (Violet Room) was one of the smaller rooms in the house, but it... More

Audrey is a remarkable and interesting person who made us feel special and comfortable. There were fresh cookies waiting for us when we arrived and breakfast was delicious and plentiful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Although there was a nice dining room, there was no common area to sit and relax in.

Audrey is a wonderful cook (and patient with directions and advice on where to find dinner). Breakfast included an omelette aux asperges, hash browns, fresh juice, a generous fruit bowl, and hot breakfast rolls.

This is an older property run lovingly by Audrey a spry and interesting older woman. The house is decorated just like your favorite older aunt may have decorated but everything is clean and comfortable. The location in Bardstown is perfect - within walking distance to the center. Breakfast was terrific and so were the homemade cookies and snacks always available.... More

We liked staying here, everything was nice and clean and breakfast was very good. The room decor was a little cheesy for us. Overall we would stay here again but might try another place as well. We stayed on a Friday.

2nd visit to the Red Rosé Inn. Bardstown is a quaint town whose popularity increases every year due to an event called the Boubon Festival. Amongst all the hustle and bustle the Red Rosé Inn remains the key to Southern Hospitality. Breakfast this morning was Fruit, Chocolate Chip/Banana Cake, Sausage in Rye Rolls and Peach French Toast all homemade by... More

Spent one Saturday night in the Inn. It is just like going to a favorite relatives house. It is so warm and inviting. The rooms are comfortable and homey. The breakfast is truly gourmet and wonderful, cooked from scratch by the innkeeper, Audrey. She is a true gem, just a delight and a wonderful cook! She is over retirement age... More

I searched TripAdvisor (as always) and flipped a coin over which B&B to choose. I am so glad I picked Red Rose Inn... and got to meet Audrey (& Rosie & Wrigley). I stayed in the yellow Garden Room, which was lovely... complete with homey touches. Almost everything in town is within walking distance and Audrey has local menus &... More

My husband and I spent our 20th Anniversary in this lovely and charming Bed & Breakfast. Audrey was so kind, she really did make us feel right at home. The room was perfect and the breakfasts were out of this world. I wish we could have stayed for a week. Thank you Audrey for being the perfect hostess. I can't... More
