If you are a fan of B&Bs, and you are visiting Bardstown, Kentucky, treat yourself to a wonderful stay at the Beautiful Dreamer! Even though the building is approximately 20 years old, it combines charm with more up-to-date amenities. Within walking distance is Kurtz restaurant. Very enjoyable.

Dan and Lynell (owners) provided wonderful Kentucky hospitality. Their home is specious, beautifully appointed and in such a convenient location to shopping, the bourbon trail, restaurants, and historical landmarks. We will be back!! Over the top breakfasts and amenities!

This place was amazing. It is everything a B&B should be. It was impeccably clean, charming, comfortable, decorated beautifully, ideally located for the Bourbon Trail. The view of My Old Kentucky Home was lovely especially at night. The hostess is a fantastic cook and the host told great stories.

We have been staying at the Beautiful Dreamer for many years. Dan & Lynell Ginter are wonderful hosts (gracious and accommodating) - providing not only a beautiful, restful home but a breakfast that is second to none! You will not be disappointed in any of the rooms...but the "Beautiful Dreamer" is absolutely the best.

Very comfortable and well kept accommodations. The couple running this B&B was so helpful and welcoming. The breakfast was to die for and the conversation at the table engaging. Convenient across the street walk to a restaurant. Short drive to nearby distilleries if that is your inclination. It was a very pleasant stay. I would give it a high recommendation.

My husband and I spent 2 nights here celebrating our 1st anniversary. The house was beautiful and the hosts were so friendly. Breakfast was delicious. It was our first time at a bed and breakfast, but wont be our last!

The Beautiful Dreamer is a first class B & B run by a couple who give it their all. Our room was spacious, the bed huge and comfortable, and the Jacuzzi almost big enough for two. Breakfast was delicious. Although the inn is located on a main drag, we had no issues with the traffic even though our room faced... More

Great location. Great rooms. Good people that were very helpful. They had menus of all local restaurants. They showed us around the house. It was built especially to be a B&B and it shows. The breakfast was family style and very well done. We will stay here again.

We stayed four nights in June 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We had the Stephen Foster Room which is on the first floor. It features a whirlpool bath for two plus a shower. The room is very tastefully decorated based on a Stephen Foster theme. The breakfasts were excellent with something different every day. Snacks and cold drinks are... More
