This is a lovely historic hotel in a small College town. All students at Berea College are required to perform community service every week they are here. That service includes working in gift shops, working at the college, creating beautiful crafts that are sold in the small stores, etc. What a great way to learn community service! We bought one...

My husband and I were traveling home from a weekend getaway in the mountains, and we hit an unexpected snowstorm. We had to pull over at the first exit because the roads were becoming impassable, and we're so glad this is the area we ended up in. The staff were so pleasant and accommodating. The hotel is beautiful. The rooms... More

An extremely nice, clean and historic hotel with polite, professional and efficient staff. Beautiful common areas with a porch that would be great to relax on during the warmer months. Breakfast (part of a winter special) was outstanding.

This was my 1st time in a room that overlooked the park. It was a little noisy, but the king-sized bed was so comfortable that I slept through breakfast! I love how they make me feel so welcome every year. I had dinner in the restaurant with an old friend who lives nearby and she loved her pork chops and... More

Beautiful, historical hotel with extremely personable and pleasant staff. We stayed in room 215. Although the room was small, everything was clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. Very quiet. And we loved the old aspects of the hotel. Simply beautiful. And make sure you eat at their restaurant famous for the spoon bread. Fabulous. I had the twisty pork chops and... More

This is a lovely historic hotel. Traditionally furnished and comfortable public areas. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable room with lovely bathroom. LEED certified and I loved the 'green' touches. The only downside were the uncomfortable bed and very scratchy sheets. No fitness center as well. Definitely feels like you are stepping back in time when you stay here.

That was a very nice review thank you. We did want to tell you that while staying at the Boone Tavern you have access to the Seabury Center which has an Olympic sized pool, workout room, indoor track, tennis courts, racquett ball courts, and basketball courts. Next time you stay with us just ask the front desk about it! Hope... More
