I stayed at Essence of the Bluegrass in November. I hadn't gotten around to writing a review but, just now, I thought, where could I go to getaway and relax? My mind turned immediately to Essence. When I made my reservation in November all the rooms were booked except for the suite. So Jerry was kind enough to upgrade my... More

We made it to our room a few hours after our wedding in east Kentucky. The rooms are gorgeous and the beds are fantastic. We met our hosts the next morning while enjoying a hearty breakfast. Afterwards we sipped on coffee (with a little bourbon, it is KY after all) and played chess. The home itself is large and spacious... More

Essence of the Bluegrass felt like our home as we spent a lovely week, exploring Lexington and Keeneland. Thank you, Christie and Jerry, for your cordial and genuine hospitality. You helped us find the resources we were looking for: Old Friends ranch and Wise Choice tack shop. And, Christie, your home-made breakfasts were fabulous. Oh! Desserts for breakfast are the... More

This was our second stay at Essence of the Bluegrass, we stayed 6 nights and had a wonderful time. Every evening we looked forward to coming "home" to the B&B, it is such a beautiful house and in the most perfect location with so much gorgeous scenery and plenty of privacy. We look forward to staying again and wouldn't wish... More

Fabulous! Relaxing! Gorgeous! My husband and I were planning a little weekend getaway stumbled upon this place on the internet, and we are so happy we did. There are four beautiful rooms to choose from and we stayed in the Keeneland room. It was absolutely stunning. Spacious, clean, relaxing, pampered, romantic.... Perfect. Christie and Jerry are amazing hosts. Genuinely wonderful... More

My wife and I stay in many B&B's - this one rightfully earns all 5 stars! We found our room to be CLEAN, well kept and very private. We stayed at Essence of the Bluegrass for our 12th anniversary and wanted to be near to the horse park - it couldn't have been a more perfect combination. I also appreciated... More

Two more gracious, warm people you couldn't meet than Christie and Jerry at Essence. Their home is just plain gorgeous: our room was immaculate with a super comfortable bed--and the surroundings are beautiful horse-country. The quiet at night was remarkable. We didn't need such abundant breakfasts but many wouldn't complain about that. A BIG Plus: We lost our Visa card... More

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights. The food was delicious, the entire house clean, and the owners were wonderful. I would definitely stay here again. It was a great representation of Kentucky. Horses, horses, horses!!

Lexington in October is beautiful and the Essence of the Bluegrass was the perfect anchor point for our travels in the region. Six miles north of downtown, this elegant yet friendly B&B is located in the country side surrounded by green paddocks and painted fences and provided a real sense of place for us. To wake up in the morning... More
