Gorgeous mansion catering to anyone considering a trip to Lexington. Close to all attractions and gracious hosts make it extra- special with touches like Bourbon in your room and a delicious breakfast spread.

The best B&B we have stayed at in a very long time. Amazing hospitality and great location! Enjoyed feeding the horses and walking the beautiful grounds. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful and the owners, Jerry and Christy were genuine and sincere.. Would definely recommend to anyone looking for a romantic getaway. Can't wait to come back next year!

We chose this B&B from reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. Located in a fairly new home on a "Gentleman's Horse Farm" it is right in the middle of horse country. It is a bit out in the country so you have to drive to any restaurant or attraction but this is one of the benefits of staying here.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at this wonderful establishment last night. We were so pleased with the facility, the room and the service. We were taken away wonderfully by the scenery also. I am a Kentucky native and grew up here in Lexington, and this was a wonderful experience to bring my girlfriend for the first time to Lexington. We... More

We stayed at this property for one night and found the area to be beautiful. The owner keeps several horses and they will come right up to the fence at the end of the pasture to check you out for treats. There are three very cute and friendly dogs on the property, too. An animal lover will enjoy this B&B... More

Christy and Jerry are wonderful hosts the three nights my husband and myself spent there we felt as though this beautiful property as our home away from home. Such a wonderful experience the accommodation is huge. We loved the Bourbon room our souvenir gift which we enjoyed in the rotunda. Jerry spent time with us explaining his regime with his... More

We had a great time. The upstairs master was spacious to say the least with great views of horse farms all around. Breakfast was delightful as well. Christie treated us like family. I guess we'll get to meet Jerry next time.We'll be back.

I found Essence of the Bluegrass on TripAdvisor and respected the ratings but 5 stars doesn't do it justice. It is in the heart of Bluegrass country and Jerry even has some horses (that Christie doesn't ride). Having been to Kentucky (the most underrated state in the nation) a number of times, I found Essence of the Bluegrass to be... More

Essence of the Bluegrass was exactly what we came to Kentucky for! Christie and Jerry were very friendly, accommodating and laid back. We enjoyed the yummy cookies, and the complementary sample of Makers Mark that we're left for our enjoyment in our very clean room. The house was amazing, yet comfortable. We were able to enjoy the complementary coffee, juice,... More
