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

Essence of the Bluegrass is a wonderful B&B in which to stay while exploring the horse & bourbon country of Kentucky. We spent 4 nights in the master suite upstairs. The room is very comfortable and clean. Christie & Jerry are extremely friendly and accommodating. They invite you to come & go as you please. The kitchen is open and... More

Essence of Bluegrass is a top notch place to stay in Lexington. In beautiful horse country with several horses right in the back pasture to enjoy. The home is beautiful and elegantly furnished. We stayed in the Equine room and enjoyed the outside door. We had the use of the whole downstairs including lots of snacks and drinks. The breakfast... More

The property was gorgeous. You feel the tranquility of being in horse country with horse farms and bluegrass surrounding you. The house is a spectacle itself, giving average folk the chance to experience how the wealthy 1% of our population live. Each room was unique with the suites being of superior quality, however unnecessary as the home is so large... More

My husband made arrangements for staying here when we cycled in the Horsey Hundred this past Memorial day weekend. What a great place to stay while exploring the area. On the second day we cycled right from the B&B. The owners are really friendly, we had the run of the house which I used since I got up early and... More
