This was a last minute, one-night addition to our family summer trip to Gatlinburg (from Indiana), and SO worth the stop. In fact, we definitely would have stayed had we not had other plans! This is a beautifully renovated bed and breakfast offering major appeal to any horse-loving soul. Our 17-year old daughter was in Heaven with the facilities and... More

This place is hard to beat. Jason is very accommodating and makes you feel right at home. The horses are beautiful and you are welcome to go into the very clean stable. We enjoyed it so much that we returned to it on our trip back west.

My daughter and I had a wonder visit. The Eighth Pole Inn has been recently updated and is very modern. Beautiful house and grounds. We enjoyed sitting by the fire pit and meeting new friends. Breakfast was very good. We will surely be making a visit back hopefully soon!

We have done a great deal of traveling and visited many B & B's. Most of the time we felt like strangers in someone's home. Not here at Eighth Pole Inn. The most inviting and relaxing B & B experience ever. Our host Jason made us feel as if we were part of his family!

Having placed a review on a similar site I thought I would re-post on TripAdvisor as this place is so special. Spent 2 nights here with my wife in June as part of a road trip through Kentucky and Tennessee and there is something magical about Eighth Pole Inn. Even if horses are not your bag you cannot fail to... More

We stayed here 6/27-29 and enjoyed every minute! The elegance and comfort of the inn surpasses many luxury places we have stayed at in the past. Jason Sciortino, owner/partner, was gracious and shared with us his passion for the thoroughbred. We loved being on a working farm recently renovated with such care and love for not only the guest but... More

My husband and I stayed here as we were touring Lexington for bourbon distilleries. I had booked thinking that it would be not as nice as the other bed and breakfast we would stay in Bardstown, however I was very surprised to see the whole place had been renovated. The place was beautiful from the rooms to the scenery of... More

I stayed at the Inn on my way to Asheville for my daughter's wedding. The grounds were so beautiful and relaxing. I know nothing about horse racing but I appreciated the beauty of the horses. The decor and furnishings were top notch. It felt a little weird being the only guest (Monday night) but I appreciated that Jason told me... More
