Rooms kept unlocked, no key provided. Breakfast was eggs and bacon cooked by the horse trainer. Furnace malfunctioned, room was under 60 degrees. No employee available Saturday afternoon through our departure Sunday. No breakfast or coffee provided. We were promised a fire Saturday eve, but no one was available to make one. Snacks were a package of oreos, tootsie rolls... More

Enjoyed our time in Lexington, especially staying at Swann's Nest! The location is the best in the Commonwealth to go to Keeneland. It is also close to many of the other area attractions. The owners know where the best places to eat and will gladly make reservations for you. All in all, we go at least twice a year as... More

The house is on a great spot, not more than a couple miles (at most) from the back gate of Keeneland, so you can get in and out with no traffic. Easy to get to Lexington and the Bourbon Trail. This isn't a pampering kind of B&B, but it's comfortable. it reminds me more of traditional B&Bs, being a working... More

While this a great location for Keeneland Race Course, and we had a pleasant enough two night stay, we felt overall underwhelmed! On arrival we learnt that Rosalie who is glowingly mentioned on the website, is no longer there. Misleading, if that has influenced your decision to stay! Rooms are spacious and clean, however we were very aware of noise... More

We have been enjoying The Swann's Nest at Cygnet Farm for over a decade and don't hesitate for a moment recommending it to others. To be able to stay at a B&B on a thoroughbred horse farm just 5 minutes from the renowned Keeneland Race Course is priceless. In addition, the short drive to the track is on back roads... More

I have stayed at Swann's nest over the past several years during keeneland race season and it has proved to be my home away from home w many appealing amenities. I for one love the hospitality of the owner Rosalie herself and Jason whom now operates it. They make you feel extremely welcome! The history of this home and business... More

The location and setting of this property is spectacular. We stayed two nights during Race season at Keeneland. While our rooms were clean and comfortable, the rest of the house looks like it has seen better days. It could use a thorough cleaning (especially the kitchen) to get rid of greasy odor, cobwebs, dying plants, dirty surfaces and dust. Our... More

We stayed 2 nights and loved the place. Jason is a fantastic host and the setting is like out of a book. Relaxing and put together neatly and smartly in a place you can call "Home". Perfectly situated for Keenland and Jason tipped us off to some really nice restaurants. It makes you realize why you chose a B&B over... More

This was our first visit to Kentucky and found the location convenient to our Bourbon Festival itinerary. The property was stunning and charming as mentioned by other reviewers. Jason and Rosalie were most welcoming and provided us with helpful suggestions for touring the area. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable, with a balcony overlooking the garden. We found it... More

Superb property located just outside downtown Lexington so one is close to the action of the city but removed from the noise and pace. Rosalie and Jason proved great hosts and one felt immediately comfortable. The horses grazing over the 15 acres lending a perfect backdrop to what one would expect from a working horse farm and candidly I can't... More
