The reviews have generally been very good for this B&B, but we were not impressed. Others have commented how good the breakfasts were. They must not stay at many B&Bs because the breakfasts were very ordinary. The owner, a very nice gentleman, who runs the house, bought it in 1976, extensively renovated it, but now it feels tired and in... More

EVERYTHING in this place looks like it should be in a museum. It's absolutely stunning. "Opulent" was the word that kept coming to mind when we wandered around. The owner is a delightful man with great stories about the house. I could have listened all day if I didn't have other plans. The young man who helped out with the... More

The owner and staff were fabulous. Very clean beautiful home filled with antiques and Derby memorabilia. Formal dining breakfast with dishes served up Kentucky bourbon style! Yummy fruit dip and whipped topping. This B&B is full of grace and charm. Will visit again!

I go to Louisville on a regular basis for work, and this is my inn of choice. The grandiosity of the place is amazing in its own right, but the staff are all great too. Rudy, the owner, is a wealth of knowledge and Jason, the assistant, was a pleasure to talk to. He gave us a great recommendation for... More

This Victorian Bed And Breakfast is just amazing! From the huge home (20,000 square feet!) to the contents are just unbelieveable! Rudy, the innkeeper and owner, is a wonderful man who gives you free rein of the home to explore at your delight! The breakfast is scrumptious and he is a trup joy to visit with! Rooms are amazing and... More

My friend and I stayed here in order to visit the homes on the Holiday Home tour. This place is more beautiful than most of the homes on the tour. We had a relaxing stay in the General Lawton suite. Breakfast was decadent both mornings, and the bourbon sauce on the marinated fruit is truly delicious. Rudy and crew are... More

We stayed here recently while doing the Bourbon Tour and really enjoyed our stay. The owner and staff were friendly, talkative, and helpful. Our room (the presidents room) was nice and big. The house is decorated nicely and has some really interesting pieces. Our breakfast was really good, and featured bourbon sauces in some dishes- a perfect pairing for our... More

I'm so glad we happened upon this mansion in the heart of Old Louisville. It has been kept as close to original as possible. The furnishings, window dressings and entire decor are of the period. Breakfast was fabulous as was the host, Rudy, and his assistant Jason. Maggie, the little dog was a sweet and friendly greeter as we came... More

We stayed at the Samuel Culbertson with our 4 yr old recently . This B&B was very nice and spacious. It is located about mid way between the waterfront and the university. The breakfasts were well prepared and very tasty. They paid particular attention to our little girls tastebuds. The artifacts within the hotel are all antiques, it is well... More

In our first visit to Louisville, my wife booked us into this charming historic B&B. As we both appreciate history and art, this lovingly restored mansion exceeded all of our expectations. It's a grand dame of an established neighborhood, and to walk through the front door is to step back into the rich history of the area. Since our trip... More
