I stay in hotels over 200 nights per year. I think that qualifies me as a professional traveler. After awhile all those long hallways start to look alike. Not Bashford Manor. As soon as I walked in the door I felt at home. No long hallways! LOL. The smell of fresh baked apple pie really got my attention. The charm... More

Verg quiet, clean and is convenient to shopping and more. This historic house is beautifully decorated and is gorgeous inside and out. The rich history and attention to detail set this place apart. The owners are very welcoming and have made sure I have been well taken care of. I would highly recommend staying here.

The Bashford Manor had what I was looking for and more: history, classic and well-kept rooms, and a charming, hospitable owner. From the moment I set foot inside, I knew I made the right decision for my Louisville stay. And because I was an extended stay, my experience is assuredly reflective of what this B&B offers on a day-to-day basis.... More

Stayed there as a "stay-cation" over my birthday weekend. Was lucky with the timing of my visit, because a storm earlier that week had knocked out the power to my house and the electric company said it wouldn't be be fully fixed till the following Monday. So it was nice to be somewhere clean with heat, lights, tv, and internet.... More

No one to greet us & we walked around aimlessly for 45min until bumping into someone. Did not expect for our room to be given away, which was picked out only because I wanted the experience to stay in that historic room. We were moved out to the carriage house, which they said was just renovated. The bathtub was filthy,... More

We welcome feedback, finding it unusual to see this review/entry in January for a stay? last March. If you were here, called with eta as requested and told us about any complaint, we would remediate it immediately. The Carriage House is a favorite. Ky Derby guests love the ambience, private entrances & covered porches plus the individual kitchenettes, bathrooms and... More

This historic farmhouse (more than 200 years old) was a welcome retreat during a busy trip to Louisville in October. We could enjoy imagining its gracious past without having to give up any of our modern comforts. Cynthia has created a wonderful place to stay while preserving a part of Louisville history. She is deeply knowledgeable about the entire area... More

Thank you for staying with us for the 2014 Run Foe The Roses! We enjoyed reading of your appreciation of this award winning renovation of this national historic landmark. Two books and other publications in 2014 feature The Bashford Manor. This year looks ahead as a movie location. Thank you for this opportunity to respond. More

There is so much history associated with the Bashford Manor Bed and Breakfast. So enjoyed meeting Cynthia and learning about her journey with the Bray Farm which is now the Bashford Manor Bed and Breakfast. Wonderful breakfasts. We had a wonderful stay, even extended our stay.

Stayed at this B&B in June, our first time, and it was perfect! Privacy, beautiful accommodations, delicious breakfast,entertaining host, and minutes from the eclectic Bardstown Road. We will definitely make another stop at Bashford Manor.
