Charming, historic manse located in downtown Louisville with the most hospitable innkeeper, Ricardo. We spent two enjoyable nights in the Selliger Anniversary Suite and cannot wait to return. We highly recommend this establishment. In addition to the building's classic charm and character, the service is impeccable and the two-course home-made gourmet breakfast is sumptuous. Ricardo went above and beyond to... More

This was my first experience at a B&B and I could not be happier. We stayed three nights while in Louisville and were so sad to go. The manor has such a rich history and the architecture is absolutely stunning. Furthermore, the price is amazing. This is within walking distance of 4th Street Live and a very short cab or... More

we stayed here for one night on a road trip to Ohio. We could not have picked a better place. Ricardo was a great host who gave us a wonderful tour. he had answers to our questions and had great recommendations. breakfast the next morning was yummy. my only regret is that we were only there one night.

Love this B&B! Worth every penny spent. You will not find a more inviting, unique B&B. Make sure and tour the house and garden. Ricardo, one of the owners, makes you feel like family as soon as you step in the door. Looking forward to every future trip to Louisville so we can stay here!

This is the coziest and most comfortable bed and breakfast I have ever stayed in (and I have staying in quite a few)! The house itself is amazing in it's architecture and history. Ricardo was the most gracious host and took wonderful care of me even anticipating what I might need. He even came in and tidied up my room... More

My fiancée and I had a weekend without kids, not wanting to travel too far from home we decided to tour Louisville. Rocking Horse Manor was exquisite. We stayed in the Victorian Suite, which was absolutely phenomenal, exceeding all our expectations! Our host, John, was amazing as well. We will certainly be returning on our next escape!

We were making a quick trip through Louisville and only staying for one night but we wished that we had more time. The Rocking Horse B&B was fantastic! Ricardo was a wonderful host, giving us a quick tour and history of the house. The woodwork and high ceilings are absolutely gorgeous. Our room was clean and comfortable and everything was... More

We have stayed at the Rocking horse for 6 years straight, would not go anywhere else! We are in the area for business, but returning nightly to the B&B feels so relaxing and inviting you have the sense that it is your own warm and comfortable place. Nothing is ever an issue for them and they do put on quiet... More

Ricardo is an incredible host - he truly makes you feel at home in the sprawling manor and helps you find things to do in Louisville (he told us about Cave Hill Cemetary which was our favorite stop while there). He was very interesting to get to know (he is well travelled - ask him!) and just an absolute joy... More

Talk about pleasant surprises! We had heard from a friend that they had heard the Rocking Horse Manor was a good place to stay but that they had had no personal experience themselves. We took a chance and booked a night stay. The Inn is easy to find, just South of downtown Louisville in the 3rd Street Historical Renovation area.... More
