This was the final night to a eight day trip, before heading back home. Plus a surprise B & B stay, not your regular Hotel/Motel. We deserved a great place for the last night and found it.... We were thoroughly satisfied with the feel and enjoyable ambiance of the Rocking Horse and reception from Adrian. The great hospitality extended from... More

All of our former trips to Louisville have been in the winter months and I was not sure how Louisville would look in the summer. When the opportunity presented itself to find out, I found the description of a Bed & Breakfast which sounded extremely interesting. The pictures of the home were beautiful and we quickly made our reservations! When... More

Loved our stay. Adrian took wonderful care of us. Lovely bed and breakfast in "Old Louisville". Close to downtown and the university. My husband and I would stay here again. We stayed in the " Louise Country Cottage" room. Very comfortable king bed. Good size room with plenty of space.

This is what a Bed and Breakfast should be. A very nice and well kept and meticulously maintained historic Louisville Mansion. This B&B is located in the “Old Louisville” portion of town along with all the other wonder mansions in this area. The Inn keepers are very inviting but are not intrusive to your privacy. They seem to know when... More

Each time I am in Louisville, I stay at Rocking Horse Manor. The B&B is in a beautiful building and is well managed. On this trip, my spouse accompanied me and very much enjoyed the stay. The B&B is well situated. It's within walking distance of Central Park and Old Louisville as well as downtown (Hotel Brown, et al).There's ample... More

My husband and I had a very pleasant stay at the Rocking Horse Manor! Adrian was a welcoming stand-in host while the owners were away. The home is beautiful and has been lovingly restored. Our room was very comfortable, furnished with period decor and contained all the amenities. The private bath was roomy and well stocked. Adrian's breakfast the next... More

We are not usually the B&B type but a place like the Rocking Horse could be the start of a new appreciation for this style of lodging. Adrian is an excellent stand in host - made us feel right at home and cooked us a most delicious breakfast. The rooms with high ceilings, four poster bed, period light fixtures and... More

The Rocking Horse Manor B&B is a beautiful house fully decorated with antiques. There are rocking horses and many many other lovely details all over the place. The host was very kind and attentive, the food was great and the rooms very comfortable and delicately decorated. Besides, the B&B has a great location, very close to many touristic attractions.

What a fun surprise the place was it is located in Old Louisville and is done up beautifully. The hosts are very knowledgable about the home, the history of the area send all the places. It was so wonderfully different from sell those regular cookie cutter hotels! We actually had the pleasure of staying in the turret room. If you... More
