We stayed at the Rocking Horse Manor during a busy week of events in Louisville. It is a beautiful place, beautifully kept. A great bathroom, beautiful and peaceful backyard, and gorgeous living areas. Easy parking. The breakfast were amazing! The attention was superb! I would highly recommend this place.

This is a classic building, beautifully preserved, of old Louisville. While it is a touch away from the nicest part of town, the hosts took great care care of us, with an absolutely delicious and extensive breakfast, lovely sitting areas with thoughtful complimentary snacks and drinks, and well appointed rooms.

My wife and I decided to try a B&B for our family visit to Luvul. We were very glad we did. The place was recommended in a AAA article we read. The classic 1880's style has so much more personality than any modern hotel and it is located on the edge of the wonderful Old Louisville area of one of... More

What a beautiful place for my sister's and I to spend a few days. Our host, Adrian, was great. He told us about the are and gave us some pointers on where to go/what to do. He is also great cook. We enjoyed our breakfasts and we would definitely stay here again on another trip to Louisville.

This quaint, beautiful property in "Old Louisville" was the perfect getaway to start off our honeymoon. The stay was beautiful and the rooms of the house were charming. Breakfast was also wonderful! We would definitely recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone looking for a nice, romantic evening away from the normal hustle and bustle of life! Thank you!

We decided on a last-minute trip to Louisville, and chose the Rocking Horse as our lodging destination. The building is beautiful and charming, and very convenient to downtown and other neighboring destinations. Adrian (the innkeeper) was very welcoming, and shared a number of interesting facts about the building and Louisville...and he is an AMAZING cook. Our breakfast was incredible. The... More

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.
