Hello. My wife and I made reservations for April 2 and were called today, March 31st, to say they had an "emergency" and were not able to have guests for this week. We were very much looking forward to the stay at the Rocking Horse after a 400-plus mile drive, but that's not going to happen. I see in other... More

I visited Louisville with some friends for a conference at the University and we had an amazing experience staying at the Rocking Horse. The historic home has been beautifully preserved, the rooms are extremely well-kept and comfortable (even the daybed I slept on), and the breakfast was PHENOMENAL (egg soufflé? to die for). The location is perfect, the atmosphere is... More

Our stay at the Rocking Horse Manor couldn't have been more enjoyable- what a wonderful place! The house is stunning, with a warm, cozy atmosphere that makes you feel at home. In addition to the guest rooms, there is a first floor living room with a fireplace, a parlor with soft music, and a third floor sitting room with movies,... More

My 13-year-old found the Rocking Horse when we were looking for places to stay on a cross-country road trip we took with my parents. She had never stayed in a B & B before. When she saw the photos of the house and the rooms, she was hooked. We had a lovely room with a queen bed for her sister... More

Everything about this B&B is perfect and should not be changed - except the pancakes offered at breakfast. Owners are wonderful, decor is gorgeous, location is perfect, rooms are terrific, and could go on and on. The pancakes are not freshly made and appear to be frozen and warmed up. Change that and you have the best B&B that is... More

The furnishing and comfort of this Victorian house make it worth your while staying here alone. The stained glass, lamps, furnishings and collectables everywhere make it an interesting exploration and the Victorian plumbing beats the controls in many modern hotels. Add onto that the hospitality of John & Ricardo and its a must if your staying in Louisville. Their breakfast... More

This is one of the finest B & B's we have visited anywhere. The location on the edge of the Historic District of Loiusville was a main interest. But the opulently decorated Victorian and the hospitality of its owners, John and Richardo, was very special. Our room, Louise's Country Cottage was on the second floor of three and decorated to...

I cannot possibly name all the reasons I love this place! It is so gorgeous with its intricately carved wooden staircase, stained-glass windows, beautiful furnishings, tiffany lamps, chandelier, flowers, glassware, etc., etc., etc. I felt like a little girl in her very own life size doll-house! There are antique & vintage collectibles everywhere. It is such a treat to the... More

We had a wonderful stay here in September for two weeks, whilst we visited our daughter at the University of Louisville. John and Ricardo are superb hosts and the Manor is an amazing , stunning place. Everything was perfect, from the room we stated in, Louise's Country Cottage, to the delicious breakfasts and John's incredible knowledge of Louisville. When we... More

We had two wonderful nights in the Rocking Horse Manor's 3rd floor Patricia's Hideaway room. Hosts John and Ricardo know their property well. When we arrived we got a full tour of the B & B with historical stories about the original home and its restoration. Located on "Millionaire's Row" in Louisville, it is one of many amazing homes in... More
