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

Beautiful! Service is A+. Old Victorian charm. Pleasant atmosphere. From stained glass windows to the relaxing (and beautiful) courtyard, it's just exquisite! Location is close to downtown. Ricardo, you are awesome!!

I have to say that I do not think I have ever had a bad experience here. The beds are always comfortable, the house is immaculate. The food is wonderful and Ricardo is the nicest guy ever. If you have never been to a B&B, this would be a great one to get the experience of how terrific they can... More

My friend and I stayed here while we were in town for another friend's wedding. The house is beautiful. We stayed in a lovely room on the third floor which had a wonderful claw foot tub I sadly did not actually soak in. I also quite enjoyed the sitting room on the third floor, where I made cup(s) of tea... More

Stayed at the Rocking Horse Manor and was very happy. Beautiful home with lots of history. Within walking distance to most downtown attractions. "20 minute walk" Breakfast was great and the in keeper was nice and helpful. We would stay here again. Bed was a little squeaky and stiff, but the room was very pleasant. Was very clean.

Stayed at the Rocking Horse during a three-day business convention. They were accommodating to my sometimes-hectic schedule, and it was a wonderful respite. All three breakfasts were wonderful. They played pleasant classical music in the morning. The rooms are absolutely beautiful.

Recently stayed at the Rocking Horse Manor B & B. We loved the peacefulness and beauty of the turn of the century décor. Much attention to detail for guest's enjoyment. Breakfast was creative and delicious. Room was spacious, clean and bright. Bed felt like home. Next overnight in Louisville will be spent here. Out back is a secluded, inviting space.... More

We spent labor day weekend at the Rockinghorse Manor it was beautiful with beautiful rooms. The innkeeper was kind and accommodating. On your next visit ask about the ghost in the library. We took a great picture of him.

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.
