Arrived aound 4:00 P.M. rang bell and immediately was greeted. Went to room Spectacular Bid and was smaller than I thought but was very nice. Went driving around and to supper. Come back around 9:00P.M. Was very quiet and we seemed to be the only guests. We wandered around the parlor and the library. It is very nicely furnished and... More

I don't usually stay at a B&B without reading lots of reviews (wish I'd thought to check TripAdvisor beforehand), but I took a chance on the Doolin House because it was recently constructed, reasonably priced, and the website said the innkeepers were both gourmet chefs. I stayed in the Genuine Risk room. Upon booking, I knew that it had a... More

Let me start out by saying this was our second attempt at the Doolin House. We stayed there four years ago. On that trip we had a bad experience. We had arrived and no one was there to check us in. Just paper and the keys left with directions. In the middle of the night the house became absolutely freezing.... More

Wonderful Stay! Most relaxing weekend we've had in a long time. Breakfast was great1 One morning we were even served breakfast in bed. Allison and staff were bubbly and friendly and open to any suggestions no matter how silly they might sound. Just great all around

Again, Tripadvisor turned up this delightful find for our trip into Kentucky. Doolin House is a fine example of architecture in a leafy area of Somerset. The accommodation was lovely with an equestarian theme. The house is large and although the rooms are large, airy and filled with antique furniture and tasteful furnishings, the only one left was small with... More

We stayed at the Doolin House for two weeks in May, 2009. Our experience actually changed my mind about B&B's ... from apathetic to enthusiastic. While the architecture and the furnishings style of the Doolin House are 1920-30's, the structure is nearly brand-new. That means that everything works as it should, the structure is tight and sound ... and the... More

My wife and I stayed in the Man O' War room which was very large and had a jacuzzi tub, flat panel tv, gas fireplace, and a very comfortable bed. There was plenty of room to spread out and have dinner in the room. We had a wonderful fruit plate and cheese plate delivered and opened our own bottle of... More

We booked a last minute stay here for an overnight following a family event in Somerset. We were pleasantly surprised with the property, as we had not read a thing about it prior to our stay. The house has been totally rebuilt, but it still feels very much like a period home. There are antique fixtures, furniture and rugs as... More

My husband and I stayed at the Doolin House for a weekend in July. Granted, we've never stayed in a bed and breakfast so we weren't sure what to expect- we usually stay in large hotels like the Hilton or Marriott, which I am sure is a totally different experience. We found the Doolin House to be clean, inviting, with... More
