Alder & Gill have decided to "re-retire" and, as of our stay last w/e, were not able to find a buyer so have closed the place. They actually stayed open just to accommodate our group since we have been staying there for so long (we checked the logs and our first stay was in 1996). From Sharon & her daughter... More

We spent a wonderful Friday evening at Rose Hill Inn after spending the day on a tour of horse farms, Keeneland Race Track and the horse sales. Alder and Gill, the owners, were wonderful hosts. They recommended restaurants for dinner. The1823 B & B home is beautifully restored. Lovely garden. Great breakfast. I wish we could have stayed several nights... More

We stayed in an upstairs room that had a shower tucked under the roof, so it was a bit small. Other than that the room was nice and spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The morning breakfasts were very good. The downstairs common rooms were very nice.

We stayed here with 2 other couples, so we had the place to ourselves. A great backyard for conversation and quiet time. the owners gave us good advice for dinner, a great tour of the place and it's history. All the rooms were great, but had different amenities. We had the cottage w/hot tub and it was great. Our friends... More

A girlfriend and I "ran away from home" for a night and decided to stay at the 1823 Historic Rose Hill Inn in Versailles, KY. Good decision! We were warmly greeted by the owners and their lovely English bulldog who is so well trained she will not enter the dining area even when I enticed her with a rub. The... More

My husband and I stayed here the night after our wedding and it was so perfect. We stayed in the cottage which was so cute! The owners are the sweetest people you'll ever meet. They were nice enough to block off the cottage so my bridesmaids and I would have a place to get ready the day of the wedding... More

The Inn was undergoing some renovation and we were upgraded to the cottage which was very roomy with a full kitchen. The bathroom had a separate shower and a spa tub for two. The owners, Alder and Jill, really make this place. It was fun to hear the history of the Inn and the area from Alder. The breakfasts were... More

Located in Versailles, this B&B is a wonderful and historic home. With the original flooring and stained glass window at the top of the stairs, it was amazing. We stayed in the Terrell Room with the canopied bed and loved it. The hosts were amazing, and were more than willing to share information on the home's history. Breakfast was elegant... More

Moved to Lexington 18 mos. ago and had 6 girlfriends fly here for Derby weekend. Best weekend ever and Alder &Gill of Rose Hill Inn had a lot to do with that! The inn is delightful and comfortable.
