The entire establishment is very well kept, with the design highlighting both the past and the future of the place. I really appreciated the signs and displays that showed the history of the establishment and Mary Breckenridge. It gives the overall ambience of a rich history. I loved how some of the books and canes that she used when she... More

I felt like I was visiting an old house of someone I know when I got here. This is a place full of historical stories. It is very cozy and the price is affordable too. The surroundings are beautiful and so peaceful.

I recently traveled with a group to Wendover and had the opportunity to stay in the newly renovated Barn Apartment. The space was very generous with a separate living/dining area, full kitchen, bath (with tub) and bedroom. The temperatures ranged from chilly to hot outside but indoors the temperature was maintained at a comfortable level. The apartment had a private... More

Wendover Bed and Breakfast was such a delight! The guided tour was fantastic and educational. The history of Mary Breckinridge and the Frontier Nursing Service is admirable and very interesting! The food was delicious Southern cuisine and with a heads up they happily accommodated my small children with chicken and dumplings. The remoteness of the location adds to its charm.... More

Thanks for your wonderful review of the Wendover Bed and Breakfast Inn. Chicken and Dumplings is one of our favorite meals at the Big House and we are glad that everyone enjoyed it. A visit to the Historic Headquarters of the Frontier Nursing Service is truly a step back to not only the rich history of nursing but also to... More

Wendover provided us the perfect balance of rustic beauty and formal elegance. A lover of history, I was swept along through time, enjoying hearty Kentucky fare on Wendover's traditional Blue Willow China, lounging on Breckenridge's original furniture, and reading her collection of antique books. From a cushioned window seat, I soaked in the clear view of the rock gardens sloping... More

I have lived in Hyden all my life and had never been to the Big House. This past October my book club read a book about Mary Breckinridge, then decided to have lunch and a tour of the big house. I was so impressed! The building is beautiful and full of so much history. Michael Claussen is the best tour... More

Wendover is a magical place of healing and redemption for so many of us, who have visited or worked there. Mary Breckinridge's vision continues to this day, and Michael Claussen, our charming guide and the Development Coordinator for Frontier Nursing University, was the cherry on top of our sundae! Very knowledgeable in all things Wendover, Leslie and Harlan Counties, Mr.... More

Stayed at the "Big House" during a business trip to Frontier University. Great old log cabin built by Mary Breckinridge. Four unique rooms with comfortable antique furnishing. Two rooms with double beds and two more with twin beds. Very nice common area and dinning room. Felt like a wonderful step back in time. Staff was extremely helpful. Our tour guide... More

Beautiful home and grounds! The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would recommend to my family and friends. The surrounding area is lovely. There is not much to do in town and cell service is spotty, I found these things a plus.

I had a short tour of this place last month and I am impressed with their effort to retain history of Frontier Nursing Service and Bed & Breakfast. I enjoyed the guide tour and learned about the background of this place. I loved the archiving section most. They have an incredible collection of photos, nursing materials and furniture used by...
