My mom and I went to Lexington just for a little weekend getaway. We were quite pleased with our experience at Red Bud B&B. Although I cannot attest to what appears to be a delicious breakfast, as Suzann was out of town, the hospitality we were shown was enough for us to highly recommend this B&B! Suzann gave us several... More

Many great things -- the gracious hostess, the cloud-like bed, the gourmet breakfast, the cleanliness of the premises -- combine to present a restful and sheltered place to land after (in my case) a very long, nine-hour journey on the road. I felt safe and at peace in this delightful inn. For all you prospectively weary travelers -- this place... More

We visited for family event and spent two nights. Property, rooms, breakfast and hostess were wonderful. We will definitley consider staying again when visiting Lexington. The breakfast each morning was great (hands down better than going to local restaurant) and we were asked the time we wanted to eat the night before.

I stayed at the 1898 Red Bud Bed & breakfast when I came to Wilmore for orientation at Asbury Theological Seminary back in late August. I was delighted with everything about my stay. The room was comfortable, beautiful and peaceful. I loved the claw-foot tub in the bathroom! Suzann's cooking was fantastic. I have seldom had breakfast as good as... More

Our little vacation this last weekend was my absolute favorite and so much of that is due to Suzanne and her beautiful B&B. She was very accommodating, the food was BEYOND delicious, our room was large and comfortable, and we felt right at home. Thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful and memorable!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay. It was a very large, beautiful decorated home. Suzann was very nice and had a great homemade breakfast. It was very private and close to The Shaker Village that we saw the next day. We highly recommend it.

Breakfast was always fabulous even the day we left early for a CC meet and was provided a to go breakfast. The room was comfy. We also had access to a sitting room and a room where our family could... More

We stayed at 1898 Red Bud on August 22-24, 2014. We came to KY to visit the Bourbon Trail and Susan was a wonderful host. We were arriving late from Columbus and she was very accommodating. Breakfast was wonderful both days and we slept well. Susan was also knowledgeable about where we should visit. Next time we come to Kentucky,... More

Our family stayed at this Bed & Breakfast for a weekend in July. Despite the rain, we enjoyed every minute at this lovingly restored Inn. The B&B has made the front two downstairs rooms available for guests, which was a great feature for our family as it gave us a place to relax, play board games, and enjoy family time... More

Before traveling to Wilmore, I researched accommodations and was surprised to see such a highly rated b&b in such a small town. I mean, EVERYONE loves this place, and now I can totally see why! I have never rated anything online before, but the Red Bud is totally worth a recommendation! Suzann was was so hospitable, our room and bathroom... More
