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

This was our 2nd time to stay here. When you find a great place, you just want to figure out how it will fit in on the roads you travel, even if it is a bit out of the way. Their 116 year old home has been lovingly restored. Suzann is a welcoming and gracious hostess. When we arrived, she... More

My husband and I spent a very restful night at this b n b last week. The hostess was very gracious, the bed comfortable, and the breakfast the next morning was fantastic. We recommend this inn wholeheartedly.

My wife and I had a very nice night at the 1898 Red Bud B&B. Suzann was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and cozy...the breakfast was delicious! The tea and snack in the evening was an added treat.

The owner met us at the door and after greeting us by name, showed us to our upstairs room. The room and bathroom (private to the room but not en suite) were spotlessly clean. She had a selection of hot teas and some splendid rhubarb cake for a evening snack. The breakfast was delicious, served at exactly the planned time... More

My husband and I stayed here overnight as we explored Wilmore for a future apartment. The Red Bud B&B was the perfect place to stay. The room was comfortable and cozy, and we enjoyed the living room area downstairs as well. Suzann was so hospitable and directed us to some great restaurants in the area and was a great resource...

My wife and I enjoyed two nights in The Poplar room while my daughter visited the college as a prospective student. Suzanne was a wonderful hostess. The two breakfasts were outstanding. She could easily open a restaurant with the quality of food she serves. The only trouble is spotty wifi.
