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.

We stayed here three nights during the new year and had a wonderful experience -- the rooms are very cozy, Suzann is a great hostess, and the location is very central to our bourbon trail plans. I will definitely be recommending this place to family and friends! Some additional notes: the wifi wasn't great, but worked fine. Another reviewer noted... More

I had the pleasure of staying in the 1898 Red Bud B&B while sharing Juice Plus+ in Kentucky. I'm a busy mom of four boys, which doesn't leave much down time for me, so this was indeed a peaceful retreat! :) The beautiful antique bed was so comfortable and clean....I felt like a princess.
