We stayed at this bed and breakfast a few weeks ago. We had the Steeple Room. First I would say the room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. The large jacuzzi was very nice. However, the first thing you face when renting this room is having to walk through the kitchen where the breakfasts are made and where the owner apparently makes their own meals and where her daughter, mother, and grandchild sit in the day and in the evenings. Then you face an extroidinarily steep narrow set of stairs that are made more hazardous because the treads of the steps are not deep. You have to almost place your feet parallel to the risers, any adult's heel will definately be hanging off each step as you climb these very steep stairs. Do it with a heavy suitcase and you will find it very difficult. Also, the grandchild (and in our case, his friends) were a bit noisy as they played on the hardwood floors directly down from your room. At these prices any adult would expect peace and quiet and that was not the case. There is little on the breakfast menu and you must have your order in the kitchen by 8pm the night before and the breakfasts are fixed in time increments during the morning. I didn't feel the owner was very hospitalble at all. I have stayed in two other B&B's in northern Kentucky in the last few years and I would not recommend this one nor would I stay here again. It takes a certain kind of person to run a B&B - graciousness is required and I sure didn't find that here - plus the intrusion of the family into the facility made it uncomfortable. Maybe a room in the second house where the family is not located would be better, don't know. I just know that for the price and the claim of wonderful food, this is not where you want to be.
