First, understand what you will be getting when you stay here: this is obviously a work in progress. Cynthia is clearly a woman of ambition and vision, and as such work on this stately and historic home is continuing. We stayed in the Garden Suite, not the main house. The seclusion was wonderful, but the effort and the ambiance thus far are clearly in the main house. On our next stay, we will opt for the main house. I would also caution potential guests, the Garden Suite would be very difficult for a person of much "girth" to navigate. Breakfast is STELLAR, do not skip it! For those wanting to see the real gems of Louisville, the location couldn't be better. The property is just a 3 or 4 minute drive from the truly delightful "Weird Louisville" that everyone should experience up and down Bardstown Road.
Cynthia and staff were very accommodating, which I understand is not always the case with B&Bs. We were given a very gracious schedule with check-in, breakfast, and checkout My wife looked at me on the way out the door and informed me that we'd be back when everything was in full bloom. Still being polished, but oh what a gem the Bashford Manor Bed and Breakfast will be when completed!
