I love to stay in B&B's, but when I can stay in one with such history it is a real treat. The Bashford Manor is just such a place. There are so many little nooks and crannies to wander around, the grounds are lovely and I mean if it was good enough for Abe Lincoln, well that works for me.
I liked the location, because one of the coolest streets in Louisville is less then 5 minutes up the road. Bardstown Road is great for fun little restaurants, micro breweries and interesting local flavor.
Mostly I enjoyed Bashford Manor because it's a real place that reflects it's history. It's not some theme park B&B, so yes the floors do creak a bit, but so would you if you were build in 1756.
All and all a wonderful place to stay and the owner is lovely.
