Todd could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and was made to be an innkeeper. Why trust our judgement? Well we are also like Todd..award winning innkeepers and thus we have high expectations and also sadly too much knowledge of inns that try and don't succeed!
Whilst the decor was not what we would usually seek out, for hailing from the UK traditional historic style is something we actively avoid, this place had the the right level of history and practicality. Our sleep was good, the linen first class and the place quiet.
Todd one of the owners has found his calling and I can see why the inn has not only won many awards, but also is very involved in the the Kentucky B & B lodging association. What we were surprised by was that for the bourbon trail there actually seem to be very few quality small inns to choose from.
The grounds do deserve a special mention as they have been created over the last few years and resemble the best garden you could find in an English country setting. The whole area around Springfield reminded us of parts of rural western England, as it was green, luscious and unlike Vermont where we own our inn, the roads were a dream to drive on...didn't see one pot hole all week!
Special praise has to be given to Todd & Tyler as the 3 rescue golden retrievers were sweet hearts and plainly were well loved. We also assume the alpacas have a charmed life, and you can easily buy many gifts at the inn derived from their coats.
