We were traveling through Lexington on business and selected the Applewood Inn based on Trip Advisor and its location. Upon our arrival we were greeted by our gracious host Chris. He showed us around the property and we were thrilled with the fact it was located a mile off the main road. The setting was beautiful and we enjoyed visiting the llamas. It was a great way to spend a summer evening and put work behind. We relaxed on the outside bench and enjoyed our porch. We had to leave early the next morning due to a work appointment and Chris rose early, fixed an awesome breakfast, while being extremely considerate of the other guests. Please stay at the Applewood! We will return.
