We attended a banquet here. An absolutely beautiful place. The grounds are well landscaped and manicured. The food was delicious. And deserts were over the top!! Staff were courteous and professional. Just a lovely place I would like to return and stay longer.

We were in Lexington for a wedding. The entire property was very clean. Employees at wine tasting were very friendly. The wedding area was good with a very nice building for the reception.
