Stayed at in the loft suite. Very comfortable and homey. Also took the Bourbon University class from the Colonel and Rosemary. What a great experience. Just talking and learning about the history of bourbon and some great recipes to take home. Rosemary has an artful way of marrying bourbon with other beverages and spirits.

My husband surprised me with a stay in Bardstown. We stayed in the Bourbon Loft for 1 night and I would have much rather driven farther to stay at a major hotel chain. The loft looked cute at first glance when we arrived but as we were there longer I noticed how dirty it was. The carpets in the hallway... More

I am so sorry you were disappointed with your stay with us. The reason you didn't see your housekeeper is we try and refresh your cottage everyday while you are out.

We stayed for two nights and took the Mixology Class at 9 am on a Saturday morning. Now this may seem a tad early for bourbon drinks but Rosemary is a master of mixing and made this class fun and informative with the Colonel's assistance. I have bee making Mint Juleps for years but will never make another without using... More

We had a wonderful stay in the Bourbon Loft at the Chapeze House (circa 1787). A unique historic location. Very convenient to many distilleries on the Bourbon Trail. Downtown Bardstown is very quaint and full of history. You simply must schedule a Bourbon University with the Colonel and Margaret Sue. You will come away with an experience for a lifetime... More

We called just last week thinking there would not be any availability with it being Memorial Day weekend. Margaret got back to me right away and we stayed at the John Fitch cottage. It's great; very clean and so nice to have a cozy house to ourselves. Location is perfect; we walked to Talbott Tavern for dinner. Then strolled around... More

The cottage was perfectly decorated, clean & comfy. The bathroom was impressive for a historic home. Breakfast was perfect. We felt very much at home. Margaret Sue was so helpful & accommodating. She never even hesitated to make a trip out after midnight! Planning a trip back.

We stayed two nights in spacious accommodations with the upstairs all to ourselves. Returned home one evening to find the colonel waiting for his guests to serve up an evening cocktail. Decided to take the colonels bourbon class the next day with lunch. A relaxing fun afternoon.

Wonderful historic home in a great location! The Colonel & Margaret made us feel right at home. Great rooms with private living room area in the Bourbon Loft. Great location too right in the heart of historic Bardstown. We will be staying here from now on when we visit Bardstown.
