This is an absolutely beautiful estate horse farm minutes from Keeneland. The host was very accommodating and the room was comfortable and extremely clean with new bath. This will beat any hotel experience and add to your memory bank. We will come again for a staycation as we are just a few hours away.

The grounds are beautiful, as is the house, and the rooms are quite comfortable. It's a treat to be on a working horse farm, and to be able to see these gorgeous animals fairly close. The grounds around the house offer many spaces to gather and relax, as does the house on 2 different levels. Everything was really clean, and daily housekeeping replaced fluffy fresh towels every day. The breakfast is cooked to order eggs, with bacon, toast or pancakes, and sometimes hash browns. You can serve yourself orange juice, milk, and yogurt from the refrigerator drawer, under the coffee station. This was a nice set up, but overall, this breakfast didn't have as many options as many other B&B's we've gone to. For the price, I expected more. Overall, this was a very nice place to stay just outside of Lexington, albeit pricey.

My wife and I stayed there during the Railbird Festival in August and would highly recommend the Inn. I enjoyed talking to the owner Jason Sciortino and learning about the business of horse breeding and racing. The breakfast was excellent and the rooms, house and grounds were beautiful peaceful. We felt like we were staying with family and have already booked for next years festival.

The Eighth Pole Inn is fabulous. The Inn is beautiful and very accommodating! The grounds are very well maintained and the best part for me was waking up and seeing the horses! We will be back many many times. Thanks to Jason for making it a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.
