We stayed at this beautiful bed and breakfast in May 2016 and again in July 2016. Both times we stayed in the Grand Victorian suite. It's a beautifully appointed room and transports you back into another era. The king sized bed is comfortable and has so many pillows to ensure a great night's sleep. The bathroom has a large walk...

On the way back home from our anniversary getaway we decided to try a B&B for the first time. After reading the positive reviews on here, we chose the Rocking Horse B&B. The owners were responsive to all questions and requests prior to our arrival. Upon arrival, Ricardo met us and gave us a tour of the house and described... More

As part of a swing thru Kentucky, we stayed at the Historic Rocking Horse B&B. The house is beautifully restored with lots of stained glass, ornate woodwork and a grand staircase. Ask to see the pictures of the massive restoration. We stayed in Chelsea's Garden, a very large room that was the master suite. After dinner, we retired to the... More

We flew into Louisville over the Indy 500 weekend to experience Louisville and the Bourbon Trail before the race. Found Rocking Horse Manor on TripAdvisor and loved the reviews and description of the property. Arrived late and we were greeted by Ricardo, co-owner of the B&B. A very nice, pleasant man with extensive knowledge of his historic manor. It is... More

We stayed three nights whilst attending the Derby. The manor is situated in Old Louisville which has many stately homes but it is also in walking distance of downtown. Ricardo was very helpful in providing information for sightseeing and getting to the Derby. Breakfast was delightful and served at our requested times .The manor is very clean and well maintained...

I was in Louisville for an 11 day business conference at the Convention Center in downtown Louisville. I decided to try staying at a B&B rather than at a downtown hotel. It was one of the best choices I ever made! At this particular conference often I did not know what time I was going to be wanting breakfast the... More

We enjoyed our two night stay. The B&B is nicely renovated and has interesting antiques. Our preference is for B&B's that are a little more comfortable and less formal. Decent breakfast and friendly innkeeper. Needs some maintenance/updating (e.g. tub resurfacing, electrical updates, new mattresses.

Such a delight to leave the surrounding street, the modern vehicle that brought us there and then to cross the threshold and step over 100 years back to a time of elegance and opulence. For us, it was magical. Ricardo, our host was a most gracious man and his morning breakfast was delicious - every day! We spent almost a... More
