We had a fabulous stay. Our room was beautifully decorated with tons of bourbon touches and a nice soaker tub. Missy and John are the best hosts....happy hour drinks and desserts aren't to be missed and Missy's breakfasts will leave you full as you head out on your bourbon trail tours. We also loved that restaurants were close enough to walk to and loved the feel of the neighborhood. We will definitely be back again!

This place really is amazing. It's beautiful, quiet, great location near bars and restaurants and shopping. Missy is a great cook so the food will not disappoint. If you get a chance, you should look them up and stay.

We stayed four nights on our visit to tour the Bourbon Trail, choosing Chateau Bourbon because of the location, plus their designation as a Select Registry property. Overall, they are a decent property, but do not rise to the Select Registry level. The breakfast and room were good, but requests for variance from innkeepers' standard approach were not well met. Outside of designated breakfast, you are expected to use their Keurig coffee machines. We asked if they could set up regular coffee to brew at 7 a.m. and they agreed - but this only happened half the days of our visit, even though we reminded them each night. We made a special request that they make our favorite bourbon drink our last night at the 5 o'clock session (the same drink they had made on the night of our arrival) and were told by Missy that they intended to make a different drink. When we expressed disappointment, Missy's comment was "Well you win some - and you lose some". Small points maybe, but important when considering where to spend your time and money.

This is the best home away from home and if your home is cluttered, dusty or undecorated, then it's better than being home. All the restaurants you can walk to in the community are welcoming and there is a nice variety. If you enjoy walking or running, you can go out each day and never walk by the same place twice. Missy and John are amazing, kind people who go above and beyond to make you feel at home or better than at home.

Beautiful room, everything very clean, the Innkeepers were second to none, from the bourbon infused 3 course breakfast to the happy hour surprise drink and dessert it was superb. Missy knows Louisville so she and her husband are a wealth of information. We will definitely return.

The visit begins with a warm welcome and tour from co-owner/co-host, Missy. The Inn is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. The common areas of the Inn are welcoming and comfortable. The sleeping room was large and extremely well appointed. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower with a separate deep soaking tub. There is sufficient storage with a walk-in closet and multi-drawer bureau. Missy is a gourmet chef and cocktail mixologist. You don’t want to miss happy hour with the specialty cocktails like pecan manhattans and luscious sweets like bananas foster and bourbon s’more ice cream. The 3 course breakfasts are incredible with delicacies like egg soufflé and bourbon ball waffles. Impeccable service is provided by hubby John, co-owner/co-host. Chateau Bourbon is located in a beautiful neighborhood with walkable shops and restaurants. It is also strategically placed for visiting the distilleries on the bourbon trail, taking a stroll down Whiskey Row or visiting the sites of Louisville.

Carol & George - Thanks so much for the wonderfully kind words. It was fun getting to know some fellow bourbon lovers from MI. We are so glad you visited during your time in Kentucky. We hope to host y'all again, and maybe some more Bourbon Women from the Michigan chapter! Until then, take care and drink good whiskey! :)

We had the most amazing stay at Chateau Bourbon, I cannot recommend them highly enough. My husband and I are very excited to go back again when we can. The location is wonderful, in a very unique and special neighborhood with a great mix of restaurants, little shops, tree lined streets, just beautiful. Everything about the inn made for a delightful getaway, from spending time relaxing together on the beautifully inviting front porch, to the sips and sweets happy hour generously put on by Missy and John (Missy even made me a thoughtful and delicious mocktail, as I do not enjoy alcohol, a very appreciated touch), to the perfectly decorated, large, inviting rooms of the inn. I loved the decor, clean, not cluttered, fresh, and lovely. It stood out to both of us how clean the inn is. It is in immaculate shape. There's a nice pantry of snacks and drinks available at all times. Our room had a wonderful en suite bathroom with a large shower and a great shower head with good water pressure. We had a private balcony off our room that was a delightful way to relax in the morning. The bed was probably as comfortable of a bed as I have ever slept on and the linens felt luxurious and managed to be both inviting and beautiful at the same time. Plenty of linens to adjust to your personal comfort level and we appreciated the individually zoned HVAC system that made it easy to keep our room comfortable. There are many special touches woven into the stay at the inn, each one designed to enhance your getaway. The 3-course breakfast the next day was a great way to begin the next stage of our journey. Definitely everything we would want a B&B to be.

Oh, Stacey, thank you so very much for your kind words! :) We really appreciate you taking the time to share the highlights of your visit with us and others. And of course I'm so glad you loved your mocktail (sometimes those are more fun for me to make than the actual cocktails!). We hope you and Mark will come stay again the next time you're in Kentucky. Thanks again!

There are great B&Bs, and then there are exquisite B&Bs. Chateau Bourbon is most definitely an exquisite experience. From the moment you’re greeted at the door until you say goodbye at the end of your stay, everything about Chateau Bourbon is wonderful. This was our 7th visit (we think) to Chateau Bourbon. Missy and John are the most gracious hosts you can imagine. Guests feel like family as soon as you arrive. The happy hour each day pairs a wonderfully prepared dessert with a well-crafted bourbon cocktail. Whether served on the patio or in the living room, it’s a great time for conversation. The rooms at Chateau Bourbon are gorgeous (we’ve been in all four rooms) and are roomy, comfy, and we’ll appointed. Breakfasts are always amazing. Three courses, starting with the house granola served with yogurt and the Chateau signature drunken cherries. Second course is a savory breakfast item, followed by the third course which is the sweet item, accompanied by the house bourbon butter maple syrup. We’ve never had a breakfast we didn’t rave about. Spending a day walking through the Norton Commons neighborhood is like a throwback to an earlier time. The homes are gorgeous, and there is plenty of places for shopping and dining, all within walking distance. Chateau Bourbon has become a regular stop for us, and we’ll keep coming back because it’s like our home away from home.

5+ star experience!!! We had a wonderful time here. The best of both worlds. Urban setting with so much to do and walk around but still the small intimate feel of a b&b. Missy and John made us feel so welcome and the extra touches went above and beyond. They gave great recommendations and so friendly! Will 100% be back!!

Absolutely loved our stay here. Great location to many attractions in the area and the place is so incredible it was worth the drive to areas a bit farther away. Its location in the center of town was so convenient to multiple restaurants within a short walk especially at the end of a long day it was great not to have to drive again. The home is new yet designed to look like an old southern mansion. Every detail was well thought out and the hosts, Missy and John, do a great job of making you feel incredibly welcomed into their home to use as yours. We planned each day's outing so as not to miss the 5pm bourbon and dessert daily treat they served. My husband is the bourbon drinker, I'm the designated driver but after experiencing a new bourbon cocktail each evening I am now hooked! This was a great touch as well as the complimentary pantry/nook loaded with snacks and a refrigerator filled with water and soft drinks for guest. Our room was really nice. Super comfortable king size bed, very quiet and a well appointed bathroom. Breakfast was like being at a michelin restaurant and every bit as good, if not better! Not only was the presentation beautiful but each course was delicious. Each morning I couldn't imagine it could get any better but somehow it did. I would definitely use this as my base of operations while visiting all the wonderful places there are to see in KY.
