My husband and I wanted to tour a couple of the distilleries on the famous Bourbon Trail so we were looking for a place to stay that was convenient to these places. We had never stayed at a B&B but decided to give A Storybook Inn a try. We are so happy that we did. It is a beautiful place... More

A Storybook Inn is really a beautiful place -- I can't imagine asking for more. The grounds are lovely, the rooms, beautiful (and so clean), the food, scrumptious and the warm hospitality of Elise and her staff truly... southern (if being southern means friendly, accommodating and thoughtful!)

You two were so much fun to host. I love how you enjoyed the different facets of the Inn and loved the outdoors by the old stone pond. You took your time and savored the Inn (experienced it) and the area like a fine vintage wine. I know that it was a special anniversary but we would love to have... More

My husband's birthday weekend was fabulous thanks to the Storybook Inn. The breakfasts were amazing and the property was beautiful and immaculate. Elise, the innkeeper, was gracious and made dinner reservations and suggestions for us as we were infamiliar with the area. We will definitely return again.

We spent 2 nights here in October while visiting the area. We were in the My Fair Lady Suite which was beautiful & elegant, as the whole house was. Also loved the breakfast! This has to be the nicest bed & breakfast we have ever stayed in. We would love to come back.

We never return to a B&B since there are so many to experience. This is our first return trip. This is the nicest B&B we have ever seen, and only gets better. The accommodations are tops. It is very clean, and updated, and yet holds the southern charm expected. Elise is a wonderful host. She makes us feel at home... More

This B&B is perfect! The innkeeper, Elise, was wonderful from checking in and throughout the 2 day visit. Her attention to details is amazing, to little details in the room (like plenty of plugins for our electrical needs), to wonderful breakfasts asking us in advance questions about our personal likes. And she answered all kinds of questions very graciously. We... More
