I really enjoyed staying at the Wendover Bed and Breakfast! It is peaceful and cozy, and the breakfast was amazing! I love the history - the main house was built by a famous Nurse Midwife who made a tremendous positive impact on the surrounding community. She is one of my hero's and I felt honored to stay in her home!

Loved this place... We stayed here in June 2016 and I am finally getting around to reviewing. We had two adults and two children and reserved the only unit with a kitchenette and separate bedroom. It was great for kids because they had a pull out couch to use and since the area was once reserved as the Frontier Nursing...

Wendover B&B is a jewel nestled away in the Kentucky mountains overlooking part of the Kentucky River. It is a quiet retreat that is warm and inviting. I had the pleasure of spending an evening there on December 1, 2016. The food was a delicious, home-made experience that rivaled the most favorited Grandma's cooking! This B&B is also filled with...

It's rich history aside, I found Wendover to be a place of fresh air, peace & quiet, with gorgeous views of the autumn foliage in the Kentucky mountains. I was "stuck" in Kentucky, due to an approaching hurricane that made it impossible for me to reach my planned destination for a few days. Staying in Wendover was like being in...

As a Kentucky native I enjoy experiencing exploring my home state. Wendover has a very rich history and it's a lovely place to visit. Besides the food being phenomena (especially the homemade rolls), the views are exquisite. There are many wonderful things to see and do in this area. Stop in and visit for a spell.

Stopped off on my way to Vanderbilt University with my kids to show them where I studied 25 years earlier. We recieved such a warm welcome in Hyden Kentucky at the school and at the Big House, historic home of Mary Breckinridge, now a beautiful, comfortable bed and breakfast.

The place was beautiful and the history is amazing. The food was great, would love to come back with my husband for a quiet getaway and connect with nature. The Wendover house was beautiful and many antiques furniture pieces from the 1800's.

Thanks for your review. It is always a pleasure to share the wonderful heritage that Mrs. Mary Breckinridge left for the enrichment of public health. As a new FNU student, I wish you and your cohort all the best on your journey to become an advanced practice nurse! Come back and visit us again soon!​

First of all, there is not much to do in the immediate area. This is a great place to go an just relax. The Wendover Bed & Breakfast is on the site of Mary Breckenridge's home.

Thank you for your wonderful review of our bed and Breakfast at Wendover. Coming to Wendover is truly a passage back to the past. With our two story log cabin called "The Big House", it is very easy to forget what year it is. I am glad you both enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again soon! Michael

There is nothing better than seeing the history of the FNS, of walking the halls that Mary Breckinridge walked. What a spectacular setting for a visit to the gorgeous Kentucky mountains. The perfect retreat, getaway, and place to connect with nature and history. Loved every second we were there! Thank you for the warm hospitality!

“Guests have the option of staying in the Big House, Garden House, or Barn (renovated). If you prefer being surrounded with historical elegance, the Big House is the place for you. If your budget is tight, though, you may prefer to stay in the Barn. Although not as elegant as the Big House, it is clean, comfortable, and close to the dining room. Bathrooms are shared in the Barn.”
