We had a very restful stay - very quiet and comfortable! Suzann is a wonderful hostess and a great cook! We had a delightful breakfast on the veranda and a to-go cup of coffee for the road. Would highly recommend! If we're ever in Lexington again, we would most definitely stay again. Can't beat the quality combined with the price... More

What a wonderful experience! This B&B gives a weary traveler the best of Kentucky hospitality- warm, inviting and restful. From the plush spa robes to the chocolate bourbon caramel quiche to the comfy bed with fluffy duvet, the Rose Bud has it all at a terrific price. Thank you, thank you to innkeeper Suzann!

I initially selected the 1898 Red Bud Bed and Breakfast due to it's proximity to Lexington since I was traveling there for business. The innkeeper was so nurturing to me during my stay with an outstanding breakfast each morning on the veranda and a comforting homemade dessert when I returned back each evening. The room was pleasant and the bed... More

She had cookies and hot tea avaialble when we arrived. We enjoyed a bright, clean, comfortable room and had a great night's rest. We walked... More

Innkeeper was so attentive, bedroom was very nice, bed super comfy (felt like a princess). and the breakfast was outstanding. It was a very nice relaxing atmosphere. Loved the decor and little personal comforts.

My husband and I were looking for a B&B near Lexington while visiting some of the distilleries on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail for our anniversary. It just so happened that our anniversary fell on Oaks Day/Derby weekend and we had a very difficult time finding a vacancy for just the one night. From the first moment I contacted Suzann, she...

The perfect location near enough to Lexington and far enough away to enjoy the charm of the area in a quiet location. The homemade breakfast is to die for! Everything was enjoyable and the hostess, Suzanne accepted our late arrival; a rarity for a bed and breakfast.

We stayed one night and wished it was longer!! We were 4 people on our way home from the south and looking for something a little better than a hotel. We received far more than a place to stay! Friendly host Suzann provided a home away from home! The rooms and common areas are THE CLEANEST i have ever seen!... More

This was our 2nd stay at the 1898 Red Bud and Suzann is a wonderful hostess! The Red Bud is a beautiful, historic home in a quaint small town near Lexington. Breakfast was outstanding each morning; the brown sugar, cracked pepper bacon was cooked to perfection (and now I have the recipe!!!) Coffee was delicious, and Suzann offered a sweet,... More
