A great place to stay and enjoy a historic home! Host was very welcoming and accommodating -nice touches like fresh cookies and tea and C-19 policies that I appreciated. Food was delicious! Very comfortable bedroom with lots of historic charm-yet Roku, WiFi, etc. I will be recommending to my friends!

What an absolutely wonderful stay we had at the Red Bud! The Carriage House was so clean and comfortable we wanted to stay for a week! The bed and breakfast is also lovely and Suzann is just a fabulous host and such a wonderful chef! I would recommend this beautiful Jewel in Kentucky to anyone who wants to have a lovely time and a great value!

My husband and I made an impulse trip to Ky to surprise my son for his birthday. After booking a hotel in Lexington to make sure we had a place, I decided to search for something closer to him in Mercer County. We were delighted to discover this little treasure and our hotel reservation was quickly cancelled. From the pristine bathroom to the charming and comfortable bedroom to the nightly sweet treats to the gourmet breakfasts on the veranda, we couldn't have been more pleased and pampered. For us, the nod to safety in the ongoing pandemic was so very comforting. It was the first and only lodging I found that was so upfront about the steps they were taking. Add in the invitation for my son and his girlfriend to join us for breakfast one morning and Suzann hit it out of the park. We cannot wait to return!!

We came through for a college visit. It was such a fun experience for my daughter and me to stay here. It was beautiful and tasteful. We loved the touches of cookies and tea waiting for us when we arrived. The breakfast was abundant and delicious! The bed was very soft and comfortable. The hostess was so kind! We walked to the university which was maybe a 10 minute walk and the neighborhood was quaint too. We will totally return if we get the chance!

The Coach House is extremely spacious at an affordable price and the food is outstanding! The grounds are beautiful and relaxing. Wilmore is a very special town. It is convenient to anywhere in the bluegrass and a great place to get away from it all.
