I chose this B & B primarily because I was so impressed by the responsible and thorough Covid measures being taken. I felt confident that a host working so hard to make adjustments and accomodations that adhere to Covid recommendations and guidelines would be a quality host across the board, and I was not wrong! Our stay was fantastic! Very private, safe, cozy and comfortable. The food each morning was delicious! The price was extremely reasonable for the quality of the accomodations. Great proximity to many attractions in central/eastern KY, which was another reason for choosing this B & B. Will not hesitate to return, and plan to recommend the 1898 Red Bud B & B to anyone looking for a lovely getaway.

I want to give a whole bag of stars to this bed and breakfast and its wonderful host. From the warm welcome to the comfortable bed to the Roku on the television and the incredible food, you don’t want to miss staying here. Fresh baked pistachio cookies were waiting for me when I arrived along with my smiling host. The next morning, the breakfast was not only delicious and delivered precisely at the time I requested but it was a hearty meal as well with both Sweet and savory dishes on my plate, I couldn’t have asked for more. I found no detail was overlooked during my stay. I was in town for hybrid classes at the seminary. This B&B is in a very convenient location for accessing the University and seminary. I highly recommend this B&B!

For a student at any college, dorm space can be pretty limiting. So, when I had my best friend down to visit Asbury for the weekend, I decided to book a room close to campus where we could have a quiet space to catch up and hang out. Red Bud turned out to be the best decision I could have ever made! It was comfortable, clean, and pleasant. Suzann was an amazing host-- so incredibly kind, and an AMAZING cook! I would absolutely recommend Red Bud to anyone staying in the Wilmore area. Five stars isn't nearly enough!

We had such a charmed visit to the Red Bud B&B right after Christmas. It was still decorated and beautiful, warm and inviting. Suzann is an amazing host and cook. She made us a fantastic breakfast, including making me my own gluten free waffles, quiche, and glazed fruit! It's the cleanest place I've ever stayed and the beds were very comfortable--including the roll out bed that our teenager slept on. We were in the area because of our interest in Asbury University so the location was perfect. We were able to easily go into Lexington for dinner and also access great hiking trails the next morning. Everything about the Red Bud is wonderful. We highly recommend it!

I had stayed here once before in 2016 and had a wonderful experience! So, when I recently had to return to the Lexington area for a family medical emergency, I was relieved to be able to be graciously accommodated by Suzann with only a few hours notice. After long days at the bedside in ICU, it was an oasis to return to 1898 Red Bud house each evening and have hot tea waiting. The hearty nutritious (and delicious!) breakfasts were greatly appreciated also, since lunch and dinner were spotty while at the hospital. She even sent an e-card (sympathy) when my loved one passed the last day of my stay. Suzann was truly kind, flexible, and gracious at a time of great personal stress. Not to mention, the room was perfect. Clean, comfortable, and relaxing atmosphere. I would give this place 10 stars if I could!!!
