This was a relaxing, enjoyable and comfortable stay. Carol and Bernie couldn't be nicer and more accommodating! It was clean and comfortable with beautiful vistas from the porch. Carol made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this location to everyone!

The bicycling in the area countryside was great! A good location to ride from and downtown Lexington has fabulous shops and restaurants. Bernie worked to meet our large group demands and the breakfasts were delicious with several choices. I really enjoyed doing my needlework on the porch after a hard day of riding.

Bernie was wonderfully accommodating to our party of 14 women. He fed us a delicious breakfast each morning so we would be fueled up for the ride! The B&B was clean, quiet and spacious. We rode our bicycles from the B&B for 3 days. Beautiful countryside and natural wonders created an ideal environment for riding. Thanks Bernie!!
