Prepare to be amazed. We had no idea that staying here would be the highlight of our trip. We rented all the rooms for our stay and had a better time than we ever would have had we stayed in a commercial chain. The value you will get for your dollar is incredible, and the memories priceless.
The inn is run by the nicest pair of people you will encounter, who were able to entice even our 3 teens who "don't do breakfast" to rise by 8:30 to be catered to at a beautiful dining room table. If one kid didn't seem to be eating one type of fruit, Sue would spot it in an instant and be back in a flash with an alternative coaxing them to not be shy about their preferences. Jeff and Sue are terrific cooks, and made sure everyone had a full meal. On our departure date, we had to drive to Connecticut, leaving at 6am. Awaiting us were 2 bags of homemade muffins for the road--which were devoured before crossing the state line. The "coffee fairy" also appears each morning in the form of a timed coffee pot in the snack nook, which I really appreciated.
Our kids were delighted by the provision of shelves of current DVDs, a refrigerator full of soda and baskets of snacks all provided in a clever nook area by the bedrooms. The flat screens with DVD players in each room was also well received.
The guest portion of the B&B has a separate entrance from the innkeeper's area--so there is no awkwardness of trying to enter someone's home. Parking is conveniently provided behind the inn.
The rooms were very comfortable with all the comforts attended to. The rooms are decorated in keeping with the period of inn, yet have modern conveniences well planned. Wireless internet was a big plus with our teens.
Cynthiana has an interesting phenomenon of freight trains running through the middle of town day and night, and these trains do use their horns for safety. Jeff suggests that whoever in your group sleeps most heavily take the front bedroom. We took the middle room and although I am a very light sleeper, the trains never woke me up. Our kids also slept through all the trains, so it wasn't a problem for our group at all--I'd just suggest that if you are concerned about noise, to bring a earplugs in case it bothers you.
There is a fascinating little museum across the street from the inn that you should take the time to see--plan on an hour--to learn more about Cynthiana and the region. Make reservations well ahead of time to tour the Toyota plant in nearby Georgetown--it is like no other factory you will see--and it's impossible to get space on the tour without reservations pretty far in advance--but worth it.
In sum, we had such a nice time staying there, that we are thinking of finding a reason to return. Soon.
