This is a beautifully refurbished house on one of the main roads into Lexington and a short drive into the city centre. It is on the edge of a poorer area so surroundings are not encouraging, but walk through the door and you forget everything outside. The garden is even lovely, with a porch to sit out on in the afternoon/evening to enjoy the peace and a glass or two. Host Anton needed to be summoned from his chores to show us to our room and seemed very quiet and reserved, but don't be put off by that, we may have caught him at a very busy time. However, he was very happy to chat amiably and knowledgeably at breakfast about Lexington and its environs, things to do and places to visit even whilst he is busy preparing and serving his excellent "specials" with all the other normal fare for breakfast (go for the specials, they are really great). The guest house is beautifully done out, clean and comfortable and with several sitting rooms to relax and read or enjoy a coffee in. The room we had (The Belle Brezing room, which looked out over the back garden) was spacious and comfortable, and clean. Drive a few blocks and there are several very good restaurants of all sorts to have dinner in. Ask Anton about the Keeneland Race Course and Kentucky Horse Park (you need to allow a full day to see the latter). We really enjoyed our three day stay here and if we come back to Lexington, this will be the place we will stay!
