We stayed here for 6 nights in June on vacation to visit numerous local attractions, hit the bourbon trail, and visit Churchill Downs.
The location couldn't have been better, 15 minutes to downtown, 5 minutes to shops and food, quiet neighborhood.
The building is charming, and considering how old it really is, it is in great condition. Most rooms available are excellent.
We stayed in the travelers suite (cheapest room) but that is the only room with a caveat: the bathroom (toilet and shower) is in the bedroom... think of a loft type room. There are curtains that separate it from the bed area, but some people may find that an issue. My wife and I did not, but we also had no problem "taking turns" in the room. All other rooms have a separate bathroom, with appropriate cost.
All being said, the house, and room, were perfect for our desire for a quiet, comfortable home-base to explore Louisville and Kentucky.
The Breakfast was amazing. 5 star service, full spread with multiple items every day (yogurt, coffee tea, fruit, nuts, juice) along with rotating hot items (pancakes, eggs, omelets, ham, bacon, ect.). In fact, it was so amazing, the one day we were going to skip it, we rescheduled our day in order to have it.
The Staff: both Cynthia and Drew were awesome and very hospitable.
Amenities: WiFi, AC (thank god), nice grounds to walk around, an awesome porch for relaxing
Pros: Location, Price, Amenities, Comfort, Mini Fridge
Cons: if the place is busy, I can see breakfast being a bit hectic, and nights possibly being noisy. There was 2-3 other couples there while we were there and we didn't hear them, and breakfast was usually just my wife and I (early risers). But the place can hold many more than 6 people.
Tips: 8am is earliest for breakfast, plan around that.
Verdict: Worth the price, would recommend.
