1898 Red Bud Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 4 Wilmore B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We stayed here three nights during the new year and had a wonderful experience -- the rooms are very cozy, Suzann is a great hostess, and the location is very central to our bourbon trail plans. I will definitely be recommending this place to family and friends!

Some additional notes: the wifi wasn't great, but worked fine. Another reviewer noted that the smaller room is grouped with a bathroom without a shower. It's not ideal but works with the provided shower hose. Suzann was also very responsive to any concerns throughout our stay and was helpful in providing tips on places to visit and eat. She's great!

I had the pleasure of staying in the 1898 Red Bud B&B while sharing Juice Plus+ in Kentucky. I'm a busy mom of four boys, which doesn't leave much down time for me, so this was indeed a peaceful retreat! :) The beautiful antique bed was so comfortable and clean....I felt like a princess. Suzann was so accommodating and her evening dessert and gourmet breakfast were superb. Thank you for your gift of hospitality.

We enjoyed our stay at the 1898 Red Bud B&B. Room and bath were immaculate and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and nicely presented, and the hostess was informative about the history of the house- Suzann was great. Don't know if we will ever be in Wilmore again, but this would be our choice for pleasant accommodations.

The home is immaculate and innkeeper, Suzann, went the extra mile in different ways to be accommodating. As a person with MCS (multiple chemical sensitivities,) I am always on guard for triggers - exposure to room fresheners, scented cleaning products, laundry detergents, etc. No worries at this lovely B&B. Suzann kindly washed all the quality linens in scent-free detergents. Upon arrival, there was a fruit compote served in stemware and a beverage. Very refreshing. Wished I had my camera to take a picture of the breakfast plate that was served. Beautiful to look at and equally wonderful to eat. Suzann was sensitive to food allergies and kindly made a substitution without being asked to. So glad we stayed!

Had a wonderful say. The food was excellent, the front portch with the swing was a great place to enjoy the afternoon reading a book. The room was clean and comfortable and the hostess was friendly and welcoming.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Red Bud Inn. The food was exceptional. Everything was very clean and convenient. The owners were a pleasure to meet. We would highly recommend this Inn if you need to be in the Wilmore- Lexington area.

First time here. Love this place. Owner Suzann has an eye for detail, and nothing gets overlooked. She also makes the best gourmet breakfasts I think I've ever had. A wonderful find in this tiny town! I'll be back.
