The Hill House is a wonderful home to stay in for visiting local Bourbon tours. Lisa Maria is a fantastic host - we enjoyed our conversations re the history of the area and the breakfast was outstanding!
A quaint and historic B&B in the heart of bourbon country. Stayed for four nights and loved every minute! Todd was a gracious host and a wealth of local knowledge. Great place for a romantic getaway and not far from most of the places one wants to visit in bourbon country. You will love their breakfast! Thanks Todd for a great time!
We really enjoyed our stay! Our only complaint is that the room we chose (The Magnolia Room) was on the front side of the house and the road is pretty busy and noisy...we aren't used to traffic noise so we did not sleep well. BUT that being said, we would stay again and just choose one of the rooms on the backside of the house. Audrey was a perfect host and the breakfast was delicious! We also enjoyed the company of the other guests at breakfast. Bardstown was one of the friendliest towns we've ever visited. While there we enjoyed visiting Hadron's Bakery (you need to go there and get there early!), Primitive Crow Antiques and The Rusty Rooster.
Audrey and Rosie are great hosts. Take some time to let Audrey tell you about her life experiences. That is time well spent. The bed is super comfortable and the breakfast is worth the stay all by itself.
I traveled to Bardstown for both business and pleasure on this trip. I have several additional visits to make to Bardstown and I will only stay at the Red Rose Inn. The service and friendly care of the innkeeper made me feel like I had a home away from home. I stayed in the Garden Room, but all the rooms were charming, comfortable, and private. The Inn couldn't be any more convenient to downtown--we walked to restaurants and shops. The food was healthy, homemade and delicious--we were loaded up with cookies for our day trip to Mammoth Cave. If I was closer to retirement, I would buy the place myself (it's for sale at a bargain).
Audrey is a fantastic Innkeeper and I really enjoyed staying at her B&B. The room was very comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were wonderful as well. In addition, the location was excellent and very easy access to restaurants and many other interesting sites around Bardstown.
My husband and I have stayed in many B&Bs before, but the other 2 couples had not, they were amazed at the hospitality Donna showed, us, the beautiful rooms, and magnificent breakfast we were served each morning. Was so comfortable sitting together evenings either inside or out
We planned a last minute trip to Bardstown for our wedding anniversary and were pleasantly surprised to find the Maxwell Inn as an option. The house is clean and comfortable and the innkeeper went above and beyond to make sure we not only had everything we needed for our stay but included some personal touches to make our anniversary special. We appreciated how close the house is to all of the attractions and downtown Bardstown and will recommend the Maxwell Inn to others.
Audrey was amazing, she made us feel right at home and the breakfast was phenomenal. Also in a very good location it is about one block walk from shops and restaurants. This is a must stay if you are looking for a B&B in Bardstown.
If you are looking for a place to stay that offers Southern Hospitality and is in close vicinity of sights to see then The Hill House is for you. My husband & I stayed there for 2 nights with two other couples we were traveling with. When we arrived, Lisa Marie greeted us, gave us a tour of the house and she had wine, cheese and crackers available to drink and snack on. We chose the Thoroughbred Suite. It was beautiful, we were provided with everything we needed and we slept very well both evenings. The two breakfast meals she served us were outstanding and very delicious. Lisa Marie was very helpful in telling us about sights to see in the area along with historical tidbits. We also met her little dog, Rudy James, and it didn't take long for him to realize he had new friends. Lisa Marie treated us like we were family the moment we arrived and that is definitely a part of the charm of staying there. We loved The Hill House and highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast as a great place to stay.
We were greeted with a wine tasting, which was absolutely wonderful. The old plantation home is charming and staying there was a real treat. The country breakfast was delicious and the owners were warm and welcoming. Highly recommend Springhill!
We had a wonderful stay at the Mary May House! Dee Dee and Howard were very welcoming. The house is charming and full of history, which is just what we were looking for! The accommodations were comfortable and we felt right at home! We were within walking distance of several restaurants, boutiques, a bakery, and a newly opened bar. It was nice to stretch our legs and walk around town, it's not hard to see why it's a popular stop on The Bourbon Trail! We had breakfast at Mammy's which was delicious!
We are staying here now on business. The owners are super friendly and seem to care a great deal about your stay. The place is beautiful and near downtown. We are enjoying ourselves and will be repeat customers. Great value!
My husband and I attended a client's event in Bardstown and stayed overnight at Springhill. It was perfect. We were able to check in early enough to settle in and dress for the event. Our room was spacious, quiet, comfortable and supplied with luxurious linens. Breakfast the next morning was amazing - especially the bourbon bread pudding and the conversation, led by Eddie's great stories about the house and surrounding area.
From the grounds to the innkeeper to the food and room all were superb, I highly recommend a stay here. Looking forward to going back. It rates a 10 on a 10 scale. Thank you Donna for being a superb hostess and innkeeper, every detail was appreciated.
If you appreciate an authentic historical hospitality setting, at its best which includes superb breakfasts this is your perfect destination---you will have found a winner.
What a terrific one night stay. We wished we could have stayed longer. Lisa Marie greeted us upon arrival and promptly gave us a tour of the house. We were then surprised by a wonderful happy hour of wine and cheese. Room was spotless, breakfast was more than we could eat delicious. We hope to come back in warmer weather to enjoy the beautiful patio.
We loved our time with Ms. Lesa Marie, were in the area for an early appointment at Makers Mark and found this lovely place on the internet. We had a nice quite relaxing evening with a delicious breakfast the next morning and were only 5 minutes from Makers Mark.
Had an enjoyable time at Springhill. Rooms were comfortable, meals outstanding and Carolyn's conversation about the property - very interesting. Having a winery on site was a plus. Wish we had warmer weather to enjoy evenings outside. Bathroom in Chardonnay room was part of the room and had limited privacy. Other than that all was great. Carolyn was a great hostess.
This was my first experience at a B&B. And I have zero complaints about Springhill. I am 38 yr old male, and my fiance is 40. We didn't get to spend a lot of time in the house, because we were in town for a friends wedding. But we did get to spend a little time inside their winery that's on premises, where they have great wine and a nice little laid back atmosphere. Inside the house, we came in late at night, and everyone was asleep. Our room was very clean and we had everything we needed. It was different having all of the older antique style furniture, bed, etc, but it was fine. Pretty neat really. We had a comfy bed, nice shower/toilet area, and everything else we needed. I did not know how I would feel sitting at the breakfast table with 10-12 people I've never met, but honestly it was great. We all felt like one big family at our family dining table. The owners Eddie and Carolyn are simply awesome. They cooked, served, and sat to eat with us! They were very friendly and made us feel at home, as well as eat so much food we were about to pop. And the best part of all was listening to them tell us stories about their old house, and the history behind it, and a few minor ghost stories! :) Be sure to ask him about those! So yes, all in all, this place was perfect for us, and I would recommend you giving them a try! I have no other stays to compare it to, so it will be interesting to see how this place compares to my next one! Safe travels!
Everything was great, the food, the stories at breakfast, the room, the grounds. We stayed in a room where we shared a bath, but it really was not a problem. Had a good time - we'd go back again.
Simply a most wonderful place to relax, unwind and enjoy! The owner, Lisa Marie, is an exceptional hostess who will do everything to ensure you are comfortable and feel welcomed. From a wine and cheese tray upon arrival to freshly prepared breakfasts in a family environment, one can expect satisfaction. Even Rudy James, the inn's mascot puppy, was ready to increase the pleasure of your stay! Rooms were quite nice, location was great (close to Kentucky Bourbon Trail and some magnificent churches to visit) there is something for everyone. This is one place worth visiting, and we know we will be back!
