Why can't I rate six stars? We have stayed twice with friends to do bourbon and horse farm tours and loved every minute! Elise and her staff attend to every detail. Breakfasts are to die for and afternoon snacks are delivered for happy hour. Furnishings, amenities, antiques, fresh flowers, landscaping, even a city park in the same block for long...

Searching for a B&B near the Bourbon Trail in Kentucky, we found A Storybook Inn in Versalles. We planned to stay two nights, but couldn't resist a third night so we could savor the Inn, the wonderful breakfasts, and the area near Lexington. We did enjoy two area bourbon tours and a tour of the nearby Keeneland race track (it...

This is the 2nd year in a row that we have visited Versailles for the Bourbon Trail and horseraces. We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else than a Storybook Inn. We booked the guest cottage again because we had 3 couples. It is masterfully laid out with privacy and a fabulous bath for each couple. With the best breakfasts and home...

Versailles, KY is a beautiful area which includes historic Keeneland, and holds many sweet memories for us. Main purpose of this trip was to introduce dear friends to the magical experience. The Storybook Inn was a lovely backdrop for our adventure. The main house is beautifully appointed and having breakfast there each morning, overlooking the garden was a great way...

Stunningly beautiful inn with unsurpassed service. Jim and Susan do everything imaginable to ensure that every guest feels welcomed and have their individual preferences met. The Inn itself is beautiful. We stayed in the Gone with the Wind room and it was as beautiful as it sounds. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

We were three couples looking for a location near Keeneland race track in Kentucky for a friendship reunion. We wanted a place where we could enjoy some quiet, private time together. The cottage at Storybook Inn was perfect! It was clean, modern, and completely furnished with everything we needed. One evening we "cooked in" and had everything we could want...

A Storybook Inn is really a beautiful place -- I can't imagine asking for more. The grounds are lovely, the rooms, beautiful (and so clean), the food, scrumptious and the warm hospitality of Elise and her staff truly... southern (if being southern means friendly, accommodating and thoughtful!)

You two were so much fun to host. I love how you enjoyed the different facets of the Inn and loved the outdoors by the old stone pond. You took your time and savored the Inn (experienced it) and the area like a fine vintage wine. I know that it was a special anniversary but we would love to have...

My husband's birthday weekend was fabulous thanks to the Storybook Inn. The breakfasts were amazing and the property was beautiful and immaculate. Elise, the innkeeper, was gracious and made dinner reservations and suggestions for us as we were infamiliar with the area. We will definitely return again.
