Overall, the best B & B in our many years of travel. Helpful, friendly, gracious hosts who really make you feel like honored guests. Spotless large rooms thoughtfully furnished for guests' comfort. Delicious healthy breakfasts. Great location just off downtown Lexington within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. Can't imagine a more perfect B & B.

Russ picked us up at the...

The home is elegant and comfortable, everything is immaculate and clean. All creature comforts are provided for by the owners of this little jewel.
