Beautiful building. The staff weren't unfriendly, but not overly welcoming or helpful. Stayed in the Abraham Lincoln room, and if was pretty, and reasonably updated. The bed wasn't comfortable though, and the traffic noise made it impossible to get a good nights sleep... Trucks using their Jake breaks at 3 in the morning... just could not sleep through it.

We spent two nights in the Lincoln Suite in the historic Talbot Tavern. This place was built in 1779 and has welcomed visitors ever since. Our "suite" was very comfortable, although a little bit chilly and with some early morning road noise. Reportedly the tavern is haunted, but we experienced nothing unusual. Perhaps my snoring repelled the spirits. A hearty...

Beautiful site. I probably ordered the wrong item but did enjoy the fried pickles!!! I'd give it another try just order something different!!! Great service & friendly staff. Building is beautiful. I had the country fried steak. Just not my kind of food!

Eight of us traveled to Bardstown to do a little bit of bourbon tasting. We choose this Inn as our "home port". Each of our 4 rooms was very unique in décor and history. Our room was the Jesse James room. The twin beds were very comfortable Our room was on the 2nd floor right off of a sort of...

Our experience was amazing. We stayed two nights in the Washington Irving Suite. The room was clean & comfortable. The whole place reeks of history. The service was impeccable and the breakfast was really great too. We look forward to returning. Caveat: We stayed mid-week when it was Very Quiet. We understand the weekend stays are a later "quiet time"...

Fun historic inn. Our room was clean, very comfortable (great bed) but a bit frayed around the edges and furnishings are not period, but we really enjoyed our stay. The only caveat is that some rooms are over the bar, and from other comments they can be quite noisy on weekends until 1 or 2am. As we were there on...

Love the restaurant, the history and the people! The food was average. Very disappointed in the over cooked pot roast and the small amount of meat in the dish. However the Sun special of pork tenderloin was cooked perfect and was delicious. So 1 out of 4 of us ordered the right thing. Our waiter was great and the atmosphere...

We were very happy with the room. It was large and clean. Perfect for our needs. Great place to stay while on the Trail. Location was good. We were able to walk to several restaurants and bars. We enjoyed the bar and restaurant at the Inn also. We look forward to staying again!

The staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. Since this is a B&B and I have many allergies, I called ahead to ask if my allergies could be accommodated or if I could bring my own food and store it. They assured me they could work around my allergies and they did! Breakfast isn't fancy, they served the same thing every...

The first two nights we stayed in the The Anton Heinrick Room, which was very large and accommodating. It was over the bar area, so when the band started playing at 9pm, you could hear it in the room. Instead, we went down to the bar, enjoyed the music, and libations. The last night, we stayed in the Jesse James...
