This spot is perfect for the center of the bourbon trail. We felt like home here and the rooms were very comfortable. Spacious and the amenities were great. Lisa treats you like royalty in a gracious way. Her breakfast was fantastic and carried us to dinner. Would definitely go back.

We met friends for a long weekend there, and had a delightful time! The rooms are very comfortable and the setting is excellent. Breakfasts are terrific, and innkeeper Lisa Marie is an excellent hostess. We had the run of the house, and enjoyed the freedom that allowed us!

Lisa Marie was the perfect Southern hostess, and this B&B has beautiful furnishings, the most up to date amenities, and a fantastic breakfast! It is centrally located on the Bourbon Trail, and Lisa Marie recommended great local restaurants and attractions to enhance our stay. We would definitely return!

Very cozy and friendly small B&B. Lisa Marie was a great host and made substantial breakfasts each morning. Our room was large and clean, although the bathroom was a little small. The street could be a little loud at night, but we liked the location close to Maker's Mark. This is a good place to stay for exploring the Kentucky... More

Ended up booking here because Bardstown fills up quite fast for the Bourbon Festival. The ~20 minute travel time to town ended up being more than worth it to stay here with Lisa Marie. Where most b&b's cook up a big dish to be shared among guests, Lisa Marie serves individual plates with delicious egg dishes, veggies and breakfast meats,... More

We really felt at home when we found a bottle of wine that was left for us when we came "home" from dinner. Lisa Marie was very accommodating, which we appreciated since our stay at the Hill House was a last minute change in our travel plans. Breakfast was phenomenal. The inn was comfortable and we loved the large shower.

I would very much love to give Lisa Marie at the Hill House 10 stars, alas it only allows for 5. Upon arrival, you notice the gorgeous landscape, and should you happen to stop anywhere in Kentucky, "y'all" will most assuredly be treated with a smile, as well as a warm welcome. When you do get to The Hill House,... More
