My husband and I may very well become the inn’s most ardent patrons. We were introduced to the pristine Storybook Inn 4 years ago this March and have returned on four occasions, each time lured by the warm memories of Elise’s gracious hospitality and fabulous cooking in one of the most elegant bed and breakfast settings we have ever experienced....

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful getaway at this B&B. The innkeeper and staff were most welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was the best ever! The inn is immaculate in every detail and located perfectly for a tour of the bluegrass horse region. We will definitely return again!

This could be nothing else but a perfect inn.from our welcome to the stunning rooms both common and our "Gone with the wind" suite everything was a delight. The breakfasts were beyond compare and then grounds even with a dusting of snow were superb. Don't miss this PERFECT stop.

We stayed in the cottage, a group of 8 women, and had an outstanding stay. The house is lovely...3 en suite bedrooms and a comfortable living area. And the breakfasts were incredible. Storybook is conveniently located to do the Bourbon Trail. We would highly recommend staying there.

This is a lovely B & B - every detail is perfect. A very quiet area but close enough to visit attractions if you ever want to leave the Inn! The breakfasts are beyond amazing and the service is excellent. I stayed in the Casablanca Room. It was warm, comfortable and gorgeously decorated.I stayed the week before Thanksgiving and the...

We just returned from a great Bourbon Trail trip and spent our Friday evening at Storybook Inn. Terri and Sherri, identical twins, were great hosts. The grounds are spectacular. The kitchen is to die for as was breakfast. We stayed in "Gone with the Wind", very comfortable, fireplace, a bed I could have stayed in for days and a small...

We had a perfect stay in this elegant, beautifully appointed bed and breakfast inn. The rooms are all themed by famous movies: we stayed in the Casablanca Room, and it was lovely--so lovely that we actually watched Casablanca while relaxing in the room. This is one of the finest B&Bs we've ever stayed in, and, in the midst of a...

The moment we walked in the door we were greeted warmly by Robin who then showed us around the beautiful home while also putting us totally at ease. The house is stately and formal but it is not at all "stuffy". The grounds were beautiful as well. The house is located ideally with a short walk to the downtown area....

We have visited B&B's all over the country & this has got to be one of the best, if not the best! The property is well decorated & the innkeepers during our stay were very pleasant and helpful. The homemade desserts that were placed in our room each night were wonderful.

My husband and I never stayed at a B&B so I wasn't certain was to expect. If all B&B's are remotely close to this one I would choose a B&B over a hotel anytime. The interim innkeepers (Jim and Susan) were delightful!! The breakfasts and delicious sweet treats placed in our room in the afternoon were delicious. Our room was...
