What a wonderful experience! This B&B gives a weary traveler the best of Kentucky hospitality- warm, inviting and restful. From the plush spa robes to the chocolate bourbon caramel quiche to the comfy bed with fluffy duvet, the Rose Bud has it all at a terrific price. Thank you, thank you to innkeeper Suzann!

I initially selected the 1898 Red Bud Bed and Breakfast due to it's proximity to Lexington since I was traveling there for business. The innkeeper was so nurturing to me during my stay with an outstanding breakfast each morning on the veranda and a comforting homemade dessert when I returned back each evening. The room was pleasant and the bed...

Innkeeper was so attentive, bedroom was very nice, bed super comfy (felt like a princess). and the breakfast was outstanding. It was a very nice relaxing atmosphere. Loved the decor and little personal comforts.

My husband and I were looking for a B&B near Lexington while visiting some of the distilleries on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail for our anniversary. It just so happened that our anniversary fell on Oaks Day/Derby weekend and we had a very difficult time finding a vacancy for just the one night. From the first moment I contacted Suzann, she...

The perfect location near enough to Lexington and far enough away to enjoy the charm of the area in a quiet location. The homemade breakfast is to die for! Everything was enjoyable and the hostess, Suzanne accepted our late arrival; a rarity for a bed and breakfast.

We stayed one night and wished it was longer!! We were 4 people on our way home from the south and looking for something a little better than a hotel. We received far more than a place to stay! Friendly host Suzann provided a home away from home! The rooms and common areas are THE CLEANEST i have ever seen!...

This was our 2nd stay at the 1898 Red Bud and Suzann is a wonderful hostess! The Red Bud is a beautiful, historic home in a quaint small town near Lexington.
