We enjoyed our hour-long tour of Ashland. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made the history and stories interesting even for my youngest children (7 & 5). I knew a little about Henry Clay coming in, but learned a lot about his life and he...More

Thank you for communicating your experience. The museum and outdoor exhibits are closed in January, yet, the grounds remain open to the public. Many people don't know that Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate is private property supported by individuals and businesses. We ask that visitors...More
A little history detour from bourbon tasting paying off in spades. Wonderfully appointed historic mansion, though rebuilt by Clay's son on existing foundation. Tour guide Neil Mizer (sp?), a real student of history, was a delightful bonus.
I enjoyed a very educational, entertaining guided tour of the mansion on Saturday, November 11, 2017. The tour took about an hour. In addition, I devoted about two more hours to browsing the gift shop, exhibit room, and the outbuildings and grounds.

Patrick is correct that we are in a residential area, but we are very close to downtown and to some hotels further up Richmond Road heading out of town. The closest in that direction is the Double Tree Suites by Hilton. Otherwise, we would suggest the Hilton or the Hyatt downtown which are both about 2-2.5 miles away. I wouldn't suggest walking, but that's just my personal preference. Hope this helps! Don't hesitate to contact us directly if we can be of further assistance. (859) 266-8581
