          I stayed here during Rolex, and it was so convenient and relaxing. Beautiful views of Kentucky farms, nice rooms, friendly service. Can't beat the location to KHP which was 5 minutes away. Great snacks!

          Hi! I have sent an email and left a message on voicemail for Essence (which the greeting was automated, not what I'd expect from a business), and I haven't heard back. Does anyone have another way to book? Can a room accommodate 3 people (roll away)? My 75 yo Mom, 15 yo daughter, and I want to stay here for two nights in late March!! Panicking because time is running out!
