We have stayed at this beautiful and hospitable B&B in the historic area of Louisville several times and have always found it as warm and comfortable as before-never a disappointment when we stay here! New Inn Keepers, Kathy and Doug made us feel welcome the minute we stepped into this beautiful home owned by Gayle and Herb and the breakfast...

This is a top tier B&B. Super comfortable, well-run, convenient with complementary wine and an excellent breakfast. We'd for sure stay again. We explored the charming historic homes just a few minutes from the B&B during the afternoon and walked to a nice Italian place around the corner for dinner. These were recommendations from the lovely young chef couple managing...

My husband and I spent 2 nights in the Edison room. Room was very comfortable and the beds were great. The only small issue I had with the room was there is a window above the doorway which has a sheer curtain on it; so the room was not very dark due to lights always staying on in the hallway....

We appreciate the nice review and especially helpful is your mentioning light coming through the transom over the door. We have now requested that our innkeepers make sure that overhead hall light is off at night. It is not needed for safe passage and we certainly want EVERYONE to sleep well at night. Feedback like this pointing out how we...

I recently spent two nights at this lovely inn. It was the nicest business travel experience I've ever had! The rooms were cozy, tasteful, and immaculate.

I reserved the whole house for two nights in February with the caveat that I would not need some of the rooms on the second night. This was not a problem, even when I made changes a couple of times. We arrived a bit early and were able to check into our rooms, and they were patient with me as...

My wife and I have stayed at this B&B half dozen times while in town for the St. James Art Show.

We are certainly pleased to be singled out by a veteran traveler like yourself a "the best B&B in Louisville".

You are gracious to write that duPont Mansion "rivals any 5 star hotel." I thank you for that. Five Star certainly is the standard we strive for, every day with every stay.

So glad you enjoyed your stay. The Alcott room is one of the smaller rooms, yet it plenty big enough for comfort and the large in-suite bathroom has a jetted tub and separate shower. Thanks for writing.
