Somehow I picked the Storybook Inn for a two day stay for my wife and I when we did a road trip April of this year. Both my wife and I loved it. The inn, breakfast and our host were all just the tops. In the end, my wife said she did not know she had married, 34 years ago,...

It was our annual sorority sister's getaway. A day at Keeneland, a tour of 3 Chimney's Horse Farm, good eating and wonderful conversation/together time with very dear friends was all part of our trip but a highlight was our stay at Storybook Inn. Beautiful accommodations, fine service and delicious breakfasts exceeded our expectations. It is comparable to "Blackberry Farm" but...

My wife is from the area so a couple of times a year we travel down to place flowers on the graves of relatives. We decided to make a weekend of it this time and booked into the Storybook Inn. The website made reservations a snap. We were cheerfully greeted upon arrival, oriented to the B and B, and made...

My husband and I stayed at the Storybook Inn this past weekend. We stayed in Somewhere in Time suite. Every expectation that we had for this weekend was exceeded during our stay!

We enjoyed our stay immensely. Elise provided warm hospitality. We were close to destinations on the Bourbon Trail, and enjoyed the beautiful lodgings and delicious breakfast. Would definitely recommend it, although a bit pricey, was well worth it.

The inn, the innkeeper, and the staff at A Storybook Inn define the best qualities of a bed and breakfast. Having stayed in bed and breakfasts for 25 years, we are hard to impress ... but we certainly were by the care and attention given to guests and to the facilities at the Inn. This is a wonderful place and...

This inn is wonderful. Versailles is an old historic town. It is close to horse farms and distilleries. The inn is lovely throughout. Not only is a sumptious and delicious breakfast served, but at tea time there are many beverages including wine plus hors doerves and cookies. Our bedroom was large and lovely. Our friends were in a very large...

We stayed in the Casablanca room for our honeymoon, while we did the KY Bourbon Trail. The location was perfect for us to stay there and hit the distilleries! We were really impressed with the breakfasts that we had in the mornings, and with the snacks and wine that were left out in the common areas in the evenings. The...
