We stayed here for a weekend anniversary trip. Very clean and beautiful home. Beds were extremely comfortable. Close to downtown Lexington, distilleries, and wineries. Quiet and cozy stay. Breakfast was phenomenal. I highly recommend staying here.

Suzann graciously accommodated our late arrival into the Blue Grass Airport. Her breakfasts (served on the porch in nice weather) are delicious, very filling, and unique - the presentation is...

This is a lovely B and B with many antiques that is close to many attractions such as Camp Nelson, The Kentucky Horse Park, Shaker Village, and Keeneland. The hostess was very accommodating and the food was excellent!

We had a very restful stay - very quiet and comfortable! Suzann is a wonderful hostess and a great cook! We had a delightful breakfast on the veranda and a to-go cup of coffee for the road. Would highly recommend! If we're ever in Lexington again, we would most definitely stay again. Can't beat the quality combined with the price...

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.
