We stayed two nights at the Talbott Inn/Tavern and had a great time. This is a wonderful old building from late 1700's well persevered and a great oppurtunity for us to get a look into life from back in the day. The fried chicken was worth the wait but nothing compares to the history of this place. Adding to the lore of the place being haunted is a nice little above ground cemetary just steps down a narrow alley behind the Inn. Also right next door is the old jail complete with a stockade in the front lawn. I should note the help locks up at night and goes home leaving you with your own front door key. Sunday night it was just the wife and I and whatever ghost haunt the place. 6 KY Bourdon distilleries including Jim Beam and Markers Mark are within a few mins drive of The Talbott Inn. The whole downtown area is great with dozens of old buildings and beautiful homes from the 17 & 1800s. Great Stay!!!
