Owners Frankie and Linda Cambron run this charming B&B in their 19th Century house designed in the Italianate style with original floors and trim. This beautiful Pre Civil War mansion, located in the heart of the Bourbon Trail country, is also a working horse farm. Frankie and Linda extended genuine southern charm. Breakfast was hearty, huge and heavenly; the rooms elegant, comfortable and charming; the hosts genuine, fun and intelligent. I learned about horses, peacocks, American history, farm politics, “southern-speak” and what it means to be a Kentuckian. Thanks Frankie and Linda for the spirited conversations, erudite discussions and for sharing your genteel farm.

This charming B&B and working horse farm is located just five minutes from the charming town of Bardstown (the Bourbon capital of the world that was voted the most beautiful town in America by USA Today). Frankie and Linda Cambron run this charming B&B with a downhome yet elegant finesse only achievable by true southern gentry-folk. I can think of at least five great reasons to stay here: First, there’s the pre-Civil War mansion, built in the 1850s in the Italianate style with much of the original trim and tram. Second, are the rooms (four of them), all with private baths, and elegantly furnished with comfortable king or queen-sized beds made for the finickiest kitten. Third, is the hearty farm breakfast prepared with dedication and with the sweetest smile by Linda (e.g., sausages, eggs, French toast with cherry compote and fresh fruit salad. Fourth, is the genuine country pace of a horse farm (complete with peacocks, ducks, dogs and cats) embedded in an exotic culture and history of bourbon-making. Fifth, is Frankie the dilettante Kentuckian—both humble and erudite—who entertains with hilarious stories, educates with personalized history of the region, and charms with genuine southern humility. OK…there’s a Sixth reason: the pool. Yes, the pool!

I’m Toulouse, the COOL Travel cat!

We traveled 3 hours from home to the Bardstown area and our first Bed & Breakfast experience. We couldn't have asked for better hosts. Frankie and Linda helped us with our plans...places to visit, places to eat, etc. while we stayed in a gorgeous room reminiscent of early 19th century America. The bed was super comfortable, and Linda tidied up every time we left. They were accommodating in every way, allowing us to ride horses (love Cherokee), take home peacock feathers, choose the time we wanted to eat ( a wonderful, full breakfast), as well as come and go as we pleased. We were introduced to some of their friends, who, by the time we left, felt like our friends as well. By the time our three days were up, we felt as if we were leaving family after a fun visit. Already planning to go back, this time with the kids. They have heard all about Frankie and Linda, and can't wait to visit as well! Super, super people and a wonderfully friendly, historic town to boot!

Room Tip: All rooms are great with your own bathroom....not a bad room to be had. Quiet everywhere, blinds on...

Although we had corresponded previously with the proprietors, we weren't able to stay due to conflicts in our schedule. We did, however, drop by unexpectedly (a "no-no" according to Horse Country etiquette experts) on a Monday morning as our two children –aged 11 and 14– were desperate to ride a horse or even get close to one. Although Frankie was busy tending to his business, he graciously welcomed and accommodated us, and even gave our children some much-needed riding tips. All the while, my wife happily sat and read magazines in the air conditioned comfort of his and his spouse's beautiful home. Afterwards, he showed us the gorgeous guest rooms, which ooze Southern charm, and as a parting gift, gave us a bouquet of peacock feathers to take with us (in addition to horses, the stables are home to many a happy kitten and peacocks). It was our true pleasure to meet a true Southern Gentleman and to discover the multi-faceted charms of beautiful Kentucky! Next trip to the Bluegrass State, we'll make sure to plan and reserve in advance! Thank you again, Frankie!

Room Tip: Make sure to book ahead of time!

Great hosts, great place! Frankie and Linda couldn't have been more accommodating and hospitable. Their home is an old Kentucky home faithfully rebuilt by Frankie, and authentically furnished by Linda. The Peacocks, Horses, and Cats just add to the ambiance. Highly recommended! South of Louisville, close to Bardstown and the Bourbon Trail.

One word of advice - DO NOT count on your GPS to get you there. The rural Kentucky database is apparently not as well developed as you would hope; get directions from the host or a credible source before you go.

I have never stayed in a B&B and I must say I was pleasantly surprised.
Linda & Frankie hospitality was outstanding. I felt like I was visiting with family maybe even better. The house was decorated beautiful. I enjoyed looking at the horses and peacocks and having that farm feeling.
I would definitely recommend this place and I plan on revisiting.
Thank you Linda & Frankie

We found this B & B by chance, and what a bit of luck it was. Frankie and Linda are great, full of Southern hospitality and so welcoming. The house is lovely and has been completely refurbished by the couple, and the bedrooms are big and comfortable with every amenity necessary. The bed was extremely comfortable with a great mattress, and very good quality linens. Breakfasts are tasty and generous, and it was great to chat with Frankie, who is a great character, and learn about his life as a horse trainer and breeder, and to visit his horses. It is very quiet and out of the town, about 10 mins drive, which suited us fine. We would love to return and hope to do so one day.
