Bracing ourselves for the rat race journey into the capital of Kentucky on a Saturday night, we were met by tranquillity in this sleepy town. The Meeting House was o a leafy avenue of elegant houses surrounded by plum trees. The interior was beautifully adorned with antiques and collectables such as hats, spectacles and shoes. Our hosts were interesting, informed and enjoying talking to their guests and sharing stories. Breakfast was a culinary experience with a fruit "sorbet", a lovely cooked breakfast served with freshly baked poppyseed bread. The room was extremely roomy, light and airy with a knitting basket for casual knitters who fancied a go after many years. The location of the Meeting House was close to downtown with some good restaurants as recommended by our hosts and from there it was easy to cross the river to walk right up to the front door of the Capitol building and the Governor's mansion and gardens. A lovely location for a city break.
