Essence of the Bluegrass
Ranked #3 of 6 Lexington B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 November 2011

Wow! We so enjoyed our stay at Essence of the Bluegrass. Jerry is a great host! When he says make yourself at home, he means it! The beds, the views, and the fabulous morning pastries! The B & B is located close to anything you'd want to see or do, but far enough from the hustle and bustle, you can have a true country experience. We are looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: If you enjoy the sunrise, ask for the Bourbon Room. Beautiful!

This was our first bed and breakfast experience and it was lovely. The home is so beautiful as well as the surrounding farms. Jerry has thought of every necessity including wi-fi internet, TVs, towels and soaps, snacks, etc. The house is sparkling clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the shower nice and relaxing. He puts on a lovely breakfast, fresh fruit, juice, cereals, etc. There was a whole spread even though we were the only guests. He even went downtown to get amazing pastries. We really enjoyed playing the piano, playing with the farm dogs, and visiting with the (very sweet) horses.

Room Tip: We stayed in the least expensive room and it was great. Apparently the Keeneland room is very specia...

My husband & I were looking for a relaxing, comfortable & beautiful place to stay in Lexington.
We found it, Essence of the Bluegrass was a perfect fit for us. Our host Jerry, was gracious & accommodating. We stayed in the Keeneland room, gorgeous! Overlooking the paddocks of beautiful horses, bonus.
We've been staying in B&Bs for 20yrs, this was one of the best!

Charming, convenient, quaint, and comfortable. The innkeeper Jerry was helpful and couldn't have made us feel more relaxed. We can't wait to return!

This was our first experience with a Bed and Breakfast and we couldn't have been happier. The Essence of Bluegrass was a beautiful, clean and hospitable place to stay. Close to downtown Lexington and right by the Kentucky Horse Park. Great place to stay for a nice, relaxing, quick get away! We were even allowed to feed and visit the owners' horses.
