My wife and I stay at B&Bs whenever possible. Often they are in town homes, of an age, that have been restored and have lots of character and perhaps a few quirks. Essence is very different. It is out in horse country on the north side of Lexington in a very rural setting but at the same time very convenient to Lexington and especially some of the farms you are likely to want to see in the area. It is also a large modern home with excellent facilities. As mentioned in another review, this experience is very like visiting with friends. Christy and Jerry are excellent hosts who make you feel very welcome. Their website says something like "continental breakfast" but Christy puts together wonderful breakfasts that are varied and delicious. We have never visited Lexington before but probably will again and when we do we'll stay at Essence of the Bluegrass.
