“Absolutely excellent”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

This Inn is absolutely wonderful - immaculately decorated and clean, in a charming town, and a very friendly welcome. The attention to detail was extremely high, with both hot and cold drinks available whenever we wanted them. The breakfasts were fantastic, delicious, healthy and served beautifully. This is a very special and romantic place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in My Fair Lady, which was lovely and despite being on the road side of the property was e...

I have always been confused why people don't stay in B and B's when traveling instead of large chain hotels...and Storybook drives that point home again. Elise {the owner) has done an incredible job of creating an environment that exemplifies the hospitality of the South. Designed to perfection with an added bonus of a sunroom ( where you will enjoy a fabulous breakfast ) overlooking a water feature and manicured grounds.
While Elise was away Jim and Susan were keeping things running smoothly. These two people know how to make you feel welcome and ....Susan is a gourmet cook! I must say... I have stayed in many many BandB's over the years, never have I had such a fabulous breakfast. The presentation rivaled any 5 star restaurant you would go to.
You will never ( did I say never?) find a HOTEL that caters so much to its guests or find an accommodation so impeccably clean. This isn't just a place to stay its an experience. B and B's the way they were meant to be. Bag the hotel chains and treat yourself like royalty for few days!

Room Tip: Things I would highly recommend: Buffalo Trace distillery tour and Woodford Reserve distillery tour...

Where to begin! My most amazing B&B experience to date. It is obvious that Elise takes pride in A Storybook Inn and it is evident in her diligent attention to details. The rooms are luxuriously and immaculately decorated, the inn is spotless, the grounds are gorgeous and the food is creative and fantastic. I rarely write reviews, but I couldn't miss the chance to help others find this treasure. Thank you Elise!

Best Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed at by far. Beautifully decorated ultra clean accommodations. Tastiest healthy breakfasts ever in an awesome ambience. An innkeeper who goes to great lengths to ensure each guest is comfortable and happy.
What more can anyone ask?
This is a six star B&B - simple as that.

Room Tip: Renting the separate 2000 sq ft+ Is perfect for a family or group of friends.

The Storybook Inn is a gem. The house has been lovingly restored and updated with every modern convenience. The food is fantastic and Elise goes out of her way to make every guest feel welcomed and pampered. We enjoyed our experience tremendously and will definitely return to this lovely B&B. Amy R.
