We arrived to an Inn that looked nothing like the wonderful photos online. A gravel road led up to a poorly maintained looking inn. There was a car with the hood up that looked like someone was working on it and junk here and there. The outside of the building and surrounding areas did not look inviting at all. My... More

I will preface this post by stating we have only stayed in two other B&B's. We stayed here for a football game because all the hotels were booked in Lexington due to Breeder's Cup. The driveway is gravel, poorly maintained. Our low car scraped several times. As we walked to the door no lights were on outside, the sidewalk was... More

After a harrowing drive to find the place; about 20 minutes out of town on poorly maintained country roads, we were greeted with a shamble of a place. Gravel road access must be the least of the issues. We were actually afraid to get out of the car. the place appears to be in a state of poor condition. The... More

It was such a pleasurable experience...out in the beautiful Kentucky countryside...the beauty of nature. While we're passing through driving the new Corvette (the gravel driveway was a bit of a challenge with low clearance), but the morning walk in the mist was well worth it. Did I mention the splendid breakfast? Ira Bates, the innkeeper (homeowner) greets you in his... More

A spontaneous trip turned into a lovely adventure, once we reached the Pinnacle View Inn. We went down to KY for some good biking and we're thrilled to fine we were upgraded to a very lovely suite equipped with spectacular furnishings and lovely decor.

Chain hotels are standardized and impersonal, but a B&B is most memorable when it reflects the proprietor’s individuality and personality. On a hilltop with long views of the Kentucky countryside as well as access to Berea and its crafts, Pinnacle View Inn stands out for the green ingenuity and story-telling skills of its proprietor, as well as the sumptuous made-to-order...

We like "off the beaten path" places that are unique and quiet. Pinnacle View Inn is out a little bit further than off the beaten path, but your drive out into the Kentucky countryside beyond Berea will put you into a clean, comfortable, contemporary home built by the owner/inn keeper whose attention to "green' design is commendable. For example, the... More

If you like B&B's that are located away from town and traffic, this is a place for you. The inn is noted as a "Green" property. We felt the accommodations were comfortable and clean.

My husband and I spent the weekend hiking the pinnacles and couldn't have chosen a more perfect B and B. Our room and bathroom were large and clean.

My husband loved the strawberry and cream cheese stuffed French... More
