The Eighth Pole Inn is a beautiful horse farm in an equally beautiful location. The accommodations are sophisticated, tasteful and state of the art. Jason is a great, down to earth host. Ask him about horses, it's his passion. Can't wait to return.

My husband and I stayed at this bed and breakfast for a five day visit to Lexington during the Keeneland fall meet in October. We usually stay in hotels so this was our first B&B experience. This is a working horse farm. It is a peaceful setting surrounded by rolling hills with horses dotting the landscape. There were mares and...

My wife and i stayed at this lovely property as part of our honeymoon trip. The only criticism is we couldn't stay longer!!! Jason was very welcoming and even helped us out with where to go on the next part of our trip and what area's to visit.

We agree with many of the previously posted comments. Room & common areas are beautiful & location is perfect. However, we found that the daily servicing of the room could be improved. For example, upon arrival we found left over coffee and coffee grounds from previous guest, glasses missing, and trouble operating the TV (Jason said "you'll figure it out")....

We pulled into this place after booking hours earlier. We had read some reviews hence we booked. The place was awesome from the gates at the road to let us in to the beauty of the land. The place was immaculate and very modern which we like instead of the traditional antique feel. We were greeted by Jason who showed...

Eighth Pole Inn is an amazing place, especially if you want to get a taste of the "good life" in Bluegrass country. Beautiful horses are part of the scenery, and they are even more than that, thanks to Jason, a remarkable individual and host. My friend and I learned so much from him and enjoyed going to the barn in...

The Eighth Pole has it all - a wonderful horse farm, a great host in Jason, a beautifully restored house, an extremely comfortable, spacious and well-appointed room and a great breakfast. We want to come back to Lexington just to stay there again. Jason provides excellent recommendations on restaurants as well.

When we arrived, Jason immediately showed us around the Inn and up to our room in the Rosalie Suite. He even made our dinner reservations at a fantastic restaurant! The room/home is beautiful, well kept, and very clean. For breakfast, we were able to choose how we wanted our eggs cooked which was nice and the food was delicious. We...
