The Bennett House B&B is almost completely furnished with authentic antiques from the 18th century. The rooms are cozy and warm and Richard, our host, made the most delicious pecan French toast omelet with fresh fruit for breakfast. We absolutely loved our one night stay.

My wife and I had a great stay at the Bennett House Memorial Day weekend. This was our first time staying at a B&B so I can only compare it to staying at a hotel. Booking was a breeze directly through the Bennett House website, host was very pleasant and helpful and the house is a real gem located downtown...

This old, historic building on the edge of downtown Richmond, a stone's throw from Eastern Kentucky University is filled with antiques, but has up to date wi-fi and flat screen tv's. This elegant small hotel is the perfect place to stay if you are attending an event at the new EKU Arts Arena or a college football or basketball game....

Early in September I booked online a reservation at The Bennett house on Expedia and received confirmation immediately. The next morning I received a call from Richard Smart telling me that Expedia should not have allowed the reservation saying that they charge him a 30% fee and wanted to know if I would cancel which I did for 10% discount....

We stay at the Bennett House when we visit Richmond, and it's always clean and comfortable. The service is great, and breakfast is a treat. The house is beautiful, and the owners have done a wonderful job preserving it. The woodwork is amazing!

The hosts were very business oriented and accommodating. My ride was being threatened by overcast skies and drizzle, so I chose the Bennett House on very short notice and was greeted warmly by the host at the door. The setting, which is atop a rise and walking distance from all the city and government workings, tells you how important this...

Our three night stay at the Bennett House was an incredible experience! The House and our room were eye candy. The delicious breakfasts filling and a treat to the taste buds thanks to our host, Richard. Absolutely no suggestions for improvement.

My husband stayed at The Bennett House on a recent weekend visit to Richmond, KY. The reservation procedure was easy and efficient. On the day of our arrival, the innkeeper called to confirm our arrival time. The Bennett House is lovely and well appointed. Our downstairs room was spacious and cozy. We had a large bathroom with plenty of towels!!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Richmond Kentucky's only bed and breakfast offers more than a comfortable stay;it brings to life a rich history, elegant surroundings and a delicious full-course breakfast. The Bennett House is a Queen Anne-style house with Romanesque detailing, build in 1889. Much of its European influence likely comes from statesman Cassius M. Clay's daughter Sarah, daughter-in-law of the home's original owner. Now the Bennett House offers you modern comforts, privacy, seclusion, plus the convenience of being within walking distance of downtown Richmond's shopping and dining. ... more   less
