Although we were only able to stay one night, we will return! This inn is a real find in the middle of a beautiful landscape. Our room (Casablanca) was furnished with gorgeous, yet very comfortable furniture and a bed that guaranteed a wonderful night's sleep. The breakfast the next morning rivaled any that I've ever had - delicious, healthy, and...

My wife and I stayed three nights at this incredible place. Built originally in 1838, it has been lovingly and meticulously restored to absolute perfection. We stayed in the Somewhere in Time suite. The amenities were world class. The location is perfect and the grounds are stunning. Now about the food......Susan who is the better half of innkeepers Jim and...

Its very unusual to have a fabulous experience somewhere and then return a year later to have expectations matched…and then exceeded! A Storybook Inn is one of the most beautiful homes I have ever stayed in. But it also offers a serene and peaceful embrace, both inside and out. The gardens are exquisite. The breakfasts are exceptional. I must eat...

My wife and I stayed three nights at A Storybook Inn. We were in the Somewhere in Time suite, which is gorgeous. We enjoyed lots of "down time" in our suite, choosing books from the extensive collection, enjoying the cookies that Elise left us each afternoon, and soaking in the huge jetted tub. We would have taken the tub home...

We loved our time at A Storybook Inn. Elise was a wonderful host as well as chef. The rooms are lavishly decorated, and yet they still have the little convenient touches, such as docking stations by the bed and on the desk and heated towels. The grounds are lovely and we were encouraged to enjoy walking or sitting there. The...

Janet and I have stayed at a lot of B&Bs over the years and always put them in one of 2 classes those we'd go back to and those we wouldn't but now I have a third and that is those we can't wait to go back to. We stayed in the Gone with The Wind Room. Awesome. Very quiet...

We stayed here for two nights while attending a seminar at UK. It was wonderful. Elise the innkeeper and her staff were great. The breakfasts were wonderful and the Inn was top notch. We're recommending it to all of our friends and we'll be back for sure. Don't hesitate to stay here.

Elise has created a truly epic experience for guests and a perfect place to get away. From curating her breakfasts and snacks to meet strict dietary requests to her warmth and advice on local spots to presenting local foods and sweets, she truly is the best hostess. I would say the best B&B experience I have ever had and en...

Hi Ava, We enjoyed hosting you and your dear friends so much! You and your group (I remember everyone's names!) were so sweet when you left, I was deeply touched. A few tears for real. I so hope that when your travels bring you this way again that you will for sure give us the joy of hosting you again!...

Just came into town for the night. We stayed in the Guest House and loved it. Staff is extremely friendly and breakfast was delicious. Highly recommend The Storybook Inn if you are traveling near Lexington.

This was a fantastic inn close to Woodford Reserve, Wild Turkey, Four Roses distilleries. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with each one having its own personality- we stayed in Casablanca. Common areas are spacious with plenty of games, books, and movies on property. Plenty of parking- grounds and house were immaculately clean. We loved the attention to detail...
