There are two rooms and we rented both of them. Each had its own bath. You had to go outside the room into the hallway to the bathrooms, but that...

The location is near Lexington and the Quaker Village which we found very interesting. We plan on staying at the 1898 Red Bud when we go...

We arrived and were quickly checked in, offered homemade banana bread and coffee/tea, and shown around. What a lovely place to stay! Our room was clean, decorated with antiques and had a comfortable bed. Our breakfast was delicious-kudos to Suzanne, plenty to eat and served on china.

This was our first stay at 1898 Red Bud and we won't hesitate to return. The entire place was spotless. We returned in the evening to find delicious lemon bars and hot water for tea. Breakfast in the morning was amazing and we ate on the veranda. Great hosts!

This was all of our first times staying at a B&B. The home itself was just beautiful, not to mention the gorgeous outdoors. The breakfast was nothing like we have ever had before, it was fantastic!! Suzann and Dan were great hosts.
