About Our Bed & Breakfast
Our beautiful home was originally built in the mid 1800's.
After many years of neglect, we purchased the property in
2000 and immediately began a plan to restore the old
warmth and charm that we could see had existed so many
We completely gutted the building (as you can see in the
photos to the right), save for the original floors and
beautiful staircase. We upgraded all of the utilities, and
added the modern comforts that help to make your stay
most enjoyable, like central heating and air conditioning,
ceiling fans, whirlpool tubs, a cable TV in each guest room,
and a first-class kitchen.
On the first floor, you'll find The Thoroughbred Room with
a private bath featuring a whirlpool tub and dual
shower-heads. The parlor has a piano, T.V., stereo and
sitting area with fireplace, where you can relax as you
please. The formal dining room is perfect for a quaint
meal, and the large, bright "Event Room" is ideal for larger
group gatherings. The modern kitchen is a natural
gathering place (what kitchen isn't!?) and here you'll find a
small table for an informal snack or a quick bite to eat.
The second floor has 3 guest rooms, each with it's own full
size bath. There is also a small balcony where you can
relax in the comforts of home.
From the kitchen, step out onto the secluded patio
surrounded by seasonal flowers. Smoking is permitted on
the patio, as well as on the front porch where you'll find
rocking chairs for your enjoyment to finish-off the day.
Whether you're just passing through or planning an event,
you'll find our staff ready to help make your experience a
The Hill House is located in the CENTER of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, which
make it the perfect base for your daily trips. We're just 3 miles from Maker's
Mark Distillery and only a few minutes from Heaven Hill, Jim Beam, Wild
Turkey, Barton Brands and more.
This area of Kentucky has much more to offer other than the Bourbon Trail. Here
you'll find My Old Kentucky Home, made famous by Stephan Foster. The
Kentucky Dinner Train will take you through the hills of Kentucky while you
enjoy a wonderful meal and the vistas. There are several Civil War sites here as
well as the first settlements of the Catholic Church. Please visit the Special
Interests page for websites and more information.
Our southern hospitality shows not only in our warm home, but in everything we
do for you. Each day there is a happy hour catered to your schedule and desires as
well as an abundant home-cooked breakfast that will have you smacking your
lips! You won't go away hungry, that's for sure!
The old Victorian farm house that is now The Hill House, was first built in the
1860's. I was a private home for all those years until falling into disrepair in the
1990's. We bought it in 2000 and began restoring it to it's former beauty. It has
been a bed and breakfast since and we hope you will come and enjoy it with us.
We'll keep a light on for ya!
