From the moment you step inside A Storybook Inn, you’ll feel like you’ve been whisked away to a simpler time. This classic Kentucky bed and breakfast oozes charm, elegance, and an atmosphere that is reminiscent of the classic South. The Inn has a colorful history that goes back to the early 1840s and remainsan important fixture in the city of Versailles to this day.

A Storybook Inn is located right between the state capital, Frankfort, and Lexington, the “Horse Capital of the World,” with just a quick 25 minute drive to either city. For those who are coming to enjoy a relaxing weekend away from the busy city, the Inn is an easy hour drive from Louisville, KY, or a 1.5 hour drive from Cincinnati, OH.

Although there are seven rooms at the Inn, each has been lovingly remodeled and has its own personality. The Gone With the Wind suite is a guest favorite, with luxurious splashes of red and gold, a mahogany poster bed alongside a fireplace, and a separate sitting area to relax and enjoy an afternoon cup of tea.

For those looking for the ultimate in grand opulence, look no further than the Somewhere In Time suite. After you walk through the private hallway in the main inn to get to this suite, you’ll realize just how grandiose and large it really is. From the 20-foot sitting room to the sweeping open plan of the bedroom, his and hers vanity cabinet in the bathroom, or the  2-person air whirlpool, it’s no wonder why this room is often booked as a bridal suite! Add a touch of sophistication to your stay with an extra package that includes hand-dipped chocolate, French champagne, or a cheese plate.

Although bed and breakfasts are known for their warm welcome and friendly atmosphere, A Storybook Inn takes it even further with their gracious southern hospitality. Endearing touches, such as fresh homemade cookies, a fully-stocked beverage bar, and hand-pressed sheets are just some of the things that you’ll enjoy during your stay. 

If regular breakfasts don’t surprise you anymore, come visit A Storybook Inn for the weekend and you’ll instantly change your mind. Innkeeper Elise is serious about breakfast, and it shows: she even notes that, “When the word ‘Breakfast’ is in the name of your business, [it] should be delightfully memorable!”  

The Storybook Inn breakfast is a true ‘farm to table kitchen’ because the dishes are made fresh every morning and only contain organic, non-GMO ingredients and fruits, eggs, and vegetables from the local farmer’s market. In fact, Innkeeper Elise is so committed to seeing happy and healthy guests that she can whip up low-carb, low-fat, and even gluten-free breakfasts. Oh, and have we mentioned that a multiple-course meal will be waiting for you at the lush atrium every morning?   

The Storybook Inn is the perfect home base for intrepid travelers who want to explore everything that central Kentucky has to offer, whether that’s watching the Kentucky Derby in May, exploring the many historical houses dotted around the region, or making your way through distilleries on the Bourbon Trail. It’s no wonder why they were chosen by San Francisco Magazine as the “Place to Stay on the Bourbon Trail.”
