Bourbon Manor is conveniently located near the many Bardstown attractions and offers several VIP Bourbon Tour & Tasting Excursion Packages that can be added to an overnight stay. Let us help customize a memorable, stress-free Bourbon Trail Experience of a lifetime. Plan your visit to a place where Bourbon is celebrated year-round - where we sip our Bourbon in grand Southern style. There is something for everyone here, every day of the year: My Old Kentucky Home State Park, My Old Kentucky Dinner Train, Stephen Foster Musical, Historic Trains and Museums, Civil War historical sites such as Abraham Lincoln's birthplace and boyhood home, Abbey of Gethsemani - home to the first Trappist Monks Settlement in the U.S., Kentucky's Wine Trail, and of course, the 12 world-famous Bourbon Distilleries. Bourbon Manor is a Bourbon Lover's Paradise. Enjoy our Bourbon Heritage involving the Brown Family and 2 stately Pre-Civil War Plantation Mansions (Circa 1810 and 1825). The Brown Family started the first commercial bottled Bourbon known as Old Forester, which is now designated the official Bourbon of the Kentucky Derby. Today, the property is an award-winning B&B and the first Bourbon-themed B&B in the World! Enjoy our spacious antique-appointed guest rooms, complete with modern amenities, fine art work, blissful bedding, and beautiful park-like setting. Our onsite Bourbon Bar & Lounge, The Bunghole Bourbon Bar, a 3-level historic tobacco barn, features the best selection of Bourbons in Bardstown - with over 150 Bourbons, Wines, and Crafted Beer. Our Full Country Gourmet Breakfast always includes dessert infused with Bourbon, of course. We also have an onsite Spa for some pampering after a long-day of tours - Couple's Massage is the most frequently requested treatment. We invite you to be our guests! We look forward to seeing you soon! Until then, CHEERS! Todd & Tyler, Owners/Innkeepers
Todd Allen and Tyler Horton have enjoyed hosting and developing friendships with their guests for 20 years. Having restored and operated award-winning Maple Hill Manor Bed & Breakfast in Springfield, Kentucky, they have expanded to include Bourbon Manor in their inn portfolio. Their passion for historic preservation, cooking, gardening, hospitality, spoiling and delighting their guests, and having great fun while multi-tasking has made them a success story among the B&B Industry.
Todd and Tyler’s love for Bourbon and promoting Bourbon Country created their desire to live and operate a second B&B in the Bourbon Capital of The World. Together, they share an exciting vision of transforming Bourbon Manor into a unique Bourbon destination…centrally located on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, it's a Bourbon Lover’s Paradise, where Bourbon is celebrated and enjoyed every day of the year!
Todd’s great-great uncle, Colonel E. H. Taylor, started the Old Taylor brand of Bourbon in Frankfort, and his great grandfather worked at Wild Turkey in Lawrenceburg for 40 years. Todd has helped promote the Bourbon Distilleries and other related attractions since 2001. His favorite beverage of choice continues, and always will be Kentucky Bourbon.
Todd has been a 18-year Board Member of the Bed & Breakfast Association of Kentucky, serving as 2x president, VP, Corresponding Secretary, and Chaired several Committees such as Marketing, Green Lodging, Fundraising, Education, and Legislative. He has served as Advisory Council Board Member of the Professional Association of Innkeepers International (PAII). He was most recently elected to the Bardstown Tourism Commission Board, where he serves as Chairman of the Board.
Tyler’s fondness of Bourbon stems from his award-winning recipes, many which include Bourbon as a major ingredient. He aspires to complete his cookbook project, which will include many of the Bourbon-related recipes from his experience as Chef at Maple Hill Manor over the last 20 years. He enjoys the locally-produced Bourbons and has learned which ones are suitable for those on a Gluten-Free Diet.
We invite you to be our guests. We would love to share our favorite Bourbon cocktails, Bourbon recipes, and interesting and educational Bourbon activities and events with you!
We hope to see you soon!
