Kentucky is famous for its natural beauty, both in the countryside, the horses and the people. For all there is to do outside the Inn, inside the Inn is also the perfect for catching up on your rest, napping, reading or birdwatching. The luxury bedding and well-appointed suites invite one to linger in bed but the delectable breakfasts made with local ingredients tempt one to rush downstairs and indulge. Fresh ground organic coffee, quality ingredients, tasteful, upscale décor and attentive, caring service, surrounded by in a setting of glorious natural beauty is what A Storybook Inn…so ‘storybook.’

Food & Wine
Beautiful mornings start in our 50-foot glass conservatory facing our wonderful old courtyard and 100+ year old water feature with bird watching thrown in for fun.
The smell of freshly ground organic Mexican coffee may awaken you or the smell of thick sliced bacon roasting in the oven.
We make our breakfasts fresh for you and never serve assembly line buffets where breakfast foods tend to lose freshness with each passing moment.
We take quality very seriously. We use only real ingredients in our breakfast…real maple syrup, organic flour, organic local pastured eggs, fresh fruits and veggies, as much as available seasonally, local and organic. What we don’t use is bleached flour, high fructose corn syrup or trans-fats. Your cook has a background in nursing and nutrition most definitely could be called a “cook with a conscience.”
