Owner/innkeepers Missy & John Hillock take great pride in their property, which they personally designed and constructed in 2015. With every comfort and convenience in mind, they’ve created a space that many guests warmly refer to as “a Pinterest house come to life”. They’ve married the look and feel of a traditional Kentucky estate home with European influences of the French and English cottages they’ve traveled to over the years. And with all the creative bourbon touches, there’s no denying you’re in the bluegrass state.
Whether you’re a bourbon newbie or a self-proclaimed bourbon nerd, we’ve got the experience you’re looking for. Let us share our passion for "America's native spirit" with you. Whether it’s discussing the distilling process, sharing a cocktail recipe, or recommending a hard-to find bourbon, you’ll enrich your knowledge by experiencing the tradition of Kentucky bourbon like a local.
Chateau Bourbon provides an elegant setting for its fun, welcoming atmosphere. Leave your stuffiness at the door and let us show you what southern hospitality is all about. With a cocktail in hand, come sit on our porch and let your worries fall by the wayside. Located within the vibrant and walkable ‘new urbanist’ community of Norton Commons, you can ‘park & walk’ during your stay with everything you need just beyond our doorstep. You’ll enjoy the locally-owned restaurants & boutiques set amidst the beautiful homes and park-like green spaces. Our east end Louisville location is just 10 miles from downtown, so you’re only minutes from everything the big city has to offer.
Whether you’re stamping your Kentucky Bourbon Trail passport at area bourbon distilleries, placing a winning wager at historic Churchill Downs, dining at our nationally-recognized restaurants, or exploring the majesty of thoroughbred horse country, Chateau Bourbon is the perfect home-base for your Kentucky adventure.
