Sleep in a country inn, mining camp, church, or log cabin at a Kentucky B&B

Sleep in a country inn, mining camp, church, or log cabin at a Kentucky B&B ( CENTRAL KENTUCKY — Antebellum mansions, country inns and manors, historic homes and farms, log cabins, mining camps and a deconsecrated church. Kentucky bed and breakfasts have many different names and they are located all across the state, from its river and lakes regions, to its fabled horse country and rugged Cave Country, to its Appalachian region, and beyond. Kentucky Bed&Breakfast Association members have different views and vistas, individual style and personality, but all meet and exceed exceptional quality standards for cleanliness, safety, hospitality, and comfort. Visit to see (and book) inns with the gold seal, “inspected and approved.”

Different beds for different heads

Member B&Bs are all about the unique experience: the former stained-glass-laden church, now Christopher’s B&B in bustling Bellevue in Northern Kentucky; the country elegance of Gambill Mansion Bed&Breakfast in the Kentucky Appalachians; a private cabin at Paw Paw’s Landing in southeastern Kentucky; Barthell Mining Camp B&B and the 1869 Shaker Tavern in the southern part of the state; Whispering Winds Inn Bed&Breakfast, a contemporary inn with a resort vibe that puts guests within steps of boating, fishing, hiking, camping, horseback riding, and golf in the western reaches of Kentucky; the River House that overlooks the Mighty Ohio not far from Owensboro; the 1888 Historic Rocking Horse Manor in the Derby Region’s “Old Louisville” neighborhood; and the Doctor’s Inn in arts-centric Berea in the heart of the Bluegrass.

These B&Bs, as well as all Association member B&Bs, offer unique 'savor the flavor' experiences, from Log Cabin to Gothic Revival to Antebellum to Victorian architectural perspectives and in a variety of settings, from stretches of white fence trimmed paddocks to rolling vineyards to rugged mountains to cityscapes just steps from one-of-a-kind shopping and museum hopping.

You all come back now

With the Association’s “Frequent Stay” program, members welcome visitors to sample the state’s treasure trove of unique B&Bs, from one region to another. Download a “Passport to Kentucky’s Fine Southern Porches” to earn a Buy 1 Night/Get 1 Night Free Voucher by staying at a member B&B at any three leisure times or any combination of five leisure and business times. Just visit the website, print off the “Frequent Stay” passport, and present it to any BBAK Innkeeper where you have just stayed. The innkeeper will place a stamp in one of the boxes with the inn’s name, innkeeper initials, and date of your stay. (Consecutive nights do not count for more than one stamp.) Upon collecting and fulfilling the required stamps, guests mail their passports to BBAK for a Buy 1 Night/Get 1 Night FREE Voucher, valid for one full year from the issue date.

Pay it forward

For visitors who want to share their unique B&B experiences with others, BBAK also offers gift certificates. Because they have no expiration date and can be issued in any dollar amount for use at participating member inns (individual inn policies apply), they are a versatile gift for all occasions, including as a “thank you” to employees. Gift recipients will long remember being treated to a relaxing, amenity-rich, only-in-Kentucky B&B experience. Not only that, when visitors to the BBAK website sign up for the association’s quarterly newsletter for specials, discounts, and exclusive offers, they will be eligible to win a free night at a member B&B at quarterly drawings.

There’s always room at the table

Guests who’ve sampled and salivated over breakfast at a Kentucky B&B and want to extend the experience to their own dining room tables can now do so with the new cookbook, Room at the Table: A Collection of Recipes from the Premier Bed and Breakfasts of Kentucky, published in commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the Bed&Breakfast Association of Kentucky. Blending the finest ingredients together — travel, history, and food — the book is as satisfying a read as is a stay at a member B&B. Published by Kentucky publisher McClanahan House, the cookbook features gourmet B&B recipes and stunning color photography of both the Bluegrass and the dishes by master photographer Robin Victor Goetz of Northern Kentucky. It may be purchased through the BBAK website a cost of US$24.95 plus tax and shipping/handling.

Visit and book a room at a cottage, a mining camp, a farm, a plantation, a manor, a manse, a winery, or other uniquely Kentucky B&B lodging and make the kind of memories you get when experiencing the unusual and distinctive. Look for the BBAK’s gold seal carrying the words, “All inns inspected and approved” to be assured of a quality stay. Besides the special brand of hospitality B&Bs are known for, you’ll enjoy fine Kentucky breakfasts, a frequent guest rewards program, and a chance to win a free overnight.
