Circa 1888. Gleaming woodwork, elegant rugs and period light fixtures create a restful elegant ambiance in this 1888 Richardsonian Romanesque mansion located in historic Old Louisville near Churchill Downs. The inn has a Victorian parlor, a library, an exercise facility and a third-floor sitting area with a mini-office for those who need to momentarily re-enter the 21st century. It has five guest rooms with whimsical names like Chelsea's Garden and The Irish Rose Room. The two-room suite is perfect for families or romantic getaways. Breakfast is an event each morning with such delights as strawberry yogurt parfait, apple brunch biscuit, New Orleans French Toast and homemade hash browns. Complimentary evening snacks and beverages are also available.
