Circa 1882. Prints of French impressionists, Toile wall coverings, 13-foot ceilings and original light fixtures, fireplaces and walnut woodwork create a romantic atmosphere at this 1882 Victorian Italianate bed and breakfast. Ask for Katharine's Room and relax in the comfort of an inviting antique four-poster bed. Business travelers appreciate the amenities of Penina's Room which can be combined into a suite with the adjoining Kimberly's Room, making it perfect for families. Belgian waffles with fresh strawberries or Eggs Benedict are favorite breakfast entrees served in the delightful dining room with Queen Anne and Duncan Fyfe furnishings. Aleksander House is a three-story brick inn listed in the National Register and is situated in historic Old Louisville, Kentucky. Get-away specials, spa and sweetheart packages are available.
