American Whiskey Magazine

American Whiskey Magazine’s article, Bed and Bourbon, features the Louisville Bourbon Inn as the first Louisville bed and breakfast they recommend. In addition to the elegant suites, gourmet breakfast and bourbon flights in the Bourbon Room Library, the author loves the central location and convenience of where the Louisville Bourbon Inn is located:  “perched on a corner next to Louisville’s leafy Central Park where free Shakespeare plays are performed outdoors in the summer. Within walking distance are several notable local restaurants.” Cheers to American Bourbon and the Louisville Bourbon Inn!

26 Best Things to do in Louisville

In an article on the Planet D, the author is most likely a fan of architecture and history, since she ranks an Old Louisville Walking Tour as the #1 best thing to do in the city (immediately followed by horse racing and bourbon tours, of course).  We like where her head is at, and we’re glad that the Louisville Bourbon Inn is the only Louisville bed and breakfast that’s recommended for accommodations.  Our guests frequently mention the Old Louisville neighborhood as a highlight of the Inn.  Old Louisville is the third largest historical district in the United States, and the largest district that features almost exclusively Victorian architecture. Guests also delight in exploring the detailed and exquisite architecture of the Louisville Bourbon Inn on the inside, which has been perfectly restored and preserved. Did you know that Old Louisville also has the most stained glass of any neighborhood in the United States!  With so much to do and see in Louisville, the are even more than 26 reasons to visit us in our home state. Of course there’s only one place you should stay, and that’s at the Louisville Bourbon Inn.
