VERSAILLES, Ky. – The Woodford Inn is the first bed and breakfast to be named an official sponsor of the famed Kentucky Bourbon Trail® adventure, offering visitors a place to dine and relax after a day of touring nearby distilleries.
Adam Johnson, director of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® experience, said visitors often inquire about convenient lodging and accommodations, and The Woodford Inn provides an elegant answer in one picturesque and charming location.
“The Woodford Inn is a great stopover with Bourbon-themed rooms and genuine Kentucky cuisine at Addie’s Restaurant and Bar,” Johnson said. “We’re excited to welcome them as a sponsor of our world-class, unique and signature attraction.”
The historic 10-bedroom inn is nestled among the lush horse farms of Woodford County and is minutes from several distilleries, including Woodford Reserve, Wild Turkey, Town Branch and Four Roses.
Special Kentucky Bourbon Trail® getaway packages are available, complete with official t-shirts, rocks glasses, samples from each distillery and plenty of information to help guide your trip, said Meredith Downey, The Woodford Inn’s marketing manager.
“We have dozens of premium Bourbon brands available at our full-service restaurant and bar, and our rooms are equipped with Tempur-Pedic beds and Jacuzzi tubs,” Downey said. “You can’t ask for a better place to eat, sleep and drink on your Bluegrass trip.”
The history of the inn is as deep as the area surrounding it. The property dates back to 1876 and the current building was constructed by the Cleveland Orphanage Institution in 1926. It’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Cleveland House.
The family-run inn is located at 140 Park St. in downtown Versailles. For reservations or more information about groups, reunions or wedding accommodations, call toll-free (888) 806-2788 or e-mail [email protected]
