We invite you to come and stay at The Samuel Culbertson Mansion historic bed and breakfast inn on your next visit to Louisville. This Georgian Revival mansion is located in the heart of the Old Louisville National Historic District, near downtown Louisville, the University of Louisville and Churchill Downs. Pamper yourself with the opulence of the Gilded Age, and enjoy a piece of traditional Kentucky in this former home of a President of Churchill Downs and the "Two Little Knights of Kentucky". The mansion was built between 1896 and 1897, at a cost of $25,000, designed by the renowned Minneapolis architect William Channing Whitney among whose many other notable buildings include the Minnesota Governor's Mansion and the Minnesota Building at the Columbia Exposition World's Fair of 1893.
Welcome to Rose Hill Inn, one of Kentucky's finest bed and breakfasts, only 15 minutes west of Lexington, Kentucky, in Versailles. Built in 1823, this historic home has been wonderfully renovated, but features of the original mansion are preserved and enhanced. The parlor, library, front porch, and 3 acres of grounds are all for your enjoyment. Rose Hill was built about 1823 and is the oldest home in the Historical District. The original structure was a federal style home, but many changes occurred in the 1880's to make it as it appears today. It is reported that both North and South occupied the grounds during the Civil War. Blood stains, which were discovered when the floors were refinished, testify to the use of the home as a hospital for the wounded. It first became a bed and breakfast in 1992 after much refurbishing. The current innkeepers, Alder and Gill Blackburn, became owners in 2007.

Tucker House Bed & Breakfast is located between the historic communities of Middletown and Jeffersontown and is just 15 miles from downtown Louisville. Innkeepers Devona and Steve Porter have faithfully restored this beautiful home, turning back the clock to the 1840s.

They were recently presented with a "Preservation Award" from the Louisville Historical League for their authentic preservation work on Tucker House.
