Fall in love upon entering the grand foyer, with its dazzling dual staircase, player piano, and brilliant chandelier. Follow the ambient light to the height of sophisticated comfort and friendly service as you lounge by the fireplace in the main family room. With its 25 foot ceilings and lodge style fireplace you are sure to find an easy nap. Dine in the Chef's kitchen with all the amenities of a professional kitchen at your fingertips. You can rest in the serene privacy of one of our four spacious rooms including the Keeneland Suite.
The Keeneland Suite is the pristine room of our bed and breakfast with vaulted ceilings, a see-through fire place that opens into a relaxing lounge and double doors that stare over the main family room. Find your way into the suite bathroom which has a hand painted dome ceiling, glass shower, and a jacuzzi tub for just the right night cap. Wake to the bright Kentucky sunshine striking of the backs of the galloping horses as you glare over our stables. If you happen to be a horse enthusiast with the likes of us, feel free to bring your steed along and let him make friends with ours.
Our Bed and Breakfast is only five minutes away from the world famous Kentucky Horse Park (home of the 2010 World Equestrian Games) and only a short drive from bustling downtown Lexington. With Keeneland practically around the corner, we are close to everything that Lexington has to offer. One could stay busy for days with all of the local attractions including distilleries, historic places, and non-stop night life. Although Lexington has a great deal to do and see, no one will blame you if you simply can't get out of bed!
An essence is that living, breathing soul beneath the crude exterior, that breath of life which makes the growl of thunder and the sway of bluegrass seem so alive. In the bluegrass especially, there is a carefree rhythm to its dance in the wind, elegant and beautiful. Leave your troubles behind, and come experience the unique atmosphere of Lexington, Kentucky. To know the soul of the Bluegrass, you must stay at the Essence, your very own bluegrass inn.
