Interesting tour...I expected more demonstrations reflective of the period...we did see a rug hooker and an artist. We had lunch at the restaurant and it was delicious. I had the mushroom and lentil tart...it was amazing!

The landscape is beautiful and great for walking and photographing nature. The history is all around you. The rooms are immaculate and, again, very peaceful. The food is great. Fun to sit outside listening to live music. And there are farm animals.

There is a Day's Inn and Baymont Inn in Harrodsburg and a couple more in Danville, about 10 miles away.

Is it worth going on a Monday? It is their "quiet day" so no tours and the buildings aren't open, but you can walk around the grounds.
