I feel like I walked into a travel brochure: every day dawned with mist over the Kentucky bluegrass and horses whinnying in the barn. If you love horses, this is the place. Eighth Pole Inn is a working horse farm in the midst of thoroughbred country, just a stone's throw from Keeneland Race Course. It is beautifully renovated and well...

It is hard to find enough great things to say about this place. The setting and the outside of the house are traditional, but the inside of the house and the barn are brand new, so the rooms are like those in a boutique hotel. The grounds are tranquil, it's great to visit the horses, you are right next to...

Our group of four couples stayed at the Eighth Pole during a quick visit to Lexington. The newly renovated B&B was beautiful inside and out. We enjoyed visiting with the horses and lounging on the outdoor patio where the landscaping was absolutely gorgeous. Our room was very comfortable and tastefully decorated with a nicely finished bathroom. The owner greeted us...

This was a last minute, one-night addition to our family summer trip to Gatlinburg (from Indiana), and SO worth the stop. In fact, we definitely would have stayed had we not had other plans! This is a beautifully renovated bed and breakfast offering major appeal to any horse-loving soul. Our 17-year old daughter was in Heaven with the facilities and...

This place is hard to beat. Jason is very accommodating and makes you feel right at home. The horses are beautiful and you are welcome to go into the very clean stable. We enjoyed it so much that we returned to it on our trip back west.

My daughter and I had a wonder visit. The Eighth Pole Inn has been recently updated and is very modern. Beautiful house and grounds. We enjoyed sitting by the fire pit and meeting new friends. Breakfast was very good. We will surely be making a visit back hopefully soon!

We have done a great deal of traveling and visited many B & B's. Most of the time we felt like strangers in someone's home. Not here at Eighth Pole Inn. The most inviting and relaxing B & B experience ever. Our host Jason made us feel as if we were part of his family!

Having placed a review on a similar site I thought I would re-post on TripAdvisor as this place is so special. Spent 2 nights here with my wife in June as part of a road trip through Kentucky and Tennessee and there is something magical about Eighth Pole Inn. Even if horses are not your bag you cannot fail to...
