This was our first stay at 1898 Red Bud and we won't hesitate to return. The entire place was spotless. We returned in the evening to find delicious lemon bars and hot water for tea. Breakfast in the morning was amazing and we ate on the veranda. Great hosts!

This was all of our first times staying at a B&B. The home itself was just beautiful, not to mention the gorgeous outdoors. The breakfast was nothing like we have ever had before, it was fantastic!! Suzann and Dan were great hosts.

I stayed at 1898 Red Bud for 4 nights in July. It was just lovely. The nicest thing was how friendly Suzann, the proprietor was. She was so understanding the night I came in very very (very) late after getting lost driving on winding roads in central KY in the dark! The bed was like heaven. Her breakfasts were delicious...

My wife and I came to the 1898 Red Bud for our 20th anniversary. They are located just outside the Lexington, Kentucky area. We loved the bed and found it hard to wake up - sleep was so great! They really made our time together there very special!
