Our night was amazing. Keith and Jackie are amazing hosts. They are friendly, talkative, and open. If you are looking for a place that feels like you are visiting old friends this is it. They took us out to meet the horses. We sipped on bourbon and talked throughout the evening and later that night the women got into the hot tub and hung out and laughed.

We couldn't be more thrilled with our stay at the Essence. It was much grander than the pictures depicted. The Vineyard room was perfect for us, private and had everything we needed. We were in town for a horse event at the Kentucky Horse Park and the location of the house couldn't have been more convenient. The hosts, Keith, Jackie and Angela were very nice, helpful and made you feel right at home instantly. AND they are very good cooks! We will stay here again! The Smith's

We spent one night here on road trip. Room was very clean, comfortable and lovely. Host was warm, friendly and professional. Location in the middle of miles and miles of horse breeding farms. Very peaceful. Beautiful area - Lexington fairly close.

We stayed four nights and couldn't have been more pleased. Relaxing environment, gracious hospitality and absolutely beautiful home. We didn't stay in the "master", but because it wasn't occupied when we were there, we were able to check it out. If you want to experience the ultimate in luxury, book that one! :)

My girlfriend and I spent a long weekend in their fancy suite and the sheer size was impressive. I've never stayed in a room with that much square footage before. The closet could have been a room all by itself. Staff was great and friendly. If I had to nit pick the carpet in our suite is near the end of life but I can't keep white carpet perfect either so it's understandable. I can't say enough about how beautiful the surrounding area is. I would absolutely go back. Waking up to see horses in the fields was a special treat.

Room Tip: Just spend the extra $$$ and get the suite. It's worth it.
