From $229.00 / night

Looking for a romantic getaway near Louisville, Kentucky? Travel just a little further to Bourbon Manor, our bed and breakfast in Bardstown, KY, and enjoy some time away in our Sweet Old Fashioned Room.

The Sweet Old Fashioned is a Bourbon Whiskey cocktail that was created in the late 1800s at the Pendennis Club in Louisville in honor of James E. Pepper, a well-known bourbon distiller in the area whose name is now on 1776 Bourbon. This classic, sweet drink is made by dissolving sugar in bitters, and then adding Bourbon and a twist of lemon – best served with ice. Because of its name and age, the Sweet Old Fashioned is known as a classic and somewhat romantic drink.

The 20’x20′ room features antique furnishings, and a king-size canopy bed with a plush 2″ mattress topper. Choose one of the room’s books to peruse as you relax in the comfortable couch and chairs.
