About this listing
Our bed and breakfast is located in historic downtown Maysville, KY. Maysville is such a treasure of museums, architecture, and culture- including a 1st class theater! Come stay with Mike and Marti Insko and take-in the town. We have 3 rooms each with a private bath, decorative fireplaces, cable tv's with DVD players, refridgerators, and wireless internet. (Limit is two people per room.) Our Suite Retreat located on the lower level has its own entrance plus washer / dryer and kitchenette. Breakfast is always delectable as Marti teaches culinary classes in addition to owning and managing the bed and breakfast. Mike is a retired musician / teacher and knows Maysville like the back of his hand.
As guests you can be as reclusive or interactive as you wish The living, dining and kitchen areas are all available to you as shared spaces.
Interaction with Guests
We are here to assist you with directions, local information, like the best hole in the wall, Country Ham source, and of course all the local culture.
Cox Row is just cool, not to mention Historic recorded homes, churches, and the Cox Building just to mention a few. Our Gateway Museum with world famous (really!) miniature Collection is worth the trip to Maysville. Oh, did I mention our local theatre ((website hidden) -Maysville Players) or our Chandlers Restaurant? People regularly drive from Cincy to eat at Chans.
We'll pick you up if you arrive by train or boat.!
Other Things to Note
Maysville has a way of making memories!
Please only two people per room with the exception of small children. No smoking inside the house. Small well behaved pets and children are welcome. While you stay, our home is your home, treat it as such.
Marti and Mike were wonderful hosts. The room was comfortable and clean. Everything was as described. Maysville is picturesque and well worth a visit for anyone who enjoys small towns, history, or just wants a quiet get away.
Marti was a warm, wonderful, accommodating host. We are currently driving across the south on the way to Colorado, and we are interested in meeting many people and sharing stories. Marti spent several hours talking to us about her bed and breakfast, about Maysville, and about Southern history. She gave us several maps and pamphlets and spent a lot of time telling us about neat things to see nearby. Before we even to Maysville, she sent us some recommendations. We were driving from West Virginia where, because of recent storms and power outages, gas stations for miles and miles were out of gas. This delayed us quite a bit and we got in way past check in time, but Marti was really nice about it and even waited up for us. The rooms were gorgeous. Marti knows a lot about interior design and you can stay in the Civil War room or the Maysville room! Maysville is also gorgeous and we had a lot of fun walking around. Marti also made us a delicious breakfast and gave us book recommendations. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to those who love chatting, learning, and pretty things.
About the Host, Martha
Martha (Marti for short) and Mike love welcoming guests from all over the world. They have owned / operated Moon River Bed and Breakfast since 2002. Maysville, Ky is a real gem! History, beauty and nice friendly people abound. Great locally owned restaurants featuring "to die for" ribs and locally produced wines, the river and history you "can feel" are just a few things that will captivate you and create wonderful memories.
