Charming 1800's cottage listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Bardstown.
Voted Most Beautiful Small Town in America.
Walking distance from downtown shopping, nightlife, dining, and local attractions.
Located along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.

I love Bardstown and wanted my cottage to look and feel like what is best about the town- historical charm mixed with modern amenities. Clean, cozy and comfortable; it is a space that I hope you find enjoyable while visiting Bardstown.
