Cynthias bed and breakfast was wonderfully decorated and had very spacious rooms. The guests were an absolute treat we made friends with a couple who were visiting their son and it was simply wonderful. We did have an issue when we arrived though, we had to wait outside in the snow for quite sometime until one of the guests returned so we can be let into the facility. There were just a bit of misunderstandings that set the tone of to a shaky start. We were a large group so to one of the guests we were a bit of a disturbance we had to be SUPER SUPER quiet after 10 cause we had an older man constantly knocking and complaining. We ARE from NY so im sure our level of noise is not something people from this area are used to. We also were accused of stealing someones pants which was absurd because we all over packed for our stay thee and quite frankly i doubt anyone of our party had the same taste as whoevers pants were stolen. Aside from that the house itself was magnificent it had alot of historical facts that made it an honor to stay there. I wouldnt recommend this place to larger crowds or people who are not usually in bed by 10 aside from that couples and singular travelers should feel right at home here.
The house and room is gorgeous, breakfast excellent and Cynthia just has the biggest heart. We had such a great time staying here during the Jane Austen festival! The only thing I could do to thank her enough for the stay is host her in return!
This historic home is a great place to stay! Only ~15 min from downtown Louisville its spacious clean rooms and quirky bathrooms are exceptional. Three of us stayed in the Austen Library Suite. We loved the breakfast and the people.
Didn't really stay there. Cynthia had a death in the family and arranged for us us to stay at another place.
The Bashford Manor was a treat!! The Inn is lovely and beautifully appointed as well as a Historical treatsure. Cynthia was an engaging and lovely host serving us a gorgeous breakfast in her beautiful dining room.
Another surprise was the camaraderie to be found with the other guests in who joined us at breakfast. We had a lovely conversation with the other travels and it really brightened the day.
I will definitely stay with Cynthia the next time I head to Louisville!!!
I was in Louisville with 2 family members for the Kentucky Derby Marathon. Cynthia's B&B is absolutely fabulous!! We were in a wonderful suite with a kitchenette and full bath. The atmosphere of the home is wonderfully historic and authentic, breakfast was delicious and Cynthia was the epitome of hospitality and grace. I can not recommend her B&B highly enough! I only wish we had longer than a weekend to stay!
We loved staying at Cynthia's house. We loved the house and its unique atmosphere. Apart from that, we enjoyed a delicious and tasty breakfast that Cynthia cooked for us. I will recommend this place to every one of my friends visiting Louisville.
Our group of five (for a surprise birthday weekend on the Bourbon Trail) had a great stay with Cynthia in her historic B&B! Be prepared to drive a short distance for food and entertainment options in Louisville from this location, however, being away from downtown means peace & quiet at night. The next time we're in Louisville, we will be staying here (like Abraham Lincoln did!).
Cynthia has a very exquisite bed and breakfast full of history. The rooms were very clean and accomodating, tastefully decorated and most importantly warm! She made me feel very very comfortable during my stay there and I look forward to staying with her again!
I have stayed at Bashford Manor. It is a most wonderful bed & breakfast. Cynthia has a profound attention to detail, from caring for her guests, to providing an environmentally friendly abode, and to being a historian of the house and local areas. I highly recommend Cynthia & Bashford Manor if you come to Louisville, KY.
