Romance Near our Bed and Breakfast in Bardstown

The Bourbon Manor Bed and Breakfast in Bardstown is unbeatable as a romantic getaway destination. We have a well-earned reputation for excellence in hospitality, and you’ll see why from the moment you arrive on our doorstep. Our Inn’s warm, sophisticated, and romantic atmosphere captivates the very essence of romance. You may decide to stay in more than expected during your visit!

From there, how you spend the remainder of your time is up to you, but for those who bond best on adventures and activities,   here are our top ten favorite ways to get romantic in Bardstown:

  1. When in Bourbon Country, you simply must take a tour of one of the bourbon distilleries and enjoy a tasting or two. The local Bardstown bourbon distilleries, such as Heaven Hills Distillery, offer in-depth tours with tastings and a ton of fun information about the company’s history and bourbon itself.
  2. Stroll the exhibits and interactive displays at the Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History for even more bourbon history. We guarantee you’ll learn something you didn’t already know about the industry.
  3. Enjoy an elegant and romantic dinner; hop aboard My Kentucky Dinner Train as it chugs along the scenic tracks in the Bluegrass State. For guests at our Bed and Breakfast in Bardstown, the train depot is within walking distance and one of the easiest ways to enjoy an intimate dinner for two.
  4. There’s also a great selection of romantic restaurants in Bardstown for a romantic meal. We always suggest the stellar and classic Rickhouse Restaurant & Lounge or the newest culinary option, Toogie’s Table, for modern takes on Southern dishes and craft cocktails.
  5. Walk hand in hand through the stunning trails at the Bernheim Arboretum & Research Forest. Along the way, you’ll come across art installations, curated gardens, and lovely places to steal a kiss. This area is particularly beautiful in late spring and autumn, when the leaves change from green to gold.
  6. Discover life in the Antebellum South at My Old Kentucky Home State Park. In fact, the Bourbon Manor and My Old Kentucky Home share the same architect—you can compare the similarities on a tour here.
  7. Drift back in time on a romantic carriage ride around the charming streets of Bardstown with Around the Town Carriage. The local tour guide will offer tidbits on the history and take you by the main points of interest.
  8. Browse through the charming shops and art galleries on the beautiful Main Street in Downtown Bardstown. You’ll instantly understand why this has been named the Most Beautiful Small Town in America, and you’ll meet some of the nicest folks along the way.
  9. If you’re interested in discovering our local wine industry, you’ll want to tour the vineyards and taste the delicious wines at Springhill Winery or Chuckleberry Farm & Winery.
  10. There’s nothing more romantic than a visit to the spa or private treatment in your room, and as a guest at our Bed and Breakfast in Bardstown, we have a spa dedicated to our overnight guests. Plan ahead and book a wonderful couple’s massage in your suite.
