Sweet Old Fashioned

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.

As the name implies, the spacious Sweet Old Fashioned guestroom is both elegant and charming and is a luxuriously relaxing ending to a busy day touring the Bourbon Trail and historic Bardstown. 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.

Fall asleep in complete comfort in the king-sized canopy bed with plush 2″ mattress topper and 600-thread-count linens as a flame flickers in the year-round electric fireplace.

Awaken to beautiful morning views of our graceful lawn with its ancient magnolia trees and beautiful flower gardens. An award-winning full country breakfast in our Dining Room between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. will prepare you for your exploration of our many area attractions.

Room Amenities

The Sweet Old Fashioned Room at Bourbon Manor is easily one of the most classic elegant, cozy, and romantic places to stay on the Bourbon Trail in Kentucky. Todd was the perfect host— offering tons of great recommendations and even making our dinner reservation in Bardstown. To top off the romantic getaway, the owners prepared the most delicious breakfast. Would recommend this Kentucky B&B over and over!

Mint Julep

Lodging for a perfect romantic weekend getaway in Bardstown, KY can be found in Bourbon Manor’ssumptuous Mint Julep Room.

Any horse-racing enthusiast knows that the Mint Julep is the drink of tradition at the Kentucky Derby. It is made by muddling mint leaves in a bit of water, and then adding bourbon, sugar, and crushed or shaved ice. The drink traditionally creates a frost on the outside of the glass. The romance of its Kentucky history made this drink an obvious choice for one of our inviting rooms.

This very quiet, private, and romantic Mint Julep guestroom features a beautiful antique armoire, a Jacuzzi tub for two with separate walk-in shower, and an electric fireplace for year-round enjoyment. The windows open to views of the west lawn, Bourbon Barn, and a secret garden with its unique sculpture of a hand.

Enjoy a content and comfortable sleep in the elegantly carved, four-poster king-size bed with premium hypo-allergenic featherbed and luxurious linens. Comfortable chairs invite you to enjoy a relaxing morning before joining us in the dining room for a delicious country breakfast.

Of course, a weekend may not be enough time to explore the area and its attractions. With the Bourbon Trail, the Wine Trail, amazing outdoor destinations, and the area’s history and horse-related legacy, you may need to plan a longer stay in this luxurious room to create wonderful, lasting memories of your time here in Kentucky.

Room Amenities

This Bardstown Bed and Breakfast is a gem- perfect for a romantic getaway. The facilities and grounds were gorgeous, the staff was incredibly attentive and kind, and the bed was so comfortable! We stayed in the Mint Julep room in the main house and it was a perfect couples retreat. Stephanie took such good care of us at check-in and at The Bunghole bar out back. We hope to stay at this B&B again next time we’re in Kentucky.

The drink is made by crushing a sugar cube in a small amount of bitters before adding bourbon and a small amount of anise flavored alcohol (like absinthe), and served over ice. It is a sweet and indulgent drink.

Similarly, the Classic Sazerac guestroom is a sweet and indulgent room! The bed features a hybrid memory foam and gel mattress, luxurious linens, antique dresser, sitting area with comfortable reclining chairs, and an electric fireplace for year-round enjoyment.

The staff is so kind and accommodating, and makes outstanding breakfasts! There are no other places to stay in Bardstown, maybe even all of Kentucky that even come close. We wouldn’t think of staying anywhere else on our next couples getaway and can’t wait to return to the Hotty Toddy room next year.

Southern Love

The fireplace flickers in front of comfortable chairs here in the Southern Love Room at Bardstown KY’s Bourbon Manor: a perfect setting for you and a loved one to relax and reconnect!

While Southern Love is a very specific drink featuring a Louisiana liqueur, we have taken the idea and given it a Kentucky twist by applying the name only to this very romantic guestroom.

This restful retreat at our inn features a beautiful black onix and gold inlaid with Ginko leaves, queen-size bed with luxurious high thread-count linens, premium hypo-allergenic feather topper, flat-screen TV with expanded Cable Movie Channels, and gas-log fireplace.

Room Amenities

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our romantic getaway to this Bardstown Bed and Breakfast! The room was clean and very comfortable. The property around the manor is gorgeous and it creates a very relaxing environment for couples. The staff at the Bourbon Manor B&B is so helpful! After breakfast was complete, Todd asked if we needed any suggestions for things to do during the day. He was so knowledgeable and helpful in giving us ideas of places we might like to visit and recommendations of places to have dinner in Bardstown and beyond. Breakfast was one of our favorite parts of staying there! Both my husband and I have food allergies. They did an incredible job of not only accommodating our allergies but also making exceptional food that we enjoyed eating! Neither of us felt that we were missing out on what the others were eating. When looking for places to stay in Bardstown, Kentucky, I would highly recommend staying at the Bourbon Manor B&B.

Perfect for a honeymoon travel destination, our largest and most private guestroom suite features its very own exterior entrance, beautiful antiques, a king-size canopy bed, fireplace, Smart TV, and jetted tub.

The Manhattan is a traditional drink made of bourbon, sweet vermouth, bitters, a cherry, and a twist of orange. As the name implies, it was created in Manhattan; however, Kentucky has made our own variation of this drink a tradition.

Similarly, the Manhattan Honeymoon Hideaway is a traditional romantic setting for anyone celebrating a special occasion, offering both romance and relaxation on the inn’s second floor. The bed is topped with a hypo-allergenic featherbed and luxurious linens. The electric fireplace and designer lighting with dimmers sets a tranquil scene for a peaceful evening.

Room Amenities

Another great romantic getaway to the Bourbon Manor Bed & Breakfast in Bardstown, KY. We've made it a tradition each year for our anniversary. We stayed in the B&B’s romantic Manhattan Honeymoon Hideaway this time which is a couple's delight. The room has a private entrance, a personal parking spot by the door, and lots of space that includes a fireplace. The king-size bed was nice and firm and it even had an eating area with a mini fridge, table/chairs, coffee maker and microwave. For couples who might have trouble with stairs, I would not recommend this room because it does have a very steep and narrow staircase going up, but that wasn't an issue for us. This has been our favorite room at the B&B so far. The TV was a good size (at least 50", smart tv with cable and access to Netflix, etc.). Breakfast was awesome each morning, as the food was delicious and the service was excellent. Speaking of food, be absolutely sure to make it a point to eat dinner at the Rickhouse in Bardstown (I suggest steak, 11 cheese mac & cheese, and asparagus). Overall, this was another perfect getaway for us and we are already making plans to come back to Bardstown next year for another stay at this wonderful Kentucky B&B.

They have great recommendations on what to do in Bardstown. We've stayed in two different rooms at this B&B and both were great and clean. My favorite was the second room which is perfect for couples. We got to stay in the Master Distiller's Den room. It was gorgeous. The king-size bed is very comfortable and you get a lot of space to just lounge. There's a fridge and a microwave and you have your own entrance directly to your room. Definitely recommended to stay if you're doing a romantic getaway to the Bourbon Trail!
