Lodging for a perfect romantic weekend getaway in Bardstown, KY can be found in Bourbon Manor’s sumptuous 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. 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.
