The house was very nice and the room that we stayed in was very cozy and had a romantic feel to it. Ira (the owner) and the other people that work there were extremely friendly and made us feel right at home. Ira knows a lot about Berea and the surrounding area and helped us decide on what we should...

This B&B is just a few miles away from the cool little college town of Berea, KY. The spacious house is wonderfully set up for guests. The view and the vibe is great. There is a library, treadmill, & front porch with rockers. The proprietor, Ira, rolls out a breakfast fit for a king. He is personable & fun to...

I wanted to celebrate a friend's fifty plus birthday "running away from home and spending a couple of nights in a luxurious environment with great breakfasts. Good idea! Unfortunately, this is not what happened. The strangeness started with reservations. Other than air conditioning and hot water I think that I was born 100 years too late. I am not especially...

Let me start by saying...this was my first experience with a Bed and Breakfast. I was completely weirded out at first. A lot of strange things...like cabinet doors being zip tied shut, blinds don't close all the way, the outside looks nothing like it does online! Even though this place gives off a sort of creepy vibe, the company we...

This inn isn't as rural as we expected, but it is within reasonable driving distance of some key parts of Daniel Boone National Forest, the attraction that brought us to Kentucky for our anniversary. We were cheerfully greeted when we arrived. I noticed a lot of containers of cigarette butts on the porch, but it was acceptable. Our room was...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The inn is very architecturally unique (designed by the owner). We toured the other guest rooms and all were quite large and very clean. Each room has their own large, private bathroom. Our room was the Moore Suite and it was spotless, beautiful, huge, and amazingly comfortable. The king size bed was the most comfortable...

This is a very nice Bed and Breakfast with a beautiful view. The rooms are tastefully appointed. The gentleman who owns and operates the B&B is very friendly and has a great deal of knowledge about the history of the area. The breakfast was fabulous!!! We wouldn't change a thing.

Dr. Ira Bates is a kind and generous host. He's a graduate of Barea College and my daughter was there for her interview. Ira shared with her the history of the school and the area. He's a very interesting man who has had lots of life experiences. I enjoyed our conversations. The breakfast was made to our specifications and was...

First off, every negative review on here is 100% the experience that we had. We were originally supposed to check in at 3:00 pm, then were called the day of and told that the room wouldn't be ready until 4:00 or after. We called back around 4 and asked if they were ready for us yet and he said it...
