First, let me start by saying we had a great time touring the Village, which included a horse & buggy ride + a ride on the KY River.
However, the room was pricey ($215 for a one night stay for four adults) and the air conditioner didn't work in the room. We contacted Guest Services and maintenance did the best they could by providing us with an extra box fan and opening the window.
It was odd to us that we weren't offered another room or even a discount for the uncomfortable sleeping arrangements. It was 79 degrees in the room most of the night and we were not comfortable with the idea of leaving a window open on the first floor. But, there was no way we could have slept in the room with the window closed.
Thankfully, we were only there for one night. There was no way we could have spent another restless, uncomfortable night in a sweat box!
