The Manor

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and officially designated as a Kentucky Landmark Home.

Maple Hill Manor Bed and Breakfast is an award-winning Kentucky Bed and Breakfast Inn, located in Springfield, near Bardstown. This historic working farm is stately set on 15 tranquil acres in the heart of Kentucky’s Bourbon, Horses, and History Region (just minutes from Bardstown and only an hour southeast of Louisville and an hour southwest of Lexington), and the home is considered one of the best preserved Antebellum Homes in the Commonwealth. The tranquil, country setting of this Kentucky Bed and Breakfast  is surrounded by picturesque rolling hills of bluegrass with a 3,000 acre race horse farm on one side and 300 acre cattle and tobacco farm on the other – a beautiful and restful place to seek refuge and enjoy the relaxing country fresh air. It is a working Alpaca & Llama Farm and features a Roadside Farm Market filled with garments and gift items made from the Alpaca and Llama Fur.

Abundance of Kentucky Tourism Attractions to enjoy year-round:  Kentucky Bourbon Trail, Lincoln Heritage Sites, Civil War Museums, Perryville Battlefield, John Hunt Morgan Trail, Historic Bardstown, My Old Kentucky Home State Park and Golf Course, and the Kentucky Wine Trail.

Attention to Detail

Awaken to the delightful sounds of classical music and the wafting aromas of freshly brewed coffee and hot-from-the-oven muffins, as the day begins with a specially prepared candle-light breakfast served on fine crystal, china, and linens in the formal dining room. In the evening, relax in the Music Parlor or tree-draped patio and enjoy a complimentary homemade desserts and beverages.
