Here’s an excerpt from one of our reviews:
“We recently enjoyed our ninth visit at Maple Hill Manor. We love the area’s Bourbon Trail and historical attractions. We love the serene setting of the llama and alpaca farm – and its farm store featuring garments and gift items made from the Alpacas raised on this farm. We love the elegant rooms. We love the gourmet breakfast feasts (and 24-hour dessert bar). We especially have come to love our gracious, hospitable hosts. We enthusiastically recommend Maple Hill Manor to anyone who yearns for a relaxing getaway to an exquisite part of the country with plenty of pampering.”
