If we were to admit it, sometimes life happens and we just need to carve out a little one-on-one time with our sweeties. Sometimes the one relationship we love the most needs some attention, and Oldham County, KY is the perfect place to reconnect with that special someone! At our Beds & Breakfasts, you’ll love a weekend with Cheryl at Bluegrass Country Estate B&B, or Jeff at The Inn at Spring Run Farm or Michelle at Pillow and Paddock Bed & Breakfast will be just what the doctor ordered. If you love farm-to-table dining, do yourself a favor before you come. Book dinner at Barn8 restaurant at Hermitage Farm and enjoy an unforgettable treat of meals prepared from the farm, a top-notch bourbon bar, and enjoy an after-dinner walk through ArtWalk – their light exhibit through the woods of the farm – or take their horse farm tour.
If a quiet getaway tucked back behind the trees with plenty of room to roam is important, opt for The Inn at Spring Run Farm. If you want to escape to another time, The Inn at Spring Run Farm will be perfect with its log walls, original ash floors, and luxurious bathrooms! Another unique amenity is the true Kentucky food prepared by Jeff, your innkeeper, a trained chef!
At some point you will NOT want to leave this little slice of Oldham KY heaven known as Bluegrass Country Estate B&B! You can enjoy an outdoor hot tub, theater room with movies and custom recliners, a fire pit, acreage to walk around, a gym, and a pool table. If on any night you just want to “be,” grab dinner at Ernestos on Main Street, One Nineteen West Main, Hometown Pizza, or Main Street Bourbon & Ale House before checking in to the B&B, then just stay there. Head downstairs for a movie on the big screen and have a glass of wine or a beer while you play pool.
Sleep-in the next morning, then enjoy a full gourmet breakfast at either place before heading out for the afternoon. First, to walk off that huge breakfast from your B&B, stop at La Grange Coffee Roasters for a cup of coffee or tea to go. then, start on one side of the street and make your way around both sides of the La Grange Main Street District. While you’re walking in the shops and galleries, you’ll see the train pass beside you several times. La Grange is the ONLY town in the world with a running train ON its Main Street! You’ll definitely feel the rumble before you see it!
If you are interested in history, you must stop by the Oldham County History Museum at the end of Main Street. In 2017, Oldham received 2 Underground Railroad designations from the National Park Service Network to Freedom! You can stroll the museum to learn about Oldham’s famous residents: DW Griffith, Annie Fellows Johnston, Rob Morris, and slave abolishist, Henry Bibb. Also featured is an exhibit by the Kentucky State Reformatory. You’ll want a light snack in the afternoon, so I recommend Q&A Sweet Treats Bakery… I highly recommend the molasses cookies or caramel nut bars!
A weekend in Oldham County is not complete without one of our famous Oldham Farm Tours April – October. If you are coming in off months, send us a message through chat to see if any farms are offering tours!
Tour Kentucky Artisan Distillery then go across the tracks to have couple’s range time at Open Range Sports. Follow it up with dinner at Rikishi Japanese & Bar or visit 3rd Turn Brewing Oldham Gardens with Backside Grille on the property. 3rd Turn has a huge outdoor beer garden in connecting greenhouses with deck bars. They are on the same street as Yew Dell and Kentucky Artisan Distillery.
