October at the Inn

the main house front with the sun on it and green trees and blue sky a man working on putting new white decorative  railing on the back porch of the main house This fall has been beautiful in Louisville with colorful foliage everywhere and warm sunny days. It's a great month to travel into town to visit friends and family and see the trees along the way. While the days are still warm we have finally started a long awaited renovation on the back porch of the Main House. All the railing is being replaced with a replica of the original on the front of the house. Now it will all match! Probably doesn't make much difference to my guests but it sure makes me a happy camper!

Haunted Happenings in Louisville!

exterior of waverly sanitorium at night with lots of dark windows October brings out the ghostly happenings around town. There are great walking tours and haunted house tours. One of the best places to tour...and you can actually go year Waverly. It used to be a tuberculosis hospital, and as you can imagine many people passed away in the building. It is supposed to have paranormal activity all over the huge Gothic building. The Ghost Hunters show even filmed a Halloween night special there! These pictures were taken at a night tour. I've never had the little spots happen on my digital camera before and it was not what could it be? The owners hope to renovate it and turn it into a wonderful five star hotel someday....but in the meantime you can see it at it's spookiest!

Cool nights and S'mores on the front porch

smore maker on the front porch table with chocolate graham crackers and marshmallows and two pumkins and oranges leaves decorating the table Now that the nights have begun to cool we have set up a little station on the front porch where the guests can make their own s'more. Good news.... you don't have to build a fire! Just light the candle and toast your marshmallow. Take a choice of Hershey chocolate bar or a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Gooey and So Good! Spend the day shopping at craft fairs or the antique shops, and then dine at one of Louisville's fine local restaurants. Or visit the beautiful parks around town to see the spectacular fall colors and enjoy a picnic lunch. The Science Museum has a great Titanic exhibit and Churchill Downs fall meet will open this month. Much, much more to do in town...just ask us for suggestions.
