    Beautiful old Louisville home in an area full of amazing homes. Our hosts were wonderful and didn't mind getting up to have breakfast ready for us early the next morning.

    Hidden Oasis

    from

    My husband and I rarely get away without our three children. We stayed at the Rocking Horse Manor for one night and it was truly magical.The home itself is amazing, very old and rich with character and windows that seem to span from ceiling to floor, some stained, some letting the sunlight drift in to warm the rooms. We stayed in the Chelsea room which was cheerful and calming. The creak of the stairs, the finish of all the amazing woodwork, the rainbow reflections from the stained glass and the charm of clocks ticking away almost unnoticed are only a few things that made me feel as if time had stopped and John and I were experiencing a journey away from the hustle and bustle of our usual daily routine.Not only is the Rocking Horse Manor a special place, but there are many wonderful places to shop and eat at within walking distance. I relished not having to get into a car and walk down the old streets holding hands with John, a rare moment it is that we get to do such a thing. It is a shame we had an engagement the evening we stayed there. I would have been perfectly content to relax in the smoking room and play a game of chess and just enjoy life in that grand house.The innkeeper, Rich, was extremely generous and the attention to detail made our stay perfect. Rich made sure we were perfectly at home and yet gave us complete privacy. I didn't want to leave the next morning:( In fact, we can't wait to go back and visit again.Jennifer Driscoll www.***********************

    Hospitality +++++++++++

    from

    We are at the Rocking Horse Manor right now and because of the ice storm we decided not to leave today and the innkeepers are so accommodating. I didn't want to leave anyway so since we can't get out I am going to read a book. This place is so beautiful and they have the details down to an art. I can't wait to come back in the summer where we can enjoy the courtyard. The breakfast is so good and very filling.

    My husband is glad that they served country cooking. We will enjoy our extra day and we will be back in the summer.

    Must experience to believe

    from

    We have stayed in many B&B's and this one tops them all. The innkeepers are great, the food is wonderful and the manor and furnishings are beautiful. One of the things that we enjoyed was the confortable atmosphere that made us feel like we didn't want to leave.

    Absolutely AWESOME!!!!!

    from

    I am a sales manager for a major airline and travel all over the world.

    I have to take the time to tell you about a wonderful place that I just recently stayed at. The Rocking Horse Manor Bed and Breakfast was truly incredible! The hosts were most accommodating and gave that personal touch that most hotels fail to do. Each room was truly unique and amazing from the beautiful decor, furniture, and yet modern conveniences. This Victorian mansion dates back to the late 1800's and you have to see it to believe it. From the gorgeous rooms, the grounds and the delicious breakfast- it's #1 in my book. When in Louisville- don't stay anywhere else!!!!! You won't be disappointed!

    New Years

    from

    We were in Louisville for New Years and did not know what to do and my wife suggested a B&B. So we contacted the Convention Center and they gave us a list and we drove around and found the Rocking Horse and decided to stop an walk through it. The innkeepers were so nice and showed us around. I was afraid we were imposing since they didn't know we were coming but to my surprise they acted like they were waiting for us. We walked in and I knew we were going to stay. I am a person with the gift of first instinct. The place is beautiful and the hospitality is First Class. We will be back in the spring to enjoy that back yard.

    The best choice my wife ever made.

    from

    We just left the Rocking Horse on Thursday 12/18/03 and I felt like we were leaving family. We have never stayed anywhere that we felt so welcome. The Home is indescribable and the Hosts were great. The Inn is huge. You feel like your in a boutique hotel but this place has so much more to offer that any hotel I have ever stayed in. Each room has it all. Our room was so Victorian. The breakfast was so great. All I can say is that we will be back. I just want to thank my wife for this great surprise.

    Pictures don't do justice !!!

    from

    We stayed at the Rocking Horse on 12/06/03 and being first time B&Bers I'm hooked.. It is a total no brainer. I was so impressed with the house and the innkeepers. They make you feel so at home but not like your in someone's home. The home is big enough that you feel like your in a small classy hotel in Europe. They had the house decorated so well for Christmas. With all the Victorians in the Old Louisville area we were just amazed with the beauty. We give the Rocking Horse 10 diamonds and will never stay anywhere else when we are in louisville.

    Truly Beautiful

    from

    We stay in B&B's all over the world and the 1888 Historic Rocking Horse Manor is the best. From the Home to the service is First Class. I wish we could of stayed longer. We will be back and I will tell everyone that we know about you..We give you 6 stars....out of five..

    Totally Awesome

    Our last day of the ~28 mile Adventure Hiking Trail. We woke up pretty early today just to get the rest of the trail done, 6:30 AM. The shelter was really nice. We stayed at the south most shelter, just off the Ohio river. During the Fall or Spring you would be able to see the Ohio River very well. Last night we hit the sack before the sun went down. During the middle of the night, Ryan was awoken by a ...

    Day 1 started off at 8:00 AM after our morning rituals. Our plan was to hike as many miles as we could, but to stop at a shelter. It had been raining most of this month and last month so the trail was muddy and had plenty of creek crossings, even though every review I read stated the creek crossing were dried up. We stumbled across 4-8 deer this morning and spooked them of the trail. The trail was well marked, but ...

    ... There was something on at the river front and there were many people on a old boat at the dock. There were people walking across a pedestrian bridge to Indiana and it looked as though there was some sort of festival around the base of the bridge.

    Needed to drive out on a highway to find somewhere in our price bracket to stay. We had picked up a hotel voucher book which gives some ideas on where hotels are located. I had no idea where we were and by chance ...
