A Storybook Inn is centrally located to a variety of area events. There is a great selection of local horse farms and the staff will be happy to assist in finding a private or guided tour. Lexington, the horse capital of the world and home to Keeneland is a quick drive. Lexington also has a great downtown area and a variety of historical locales.
Midway, only a twelve minute drive, is a quaint town with plenty of antiques and shops. Visitors can dine at the Inn recommended Heirloom, or visit the strip of boutiques. The chef at Holly Hill Inn is the recipient of the James Beard award, and features a delicious seasonal menu. Midway is a favorite stopover and a can't-miss while visiting the region.
Lexington is also a dining favorite with a number of high-end restaurants catered for the horse lovers.
