The Ashley Inn has six rooms in total which include five unique guest rooms with private bathrooms and one other which welcomes pets. All the guest rooms are decorated in unique ways and feature washrooms with over the bath showerheads (except when stated) and plenty of space. The delicious breakfast is provided for guests in the main dining area of the inn.
The Savannah room caters to couples celebrating weddings, honeymoons or anniversaries. The king-sized bed sits in a room with two especially large closets and plenty of space to take a private breakfast in. The windows provide a northeasterly view, showing trees and acres of rolling countryside. The pale pink and green color scheme accentuates the rustic, heavy wood furniture and the décor is cute without being kitsch.
The Tara Room, in contrast, aims to be family-friendly as it has space to sleep four people. Thanks to its queen-sized bed, twin bed and trundle bed (which slides underneath the twin bed to create more room during the daytime), there are ample spaces to sleep. The Tara bathroom is located across the hall and there is a back staircase that leads to the room’s door. Views show the surrounding grounds and the western facing windows are designed to showcase the beautiful Kentucky sunsets. The Tara Room is decorated in delicate eggshell blues, with a medium wood floor and charmingly mismatched but complementing furniture.
The Dreamer Room reigns over the whole inn, holding court at the top of the grand entry’s curved staircase. The king-sized room is designed to be charming and handsome, with a dark four-poster bed, large fireplace and decorated in shades of peach and oak. Additional seating space is available outside at the top of the staircase, while the room itself contains an additional twin bed to sleep three people. For a fee, another stowaway bed can be added for family or friends’ vacations, sleeping up to four people.
This versatility is continued in the Secret Garden Room, which can sleep two people in either two twin-sized beds or one king-sized bed. The en suite bathroom and bedroom both come with large windows offering views over the reflecting pond and luscious acres of the Meadow Lake Equestrian Center. They also showcase the ‘secret’ English Garden of its name, highlighting the courtyard and fountain. The bedroom is located in the back corner of the house and is only accessible via the back staircase, to ensure privacy and seclusion. Bright yellows and light wood furniture foster a sense of both optimism and serenity for guests staying in this room.
In its own building, The Veranda Room is located away from the main house, with walls six inches thick to maximize privacy and quiet. Decorated in verdant apple and autumnal tangerine with crisp white wicker accents, Southern elegance oozes from this room. The private en suite bathroom has two sinks and the extra-large guest room boasts a king-sized bed as well as a separate seating and living room area complete with television. It serves as an ideal peaceful getaway from busy city life, with views of the English courtyard and fountain.
Finally, The Aviary is the hotel’s pet-friendly suite which allows dogs. It comes with a double bed, dresser, seating area and en suite bathroom with a shower, but no bathtub. As a ground-level room, The Aviary is very accessible and has a door opening onto the Meadow Hills Equestrian Center and a private patio, which faces west for fantastic views of the sunset. Furnished with a cast-iron bed, the décor contrasts pale blue-grey walls with dark furniture and drapes.
