There’s a host of happy faces waiting to greet you in the town of Danville, in central Kentucky’s bluegrass region. They’re not the typical faces you see at a hotel – most of them have bigger ears; some even have beaks or snouts. Regardless, the faces are all soft and fuzzy, because they belong to a friendly crew of farm animals that ranges from rabbits to sheep to puppies and piglets. These animals are here to provide milk and eggs for the property, because in addition to being a lovely lodging, this Southern estate is a working farm.
Here to help you navigate the property are other friendly (human) faces, who can get you all set on your new pastoral pastimes. If you’ve never milked a goat, now’s your chance – if you have, you might want to try collecting chicken eggs or grooming a mini horse. Meanwhile, you can enjoy two of the other property highlights all on your own. To see a glorious sunset, just step outside around dusk. And to see the other stars of the farm that aren’t the animals, stay outside afterward, and look up to the hundreds of visible constellations.
Rooms and suites
The Farm’s nine rooms are decorated individually, each with a sense of classic Southern graciousness, through details like vintage lamps and floral textiles. Farm Specialty suites are more spacious than the Farm Standard rooms and feature lovely additions, like a reading area or gorgeous farmland view.
The property’s abundant farmland allows for relaxing strolls and gives you many places to clear your head. Fishing, gardening and stargazing are all possible, as are happy play dates with your new, furry friends. Should you decide to explore the area, visits to local restaurants, shopping and historic sites throughout the Bluegrass region, as well as Bourbon tours, are also easy to set up, and the Great American Dollhouse Museum isn’t too far. If you crave something a bit faster-paced, the cities of Lexington and Louisville are 40 and 80 minutes away, respectively.
How to Get There
Great location close enough to town yet in the country on farm land, so peaceful. Very good communication, very accommodating. Reiterate everything others have said about breakfast, farm animals, bourbon trail tour, well stocked kitchen and bath, and decorated in a light hearted style.
Highly recommend for couples, families, friends getaway.
Our family was overwhelmed by the accommodations and the friendliness of the staff during our 2 day stay at the farm. All of us wished we could have stayed longer. The surrounding countryside and town of Danville added to our pleasure. Dianne, Evan, and Homer Williams
We spent 2 nights at the Farm and had a wonderful time. We only ate breakfast there and it was delicious and pleasantly served. We stayed at the Pool Villa which was spacious and well equipped with all the comforts of home. The land around the facility is truly beautiful, The Farm arranged for a Bourbon Trail Tour which was wonderful, make sure you get Will as your driver. We went to Makers Mark and Limestone Branch Distilleries and Horseshoe Bend Winery and I recommend all 3. During the warm months make sure you get out after dark and see the fireflies dancing in the meadows behind the Pool Villa, a sight that is beyond description and one that is not found in many places
We stayed in the Peacock cottage. Very nice, big back porch on cottage with chairs to sit out and watch the sun set. Everything was clean and very nice. The bed very comfy. WE were there for 3 nights. We took the Bourbon/wine tour, our guide Will was very nice and we were so glad to have someone else doing the driving. We asked Will about places to eat while exploring downtown Danville, thanks Will we loved Captian Franks Hotdog Emporium, yum!
We also went to the Trustee's table at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill. Dinner was good, they try to use as much of the fresh vegetables grown in gardens on the village grounds as possible season permitting.
We were very pleasantly surprised at all there was to see in downtown Danville starting with Constitution Square, Ephraim McDowell museum and all the shops and art museums.
We was hoping to try out the breakfast one morning at the Farms but unfortunately the main house was closed while we were visiting. So if you plan on this make sure to ask ahead of time if main house will be open and if breakfast will be offered.
We did not take the barn tour as unfortunately while we were there it rained all 3 days and was very muddy, windy, cold; so we passed on that. We did enjoy all the animals around the farm. They don't let the guard dogs out until late be we did get to meet one of them on the last night. She was so cute, she had been shaved for the summer but still had the puffy head of hair. I have read how intelligent these dogs are about sensing friend from foe. We we came back in from being out for dinner, she waited on us to get out of our truck. Slowly walked up and sniffed all around the truck (I'm thinking she had already got familiar with it from the previous nights), then came over to visit us, as if she was saying you're okay.
Rooms were well sized and spaced and very comfortable. Food was great with great atmosphere. Lot of ducks. geese, birds like ducks, peacocks, chickens and list goes on. I liked the big dogs that guard all the farm animals at night to make sure the predators don't come around. Forgot to mention cats, many many cats. With all the farm animals they are all well behaved and fun to be around.
