  • I have been wanting to visit Ashland since high school us history class. My teacher loved Henry Clay and we grew up learning to admire him. It was one of the prettiest places. If you go early before opening it is quiet and you have the whole park to yourself. On my next visit I want to be sure to go during open hours to tour inside. Peaceful spot for breakfast in the park.
  • Our guide Mr. McDowell was very knowledgeable and generous with his time. We thank him. The house and grounds are beautifully kept. The genealogy of the family got a bit confusing but there is nothing to be done for that! Thank you for the wonderful day.
  • A wonderful break from highway hypnosis. A short drive off of I-75 for a beautiful and educational place to stretch the legs.
  • Thanks to Hurricane Florence we had to replant a wedding in a few days and the estate is where we landed. Besides the Kentucky humidity, it was a great choice. Beautiful setting, accommodating staff, and a Great wedding for my little girl!!
  • Delightful tour. They start on the hour and last about that long. Beautiful estate in the middle of Lexington.
