  • Great tour. Knowledgable guide. Beautiful house and grounds. Great piece of history. No admittance charge. Affordable tour price. Small cafe in old smokehouse with outdoor seating.
  • Great experience. Henry Clay was an important part of American history and Ashland gives the visitor an excellent picture of who he was.
  • Great Christmas event. Super busy but docents kept things moving with cheer and insight. An important figure in American history. I'll be back again when crowd is thinner and I have time to savor the experience. Some unusual architecture. Loved Clay's domed study and hear that concerts on the lawn are enjoyable.
  • Fascinating glimpse of 18th century life. Also good Pokemon.
  • This is a great area for outdoor get togethers. We were playing ultimate.

Where to stay in Lexington

Downtown Lexington offers accommodations ranging from budget to luxury, but for easier access to the area's famous horse parks and farms, consider staying just north of the city proper. Many rustic bed and breakfasts on the edge of town offer guests a chance to stay at a farmhouse or log cabin. These properties provide not only every comfort of home, but also much more privacy than a downtown hotelĀ could offer. To avoid driving to Lexington's major urban attractions, consider a hotel near the city's convention center.
