  • Our guide, Brian, was terrific; our experience spending time with him was five stars. When the two of us arrived at the visitor center about 11AM on a Tuesday we were greeted by a gentleman who explai...  more »

  • Speed home, where Abraham Lincoln once slept. Unique architecture with original belongings. Docent was a pinch lackluster but had lots of knowledge. A definite must see.  more »

  • I never took a tour, but we did have our wedding here in October and it was beautiful! The courtyard is a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony and the pavilion is such a lovely reception area. I really wanted an outdoor wedding where the ceremony and reception could be in the same place and Farmington was perfect for that! I only wished we could have stayed later and kept celebrating!
  • Privately funded historical home and grounds. Home tour fascinating but not appropriate for young children for safety and proximity of fragile antiques. House and grounds both not well suited for wheelchairs, walkers, or strollers.
  • Very historical place to visit. Nice staff, and there is a really nice garden festival around mother's day that is worth checking out. Have to absolutely get some Kentucky Blackberry Jam from the Lucky Clover Farm booth, really incredibly great food.
  • Beautiful historic home and property off of Bardstown Road. Tours available, host to special events and weddings throughout the year. The staff works very hard to maintain this gem for people to enjoy.
  • Great! Had a lot of fun here. Seems like a great place for a wedding

Where to stay in Louisville

Old Town has a number of atmospheric hotels close to the city’s main attractions, while hotels in the Highlands neighborhood offer proximity to the city’s most unusual bars, restaurants, and stores. Louisville’s collection of bed and breakfasts, generally farther from town, are a great way to experience some warm Kentucky hospitality. To save some money and enjoy the city’s scenic surroundings on a vacation in Louisville, consider one of Louisville’s campgrounds. The Jefferson Memorial Forest is just 24 km (15 mi) south of downtown.
