    We generally try to make it out to Farmington for the annual Derby breakfast. The grounds and garden are lovely and the house really holds a lot of interesting history to learn about.  more »

    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.

    We went in Spring of 2016. What a very informative tour! Great history of Abe Lincoln's stay with the family there.

    Great place to go for a leisurely stroll. It's dog friendly, which is great. My pups always enjoy themselves there. The staff in the gift shop are great as well.

    Beautiful grounds and facilities. The size of the grounds are very surprising. NOt really big enough for a lot of hiking but if you want to get out and explore some beautiful grounds this is a great spot. It is used extensively by many photographers and for personal use I do not believe you have to pay but if you are a professional you have to pay to use the grounds.

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.
