The Campbell House Lexington Kentucky
I like to look for historic hotels when we travel, as opposed to just another high rise. The Campbell House was updated, charming and convenient to the activities on our Lexington agenda.
Whether you just rode into town, or have been here your entire life, Lexington is sure to feel like home. Nestled in the heart of Bluegrass Country, our historic city is as famous for its horses as it is for its Southern grace and charm. We sure hope you get a chance to experience them all. Recently renovated, The Campbell House is conveniently located near downtown, and only 4 miles from Blue Grass Airport and the legendary Keeneland Racecourse, putting the best of Lexington quite literally at your doorstep. Guests are encouraged to visit the nearby Kentucky Horse Park, University of Kentucky, or one of the many local bourbon distilleries for a taste of the best Lexington has to offer.
Mornings started in the Rackhouse Tavern for coffee and breakfast. I loved sipping on coffee by the fire (it was chilly during our visit) and then having the family join once they woke up.
Mornings were quiet but evenings were much more lively. As a proud member of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, The Rackhouse features an amazing selection of over 300 bourbons and local brews on tap.
We did two connecting rooms and they were huge! When we saw them we said we should have done just one – until peeking into the teeny tiny bathroom. That alone made me relieved we had done two. The rooms were updated and comfortable. They didn’t have balconies or patios, but we were basically here to sleep so it worked just fine.
Everyone at Campbell House was so kind and gracious – in fact, that was something we said throughout our trip to Kentucky!
