Welcome to Our Lexington KY Bed & Breakfast and Retreat Center

Just minutes from Lexington, Richmond, and Winchester, The Blue Heron Bed & Breakfast and Retreat Center is a secluded retreat in the Madison County countryside. TBH is a working goat farm and a BBAK Farm Stay, nestled on thirty acres surrounded by woodlands, meadows and the Otter Creek. Come enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings of wildflowers, grazing goats, star-filled nights, and an abundance of birds, including the Great Blue Herons that live on the creek in front of the house. There are trails on the farm for hiking, as well as an easy walk around the paddock for exercise.

The house is Victorian in style yet homey and comfortable. We are a Green Inn, dedicated to caring for the earth and its resources. TBH is a quiet sanctuary from your day to day life, with many inviting spaces for relaxation, talking with friends, reading in the well-stocked Library or sitting on the front porch and deck. Benches and chairs are placed around the farm for resting and reflecting.   A roaring fireplace greets you in the living room on winter days.

Wonderful home-cooked meals include many southern comfort foods as well as new twists on old favorites. We use many Kentucky Proud products and produce and raise some vegetables and herbs in our garden.

TBH is centrally located and is just minutes from The Kentucky Horse Park, The Artisan Center/ Berea Boonsboro State Park, White Hall Historic Shrine, Red River Gorge, Natural Bridge State Park, UK, EKU and Berea College. Also close by are Civil War sites, Horse Farm Tours, the Bourbon Trail, Deer Run Stables, and the Kentucky River.

TBH welcomes business and church groups for day retreats. We also offer day retreats on various spiritual health and wellness topics, as well as Spiritual Director Services, by appointment.
