Two of Kentucky’s most famous inns are giving couples a reason to venture out into the cold this winter. Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, the country’s largest private collection of original 19th century buildings and Kentucky’s largest National Historic Landmark, and Beaumont Inn, Kentucky’s oldest family-operated Country Inn and recipient of a James Beard America’s Classic Award, are offering Valentine’s Day and Midwinter Escape packages.

 

 

Valentine’s Day packages

 

 

Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill is offering a Bee My Valentine package.

This package starts at $185 for two adults. Reserve at 800-734-5611 or online using the promo code, “LOVE.”

 

 

Named as a top hidden travel destination by BBC News, The Inn is much more than a traditional hotel: Guestrooms, suites and private cottages are located in 13 restored Shaker buildings. Rooms are comfortably appointed with Shaker reproduction furniture, original hardwood floors and spectacular countryside views.

 

 

Beaumont Inn is hosting a Valentine’s Day Weekend, Friday, Feb. 10 through Sunday, Feb. 12.

During your stay, dine at the inn’s three restaurants – the Main Dining Room, Old Owl Tavern and Owl’s Nest – known for Kentucky fare like old-fashion yellow-legged fried chicken, corn pudding and General Robert E. Lee orange-lemon cake. Visit the onsite Kentucky Spa at Bell House cottage for massages, facials and hand and foot treatments. Book a personalized bourbon tasting with the innkeeper and browse the gift shop, which features Kentucky Crafted items created by juried craftspeople.

 

 

Both inns are located in Harrodsburg, about 30 miles east of Lexington and set amidst four National Register Historic Districts in the heart of Kentucky’s famed Bluegrass region. It is Kentucky’s oldest town and is surrounded by the bourbon and craft distilleries of the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® and the Brewgrass Trail.
