Welcome!  We invite you to be our guest at our elegantly decorated mansion on historic South Third Street, Louisville, KY in the Old Louisville neighborhood. 

Please note that a Bed and Breakfast is a private residence that allows overnight guests.  See IPL which states that a Bed and Breakfast is a Residential Structure used by a resident thereof as a small inn which provides 8 or fewer temporary rooms, etc.

This fine example of Richardsonian Romanesque architecture was built in 1893 and contains over 8,000 square feet of exotic woods and interesting woodwork.  This home is built of stone and its main exterior feature is a stunning triple archway entry.  The interior centers around a curved stairwell crowned with stained glass windows.

Early owners were Mr. W.W. Hite (1893) of the Louisville and Evansville Mail Company.  By 1899, the house passed to Bernard Bernheim of the Bernheim Distilling Company, whose many charities include the Louisville Park System and the Jefferson Memorial Statue.

The mansion can accommodate up to seven couples in its rooms and suites, with amenities including satellite television and whirlpool*, not to mention the timeless beauty of a fabulously restored historic home.  Seated in the heart of Old Louisville's Millionaire's Row, the mansion is within close proximity to Louisville's downtown, riverfront, exciting night life and International Airport.

Make the Bernheim Mansion in Louisville, Kentucky you retreat for a romantic hide-away or just get away from it all for a weekend!
