Our Accommodations

 
 

Like the famous racehorse, Barbareau, Ragtime takes her name from a beloved foxhound. Sitting on a ridge in the heart of hunt country, Ragtime provides beautiful views from every room. Our front entrance opens to a myriad of surprises, from cathedral ceilings in the large sunroom to vaulted ceilings in the bedrooms, each of which comes equipped with sliding doors opening onto an old-style Kentucky porch, equipped with rocking chairs and spectacular sunset views.

Master Suite

Master Suite Bath

As you slip into this suite, your feeling of being transported begins. Floor to ceiling windows engulf you in the natural beauty of the Kentucky countryside. The soft movement of the shade tree just outside the window whispers an invitation to step through the sliding glass doors onto the wide veranda lined with rocking chairs, perfect for that first cup of coffee on the cool, quiet mornings.

A fireplace of natural stone harvested from the grounds warms you in the cooler months. The light-filled luxurious, roomy bath with huge shower has spectacular views of the orchard and gardens. The views, the hand-painted sinks, chandeliers, pottery, and eclectic art make this suite a visual treat while enveloping you in comfort.

$95/weekdays; $110/night on weekends*

Huntsman’s Room

Huntsman's Room
Shared Bath

Tradition and elegance, a celebration of horse and hound evoked through lovely prints of carriages, fox hunting, or the horse in hand.

Relax to gorgeous views of spectacular sunsets behind the old tobacco barn and gardens, the high pond at the entrance, and our south ridge.

A double bed faces the glass sliding door, a private entrance to your morning appointment with coffee in a rocking chair on the veranda.

A large shared bath across the hall pampers with its large shower, soaking tub and more views of the gardens and orchard.

The Poet

The Poet's Room

Inspired by a young writer in residence for several years, the color of the room and artwork suggests intuition in harmony with nature. The sliding glass doors to the veranda flood the room with natural sunlight – or great theater should a storm roll through. Relax to gorgeous views of spectacular sunsets behind the old tobacco barn and gardens, the high pond at the entrance, and our south ridge.

Antique twin bedsteads and dressers make this cozy and spacious bedroom your own hideaway. Step through the sliding glass doors to the veranda, sink into a rocking chair, and drink in the fresh air.

A large shared bath across the hall pampers with its large shower, soaking tub and more views of the gardens and orchard.

The Lodge

Your rustic old Kentucky home away from home — loaded with the creature comforts that will keep you coming back.

Imagine: a simple country kitchen, a massive dining room table built from timber from Michigan’s Cornell Bridge, a living room that toasts horses and hunting, and fireplace to warm cool nights or, maybe, dry wet boots! A warming stove readies a pot of chili or tea.

Relax with friends and loved ones after your great outdoor adventures at the bar or to watch the big screen TV in cushioned chairs. Floors are riding boot friendly.

Dorm style sleeps seven on rollaway beds – great for groups or families.

$250/night for 4 guests

Dining and Relaxation Areas

Past the kitchen with antique fittings, a vast living room with fireplace, a stunning dining room with floor to ceiling windows and cozy wainscoted den, you’ll find the jewel of the house at the north end: an Olympian sun room with a 360-degree view of the valleys. The floor to ceiling prairie-style windows allow a full embrace of natural light, while the décor mixes antiques, stained glass and art from around the globe. Guests may wish to gather in the sunroom to sip coffee while watching the sunrise over the misty valleys below.

Living Room Sun Room Boot Room

A patio with fire pit and grill off the formal dining room allows guests to relax late in the evening overseeing a spectacular view of hillside and meadow. With 160 acres of fields, woods, and multiple creeks and ponds, there is also plenty to be seen on lovely nature walks around the property. Walking trails are mowed for your hiking or rambling pleasure.
