Stay the night in one of our spacious 63 eco-friendly guestrooms. All rooms feature handcrafted touches which include rich wood furniture from oak, pine, and cherry woods, woven bedding, mosaic art tiled mirrors, and woven baskets. Ceiling fans, luxurious towel warmers, soaking tubs, and all natural bathroom amenities add comfort. Cutting edge in-room technology featuring flat screen TV, wireless internet connection, and voice over IP phone completes your stay. This beautiful and historic hotel with graceful white columns and airy veranda nestle among the vibrant galleries, cafes, shops, and studios in Berea; the Arts and Crafts Capital of Kentucky. After hosting several hundred guests in her home, Nellie Frost, first lady of Berea College, insisted on building a guest home for future visitors. Thus, the idea of Boone Tavern began and opened its doors in 1909. Based on Berea College core values, a 11.3 million dollar renovation led to the 1st LEED Gold Certified hotel in Kentucky. Become part of the unique Berea lifestyle where quality and tradition blend with Southern hospitality and the youthful vigor of the college campus. You may choose to reserve a place in the elegant Boone Tavern dining room as a grand finale to your getaway. Each original mouth watering dish the chef creates, including meals such as Chicken Flakes in a Bird's Nest, features our legendary Boone Tavern spoonbread. Come experience fabulous southern cuisine made with local and Kentucky Proud ingredients.

Smaller, nice rooms make stay feel crowded

This is a revised, updated older hotel. Rooms are nice but small. Restaurant is very good but menu is a bit limited. Price varies search for deals. Recommended but pack light.

Beautiful Historic Hotel

The Historic Boone Tavern Hotel and Restaurant is located in Berea, Kentucky. We were there for a wedding, which took place at the Danforth chapel on Berea College campus, and the reception at the Hotel. The service was first class, it was elegantly decorated, and even had the large front porch complete with huge Boston ferns, white rocking chairs and small cafe table/chairs. We thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations, the reception, and the breakfast in the formal dining room. Great southern hospitality, at the same time elegant. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Many people visit the area for the crafts. It is considered to be the Folk Arts and Crafts Capital of Kentucky. In order to hit all the shopping, it would be best to take your car. There is the Old Town Village area, the shops around the hotel, and the Kentucky Artisan Center, off I-75, exit 77.

Great place for retired folks to enjoy

The music and food was wonderful at the Main Street Cafe next door to the hotel (on Saturday night). You must try the peanut butter pie there! There is a lot to see and there are a lot of friendly, talented folks to talk to. The visit was very enjoyable and relaxing. We highly recommend the hotel and surroundings.......

Not disappointed

The staff was friendly and always concerned about the needs of the guests. The dining room menu is eclectic and has some delicious and creative items. The service is excellent everywhere. The hotel's use of furniture, flowers and plants, paintings ...etc. shows attention to detail and creates a pleasing atmosphere.

Wonderfully Enjoyable Location

This is the ideal get-away location. Within the town, yet is very quiet, peaceful, and endearing. Just outside the front doors and within easy strolling distance are galleries, craft shops, and cafes. Historical walking tours and Cumberland Falls State Park are within easy driving distance. Much more to see and do than we were able to enjoy in two days' time. We will be returning soon.
