1840 Tucker House in Louisville, Kentucky

Tucker House is set on five acres of striking beauty – with woods, gardens and grassy fields. You may take in the beautiful surroundings from the comfort of the shaded decks or brick patio. You might choose to explore the area by putting on hiking boots and roaming the woods around the secluded lake. Your sights will include the original stone spring house, a dry-laid masonry wall and the quarry that supplied the stone for the foundation of Tucker House and its outbuildings almost 180 years ago. Or, you might just want to lie on your back, floating on a raft in the pool, while gazing at the clouds.   Nature, history and tranquility seem to co-exist in this place.  This is a perfect setting for a bed-and-breakfast inn.

Upon entering Tucker House, you will follow the cherry banister to the second floor where the four guest chambers await – each with its own private bath. While every room has been meticulously appointed with antiques of the era, three have been furnished with reproduction queen-sized beds for your sleeping comfort. The fourth bedroom has an authentic 1820’s rope bed with full-sized bedding.

The second floor also includes a common room where you may sample complimentary refreshments from the refrigerator at any time during your stay, as well as a Keurig coffee maker with gourmet coffees, teas, hot chocolate and hot cider.  Step through the French doors of that common room onto the second-floor deck -- with your morning coffee or evening glass of wine – and enjoy the view that overlooks the wooded grounds and gardens. During warm months, a large in-ground pool is available for your pleasure. Wireless internet service and in-room satellite television are available to our guests twenty-four hours a day.

1840 Tucker House is a proud member of both the Louisville Bed and Breakfast Association and the Bed and Breakfast Association of Kentucky and has been awarded the Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor.
