Inn History

Relish the history and the lifestyle of antebellum country living within a metropolitan area. In 1839, Hazael and Nancy Jane Tucker purchased their homestead and, approximately one year later, commissioned John Stone to build this brick, Federal-style home, which has now been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Tucker House Bed & Breakfast is located between the historic communities of Middletown and Jeffersontown and is just 14 miles from the heart of downtown Louisville.

1840 Tucker House History
Innkeepers Devona and Steve Porter have faithfully restored this beautiful home, turning back the clock to the 1840s. Using their collection of early 19th century antiques, they have recreated the flavor of early country living in Kentucky. They were presented with a "Preservation Award" from the Louisville Historical League for their authentic preservation work on Tucker House.

This Kentucky landmark has solid brick walls, authentic poplar floors and trim, seven fireplaces and gorgeous, original seeded-glass windows. In the first-floor parlor, stop and browse through the fine collections of books. One pertains to the history of Louisville and Jefferson County, Kentucky and another encompasses antiques and antique furnishings of the mid-1800’s. Cross the foyer into the dining room and enjoy some freshly-baked goodies prior to retiring to your chambers.
