Thomas Irvine McElroy built this beautiful Greek Revival Plantation Home on nearly 600 acres and presented it as a Wedding Gift to his young bride, Sarah Jane Maxwell. Lavished with numerous architectural features, it is accented with Italianate detail, spans over 7,000 sq. ft., with 14' ceilings, 12' doorways, 9' windows, 13 original rooms - most are 20' x 20' with some even larger, and a grand cherry floating spiral staircase.
Its colorful past includes stories of an Antebellum Plantation, use as a Civil War Confederate Encampment and Union Field Hospital, the Childhood Home to Phil Simms - former NY Giants Quarterback and Super Bowl XXI's MVP, a popular Dinner Hall, and a Foster Children's Home to over 300 children. Today it is an award-winning Bed & Breakfast, Wedding and Special Events Showplace, Alpaca & Llama Farm, and Fiber Farm Store: Manor Cottage Gifts.
Kentucky Landmark Home.
This working farm is stately set on 15 tranquil acres in the heart of Kentucky's scenic Bluegrass Region (an hour southeast of Louisville and an hour southwest of Lexington), and the home is considered one of the best preserved Antebellum Homes in the Commonwealth. Its tranquil, country setting is surrounded by picturesque rolling hills of bluegrass with a 3,000 acre race horse farm on one side and 300 acre cattle and tobacco farm on the other - a beautiful and restful place to seek refuge and enjoy the country fresh air.
Come see for yourself why readers of Kentucky Monthly Magazine voted Maple Hill Manor as
"Kentucky's Best B&B."

In the evening, relax with us in the Parlor under the soft light of the elegant Murano crystal chandelier and enjoy a complimentary homemade dessert and beverage. A spacious parlor/communal area offers cozy surroundings for a game of cards, puzzle making or curling up with a good book. A Baby Grand Piano is available for our guests to enjoy as well.
