Bryan does an amazing job with this property. It's well maintained, peaceful, and he was quick to respond with any question I had before or during my stay.

The property is well maintained and just as described.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at the property. It is secluded and so peaceful. Saw several deer while we were there. We used the property as our home base to visit several places on the bourbon trail and to do some antique shopping. It's central location made it perfect for this. We are hoping to go back again when we can enjoy the porch and the fire pit! And Bryan was very accommodating, as we booked the property last minute,

Cissal Hill Farm & the Bardstown Bourbon Festival

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stumbled across the Bourbon Festival a couple of years ago coming from Nashville, Tennessee and had such a good time we made sure to plan to come back... And, that's exactly what we did this year.

We were not disappointed... We booked this rental in hopes that we could experience the local charm that is Kentucky and Bourbon Country. Cissal Hill Farm encompasses what we were hoping for. The views are what you'd picture if you were to read from an Ambrose Bierce short story. The quiet winds through the big oaks around the property is something to marvel. Wild turkey, deer, squirrel, crows, buzzards, coyotes. They're all there.

Rain on the tin roof... Oh, and the acorns falling off the tall oaks onto the tin roof will startle the bejeezus out of you at first, but you'll eventually grow used to the sound and learn to embrace the ambiance.

Stunning and Beautiful but...

  • 3 of 5

My two teen daughters and I spent three days at Cissal Farm, wanting to get away from it all. The farm is beautiful and relaxing. There are areas to hike on the property and the scenery is gorgeous. There is a spacious porch with a swing, a fire pit with plenty of chairs and tons of country charm. The fireflies are plentiful but so are the mosquitoes, so come prepared.

The interior was spacious and very tastefully decorated. The kitchen was well stocked and the beds were comfortable. The owner provides many DVD's, which was a nice added benefit. In addition, not only was the AC able to beat the heat, but the house was cool before we got there--a nice touch. It was an idyllic setting.

But we did have one glaring problem that truly put a damper on our stay. We spent one day out-and-about and came back in the evening. The gate to the property was open (we had locked it) and someone was bailing hay with a tractor. Not a big deal but it would have been nice to have been notified. The real problem was that the front door was unlocked. Knowing that I had locked it before leaving, I went and asked the guy on the tractor (Mark) if he had enter the house and he said no. This was very disconcerting to us and it didn't help when I texted Bryan and his response was "Sorry to hear that." WHAT?? He later apologized, said that he would "modify his systems to help mitigate that type of situation" and offered a discount on our next stay. But it was an awkward situation all the way around, even the solution offered was less than appealing--instead of "mediate" the situation, I would have preferred to hear a word like "alleviate". We rented a place and someone just entered the property unannounced, secretively and, to top it off, failed to secure the front door. If they had re-locked the front door, we would have never known they had entered. My daughters felt nervous and insecure and, as a protective dad, I was upset and this was compounded by what I perceived as a rather flippant attitude by Bryan.

The bottom line is this: Cissal Farm is a lovely setting, inside and out, and it has obviously been well tended. But to have a guest feel less than secure in your home is a serious breech of trust and, it is for that reason, I temper my recommendation of Cissal Farm.
