The Woodford Inn is a historic home nestled among the beautiful horse farms of central Kentucky. We are located just outside of Lexington, KY in the heart of historic Versailles. The Woodford Inn is just a short drive to several famous area attractions including the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland Race Course, and several of the bourbon distilleries along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
As you drive through Lexington and Versailles to reach our Inn, you’ll pass by some of the most beautiful and prestigious thoroughbred breeding farms in the world. Dubbed the "Horse Capital of the World” horse farms have been part of the Bluegrass since it was first settled.
The history of The Woodford Inn is as deep as the area surrounding it. The property dates back to 1876, and the current building was constructed by the Cleveland Orphanage Institution in 1926. The building, a three and a half story Dutch Colonial Revival building, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Cleveland House.
To make your visit even more special, dine-in at our full-service restaurant and bar, The Paddock at The Woodford Inn. Located on the first floor of The Woodford Inn, you will love the quality and convenience of the Paddock. We serves a variety of delicious homemade southern cuisine open to the public for lunch and dinner five days a week, and a delicious brunch every Sunday. Our dining porch and large outside covered pavilion will ensure a relaxing dining experience.
