Trip Report Long Weekend in KY: Bourbon Trail and Mammoth Cave

Jump to last reply

My husband and I had a fantastic weekend in KY. We based ourselves in Bardstown, KY so we could tour the bourbon trail easily. It worked well. And Bardstown is really charming. We also drove on Sunday to Mammoth Cave so we could do a Wild Cave tour, which was terrific.

We stayed at the Best Western in Bardstown. We normally prefer something local to a chain but we had to stick within a budget for this trip and the local places were significantly more expensive. The Best Western was close enough to town to walk in for dinner and drinks. Not terribly close but convenient enough if you enjoy walking. The place was a standard chain hotel and included the standard chain hotel breakfast. The front desk clerk, Brian, was wonderfully pleasant.

Overall food was ok--not a lot of healthy fare available at any of the mid-range restaurants we went to. And very little on offering for vegetarians. We ate at:

Mammy's Restaurant, Bardtown - Sandwiches and burgers. Friendly service and good satisfying food.

Talbot Tavern, Bardstown - Interesting for its history and had friendly wait and bar staff. We enjoyed a meal here (I ate tomato soup as there were no veggie entrees) and then had fun enjoying a band playing in the bar.

El Rincon, Bardstown - The same Mexican fare served at every casual Mexican restaurant I have ever been in. Which is what we wanted. So it was fine by us and the service was friendly.

Ricardo's, Versailles (I learned it is locally pronounced Ver-sales) - Again, sandwiches and burgers. Again not really any veggie options but friendly service and it satisfied (I ate a Caesar salad).

Mammoth Cave Coffee Shop: It was cold, wet and rainy after we emerged from the cave and we were really hungry. So hot tea and burgers hit the spot. Plus they had a veggie burger here!
