Luxury In Louisville!
Chateau Bourbon is set to become one of Louisville’s most sought after hotels, Bed and Breakfasts, boutique hotels; or if you just want to call it your home away from home a few times a year. Chateau Bourbon is inextricably woven into the fabric of the North Commons neighborhood, where you can park your car and walk the quaint streets.
Every year I focus on a surrounding state to explore. This year I am all about all things Kentucky; so I collaborated with the Louisville Tourism Bureau, and they said you have to stay at Chateau Bourbon.
Chateau Bourbon is like a fine Kentucky bourbon that never overwhelms you but makes you feel all warm and fuzzy; from the Southern Hospitality to the homemade breakfast each morning, Chateau Bourbon pays attention to every detail.
Does luxury come to mind when you think about Louisville? I am going to show you that luxury is right at your fingers tips and you don’t have to travel across the world to experience luxury; and not just regular ole luxury, but luxury sprinkled with a side of southern charm and a dash of bourbon.
My arrival at Chateau Bourbon
When I arrived at Chateau Bourbon I was greeted by Missy the owner of Chateau Bourbon and immediately I felt like I was apart of the family and not just another guest they “had” to deal with for a few days. Chateau Bourbon reflects the rich heritage and Southern gentility that have made Louisville a hot spot for bourbon drinkers, equestrians and Derby Day revelers.
“Leave your stuffiness at home”
If you are one of those people that believe in order for a hotel to be luxurious it has to be snooty and uptight Chateau Bourbon is about to change your mindset when it comes to luxury in the south. Missy wants you to Leave your stuffiness at the door and let her show you what southern hospitality is all about.
I was told to drop my bags by the front door because my bags could wait but the welcome cocktail could not!
“Comfort with a splash of bourbon”
After grabbing my cocktail Missy took me on a tour of the premises. There are only 4 suites at Chateau Bourbon and of course, all four suites have bourbon-themed decor.
This suite is on the 1st floor and is absolutely stunning from the 10 ft ceilings to the french doors and of course the King bed and the soaking tub.
“The Angel Share Suite”
This is the room I called home for 4 nights and it is the largest suite of Chateau Bourbon. I don’t know where they purchased the pillows and mattresses from but “Sweet Baby Black Jesus” that bed and those pillows felt like they were made especially for me. As if when my reservations where made someone knew exactly what kind of pillow I needed and my body just sank into the king size bed and was like you ain’t going nowhere lady for four days.
The suite also has a spacious sitting area, soaking tub, oversized tiled rain shower along with custom spa robes that fit my body perfectly. What else could I possibly need? Oh, wait I need my own private balcony overlooking Norton Commons where I could either enjoy an evening cocktail, people watch, or sit outside and get a little work done.
“Single Barel Suite”
The Single Barel Suite is also situated on the 2nd-floor. This suite also has a large private balcony overlooking the courtyard and features a private space for dining or just relaxing. Chateau Bourbon is about slowing down and unwinding so if you don’t want to leave the privacy of your room, guess what? you don’t have to leave.
The Stillhouse Suite
The last of the four suites is also situated on the 2nd-floor suite is perfect for families. This is the only suite that has two queen-sized beds, one inside the suite and a second queen size bed is in the enclosed outdoor sleeping porch. I wouldn’t suggest this suite in the winter because although it is enclosed the winter hawk will be sleeping right beside you.
In the summer, this room is perfect for opening the beautiful shutters, you can create an outdoor space perfect for sleeping on a cool summer night or a warm spring or fall evening.
Hungry Yet? This is a bed and Breakfast
After Sleeping in heavenly peace I awoke to the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, homemade french toast, eggs, and of course bourbon-inspired desserts just to get your day started with love!
Missy only uses fresh and local ingredients and most are produced right in Kentucky to ensure you are consuming the freshest fruits, veggies, and meats available. Chateau Bourbon is a member of Kentucky Proud partner, and they use and carry many of the items for retail sale.
Missy prepared homemade bourbon granola, bourbon-infused dessert and of course bourbon nightly bourbon cocktails.
