Local Accommodations: Near By:
There are several charming bed-and-breakfasts operating in the historic homes that line Danville's older streets. The best way to inquire about rooms in these homes is to call the Campus Visit Coordinator through the admissions office. We recommend a beautifully restored pre-Civil War home, the Twin Hollies (406 Maple Ave.; 859-236-8954), a short one-and-a-half blocks from campus, and the Elmwood Inn (205 E. 4th St., Perryville; 859-332-2400) on the banks of the Chaplin River, 10 minutes from Center. The Elmwood, an 1842 Greek Revival house listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has 2 rooms, and the moderate price includes a full breakfast with homemade muffins. Less expensive accommodations can be found within 5 miles of the school at the Days Inn (U.S. Rte. 127; 859-236-8600), or the Super 8 Motel (U.S. Rte. 150; 859-236-8881). The Bright Leaf Resort and Motel (U.S. Rte. 127 S., 1742 Danville Rd., Harrodsburg; 859-734-5481), about 5 miles from campus, is an inexpensive resort-type facility with a health club, outdoor pool, fishing lakes, and golf course. Special golf packages are available.
 
Local Accommodations: Far Away:
About 15 miles from the college (two miles from Shakertown), is the Canaan Land Farm Bed and Breakfast (4355 Lexington Rd., Harrodsburg; 859-734-3984), an 18th-century brick building listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Benjamin Daniel house. The house is filled with antiques, sheep and goats are raised on the farm, and There's a pool. Rates are inexpensive and include a full country breakfast. About 10 miles from the college is the Beaumont Inn (638 Beaumont Dr., Harrodsburg; 859-734-3381). This full-service hotel has tennis courts and a swimming pool, and offers golf privileges. See the University of Kentucky entry for other suggestions.
