I'm looking for a budget-minded romantic weekend getaway in the Lexington, KY or Louisville, KY area. I'd like a Bed and Breakfast/Inn setting with a country atmosphere. Also, I'd prefer something that is "not" Victorian style. (To me, that decor is not romantic, and it's stuffy and uncomfortable.) I'm hoping to find something around $100 or so per night. (Less would be wonderful!) It must have a private bath; king-size bed preferred due to height/size.

Does anyone know a place like this? I've conducted numerous searches, but I haven't located any in that area that aren't Victorian style. I've included a photo of one place (which was a little too far out and also over my budget). This is similar to what I'd like to find. Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions!

I am from Frankfort, KY, which is conveninetly located directly between Lexington and Louisville. Also the capital of KY. Anyway, I did a little browsing in the area and there are several B and B's in the area. Unfortunately many of them are "victorian" style. I agree with you that it is not very romantic. More of a stuffy feeling. during my search I came across a place called Kentucky Mansion Tourist Bed and Breakfast. I was not able to find a website for it but I do have a number for you. 859-873-2000. Also I did read a couple excellent reviews and have included the link for you to reas as well. http://www.yell  ews?lid=15034728

I hope this helps!!

There is a nice place 20 miles south of ft. Knox called mountain laurel lake resort 270-756-2737. www.Lakedream.Com lots of people go there and it is out in the middle of nowhere. My uncle says he fishes off his deck when there.

My husband is currently looking at a couple of job positions in Campbellsville, KY and Sault Ste Marie, MI. I was wondering if anyone had any info about these two cities, what to do, etc. I have spent most of my life in Louisville, KY area and my husband near Corydon, IN.

We have a 4yo and a 2yo. The only things we really know is that the winters in MI are brutal and the temps in the summer are usually no higher than 75. My husband used to work in Hodgenville so we know a little about the Campbellsville area because of that.

I will be grateful for any information, especially how to survive a winter in MI, just in case.

I'm originally from Michigan, and though it's been a long time I remember Sault Ste. Marie as being pretty small and really remote. It's far to the north. The climate up there would be a big adjustment from Kentucky! The UP gets a lot of snow. Personally I liked living in the north country--lots of trees and fresh air. Northern Michigan is beautiful but the bracing climate is something to consider. Hopefully someone can answer your questions in more detail.

We went to visit my brother in Kentucky and we decided to go to the zoo. It was a gorgeous day, and this little guy decided he wanted to show off. I snapped several photos of him, but this was the best.

I was out at a park in and was trying to photograph other birds when this heron wandered out from behind some tall grass. I hoped to snap a shot of the bird catching a fish, but no luck!

This was taken during our recent trip to Kentucky to visit my husband's parents. The trees were nearly at their peak in the fall season. The falls and rainbow were truly beautiful.

A blue heron fishing in Beaver Marsh in Ohio.

I took this photo of a great blue heron, while he was fishing at Beaver Marsh last week. Beaver Marsh was an auto salvage/junk yard a few decades ago until some busy beavers built a dam, and flooded the area.

The flowers there were so beautiful! They are about three weeks ahead of Ohio's flowers. These were outstanding and I had to snap the photo.
