In 2020, the Beaumont Inn celebrates its 101th year. Located in the heart of bourbon and horse country, the Beaumont Inn is the perfect place to kick off your bluegrass experience. Our historic bed and breakfast is located in Kentucky’s oldest town, Harrodsburg, and is within walking distance of our quaint downtown.
The Inn itself hosts a variety of modern amenities including comfortable rooms and suites, meeting rooms perfect for any conference, walking trails, summertime pool, relaxing spa, personalized bourbon tastings with Innkeeper Dixon Dedman, and three restaurants: our legendary Dining Room, lively Old Owl Tavern, and cozy Owl’s Nest Pub.
Beaumont Inn has been honored with numerous hospitality and food awards, including the prestigious James Beard Foundation America’s Class Award (the Oscars of the food world). In January 2019, the Beaumont Inn and Innkeeper Dixon Dedman were featured in The New York Times in an article celebrating Kentucky Owl Bourbon and the history of the Inn. At the end of 2018 and early 2019, the Inn’s southern food, history, and traditions were explored by Kentucky Living Magazine, Kentucky Monthly Magazine, and the Kentucky Visitor’s Guide. In April 2019, Southern Living Magazine once again named the Beaumont Inn one of the South’s best places to stay.

The Beaumont Inn is also an official stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and provides tours from the Inn to the nearby distilleries. Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill and Centre College are also within quick driving distance.
