Elegant. Enchanting. Events. If you are in search of a warm and welcoming environment in a classic and elegant setting, then you have found the home for your picture-perfect wedding at the Ashley Inn. Our grounds are immaculate--complete with ponds, a lake, reflecting pools with fountains and garden statues. Meandor around english limestone paths through rose gardens, climatis-covered arbor and boxwood-lined walk-ways to meet up with views of horses around every corner. Our 165-year old grain silo is majestic at the center of attention and its Rapunzel-detailed tower peeks up over nearby barns and paddocks. Old growth trees grace the sloping lawns with seasonal change-of-color providing shade, interest and charm. The Antebellum Mansion is as refined and graceful as the Gone-with-the-Wind era which it chanels. Invite your out-of-town guests into lavishly designed oversized rooms and a full gourmet english country breakfast. Our new reception hall boasts stunning 200-degree views of the surrounding country-side with or without the tent walls and is a stylish and well-designed hall for your year-around reception. Enjoy your rehearsal dinner inside the Inn or pond-side on our old-world patio under a canopy of trees and lights. Our list of preferred vendors are not required, but have proven themselves over the years in providing the most enjoyable and enchanting events this side of the Mason-Dixon line.

Our middle daughter, Sara, was engaged two years before her actual wedding so we had plenty of time to plan and look at every option in our area. We looked at several locations but there were issues, some big, some small with every location we visited. I am familiar with Ashley Inn as my youngest daughter is very involved with horses and competing. We spent a lot of time at Meadow Lake (the equestrian side of the business) and had gotten to know the owners and employees of the property. Sara finally decided it was time to visit Ashley Inn to see what they could offer her for her big day. After many discussions in the following weeks, Sara finally told me "the Ashley Inn would be the location of my dream wedding". Well, as parents you always want to fulfill your child's dreams so we signed the contract to have the ceremony and reception at the Ashley Inn. Working with the Howland's and staff was a wonderful experience. Every phone call, email and text were returned in a timely manner and everyone was always so nice and friendly. We made several trips to look at the location again, to discuss and debate the visual experience Sara wanted for her guests and they NEVER got tired of accommodating us. This venue is one of the most beautiful locations in Central Kentucky. I have had numerous guests tell me that Sara's wedding was the most beautiful wedding they have ever attended. The beauty of the Ashley Inn and the surrounding horse farm played an integral part in making the event so beautiful. The decorations we brought were very minimal because you just can't compete with Mother Nature and she certainly made this area a showcase! The day after the wedding Sara told us "my wedding was more than I could have ever dreamed of". I would recommend the Ashley Inn to anyone looking for a spectacular venue to start their "happily ever after"! Thank you to the Howland's and their staff for their help in making the day perfect.

All I can say about the Ashley Inn is that this place is magical. We rented the place for the entire weekend so that my husband's family coming in from out of town could stay close by since they had never been to KY before. They were enchanted. The home is outstanding, the service is impeccable, the breakfast absolutely delicious, and the grounds just beyond beautiful so much so that you dont even have to do much decorating because trust me your guests will be looking at the scenery not the balloons you hung from the ceiling. And there is absolutely no way you can take bad pictures in this place. The Ashley Inn made my little girl wedding dreams come true!

My fiancé (now husband) and I searched everywhere for a beautiful outdoor location that would allow us to bring in outside catering and alcohol. We stumbled upon the Ashley Inn by happenstance, and I am so glad we did! We all fell in love with it the first time we visited and I swear the place gets prettier every time I'm out there. Both Amandas and Megan are all three so helpful and return e-mails quickly. Multiple guests told us that it was the prettiest wedding they'd ever been to! It's perfect for pictures, and having the horses in the background of our reception pictures just adds to the romantic feeling! I'd recommend this place to anyone and everyone looking to get married outdoors with a Kentucky or shabby chic theme!

The staff was so friendly and welcoming. They let us have free reign of the house, from using the kitchen, to exploring the grounds, and even storing food in the fridge! I can't say enough good things about everyone. It stormed on our wedding day. NOT rained, STORMED! Everyone was so helpful with getting all the decoration inside and coming up with alternatives, and then wiping down chairs and putting the decorations back up when the weather cleared for 20 minutes and we had the ceremony. We had a very small wedding and were watching the radar hoping that things would clear up, so we kept pushing the start time back. This obv. pushed dinner service back as well and everyone was so flexible with moving the times. The chef wasn't even upset and just rolled with it! The storms came back like a banshee through dinner which was kind of funny really (were talking downed trees and the likes) and then the Ashley provided everyone with umbrellas to get down to the carriage house to party down. Everything was perfect and our fist dance pics in the covered carriage house turned out amazing b/c our videographers were able to capture the lighting in the background. The pictures turned out truly stunning. Big thanks to The Ashley Inn!

For our wedding day, The Ashley Inn was perfect. The scenery is beautiful and the location is ideal for a private environment. They do allow guests to stay in the "hotel" (it's technically a house) if you don't book the "Grand Weekend" package, but we didn't have that problem. I fell in love with this place the moment I saw it. We decided to have our ceremony out in the Grove and our reception was under their pavilion beside the Grove. We chose the Saturday package and we were given full access to the grounds around the house and two rooms, one for the bride and her maids along with one for the groom and his men. These rooms were in two separate buildings, so the risk of seeing each other was minimized. For our wedding, we did all of the decorating, but The Ashley Inn does have decorative options for extra fees. During our ceremony, it started to pour down rain (luckily after the "I Do's"). We decided to not put the doors up on the pavilion, which they offered to do just in case the rain did decide to attend. After the rain settled, we continued with the reception. Right when we all started to get our groove on, the electricity on the entire grounds goes out. The storm knocked a tree branch onto the main power line. The Inn got us a generator in record time and we were back in business. They were great with the time of their responsiveness. At the end of the night, the owners came out to the reception and gave us two beautiful gifts: a couple's bible and a free cleanup. They charge a pretty large fee for them to cleanup, but they felt bad for the electricity situation. They wouldn't even take our tip. These people were wonderful with communicating with us during the planning process and were extremely flexible. I don't have one bad word to say about them.

My son and his bride-to-be chose The Ashley Inn for their wedding, and we couldn't be happier with their decision. We live in Texas and were making wedding plans over the phone and via email, but Meaghan was extremely responsive to Ashley's questions, putting her at ease over her decision to have the wedding out-of-state. Even though it was December 1 in Kentucky, the weather could not have been nicer, so we had the wedding outside on the lawn in front of the house. The Ashley Inn is a beautiful pre-Civil War brick mansion with white columns, and the front porch provided the perfect setting for the ceremony, just as the Carriage House was perfect for the reception. We booked the entire place from Thursday through Sunday, and with the extra accommodations, we were able to have the entire wedding party, as well as immediate family members, stay right on the property itself. Meaghan and her staff were incredibly helpful and thoughtful throughout the entire weekend. Whatever we needed, she was ready. The food was outstanding, from the delicious breakfasts to the rehearsal dinner to the reception itself, and the wedding cake is one of the best I have ever eaten. Many family members and friends have said this was the best wedding they had ever attended, and we have Meaghan and The Ashley Inn to thank for that. If you want an absolutely gorgeous setting, wonderful food, and delightful people to work with, you can't go wrong with The Ashley Inn.

The Ashley Inn was the absolute perfect venue for our wedding! The staff was incredible and helped with everything. Our bartenders did not show up and Matt put out the wine and played bartender until one came. My husband and I did not even know anything had gone wrong. This is a perfect example of how great a venue this is. Not only are the grounds, mansion, and venue itself beautiful, but you also have the comfort of knowing the staff will help with anything you may need and most likely have it done before it becomes an issue. I highly recommend this venue to all brides!

The Ashley Inn provides a unique combination of peace, calm, beauty and history in providing the ideal setting for a perfect wedding. Meghan, Greg and staff provide professional, Christian leadership during all aspects of the event. The wedding was held lakeside at sunset with perfect weather. My son awaited as his bride approached from a distant barn in a horse drawn carriage with her father. As she neared the wedding site, passing between two fenced fields, the horses in each of the fields, as if scripted and on cue, ran to the fence to greet her as she rode by. Many guest, including men, remarked that this was the most unique and beautiful wedding experience that they had ever attended. Thank you Ashley Inn for sharing in our son and daughter-in-law's special day.
