    With the Kentucky Derby around the corner, the choice of where to stay in Louisville for the Kentucky staple is simple with the top four bed and breakfasts in Louisville. 

    Dupont Mansion Bed and Breakfast

    Spend the weekend at the Dupont Mansion Bed and Breakfast and enjoy the elegance and grandeur of a piece of Louisville history.  With suites named after Thomas Edison, J.P. Morgan and Andrew Carnegie, guests of the Dupont Mansion can’t help but to plan their second stay from the beginning.  The grand parlor is the perfect, picturesque place for pictures before Derby. 

    Location: 1317 S 4th Street

    1853 Inn at Woodhaven

    While this restored Gothic Revival Mansion sits in St. Matthews, the drive to Churchill Downs is worth the stay.  The inviting Derby room features 20-foot ceilings, exposed brick walls and imaginative styles.  This restored mansion, which is listed on the historic register, also features its signature dish of caramel French toast, along with low-fat, vegetarian and organic, local food options. 

    Location: 401 South Hubbards Lane

    Aleksander Bed and Breakfast

    This 1882 Victorian house has been transformed into an eco-friendly bed and breakfast in the heart of Old Louisville, minutes from Churchill Downs.  With prints of 19th century French impressionists lining the walls of the Aleksander Bed and Breakfast, guests will enjoy every minute in this European style bed and breakfast.  On the morning of the Kentucky Derby, guests will descend down one of the two grand staircases to the garden deck.

    Location: 1213 South First Street

    Columbine Bed and Breakfast

    Through the stained glass window standing behind the grand staircase, guests are welcomed to the picturesque, stunning traditional Columbine bed and breakfast.  Only minutes away from Churchill Downs, guests enjoy fresh colors decorating the inviting rooms and rose marble fireplaces. 

    Location: 1707 S 3rd Street
