Scott Station Inn

The Inn

“Once a hotel that hosted train travelers passing through Wilmore, this bed and breakfast in historic downtown has a long tradition of accommodating guests. The dining and common rooms are ideal for enjoying gourmet meals and lively conversation with fellow boarders, while the bright and airy renovated rooms feature plush queen beds and energizing color palettes.”

Sarah and I are so happy you are visiting our website, and we hope what you see and read will result in you booking a visit to see us soon.  We have took up the stewardship of Scott Station Inn almost 4 years ago, and as we build upon the labors and love of the previous owners, we hope to continue to offer excellence in lodging and dining in the heart of Kentucky!  

Local businessman, Johnny Fitch, opened the Station as a B&B about 24 years ago. His vision was to create a “home place” as welcoming to his guests as your grandmother’s home. Johnny planted lavender along the walkway as you approach the Inn, and the air is still filled with the soft fragrance on warm summer evenings.

Joe and Nancy Greenfield acquired the Inn in 2010 and gave the Old Lady a wonderful face-lift with fresh siding, new windows, a new roof, a spacious deck, pergola, and lots of tender loving care in the gardens.

Sarah and I have focused our efforts on remodeling and renovating the interior spaces by adding new flooring, fresh paint, new HVAC, updated baths, a commercial kitchen, and we have furnished the Inn with the comfort of our guests as our first concern. All of our queen-size beds have memory foam toppers, down-like comforters with crisp white duvets, plush pillows, soft towels, and more.

We are both former teachers, and we believe education is one of the greatest gifts we can give our children. We cherish the memories we have of our time as educators, we learned a great deal from those years! And, we couldn’t be happier in our new roles as hospitality providers!!

We have met so many new people, made many new friends, and received many blessings in our new life! We believe we are providing a valuable service to our community by operating a comfortable place for guests to enjoy while reconnecting with family and friends and exploring the Uncommon Wealth of the Bluegrass!
