Experience the Hills of Kentucky with a Stay Inside a Giant Bourbon Barrel
Remember when your family trips as a kid? Back then, if you were heading to a different city, your options for a place to stay were limited to a hotel, a motel, or maybe a campground. Obviously, those are all still options today, and many of them are still great options, but as time has gone on, many of us have looked for something different. Something with a little more privacy or something unique has led to the rise in services like Airbnb and VRBO. While you won't find this Kentucky retreat on either one of those apps, when it comes to a unique experience, the Bourbon Barrel Retreat certainly looks like it fits the bill.
The retreat is located in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky just over an hour's drive southeast of Louisville or just over a 45-minute drive west of Lexington depending on which way you're coming from. The retreat sits right in the heart of the famous Kentucky Bourbon Trail and is anywhere from a 15 to 40-minute drive from most of the more popular bourbon distilleries in the region including, Maker's Mark, Jim Beam, Woodford Reserve, Four Roses, Wild Turkey, Buffalo Trace, and Heaven Hill.
While the location is certainly a selling point, the cabins are what make it unique as each is built like giant bourbon barrels. Take a look.

The retreat also features concierge service with a staff of individuals, including the owners, who will help you plan the perfect trip free of charge. Not a bourbon fan, or a drinker in general? No problem. One of the staff members can help get you set up with non-bourbon experiences and dining recommendations.
