1840 Tucker House

When in Louisville, stay in a historic bed and breakfast to relish the history, lifestyle, and cuisine of antebellum Kentucky. Tucker House is set on five acres of striking beauty -- with woods, gardens, and a spring-fed lake. You may take in the beautiful landscape from the comfort of the decks or brick patio, or you might choose to explore the area more completely by putting on hiking boots and old clothes and roaming the woods around the lake. Your sights will include the original stone spring house, a dry-laid masonry wall, and the quarry that supplied the stone for the foundation of Tucker House and its outbuildings over 162 years ago. Nature, history, and tranquility seem to co-exist in this place. This is a perfect setting for a bed and breakfast inn. As you follow the winding cherry banister to the second floor, the four guest chambers await, each with its own private bath. While each room has been meticulously appointed with antiques of the era, three have been furnished with reproduction queen-sized beds for your sleeping comfort. The fourth bedroom has an authentic 1820's rope bed with full-sized bedding. Relish the history and the lifestyle of antebellum country living within a metropolitan area. In 1839, Hazael and Nancy Jane Tucker purchased their homestead and, approximately one year later, commissioned John Stone to build this brick, Federal-style home, which has now been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Tucker House Bed & Breakfast is located between the historic communities of Middletown and Jeffersontown and is just 15 miles from downtown Louisville. Innkeepers Devona and Steve Porter have faithfully restored this beautiful home, turning back the clock to the 1840s. Using their collection of early 19th century antiques, they have recreated the flavor of early country living in Kentucky. They were presented with a "Preservation Award" from the Louisville Historical League for their authentic preservation work on Tucker House. This Kentucky landmark has solid brick walls, original poplar floors and trim, seven fireplaces and gorgeous, old seeded-glass windows. In the first floor parlor, stop and browse through two fine collections of books. One pertains to the history of Louisville and Jefferson County, Kentucky, and the other encompasses antiques and antique furnishings.
