Myrtledene Bed & Breakfast

Used by Confederate General John Hunt Morgan as his headquarters during his raids on Lebanon, Myrtledene today offers slightly more relaxed environs for our guests. With four guest rooms, the house is completely furnished in antiques. Guests are encouraged to make themselves at home and make use of the entire house and grounds.

A second room with two twin beds can be added to accommodate a larger party.

Phones, television, wireless internet service, a library, a refrigerator, and piano are here for our guests' use. The large yard with gardens, wisteria arbor, fish pond, morning glory bower, swings, and hammocks are ideal for couples on a romantic retreat, readers looking for a peaceful spot, or children who need a safe place to play.

Myrtledene has been designated a Kentucky Landmark by the Kentucky Heritage Committee.

General Morgan was so enamored with Myrtledene that he chose to spare it when his Raiders burned and looted much of Lebanon, a Union stronghold. In fact, it was here where the white flag of truce was flown atop a pole used to clean the tall ceilings.


We are the heart of the Kentucky Holy Land, the settlement of dozens of Catholic pioneers who traveled from the British Isles, through Maryland, to make a home among the knoblands of Central Kentucky. This area has been the birthplace and home of such notable religious figures as Martin John Spalding and Thomas Merton, monk of Gethsemani Abbey.
