Named for the flock of Canadian geese that swoop over the property each evening, so close that guests can hear wings whooshing, Goose Hill Downs provides tranquil lodging in Berea, KY. Raised with old fashioned Southern values, husband and wife team Andy and Rene have rooted Goose Hill Downs in those same traditions.
Wake up to a hearty Southern breakfast of farm fresh eggs, homemade fruit preserves, Goose Hill Downs' signature cinnamon rolls, biscuits and gravy, sausage and other traditional offerings. Goose Hill Downs takes pride in serving farm-to-table fresh fruits and vegetables; its menu changes daily. Throughout the day, you may find yourself walking the grounds bursting with exquisite flora - including daylilies, ornamental grass, rose gardens, phlox and Jane magnolias. Hand feed the farm's resident animals - alpacas, horses, calves, ducks and baby chicks among them - or do some exploring around the pond.
Built from the ground up, Andy and Rene designed the home and finished it in September 2011. Goose Hill Downs continues to be a work in progress.
