Specializing in comfort with a splash of bourbon

Experience Kentucky's #1 Rated Bed & Breakfast

The perfect choice for travelers seeking upscale accommodations in a down-home atmosphere. Located in the heart of Norton Commons, Louisville’s most unique and vibrant walkable community, you can ‘park & walk’ during your stay with everything you need just beyond our doorstep. And just 10 miles from downtown Louisville, you’re only minutes from everything the big city has to offer.

At Chateau Bourbon you can expect genuine hospitality, impeccable attention to detail and down-home southern charm. Taking standards from traditional 5-star hotels and adding our personal touches, Chateau Bourbon delivers an unforgettable guest experience you won’t find at your typical hotel/motel. Our grand home provides an elegant setting for our fun, welcoming atmosphere. Leave your stuffiness at the door and let us show you what southern hospitality is all about. With a cocktail in hand, come sit on our porch and let your worries fall by the wayside. 

 “Comfort with a splash of bourbon”

Whether you’re a bourbon newbie or a self-proclaimed bourbon nerd, we’ve got the experience you’re looking for. Let us share our passion for "America's native spirit" with you. Whether it’s discussing the distilling process, recommending a cocktail recipe, or sharing a tasting book, you’ll enrich your knowledge by experiencing the tradition of Kentucky bourbon like a local.


Rest assured that we are taking additional industry-standard precautions related to safety and sanitation. Visits will still include our 5-star hospitality, but will also include some necessary modifications to ensure social distancing and limit cross-contamination. Per Kentucky executive order, we ask that each person travel with a mask. You are encouraged to bring personal hand sanitizer, gloves, and/or wipes that necessitate your level of comfort. We have also added a COVID cancelation consideration to our policies.

Cocktails, anyone?! Our "Sips & Sweets" happy hour is one of the highlights of the guest experience here at Chateau Bourbon. Not only do we prepare a made-from-scratch, bourbon-infused dessert, but also a signature bourbon cocktail each evening. If that doesn’t put the ‘happy’ in happy hour, I don’t know what does!
