If it's just you and your gals for a long weekend, be sure to spend sometime in the spa "cottage" for treatments like crytotherapy (cold therapy), massages, and facials.

Throughout the year, The Kentucky Castle puts on a wide range of events that are suited to every type of traveler. Those seeking R&R will love the options for rooftop sunset yoga or goat yoga with the property's baby goats. You can treat you and your gal pals to a ticketed wine and cheese pairings, garden party, or special afternoon tea. For dinner and a show, try one of The Kentucky's Castle's interactive murder mystery dinners. If it's your first visit to the sprawling property, a guided tour of the castle and farm will give you a greater appreciation for the beauty all around you.
