Kentucky’s first bourbon-themed bed and breakfast, dubbed Chateau Bourbon, 10630 Meeting St. in Norton Commons, will open on Repeal Weekend, Dec. 5, for free tours, and then for regular business.

Co-owners Missy and John Hillock will offer four suites that will sleep up to 10 guests, breakfasts featuring dishes like bourbon syrup-covered pancakes or biscuits with blueberry-bourbon compote, specialty cocktails and related events between trips to distilleries.

The owners hope the bed and breakfast will draw tourists visiting the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, and think that the continued rise of the popularity of bourbon and the growth in Norton Commons created perfect timing for the bed and breakfast.
