Safety & Hospitality

At Southern Grace Bed and Breakfast, we are taking the Covid-19 virus seriously. We have received dozens of calls and emails asking whether we are still open or not. We will remain open. As always, we continue to sanitize and clean everything thoroughly. We are following all CDC guidelines. We are fortunate to have a large property allowing for plenty of social distancing. Two of our rooms even have their own private entrance for that extra peace of mind. We are monitoring any staff and limiting the amount of time staff is at the property. We are allowing the postponement of reservations from now until April 30th. Reservations can be moved to any time in 2020 (pending availability and rates). 


Allow Southern Grace to be that private safe getaway for you. Use this time to relax and unwind from the stress. The televisions in each room provide access to many major news outlets so you can keep up with the updates as often or as little as you would like.

            We understand there have been a lot of changes in the last few weeks due to the virus. Many restaurants are closed. We have decided to offer meals for $30 for two. We will continue to provide our world-famous breakfasts. You would get a home cooked dinner served in your room. Once you check in, you won’t even have to leave the property. We have all the essentials needed for your stay and plenty to keep you busy and distracted. Spend your days in quarantine fishing, walking, feeding animals, reading by the ponds, paddle boating and so much more. Since we only have six rooms, there is never a crowd here. 

            We would hate for this to limit people from being able to travel and getaway. We all need a vacation from time to time.  If you can’t stay with us at this time due to the virus, purchase a gift certificate (and receive 20% off) to be used for future stays.  Support small business America and save 20% at the same time.

David and Theresa

Meet your hosts

David and his wife, Theresa, have carved out a bucolic niche in the rolling hills of west-central Kentucky that offers guests a peaceful retreat, outstanding food and an opportunity to experience a bit of farm living. “We have guests who want to feed the animals and gather the eggs, and others who don’t. Here, it is all about what you want to do,” says Theresa. “We offer much more personal service than a hotel. You get a luxurious getaway that you are positive is going to be clean, and you don’t have to worry about the garbage trucks waking you up in the morning!”


The house, built by the Padgetts’ son at age 23, offers five guest rooms, each with a private bath, and four-poster beds with possibly the most comfortable mattresses on Earth. “We did a lot of research,” Theresa says, “on which mattresses were the best, the most comfortable, and these had the highest ratings. Our guests love them.” The addition of 600-thread-count linens makes a great night’s sleep inevitable. The rooms also are equipped with flat-screen TVs, free Netflix, WiFi, small refrigerators and coffee service.

The main floor features gleaming hardwood floors, cozy lounging areas, a formal dining room and an enormous eat-in kitchen that affords views of the pool and seemingly endless green, rolling hills. A 17th century cabinet that had belonged to Theresa’s grandmother is in one corner, and a Civil War-era mantel frames the fireplace. Magazines and books abound, and a community computer is available to all, free of charge. “We do not charge our guests for any of the amenities,” Theresa says. “There are no ‘hidden’ fees.”

If an excursion off-property is your desire, the list of possibilities is extensive. Southern Grace is located 1 mile from shopping and restaurants. Southern Indiana’s Turtle Run Winery, Huber’s Orchard and Winery and Squire Boone Caverns are easy commutes, as are several stops on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Local shopping venues such as Everett & Allie’s offer shoppers one-of-a-kind, often locally made items, and historical attractions such as Abraham Lincoln’s Boyhood Home at Knob Creek Park is within easy driving distance, Southern Grace is only a mile from town….
