Smaller events and dinners are often held on the venue’s old-world patio under a canopy of trees and lights surrounding a reflecting pond and fountain.

The Ashley Inn features overnight accommodations in the form of five unique guest rooms. Tastefully decorated to ensure guests are surrounded by a warm and inviting atmosphere, the space features private baths and a pet suite, perfect for those with furry companions.
We also offer several versatile spaces for couples to utilize during their wedding day celebration. In addition to a fully furnished bridal suite, the venue’s open-air, fully enclosable Carriage House—its limestone patio, white lights, and cocktail tables—serve as the ideal space to hold a rehearsal dinner or engagement celebration.
A successful part of the Kentucky wedding industry since 2007, our history dates back to 1840. Built by a southern family whose son-in-law marched by the estate on his way to fight in the Civil War, the historic venue served as both a dairy and a school before becoming The Meadow Lake Equestrian Center, the venue’s on-site, multi-discipline, full-service equestrian facility. Beautifully restored and tastefully decorated, The Ashley Inn is the perfect choice for romance and nostalgia.

The Best Weekend Ever
Chelsea & Tyler's Wedding
Best Wedding Venue in Kentucky
We opted to have our rehearsal and dinner on site and had The Ashley Inn cater the meal- FANTASTIC. It was laid-back, cozy, and a fun time for all.
On the wedding day all the ladies met at the venue for hair, makeup, and prep while they guys traveled to a nearby Airbnb. I never felt cramped or rushed or stressed. Heidi and her crew took care of the day-of details while I soaked in a bubble bath listening to Etta James. :)
Despite the weather taking a turn for the unexpected, Heidi and the venue accomodated everything with precision and as the bride, I hardly worried about the change of plans. (Originally it was supposed to be 88F/sunny and ended up being 56F/overcast)
We still had our ceremony on the front lawn, dinner under the pavilion, and dancing in the barn. Fortunately, the cooler weather made the dance party so much more comfortable and our pictures are to die for.
This venue offers: accommodations, vendors of your choosing, chairs & tables included, set-up/tear-down, a warehouse of rentals for decoration, catering options for events, catering options for breakfast/day-of, ability to bring your own alcohol, parking attendants, and so much more!!
I'll recommend booking The Ashley Inn forever! XOXO
