The Mentz Hotel, National Registry of Historic Places, was built in 1905 as a train station hotel that hosted guests going to Mammoth Cave. Mr. Mentz & his family ran the Mammoth Cave Railroad Company, 1853-1930. The hotel was established as the Grand Victorian Inn and newly restored 2015. Karin & Gary Carroll had a vision for this inn, and after two successful B&B’s in Glasgow they started their third (just recently selling the Glasgow B&B’s to other entrepreneurs). The Victorian Inn hosts a charming wraparound porch and is 1 mile from Interstate 65 and Mammoth Cave National Park & Diamond Caverns. Some of the many area attractions include the Bell’s Tavern, National Corvette Museum, Lincoln’s Birthplace, Bourbon Trail, South Central Kentucky Cultural Center Museum, Plaza Theatre, & Yancy’s Brewery. The individually decorated queen rooms feature free Wi-Fi, cable TV, en suite bathrooms, & central a/c and heat. Nine rooms are upstairs, and two are downstairs, Suite Renfro (ADA accessible) & Suite Joy which features a hand carved half Teaster canopy bed and a separate parlor room. Full breakfast is complimentary at 8:30. The hotel also features a cozy Mammoth Railway Café with wood floors & train theme. Hours of operation unless hosting a private event are Thurs, Fri, Sat 11-8 for lunch & dinner. We also host Weddings & Special Events. Future plans include a pool & Jacuzzi, fire-pit & patio and a train station for the corner to be a replica of the original.

Abraham Lincoln’s cousin married Theodosia’s cousin. Relax in the parlor, library, or billiards/game room.

The Dickinson Greer house was built in 1810. It was established as Main Street Bed & Breakfast in 2010. The house was built by Samuel Jordan who was a bricklayer & the jailer of Glasgow at the time. He built the house for Mr. Giddings, a school master in Glasgow, but shortly after it was finished Thomas Childs Dickinson bought it. The architecture resembles the Flounder style from Virginia. It is now owned by Cherie Vaughan and her sweet puppy LuLu. Guests can enjoy a cozy stay surrounded by antiques and family history.
