Some friends and I are looking at heading to KY for a bachelor party weekend. What we're interested in is a 'centrally located' place to stay where we can easily get to distilleries and possibly to Louisville. I've found hotels in/around Louisville, Lexington, and some in Frankfort, but a private cabin or something similar would be preferable (not bed-and-breakfasts though). There will be 7 or so of us. If those of you who live in 'Bourbon Country' or those that have favorite places to stay when you visit have any suggestions, I would appreciate it.
Also appreciated would be tips about which distilleries are best to tour (I hear that Woodford Reserve is nice) and which to avoid (I hear the Jim Beam American Outpost can be disappointing depending on what you expect).
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
