A History of Southern Hospitality

The Boone Tavern Hotel features 63 guestrooms and six suites furnished with hand-made early American-style furniture made by Berea students in the College’s Student Craft program. Two miles from the hotel is the Pine Croft Cottage, adjacent to the Berea College Forest and The Pinnacles hiking trails, named the “Best Hike in Kentucky” by Outside magazine. It offers three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a kitchen, dining, and living area.

About the Hotel

The hotel has 8,552 square feet of meeting and event space spread across seven separate rooms, each space accommodating up to 150 guests for weddings, reunions, conferences, and other gatherings. The kitchen sources hyper-local organic produce from the 500-acre Berea College Farm, one of the oldest continuously operating educational farms in the United States. The award-winning restaurant has served the legendary cornbread soufflé known as Boone Tavern Spoonbread at the start of every lunch and dinner for more than 75 years. It’s one of the many dishes made with regional “Kentucky Proud” ingredients.
