Bluegrass Urban Foodie

Breakfast at the Lyndon House can best be describes as “Bluegrass Urban Foodie.” For example, one menu favorite with guests is a Cinnamon Buttermilk Pancake service with a Blueberry-Bourbon Sauce.

A full breakfast is served in the first floor dining room between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. each morning. Of course, you may eat in the Sun Room or on the back porch as well.  Coffee is available as soon as you smell it. Breakfast begins with freshly cut fruit, warm biscuits, chilled orange juice, and Columbian coffee. Then guests can choose either the daily special or typical fare such as French toast or eggs cooked to order.  

Special dietary needs can be accommodated with advanced notice.


Accepted Payment 

The Lyndon House accepts debit cards, all major credit cards, Travelers checks, and cash. 


Third party bookings require a 1 night charge, or $200.00 deposit for multiple nights, at the time of booking.

During Premium Seasonal Events and Extended Stays (three or more nights) a 20% deposit is required at the time of booking. 


The cancellation deadline is 48 hours prior to the date of check-in. If you miss this deadline you will be charged for the balance owed for the entire reservation. If the booking was secured with a House Gift Certificate, the late cancellation will null and void the Certificate.

During Premium Seasonal Events and Whole House Rentals the cancellation deadline 30 days prior to the check-in date. If you miss this deadline you will be charged for the balance owed for the entire reservation. 

Should you cancel before the deadline, you will only be charged a 10% Re-booking Fee. 


Should you not check-in for a scheduled reservation you will be charged the balance owed for the entire reservation. You will also forfeit any rights and privileges inherent in the reservation.



Check-in time is 3:00 p.m. 

After 6 p.m.: The Lyndon House will hold a Guest’s reservations until 6pm on the date of arrival.  After 6 pm the Guest will be charge for a “No Show” and the room will be release for resale, unless the Guest made arrangements for a late check-in.

Early Check-In

Check-in time begins at 3:00 p.m. If a guest desires to check in before 3:00 p.m.,  special arrangement can be made to accommodate their wishes and an additional $25 fee will be charged.


Check-out time is 12:00 noon - because our housekeepers must have time to prepare the rooms for the next guests who check in at 3:00 p.m.

Early Check-Out

Should a guest check out before their scheduled departure date they are still responsible for the cost of the entire reservation. 

Late Check-Out

Unless previous arrangements have been made with the Innkeeper a $50 fee will be charged for late check-outs between 12:00 noon and 1:00 p.m.  Check-outs after 1:00 p.m. will incur another night's rent - because our housekeepers must have time to prepare the rooms for the next guests. 



Children are welcome at the Lyndon House; however, prior arrangements with the Innkeeper are required.  

Extra Person Fee

Each room is designed to accommodate 2 persons comfortably. To include a third adult in the same room an Extra Person Fee of $75 per night will be charged during regular business days - and $150 Extra Person Fee will be charged per night during the previously described Special Equestrian Events.

Gift Certificates

Gift certificates are available and can be purchased by a dollar amount. Certificates are valid for 12 month from the date of purchase. Should you attempt to cancel a reservation after the cancellation deadline, or not show up, it will become null and void.


Pets are are welcome at the Lyndon House and should be safe since the backyard is enclosed. However, prior arrangements with the Innkeeper are required - and a $35 pet fee will be charged per day. Naturally, we ask our guests to clean up any pet deposits made in the back yard - and to keep their pets out of the raised flower beds.  Charges for damages to the rooms will be assessed on an individual basis.  

Professional Photos

No professional or wedding photos may be taken on the premises without the express permission of the innkeeper. If permission is granted a $250 fee may be charged for photos taken on the premises.


Lyndon House is located about five blocks from the center of downtown Lexington which places our guests near a wide variety of restaurants and interesting activities - but our location also means that parking can be an issue.  However, there is free onsite parking for seven cars in the rear of the Lyndon House along Brent Alley - and right down the alley (100 ft.) there is  ample on-street public parking on historic Fayette Park, which is also free.

Property Damages

Charges for property damages will be assessed on an individual basis.

No Smoking

The Lyndon House is most definitely a smoke-free environment.  In fact, a $250 cleaning fee will be charged for smoking in a guest  room because the smell permeates the furnishings.  


A guest shall not sub-let or grant any license to use the Premises or any part thereof without the prior written consent of the Innkeeper.


Tipping is the reward for good service rendered by our Housekeeper when they clean or refresh your room. In a B&B the recommended tip for the Housekeeper is $5-10 per day.

During a Whole House or Group Rental a gratuity of $10 a day will be added to each room per day.
