Our historic bed and breakfast provides a refreshing lodging alternative to typical hotels for your business trip, vacation, or weekend getaway retreat in Louisville, KY. If you are traveling with your dog, we even have pet friendly rooms available. It is our goal to make your stay as pleasant and as memorable as possible. To that end, we have the following policies. Please read through them, and if you have any questions, please contact us.

General Information

  • Reservations: To make a reservation, click “book now” on our website, call us directly at 888-895-1011 or email us. If the website shows the room you want is unavailable for your stay, please call us. Sometimes we can accommodate and switch you to another room for part of your stay. A credit card is required at the time of booking to hold a room. We will provide an email confirmation.
  • Reservations for the Rose Cottage or the Attic Suite require a $100 non-refundable deposit when booked for a weekend night (Friday and Saturday)
  • Cancellations:  We understand that life can throw a curve ball and plans can unexpectedly change.  We make lots of preparations, including purchases and staff scheduling based upon reservations.  We are greatly affected by cancellations so you must agree to the following policy at the time of booking:                   Cancellations must be made via email at  Reservations cancelled more than 7 days in advance of the date of arrival are accepted with no charge (Less $100 non-refundable deposit on Rose Cottage and Attic Suite on a Friday or Saturday night). Reservations cancelled after that time period are charged the full amount unless the room is rebooked. Credit cards used to book the reservation will be charged the full amount of the reservation 7 days before the date of arrival as that is the end of the cancellation window. Derby weekend, holiday weekends, group bookings, and several convention weeks require longer cancellation periods, and we will forewarn you of this policy at the time of booking. A nonrefundable deposit of $100 per room is also due for these special bookings.
  • THE INN AT WOODHAVEN DOES NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR CHANGES TO YOUR RESERVATON DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER, UNFORESEEN CHANGES TO TRAVEL PLANS, PERSONAL SICKNESS (INCLUDING COVID-19) OR INJURY, OR FAMILY EMERGENCIES.  If you have any concerns about our cancellation policy we strongly recommend purchasing travel insurance or our cancellation coverage through our website.
  • Last-Minute Availability: Don’t be afraid to call us at the last minute. We sometimes have openings and if we do…ask us about a discount!
  • No Show Guests: We take our job of providing our guests with beautiful, comfortable accommodations seriously. When you fail to arrive as scheduled it prevents us from providing a room to another guest, and we will be forced to charge your account accordingly. We hate to do this, so please let us know if you wish to change or cancel your reservation.
  • Trip Insurance: There is an option available for anyone to cover any unexpected necessity to cancel your trip. Check out these sites for more information on trip insurance. and
    I’m sure there are many more excellent companies out there that also cover such things as weather delay, medical emergencies, rental car damage, etc.
