Welcome to the Ashley Inn! I’m Meagan. I never imagined that I would own a destination wedding and event venue, but truly this is a culmination of all my careers and education. I have always had a passion for older homes built with details that charm and warm the senses. When my husband and I stumbled upon the Ashley Inn in 2007, I instantly fell in love with the antebellum home and the breathtaking horse farm surrounding it. Thankfully, the locals also had a fondness for this home and when they approached me about offering it as a wedding venue, I was thrilled to accommodate. We have now been in the Central KY wedding business for 15 years. It’s been pure joy!

Hello! I’m Jodi. A few years ago I transplanted to Kentucky from Colorado. It has been a blessing to live in such a beautiful state with such hospitable people! I am a wife, mama to 6 kiddos and 2 daughters-in-law, and grandma to one adorable lil’ guy. I was in ministry for over 10 years before moving to Kentucky and I look forward to now serving you, our guests, here at the Ashley Inn.


I helped host a wedding party luncheon the day of the wedding. Heidi and the staff were so wonderful to work with. Heidi helped plan the menu and gave some great ideas on what to serve. Everything was handled through email and phone calls. No stress on my part at all. AND the luncheon was fabulous!

Where do I even begin? I am obsessed with The Ashley Inn, and my entire wedding weekend that was spent there.

- James & Ashley

Our family stayed the entire weekend at the Ashley Inn for our daughter and son-in-law's wedding. It was absolutely beautiful and a wonderful way to celebrate together. Shout out to Heidi and her team!! Spectacular to work with and went above and beyond to make our event memorable.

The best decision I made as a bride was picking The Ashley Inn. The actual venue property has so many great spaces you’re able to utilize and make for beautiful pictures. We paid a little extra for Heidi, the wedding coordinator, to be there for the day of our wedding. It was worth every penny, she took care of everything!

This venue! Unlike any other, it was absolutely fantastic. From the day we took an in-detail tour, to the day we said “I Do”, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience… Book this venue NOW before there aren’t any dates left!
