Experience Appalachia & Southern Hospitality

Since 1909, we have treated guests to a unique experience of Appalachian hospitality. The hotel offers quaint rooms and award-winning meals. After a long hike at the Pinnacles, find a cozy place on our veranda and enjoy a beverage from the Frost Café. Come to Berea for a night, a weekend or longer, and plan to explore everything that Berea College has to offer.


Here, the blue grass of Kentucky meets the rolling hills of Appalachia at The Historic Boone Tavern Hotel & Restaurant. Our storied hotel in Berea, Kentucky is in its second century of providing guests with a memorable experience.

Pine Croft Cottage

Built in 1919, the Pine Croft Cottage was home to Ms. Anna Ernberg, a native of Sweden who came to Berea College to oversee the Fireside Industries at Berea College. The cottage sits adjacent to the Berea College Forest and the Pinnacles hiking trails.  The cottage is only 2 miles from Boone Tavern which makes it the perfect place to stay if you would like some peace and quiet while still enjoying everything Berea has to offer.
