Boone Tavern was built on the College Campus of Berea in 1909 and still welcomes visitors today.

Many people visited Berea College, and VIPs would stay at the college President's home when they came to visit. As the colleges' reputation grew, the number of visitors increased. Eventually, Boone Tavern Hotel and Restaurant was built to host them. Some people that have stayed at Boone Tavern include the Dalai Lama, President and Mrs. Calvin Coolidge, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Maya Angelou. This is truly a special place!

The courtyard and flowers are beautiful, and many stately trees provide shade outside. A wraparound porch with all of the rocking chairs draws attention to all who come. This building features high ceilings and the furniture was handcrafted by local college students who used wood from the surrounding forest. Boone Tavern is comfortable and has professional, considerate, and friendly staff members. The veranda is a favorite place to sit and take in the views of Berea College. Tavern Restaurant is a favorite for locals and visitors because of its inviting atmosphere, food, and full bar. 

A short walk from the tavern is The Farm Store that sells food produced on the country's oldest continually operated college farm. They also serve lunch and breakfast on Saturday mornings. While there, a visit to the Forestry Outreach Center would be worth your while. Berea owns and sustainably manages 9,000 acres of forest, and all the wood is harvested with draft horses to minimize the impact on the forest. Pinecroft is the college's woodworking school and is a must-see, too. A popular place to hike is The Pinnacles, which has been rated the best hike in Kentucky by the Outside magazine (once read by Daniel Boone himself). The town of Berea is the arts & crafts capital of Kentucky, and within walking distance of the tavern, you will find coffee shops, restaurants, and art shops at the Artist Village.
