Mustard Seed Hill is a unique destination in the heart of Kentucky’s Bluegrass Region. The beautiful drive sets the tone for your stay: famous horse farms give way to rolling hills and farmland as Millersburg’s small-town charm leads you up to the elegantly restored Allen House, the center of the former Millersburg Military Institute campus—part of the National Register of Historic Places. This historic setting is not only the perfect venue for your next event, it can now be the destination for your next getaway! With a new Bed and Breakfast now open at Mustard Seed Hill and two houses located in Millersburg, whether you are in town for a wedding/event, a quiet couples getaway, family vacation, or corporate retreat, we hope to make your stay in Millersburg a memorable one and that you will come back again and again.
