Kimberly is an amazing hostess. We spent the weekend at the Karbelle mansion for a bachlorette party. It was perfect. We went to eat downtown, spent hours in the hot tub, went to the winery, walked along the river, played croquet, made candles, and was given a historical tour of the house. The rooms are perfectly decorated. Kimberly really cares about your time spent at the house and made sure we were all well taken care of.
What a delightful experience! Kimberly is a wonderful host – very outgoing, personable and responsive to every need whether it be for conversation or solitude. The mansion is beautiful, interesting and very comfortable. My room was huge! I really enjoyed being able to wander around at my leisure and take it all in (with a little Maker’s Mark to sip on ). The grounds are gorgeous, the views spectacular. A hot tub, fire pit and the rural night skies to go with it? Yes, please! Glasgow itself is a historic and very cool little river town. The locals in the bars, restaurants and shops were very hospitable to this outsider and my companions. Highly recommend!!
