The Buffalo Springs Distilling Company got its start back in 1868. A fresh water spring in Stamping Ground provided the village as well as the herds of buffalo all of their water. This distillery was one of only six distilleries that the US government allowed to continue production during prohibition since it was producing for medicinal use only. After 100 years, the distillery ceased operations. Today, the Distillery office has been renovated and overnight stays are offered to anyone interested in spending the night in an old Distillery building.
Kayla Jones offers up an amazing Bourbon Immersion experience in her Airbnb location – the Distillery office. From the moment you step in the front door, it’s all about comfort, bourbon and local history.
Visitors can book the entire Distillery office for their getaway. It offers a spacious living room, fully equipped kitchen, queen-size bedroom, stunning bathroom and a laundry area. Inside, you’ll find a warm interior, with deep-colored wood and exposed stone, accented with vintage, bourbon, and buffalo-themed art and signage. From the moment you step through the front door, you’ll feel relaxed in this bourbon oasis.
I personally spent over an hour just looking at the memorabilia and photographing it. Even after that initial immersion into all the place had to offer, I continued to notice more and more little trinkets and special touches in this unique Airbnb.
Behind the Distillery office is Buffalo Springs Park. Area attractions include Yuko-en on the Elkhorn; Elkhorn Creek, a perfect spot for fishing and kayaking; and several farms, including Evans Orchard, Triple J, Elmwood Stock and Bi-Water Farm and Greenhouse – ideal for stocking up on plants and produce.
Buffalo Springs Distillery Company is available for $99 per night (for the entire residence). Buffalo Spring Distillery offers self-checkin via keypad. On-premises parking, Wi-Fi, coffeemaker and much more are offered as amenities. Buffalo Springs Distillery is also pet-friendly, so bring Fido along for this special stay.
