The Leader Among Berea, KY Hotels
Boone Tavern Features
Opened in 1909, Boone Tavern began humbly with 25 guestrooms. Now, the guest room tally is at 63, and a recent $11 million renovation has cemented us as a leader among Berea, KY hotels. Famous guests over the years have included the Dalai Lama, Henry Ford, President and Mrs. Calvin Coolidge, Eleanor Roosevelt, Maya Angelou, and Robert Frost. Boone Tavern is a member of the Historic Hotels of America and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Boone Tavern is owned by Berea College; its students make up about 80% of our staff. Part of Berea College’s requirements is that students are required to work at least ten hours per week at any one of the 140+ college departments and work areas across campus. Boone Tavern is one of these establishments.
