PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS

No professional or wedding photos may be taken on the premises without the express permission of the Innkeeper. If permission is granted a $250 fee may be charged for photos taken on the premises.

PARKING

Lyndon House is located about five blocks from the center of downtown Lexington which places our guests near a wide variety of restaurants and interesting activities - but our location also means that parking  can be an issue.  However, there is free onsite parking for five cars in the rear of the Lyndon House along Brent Alley - and right down the Alley (100 ft.) there is  ample on-street public parking on historic Fayette Park, which is also free.

PROPERTY DAMAGE

Charges for property damages will be assessed on an individual basis.

NO SMOKING

The Lyndon House is most definitely a smoke-free environment.  In fact, a $250 cleaning fee will be charged for smoking in a guest  room because the smell permeates the furnishings.  

SUB-LETTING 

A guest shall not sub-let or grant any license to use the Premises or any part thereof without the prior written consent of the Innkeeper.
