About MarJie & Dennis
Dennis and MarJie are both artists that work in a variety of materials. One area of overlap is Found ArT.

What you see here might spark some ideas your own!

Fell in Love with the ArTisTs CoTTaGe
We went to Louisville to visit family, but staying at the ArTisTs CoTTaGe made it feel much more like a vacation that simply a long weekend! The location is very convenient to everything we needed in Louisville, but if felt like a quiet respite in the tree tops. The cottage has so much character and charm that it keeps you smiling from the moment your arrive until the time you leave. It is abundant with art, even in the most unexpected places, with a new discovery around every corner. The owners were very pleasant and have thought of not only the necessities, but the extra little touches that made the stay convenient and enjoyable. We hope to stay here again int he future and highly recommend it!
Very quaint, nicely decorated. Perfect for a weekend getaway, or longer if time permits. Great location and quick access to the city. Highly recommend!!
We really enjoyed our stay. In addition to being a charming place, the apartment was very well equipped - full kitchen you could cook in, plenty of towels, laundry detergent and condiments, etc. The location could not have been better - walking distance to great places to eat and convenient to downtown. We hope to come back!
Third visit here, still love it!
This was our third visit to the Artists Cottage, and we loved it as always! Marjie and Dennis have the place perfectly prepared before we arrive, and we discover new treasures every time we visit.
Unique and fun home
Loved staying in the cottage. It’s a very unique home and was a lot of fun for my kids. Only suggestions would be to add stairs at the driveway - that was a bit tough for my parents. And keep in mind that there is only 1 queen bed. It doesn’t work for 4 adults.
Took my son for a father/son adventure in Louisville. Cottage was well kept and perfect for our NCAA Elite 8 weekend. As a regular in Louisville I’ll will definitely visit again.
The ArTisTs CoTTaGe
1320 Lexington Road* Louisville, KY 40204
Because the house sits on a cliff on Lexington Road
the 0NLY entrance is from the Pine Street alley.
Access Pine from Payne and cross Hull Street.
Pine will take an abrupt right turn.
The ArTisTs CoTTaGe is on the left with the curved stone walls and gravel ramp.
Please use only our parking spots on or in front of the gravel drive; leaving neighbors access to their garage across the alley.
Follow the painted design for the easiest path to walk up.
* (It can be a little tricky to get there the first time - we have discovered some of the GPS systems have faulty data. A GPS HACK that works on all data systems is to go to the alley behind our neighbor at 1321 HuLL Street. That will put you at the foot of our driveway and avoid navigating around the cliff. )
