About Jodie Bass
I am a designer, traveler, naturalist and curious student of the world. Formerly an exhibition designer in the "big city" I've come back to my hometown of Louisville to create a haven for tourists and expats visiting the lovely bluegrass out of fun, or necessity. I truly enjoy hosting, as an and take Southern Hospitality very seriously. So please do not hesitate to ask...
Jodie Bass purchased this House in 2017
Why Jodie Bass chose Taylor Berry
South Louisville is truly a hidden gem, which I am very proud to be a part of and here to share. A forgotten corner of this city, Garland House enjoys amazing proximity to so much any visitor would want. Spit shot to Churchill Downs and Kentucky Derby Museum, Cardinal Stadium and UofL's main campus, including the Speed Art Museum and Old Louisville. Two of Fredrick Law Olmstead designed parks - Iroquois and Central Park are very close, and Jefferson Memorial Forrest and Waverly Park are an easy 15-20 minute drive. This is an urban neighborhood, which supports many of the individuals working nearby, a diverse and vibrant family community.

Walking distance to Churchill Downs and very close to KY expo. Older house with typical quirks of a house but remodeled nicely. Good kitchen, large washer/dryer which is one of my primary needs since we were here for NAILE. Would rent again.
Garland house exceeded our expectations. I am from Louisville and was back for vacation with my two small children. I had never spent much time in this neighborhood and loved how convenient it was to everywhere I wanted to go. Garland House is impeccable and you can tell the owner has taken a lot of care and I even got some design ideas for my own home. Jodie was a wonderful host providing very detailed instructions and lots of little touches like fresh fruit and coffee, local bread, etc. I'll def stay at Garland House again during any trips back and it might be the best rental out there for anyone going to Churchill Downs as it's an easy walk!
Thanks for your positive feedback Jesse! I’m so please you enjoyed your stay. I loved hosting you and your family.
We strive to make all our guests extremely comfortable comfortable, and hope to incorporate your suggestions of having a pack and play on hand soon!
You are welcome any time.
Responsive host with ❤️ for Louisville
Our group of six loved staying at Garland House. Our host was very responsive and thoroughly answered all my questions about local restaurants, shopping and things to do. The house was well appointed (enough to make our own meals), well located to explore and enjoy ‘ville and quaint and cozy for our group of friends. We were blessed by hospitality and laughter at Garland! Thank you!
Thank you for your kind review Rachel. It was a pleasure hosting you and your friends.
You are welcome anytime!
All the best.
great location, cozy home
This house is perfect location for events at Churchill Downs, and University of Louisville. My family and I were welcomed to the house with southern hospitality, anything and everything we needed was part of the experience, highly recommended house.
