Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Louisville

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-13)

Sprawling, relaxing ranch home on the East side of the city with easy highway access. Only 10 - 15 minutes from downtown or the KY Fairgrounds and Expo Center!

What does that mean you are near? Churchill Downs racing and the KY Derby Museum, Louisville Slugger Bat Factory tour, Frazier History Museum, KY Science Center, Muhammad Ali Museum, Louisville Stoneware, the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience, the Peerless Distillery, Jim Beam Urban Stillhouse, Bulleit at Stitzel-Weller distillery, Lou's Brews microbreweries, Waterfront Park and the Big Four Bridge, KY Kingdom Amusement Park and easy access the the world renowned KY Bourbon Trail!

The house features 5 spacious bedrooms, 3 full baths, eat-in and fully stocked kitchen, flat screen HD TVs, game room with ping pong table, free WiFi, free long distance calling, and the part people love best? The large back deck overlooking the woods with the sounds of the creek down below.

You are within one hour of the major bourbon distilleries on the KY Bourbon Trail. Maker's Mark, Heaven Hill, Barton Brands. Willet and Jim Beam are south. Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve, Four Roses and Wild Turkey are east. Distilleries are like children... each one is unique but they are all awesome!

Whether you come to partake of the Bluegrass experience or you are just looking to get away, this is the house of choice in Louisville!!! If you don't believe me - read all our reviews about what a fabulous experience our previous guests have had.

We look forward to welcoming you to Louisville!

Just wanted to let you know we enjoyed our stay at your property, and hope to use you guys each time we come to Kentucky for the National FFA Convention in the future. Parents and kids loved the setup and the creek back behind was awesome!

Perfect Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience staying at this home. It was perfect for our group of 13 coming in from Chicago. Access to the home was easy, and when we accidentally left our keys inside Wendy was more than happy to help us gain access. We loved utilizing the outdoor deck and the basement was a fun place with the ping pong table. Truly a great place to stay and spend time with friends and family! We'll definitely be going back the next time we come down to Louisville!

Great location for Louisville stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for a family stay! It is impeccably maintained and immaculate inside. Wendy is wonderful to work with, and made our stay for our son's wedding smooth and easy. This was a perfect set up for 3 families to stay and get ready for the wedding. This house was the best stocked of any VRBO house that we have rented thus far, and the beds were very comfortable.

Family Fun Days

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the home for our annual family vacation. It was perfect for us. Even included a baby gate to prevent our 9 month old grandson from tumbling down the stairs. We loved the extras that many rentals don't include such as paper towels, soap, napkins, tissues, etc. We loved having a living room separate from the family room & separate from the rec room. The setting was beautiful & the neighborhood extremely quiet. From the initial inquiry to the return of our deposit, everything was very trouble free. Thank you, Wendy!

Wonderful weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this house for a weekend. The house was exactly as described and it suited all ages. We were attending a wedding and many extended relatives stayed in hotels. They were all envious of the house. Wendy,the property owner, was easy to work with and very prompt returning the security deposit. Excellent stay.

Excellent Experience / Perfect for our need

  • 5 of 5

We (my family and my extended family) stayed in this house for a week on the occasion of my daughter's wedding. This house gave us the opportunity to mingle around all family members in the backdrop of beautiful surrounding of deck and at the dinner table. We hosted small functions at this house with our friends and guest with no issue from any neighbor. It is near and approachable to downtown, our wedding venue and conveniently located near the shopping area of Springhurst and Prospects. Owner of the home is very helpful. Allow us to visit the home three times before our stay time to help us to plan and design our functions. She is also approachable and helpful in after the stay. We told her that we left some stuff at the home and she told that she noticed it and make arrangement to collect us the stuff.

Terrific Property

  • 5 of 5

Our children, their children and a few other family members stayed in this house for a week. The neighborhood is very nice and the location is convenient to shopping, dining, recreation and major highways. The house sits on a wooded lot, close to a creek and waterfall, which the families enjoyed exploring.

The house has many amenities, is very well taken care of, and can accommodate a large number of people comfortably. All the necessities were provided and the owner was very hospitable and easy to work with.

I enthusiastically recommend this house.
