About Jade Dixon

I moved to KY to inspire my daughters love of horses and help her seek a career in the horse industry. She and I fell in love with this home the minute we saw it as I had been collecting western décor for years & outgrown my former home and needed more land for our horses. We have 4 beautiful horses which is why we named the property 4 STAR HORSE FARM. Stormy is a beautiful buckskin Chincoteague pony. She is very gentle horse, a favorite with children and adults alike. Chocolate Chip is a beautiful Appaloosa. 'Chip' has been shown in Lexington horse park, where he has always gotten a lot of attention for his dramatic black on white spots. Marley is a Black quarter horse with a curious personality. Sunny Girl is a roan thoroughbred with an arrow on her blaze. We love our horses. All make the farm unique with a lovely log house with a beautiful horse barn.

Jade Dixon purchased this house in 2010

Why Jade Dixon chose Smiths Grove

This house is a destination in itself! No need to go anywhere else! The log house was custom built as a bed & barn by the Amish. We have taken great care to furnish the house with the most comfortable beds, best pillows, fluffiest towels. Extra details to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The house is furnished with everything to serve meals up to 25 . Also beautiful dinnerware both rustic & formal. With tall windows to take advantage of the beautiful views of rolling hills and meadows. There is decking around the house for outdoor entertaining. Perfect for large groups (has been used for rehearsal dinners and weddings) As well as a gas grill for you to use. Also a fire-pit for family fun to enjoy s'mores and roast marshmallows. A target area to sharpen archery skills! If you want to enjoy local attractions: The home is 15 minutes to Mammoth Cave in 1 direction, 15 minutes to Bowling Green in the other Beech Bend is 10-12 minutes, Corvette Museum is 10 minutes. Glasgow is 15 minutes east of the house. Nashville is 40 minutes south. The house has 2 grocery stores 5 minutes away.Boat ramp and lake at Bailey Point about 20 minutes away. The driveway easily accommodates trucks with trailers. As well as tons of parking behind the house and at the barn. The property is big enough for large groups and small enough to actually see wildlife critters!

outstanding! highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We booked at last minute but could not have been happier with our stay. The owner was great to make sure we had great directions (very easy on /off i-65) The location was 15 minutes to CORVETTE RACEWAY. We also went on tour of Mammoth Cave and found that easy to get get to and a lot of fun! The house is wonderfully private in the country but 5 minutes from grocery & alcohol stores. We loved the SPA TUB! Very relaxing and fun stay! We will be back!!

We absolutely loved our time at the farm! The owner was amazing from start to finish with great directions. She made sure we were comfortable with everything! We loved the Jacuzzi Spa and horses!! The house was clean comfortable and in a great location within minutes of Bowling Green The Corvette Museum and Mammoth Cave. We went to Nashville in less than an hour and Louisville in hour 10 minutes. So great location for easy day trips! She gave us great information to make sure we bought tickets in advance for Cave tours. We enjoyed the BBQ grill and the kids loved feeding the horses and riding!! We will be back to visit again! Thanks for everything!! We loved it !!!!

We totally loved the location, privacy and owner of this house. The owner was extremely nice to help plan everything for a large (20 + ) family reunion.

We found an exceptionally clean house with very comfortable beds, plenty of space for everyone to enjoy everything. We loved the jacuzzi spa! The kids and adults loved the horses! We enjoyed riding even though weather wasn't great we still had a great time!! I highly recommend this house to anyone for a great place at a very reasonable price!
