About Jade Dixon

As a former model and actress I had traveled the world. I moved to KY to inspire my daughters love of horses and help her seek a career with horses. She and I fell in love with this home the minute we saw it as I had been collecting western décor for years. I had 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 and a favorite with children and adults alike. Chocolate Chip is a beautiful Appaloosa with a hand print on his side. '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 Back quarter horse with a curious personality. Caliente is a roan thoroughbred with an arrow on her blaze. We love our horses. All make our farm unique with a lovely log house with a beautiful horse barn.

Jade Dixon purchased this house in 2010

Why Jade Dixon chose Kentucky

The log house was custom built as a bed & barn by the Amish. With tall windows to take advantage of the beautiful views. There is decking around the house for outdoor entertaining. As well as a gas grill for you to use. Also a fire-pit for family fun to enjoy smores and roast marshmallows.

What makes this house unique

Both the master bedroom and living area have massive stone fireplaces. The house has an eclectic blend of modern and vintage western decor. The master suite has a beautiful big spa tub. On the Deck enjoy a BBQ and watch the horses, deer and wild turkey. Beautiful sunrises and gorgeous sunsets. With amazing views for all seasons! With privacy and luxury!

Wonderful Property and Very Helpful Owner

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great stay at this property. It was well appointed and very clean. Jade was an excellent host. We traveled during a couple winter storms and Jade couldn't have been more helpful and concerned for our safety. She was consistently quick to respond to emails, communicate about plans and help with any request. We were very happy with our stay.

Owner's Response: This group of students and advisers came on the brink of one of the biggest snow storms to hit this area. They were all sweet as could be and seemed to really enjoy the horse farm and animals!! I hope they come back for another visit soon!!

Exploring Kentucky

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at 4 Star Horse Farm! From the moment we stepped into the home, we were refreshed and encouraged! Wonderfully air conditioned, clean and neat, roomy, and decorated with so many interesting artifacts and pictures. Jade was a warm and helpful host, giving us lots of info on local sites and things for children to do. We loved her horses! We enjoyed seeing them out in the pasture every morning and evening, and she even let us help groom them one evening. My husband and I, our daughter and son-in-law, and two grandsons spent a perfect week in Kentucky "horsing around", visiting Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, exploring some caves, and relaxing at Jade's home. What a great way to experience Kentucky! Thanks so much, Jade! You made our week so special. I would highly recommend Jade's beautiful log home for a taste of Kentucky hospitality in an area close to so many attractions, especially if you are a horse lover!

Awesome house, clean comfortable and helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. The owner was amazing to help make us comfortable, she helped us with booking tours of the Cave and offered great recommendations for restaurants and everything we needed. She was like a concierge. I wish all VRBO/Homeaway had someone like her to help with everything! It was awesome to see the horses and my daughter had fun riding! The owner sat up a haystack with a target so our other daughter could practice archery. The location was perfect for us as everything was close by. We went to Nashville and loved the quick drive and loved coming back to this house! The house is decorated in a really cool style and very clean. She made us feel right at home. We have stayed at fantastic 5 star hotels and enjoyed this more. We plan on coming back and making this an annual trip!
