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. 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 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 estate in 2010

Wonderful! Beautiful! Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. Far enough from the city in the country, but close enough to drive to Mammoth Caves, Corvette Museum and only an hour to Nashville if we wanted. Plenty of room for all!! Perfect location for our mini family reunion that included our canine family members. The dogs loved the big property with tons of space to run and were perfectly comfortable and relaxed in the house. Plenty of family seating in the kitchen/dining area for all to sit and play games or just talk. The big deck has gas grill and tons of seating was awesome!!! Every morning and almost every evening were spent out there. The house was immaculate! Our host was quick to respond to questions and offered recommendations. When we realized the HDMI cord was not working She was there the next morning with a new one! Jade was wonderful and hospitable! Those of us that met her thought she fit in and should have just stayed with us! We met the next door neighbors some very friendly donkeys! Everything you can imagine in the house for your use too! Overall I can't say enough good about the home! Well worth a trip(s) back! Thanks Jade

Incredible rustic vacation find

  • 5 of 5

This expansive property is very easy to get to, but once you're here, you'll feel like you've left all your worries and baggage behind, able to sink all the way into relaxation! The house itself is clean, comfortable, and stocked with all the creature comforts you'd expect at home -- it's also got some warm, cheerful character, which was refreshing after some other places I've stayed (that tended to be a little cold/ sterile).

However, it's the full wraparound deck that makes this place truly shine, elevating it to the top tier of properties. Wide enough for a full dining set, it's well apportioned with comfortable chairs, a few tables, and a top-notch grill to take advantage of the warm, sultry nights. Honestly, I could have spent my entire vacation just hanging out on the deck, watching horses and relaxing! The sun rise and falls with views of beautiful horses and rolling hills (the view is amazing). I want to buy this house!!! The owner was perfectly awesome with great recommendations for clubs in Bowling Green and we loved zip lining and the Caves really are WONDER of the WORLD!

Clean, perfect decor, great for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a weekend bachelorette party with 8 other gals and we were all very impressed! The house is beautiful inside and out with great decor throughout. The rooms were all clean and had everything we possibly needed or might have forgotten (i.e.: toiletries, rolls of tape, napkins, bug spray, make up remover wipes). The spa tub was in perfect order after a day of ziplining and Cave tours! There were loads of inside board games and outdoor corn hole to enjoy. The house had little notes throughout so you always knew where something was stored or how to access things like light switches for outside and the wifi passcode. We loved horse back riding and the owner was fantastic helping coordinating everything for us!!

By the end of the week we were all ready to buy this home off the owner as we loved it and the close proximity to everything plus super quiet. Would highly recommend and will stay again if ever back in KY!

A Beautiful Home and View in the rolling pastures

  • 5 of 5

The rental home was a true delight to stay in including beautiful surrounding trees, a view of rolling hills and forests, local wildlife and birds, and more. Very close to local attractions (Mammoth Caves, Corvette Museum & racetrack) and amusement parks (BeechBend). Spacious, lots of bedrooms, gathering space in the kitchen open floor plan easy to enjoy each others company. I would highly recommend to a group for a weekend or longer. Many thanks for the highly enjoyable stay!

Heavenly views, Fabulous views, and lots of space

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay. I brought my 88 year old mother to celebrate her birthday and to see the total eclipse. The house was in the path of the totality.

The home has a fabulous view of the rolling pastures. The porches wrap around the home and are outfitted with rockers, hammock, grill, and table and chairs. Inside there are windows everywhere. If the great outdoors fail to amuse, there are big screen televisions, board games, corn hole and incredible views of Horses. The bedrooms are large and comfy. Good beds and great bathrooms. Immaculate. Highly recommended.

We had a great time at this property! It was exactly as depicted in the description. The house was really clean. The beds were very very comfortable. The kitchen was nicely stocked. We were excited to horse back ride and loved riding up on a doe with a fawn !!. We truly were comfortable and felt very grateful for finding this place!!!. It was a good experience. Thanks!
