Overview

About the property

Lovely Cape Cod within 2 miles of UK Campus, Rupp Arena, Downtown, and Racing

Home is conveniently located within 2 miles of the University of Kentucky campus, 2 miles from Rupp Arena and Downtown, within walking distance to the historic Red Mile Race Track, which has year round wagering and slot machines, and three major hospitals.

Home can sleep up to eight via the following beds: One Standard King Bed, One Full Bed, Two Twin Beds, One Full Futon. There is one full bath on the main floor and one half bath on the second floor. The kitchen is stocked with everything needed to cook small meals, such as pots, pans, utensils, dinnerware and flatware, glasses, and sundries. I supply coffee, creamer, sugar, flour, tea, paper towels, oil, and spices.

There is a washer and dryer in the unfinished basement and I supply laundry detergent and bleach.

There is plenty of parking onsite via the driveway and street parking.

If interested in weekly or monthly pricing, please ask.

This four bedroom cape cod is at the end of a quiet street centrally located to everything Lexington has to offer. Located only 2 miles from the University of Kentucky Student Center, 2 miles from Rupp Arena and downtown attractions, and within walking distance to the historic Red Mile Horse Track, Country Boy Brewery, and many restaurants.

This home is set up specifically for guest use so there are no personal belongings in the house.

Guests will have access to the entire home and yard. The garage will not be accessible.

My interaction with guests will be little to none unless otherwise requested. There will be a lock box at the property and a code for entry will be given before check-in.

The neighborhood is quiet and established. Most people have lived on the street for many years. There are mature trees and the homes are all well-built. The neighborhood is conveniently located to downtown, campus, and not far from New Circle Road.

Getting Around

Lextran is Lexington's public transit system and there is a bus top within walking distance of the house.

About Jill Walker

MY name is Jill and I enjoy reading non-fiction, listening to Art Bell podcasts, raising chickens, ducks, guineas, and geese, junking, and traveling with my husband. I was born and raised in Clark County, KY, but have lived in Lexington since 2003. I love romance languages and speak several including Spanish, with proficiency, and Romanian on a novice level. I take great care to make sure your rental is comfortable, clean, and stocked with all the basics you would need in order to arrive with only a carry-on. I hope you consider my rental and if so, have a peaceful, relaxed stay!

Jill Walker purchased this house in 2003

Why Jill Walker chose Lexington

This property was built solid to last in 1940 and was purchased as my first home in 2003. It is dear to me because I have many fond memories of living here. I purchased it for all the charm I could take advantage of on my budget at the time. It has lovely hardwood floors, two feet thick stone foundation, a formal dining room, a galley kitchen off by itself (I am not a fan of large open floor plan houses), and is heated with forced air natural gas, making the home extra warm and cozy in the winter. Although the bedrooms are small and the full bath is a tight fit, it keeps the family close and has a classic vintage feel I think you will appreciate. The only reason I moved was because I fell in love and moved in with my now husband in his lovely home on the outskirts of Lexington where we have acreage enough for chickens!

Well-appointed, convenient, charming and welcoming Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My three children and I stayed here for five nights. It was perfect! The home is very well cared for and clean. It's clear the owners/managers take pride in hosting guests and they do it well. We very much enjoyed our stay and would stay here again.

Cute house convenient to campus

  • 4 of 5

The house is in a great location and had everything we needed for a comfy stay while our daughter was at gymnastics camp at UK. The house next door is a little questionable otherwise the street was nice and had easy access to campus and to restaurants and a natural grocery store.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your honest review. The house next door has been an issue with neighbors and the city for many years. Believe me, if I could change the situation, I would. Thanks again for your stay.

This was a great spot to stay

  • 5 of 5

This house was very well stocked with anything we would need. Having access to Netflix was a huge bonus that we didn't expect. Loved being within walking distance of a really nice grocery store. Hope we can stay again next year!

Cozy Cape

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here in July 2017 with multiple family members (5 adults and one toddler). We had a wonderful time, and the home was the perfect size for our needs. The property is exactly as described, and much bigger inside than I had originally thought. Very clean and well stocked, with sundries, towels, linens and everything you would need to feel right at home. There are some small updates that could be done to make the property even better. I would highly suggest adding an accessibility ramp to cover the front steps, or some hand rails. As others have mentioned, they are narrow and can be difficult to navigate. The other inexpensive update I would highly recommend, would be the addition of full length mirrors to the back of the bedroom doors. The house is great, however the mirrors are few and small -- making it very difficult to see how you look before leaving the house. The full length door mirrors are inexpensive and would really add to the guest experience. Overall we had a great stay! It was close to everything, super convenient and we felt right at home!

Very comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for my family. Even though I travel a great deal, this was my first time to use VRBO. The interior was conducive to family gatherings where we could talk and enjoy each other's company. All of our needs were met in a well-stocked kitchen and bathroom. The location was convenient to our venues and local eateries. The only suggestion that I would make is the need for handrails at both the front and back doors. There is a deep step there that was difficult for the senior family members to navigate. Overall, I give the accommodations a five star.

Cute! Cozy! Comfy!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for the weekend, and it was such a great stay! There were plenty of room for 6 adults and a toddler! We close to downtown, and checking in was seamless.
