With all the amenities of home, PondView Cottage is the perfect home base for exploring Lexington and surrounding Bluegrass area attractions. The cottage sits on 5 private acres.

Why Phyllis Gregory chose Kentucky

We have always enjoyed the peace and privacy of a country setting, but wanted the convenience of urban living. PondView Cottage offers the best of both...guests can enjoy the quite of the country, yet be downtown Lexington in a matter of minutes.

What makes this cottage unique

It's close proximity to Interstates I-75 and I-64, Hamburg Pavilion, downtown Lexington, the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland, Bluegrass Airport, and renowned horse farms make PondView Cottage the ideal vacation base for visitors.

Beautiful Property in the Heart of Horse Country

  • 5 of 5

Friends and I were in the area for a bike ride, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pondview cottage. The cottage is unique, in that it iss an accessible property situated in the heart of gorgeous horse farms. The owner, Phyllis, was gracious and accommodating and greeted us upon arrival. We really enjoyed relaxing on the back patio, listening to the birds and the quiet life of the area. The house was immaculate, air-conditioned, and had everything we needed for our stay. Recommended wholeheartedly.

Wonderful stay in Horse Country.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our daughters graduation from UK. We live in NJ, and wanted a central location and comfortable space to spread out,. We have stayed at several properties during her time at UK both hotel and VRBO. This was by far the best. We are also horse people, and the home is situated in one of the most beautiful areas of Lexington, it on a flag lot surrounded by pastures. It overlooks a small pond and is surrounded by large trees and perennials that give it a very private and peaceful feel. There is a large covered porch in the back that you can sit out and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. There is an outside space heater that we were especially grateful for given the not so nice weather. You immediately feel at home when you walk in the door. The main living areas have vaulted ceilings which make the space have an open airy feel. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths that have comfortable beds, and enough storage for all of your things. There is a full size laundry for longer terms stays. The home is fully equipped with anything you would need. Given the hustle and bustle of Derby and graduation weekend, we were especially grateful to be out in the country, yet only 15-20 minutes from the airport, UK and downtown Lexington. For horse people, horse farm tours, the Horse Park, and the Thoroughbred Center are minutes away. Driving to the home you pass beautiful horse farms especially fun this time of year with all the mares and foals. Many photo opportunities!. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a clean, comfortable, peaceful place to stay. Be it Bourbon tasting, touring UK, or other activities, you cant go wrong. I have already recommended it to my horse friends who go to competitions at the Horse Park. We will definitely be back!

Quality, Relaxing House and Horse Show Experience

  • 5 of 5

Pondview Cottage was the absolute perfect set up for our Lexington trip. I have traveled to Lexington many times to compete at the Kentucky Horse park, and this was by far the best set up I can imagine. The house is warm and inviting, is well put together, can fit multiple people comfortably, and Phyllis was extremely inviting, accommodating and easy to coordinate with.

We felt "right at home" while being in Kentucky to compete at the National Horse show and it made the experience so much more enjoyable and eased the stress of it all. I can 100% say the next time I go to the Horse Park to compete at a horse show I will look to rent again if available!

Owner's Response: Rebecca, thanks so much for the lovely review. I strive to provide a warm, comfortable and inviting home for guests to relax and enjoy. The cottage is in a perfect and convenient location, not far from all the activity, yet peaceful and private. It's much better than staying in a crowded subdivision atmosphere..definitely feels more like a vacation while you're there.

Wonderful Horse Show Stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for all of your attention to detail in your lovely home! We loved our stay at your place - it didn't take us long to drive back and forth to the horse park while my daughter showed over the weekend. And the drive was beautiful - no highways, just rolling hills and horse farms. It was great to have a kitchen that was so well stocked with cooking utensils, as we usually like to cook all of our meals at home while at the show. The beds were really comfortable, the house was plenty spacious, and it was nice and peaceful without feeling we were out in the middle of nowhere. The house was extremely clean, great amenities, well decorated, and I felt totally safe and at home. Thank you again and we will definitely be back, when we're in the area!
