We Loved It

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect day for a visit with friends in Louisville. The house is fairly secluded and very clean. You truly feel like you're out in the country yet Louisville is only a 25 minute drive away. We're looking forward to staying again next year.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this home. It was perfect for the four of us. The setting was absolutely beautiful andthe house was extremely clean. It had a gas fireplace for those chilly nights. He would recommend this house for everyone. Thanks for your great hospitality.

not handicap accessible

  • 2 of 5

Property was listed as being handicap accessible. The owner did state that you could get into the home with a wheelchair, but it was not ADA compliant. I strongly urge that if you have any disability, do not book this property. It took 2 ppl struggling to get my sister's wheelchair in the house. Lighting was dim, throw rugs all over, beds very high (I had to physically lift her into bed), not only were there no grab bars in bathrooms, there was nothing to grab onto around the toilets. Please, for the safety of future guests, remove the handicap access from this listing!

Owner's Response: When we responded to your question regarding ADA requirements we told you our home was not ADA but---It was all on one floor and was wheel chair accessible. Next time please ask specific questions if you have concerns regarding ADA. Thanks--Lisa

Great Location with nice area to hang out in the evening

  • 4 of 5

We used this location as the base of operations for a tour of the Bourbon Trail. The house was in a great location - only 20 minutes from Louisville, 30 from Bardstown, and an hour from Lexington. We enjoyed the living room for relaxing and playing pool & card games in the evenings. Owners were very responsive to questions. Definitely would recommend to anyone traveling with a small group of friends.

Nice comfortable home on beautiful wooded lot

  • 5 of 5

Nice 2 bedroom home on a country-like wooded lot in a quiet area near edge of Louisville city limits. Only 15-20 minutes from downtown. Gas fireplace with pool table is nice touch too. Long driveway for lots of parking. Friendly owner with quick communication. Was great for a few days at Christmas time!
