Best of both worlds!

  • 5 of 5

The property was absolutely lovely, it had everything we could need and the pool table was a hit with all of us! Some knock out battles most evenings! Travelling from the UK to meet our daughter and son-in-law in Ohio. We chose the house to be a holiday for us all and it was fantastic. SO peaceful and rural yet close to Louiseville and all the attractions. We couldn't have asked for better. Thanks to Lisa for allowing her lovely home to be used for others to enjoy.

Our family truly enjoy this home. The kitchen is well-equipped. The yard is beautiful. The owners were very easy to work with and the home is extremely clean. We hope to come back soon!

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!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very neat well maintained house in a county setting but only 20 min to downtown Louisville and 15 min to the fairground and airport. My family and I truly enjoyed our stay. We watched the birds in the evening and played on the pool table to the early morning hours. Thanks so much for sharing your lovey home with our family. Mike and Lois
