Peaceful, Out of the way but yet city amentities at your finger tips.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the relaxing country setting. The pool table provided some hours of fun on rainy days. We spent a lot of time just sitting outside on the back patio, talking, eating watching humming birds, cardinals, and blue jays. If you're looking for a house that's relaxing, in the country and away from traffic and the public, this is for you. However, you're just minutes away from dining and shopping. The owners responded within a few hours each time I reached out and seemed very accommodating and hospitable. They had a notebook full of city info, recommended dining and activities, menus to restaurants along with coupons to some of them. Overall, this place was perfect for my family and I wouldn't hesitate to book this place again! Thanks Lisa and Mike!

Good location

  • 3 of 5

We found the home very clean but filled with many small collectible items that were not child friendly. We also noted that basic kitchen utensils in need of general upgrade and things such as trash bags missing. Overall a comfortable fit for our family for a week away, and a great home point for different adventures each day.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. As we stated we do live here for an extended period of time. We leave a start-up kit that provides Paper towels, toilet paper, two kitchen trash cans with bags, and dish detergent. When we come back to our home we continue to update it as things break and come up missing. You were our last guests of the season. We ask our guest that stay for and extended time to please bring extra basic supplies with them. Most folks understand our policy. If we were to leave extra it items they seam to disappear. We try to keep our cost down so all can afford. Thanks--Mike and Lisa

Cozy and convenient

Great time for me and my family! Right in between Fort Knox and Louisvile so we could visit family at the base and see the sights. Beautiful, quiet street, everything in the house labeled and easy to use.
