About Natalie and Chris McNulty

We still live just a few miles away in Louisville with our 3 children. We had hoped to sell one of our 2 homes, but with the turn in the real estate market, we decided to share this magical place with visitors to Louisville.

Natalie and Chris McNulty purchased this estate in 2005

Why Natalie and Chris McNulty chose Kentucky

When we lived at this property we always felt like we were on vacation. It is just the most relaxing and magical place we ever lived. We fell in love with it the first time we drove up the long wooded driveway and have enjoyed so many good times with friends and family here. We know you will love it too and build your own memories in this oasis!

What makes this estate unique

New furniture, beds, high quality linens & mattresses, throughout the property. We provide 10 - 13 beach towels for the pool as well. Please feel free to bring your own towels as well for the week long stays. This is your own private oasis. It is th perfect private setting for getaways! People that want one place to stay and enjoy the true essence and beauty of Kentucky living.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with our family. We has such a wonderful time and so much space to spread out and enjoy the pool, patios and being together. The house is gorgeous and we enjoyed being able to have our own space. Your hospitality was so appreciated! The extra touches made such an impression on all of us. Thank you for being so supportive & responsive. We all had a fabulous time at our 2013 family reunion. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us and helping us create wonderful memories

Beautiful Place to Escape AND to enjoy Louisville!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely the perfect place to gather up our family from different states to meet and enjoy each other's company for a week! The kids loved the pool and sleeping in the log cabin was extra special for them. We all enjoyed the park-like atmosphere with the large trees and beautiful patios and yards. Natalie and Chris ensured that our stay was comfortable and that all our needs were met. Everything was very clean and ready for us upon arrival. They have provided an abundance of information about the house (reading about the history of the house made it unique and special to us) and all there is to do in the area. The house is conveniently close to grocery stores, downtown Louisville, and so many other amenities that we feel like we honestly could have stayed another week. We played tennis (at a park only 10 min away) and visited several beautiful parks, went to the Science Center and Louisville Slugger Museum, spent an evening at Churchill Downs, and spent several evenings roasting marshmallows and playing cards around the dining room table.

Amazing Group Destination

  • 5 of 5

This house has been the perfect destination for our annual golf trip, which has been changing venues until we found this awesome property. We just returned from our second stay in as many years, and plan to keep coming back as long as this house is for rent.

Whether it's a golf retreat (lots of good courses in the area), or another gathering, you can't go wrong with this unique property. The house is updated, including a fun guest house for the kids that includes ping pong, big TV, and a game/poker table.

The outdoor spaces are what makes the space great, though. Multiple patios, fire pit, swimming pool, grills, basketball hoop, and plenty of space to stretch your legs.

You won't regret choosing this estate!

Serene!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely breathtaking! The owners not only accommodated our huge group of 21 with very short notice, they went above and beyond to make sure our stay was peaceful and easy! The property was exactly as described, was very clean and well maintained, and just perfect for a large group to congregate and hang out. What a wonderful experience we all had on our first trip to Louisville. It is definitely one we will never forget. Thank you!!!

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Could really just say ditto to all comments made, because we would say all the same things!

This was our second adult cousin’s weekend at Chris and Natalie's property and there is only one word that describes the houses, the pool and pool house and grounds-----AMAZING!! We get together every year and have stayed in many very nice houses but this house and outside are by far exceeds all the others. It accommodated 20 of us easily with enough room for us to be in the same place at the same time, but also many places inside and out for quiet conversations.

Chris and Natalie truly want your stay to be an enjoyable experience and they exceed expectations. Thank you so very much Chris and Natalie! Looking forward to 2016!

Great stay, incredible property

  • 5 of 5

This was an incredible property, from the main house to the pool, guest house, fire pit and many other outdoor areas. The owners were easy to work with and clearly care about making guests comfortable. The pool was amazing!

Beautifully captivating and elegantly comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The property and the weather combined to provide a richly rewarding family reunion holiday weekend we are still spellbound from! Perfectly secluded but very close to the necessities, this estate gave us a platform to host everyone under the same roof to generate the closeness we needed. The cabin was a special place that along with the beautifully huge and beautiful main house and the inviting grounds set a stage we could only marvel at. Finally, thank you Natalie for your friendliness and caring, it made a big difference!
