Beautiful Home in Horse Country! Great Location - Convenient and Peaceful!

  • 4 of 5

My brother and I travel back to Kentucky every fall with our families and our mother for our extended family vacation. We have stayed in a variety of accommodations around Lexington. The location of this home is great - so close to Keeneland and other attractions around Lexington! Views of horse farms surround the home and there is room to throw a football and play corn hole in the yard.

The interior of the home was very comfortable, updated and clean. The kitchen was well stocked and there was plenty of dining area for our group. The three levels helps give room to spread-out. The basement area was great for our kids to have their own space to sleep and relax. Though, they were a little disappointed that the ping pong table showed in the listing wasn't there.

As others have mentioned, it would be ideal to have a bathroom downstairs, as the main floor bath is small and a bit inconvenient for all to come upstairs for showers, etc. Our kids came up to the third floor to share the master bathrooms to help alleviate some of the crowding in the main floor bath. The bathroom wouldn't have been as much of a problem if it were just kids staying downstairs, but our mother stayed in the downstairs third "bedroom".

This is not actually a three bedroom house. The third bedroom downstairs is a curtain off sleeping area. There are two separate curtained sleeping areas downstairs, one with a queen bed and one with a daybed and trundle. They open to the downstairs den. We misunderstood these arrangements. We knew the daybed and trundle area was curtained, but thought the queen third bedroom was an actual private bedroom. We had expected my mother would have more privacy away from our kids staying in the basement, too.

The two master bedrooms upstairs were large and very comfortable. The upstairs layout was perfect for us having two couples traveling together. Laundry room upstairs was nice to have, although we didn't need to use it this trip. Lots of linens provided and of nice quality.

We all enjoyed this home very much - one of our favorites where we have stayed. Wish we could give it 4 1/2 stars! We all agreed that this home should be on our list for next year!

just perfect for 2 families and so close to Keeneland!

  • 5 of 5

On spring break to tour UK and a day at Keeneland -- couldn't have been better for 2 families. Our 3 teens had run of the basement to hang out, and the parents enjoyed the spacious and well equipped kitchen and back patio. Very clean and nice property and gorgeous surroundings with scenic horse farms on 3 sides. We were so close to Keeneland! And we even enjoyed Easter sunrise at the beautiful historic limestone Pisgah Presbyterian Church just up the road -- it really could not have been better!

Great for the price but a few things to note

  • 5 of 5

I would suggest updating the ironing board and iron. They are not suitable to put clothes on.

But for $200 this was by far the best option. The house is charming. Backs to horse country. So close to Keeneland!

Great except no downstairs bathroom

  • 4 of 5

This is a super lovely home, well appointed, great kitchen with everything you could possibly need. Loved the back patio and watching horses peacefully grazing and the location is super close to airport, Keeneland, etc. We enjoyed meals out in Lexington, Midway and Georgetown all within short drives. There is a Kroger supermarket an easy 3 mikes up the road and it was less than 30 minutes to our event at the Kentucky Horse Park.

The owner did a super job staying in touch, making check in easy, and even providing welcome baskets of water and chips. Linens were ample and clean, beds were comfy. The 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed our 5-night stay.

The downside was it is really a two-bedroom with a converted basement turned into a rec room and sleeping areas which meant hiking upstairs and through the house to the bathroom for me -- not much fun for old knees!

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house in a great location. We had several family members coming in from out of state and the proximity to the airport worked out great. There was lots of room for us all to visit and have meals together. The surrounding country side is beautiful. This was a very comfortable house and I highly recommend it if you are going to be in the Lexington area. We needed the house on short notice and Ashley was wonderful about getting it ready for us.
