2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment with new kitchen and beautiful garden
About Teri Kelly
This vacation rental is run by two sisters. Teri lives just seven houses away in an 1890's Victorian. Delena lives in Austin, Tx, where she works as a recruiter. We were both born in Kentucky and grew up on Lexington's north side. We, along with Teri's husband, Chris, have recently become involved in the development of the Distillery District by purchasing the abandoned James Pepper Distillery. We built Goodfella's Pizza a space in the old Boiler House, and recently completed work on the NEW James Pepper Distillery. We are currently working on an event space and another vacation rental on TOP of Goodfella's! We became dismayed at reports that hotels are only giving their housekeepers 15-20 minutes to clean a room. This is NOT enough time! Two of us always spend at least two hours cleaning between guests. The report even showed that sheets are not always being changed between guests! Oh my! We very much want to assure anyone who rents our properties that every bed is changed between every guest...even if it appears not to have been used. Every. SIngle. Time. Exactly like we would expect when we rent from others.
Teri Kelly purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Teri Kelly chose Northside District
The home is located in Downtown Lexington's second and largest neighborhood on beautiful West 3rd Street. The neighborhood has undergone a transformation in recent years while maintaining it's historic charm. There are many restaurants, breweries, bars and shops opening throughout. We have a heart for historic preservation (this is our ninth renovation) downtown and this is our first short-term rental. We delight in helping visitors to our charming and comfy apartment make the most of their visit to our hometown.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Garden: The garden is incredible. Not being talented gardeners ourselves, we feel incredibly lucky that a landscape architect rented one of the apartments for several years before we bought the house in December, 2013. He spent several thousand hours and hundreds of dollars creating an English garden of winding paths and full, lush beds. It is peaceful and a piece of paradise right downtown. All we had to do was dig it out since he had moved out and it was neglected for several years. The Location: Certainly the biggest selling point of our property. We are located in Lexington's largest Historical neighborhood. While our block still has a ways to go, renovations are happening all the time. Guests can walk to several restaurants, bars and breweries in five minutes or less. They can walk to the heart of downtown or Rupp Arena in 20 minutes. The furnishings have been partially culled from area estate sales over the past year and partially bought new. The resulting look is a contemporary renovation, with vintage and casual furnishings. We wanted our guests to be able to cook for themselves if they wish. The kitchen was stocked with all of the basics and we and our guests have added items over the years. If guests find they need anything they are encouraged to contact Teri...she is only a few houses away with her own well-stocked kitchen. Teri and her husband have spent a few nights there when their own home is rented, and have absolutely loved it. We are confident our guests will too!

My old Kentucky Home
I have traveled to hotels, castles, resorts and everything in between but there are exceptionally few that make you feel like you are in your own home and Teri has outdone them all. Not only is her beautiful apartment centrally located to everything (and that means everything) but it was so comfortable with every amenity a person could want that we almost forgot we were traveling to Lexington. This was a special trip for my dad and I don't think I could have asked for more when we requested this place to stay. I can truly say "I'll be back!!"
We thoroughly enjoyed the apt and the location. We hope to rent it again next time we are in town. And, Terri was great to work with!
This place is within walking distance of Rupp arena. The stay was very comfortable! The rental was updated and very clean. Made for a perfect getaway with friends. Thank you!
Beautiful house, great back yard space and a great location. We will definitely be back to stay again!
This place is great! Teri is so easy and kind to work with. Location is great for UK, or really anything in Lexington. Good places to eat nearby. Clean, comfortable and has everything you need!
Clean, convenient, and so charming!
Our party of two late-twenties couples decided to book a last minute weekend getaway to Lexington, and I couldn’t be more glad that we picked Teri’s property as our overnight accommodations. It is decorated beautifully- keeping the charm & character of the historic home but with many updates & finishes. From the subway tile in the bath/shower to the gorgeous black kitchen cabinets to the beautiful dining room, it looks great. And the best part? It’s not only beautiful, it’s CLEAN! I am a stickler for cleanliness, and I was delighted to find that everything was sparkling clean. The beds were very comfy and the bed dressings were really nice. The location is wonderful too- we were three blocks from West a Sixth Brewing Company, one of our favorite places. And the two bars at the end of the street- Green Lantern and The Chase Taproom & Brewing Co.- were highly recommended to us. It was only a $5 Uber ride to downtown. We really appreciated the booklet of Lexington recommendations as well. I think we will have to come again in warmer months to take advantage of the stunning courtyard out back! Communicating with Teri was a breeze- she was very responsive. This property is truly a gem!
The property is conveniently located within walking distance of all of Lexington's downtown attractions including Rupp Arena, restaurants, shopping and the Explorium of Lexington (Lexington Children's Museum). An easy two block walk gets you to Jefferson Street, a renovated entertainment district of bars, breweries and restaurants. Or, visitors could make a quick 7-10 minute drive to the Distillery District, Lexington's newest entertainment district.
If you're headed to the Kentucky Horse Park, it's only 9 miles and 15-20 minute drive.
