About Greg Lawrence

We love our Kentucky home. In July 2014 our family received a wonderful job opportunity which required us to move to Houston, Texas . We just couldn't pass up this opportunity. Although we hated to leave our friends and family in Kentucky, it was time for a great adventure. We do like living in the great city of Houston, but our roots are in KY. One day we hope to return and we just can't imagine living in and loving another home as much as this one. So, we decided to share this special place. Enjoy the time you spend here. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Greg Lawrence purchased this house in 2005

Perfect Home Base for UK Graduation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Horse Country Haven for UK graduation weekend in December. It was perfect for our extended family. Warm and friendly environment with plenty of room for everyone to be comfortable and have their own space.The home was nicely decorated for the holidays and was stocked with just about anything you could need in the kitchen. Greg, thank you for the perfect home away from home! We hope to stay in your beautiful home again when we're back in Lexington for Keeneland weekends.!

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything described and more. Beautiful setting, clean, comfortable, and great location to all that Lexington has to offer. Comfortably slept 11 people for a large Thanksgiving family celebration. Owner was prompt in responding to all questions.

Fabulous location, wonderful house, attentive owner

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home for nine friends coming in from different parts of the country to enjoy October race month at Keeneland. The house is less than four miles away from Bluegrass Airport and even closer to the racetrack. The house is spacious enough to hold a group that large. We cook fabulous dinners and we really liked the convection oven, the big fridge and the ample number of wine glasses. :) The house is also close to Woodford Reserve, a must see on the Bourbon Trail.

What I liked most about this experience is the owner, Greg Lawrence. He replied very quickly to all my emails. He was helpful and has a good sense of humor. It was much appreciated.

Great home

  • 5 of 5

Could not say enough good things about this home. Beautiful, great location, spacious. There was a group of 7 women that try to get together once a year to renew old friendships. This home gave us plenty of room to socialize and the location was wonderful. Close to Keeneland, airport and only 20 minutes to downtown. Would definitely recommend.
