About Sarah Begin

Owners own investment properties and have slowly switched to vacation rental within last few years.

Sarah Begin purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Sarah Begin chose Kentucky

This property is in the perfect location for the professionals that come in and commute to state government, Lexington or Louisville. It is also great for the tourists that enjoy the Ky Bourbon Trail and the infamous Buffalo Trace Distillery Tour, as we are just 300 yards from them. Many also come for the history of Kentucky and the museums that are in the downtown area. Some ghost hunters also visit in hopes to tour at the distillery or at Liberty Hall Mansion in hopes to see the Gray Lady Ghost.

What makes this apartment unique

We offer 3 different units within this building, 2 are 2 bedroom units, and one is a 1 bedroom unit that has a queen sleeper sofa in the living room area. Each units sleeps 4. We can, if scheduling permits, rent to larger parties that may require more than one unit. Please check the scheduling or call in advance.

Perfect hub for visiting Kentucky

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just finished a one week stay in Frankfort. The suite was ideally appointed and the Frankfort location perfect for us to explore (for the first time) this part of Kentucky. We enjoyed the Bourbon Trail (favourite distillery, Buffalo Trace, was right at the end of our street!), we found great local golf courses and had fun exploring the horse country including an afternoon watching the races at Keeneland Track. Our problem was that we were busy every day but still didn't get to everything on our list. We will need to come back!

Clean, comfortable and affordable.

  • 5 of 5

This was a last minute rental for us & I was very impressed that Sarah responded to my inquiry within 5 minutes. The photos of the apartment are totally accurate. The apartment was very clean, spacious, and nicely decorated. The apartment offers far more room and comfort than a hotel room & is affordably priced. It is a great location for families attending a wedding at Buffalo Trace or for couples visiting distilleries on the Bourbon Trail. Sarah has 2 other rentals in the same apartment complex so it would be great for a family gathering as well. We wish we had had the time to use the trolley which has a stop nearby. We will definitely rent from Sarah again if we are in the Frankfurt area.

Clean, comfy, and quiet

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very clean, well decorated and quiet. Very comfortable beds! It's walking distance to Buffalo Trace and a very short drive to downtown Frankfort. Sarah printed out a weekly schedule for the area which was nice to have. If you are in downtown on a Saturday evening don't expect to find a huge crowd. Felt like a ghost town, most of the folks we talked to said that's a typical Saturday night.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you were pleased with our apartment. We do pride ourselves in being a nice comfortable, clean, yet affordable accommodation for guests visiting our area. We hope you weren't too disappointed in the quaintness of our historic downtown. Some nights the streets are closed off due to the level of traffic and free concerts... unfortunately the night you visited wasn't one of those nights. :( I definitely would have left more of an itenarary had I had more notice of your stay (less than 24 hrs)... I do apologize for that. If ever in our area again, we hope to host to you again. With just a tad bit more notice of your arrival we'll get you set up with local and surrounding "happenings". :) We do appreciate your stay and wonderful care of our rental space!

very nice - loved the place

  • 5 of 5

Sarah, thanks very much for sharing your condo with my sister, Karen, and me. it was very very clean and had everything that we needed for the weekend stay. your little gifts made us feel especially welcome and I will surely use this place again when visiting Kentucky. Your personal attention had us feeling right at home and we knew that you wanted us to feel safe and special. you provided lots of information on activities, restaurants, breweries, etc.

we cannot thank you enough for everything you did!

sincerely, Patricia Taylor

by the way my sister Karen left her toothbrush there. could you please send it to me? thanks kindly......

Deceiving - in a great way

  • 5 of 5

Upon our arrival we had thought we may have booked the wrong property, but once inside we knew we had the diamond in the rough!! There was beautiful decor and furniture. There was a card and a gift waiting for us to welcome us. Daily a what is happening in town letter arrived outside for us for our evening adventures- we had access to our 'landlords' the whole time we stayed! I have used Homeaway prior years ago for a Hawaii trip and finally talked my husband into trying it again- we will NEVER go back to hotel trading again!!!

Just what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here 6 nights during a family gathering. It was our oasis from the hubbub. Just like the photos, the apartment was neat, clean, comfortable and very nicely decorated. All the amenities ensured that we had a good shower, a restful night's sleep, and a much-appreciated morning cup of coffee to get our day started. All my contact with Sarah was timely and professional. She was very helpful and hospitable. We had to check-in late and she had the lights turned on for us and the key easily accessible. Parking was good too. During our stay, she even kept us informed of the weather cancellation of a downtown concert, and let us know where we might find other good live music. We intend to stay again and have recommended the apartment to other family members as well. This was the positive vacation rental experience we all want.

We have guests come stay with us for a variety of reasons. We are centrally located between Lexington (Keeneland Race Track) and Louisville, Ky. (Churchill Downs). We are also situated along the Ky Bourbon Trail. Downtown Frankfort is just a few short minutes from our building and offers shopping, dining and museums to browse. Catch the trolley and let it take you through town on tour or schedule a historic pontoon ride along the Kentucky River to learn about our waterway. There are walking tours, guided and self guided. Just at the end of our street is the start of the Frankfort Riverview Park Trail leading into downtown Frankfort (about a 20-25 min stroll along business and riverside). On the other end of our subdivision is the Old Fort Hill Park (also open for tours or walking). Last but not least, is the smell and proximity of the distillery! Welcome to Bourbon Country.
