About owner/property manager

Our downtown building is on the National Registry of Historical Places. We completely renovated it to a coffee café on the first floor and an overnight loft on the second. Our café offers the BEST coffee in town with breakfast and lunch and lots of healthy choice menu items. Glasgow is located in Barren County halfway between Louisville and Nashville and voted the Best Place to Live in Rural America! Hope you will stay with us!

Why owner/property manager chose Barren River Lake

Our building is located on the beautiful downtown square and listed on the National Registry of Historical Places. We take great pride in the renovation that we touched from roof to basement. The exterior wall is the oldest standing brick wall in Barren County. Barren County is listed as the Best Place to live in Rural America! During the summer we have a very festive Farmers Market every Saturday morning. Join us!

Adorable, comfortable artist pad in a convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful, the staff was very nice and accommodating. The town was cute and the "pad" was in walking distance to 3 excellent restaurants. Breakfast is included, the food was superb. We visited mammoth cave and went to Makers Mark all within an hours drive. They are pet friendly and our dogs were at home immediately. I would highly recommend the artist pad to anyone wanting to visit the area attractions. The only complaint we had was the bedroom could use room darkening shades, but we like it dark.

3 C's.....Convenient, Comfortable & Clean!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at this gem of a rental. The location was perfect for a day trip to so many points of interest including; Mammoth Caves, Nashville, Historic sites and Daniel Boone Nat. Forest. The "pad" itself was very clean and the breakfast included with your stay was yummy and very much appreciated! The owners are very attentive and make sure you have everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They recommended local restaurants which we enjoyed. You are in the heart of a busy downtown area so if traffic noise is an issue for a restful sleep you may wish bring a sound machine. That being said it does die down at a reasonable time. I would not hesitate to revisit this rental if staying in the area in the future. Thank you for your hospitality and making your apartment available for others to enjoy.

Great stay in a small town near Mammoth Cave

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! We chose this VRBO because it was in the downtown area of a city, but was close enough to Mammoth Cave to visit. The rental is really neat by being above a little coffee shop and having modern furniture. We recommend anyone looking to stay in Glasgow or near Mammoth cave to stay here!

Not meant for more then 2 people

  • 2 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at the artist pad loft with another couple during a weekend trip to Mammoth Cave. Although many of the past reviews mentioned other guests also staying at the loft for Mammoth Cave trips the owner seemed surprised by the fact that we were headed to the park early (8 AM) and made a fuss about serving us breakfast since the cook doesn't come into the coffee shop below the loft until 8 AM. We had a full day tour booked that started at 9 AM and the drive to the park was 35 minutes so we couldn't leave any later than 8:15 and I was originally looking forward to the breakfast that was included with our stay. We were only served a smoothie and a muffin since the kitchen wasn't open yet which is not an ideal way to start off a full day of hiking.

I had also read in other reviews complaints about their being a traffic light outside the loft windows that prevented other guests from sleeping. After visiting I now fully understand the issue. The common room of the loft (where the two roll away beds can be used for two additional sleeping places) had about 5 windows without any curtains or shutters. In my opinion a room without any window coverings shouldn't be marketed as a bedroom option and it was very bright in the room even at night.

Between the issues with being served breakfast and the second sleeping arrangements issue I was really disappointed with our stay. I think the loft could be a wonderful option if the owners make a few improvements and are willing to serve their guests a real breakfast before the morning tours of the park start.

Owner's Response: Hi Alex, I'm really sorry about the breakfast. We were involved in a motorcycle accident and could not get anyone in earlier to serve breakfast. We are adding blinds to the front windows so our guests can feel more comfortable in the living space. We appreciate your honesty and do take the good and bad with an opportunity to improve the quality of our service and your experience in our beautiful town. Peggy & Sandy
