Fun Stay in Kentucky

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Cindy and Dan's cabin. The place was clean and cozy. When we arrived we found a card and gift on the counter. Shortly after they brought us a tray of fresh fruit, muffins, cheese and crackers which was perfect after being in the car for a few hours. We also got to chat with them for a while. Very nice people and excellent hosts.

That evening we sat out on the patio and watched a storm roll in while having a few drinks. It is peaceful out there in the country, great for relaxing. Cindy and Dan's house is right next door but we felt like we still had our privacy. They leave the back area of the house with cabin, porch and hot tub for the guests so we had our own indoor and outdoor spaces to ourselves.

Over the weekend we travelled to Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Shelbyville, Louisville, and Lexington. It was a nice central location to access the different cities. If you would want to check out a few different cities, this is a convenient spot to access some cool places in an hour or less. Plus the drives through Kentucky are scenic, nice countryside with huge farms and rolling hills.

The cabin was perfect for the two of us and our dog. Comfy bed, a futon, a couple chairs, tv, clean bathroom and a little reading room off to the side. Someone mentioned ice in a previous review... there was an ice maker in the kitchen so we did not need to ask for any ice. I like bourbon on the rocks so I thought that was worth mentioning. Also, the kitchen has a microwave, under-the-counter fridge, toaster oven and a portable stove top with two burners.

It was a great stay and a super fun weekend in Kentucky. I would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a quiet countryside retreat that is also a reasonable drive to quite a few cities with all kinds of things to do. Cindy and Dan are wonderful folks and really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Also a huge thumbs up for being pet friendly! We hope to go back soon.

Kentucky Wonder

  • 5 of 5

Wow! The property itself is only surpassed by the hospitality of the hosts. We've stayed at numerous VRBO's and this was undoubtedly the best. It was well maintained, very clean and stocked with everything you might need. The grounds were terrific - a beautiful garden-like atmosphere. Dan and Cindy were so helpful and gracious. (The cheese and fruit tray we found upon arrival may have saved our lives - we arrived very late and had missed dinner). They assisted with our Derby plans and provided a lot of good info on the events and logistics. Do yourself a favor and stay here. I know we'll be back!

Best time at the farm! Hope to go back sometime!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better stay for our first adventure to Kentucky and staying in a rental house instead of hotel. Being our first time not staying at a hotel we were a bit skeptical of how it worked and what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised at how welcoming our hosts were and how beautiful the studio and farm was. The studio was plenty big enough for our energetic puppy and the two of us. It was nicely decorated, bright and cheery. Everything looked spotless and brand new. We were delighted to find a homemade breakfast in our fridge, kind note, and welcome gift upon our middle of the night arrival. We were worried about checking in late since we had a long drive but the hosts were very accommodating with our situation. Our dog was overjoyed with being able to explore their property and see lots of wildlife we don't see at home. We already miss the farm and relaxing in the hot tub. Staying at the farm was my favorite part of the trip. While a little far from all the bourbon trail activity, we didn't mind the drives and we're happy to end our days at the farm. When we couldn't make it back in time to give our dog dinner, our host was kind enough to offer to take care of him so we could enjoy a dinner out. Very touched by all of the extra help and accommodating nature of our hosts. Everything was wonderful! We hope to go back soon. Would recommend to anyone!

Hidden Gem

  • 4 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this property. I was a bit concerned coming in, as the owners live immediately next door, I was worried about privacy. I had no need to worry! They introduced themselves when I arrived and that is the last I saw of them, unless it was by my instigation. The place was so clean and uncluttered. I loved sitting outside in the morning and watching the hummingbirds and butterflies as I drank my coffee. I even had visitors - Toby, Simon, and Loki - the owners' pets! They were friendly and adorable. Although, I did not make it to the outdoor sauna, it was very nice and peaceful. I appreciated the outdoor hot tub after a long day of sightseeing and shopping in Shelbyville. I will definitely keep this place in mind for my next weekend getaway in that area!
