About Dawn and Jerry Runner
We are a married couple who enjoy our organic urban farm, sports (especially MLB baseball, Go Tigers!), updating our 119 yr old southern charmer shotgun house, spending time outdoors in many activities, and eating delicious food. We love Louisville and all the great dining and entertainment that is available here and we love to assist our guests in making the most of their stay!
Dawn and Jerry Runner purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Dawn and Jerry Runner chose Smoketown Jackson
Jerry was born and raised in Louisville and he bought the property to restore it. When I first saw the house I fell in love with it's style, craftsmanship and charm. So much of the neighborhood still has these shotgun homes built in the late 1800's/early 1900's with their 10ft ceilings, 8ft windows, hard wood floors, thick bricks walls. And even though they are homes that were built for the working man, I think they are so very charming, with a simple elegance. It's wonderful to see the trend of the last few years of these homes being restored and appreciated

Great find for us!
Very comfortable, clean, with the creature comforts of home. We just needed a place for one night and it fit our criteria.
Dawn & Jerry were extremely easy to communicate with & friendly, the home was even prettier in person than in the pictures, and the location was great!
Wonderful house, amazing amenities, awesome owners, would stay again!!
This was a wonderful place to stay! Right near the heart of down town with out being in downtown. It's just a couple miles from more attractions than you can visit in a week, from many distilleries, steamboat rides, great places to eat and so many great parks! Cherokee park is only 10 mins from here and there are other amazing parks near here as well. This apartment did not disappoint. There is a full size fridge, a nice full couch, dining area, a queen and a full bed, a full bath, an entry way, microwave, dishes, an iron...it's just amazing. It's like walking into a home away from home. So much better than a hotel, and so much cheaper than a hotel! It had an access code to get in, and we were able to park on the street. The traffic was not loud and there wasn't much of it either. If we visit the city again we will without a doubt book here again! Thank you Dawn and Jerry :)
lovely stay in louisville
We loved staying in this home. Dawn was very responsive to messages and extremely welcoming. The home was clean and super charming, the outdoor space was a huge bonus but the home itself was spacious and had all the creature comforts we needed and more. I cannot recommend this home enough, and will stay here again if I ever return to the city.
Thanx for your lovely review. We are so glad you all enjoyed yourselves as much as we enjoyed hosting you. We would be delighted to have you stay again if you do get the chance to return to Louisville. Happy Travels!
This was our 2nd stay in two weeks. We stopped here on the front and back ends of a family road trip. We enjoyed our stay both times and felt very welcome!
What a charming place to stay! The attention to detail in decor and hospitality was delightful. We enjoyed walking the neighborhood in the evening and sitting out on the deck.
