Renovated Train Station on Thoroughbred Horse Farm

Bedrooms 2
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Farmhouse, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Come stay in our newly renovated 1890's train station in the heart of the bluegrass.

We are on a working thoroughbred horse farm right off Paris Pike, one of the most scenic areas in all of Central Kentucky. Drive by Gainsway and Elemendorf farms on the way to Claiborne farm. 15 minutes to the Kentucky Horse Park, Fasig Tipton, close to Keeneland and the Lexington area attractions.

Hutchison Station was part of the L&N railroad system between 1890-1950, it still has the original hardwood floors, 12' ceilings and much of the original molding. In its heyday it included a post office, livestock loading platform, general store and blacksmith's shop. You can read more about the station house in 'Ghost Railroads of Kentucky'. Many of the original families still live in the area.

Area activities include a 9 hole golf course within walking distance, and a short drive to many 18 hole courses, horse farm tours, historical sites including Shakertown, Mary Todd Lincoln House, Henry Clay Estate, Civil War battlefields and much more.

We have easy access to I75 & I64 and are located 1/2 way between Lexington and Paris.

Lovely, comfortable, and relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I recently visited Kentucky for the first time. We could not have found a better place to stay. Steve and Lisa are great hosts - they greeted us upon arrival, and had fresh flowers and cookies waiting in the rental. The train station is quite unique and beautiful. We didn't want for anything during our stay. The farm is calming, and stresses of everyday life disappear. The country is so beautiful with the rolling hills, fences and horses. Though you are in the country, places to eat, shop and tour are nearby. And if you want to just spend time away from it all, there is no better place to take a stroll or look into the eyes of a soul-catching horse or two. I can't wait to visit again.

Amazing Stay With New Foals

  • 5 of 5

Steve & Lisa made us feel right at home once again! They even had 4 new foals to make this stay even more memorable. We wouldn’t consider staying any where else in the Paris/Lexington area!

Beautiful Kentucky Treasure

  • 5 of 5

So much to say, so little space! This property is set back along beautiful horse farms and rolling hills. The words "attention to detail" come to mind when describing our stay. Upon entering our rental we were awestruck at what was within this landmark building. High ceilings, comfy furniture, a breakfast nook, completely furnished kitchen - all you need and then some! Cookies were waiting for us when we arrived! The bedrooms had plenty of storage space for your belongings and super comfy beds with full linens. The claw foot tub was so inviting I went out and got a bath bomb just to make sure I didn't waste the opportunity! Everything was spotless and the grounds are well manicured. Interior decorating was breathtaking and very welcoming. The mini horse and mini donkey were extremely friendly; we had to make a run to pick up apples and carrots just to lend a little treat time. :-) Only 45 minutes from the Ark Encounter and minutes from WalMart, CVS should you need anything. Steve was very communicative and friendly. He suggested we eat breakfast at Windy Corner and we were truly not disappointed! We loved our stay and hope to return! Highly recommend! Thank you!

Loved it! Extremely clean and decorated expertly to compliment the history of the property!

  • 5 of 5

We would definately come back to this property located in a peaceful and picturesque setting! Close to area attractions, yet just far enough removed from the city, so you feel like a part of the beautiful horse country. Owners were accessible and friendly, down to the personalized touch of homemade chocolate chip cookies. The entire unit was roomy, beds were very comfortable, and kitchen was supplied with everything you need. Great job Steve and Lisa-see you next time!
