Roomy with a backyard waterfall! Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at this house. While we didn't get to enjoy everything (like the large decks), we made full use of all of the space to celebrate my milestone birthday.

We made meals together in the well appointed kitchen, ate and played games together around both of the large tables, and snuggled on the comfy furniture in the living and family rooms.

The well stocked bathrooms and roomy bedrooms was perfect for our large group and we even got to enjoy the piano as one of our budding musicians played us his favorite tune.

The kids loved the table tennis and also the massive number of closets which were perfect for hide and seek!

My favorite part of the house was the gorgeous waterfall in the backyard. Even though you can't see it from the house, it is absolutely worth the walk down the hill through the soft leaves to check it out! What a gift!

While in Louisville, we went to the Mega Caverns and also explored Cave Hill cemetery, the final resting place of Muhammad Ali.

Thanks for playing a part in making my birthday special!

Great house with tons of space!

  • 4 of 5

I had a group of 7 staying hear and we had plenty of space for everyone to sleep in their own beds and hang out together in the evenings. The house is tucked back in a very nice private community and surrounded by woods and other nice houses.

The house itself is a little dated on the inside bud it did provide us with all of the essentials such as beds, fridge, coffee maker, dish washer, washing machine, dryer and even a coffee maker. There were also several TVs throughout the house with cable hooked up but we did not spend much time using those as we were out of the house for the the bourbon trail most of the time. They also had free WiFi included which seemed pretty quick and was much needed since the 7 of us are all fairly tech dependent.

The house is pretty well located as its just about 15 minutes outside of downtown Louisville but it is also near a handful of stores and restaurants just down the road. It was also fairly close to a large portion of the distilleries for the bourbon trail so most of our longer trips were no longer than an hour out.

We had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a place to stay near Louisville!

Perfect space/Attentive host!

  • 5 of 5

I rented out this home for the board of a nonprofit organization to hold our annual meeting. Having everyone in one place, without having to deal with impersonal hotel spaces (and, even worse, bad hotel food!) was fantastic. We were able to bond more deeply with one another and share fellowship together over a fire in the evenings.

This space was particularly great because it had everything we needed -- plenty of sleeping space and meeting space, but also a fully-equipped kitchen and a beautiful deck. Wendy was also totally delightful to work with -- she's lightning fast to respond to questions and deeply hospitable.

We would absolutely stay here again if we ever have the opportunity to head back to Louisville!

Spent the 2017 Christmas holiday in this beautiful home. Tasteful decor included a lovely tree.

  • 5 of 5

To say this home was FULLY LOADED is an understatement. The living, dining, den & kitchen eat-in areas provided enormous space for our family Christmas dinner which fed close to 100 people. Games were played in the dining & living area; Christmas movies played in the den; Christmas music played on the CD player; the children were entertained with ping pong; Christmas presents were placed under the gorgeous tree; we had the first Christmas with the whole family and it was absolutely amazing. It was truly awesome that our cooks had every necessity from cookware/bakeware, kitchen towels, dishcloths, oven mitts, etc; spices, condiments; just over the top! Needless to say the 5 bedrooms were more than spacious; the baths offered wonderful, full-sized amenities; the laundry area offered every cleaning product for cleaning, ironing & tidying up the house. It was too cold to enjoy the deck area and grill but was such a huge lovely space. There is nothing anyone could want as everything has been thought of & then some-like the kitchen/desk nook with a LANDLINE!! Loved the welcome page on the cork board; notepads & pens; the welcome binder; & materials providing every activity in Louisville & the surrounding areas. Besides the wonderful piano, to include music books, I can’t think of anything I missed about this gorgeous place.

Louisville was voted the #1 destination city in the country in 2014. We have a host of attractions here including Louisville Slugger Bat Factory and Museum, KY Derby Museum and Churchill Downs horse racing, Bourbon distilleries, Belle of Louisville paddle wheel boat, Louisville Stoneware pottery, The Underground Mega Cavern and ziplines, the Glassworks, Falls of the Ohio State Park, Frazier History Museum, the zoo, an amusement park, historic homes and so much more.

With one of the top culinary schools in town, we have become one of the big "foodie" cities in the country. LOTS of cuisine choices and so many restaurants from high end to a quick bite. Enjoy plenty of bourbon infused dishes and fresh farm to table meals.

There are ample bourbon experiences downtown and within one hour of Louisville are the big distilleries on the KY Bourbon Trail. They welcome guests wanting to learn about how bourbon is made and aged and of course, offering a tasting of their products! Louisville also has many bars on their Urban Bourbon Trail. Each bar has anywhere from 50 to 150 kinds of bourbon on the shelf!

We have a professional soccer team, a Triple A baseball farm team for the Cincinnati Reds, the annual Ironman competition, lots of boating and kayaking on the Ohio River, we are a cycle friendly city and there are numerous wonderful golf courses in the area. Just south of town are a number of caves for hiking, exploring and spelunking (including Mammoth Cave) and we have a terrific local park system offering the usual range of activities... hiking, tennis, baseball, BMX tracks, playgrounds, swimming, disc golf, etc. The Mega Cavern is home to the country's largest all underground BMX bike park as well as all underground zip lines, some launching from 90 feet up!

People are always amazed when they get to Louisville how much is actually here. It's pretty phenomenal so plan to come visit and stay at our wonderful, relaxing vacation home offering easy access to all of it!
