Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay immensely at the cottage on the farm in the Bluegrass state.

The website gave fantastic information and pictures - but the place was so stunning pictures could not do it justice. We probably were longer term renters than most on VRBO - as we were staying to recuperate from knee surgery.

The place is larger than one would expect for a one bedroom ( actually more like a 2 bedroom), lots of space indoors and outdoors. Michelle has thought of everything to make a short or longer stay pleasurable. The immediate surroundings are fantastic - a tree lined driveway leads you to the cottage surrounded by green rolling hills with lots of fantastically friendly exotic animals - gunner the camel becomes a pal immediately. There are too numerous to count short scenic drives surrounding the farm. But we enjoyed the immediate surroundings so much we rarely ventured over a few miles - however even though you seem "away from it all" - it is only a 5 minute drive to Lexington.

The Finks could not be better host - they will give you privacy - but we enjoyed chit chatting with them, always making sure we felt welcomed - even supplying us with home grown beef and garden treats.

Thanks to Michelle and Mike for a wonderful stay and hope to see you again in the future.

I highly recommend this place! You’re in the country, quiet and peaceful yet close to Lexington and Winchester. Loved the grounds and the animals! Would definitely stay here again!

Loved the location. It was very peaceful & we greatly appreciated how clean & well kept everything was. Our only downfall was the bedroom mattress - it just wasn't comfortable for us. We'll still be returning as we enjoy Keeneland at least twice a year. Thanks so much!

Beautiful get away in the heart of horse country.

  • 5 of 5

We loved being far enough away from the city to enjoy the peace and quiet of horse living but close enough to access Lexington in 15 minutes or less. The property is just gorgeous and everything you could ask for is available. We loved our stay and hope to return again!

Perfect location and relaxing setting

  • 5 of 5

We loved being close to town but far enough away to relax. Plus we were surrounded by animals. Gunner the camel is the coolest camel you'll ever meet. It was a relaxing and enjoyable stay.

What a great place to stay before, during and after the birth of our first grandchild. The owners were very welcoming, and we were very comfortable with our surroundings. Truly enjoyed the exotic animals on the property!

We enjoyed our stay, nice to have a homey place to come back to at the end of the day. Exotic animals kept us company and were fun to watch. The owners were friendly and welcoming. We would stay again when in the area.
