Escape from it all in this beautifully restored (with lots of modern twists) Victorian home in the trees. The house is so inviting, and filled with so much to do, that some guests never leave during their stay ... if you do, however: hike, bike, walk, play in our 'backyard' - Willow Park and Cherokee Park provide miles of walking trails and outdoor activities.
You're also minutes from downtown, the Ohio River, Kentucky Kingdom, Churchill Downs and the world's most famous horse race!
Our guest reviews speak for themselves ... and some of the biggest favs we hear are: heated tiles, Steinway grand, dry sauna, steam sauna, phone-controlled music throughout, Direct TV, Samsung Smart TVs, amazing kitchen, roaring fireplace, tranquil front porch, perfect-entertaining back deck, peaceful escape, hip-magazine-quality-design and true-local-insight/reservation-help and direction.
It's all yours ... this listing includes full, private access to the home, gorgeous views from every window; expansive back deck with grill, sectional and fire pit; rockers and swing on the front porch; all the high-tech you could ask for, including a Sonos music system, high-tech-thermostat and climate control, Apple-TV, HD Smart TVs; cool art; lots of space, one roaring wood-burning fireplace, two more traditional Victorian versions; and always a welcome basket complete with Kentucky treats. Be sure to check out all the pics and details for each.
Interaction with Guests:
The place is yours and I respect your privacy first and foremost. It's possible that I will be out of town and that there may be no other guests, but not a guarantee. :) Regardless, I'm always a phone call away for tips, inside advice - and you'll also have the phone numbers for our 'power team' for anything you need from our housekeeper and handy-guy house expert.
Ahhhh, where to begin ... this spot really has it all. Including beautiful, mature tree-lined streets and alleys, the city's best park and trail system and a couple blocks' walk to the best restaurants, shops, nightclubs and culture the city has to offer.
Be sure to plan to schedule a Distillery Tour ... you can sample bourbon at restaurants within blocks and plan day-trip visits to some of the most famous distilleries such as Maker's Mark, Woodford Reserve and more. The list is too long to mention here, but don't forget to add the Louisville Slugger bat factory, Muhammad Ali Center, Museum Row, Belle of Louisville Steamboat cruise ... just ask us for suggestions or help planning the perfect visit.
Other Things to Note:
I've had an amazing response to the venture into sharing my home - and have met some amazing folks in the process. Even those I don't get to meet personally - but who share their great experiences of my place and 'hood are super-rewarding. Our calendar has been pretty busy, so if you're looking at available dates - let me know how I can help you get confirmed.
Look forward to talking to you soon - and helping you plan an awesome visit to 'the 'ville.'

Yep, I'm a big supporter of the rental community - and am only interested in folks who feel the same way. I wrote up a set of house rules and more info at http://willowavenue.com ... here's a summary of the most important:
1. Respect the Neighborhood
2. Outdoor Curfew: 10pm
3. Leave it the Way You Found It
