Lexington House Rental Photos and Description
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 2-4)
Travel to Paris, KY's horse country and visit our restored log and stone house. It is located on a working cattle and horse farm. We are 25 - 30 minutes from Interstates 75 & 64 in Lexington. Rodgers Creek runs beside the house flowing into near by Stoner Creek. A view from the kitchen overlooks Creekview Farm, a Coolmore property. From the opposite dining area window, cows and calves could be grazing in the field.
A short drive on the scenic Paris Pike takes you past the Kentucky Training Center to Lexington, where you might take in a basketball game or concert at Rupp Arena, attend the Keeneland races or horse sales, or book area horse farm tours. The Kentucky Horse Park on Ironworks Rd is 25 miles away.
Take a day trip to Berea, KY to see their arts and crafts. Relive Kentucky history when you visit Fort Boonesborough or Fort Harrod. Visit the Kentucky History Museum in Frankfort, our state capitol. Louisville, home of the Kentucky Derby, is a 90 minute drive.
More About the Property: Locally, Paris ('Horses, History, Hospitality') is a warm community. Visit Duncan Tavern, also built in 1788; schedule a tee time at Houston Oaks golf course; stop at the Farmer's Market for some local produce.
Inside the house, you will enjoy spending time in the large but cozy log living room. Upstairs takes you to the second floor log bedroom and bath. Please note that the stairs are steep; they are original to the house, although when it was built, there were no stairs - just a ladder. This feature makes the house unsuitable for young children. A short hallway (with first floor bath) off the living room, leads to the stone bedroom - a warm blue color. The kitchen and dining areas in the rear of the house feature a vaulted ceiling and a contrast of log inner wall and colorful exterior wall. Off the kitchen is a laundry area with washer and dryer. A detached garage stands behind the house.
This is a non-smoking house, and pets are not allowed. You can contact us for special long term rental rates.

This log and stone house was built by my great, great, great, great grandfather in the late 1780's - about 1788 we think. KY became a state in 1792, so he was one of the early settlers. It has been occupied since that time until 1997. We knew it was a log home, but the logs had been covered with plaster for many years. In 2004 we began our restoration and discovered the beauty of the original structure. It was important to us to retain its rustic character, but make it comfortably modern, as it was to be a second home to us. When we completed the work, we felt the need to share its uniqueness with others, deciding to offer it as a vacation rental.
