RENOVATED TRAIN STATION ON THOROUGHBRED HORSE FARM

Lexington Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

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, historicl 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.

Lisa and I run a Thoroughbred horse farm where the Station House is located. We live on the farm, Lisa since she was 5 years old. Farm duties involve the breeding and raising of thoroughbred horses. Lisa and her father raised and raced their own horses off this farm.

This property has been part of the family farm since the 60's.

Wake up and have breakfast while looking at a field full of horses. Historic accommodations in a peaceful atmosphere. Walk to a 9 hole golf course.

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay on Steve and Lisa's horse farm. The property is spectacular. Every night we were able to watch the mares and foals. This area of Lexington/Paris is filled with horse farms and so picturesque, yet still close to major attractions. Upon our arrival there were cookies and freshly cut flowers. The house was very clean and not cluttered. It was stocked with toilet paper, hand soap, etc. This is the only vrbo we have rented where we didn't have to take a quick trip to the store for those little necessities. It was much appreciated after a long drive. Feeding the donkey's was my sons favorite part of the stay! He is a toddler and had plenty of room to play in the grass by the property. We would definitely rent this property again.

ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIC

  • 5 of 5
This is a superb property. A quiet, elegantly decorated and refined place to stay with an idyllic view of horses in a pasture. The owner lives within sight of the
rental unit which is a huge plus if there ever is a problem. We had no problems but have done a lot of rentals like this did need to contact the owner. I hesitate to say more because we intend to rent again next year for a spring golf getaway week.

WONDERFUL RESPITE

  • 5 of 5
Having been through the death of my Mom and the aftermath there could not have been a better place for my husband and I to go for a week. In fact, we extended our stay for two more days. The beauty of the surrounding area, their farm, the horses with their babies and the property where we stayed was just beautiful. Steve and Lisa were warm, courteous and went beyond to welcome us and make our stay all it was. We followed their 'tips' for great places to eat and visit....but our most enjoyable time was spent right there on their farm.

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Steve for a wonderful place to stay. Everything about this rental was just perfect from the beautiful property that it sits on to the comfortable beds and the homemade cookies that were waiting for us. We will surely come back and this time stay longer! I would recommend to anyone traveling to the beautiful state of Kentucky.

EXCELLENT PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
This old railway station out in the country is just great for a getaway or a family vacation. The Parkes have just finished the north side of the building (so it is now a duplex) and both sides are clean, homey, well appointed and very comfortable. Our family occupied both sides last week and we had a wonderful time. And the owners are very attendant to your wishes....will definitely return!
