The house and yard are very nice but some parts need updating. King bed us not in master bedroom and DVD is built into tv in master bedroom. Mattress in master bedroom is like sleeping on a whoopsie cushion. If these things are addressed, I would stay there again.
Great location. Very nice kitchen. Beds were comfortable. Clean except for a couple of cobwebs. Would highly recommend.
When I first saw this property on VRBO I passed it up because it looked so plain on the outside, but the inside is lovely. Three bedrooms and two baths all well equipped with lovely quilts, blankets, extra towels, etc. The fenced in back yard was great for our dogs. The internet worked really well as did the tv's in the living room and mbr. We enjoyed the eat in kitchen which is extremely well stocked for a rental. Nothing we needed was missing. And the real blessing was the short drive to the Kentucky horse park where our horses were staying. Owner great. The house is close to the train track so if the sound of trains bothers you then you won't like the place. I love that sound and it just lulled me to sleep every night.
We stayed for a quick 4 day vacation and were very comfortable in the house. It is much bigger inside than the pictures make it seem and definitely has more space that the outside appearance shows. The location was out of downtown yet on a busy street, which made it accessible to get around but still had frequent traffic. The house is well insulated and you can't hear any of the outside activity from indoors. Each evening we set up a couple chairs in front and were able to easily relax. There are a couple of blemish areas in the house, but nothing major and nothing that deterred from the experience of staying there. We would definitely be interested in coming back when we return to the area.
This house was so inviting and truly felt like a home away from home. It's in a great location to access all our horsey points of interest easily - and the dogs loved having a back yard to play in! It was so very inviting and had all we needed for a great stay. We were sad to leave but we will certainly be back!
The house was a wonderful place and fit our stay perfectly. We spent the week at Thanksgiving visiting our son and family. Our daughter and her family came along and the house provided us with room to spreadout. There was also a big back yard for the kids to run. The home owner was helpful even providing items we needed and the house very clean and was fully equiped for the stay. We look forward to staying on our next visit. Thank you!
