LAST MINUTE SPECIAL: Bookings 10 days or less in advance 15% off your rate!

Old Louisville is one of the nation's premier Historic Preservation Districts. This 3800 square foot late Victorian brick home is perfectly situated within it: Less than 2 miles from Churchill Downs, 1 mile from fabulous live theater, performing arts center and entertainment district, 2 miles to the convention center and 5 miles from the airport. The Old Louisville neighborhood is noted for it's graceful mansions, vibrant October Art Fair and central location.

The home's exterior remains historically accurate, but the inside has been updated to accommodate up to four couples, each with a private bath. Three of the four bedrooms have an attached, private sitting or lounge area. All bedrooms have televisions and there is house wide wifi. There two queen and two double bedrooms. All beds are made with 400 thread count all cotton sheets, stylish spreads or duvets and four pillows per bed. Bathrooms are fully stocked with quality cotton towels and liquid hand soap.

The common areas include a gracious entry hall, comfortable living room and a fully equipped kitchen. Pots, pans, dishes, cutlery and glassware are all supplied.

Home rental includes two historic zone parking passes which enable parking directly curbside.

This home is perfect for visitors to the Kentucky Derby as Churchill Downs is less than 2 miles distant (shuttle to track is nearby as well). It is also a great spot for participants and trainers for the Ford Iron Man race which starts/ends at 4th Street Live and Waterfront Park. In addition, those coming to Louisville for Convention Center Events or Yum Center events will find this house closely situated to both! The St. James Art Fair draws 600,000 visitors to this neighborhood each October to view art from over 700 exhibitors. Enter less than a 1/2 block from this home.

In July, 'The Kentucky Shakespeare Festival' takes place in Central Park, about 2 blocks from the home. Enjoy free performances, a cash bar, snacks and musical entertainment before and after the shows. This year play is 'Much Ado About Nothing'. Also new this year is 'Movie Monday' in the park with free screenings in July and the first week of August.

New! An organin market 'The Root Cellar' has opened just two blocks from the home-- get the best in fresh produce and farm raised meats.

Our family of five travelled to Louisville for my brother's funeral services. The house is inviting,charming and very comfortable. It was just what we were looking for--allowing all of us to be together and have our privacy when needed. We loved the historical aspect of the house and the adventure of imagining living in different era. The house is well equipped --spacious bedrooms, sitting areas, bathrooms (we all had our own!) plenty of towels, etc. The house is centrally located which made our getting around the city very easy. We would definitely stay here again.

Great home for long weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for our long weekend away with our friends. We had 7 people stay here comfortably during the NCAA basketball tournament. We had plenty of room to spread out. We were within walking distance to campus and a long walk to 4th Street Live. The home was clean and as described. We would stay there again. The only improvement that we would recommend is to upgrade the television in the family room, it was pretty tiny for 7 seven of us to watch a basketball game.

Great Stay in a Cool Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
Our family of seven was very comfortable in this house. The kitchen is small, but had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable with really good quality cotton sheets (a pet peeve of mine). Overall, the Victorian style was cool, but not overdone.
The location was perfect-- less than two miles to the Expo center where we were working and close to dining, parks and downtown activities. We LOVED the Shakespeare in Central Park festival that was going on while we were here. Central Park is about a block and half walk-- we had cocktails while watching a really funny "Compleat Works of Shakespeare" performance. We also took the Old Louisville Walking tour one afternoon-- it was great to learn so much about the historic houses.
For the price, I don't think we could have gotten a better deal for a four bedroom, four bath place in Louisville.
