Guestbook comments from the owner
I cannot thank you enough for the amazing hospitality you both showed to David and I. Your cabin was the perfect setting for our romantic getaway. All of the little extras and niceties show just how much you truly care about the comfort of your guests. We really could not have asked for anything more! The fully stocked kitchen with all the yummy food was over the top! I've never had brown eggs before, now I'm hooked! We will definitely be back! Thanks so much.

We are so excited to offer America's Barn to be shared and enjoyed by our guests. It has been our dream for years to be able to share our gorgeous and unique property that we have owned for over 15 years. We hope you find your time with us to be relaxing and rewarding.

Marquetta Poynter, Jerry Phelps purchased this house in 1996

We love the convenience of this location. We are near ALL areas of interest and/or need: museums, sports venues ,fairgrounds, airport and medical center complex.

We are in a VERY convenient location but as you turn in the drive the metropolitan access is left behind and the rural beauty becomes the focus. There is complete privacy as well as the feel of 'country' living.

The beauty of wildlife, fruit trees, and the sounds of chickens help you to feel very removed from the 'city' life.

EXPLORING KENTUCKY

  • 5 of 5
America's Barn was a great experience for my wife and I. Marquetta and Jerry (owners) are the definition of Southern hospitality. This place gives a feel of being in the country but is located near the airport and some major highways which made day excursions very efficient. The interior is immaculate and the fresh laid eggs and other breakfast foods in the well stocked fridge are convenient and delicious. The porch swing is a great way to relax after a long day driving through the beautiful countrysides of Kentucky. We spotted some resident deer several times during our stay. Any questions about points of interest, dining etc. were offered in detail from our hosts. Staying here we both truly felt as though we were staying with family and appreciated the details that went into making our stay enjoyable. We loved the chickens too. Thank you both for a great stay! Next time we visit Kentucky we will be coming to the barn without a doubt :)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review. We appreciate hearing from our guests. Jerry and I want to give the comfort and privacy of home but also provide the little "extra" touches that make our Barn special. You said that the pictures really don't show the charm of Americas Barn. Many guests have said the same thing. I do think there is a hospitality that cannot be captured in a photo. We would welcome the opportunity to have you as our guests again. Best wishes to both of you. Thanks again! Happy and safe travels. Marquetta

I cant begin to tell you how awesome this cottage is. Jerry & Marquetta will treat you like family. No slamming hotel doors,no traffic noise, eat when you want-no deadlines! The cleanest and homelike you will ever find. the pictures are nice but still don't show how very nice it is there. We go back every year. I'm picky and rely on these reviews.Hopefully this review will help others.

SO SWEET!

  • 5 of 5
I absolutely loved our stay. My husband and I were looking for a place to be alone for a few days and this was perfect. We said hello to the wild life and the chickens, whom I never heard but loved seeing. The pool was wonderful and available at ANYTIME. I loved my late night swims. I was so impressed with our accommodations that I am taking my 11 year old back next summer!

GREAT COZY & CLEAN GETAWAY PLACE FOR 2!

Great Cozy & Clean Getaway Place For 2!
  • 5 of 5
Having had our hits and misses with standard hotels over the years and hoping for something a little more unique and comfortable for an extended stay, my wife and I explored VRBO options near Louisville for a wedding we had to travel to and America's Cabin was the perfect answer. Being it was December, the snowy fields looked different from the pictures but along with the chicken coop next door still looked like something right out of a classic picture postcard.
It was very close to the airport and it took us about 15 minutes or so to get to the Bardstown Road/Highland area were allot of our visiting was taking place, just perfect for being able to soak in some city life but also be able to distance yourself and get away to a quiet place. For our local relatives downtown that was like being in another state, but myself being from the SF Bay Area the "commute" wasn't rough at all compared to home where any time you get in your car you commit to a minimum of 20 minutes to get to the grocery store.
You can tell the moment you walk in that allot of care has gone into the construction and upkeep of the cabin, all the systems and amenities functioned great, and Marquetta was fantastic and easy to work with not to mention stocking the fridge and counter with some great food stuffs.
Bottom line, if your travel plans require a head quarters to crash at for round the clock night life this isn't the place, but if you're like us looking for a comfortable, clean, and relaxing place to take the edge of being away from your home this works great.
Thanks again America's Cabin!
