About Marquetta Poynter, Jerry Phelps

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

Why Marquetta Poynter, Jerry Phelps chose Louisville

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

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.

Excellent accommodation at Americas Barn

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful location, quiet, peaceful and a great greataway. Our one week stay was perfect and could not have been any better. Jerry and Marquetta were wonderful host/owners.
The cottage is impecable with all amenities and more. It is beautifully clean, has good quality linens, lovely amenities and a great little find almost in the heart of Louisville.
Great for honeymooners, couples and anyone seeking a peaceful retreat. B&B treats.. farm fresh eggs and the roosters to prove it ! we could not have asked for more.
Thanks tons

Exploring Kentucky

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!
