Overview

Shelbyville Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

The Crockett House is less than ten minutes from downtown Frankfort, many restaurants and several shopping centers. It is five minutes from I-64 and makes a perfect rendezvous spot for family or friends. Surrounded by 53 acres of pasture and woodlands, the property makes a peaceful retreat. From the large screen porch, one can listen to nearby Armstrong Creek and watch deer and turkey move in and out of the woods. Parts of the two-story frontier home were built in 1825. It retains much of its original woodwork, including the staircase and board and batten doors. The entire house was tastefully remodeled in 2008.

About Sara and Jim Call

We are a retired teacher and mental health professional. We bought the Crockett House and farm at auction. We lovingly remodeled the house and planted a vineyard in 2008. September is harvest time. We sell our Vidal Blanc grapes to local wineries.

Sara and Jim Call purchased this farmhouse in 2007

Why Sara and Jim Call chose Shelbyville

The farm is such a beautiful spot. We enjoy it ourselves and love making it available for others to enjoy.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The outside world seems far removed as you drive down the lane to the farmhouse. Deer are frequent visitors in the evening and sometimes a flock of turkeys can be seen walking by the creek.

Love this Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at the Crockett House, and it's always very enjoyable here. We have everything we need to be more than comfortable, and our young boys love exploring the grounds outside. This is a great home away from home for us. We highly recommend this vacation house!

Staging area for the Bourbon Trail!

The Crockett House delivered on its promise of being a peaceful retreat in the heart of horse and bourbon country. Rustic charm and plenty of space inside and on the grounds to relax and enjoy time with friends and family. We will visit again.

Spacious country home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven spent Thanksgiving at the Crockett House and we had a wonderful time enjoying each other's company. We cooked Thanksgiving dinner together with all the trimmings. We enjoyed walking together throught the woods on the property. The farm is quite large, so you have a wonderful feeling of serenity and privacy. The house has a fully equipped kitchen and all the rooms are large and spacious. We live on the West Coast, but this house made us all feel like we were home.

Beyond Lovely!!!

  • 5 of 5

I'm so excited that I found this place! We rented this historic & charming 2-story farm house so we could have our own space for our young & growing family while being in town to visit with our extended family. This place is beyond wonderful, clean and located in a quiet and large amount of beautiful acreage. We look forward to staying here every time we visit our family in Frankfort. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet & charming retreat in Frankfort, anyone with a large family or with kids who need more space indoors and outdoors. The owners are super kind, helpful and live in town and are just a phone call away if any questions arise. Seriously looking forward to our Spring visit!!!
