Greystone was built in 1991 but renovated and completely redecorated when we purchased it in mid-2011. It is located in the upscale Lake Forest area of Louisville, just 16 short miles by freeway to downtown and 20 miles by freeway from Churchill Downs. The 7,250 square feet of living space and will accommodate groups up to 22, although there is a surcharge for groups over 12. ($30 per day per guest fee, but children under 24 months are not counted.)
The 5 large bedrooms (4 King and 1 Queen bed) are all theme decorated, plus there is a Loft and Game Room with sleeper-sofas, two AeroBed Queens, and 4 AeroBed Twin XL, (plus very comfy leather sofas and recliners that could accommodate added sleeping). The house is filled with art objects and the setting is truly park-like, with the large 3/4 acre landscaped lot sitting adjacent a 3 acre pond with fountains and great night lighting. The views from the house are fantastic! Greystone will provide a wonderful and relaxing setting for your next family reunion, church retreat, small wedding, or corporate executive stay. See the few photos here on VRBO and check out our private website (linked just above the photos at the bottom of this page) for hundreds of photos and much more information about the house and events in Louisville.

Owners Jim and Ginger Welch live between homes in Pine Mountain Club, California and in Louisville, Kentucky. Jim is President of uDecor, Inc, an importer and premier supplier of architectural decor for the design and building industries and the founder/director of Wishihadthat, Inc. He travels between offices on a frequent basis, and oversees operations of a warehouse in Louisville, KY. Ginger was a long-term school teacher in California and retired after the school year in June 2010 and they still maintain a home at Pine Mountain Club, CA. They have been married over 41 years, and raised three sons and have seven grandchildren. They enjoy traveling and often bring their two dogs (a large Goldendoodle and a Mini-Schnauzer) on some of the trips in their travel trailer. They have excellent managers at both house locations, The Galleria at Pine Mountain Club and Greystone at Louisville, to keep things running when they are away, and both are now available for short-term vacation rental. Greystone was renovated right after they purchased and equipped for Jim and Ginger and rental guests. Galleria in Pine Mt. Club was purchased new in 2007. Together, Jim and Ginger know you'll love either one for a few days like they do, as they've made it a point to have their homes in great settings to enjoy themselves...and now you, their guests, can too!
This is our home when we are in Kentucky, which is the majority of the year. We chose Louisville for two reasons: our oldest son and family lived here, and we are opening a warehouse for our uDecor distribution company here to be close to UPS Worldport.
The setting is absolutely beautiful at Greystone, and feels very private. The 3 acre pond is a draw for Canadian Geese, ducks, Great Blue Heron, and deer. It has the feel of a beautiful private park and is a perfect setting for small weddings and receptions, church retreats, and of course family vacations and reunions. And...Louisville has a lot to offer!
