So, if you need to accommodate a group up to 22 together for family reunions, weddings, church retreats...perhaps Greystone is just your ticket!

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.

About James Welch

Owners Jim and Ginger Welch purchased Greystone in June 2010 and started renovating immediately. They know you'll love it as every guest has, as they've made it a point to have their homes in great settings to enjoy...and now you, their guests, can too!

James Welch purchased this house in 2011

Why James Welch chose Louisville

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 moved our warehouse for our distribution company here to be close to UPS Worldport.

What makes this house unique

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, deer, turtles, etc. 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. Greystone provides 4 on-site kayaks and a launching dock to enjoy the 3 acre pond, too. And...Louisville has a lot to offer!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know how much we enjoyed vacationing at Greystone this past weekend.  You have a lovely home in a wonderful neighborhood.  Our group had a wonderful time and we were thankful to have such a nice place to stay.

Excellent house for large groups

  • 5 of 5
This house was the perfect location for our reunion. Many rooms for socializing and many comfortable places to sleep. The house is beautiful and well maintained. Excellent lake views, plenty of outside space, nice neighborhood and reasonable distance to downtown Louisville and other attractions.

Jim was very responsive to all questions/comments through the whole process and accommodating of our large group. I would highly recommend this house for any group.

Wonderful House for a Retreat / Reunion

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 12 college friends came together here for a weekend and had a very enjoyable experience. The house is very large and spacious and is well suited for large groups or get togethers looking for a 'retreat'. Plenty of social rooms to hang out in and plenty of sound isolation if light sleepers want to use the bedrooms while others are active. Very beautiful backyard, perfect for lawn games, and a great screened in patio and outdoor deck that we spent most of our time on. Excellent game room downstairs. I think Jim's pictures and details describing the website capture the house very accurately and should give other prospective renters a very clear depiction of what they're getting.

Property was very clean and well maintained. Jim was very helpful with suggesting restaurants and things to do in the area.

Youth Convention

  • 5 of 5
We were in town for a youth convention and 26 people (20 youth and 6 adults) stayed very comfortably in this home with no problems. The accommodations were exceptional and true to pictures and descriptions. The house and grounds were clean and well maintained in a quiet neighborhood. We had plenty of privacy. Jim was very helpful providing us with all the information needed and even suggestions on things to do. He called and checked on us and made sure we had everything we needed and made himself and his representatives available to us. I would definitely recommend this place to large groups, families, or multiple families to stay together. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and close to anything that is needed or wanted which makes it the perfect place to stay.

Owner's Response: Susan, I obviously was concerned at the number of people in your group, but your church and the teens took care of the house perfectly...Thank you! That reflects very well on the adults, so I commend you and the young adults in your care. Hope to see you again in the future. Jim

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5
10 of us stayed for 4 nights and loved the house. It has every amenity you can imagine, and we used the mall. Great sound system throughout the house, basketball court, kayaks for the pond, amazing enclosed patio, huge deck with a grill, and a ridiculous man cave to name a few. Everything we clean and in order. I could not recommend a better house if you're staying in the Louisville area.

Lovely Home, Set up for convenient rental

  • 5 of 5
I really enjoyed my stay here. The house was set up extremely well to accommodate a group like the one that we had staying there. Every bedroom had the convenience of a inflatable "bed in a box". It also had plenty of space to stretch out in.

The home theater added an easy way to let 6-8 people sit and enjoy a ball game or movie. The sun room also provided a nice place to sit and either play a game of cards or read, and on cool nights we were able to open all the sliding windows to enjoy the nice breeze.

I would recommend this place for a group that isn't looking to get too out of control. Which could include family gatherings or class reunions.

Excellent vacation home

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I were looking for a fun place to spend the weekend in Louisville and we found it at Greyhouse. The home was perfect for our group of 10. There was plenty of room and all of the furnishings and entertainment options were first rate. Between the projection-screen TV, expansive outdoor deck and lake, some of us didn't want to leave the house. Jim was wonderful to work with and it is obvious they care about creating a truly exceptional experience for their guests. Highly recommended.
