We realize Greystone will not fit within everyone's budget, especially for a small group. However, we have others. Please consider the size of your group and what you would have to collectively pay to stay in a decent hotel! Here, your family and friends can all stay together and enjoy a memorable 7,250 sq ft private home in a beautiful setting and make your event really special! So, if you need to accommodate a group up to 22 together for family reunions, weddings, church retreats...perhaps Greystone is just your ticket! There is nothing like in on the vacation rental market in the entire Louisville area!
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 2+ acre pond with large fountain. 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 see our private website linked below with over 150 photos and much more information about the house and events in Louisville. Greystone is more than just a vacation rental...it is our home, and we look forward to you being our guests in it. When guests come, we take the opportunity to travel or visit our grandkids in Maryland and California!
