Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay immensely at the cottage on the farm in the Bluegrass state.



The website gave fantastic information and pictures - but the place was so stunning pictures could not do it justice. We probably were longer term renters than most on VRBO - as we were staying to recuperate from knee surgery.



The place is larger than one would expect for a one bedroom ( actually more like a 2 bedroom), lots of space indoors and outdoors. Michelle has thought of everything to make a short or longer stay pleasurable. The immediate surroundings are fantastic - a tree lined driveway leads you to the cottage surrounded by green rolling hills with lots of fantastically friendly exotic animals - gunner the camel becomes a pal immediately. There are too numerous to count short scenic drives surrounding the farm. But we enjoyed the immediate surroundings so much we rarely ventured over a few miles - however even though you seem "away from it all" - it is only a 5 minute drive to Lexington.



The Finks could not be better host - they will give you privacy - but we enjoyed chit chatting with them, always making sure we felt welcomed - even supplying us with home grown beef and garden treats.



Thanks to Michelle and Mike for a wonderful stay and hope to see you again in the future.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We loved staying at your "apartment". It was very clean, nicely decorated and very comfortable. Loved driving up the treelined driveway, being greeted by a most charming camel (Gunner) and his sidekick. Also enjoyed having all the other animals around. The location is convenient to shopping, sightseeing and many restaurants, yet is outside of the hustle and bustle of the city. Everything was perfect. Would highly recommend your place to most anyone visiting the area. Comfortable bed. Would liked to have had a blender for my morning smoothies. Thanks for sharing your property!

Peaceful and Relaxing Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
My mother, myself and my 3 year old little boy visited Lexington for the first time and we couldn't have asked for a better time! The rental unit sits on a fenced landscape with a variety of animals and nature's beauty at her best!!! It is so peaceful and relaxing in this area, so very quiet! We sat outside by the garden at the picnic table several times to just talk, laugh and look at the land. The owner's live right up the road and are very friendly and accommodating! In fact, we have become friends after our stay! A small play area is right outside the rental unit for little ones to play on and you can see the working cowboys early in the morning taking care of the animals and doing their chores. I would highly recommend this rental property to anyone! The kitchen is convenient, it offers a laundry room and the unit is not too far from town either. We were close to Walmart, Meijer, Walgreens, several restaurants and entertainment. But, just far enough away that you didn't hear any road noise. Michelle, the owner told us visiting Claiborne Farm in Paris, KY which in only about a 30 minute drive. So we went and took a tour, beautiful horse country in this area!!! This farm is where Secretariat was buried. All in all, we had a wonderful time and would go back in an instant! Best vacation for relaxation and to enjoy the outdoors in a beautiful landscape!

Home away from home plus exotic pets!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with our daughter for two weeks during a competition at Kentucky Horse Park. It was the perfect home away from home. Just a few minutes from KHP, it's an easy drive. The peaceful location combined with all of the wonderful exotic animals made for the perfect place to decompress after a hectic day showing at the horse park!

My daughter fell completely in love with their mini horse and I loved feeding Iceman and Gunner apples after a long day at the horse park.

This vacation rental has all the amenities of home plus the adventure of exotic animals and the warm hospitality of Michelle and Mike.

We can't wait to return next year!

No hotel can top it!

  • 5 of 5
My two friends and I immensely enjoyed our stay at this fabulous apartment! In fact, we began to say that the apt. was our home away from home. Mike and Michelle were very warm and welcoming and the apt. was very clean, spacious, and unique. This combined with the friendly, exotic animals and the warm, country setting made our stay one we will never forget. We will be back! A+ all the way around!
