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.

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!

DR. DOOLITTLE WOULD FEEL RIGHT AT HOME!

  • 5 of 5
I have stayed in several VRBO properties, but none like this one. It's not everyday you wake up, look out your bedroom window to see a camel and miniature donkey waiting for you to come out and play! Our two year old grandson was in heaven getting to feed and interact with all of the different animals that are residents of the farm. Mike and Michelle have a fabulous place and truly love all of their animals.

The photo's don't really do this property justice. Yes it is attached to a horse barn, but it is the cleanest VRBO property I have ever stayed in. I'm not sure when it was built, but it looks very new and fresh. The location is great! Just far enough out of town to be peaceful and quiet, but close enough if you needed to make a Wal-Mart run, you could be back in 15 mins.

Mike and Michelle are wonderful property owners! They are very knowledgeable about the area and made suggestions on things to see and do. I would recommend this property to anyone who needs a little escape and have a walk on the wild side. No reason to go to a zoo, when you can stay at one!

UNIQUE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
If you are a person who likes uniqueness, beautiful surroundings, and want a very comfortable get away close to Lexington then this is the place for you. Basic but very well furnished and equipped one bedroom apartment with the only requirement to be a person that enjoys animals (both domestic and exotic). Only 10 minutes from major shopping and within 30 minutes or so from most of Lexington's Horse, Bourbon and Historical highlights. A perfect place whether your intent is to spend some quiet personal away time or have a homey place to come back to after a busy day of exploring the area. Our two week stay was made even more enjoyable by our most gracious hosts, Mike and Michelle, who provided us with information on area attractions, many enjoyable stories, a farm and animal tour and shared with us some of their local bounties. With relatives in the area we are already looking forward to some future stays. DON'T FORGET APPLES FOR GUNNER AND ISEMAN PLUS OTHERS!

EXOTIC ANIMALS, COMFORTABLE SETTING, AMAZING FRIENDLY HOSTS, BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5
Michael and Michelle were amazing hosts, and the place was terrific. Very relaxing, very comfortable, very clean and well-maintained. The photos reflected exactly what we found. My girlfriend was visiting from another country, and she and I were able to relax every night grilling out and looking at the stars. It's close enough to Lexington (~10 minutes by car) to get all the things you need, but far enough away to feel completely disconnected. It was also only 10 minutes to Kentucky Horse Park.

And the animals! Gunner and Iceman, the camels, were obsessed with us, as we were with them, always eating out of our hands and looking for more. We would wake up in the morning and Gunner would be looking at us out the window, waiting for us to give him treats. The zebra was a little shy, but would always be interested in us. The buffalo, the steer, the llamas - all friendly and wanting to see what treats we had. And we were able to hold a newly-laid ostrich egg!

But the best part was Michael and Michelle, who were the perfect hosts and made us feel like we were friends staying there. They checked on us, brought us gifts, and shared stories about the farm.

A perfect place - will definitely go back! Would recommend their place to everyone!
