My wife and I purchased this property in 1982 as we wanted something different and we wanted a challenge. The property was originally the R. W. Lacefield Lumber Company and was started in 1902. We have been working for the past 30 years to make the old warehouse behind the Carriage House our home. I hope to live long enough to see it completed as I am doing most of the work myself. We are the caretakers of the property and we are here to insure your stay is all you expected and more. We want you to tell your friends about Midway and we want you to come back as often as possible.

Scott Congleton purchased this house in 1982

The Carriage House was started in1902 and was the office/retail space for the lumber company. 30 feet behind the Carriage House is the old warehouse that my wife and I have been working on for over 30 years to make it into our home. Two buildings behind the warehouse had fallen in due to neglect and were hauled to the dump. There is a 1400 sq foot shed on the back of the property.

Midway is unique in that it does not have any franchise businesses at all. No Fast Food restaurants. You are just minutes from downtown Versailles, Frankfort, Georgetown, and Lexington KY. Midway is just off Interstate 64 which gives you fast access to Louisville and Cincinatti as well.

The Carriage House, built in 1902, is on the Kentucky Historical Buildings Charter. It is approximately 1100 square feet and has undergone a full restoration over the past three years. Shy of tearing the building down and coming up from the foundation it is all new. It has been completely re-wired with an up to date electrical service. It has a new HVAC System with humidity control as well as electrostatic filtration. The kitchen is completely new as is all the plumbing throughout the structure. There is a nice deck off the back of the house overlooking the vaccant lot nextdoor and shaded by an old River Birch and a Pine Tree. It is comfortable in the evenings even in the summer.

Midway is a small town more than a city as everything is in walking distance no matter where you are in the town. Railroad St, the main street of Midway, is full of nice restaurants, antique shops, leather and clothing stores. The town is in the heart of the Thoroughbred Farms in central KY. It is an ideal area for cycling as there are a number of competition events annually that start and finish in Midway. Midway is also on the KY Bourbon Trail and several of the great distilleries are just minutes from Midway and the tours are worth taking.

If you are a smoker then you will probably not like the Carriage House as it is a Totally Smoke Free Facility. No smoking of any substance will take place in or around the Carriage House. Having retired as a volunteer Fireman for Woodford County I have a fear and great respect for fire. Candles and cigarettes have caused more than one home in Midway to burn down. I don't want this to happen to my Carriage House. That and the fact that I don't want anyone to be bothered by the odor of old smoke and the reactions some people have to this. I have taken great measures to insure that the air in the Carriage House is as clean as possible. I have a commercial ORECK Filter running 24/7 to clean the air.

Weekend getaway

This house and this town were the perfect setting for a weekend getaway for my husband and I. You could tell the pride the owners take in the carriage house! The house was stocked with everything we needed - even some puzzles and games to relax and enjoy after a few days of sight-seeing! The town was adorable and just right around the block. Lots of restaurants to choose from and a quick walk back home after a glass of wine or bourbon! What we treasured most though was solitude and the owners gave us that completely! I am definitely recommending this to others - both the home and the area!

Visited Midway for the first time in October 2013 and stayed 3 nights at Midway Carriage House. Our party consisted of two couples, so the 2 bedroom, 2 bath setup was perfect. Bedrooms are HUGE and linens and other decor is first rate.Walkin closets with wood hangers and plenty of storage. Kitchen is modern and included all high end appliances, cookware, glasses, plates, etc. REALLY enjoyed the Bose CD player. Deck out back is very peaceful too. Scott was a pleasure to work with on the reservation process and made use feel very welcomed. Walking distance to all of the restaurants and a BEAUTIFUL church across the street with chimes. Loved Midway and look forward to a return trip soon.

Owner's Response: We ask everyone to make comments about how we can improve the unit and their stay but no one seems to want to change anything. Well that is not quite true as we did add comfortable pillows to the couch as requested as well as a fly swatter. We are so pleased that everyone is enjoying The Midway Carriage House and Midway. We are biased and feel that Midway is the perfect little town and can be enjoyed by all ages. Come back soon. Scott & Julie

A great stay !

This was a great place to stay. The house was spotlessly clean, very well appointed, and everything worked exactly as it should. There were absolutely no problems. We used it as a meeting point for our family as our son is a student at UK in nearby Lexington. We were also very pleased that this house is one block from downtown Midway which means that walking to and from restaurants was easy and fun. We also walked to a wonderful bakery, about a half mile away, for breakfast. (recommended by the owner Scott.)

A very nice place indeed.

Owner's Response: So far we have been blessed with great reviews and no owner could ask for more. We are always trying to improve the rental unit to make it more comfortable and inviting so everyone that stays here will want to come back. We certainly hope they will tell their friends about their experience while staying at The Midway Carriage House. I think the number one area that we focus on is how clean the unit is upon everyone's arrival. We work harder on this than any other single area as that is the most important area from our point of view. We want you to come back soon and thank you for such a wonderful review. Scott & Julie

The Carriage House provided everything we needed- down to coffee, paper towels, dish soap and filtered water! Recently remodeled, the kitchen and baths are very modern, yet the house has lots of charm. Scott was very friendly and available if we needed him. Very clean. Lots of closet space. Would definitley recommend it.

Owner's Response: It was a delight to meet and listen to Ruby and her friends and I thank all of them for their helpful suggestions. I just put a new shelf/towel rack in the back bathroom so guests have more space to place everything. I am in the process of making the same type of shelf/towel rack for the primary bath as well. I always welcome helpful comments as to how I can improve the unit for a better stay for everyone. As always I hope they will come back soon.

We, 4 seniors, stayed at the Carriage House for 4 nights. It has about everything you can ask for. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds were great. The kitchen was recently updated and had all the bells and whistles. The whole house was spic and span. Scott, the owner, made us feel very much at home. We toured the Whiskey Trail and the Carriage House is ideally located for that. Scott is also a great source of information and recommendations that we found all to be spot on. All was as advertised or better.
The local restaurants, all within walking distance, were excellent and reasonably price, just as Scott advised. If we had one criticism it would be that there were no IU basketball memorabilia to be seen but we rectified that before we left, sorry Scott. Book The Carriage House and you will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: For some unknown reason I have misplaced the IU memorabilia that was left behind. Maybe I should put up some SEC conference pictures but wait...IU is not in the SEC. I am glad that a good time was had by all and look forward to your returning to enjoy the southern hospitality real soon. As always be safe in your travels, Scott & Julie C.
