Cool charm in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I'm originally from Louisville and recently had the joy of spending more than 2 weeks back "home" for Derby. I needed a great location but also wanted a slice of hometown charm and an inviting place to entertain friends while I was there. Wow, this cottage was a homerun! It's brimming with cool design while maintaining its warm late Victorian character (great job, Greg and Eric - who, by the way, are entirely delightful!). It is within walking distance of many fabulous eateries (and "drinkeries"). Parking was never a problem and the neighbors were so nice (it was a quiet neighborhood as well). In 5 minutes, you can drive downtown or hit the interstate to connect to the rest of Greater Louisville. The cottage was well equipped, clean and obviously maintained with a lot of love. Whenever I travel back to the Ville, I'll always stay here! Thanks, Greg and Eric!

Excellent stay

This charming rental home was as advertised. Clean, neat and conveniently-located, it'll be somewhere I'll stay again if I find myself back in the Louisville area.

Awesome space, location, and hosts.

  • 5 of 5

The space is well-represented by the photos online, and the neighborhood is quaint, friendly, and totally within walking distance to one of the greatest neighborhoods in Louisville. Eric and Greg were very easy-going, helpful, and warm, willing to work with us on a midnight arrival and still have fun and helpful suggestions for our stay. If I were to move to Louisville, I would try to get them to rent this place to me long-term.

We travelled to Louisville from Minnesota to visit family. The location was great and the home was awesome. The owners responded quickly to emails and were very accommodating. Parking was always available close to the home. I will definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Louisville.

Perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I recently stayed in the home. Very well appointed, comfortable, great location and great owners. Being from Louisville, I was in town visiting family and found this the ideal "decompression zone". Would recommend wholeheartedly and stay again.
