Two 40 something owners - one an art director, the other an Human Resource executive - who fell in love with the house because it reminded them of travels in New Orleans.

Eric Miller purchased this house in 2002

Great, diverse, historic neighborhood, with access numerous amenities and close proximity to all areas of town.

Wonderful access to nature, historic architecture, downtown, shopping, bars, etc.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY! GREAT LOCATION! BEAUTIFUL HOME! WONDERFUL OWNERS!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I, stayed for 5 nights. The home is located, just 5mins. from tons of restaurants & local shops (BTW,Molly Malone's is great for lunch:) The house is perfect for couples & families & Is decorated beautifully (We loved the skylight in the shower:) Quiet neighborhood & no noisy cars or people at night, but same 5 mins. distance to some great bars & nightlife, so you get the best of both worlds! Whether you want a peaceful & private getaway or want to live it up, this house is the place to stay! The owners, were very welcoming! They were there to do the walkthrough & then back to check you out, but will happily take a call to answer any questions you may have, during your stay! We will never have to wonder where we will stay, next time we're in Louisville- This place is it!

DELIGHTFUL COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
The cottage is very comfortable, quiet,charming and well-equipped. We would definitely stay here again as its location close to Cherokee Road is perfect for getting around Louisville. The house has two large bedrooms and an updated bathroom with lots of towels. The washer/dryer is another great convenience.
Greg and Eric are extremely flexible with arrival and departures times, making it very easy for us since we were driving.

A WONDERFUL WEEK!!

  • 5 of 5
A friend and I stayed at this lovely Louisville home and are so glad we did!! The location is awesome and convenient to downtown and Cherokee Park and all sorts of cool restaurants and bookstores, so convenience was a nice factor. Even better, the house was delightful and such a nice place to come home to! Loved sitting outside on the patio listening to the birds in the morning. Greg and Eric were right there when we arrived and helped us settle in and started our vacation out right. If I ever come back to Louisville, I will stay here again!

FABULOUS HOME CONVENIENTLY LOCATED TO ALL THAT LOUISVILLE OFFERS!

  • 5 of 5
A friend and I shared this rental for a girl’s getaway weekend to explore Louisville. The owners were responsive and friendly and upon arrival, gave us a personal tour of the property, explaining all the wonderful details and philosophies behind the home’s interior design. We found the home to be spacious and thoughtfully appointed with mid-century furnishings, décor, and art. The kitchen was conveniently stocked with many extras and pleasant to use. The beds and linens were outstanding, the sound system top notch, and the book selection never ending. The home’s location was within an easy distance on foot or bike to most of the city’s attractions and eclectic neighborhoods. During our visit we took in the downtown/waterfront area, enjoyed the many restaurants on Frankfort Ave and Bardstown, shopped the galleries and stores within the East Market District, toured the beautiful Cherokee Park, and biked through Old Louisville. We thoroughly enjoyed this charming city and our stay in this beautiful home and are very much looking forward to a return visit!

IMPECCABLY COOL

  • 5 of 5
There is so much to like about this place! The eclectic modern decor is all well done and everything is spotless. The two bedrooms are equally spacious and well-appointed so it would work great for two couples. There is a wall of excellent books to peruse that includes local topics (Louisville history, etc) and a wide mix of interesting reads. The kitchen has a giant chalkboard on the wall marked up with local eateries the owners recommend, most of which you can walk a few quiet neighborhood blocks to get to. Downtown Louisville is also easy to get to by driving 10 minutes on city streets.

The nice thing about a good VRBO rental is you wind up feeling immersed in a neighborhood rather than stacked up with other visitors in a hotel and this place definitely has that magic.

If we had to pick a favorite feature, the corner bakery down the block might win. It's a fantastic place for an interesting breakfast, lunch, or coffee break!

We were surprised by the backyard patio area which has a nice private and cozy feel to it. Great place to relax and get some morning sun or if you feel like venturing further outside head over to Cave Hill Cemetery or Cherokee Park which are both very scenic places for a walk.

Highly recommend this place and hats off to the owners who are super friendly and welcoming and are doing a great job!
