Overview

Lexington Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment with next kitchen and beautiful garden

We bought this 1948 home in December 2013. We renovated the downstairs apartment and rented it right away. Then we decided to renovate and furnish the upstairs apartment for vacation travelers to Lexington. It is gorgeous and close to Lexington's growing downtown scene! In fact, it is only steps away from Jefferson Street, Lexington's newest entertainment district, with bars, a brewery, restaurants and an upscale wine bar.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Teri Kelly

We bought this c. 1948 house in December 2013 and renovated it in the Spring of 2014. We've had such success sharing our own homes that we decided to list the upstairs apartment as a designated vacation rental. We completely renovated the kitchen and the bath while preserving all of the historic details. We used

Teri Kelly purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Teri Kelly chose Lexington

The home is located in Lexington's second and largest neighborhood on beautiful West 3rd Street. The neighborhood has undergone a transformation in recent years while maintaining it's historic charm. There are many restaurants, breweries, bars and shops opening throughout.

We have a heart for historic preservation (this is our ninth) in downtown Lexington and this is our first short-term rental. We are excited to meet the guests who visit our charming and comfy apartment and welcome them to our hometown.

What makes this apartment unique

The garden is incredible. Not being talented gardeners ourselves, we feel incredibly lucky that a landscape architect rented one of the apartments for several years before we bought the house in December, 2013. He spent several thousand hours and hundreds of dollars creating an English garden of winding paths and full, lush beds. It is peaceful and a piece of paradise right downtown. All we had to do was dig it since he had moved out and it was neglected for several years.

The furnishings have been culled from area estate sales over the past year. The resulting look is a contemporary renovation, with vintage furnishings.

Teri and her husband have spent a few nights there when their own home is rented, and have absolutely loved it. We are confident our guests will too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Judith was a fabulous guest. The apartment was in good hands and I love the way she really dove into seeing as much of Lexington as possible, because I am proud of my hometown and love to share it. VRBO is a perfect means of doing this, plus I get to refurbish old houses which is my first love. It also helps me to meet the nicest people!



I highly recommend an automatic accept if you are lucky enough to have Judith interested in your property.

Spectacular home in historic Lexington

  • 5 of 5
Wow, I can't say enough good things about our experience staying here. Modern appliances and tasteful furnishings, historic character, great beds, perfect location in walking distance to so much of what Lexington has to offer. And the owners are so responsive -- we had a lightbulb that went out and it was replaced within hours. Don't miss the Monday night Woodsongs Radio Hour at the Lyric Theater, or the Town Branch Distillery, or the great restaurants -- and the Horse Museum is no more than 15 minutes away. Come to Lexington and stay here! You will never forget it!

Owner's Response: Oh, thank you SO much, Judith! Delena and I love to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stays. After your experience we put a box of light bulbs in the attic so there would be no delay when bulbs go out.

We can't take credit for the great neighborhood or how wonderful our city is, it's just a lucky thing we get to call Lexington our home town.

please come again soon...we are working on an abandoned distillery downtown that we would love to show you!

Thank YOU!!

Teri

Terrific apartment in Lexington

  • 5 of 5
This apartment has been very well appointed. It is lovely, comfortable and has anything you might need. Everything is brand new and the owners have obviously put a lot of love and attention to detail into making the place welcoming. I am a stickler for a comfortable bed and this place had them; both very comfortable. The location is terrific, too! Top notch restaurants and shops in walking distance. I stayed 10 days and didn't want to leave...I felt very at home.

Comfortable apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5
Our family was traveling to Lexington and needed a place to stay for 5 weeks. This apartment was perfect! It was furnished with all the necessities we needed to make our stay comfortable and was definitely a home away from home. The living room and kitchen are cheerful, warm and welcoming. Both bedrooms are very spacious, cozy and quiet. The bathroom is bright and very functional (great shower and water pressure!). The laundry area is a nice bonus. It is in a convenient location in downtown Lexington within walking distance to many attractions. We walked daily to eat (a few favorites: North Lime Coffee & Donuts, Doodles, Stella's), UK, Lexington Center, etc.
