About Brenda Oldfield

My husband and I love to fish and boat on the Kentucky River as well as enjoy the many country side beauties of our scenic state. Entertaining our family and friends with southern style hospitality is very important to us. We also love people and want to provide a place for others to experience the beauty of the outdoors and nature.

Brenda Oldfield purchased this Cottage in 2005

Why Brenda Oldfield chose Fayette County

We purchased this three acre piece of property to have easy access to the river for boating and fishing. Though the house needed to be completely remodeled and the surrounding area cleaned, the view was overwhelmingly beautiful and made all the hard work worth it. The property is located 10 minutes from Lexington and 1 mile from Exit 99 of I-75 off of Ky 2328, so it is easy for visitors to locate when traveling in the scenic Bluegrass.

What makes this Cottage unique

We love to stay at this property as the accommodations are private facing the Kentucky River with a spring-fed waterfall and stairs leading the the river's edge for easy access to fishing and boating. It is very relaxing for us to unwind in the gazebo hot-tub which looks out over the river or just sit on the deck and enjoy all of natures wonderful sounds.

The house is broken up into three separate apartments, which gave us each some private space, but also has good space for gathering in the middle apartment and on the expansive porch and huge yard. The view of the Kentucky River was a real plus, and we enjoyed playing horseshoes and cornhole. The neighborhood was very quiet (except maybe for us). Internet worked great. We didn't try the hot tub or the TV. We had a great time at the Proud Mary BBQ restaurant right up the road. Also, the property owner was very responsive to questions and requests.

                                                                  Michele S.

                                                                  Besides the quaint cottage being a perfect fit for our extended-family visit (5 adults, 5 kids), Ralph & Brenda treated us to a boat ride on the river, fishing and stories of the area. Tranquil view of the river and palisades for the grown ups. Big yard to run and hot tub for the kids. We found plenty of family-friendly activities in a 2 to 60 minute radius -- Kentucky Horse Park, Boonesbough State Park and Shaker Village. Dinner at Proud Mary's is a must. So much more to see in the area. Hope to be back again soon.

The property is very easy to get to from the interstate and there is so much room on the property for activities. I would highly recommend this place to anybody looking for somewhere in the area.
