About the property

Farmhouse, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Come stay in our newly renovated 1890's train station in the heart of the bluegrass.

We are on a working thoroughbred horse farm right off Paris Pike, one of the most scenic areas in all of Central Kentucky. Drive by Gainsway and Elemendorf farms on the way to Claiborne farm. 15 minutes to the Kentucky Horse Park, Fasig Tipton, close to Keeneland and the Lexington area attractions.

Hutchison Station was part of the L&N railroad system between 1890-1950, it still has the original hardwood floors, 12' ceilings and much of the original molding. In its heyday it included a post office, livestock loading platform, general store and blacksmith's shop. You can read more about the station house in 'Ghost Railroads of Kentucky'. Many of the original families still live in the area.

Area activities include a 9 hole golf course within walking distance, and a short drive to many 18 hole courses, horse farm tours, historicl sites including Shakertown, Mary Todd Lincoln House, Henry Clay Estate, Civil War battlefields and much more.

We have easy access to I75 & I64 and are located 1/2 way between Lexington and Paris.

Relaxing and breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

When you live in southern Louisiana where land is flat, temperatures are hot, humidity is 100%, coming here is remarkable! This 2 bedroom house has everything you need. It is clean, roomy and beds are comfortable. The scenery is beautiful with horses and pastures all around. This time of year is perfect being able to see fouls on the ground. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hate to leave. Close enough to city life but definitely off the path. The owners are adorable people and allowed us to walk up and down their property to see the horses and trees, etc. I would come back in a second!! Thanks Steve and Lisa Parkes.

We took a private tour with Unbridled Horse Tours". Ask for Nancy Hapgood. We even had a chance to go behind the gates st the race track. Loved everything about this trip!!! I recommend this 2 bedroom house to anyone. They also have another house for rent adjoining this one. Awesome awesome awesome

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the rental was great. It's super clean, looks brand new and the location is great. The owners were very helpful and had fresh roses and cookies on the counter when we arrived. I am sure we will be staying here again and highly recommend it to anyone traveling in the area.

Beautiful, clean, and unique!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the renovated train station for a small Bible study retreat. The train station was absolutely gorgeous! The owner was nice and accommodating. The atmosphere is lovely! Everything was neat and clean. The high ceilings were very unique and made the apartment feel huge inside. We fully enjoyed our stay and recommend this place highly!

All of the best things here!

  • 5 of 5

My college friend and I stayed here for a week. The location is convenient although feels away from it all. We loved drinking coffee and watching the horses run in their pastures. They donkeys greeted us every time we walked to our cars. The place itself is beautiful without being fussy. We felt at home here. We ate a lot of our meals in and always enjoyed our drives into Lexington with all of the beautiful horse farms. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a special time away.

Great, relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here in Paris. We loved the house. Everything was spotless. The beds were comfortable. The decor was fabulous! We had everything we needed for our stay. Steve met us when we arrived to be sure everything was perfect. And, it was, down to the fresh baked cookies and fresh flowers on the dining table! I would recommend this home to anyone in the area. We were on a short vacation to visit some distilleries, and we happy to call this home.
