Overview

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, historical 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.

Stunning accommodations on beautiful land! We are still dreaming about the Kentucky bluegrass!

  • 5 of 5

The space was welcoming, clean and comfortable. The beds were comfortable and we felt right at home. We cooked several meals and had everything we needed in the kitchen. But the most incredible part of this experience was the farm itself. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the mini horse and donkeys just outside. We also loved seeing the mares and spring foals and feeding them carrots. Steve and Lisa were absolutely wonderful and are great hosts. Their land is beautiful and well tended. It was the perfect place for us to stay for a horse-themed trip to the Kentucky Horse Park. We hope to visit again next spring!

Clean, well provided with all the essentials, tastefully decorated. Owners were very accommodating and had cookies and fresh flowers awaiting us. The area is surrounded by beautiful horse ranches.

Perfect place to stay and visit the horse farms and go to the races.

  • 5 of 5

Steve and Lisa were very nice. We have stayed in many rentals over the years. This one was by far and away the cleanest. Very roomy, great location. The history of the building was great. Having horses on the farm was amazing. The foals were so cute. Being able to see them and pet them made our vacation very special. We can't say enough about the rental. It's perfect.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful setting. The accommodations were more than we could have expected. Lots of room, very clean, all the amenities and appliances to cover our needs, and was extremely comfortable. Flowers and cookies (yum yum) greeted us when we arrived, and the donkeys and pony in the pasture next door came over to greet us and ask to be petted. I would recommend this property to anyone who is visiting in the area, as long as you don't book it when we want it!

Lovely, comfortable, and relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I recently visited Kentucky for the first time. We could not have found a better place to stay. Steve and Lisa are great hosts - they greeted us upon arrival, and had fresh flowers and cookies waiting in the rental. The train station is quite unique and beautiful. We didn't want for anything during our stay. The farm is calming, and stresses of everyday life disappear. The country is so beautiful with the rolling hills, fences and horses. Though you are in the country, places to eat, shop and tour are nearby. And if you want to just spend time away from it all, there is no better place to take a stroll or look into the eyes of a soul-catching horse or two. I can't wait to visit again.
