Terrific, comfortable house and yard -- great location too!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at this house two times and both have been very enjoyable. The house is comfortable and cozy; the yard is lovely. Being so close to the KY Horse Park is a big bonus for us. I would recommend this house to others.

Clean, comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 adults in town for the Keeneland race track. This house was about 10-15 minutes from the track. It is on a busy road, but has a large fenced in back yard which is much more private. Lots to do and see in Lexington - horse farms, bourbon tours, and the whole area looks like it has been professionally landscaped.

House is well equipped and very clean. Master bathroom is great, hall bathroom has some water issues. Would stay here again if we are back in the area.

Don't judge a book by its cover!

  • 4 of 5

We booked this home as a Thanksgiving halfway meeting place with our daughter who lives in Atlanta. We have two dogs (one is a Newfoundland) and she has one. I'm glad I took the advice of another reviewer and actually looked at the pictures of the inside. This house with the fenced back yard was perfect for our purposes. We did not need to worry about the dogs since the backyard was fenced. It was clean and had everything we needed to cook Thanksgiving dinner. We happened to read about the Southern Lights drive through Christmas light display at the nearby KY Horse Park. It was the highlight of our trip! We stopped for BBQ at the "joint" down the street that is walking distance- no sidewalks and very busy road so we stopped in our way back from KY Horse Park. Quick drive to Univ of KY for a walk around campus and downtown Lexington attractions including ice skating. We may comeback to do the Bourbon Trail.

Great proximity to KHP!

  • 5 of 5

Nice house, well maintained. Kitchen had everything we needed and grill was right out back. Space allowed gathering at the kitchen table or spreading out on (comfy) couch for quiet TV time and never felt crowded. Road out front is a busy road but really don't hear the traffic from inside. The BBQ place that is literally walking distance down the street is REALLY good. Very convenient to the KHP. Owner nice to work. We plan to stay here again!

Central Location

  • 4 of 5

The house was cozy & comfortable. We cooked just about every night during our stay & had everything we needed to do so. It was centrally located to all the places we wanted to visit during our stay. The owner was very helpful & responded in a quick and timely manner. We would recommend this rental as a great place to stay especially if you want to be close enough to the action without being directly in it. Also, it was awesome to have horses directly across the street, they are quite beautiful & this house is located in the midst of horse country.
