We are so excited to offer America's Barn to be shared and enjoyed by our guests. It has been our dream for years to be able to share our gorgeous and unique property that we have owned for over 15 years. We hope you find your time with us to be relaxing and rewarding.

We love the convenience of this location. We are near ALL areas of interest and/or need: museums, sports venues ,fairgrounds, airport and medical center complex.
We are in a VERY convenient location but as you turn in the drive the metropolitan access is left behind and the rural beauty becomes the focus. There is complete privacy as well as the feel of 'country' living.
The beauty of wildlife, fruit trees, and the sounds of chickens help you to feel very removed from the 'city' life.
I cannot thank you enough for the amazing hospitality you both showed to David and I. Your cabin was the perfect setting for our romantic getaway. All of the little extras and niceties show just how much you truly care about the comfort of your guests. We really could not have asked for anything more! The fully stocked kitchen with all the yummy food was over the top! I've never had brown eggs before, now I'm hooked! We will definitely be back! Thanks so much.
Would give this cottage more stars if I could. Marquetta and Jerry have thought of everything to make their guests feel right at home .From greeting us in the driveway we knew we had found a place we would visit again and again. Once inside the cottage we were blown away by the cleanliness and the immediate coziness we felt. The furnishings were beautiful and every amenity you can think of was already in place. Unfortunately we were only able to stay one night ...... but we will definitely go back and be sure to stay longer !!
My husband and I had the most wonderful and peaceful anniversary that we've ever had. The Cottage was cleaner and neater than any hotel we've ever stayed in. Every little detail was perfectly and strategically placed. The pool in it's self was absolutely marvelous and relaxing. This is a place we will definitely try to stay at least once a year. Hats off to Marquetta and Jerry. You have provided the most romantic getaway ever possible.
We stayed here for three days after completing the Bourbon Trail. What a wonderful place to relax after 2.5 crazy days! Jerry and Marquetta are wonderful hosts who make you feel right at home the moment you arrive. We fell in love with this area of Kentucky and would absolutely stay here again. Having everything you need in the fridge to make your own breakfast was HUGE!!! The covered porch sitting area was relaxing, peaceful and a great place for morning coffee. The cabin is clean and comfortable. Thanks Jerry and Marquetta for being a part of such a memorable vacation for us :)
Jerry&Marquetta; We cannot express how wonderful it was staying in the barn. All the little things you supplied was so thoughtful. We loved all of it even the rooster crowing. We will most definitely try to get back again soon. Bob & Lyn. PS we are still laughing about my adventure that night, Lyn
We can't say enough good things about America's Barn. Jerry and Marquetta were wonderful hosts, and very welcoming, providing much more than expected. This cottage is so comfortable and cozy, we felt very much at home. The pictures do not do justice to this exceptional place. We spent a marvelous week in Louisville celebrating our anniversary and would have loved to be able to stay longer. Our hosts were very helpful in providing suggestions for activities and sights in the area. This was by far one of our very favorite vacations. Should we find ourselves coming to the area again, we would certainly return to the barn.
10 amazing days here was still not long enough! We enjoyed every single minute so much. From the conference days to our vacation/tourist days, this was such and warm and cozy home away from home. Thanks so much for all the special touches, the friendly welcome and all the great suggestions. We have enjoyed every square inch from the hot tub to grilling & eating outside. If we every find ourselves back in the area, this is exactly where we want to lay our heads at night.
We are located near Churchill Downs, University of Louisville Belknap Campus as well as Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium, KFC Yum Center, 4th Street Live, KY Fair and Expo Center, Louisville Zoo, Mega Cavern, Waverly Hills (ghost hunting) and many other City attractions.
