A beautiful historic home in Lexington KY

The home is beautiful and there is plenty of parking. The owner was very responsive to any questions. The home is next to a biking/walking trail which was awesome!

Everything and more! We thoroughly enjoyed beauty of this historic home.

  • 5 of 5

While visiting The Ark Encounter, Creation Museum, and The Toyota factory, we took a risk and traveled out of our way to stay here. It was the best decision!! Four couples and all the room we needed and a ton of history. Definitely worth the extra distance to travel. Thank you Heather!

Beautiful historic house

  • 5 of 5

Convenient location to historic tour homes. Spacious accommodations with wonderful 18th and 19th century ambience. Nicely equipped kitchen, and ample bathroom space. Once inside, you forget that the house is sitting in a subdivision cul-de-sac. Fun to watch the bunnies out back, too! Perfect spot for history buffs!

A grand, beautiful historic home!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect! The house was grand and ornate and had so much history. It's the second oldest house in Lexington and you could spend hours just walking through and admiring all of the details of the home. We had a group of 12 people and had more than enough space for all of us. There are several different areas to hang out and socialize, so our group was able to either gather all together as one large group or to split off and have areas to hang out in smaller groups. The kitchen is better equipped than the one I have at home! Anything we needed was there already.

Heather, the owner, was fantastic! She responded immediately to any question we had and was very helpful and setting up our reservation and assisting us while we were there. She even shipped a suitcase home for one of our group members who forgot their suitcase there! That's going above and beyond. Thank you so much Heather. Service was amazing!

The Hart-Featherston House is the second oldest home in Central Kentucky, built by Nathaniel Hart in the late 1700s, and is close to everything Lexington has to offer! Whether you are coming to town for one of the numerous equestrian events, or just wanting to escape a busy lifestyle, this short-term rental can provide you with the quiet solace you need! Just a few miles from Keeneland Racetrack, Red Mile Racetrack, and Kentucky Horse Park, this location provides you a central location. The Hart-Featherston House is only minutes from downtown Lexington, which contains several local breweries and a very active nightlife. Rupp Arena is a mere six miles away and if you have not visited the shops and restaurants in the Chevy Chase area, it is a must-see. The Kentucky Bourbon Trail is very accessible, as is the scenic route of winding roads that leads through the large amount of beautiful horse farms all around the area. The old Squire Road has become a widely used hiking/walking/biking trail that begins right next to the driveway. You can enjoy some exercise by walking out the front door! Lexington is only 70 miles from Louisville, 25 miles to Frankfort, 90 miles to Cincinnati, OH, and 130 miles to Knoxville, TN.
