About Glenda

I love people and have hosted people from S.Korea to Australia and I love them all! I am a artist, mother of three adult daughters and foodie! I credit my daughters for introducing me to vegan food, Korean food, wine and an artist social life. My go to foods have always been steaks, BBQ and breakfast (I have tons of recommendations)! My guilty pleasures are watching Korean Dramas, Anime, Walking Dead, Bold & The Beautiful, and Scandal. Oh and I'm forever redesigning my properties!

Glenda purchased this house in 13

Why Glenda chose Louisville

I'm a person that loves to put my best foot forward and my vacation properties in Louisville & Harlan, KY are no exception. I (and family) take pride in our properties and we are responsive to our guests needs in intuitive ways. Since we are avid vacationers ourselves, we know what it takes to make every vacation a holiday. In a small town like Harlan we love to make you feel safe and welcome! I assure you that there is no other property that can compare to my four Harlan guesthouses.

As my grandmother would say “Good better best never let it rest until your good is better and your better is the best!”

All of our properties (in Louisville & Harlan Ky.) are fully furnished and have all the amenities of home!

What makes this house unique

My carriage house, is a private rentals, fully-furnished and fully-equipped home away from home (that is if your house is like a spa). My carriage house is within a 3.5 mile radius to all the Derby fun.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an awesome experience. Our hosts could not have been more friendly, kind, and thoughtful. The place was exactly as described and photographed. We would recommend this place to anyone staying in Louisville!

Lovely Property - Horrible Bed

  • 3 of 5

Great hosts! The Carriage House is centrally located. Very clean and nicely updated. Great TV, couch, kitchen and bathroom. The bed was small and the most uncomfortable bed I've ever attempted to slept on. We ended up sleeping on the couch because the mattress was too uncomfortable.

We loved the carriage house. It had everything we needed. Especially enjoyed sitting on the balcony enjoying coffee in the morning. Next time we are in Louisville we will be back! Thanks Faith & Glenda!

Great space, attentive hostess, urban oasis

  • 4 of 5

This property is AMAZINGLY beautiful! I rented it out for a small event, and everyone enjoyed the beauty and serenity of the location. The hostess was very attentive throughout the whole event, and made sure that everything was setup to our liking. I have not seen anything in Louisville like this location, and even long time residents of the city were surprised that I found this gem! It is the perfect spot for small weddings, celebrations, tea parties and more!

Amazing space in the heart of Louisville

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this amazing carriage house listing set in the heart of Louisville. The property is on a quiet street, ideally located to explore the city’s dining and entertainment offerings (Really enjoyed Harvest, Please and Thank You, and the Gralehaus). The description of the space is absolutely spot on…impeccably clean, well appointed, equipped with everything you’d need, and extremely comfortable. While the property is really something to see, nothing topped our hosts Glenda and Faith…they are just the best! Before, during and after our stay they did everything in their power to ensure we had an amazing experience! I cannot stress enough the hospitality these hosts offer is really extraordinary. I absolutely look forward to booking this space the next time I’m staying in Louisville!
