Location, location, location. This property has the best setting of any we looked at in Louisville...that was the major reason why we purchased this home. We purchased Greystone in June 2011 and started renovating immediately. If Greystone is not in your budget plans, they can assist you with many other homes in Louisville in a wide variety of pricing ranges as well. They know you'll love a visit to Louisville, too! They've made it a point to have their homes in great settings to enjoy...and now you, their guests, can too! Email or call for details.
The setting is absolutely beautiful at Greystone, and feels very private. The 3 acre pond is a draw for Canadian Geese, ducks, Great Blue Heron, deer, turtles, etc. It has the feel of a beautiful private park and is a perfect setting for small weddings and receptions, church retreats, and of course family vacations and reunions. Greystone provides 4 on-site kayaks and a launching dock to enjoy our 3 acre pond, too. And...Louisville has a lot to offer!
I just wanted to drop you a quick note and let you know how much we enjoyed vacationing at Greystone this past weekend. You have a lovely home in a wonderful neighborhood. Our group had a wonderful time and we were thankful to have such a nice place to stay.
My friends and I had a great time in Louisville at the Greystone property. We came for Derby, and wanted a central location for everyone to stay while there. The house was as advertised and looked even better in person than in pictures. The owner was very responsive during the booking stages and while we were there. I would highly recommend this property for Derby weekend or otherwise!
Having read the reviews from all the previous travelers, I was expecting to find a great house. We did...it's even better than expected! What a setting and what a house...it has everything you could hope for for a family reunion and base for a weekend in Louisville. The beds were first rate, and the decor outstanding. I cannot say enough about the setting...the yard is to die for, and the owner provides four kayaks for enjoying the small lake, plenty of wood for the fire pit and great outdoor living. Again, first class all the way!
I took a group of FFA students to Greystone during the National FFA convention for this year. It is a very beautiful home and made us all feel like we were right at home. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone in the Louisville area in need of a home to stay in. They had made renovations to the home since our previous stay and they were all very nice!
Our family stayed in this beautiful home for a three-day family reunion. It was perfect for us. The view of the small lake and the grounds is stunning. There are lots of bedrooms with various sleeping options, the kitchen is modern and well equipped and the dining room accommodated all of us plus there were other tables for smaller groups to eat. There was so much to do from a small swing for toddlers to kayaks, a games room, movies, computers, and much more.
The house is a wonderful place, to stay. We are looking forward to the Kentucky Derby and staying in this exceptional retreat. Beautiful, with a water view. Everyone enjoyed staying and relaxing in this magical destination. Maintenance is excellent and so well kept! Great place for any event or gathering.
