Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay immensely at the cottage on the farm in the Bluegrass state.

The website gave fantastic information and pictures - but the place was so stunning pictures could not do it justice. We probably were longer term renters than most on VRBO - as we were staying to recuperate from knee surgery.

The place is larger than one would expect for a one bedroom ( actually more like a 2 bedroom), lots of space indoors and outdoors. Michelle has thought of everything to make a short or longer stay pleasurable. The immediate surroundings are fantastic - a tree lined driveway leads you to the cottage surrounded by green rolling hills with lots of fantastically friendly exotic animals - gunner the camel becomes a pal immediately. There are too numerous to count short scenic drives surrounding the farm. But we enjoyed the immediate surroundings so much we rarely ventured over a few miles - however even though you seem "away from it all" - it is only a 5 minute drive to Lexington.

The Finks could not be better host - they will give you privacy - but we enjoyed chit chatting with them, always making sure we felt welcomed - even supplying us with home grown beef and garden treats.

Thanks to Michelle and Mike for a wonderful stay and hope to see you again in the future.

Tranquil & wonderful hidden treasure!

  • 5 of 5

What a hidden little gem of a place! It was peaceful and gorgeous. Much better than a hotel. Our group of 4 enjoyed our stay very much. We woke up each morning and watched the camels play with the zebra and donkey. It is set far back off the road so no traffic. I can't wait to stay there again.

Perfect spot for our visit!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on this unique and exotic farm. Our grandchildren who live in Lexington enjoyed visiting and playing on the swings, and they loved seeing all of the animals. Everything about the apartment was just right for us. We had morning coffee while watching the horses exercise. In the evening the little ones came over and played until sunset. All of the animals were very peaceful. What an idyllic setting. Thank you to the owners for providing us with a comfortable visit.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property was clean, well stocked with items we needed and it was so peaceful. We enjoyed all of the animals especially Jack, Gunner and the resident barn cat. Michelle was very welcoming and provided ideas for places we had not thought of visiting.

Great Property For Extended Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We found ourselves in an interesting situation - We had just moved to Lexington & were waiting for our new house to be completed. Our allotted corporate temporary housing was expiring and we had no furniture or belongings, a newborn and a toddler, & had no desire to stay in a hotel room for a month. We happened to come across Michelle & Mike's property and thought it would be a great fit. It offered two sleeping rooms with doors so that our toddler could have her own room. It also had a fully stocked kitchen and a washer & dryer. Their home made our lives so much easier during an already hectic and stressful time! Our toddler was obsessed with all of the stuffed animals inside & loved running around outside with the "real life" animals on the property. Her favorite thing was waking up and opening her blinds to see Gunner staring at her, chomping away on grass. The part of Lexington where this property is located is GORGEOUS. It is so peaceful & serene. We enjoyed just sitting on the patio at sunset throughout the month we were there. We can't thank Michelle & Mike enough. This is definitely an awesome property find on VRBO!
