While the kids and I enjoyed your home, we fully enjoyed the comfort of your home and hiking trails just down the road, what a blessing from Jesus, for us to have found a great place to vacation. Jn. 3:16

We Loved It

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect day for a visit with friends in Louisville. The house is fairly secluded and very clean. You truly feel like you're out in the country yet Louisville is only a 25 minute drive away. We're looking forward to staying again next year.
