Best of both worlds!

  • 5 of 5

The property was absolutely lovely, it had everything we could need and the pool table was a hit with all of us! Some knock out battles most evenings! Travelling from the UK to meet our daughter and son-in-law in Ohio. We chose the house to be a holiday for us all and it was fantastic. SO peaceful and rural yet close to Louiseville and all the attractions. We couldn't have asked for better. Thanks to Lisa for allowing her lovely home to be used for others to enjoy.

Great Location with nice area to hang out in the evening

  • 4 of 5

We used this location as the base of operations for a tour of the Bourbon Trail. The house was in a great location - only 20 minutes from Louisville, 30 from Bardstown, and an hour from Lexington. We enjoyed the living room for relaxing and playing pool & card games in the evenings. Owners were very responsive to questions. Definitely would recommend to anyone traveling with a small group of friends.

Nice comfortable home on beautiful wooded lot

  • 5 of 5

Nice 2 bedroom home on a country-like wooded lot in a quiet area near edge of Louisville city limits. Only 15-20 minutes from downtown. Gas fireplace with pool table is nice touch too. Long driveway for lots of parking. Friendly owner with quick communication. Was great for a few days at Christmas time!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very neat well maintained house in a county setting but only 20 min to downtown Louisville and 15 min to the fairground and airport. My family and I truly enjoyed our stay. We watched the birds in the evening and played on the pool table to the early morning hours. Thanks so much for sharing your lovey home with our family. Mike and Lois

Country Living in the Country

  • 2 of 5

My family of four (two children ages 13 and 8) stayed here for a few days August 2015. I have given the property two stars because it was clean, comfortable and the owner is very nice. However, this house has the look, feel and smell of a grandmother's house. Also, the title is misleading. This house may be technically in the city of Louisville, but it is too far out to be called "city living". After staying here, I can honestly say that I did not feel like I was in Louisville at all. I do not recommend this property.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. I understand you are new to VRBO and it is apparent you did not look at our location or description prior to renting our home. You are correct in stating that our home is in the country. We do have deer and lots of birds in our back yard, as we state in our homes description. The pictures accurately depict our home. If you wanted a home in downtown Louisville that is were you should've stayed and not given our home a negative review. We do live in our home in the fall and I have never felt we were in "Grandmother's' Home". We love our home in Louisville and being in the city of Louisville yet in a county setting.

Very homey.

  • 5 of 5

It worked out great for our needs. Had students with us for SKILLS USA and gave them a place they could be together to work on their presentation for their competition. The location was off the beaten path and was nice to be out of the hub bub but still easy to get to Freedom Hall in a timely manner. Every thing we needed for our stay was there.
