About Elizabeth

Both homes were built by the owners families and have been purchased back from current owners to remain in the family for the rest of time. There is so much history in both properties and we would be honored to share the entire story with you over a glass of wine.

Elizabeth purchased this estate in 1840

Why Elizabeth chose Kentucky

When given the chance to visit Kentucky, there is NO other spot to spend your time. The GlenLary estate IS Kentucky. From the historic antebellum home, to the 84 acres of rolling bluegrass and not to mention the Thoroughbred horses grazing in the pastures.

Great place to get away with the family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cabin and loved the layout. The view off the deck was gorgeous and was my favorite place to be. Lots of thought went into the layout as it was very functional and allowed for great family gatherings in the kitchen/great room area but also allowed my teenage daughters the ability to find space to themselves when they needed it. We were attending a Young Rider event that my oldest participated in and instead of roughing it at the barn and a hotel room, we had a luxurious and comfortable retreat to hang out in when horse and daughter weren't busy competing. Lounging by the pool, grilling some meals in the outdoor kitchen, and reading a book surrounded by natures beauty made this trip one to remember. The property has the feel of being in the country, but restaraunts and shopping are within a 20 minute drive allowing for a great variety in entertainment verses relaxation. Elizabeth, one of the members of the family that owns and runs the property, was very responsive and flexible to our needs even though she was on vacation with her own family at the time. Philip, who cares for the horses and watches over the property, was a pleasure to work with and talk to when anything came up that required his assistance. Whenever, I am in Lexington I will definitely try to stay at GlenLary again.

Top Score for the Rolex

  • 5 of 5

The GlenLary was the perfect accommodations for our group of equestrian riders to stay while attending the Rolex. The setting eludes the feel of an old historic plantation surrounded by bluegrass pastures. However, the homes have been updated with all the modern conveniences and the décor is tastefully done throughout. The gathering areas in both houses are especially charming, warm and cozy. The property is well maintained and clean both inside and out. The hospitality of the owners and their staff is top notch. Our only problem was that everyone loved the estate so much that they didn't want to leave to attend our scheduled events at the Horse Park!

We want to come back and stay longer next time.

The perfect setting for being together as a family

  • 5 of 5

GlenLary was every bit as charming as the pictures led us to believe. It provided the perfect setting for being together as a family without distraction. Beth was great about orienting me to each house. Everyone fell in love with Philip after he came over to teach us about the thermostat and fix the chirping smoke detector. He later took our family picture so we could all be in it.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We could not have picked a more perfect location to gather and celebrate the joy and love of family. We could feel the love your family has shared there which enriched our own.

Beautiful Bluegrass Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the estate do not do it justice. This is a beautiful property taken care of by endlessly nice and welcoming people. All of our guests were comfortable and happy to spend the weekend here. Also it was very affordable for the size of our family and I would absolutely return here.

Fabulous 50th Wedding Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

The Glenlary Estate was an excellent setting for our surprise, destination 50th wedding anniversary gathering for our parents and 20 family members. The historic main house was home to the romantic couple, where we prepared several dinners in the modern kitchen and conducted a ceremony to renew their vows by firelight. The large gathering area in the main house provided refuge for many card games and an intense ping pong tournament. The "cabin" has an absolutely incredible kitchen and a great deck for entertaining. We enjoyed long walks on the property with the picturesque company of the horses and the kids even went fishing in the stocked pond. While in the area we visited several great restaurants in Lexington, toured the Makers Mark and Woodford distilleries and even petted the 2013 Kentucky Derby winner at Claiborne Farms (10 minutes away). When we needed anything the staff onsite was attentive and very helpful. We would especially like to thank Elizabeth (owner) for her tips on local bakeries, restaurants and attractions. Her personal touch and thoughtful recommendations contributed to a truly memorable event that the entire family will never forget. We highly recommend a visit to the Glenlary Estate in Paris, KY if you have a large group that wants to get away and spend some quality time together.
