About Amy Eirich
We moved to Louisville from the east coast and love this city for its sophisticated living with a healthy helping of southern hospitality!
Amy Eirich purchased this Estate in 2006
Why Amy Eirich chose Cherokee Seneca
We fell in love with Stonecote because it offers the best of everything! It is a rare find: a 5-acre equestrian estate in the heart of Louisville! The setting is absolutely beautiful at Stonecote (built c1920) and is a private, country-like retreat. The 50 x 25 ft heated pool (open seasonally - mid-May to mid-September) with shooting fountains is a great place for kids to play and the adults to relax on spring and summer evenings. Stonecote feels like a secluded, private park and is a perfect setting for many different occasions. The historic, hometown feel of Louisville makes it a great place to visit…any time of the year.
What makes this Estate unique
Stonecote has great flow for entertaining and a large, chef's kitchen (making it perfect for fundraising and other catered events), and plenty of room to gather, as well as ample areas to 'get away'.

Perfect Venue for family
Stonecote Estate is a wonderful, perfect venue for family. I planned a retirement party for my husband in Louisville and needed room for our family from 8 states to gather. This house is large and accommodating. It has a huge kitchen and several large areas to congregate. The owner and staff were quick to respond to any questions or concerns.
A perfect place for a large group!
We had a group of 15 for my bachelor party, and Stonecote was the perfect base for the Bourbon Trail. Amy was there when we arrived, and was nice enough to give us a full tour of the house. She left us with a great welcome basket as well! The common areas are roomy, and the house was very clean. We'll have to come back when it's warmer so that we can use the pool! Thanks so much, Amy!
Beautiful historic home and easy stay
We had a great long weekend in Louisville staying in this beautiful old home with all the room and charm for such a big group. We were set up and taken care of as needed (thanks to Pete, the on-site property caretaker) and took advantage of all the space, incredible kitchen and dining room, grounds and swimming pool. Thanks to our hosts for making the booking, check in and stay so smooth and comfortable.
"Best vacation ever"
Our stay at Stonecote was everything we were hoping for. This was a special occasion as we were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary and my sister's birthday. We had families from Ct, NY, Ia, DC and and Ga. (17 adults and 11 children, ages 15 to 8 months). There was enough space for everyone for eating, sleeping, playing and just being together. One of the children described it as "the best vacation ever". The property manager was most helpful and great to work with. I would definitely recommend Stonecote to anyone wanting a beautiful and relaxing place to stay.
We are so happy to have been a part of making happy family memories!!
Wedding Long Weekend in Louisville
Stonecote was a wonderful home for our family and friends to converge upon for the family wedding weekend. Perfectly situated across the street from the wedding venue! We were comfortable, with plenty of space for all and the pool was a wonderful retreat during the hot afternoon hours. Would recommend this!
Perfect Family Gathering Place
This house was absolutely perfect for our family. We had a family reunion and the pool and beautiful front yard was perfect for the cousins to play. We couldn't have asked for a better house for our group as there was plenty of room for everyone. Our local family loved the house and neighborhood. It couldn't have worked out better and everyone was so accommodating to any of our requests. Thank you so much for making our little vacation a great memory for all of us.
