Guestbook comments from the owner

This house was perfect for a short getaway from the city. I was so blown away by how beautiful the views are since the pictures from the listing do not do it justice. When we first pulled up to the property we were greeted by her adorable dogs, chickens, & her horse! We were given a thorough tour of the house and Janet gave us great recommendations on where to go around the area. The house had everything we needed to make us feel at home. Full kitchen, tv room, gorgeous bed & bathroom. Plus the balcony has a grill and the view is absolutely breathtaking. The location of the property is perfect for anyone looking for tranquility & peace and I recommend visiting the charming town with lots of cute stores and restaurants. Thank you Janet & Brian for being so accommodating and allowing us to stay in your gorgeous home.

The Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The carriage house at Twin Maple Farm is absolutely the best place we've ever stayed! It is equipped with anything and everything you might need during your stay. It has such a peaceful and quiet ambiance . . . truly a home away from home! Blue and Winston were delightful and were accommodating to allow our dog to help them "guard the area" every once in a while. Our cocker spaniel had never seen a horse and thought Jasper was a bit intimidating. She didn't know what to think of the chickens. We loved the whole experience!

We would rate our stay as an A+ and highly recommend it to rest, relax, and rejuvenate! Thank you, Janet and Brian!

Will definitely keep this on our list!

A Much Needed Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the carriage house for a couple of nights for some friends. They reported it was a great place to stay in a time when they much needed a bright, clean place. Janet was quick to respond so that we could make this happen in a short amount of time. Much thanks to her. If we ever head to Lexington, I know where we will stay.

Great Stay

We found the carriage house to be clean and exactly as described. Janet and Brian were so eager to ensure we had a wonderful stay.

Beautiful views in a rural setting close to Downtown Lexington, wineries, places of interest, and I64. A great place to stay and would strongly recommend.
