Property description

LAST MINUTE SPECIAL: Bookings 10 days or less in advance 15% off your rate!

Old Louisville is one of the nation's premier Historic Preservation Districts. This 3800 square foot late Victorian brick home is perfectly situated within it: Less than 2 miles from Churchill Downs, 1 mile from fabulous live theater, performing arts center and entertainment district, 2 miles to the convention center and 5 miles from the airport. The Old Louisville neighborhood is noted for it's graceful mansions, vibrant October Art Fair and central location.
The home's exterior remains historically accurate, but the inside has been updated . All five bedrooms have 32" flat screen televisions and there is house wide wifi. There three queen and two double bedrooms. All beds are made with 400 thread count all cotton sheets, stylish spreads or duvets and four pillows per bed. Bathrooms are fully stocked with quality cotton towels and liquid hand soap.

The common areas include a gracious entry hall, comfortable living room and a fully equipped kitchen. Pots, pans, dishes, cutlery and glassware are all supplied.

Home rental includes two historic zone parking passes which enable parking directly curbside.


This home is perfect for visitors to the Kentucky Derby as Churchill Downs is less than 2 miles distant (shuttle to track is nearby as well). It is also a great spot for participants and trainers for the Ford Iron Man race which starts/ends at 4th Street Live and Waterfront Park. In addition, those coming to Louisville for Convention Center Events or Yum Center events will find this house closely situated to both! The St. James Art Fair draws 600,000 visitors to this neighborhood each October to view art from over 700 exhibitors. Enter less than a 1/2 block from this home.
In July, 'The Kentucky Shakespeare Festival' takes place in Central Park, about 2 blocks from the home. Enjoy free performances, a cash bar, snacks and musical entertainment before and after the shows. This year play is 'Much Ado About Nothing'. Also new this year is 'Movie Monday' in the park with free screenings in July and the first week of August.

New! An organin market 'The Root Cellar' has opened just two blocks from the home-- get the best in fresh produce and farm raised meats.
