Great time at stone cottage!
Great time at stone cottage!
We came to stay for 4 days for a friends wedding......The side we stayed in was perfect for us......very private, close to any and everything. Great yard for our dog, she enjoyed going up and down the stairs to the basement. This place had everything you might need, including wireless internet access. We would definitely stay here again! Great getaway for anybody wanting some peace and quiet. Well worth the price! Thanks, Mark!!!

We stayed for 10 nights in the Stone Cottage. Had a wonderful time, came in every night after races at Keeneland, felt like home. This cottage has a very simple charm, all you need in a vacation home. If you are attending races at Keeneland, this is a fantastic loction, only 4 minutres with traffic, and major horse farms are close by as well. 5 minutes away is a great Kroger on Harrodsburg Rd,(Beaumont Shopping Center) you can pick up any item for tailgating or deli items such as roasted/fried chicken and sides. Good meat and seafood selection that was put to use as the cottage had gas and charcoal grills. We did not have a problem with the cottage. Mark the owner came by to check on us and he is wonderful to work with, told us the history of the cottage. My family and I will be back for the spring meet at Keeneland, and will be renting the Stone Cottage again. I recommend this property for any family or group to stay in when visiting Lexington.

Owner response: Thank You so very much... Your review summary sounds like the next Triple Crown Winner "Kentucky Charmer" What sweet and kind words and so eloquently said. I met the family and was very intrigued at how their vacation centered around the handicapping of Thoroughbreds which is there family fun time and time spent together as a family group. The ages ranged all the way from granddad to his daughter and her husband and the grandson too. I though it was really cool that playing the ponies held every ones interest across the age spectrum. Any group that can come to Lexington for 10 days straight and pick winners over and over must really know horses and the Keeneland Race Track as well. I am glad the cottage and its furnishings met your families needs and I truly look forward to your return next spring. I am thinking of changing the name of this rental from the Stone Cottage to "The Kentucky Charmer" as it truly sounds like a winner... Thanks for Picking "The Kentucky Charmer". Sincerely, Mark Whaley

Pet friendly--needs work
Good location and a huge, unfenced yard for the dog to run. The yard was peaceful and had a little creek, resident bunny, occasional mallards, and lots of moles. Laundry facilities and kitchen were fine. The bathroom needs updating and the place needed serious freshening up--lighting was dim; mattresses and linens were old; dressers drawers needed cleaning. I wouldn't call it charming, but it's a decent place to leave your dog and stuff while you're out. Mark, the caretaker, is kind and accommodating.

Owner response: Thank you Laura for the kind words, we strive to provide our guests with a pleasant experience and do our very best to present a positive impression for our quests who visit Central Kentucky. The Stone Cottage is 13 miles from the Kentucky Horse Park and I know that was important for your family as you had a very busy agenda and limited amount of time. I am delighted to hear that your family felt at home and was pleased with the country atmosphere that the Cottage has to offer. I will look forward to your return to Lexington and thank you so very much for choosing the Stone Cottage. Sincerely, Mark

My schooling brought me to Lexington from Nebraska to complete a clinical rotation in town. I am so pleased to say that when I saw the cottage inside and out the pictures online don't do it justice, it was absolutely amazing! I brought my travel buddy, Tucker (yorkie), with me and there was plenty of room for him to play and chase rabbits in the yard! Mark was absolutely wonderful, any questions I had he answered and offered suggestions to local attractions as I would be staying for some time. I can't thank him enough for his wonderful hospitality, it was very nice to know he was only a phone call away! The location is great, just minutes from shopping, grocery, restaurants, and New Circle Road which made getting around a piece of cake. This was a great place to stay, everything I needed was at the cottage, and it felt like home coming back from work everyday. Thanks again Mark, I really appreciate it, Tucker too! :)

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY!

We rented the Stone Cottage from Mark as we were attending the Rolex Three Day Event at the Kentucky Horse Park. The accommodations were just as they are described, and Mark was great to work with. The house was large and was equipped with all that a person would need to make the visit comfortable. There were plenty of linens, and kitchen amenities, as well as a good size yard and patio. The home is just minutes from the airport making our very early morning flight bearable. We are just a couple of miles from groceries, restaurants, and entertainment. It was about 15 minutes from the Kentucky Horse Park, making our travels a breeze. We are involved in Pony Club, and the National Pony Club hosts the National Competition in Lexington every three years. I recommend this property to any club member. You can trust Mark to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable.

My wife and I went down to Lexington for keeneland races with are small dogs. The stone cottage is a nice little home away from home. We had everything thing we needed while staying. Enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location. Very close to Keeneland. Are small dogs enjoyed the large back yard. The owners were wonderful and answered all questions I had. Will be coming back!

Owner response: It was a pleasure having you as guests. Being EMT's I know that you and your wife need an occasional break from the stress that goes along with being a first responder and saving lives. We were delighted to provide the Cottage as a Keeneland retreat. Please contact us anytime. You will always be welcome at the Stone Cottage. Mark
Christmas stay in Lexington
Christmas stay in Lexington
We stayed in the cottage while visiting our son in Lexington over Christmas. The house is great. They even provided a Christmas tree for our stay which was great on Christmas morning when we opened presents. It is a great place to stay and very convenient for multiple places in Lexington as it right off New Circle Road.

Owner response: It was nice to have Byron and his family stay with us over Christmas. His sons house was very close to the cottage and he had booked his dates very early in the season. I wanted Byron's family to have a nice Christmas Holiday so I set the tree up complete with lights as it sets the proper mood for such an occasion. If you should decide to return to KY for a visit please remember the Stone Cottage as we sincerely appreciate your business and look forward to hearing from you anytime. Mark
We stayed at the Stone Cottage over Thanksgiving. We were able to prepared our Thanksgiving meal there and went to the the UK game on Saturday. The yard was peaceful and was a great place for my sons to throw a football, and for our dog to run. The location is very easy to get to and conveniently located to Lexington attractions. The owner is extremely helpful and easy to get in contact with. It was a nice place to stay.

About the owner: We have owned and enjoyed the property for over twenty years, it is a great place to relax and get away from it all. The natural area where the spring is located attracts various types of wild life. We really enjoy feeding the ducks and when the babies hatch out each spring it is a wonderful feeling to be able to treat the little ducklings to there first crumbs of bread. There is also a larger lake with fountains directly across the street named Saddle Club Lake. At certain times of the year both ducks and geese visit the property and the surrounding lakes ponds and streams, of which there are many in the area. The facility is quite nice and is located in an upscale, peaceful rural neighborhood. We feel confident that you will enjoy The Stone Cottage and Calumet Spring and the quiet natural environment.
Why the Owner Chose Lexington:
The Stone Cottage is located in Lexington and is close to the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland and the Red Mile. You will love the location and the detailed stone work and the rural setting. The property is situated across the street from Saddle Club Lake and the Fountains. This makes for a pleasant view as you drive home. You will also enjoy the wild critters that come to visit the spring that is on the grounds in the back yard. In this hectic world Calumet Spring provides the proper setting to unwind and relax in a private tranquil setting. Gas grill and private patio makes the back yard fun and enjoyable.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Great location is close to all attractions. The trees in the yard are quite large and mature. They provide adequate shade on hot sunny days. The brick patio is a very private area and is equipped with lawn furniture and a out door gas grill. Guests will also appreciate the wildlife, rabbits, squirrels and the song birds that frequent Calumet Spring to drink and bathe. The colorful birds fill the air with pleasant sounds, quite often it is like a winged symphony as there are so many birds singing and chirping during mating season. Every spring there is a new crop of baby ducks hatched out. Wild ducks come and go daily during the warmer months as they seem to like the fresh spring water. At certain times of the year we also have geese and an occasional Blue Heron that comes to visit the spring as well. The Stone Cottage is country living in the city of Lexington. If you like privacy and nature you will enjoy your visit to Calumet Spring and the woods / nature area of this three acre property. Lillie and Mark Whaley
