Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We still live just a few miles away in Louisville with our 3 children. We had hoped to sell one of our 2 homes, but with the turn in the real estate market, we decided to share this magical place with visitors to Louisville.

Why the Owner Chose Louisville:
When we lived at this property we always felt like we were on vacation. It is just the most relaxing and magical place we ever lived. We fell in love with it the first time we drove up the long wooded driveway and have enjoyed so many good times with friends and family here. We know you will love it too and build your own memories in this oasis!

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
New furniture, beds, high quality linens & mattresses, throughout the property. We provide 10 - 13 beach towels for the pool as well. Please feel free to bring your own towels as well for the week long stays. This is your own private oasis. It is th perfect private setting for getaways! People that want one place to stay and enjoy the true essence and beauty of Kentucky living.
