About Ellen Bowman

My husband and I love to fish and boat on the Kentucky River as well as enjoy the many country side beauties of our scenic state. Entertaining our family and friends with southern style hospitality is very important to us. We also love people and want to provide a place for others to experience the beauty of the outdoors and nature.

Ellen Bowman purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Ellen Bowman chose Kentucky

We purchased this three acre piece of property to have easy access to the river for boating and fishing. Though the house needed to be completely remodeled and the surrounding area cleaned, the view was overwhelmingly beautiful and made all the hard work worth it. The property is located 10 minutes from Lexington and 1 mile from Exit 99 of I-75 off of Ky 2328, so it is easy for visitors to locate when traveling in the scenic Bluegrass.

What makes this cottage unique

We love to stay at this property as the accommodations are private facing the Kentucky River with a spring-fed waterfall and stairs leading the the river's edge for easy access to fishing and boating. It is very relaxing for us to unwind in the gazebo hot-tub which looks out over the river or just sit on the deck and enjoy all of natures wonderful sounds.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 guys stay and everybody absolutely loved it. The property is very easy to get to from the interstate and there is so much room on the property for activities. I would highly recommend this place to anybody looking for somewhere in the area.

THE best!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Thursday for my son's graduation from EKU on Friday (it was about a 15 minute drive there). Despite the rain, it was beautiful both inside & outside the cottages. We came from NC & rented out all 3 floors. Brenda & Ralph were THE best hosts ever - thought of everything. Tents, charcoal grills (had a cook out Friday evening with the rain), tables & chairs, music system for the guys to use, even extra flower vases. She offered suggestions on great restaurants (there was a notebook in each cottage with more information as well), also gave me directions to Costco. We all had a wonderful time with family & friends & would come back here in a heart beat if we find ourselves in the Lexington/Richmond area again.

Peaceful location on the river

  • 5 of 5

Spent kentucky derby week at the cottage with my family. We rented the whole cottage and had an amazing time! Location was perfect,price was very reasonable compared to other VRBO,Air b&b properties we have rented. Plenty of room for the grandkids to run around and play. Owners were warm and welcoming and responded immediately to a minor leak issue. I would highly recommend this property and plan on returning soon.

Beautiful Place on the River

  • 5 of 5

Our youngest of three sons was getting married at The Castle Post. We needed a place that would allow the immediate family (mom, dad, brothers and spouses) to be together when necessary and provide privacy when desired. We also wanted a place that was conveniently located, quiet, and relaxing. This place met all of our requirements. It is close to town for restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, area attractions, events, etc., yet remote enough to provide peace and tranquility while relaxing on the banks of the river or soaking in the hot tub. The three floors are fully contained units with all the amenities. The hosts were pleasant, knowledgeable, and accommodating.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a weekend. We had a great time. We rented the first and second floor. They were both clean and had everything we needed for our stay. There is a book with all of the restaurants, churches, hospitals and attractions nearby. A nice touch.The view is pretty amazing. We enjoyed corn hole, horseshoes, the fire pit and the hot tub. We appreciated all the little touches to make our stay comfortable. We will definitely be staying again!
