Overview

About the property

Farmhouse, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Come stay in our newly renovated 1890's train station in the heart of the bluegrass.

We are on a working thoroughbred horse farm right off Paris Pike, one of the most scenic areas in all of Central Kentucky. Drive by Gainsway and Elemendorf farms on the way to Claiborne farm. 15 minutes to the Kentucky Horse Park, Fasig Tipton, close to Keeneland and the Lexington area attractions.

Hutchison Station was part of the L&N railroad system between 1890-1950, it still has the original hardwood floors, 12' ceilings and much of the original molding. In its heyday it included a post office, livestock loading platform, general store and blacksmith's shop. You can read more about the station house in 'Ghost Railroads of Kentucky'. Many of the original families still live in the area.

Area activities include a 9 hole golf course within walking distance, and a short drive to many 18 hole courses, horse farm tours, historical sites including Shakertown, Mary Todd Lincoln House, Henry Clay Estate, Civil War battlefields and much more.

We have easy access to I75 & I64 and are located 1/2 way between Lexington and Paris.

About Steve Parkes

Lisa and I run a Thoroughbred horse farm where the Station House is located. We live on the farm, Lisa since she was 5 years old. Farm duties involve the breeding and raising of thoroughbred horses. Lisa and her father raised and raced their own horses off this farm.

Why Steve Parkes chose Lexington

This property has been part of the family farm since the 60's.

A great gem in the middle of thoroughbred country!

  • 5 of 5

This renovated train station was the perfect place for a restful getaway. The location was in peaceful horse country, away from the hub-bub of the city, but only a few minutes drive into town. The apartment was lovely and very clean - exactly as it looked on the website. The owners provided fresh roses on the coffee table and a plate of homemade cookies in the kitchen! We would definitely stay here again.

Picturesque Location

  • 5 of 5

My family recently had the pleasure of staying on this amazing property. The location couldn't be more convenient to the Kentucky Horse Park and is infinitely more comfortable than any hotel. We are already missing the daily visits with the donkeys and foals and would definitely book again the next time we are in the area. Thanks for a great visit!
