Why the Owner Chose Lexington, KY, USA:
We have always enjoyed the peace and privacy of a country setting, but wanted the convenience of urban living. PondView Cottage offers the best of both...guests can enjoy the quite of the country, yet be downtown Lexington in a matter of minutes.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It's close proximity to Interstates I-75 and I-64, Hamburg Pavilion, downtown Lexington, the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland, Bluegrass Airport, and renowned horse farms make PondView Cottage the ideal vacation base for visitors.
