About Natalie and Chris McNulty

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.

Natalie and Chris McNulty purchased this estate in 2005

Why Natalie and Chris McNulty chose Kentucky

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!

What makes this estate unique

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 the perfect private setting for getaways! People that want one place to stay and enjoy the true essence and beauty of Kentucky living.

Amazing property for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I traveled from three states to this wonderful property for a family vacation. There were 14 people total, and we always had plenty of space (both inside and outside) to do everything we wanted. Movie night, game night, cards, cooking, lawn games, relaxing, etc. It's all possible at this house and cabin.

The pool area surpassed our expectations - it was wonderful! The only thing that would've made it perfect is if it had a railing on the steps when walking into the pool. But even that wasn't a big deal, we just pulled a chair over next to the steps and the arm worked wonderfully as a railing.

The basketball hoop outside the garage was great, and got plenty of use - every day!

The cabin is very spacious and a great hang out or party space. There isn't Wi-fi in the cabin, but there is in the Main House.

My family and I cannot say enough good things about the house and the owners. Natalie and Chris were both extremely welcoming and great at communicating with us if needed. We've rented other places for our family vacation, and never had the customer service and attentiveness that Natalie and Chris provided.

We look forward to going back!

Great place for a family reunion 23 people ages 1 to 69

  • 5 of 5

This property was marvelous for our family of 23! There are so many spaces--the house, the cabin, the pool, the fire pit. The kitchens were fully equipped! Pan, utensils, dishes and the McNultys furnished everything we needed--paper products, soap, linens, towels, pool towels, tables for eating, and game playing! The front steps were a great place for a group photo. The location of the property is excellent. Close to stores, distilleries and other activities, yet the property is an oasis and you would never know your proximity to the city!

This is the first property where we have stayed that we all agree we would love to visit again!

Great vacation spot for our family.

  • 5 of 5

This was a family vacation to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. All of our children and their families were able to be there part of the week. First time since 2008 that we were all together. We had 7 small children and there was plenty of room for them to play and everyone enjoyed the pool. The house and log cabin were clean and well maintained. It was a pleasure to work with Chris & Natalie and spend a week in this home.

Did not dissapoint!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has held reunions at homes around the Midwest and Southeast for several years now and all agreed that this was one of the best. Rarely do we commit to a home without seeing it inside first since we need to sleep 25 people but with the booking schedule here we had to proceed on faith. It was a good bet and everything was wonderful. It was nice to work directly with the owners instead of a management company-they reached out to us daily and were minutes away if we had needed anything. I Highly recommend this property and extend our thanks again to Chris and Natalie.

Breathtaking Property

  • 5 of 5

We were at Grey Tail Manor for a family reunion and used both the main house and cabin which were very well equipped. We really only had to supply the food. We had several children with us ages 12 and under. The pool was a huge hit and they had plenty of room to roam on the property. We did have some rainy weather so we took advantage of some of the local attractions--Mammoth Cave, the Science Museum, and Evan Williams distillery. All in all, we had an awesome week and would love to return for our next family gathering.

This place is absolutely amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Natalie and Chris worked with me to setup the perfect trip for our group. The grounds are well kept and the pool is beautiful. The cabin is really cozy and well appointed. The main house is wonderful all around and well stocked for all your needs. We came here not expecting to be at the house much and ended up barely leaving! What a fun place for any kind of trip and close to everything you need to do!
