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.

Exactly is described.

  • 5 of 5

Family of 18 for 3 nights came for the Kentucky Derby festival Thunder. The property was spacious, clean and about 20 minutes away from the city where our large family could have a great time together along with having our own personal space. The outdoor area was fantastic for grilling and having it covered was nice as it was a rainy weekend. Large area for bonfire with plenty of space for all. Basket ball and corn hole was great entertainment outside. The pool looked great but not opened yet.

The welcome gift the Natalie left for us was great for the adults and children. Everyone felt at home. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Our family was very pleased with everything you had to offer. We had a catered meal from Gentleman's which was one of the companies Natalie suggested. It was amazing and so convenient to have it delivered warm to the house.

Amazing owners and property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this location for Easter 2 years ago and it was the perfect family retreat. The owners were so generous and thoughtful to our family during a time when we needed to be together. We will never forget their generosity and the many memories we made during this stay. Words can't express how incredible this home is.

What a GREAT location for a GREAT time!

  • 5 of 5

We were three adult couples who have know each other for almost 40 years but are now living in different states but get together once a year to catch up and reminisce! This location was just fabulous. There was plenty of space inside to socialize or just kick-back, to cook, to share a meal or cocktail together, to read, to watch TV or a movie. Outside there were multiple places to sit and talk or relax either under a tree, around the fire or around the pool or simply to walk around the beautiful grounds. Each couple had their own bedroom and bath with plenty of room to spread out your clothes that your brought for your vacation. The house was close to restaurants, downtown Louisville, Churchill Downs, shopping (of course! full price or outlet) and your choice of bourbon distilleries. Natalie one of the owners was just great with communications before arriving, answering any and all questions as well as offering restaurant suggestions so you could make reservations before arriving, as well as being super responsive to any question that came up while you were there. The house was as described being well equipped with all you would need to make for a fun and relaxing time together! We wouldn't think twice about going back.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We had 11 adults for our annual group vacation and LOVED it here! Natalie and Chris were so helpful and kind during our stay, and even before our stay. The property is tucked away on a beautiful and quiet wooded lot, but shopping centers and highway/interstate access are only 5 minutes away. Bedrooms are very comfortable, bathrooms are well kept. The fire pit area is perfect for just kicking back with a 12-pack and hanging out. The pool and poolhouse are absolute treasures -- we rarely missed a chance to jump in. In the main house, we enjoyed cooking in the very well-equipped kitchen and having big dinners around the dining room table. In the cabin, we loved watching movies on the giant TV and playing cards at the poker table by the kitchen. We enjoyed our stay so much that before we even left, we were thinking about coming back next year.

The ONLY caveat: it may have been due to the weather (hot and rainy, and it'd been that way for a couple of weeks already when we got there), but the upstairs bedroom in the cabin (1 queen bed) was kind of dank and musty. The person who was going to sleep there elected to share a bedroom elsewhere instead. However, all the other bedrooms were lovely.

Beautiful Place to Escape AND to enjoy Louisville!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely the perfect place to gather up our family from different states to meet and enjoy each other's company for a week! The kids loved the pool and sleeping in the log cabin was extra special for them. We all enjoyed the park-like atmosphere with the large trees and beautiful patios and yards. Natalie and Chris ensured that our stay was comfortable and that all our needs were met. Everything was very clean and ready for us upon arrival. They have provided an abundance of information about the house (reading about the history of the house made it unique and special to us) and all there is to do in the area. The house is conveniently close to grocery stores, downtown Louisville, and so many other amenities that we feel like we honestly could have stayed another week. We played tennis (at a park only 10 min away) and visited several beautiful parks, went to the Science Center and Louisville Slugger Museum, spent an evening at Churchill Downs, and spent several evenings roasting marshmallows and playing cards around the dining room table.

Amazing Group Destination

  • 5 of 5

This house has been the perfect destination for our annual golf trip, which has been changing venues until we found this awesome property. We just returned from our second stay in as many years, and plan to keep coming back as long as this house is for rent.

Whether it's a golf retreat (lots of good courses in the area), or another gathering, you can't go wrong with this unique property. The house is updated, including a fun guest house for the kids that includes ping pong, big TV, and a game/poker table.

The outdoor spaces are what makes the space great, though. Multiple patios, fire pit, swimming pool, grills, basketball hoop, and plenty of space to stretch your legs.

You won't regret choosing this estate!
