Not as private as pictures show
We wanted a secluded and private escape and didn’t get that with this property. The owners live in the house a few yards away that shares the same driveway and backyard. I didn’t see that in the notes on the listing and it doesn’t show up in the pictures. For the price, I would not have booked knowing this.
If this doesn’t bother you, the house we stayed in was clean, welcoming, and comfortable. It’s a central location for exploring the area and close to everything you need. Check in and check out was easy. Owners we nice and helpful.
We went to the Kentucky Derby this past May and as part of our tour package, we visited Keeneland. We liked the track and location and learned about the Fall Horse Racing in October so we decided to book a trip. We wanted to find a location close to the track as well as something that would immerse us in the whole "horse country" feel. We found this gem of an Inn with a fantastic view of a horse farm. The home is so perfectly appointed with horse country décor and is so unique with one-of-a-kind furnishings including the magnificent bedroom on the upper level that gives you your own private balcony to look out over the pastures of the horse farm. The owners are very generous with their amenities and provide many items to use with their high end appliances. There were many special touches including a magnificent bed with SOFT linens and a heated bathroom floor! The upstairs also had it's own bar and refrigerator (and a snack basket) but there is only one TV in the upstairs. You can turn the TV to face the couch and ottoman in the suite which was important to us as we are avid football fans. The owner was very responsive to all of our questions and requests. We had so much fun during our stay that we will definitely return and hope to book this property again.
What a wonderful property!! My son and I came to Lexington for opening weekend at Keeneland and had an absolute blast! The Inn was perfect in all ways. Very comfortable and well equipped. We will definitely be back!
We had a pleasant stay at Keeneland because our stay at Darley View Cottage feels like home.
Darley View Cottage was like home for us because it have everything you need like in your home and close to every store, mall or restaurant. Tom and María were the perfect hosts. Thank you!!
Not as advertised
Anyone staying here should know this is a one bedroom place - not two bedrooms. And the sofa couch in the living room certainly does not count as a second bedroom - it had broken springs and was not usable for sleep. A claustrophobic loft with a high ladder open to the bedroom had a bed but couldn’t even sit up in it. Also I feel I was charged for three nights, not two.
I checked with the VRBO Booking console and you without question booked ,paid and stayed two nights. That was easily verifiable with 100% certainty. As far the discomfort of a roll out bed for a last minute extra guest, I think a 3 star review would seem more credible considering the consensus of the hundreds of people who have stayed here and have left glowing 5 star reviews. No one has remotely been unhappy. Leaving a one star review and making the claims that you did makes you look a little cranky and mean spirited.
The Inn is located within a few minutes of The Coffee Pub, the most popular breakfast and lunch establishment in Lexington. 5 Minutes from a supermarket and also the same distance from Malones, the finest steakhouse in Lexington. Keeneland and Bluegrass Airport are about 8 minutes away.
