An absolutely perfect Lexington pick!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the home from Thursday until Sunday for family guests for an April wedding. The home is even more beautiful than the photos show and is lovingly appointed. Everyone who entered exclaimed about the architecture and decor. The beds were very comfortable and there was plenty of hot water. The kitchen is like something you would see on Pinterest. The gardens are perfectly lovely. The location is convenient for enjoying Lexington. We are so glad that we chose to stay here instead of in hotel rooms. Unforgettable!
