~~~~~

In accordance with zoning ordinances and/or to address problems that have occurred with past guests, the following additional rules are enforced:

1) MAXIMUM OF 4 UNRELATED GUESTS (i.e., not related by blood, marriage, or adoption) due to zoning restrictions on single-family housing.

2) MAXIMUM AWAKE-TIME VISITORS on the property is one per paid guest at any given time (for example, if you have 5 paid guests then you can have a maximum of 5 additional awake-time visitors the house at any one time). If you anticipate having more visitors than paid guests then you must obtain written permission (to do so, write to me with the purpose for the visitors, the total number of visitors, and the day/time range that they will be visiting).

3) QUIET TIME is 10pm to 7am. This is a quiet family neighborhood; if the neighbors can hear your voices or your music from their property then you are too loud.

4) INTERFERING WITH THE SECURITY SYSTEM IS PROHIBITED. This includes tampering with, disabling, repositioning, or covering the cameras or security system equipment. (The cameras are positioned to watch all entrances/exits from outside of the house; there are no cameras inside the living area of the house itself.)

Most guests followed these rules even before they became explicit rules, but those who didn't have upset the neighbors. Therefore, failure to comply with these rules can result in police involvement, eviction, and/or forfeiture of the deposit. Please note that the neighbors are aware that this is a short-term rental and I have encouraged them to call the police and/or me if problems arise. That said, follow these rules and everyone will be happy. :)

Great for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

This home was spacious and beautiful. It was great for our family gathering and a great location for day trips to bourbon trail stops and Kentucky horse farms. Jason, the owner, was attentive and only a text away.

Run down and needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

There was plenty of sleeping room as stated and his house keeper was very nice and tried to help as much as she could. When we arrived the first thing we noticed was no WIFI. We were finally able to find the router and able to reboot so that it was working. The Kuerig attachment for the coffee maker was broke. There were lots of bugs in the downstairs bathroom. The over head light in the family room did not work. They said there was a battery charger somewhere but we could not find it. The thermostat could only be reset for 4 hrs then reverted back to program setting. We were there and the temps were in the 90's and it kept going back up to 76. That was irritating. Also, not sure if someone took all the soup spoons but there was not a spoon to be found. The location is great and with a little TLC this would be a great stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your honest feedback, and I'm sorry to hear that your stay didn't go as smoothly as you would have liked. That said, all routers sometimes need to be rebooted, bugs are common in all houses in this area that time of year (but the house has been professionally treated for bugs), remote batteries sometimes die (they have been replaced), and this is the first I have heard of there being no spoons (there were about 15 of them at last check) so I will have the caretaker check on that. I understand your irritation with the thermostat only staying on your desired temperature for 4 hours, but it can be reprogrammed and I would have even been able to take care of that for you remotely if you had contacted me about it. I'll certainly be diligent to address your concerns where possible, but unfortunately many of the concerns raised are simply facts-of-life issues that can't be prevented but can (and always are) addressed ASAP as they inevitably arise and I am informed of them. :)

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for two couples and three 3 singles. We all had our own rooms and a great gathering place in the kitchen and family room area. It is a lovely area with very nice homes.

Jason Hans the owner was very helpful.

This was a home away from our home.

  • 5 of 5

Everyone in the family loved it from our 80 year old parents to our grandchildren. It had everything we need from the kitchen to the bathrooms. We will be back. Thank you for everything.
