About the Property
2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment with next kitchen and beautiful garden
We bought this 1948 home in December 2013. We renovated the downstairs apartment and rented it right away. Then we decided to renovate and furnish the upstairs apartment for vacation travelers to Lexington. It is really pretty and close to Lexington's growing downtown scene. In fact, it is only steps away from Jefferson Street, Lexington's newest entertainment district, with bars, a brewery, restaurants and an upscale wine bar.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
Paying with a credit card on VRBO protects your payment for up to $10,000 against listing fraud. We recommend completing your booking on VRBO.Learn more

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: This vacation rental is run by two sisters. Teri lives just seven houses away in an 1890's Victorian. Delena lives in Austin, Tx, where she works as a recruiter. We were both born in Kentucky and grew up on Lexington's north side. We, along with Teri's husband, Chris, have recently become involved in the development of the Distillery District by purchasing the abandoned James Pepper Distillery. We are currently building Goodfella's Pizza a space in the old Boiler House, and will be starting on the NEW James Pepper Distillery in December. We have recently become dismayed at reports that hotels are only giving their housekeepers 15-20 minutes to clean a room. This is NOT enough time. Two of always spend at least two hours cleaning between guests. The report even showed that sheets are not being changed between guests. Oh my. We very much want to assure anyone who rents our properties that every bed is changed between every guest...even if it appears not to have been used. Every. SIngle. Time. Exactly like we would expect when we rent from others.
Why the Owner Chose North Upper Street, Lexington, KY, USA:
The home is located in Lexington's second and largest neighborhood on beautiful West 3rd Street. The neighborhood has undergone a transformation in recent years while maintaining it's historic charm. There are many restaurants, breweries, bars and shops opening throughout. We have a heart for historic preservation (this is our ninth renovation) in downtown Lexington and this is our first short-term rental. We are excited to meet the guests who visit our charming and comfy apartment and welcome them to our hometown.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The garden is incredible. Not being talented gardeners ourselves, we feel incredibly lucky that a landscape architect rented one of the apartments for several years before we bought the house in December, 2013. He spent several thousand hours and hundreds of dollars creating an English garden of winding paths and full, lush beds. It is peaceful and a piece of paradise right downtown. All we had to do was dig it since he had moved out and it was neglected for several years. The furnishings have been culled from area estate sales over the past year. The resulting look is a contemporary renovation, with vintage furnishings. Teri and her husband have spent a few nights there when their own home is rented, and have absolutely loved it. We are confident our guests will too!
