About the Property

Super clean and quiet retreat in Louisville, Kentucky

Five minutes from the airport, Kentucky Exposition Center, and Churchill Downs. Kitty's house is a charming 1926 brick cottage located in a tree-lined residential neighborhood. Take a walk or run along beautiful Southern Parkway to lush Iroquois Park. Catch the tranquil sounds of Vietnamese Buddhist monks chanting their daily prayers in front of the temple on the corner.

Visitors with allergies to cigarette smoke or pet dander will appreciate that we do not allow smoking (not even e-cigarettes) or pets at this property. The house is sparkling clean and well stocked to make visitors feel right at home:

Owner info

About the owner: My husband is a Louisville native and longtime barber, whose shop is right next door in our home. I've lived in the city for 30-plus years and love our beautiful neighborhood!

Why the Owner Chose Beechmont, Louisville, KY, USA:
We bought this house from our next-door neighbor and friend Kitty, who lived here until she was almost 98 years old! For several years, we used it as a guest house for out-of-town family and friends and then started offering it to other travelers, too. To us, it will always be known as "Kitty's house."

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Kitty's house is just a few minutes from I-65 and I-264, and you can take 3rd Street north through Old Louisville and be downtown in 10 minutes. We live right next door and are available if you have any questions or need a recommendation.
