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.
