About Hal or Meg Williams

Hal and Meg train thoroughbreds during the Churchill Downs' Spring Meet. They live at Audubon Landing from April to July every year while in Kentucky. The rest of the year is split between racing in Hot Springs, Arkansas during the winter months and home in Red Lodge, Montana.

Hal or Meg Williams purchased this house in 2014

Why Hal or Meg Williams chose Poplar Level

The Williams' chose this property for several distinct reasons. Location. Location. Location is number one through three. It is close to the track, the airport, park/green space, the Audubon neighborhood, grocery shopping and the dining and entertainment opportunities of the Bardstown/Highlands area.

The home itself is in great shape, well constructed with mid-century charm. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Hal and Meg are the quintessential hosts!

Booking was a little bumpy on my end do to life’s unexpected sircumstances. Hal has endless patience. When we arrived the house was spotless,the yard was beautiful and perfect for our dogs. The neighborhood was quiet and welcoming. We took daily walks with our pups and ran into many nice folks doing the same thing. All in all a perfect stay.

Cute and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay, especially if looking for a quiet place that is still close to downtown activities. We were in town for a long weekend to attend a concert downtown. Couldn't have been any easier getting to and from our venue without getting into the bottle necked traffic. The house is in a very quiet neighborhood with parking off the street. It looks just like the pictures. Our family has stayed in many rental homes all over and this has just about everything you will ever need while away from your own home. There are many activities, food, shopping, etc. any direction you turn. Hal and Meg were very prompt with providing information needed for the stay. I would stay again!

Owner's Response: Hello Jennifer. Thank you for the kind review. Meg and I have enjoyed working on this home over the last few years trying to make it attractive and comfortable. Louisville is a great city. As you say, much to do, see, eat and enjoy at every turn. Come back and visit! Hal

We would definitely return here to see more of this charming city!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. The beds were comfortable and the house neat and tidy. The location was perfect in a cute neighborhood all within a short drive from downtown, more neighborhoods and the zoo. Easy access to Walmart, target, Kroger etc...

We enjoyed dining at the local pizza place (Bearno’s Pizza) that we were referred to only 10 minutes from the home as well as a great local bbq restaurant (Mamas mustard, pickles and bbq).

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Paul. Audubon Landing's location has been one of it's best feature's for our guests. While it is centrally located and easily accessible to the entire city, it is still in a nice, quiet, hometown neighborhood. Hal

Lovely home with a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very lovely, very clean home. Hal and Meg did an excellent job making sure our needs were met. The beds were comfortable, there were plenty of plush towels, they did an excellent job indicating in the home where to find things we might need like remote controls, extra garbage bags, etc. There were also extra things like tape, envelopes and stamps should we need them. The location was absolutely perfect! We were able to take our dog for nice walks down the street, we were close to the park, the zoo is right down the street along with the Mega Cavern, which our family really enjoyed. We would highly recommend this home and would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kelly. We appreciate the review and are glad you enjoyed the home and found it's location convenient. Meg and I haven't been to the Mega Cavern yet even though we could walk to it. We're always very busy when in Louisville, but we're going to have to explore the caves under our own feet! Come back and visit. Hal and Meg

Audubon Landing is a brick, Cape Code style, mid-1950's brick home located in the quiet Poplar Level neighborhood wonderfully bookended by two of Louisville's urban treasures.

Immediately to the west is stately Audubon Park and Audubon Golf Course. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the City of Audubon Park is 230 acres of classic architechture, shading mature oaks and blossoming dogwoods. Designated a bird sanctuary in 1978, the City of Audubon Park has two annual traditions: the spring Dogwood Festival and the fall Arts and Crafts Festival. It is a wonderful place to run, walk or stroll right from Audubon Landing's front steps.

To the west, Louisville's Highlands area boasts an eclectic array of shops, restaurants and nightclubs. Whether in search of clothes boutiques, a neighborhood pub, upscale dining, a movie, antiques or the best breakfast in Louisville; The Highlands has it all just a couple miles away.

Audubon Landing's own Poplar Level area is more parkland (80%) than developed neighborhood. It contains Joe Creason Park, historic Louisville and Calvary Cemeteries, Beargrass Creek State Nature Preserve and the Louisville Zoo, all within a mile and a half radius of Audubon Landing's driveway.

It's hard to beat Audubon Landing's convenience to the basics with a spread of fast foods (from Panera Bread to McDonald's), a Walmart and a CVS Pharmacy all within a half mile. Despite it's convenience, this comfortable home away from home feels sheltered from the hubbub.

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $400

Our rates have recently changed due to a change in Metro Louisville tax rates on nightly rentals such as ours. The following is a breakdown of ALL Kentucky taxes that apply to this rental: 6% State Sales and Use tax; 1% State Transient Room Tax and now 8.5% Metro Louisville Transient Room Tax. In early Fall 2017 we lowered our nightly base rate from $165/night to $149/night to absorb more than half of this total tax rate. We are committed to staying competitive with local options for accommodations and feel strongly that we achieve that goal. We look forward to you finding out for yourself the value of this nice little home in a great location.

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
