About Owner/Manager

This is the home I grew up in. My parents built this house in 1954-55. While it is an older home it has been well maintained. As a kid we raised beef cattle and grew tobacco and corn. As a kid I would hunt squirrels on this property and camp. It is a very special place to me and my brothers. I now live in Lexington, Kentucky and my brother and sister-in-law live close to this house.

Owner/Manager purchased this farmhouse in 1955

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay here was amazing. I had forgotten what quiet was until I sat on the front porch during a long steady rain...what a gift. Staying in the country is a rare pleasure and staying in this country exceeded all expectations.

Love the den and front porch the most.

Blessings to you,

So many ameneties

  • 4 of 5

This farm home is full of space for a family or group of friends to spread out and be comfortable. The setting is scenic, especially when you climb the back of the property and enjoy the views. The owners leave a lot of kitchen spices, etc. to help you avoid running to the store for a forgotten ingredient. Beds are very comfortable. We liked the new day bed this year. Owners easy to work with.

My husband and I stayed at this wonderful farm house for a week while we were doing some work on our property nearby. The home was spotless and just as pictured on the website.

We had to reschedule our trip several times due to health issues, and the Owners, The Buckles, were extremely accommodating!

We would recommend this property without hesitation and plan to recommend this home to our family to rent when they come and visit us later this fall!
