"The nicest vacation rental we've ever seen or stayed in! If you ever want to sell, please let me know!" - Roger C.

Location, location, location! Relax in this newly remodeled gorgeous designer-appointed, spacious (1,423 sq. ft.) retreat, conveniently located on Fontaine Road in Chevy Chase, just minutes from area attractions, UK, Downtown, New Circle Road. Great for horse farm, winery, or Bourbon Trail touring, Keeneland Race Track, the Rolex Three-Day Event, Kentucky Horse Park events, conventions, conferences and trade shows, UK Sports and Graduations, and more (1.8 miles from University of Kentucky, 3 miles from Rupp Area/epicenter of Downtown, 3.2 miles from Transylvania University, 8.6 miles from LEX/Blue Grass Airport, 8.8 miles from Keeneland Race Track, 11.5 miles from the KY Horse Park, etc.).

Each room has been thoughtfully designed and furnished with attractive and comfortable furnishings, textiles, orchids, original paintings and art work, and every comfort considered (every amenity you'd expect plus thoughtful touches like throw pillows and blankets, ample reading lamps, candles, books, hairdryer, spa sound machine, and a magnifying makeup mirror). The entire space is open and airy with light colors, hardwood floors, high ceilings—think Southern California meets Central Kentucky. And, the kitchen was just remodeled—gorgeous, light, and bright, with everything you could possibly need to prepare a gourmet meal—blender, toaster, coffeemakers, pots, pans, chef's knives, teas, coffees, olive oil, spices, etc!

There are 2 bedrooms, one with a Cal King bed and the other a Queen. Both beds feature high end mattresses and linens and are extremely comfortable! There is one full bathroom (stocked with hair dryer, makeup mirror and a generous assortment of toiletries) and one half bath. Additionally, there's an office/library, wifi, a newly renovated full kitchen with everything you might possibly need, a comfortable living room with a flat-panel television w/Roku offering free Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. plus a library of books, games, etc. A stylish dining area comfortably seats 6. Enjoy relaxing on the covered veranda with its gas grill and patio furniture (spring - fall; stored for winter), overlooking the spacious fenced in backyard.

Secure, free high-speed (highest speed available) WIFI internet is available throughout the unit. Enjoy a complimentary bottle of good red wine and dark chocolate upon your arrival!

Ample offstreet parking is provided in the circular driveway in front of the house. Access instructions to home will be provided upon booking acceptance.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I'm a 9th-generation Kentuckian who attended Transylvania University and the University of Kentucky, and now divide my time between Lexington and Southern California. I'm a writer, artist and designer, and branding and marketing consultant. My mother owns a 5-star Inn, so comfortable and gracious hosting is in my DNA! :)

Why the Owner Chose Shriners, Lexington, Kentucky, United States of America:
It's stunningly beautiful, every comfort has been considered, every amenity provided—many guests have remarked it's as comfortable and peaceful as a resort/spa retreat, and you simply cannot beat the location!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
"Kate has done a lovely job with equipping her home for everything you could possibly need. In addition to a great collection of books, poetry, cook books and art, she has a well supplied kitchen. Her lovely touches are an inspiration for my vacation homes. Kate is extremely responsive and helpful, we had a lovely three days in Lexington and will certainly return to her special place on our next trip to Lexington." - Virginia S. "The nicest vacation rental we've ever seen or stayed in! If you ever want to sell, please let me know!" - Roger C. "The stay was splendid, in no small part thanks to the aesthetic you created and the attention to detail you demonstrate in ensuring marvelous hospitality. The Four Seasons has nothing on you!" - Allison M. "The bamboo and sheepskin mattress covers and assortment of pillows made the bed the most comfortable sleep we have ever had! Your hospitality was evident in every detail!" - Jakigh U. "I believe in "calling it like it is/was" on all reviews, and I do not give the highest ratings "just because". That being said, without a doubt, this was the absolute nicest Airbnb that I've stayed in. The decoration was "comfortable fashion ". Unlike many Bed & Breakfast inns where it is hard to get comfortable due the nice surroundings, Kate's decoration style was a great mix of beautiful yet livable rooms, decor and belongings. It was truly home away from home. This was our first trip to KY, so we were concerned about the location, but was pleasantly surprised the easy access to both the inner and outer belt lines, as well as close to downtown Lexington, as well as convenient stores within 1-2 miles from either direction of her home. The community was pleasant as well, and daily you would see people walking (with kids and pets), jogging, etc.. Last but not least, Kate was a super super host. No matter where she was, if we needed anything, she replied ASAP to help us." - William R.
