About Kate Buckley

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! :)

Kate Buckley purchased this house in 2014

Why Kate Buckley chose Lexington

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!

What makes this house unique

"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.

Comfortable, clean and lovely

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely loved my stay in this home! It is so comfortable, with the best bed and lovely decor. It's spacious with a separate kitchen, living room, front office area, two large bedrooms, and a beautiful back porch. The beds were perfect and I loved having access to so many books. It's in a great location, with easy and quick access to New Circle Road while still being in Chevy Chase. I would love to stay here again if I'm back in Lexington.

Wonderful stay while at Kentucky Horse Park

  • 5 of 5

We loved Kate's place! It was very "warm" and inviting. The kitchen was one of our favorite things about the place. We are pretty particular about the food we eat, so it was great to have such a nice kitchen to work with to cook our meals and snacks while in the Lexington area. The house was extremely clean and had all kinds of cute "extras" and nice touches that I loved - like the organic lavender spray in the bedroom, the bookshelves of interesting books, the great coffee maker, and even the area that I used for yoga. Will definitely be staying here again when I'm in the area!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Nancy! I'm delighted to know you enjoyed all the small touches—means so much to me! And how fun that you found the perfect place to practice yoga (let me guess—the front room?). Please do come again soon! Warmly, Kate

A perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

La Belle Fontaine was the perfect property for our Bourbon tour / football weekend getaway. The two bedroom property was immaculate and roomy with a well-equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. The location was convenient to shopping and restaurants but also had access to sidewalks for a morning stroll. We would definitely stay there again.
