Overview

About the property

Welcome to Hutchison Station, our renovated 1890’s train depot. Explore the horse farms, Bourbon trail and central KY while staying on our working thoroughbred horse farm right in the heart of the bluegrass.

Hutchison Station was part of the L&N railroad system between 1890 and 1950 with passenger and freight service between Lexington and Paris. It was the center of the local community and included a post office, 2 blacksmith shops, general store and cattle pens.

Hutchison station is divided into two ground floor apartments. The “Limerick” (named for Lisa’s event horse) has hardwood flooring throughout, 12’ ceilings and is furnished with local handcrafted and antique furniture. The Limerick has two en-suite bedrooms each with a king size bed. The living area includes counter seating for four plus table seating for four.

Hutchison station is approx half way between Lexington and Paris-

• 10 minutes to downtown Paris.

• 15 minutes to the Kentucky Horse Park

• 20 minute to downtown Lexington.

John-George and Sadie our miniature donkeys happily accept treats.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding location! Fabulous owners. Very generous and gracious. We had the opportunity to discuss the history of the building and land, take a short tour and even found the old railroad. The horses were beautiful. The place was beautifully decorated.... will be back next year!

Beautiful country life close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This property was exceptional. The location is convenient to Lexington proper and the surrounding area, the Bourbon Trail, and horse racing and activities. The restoration of this property was done extremely well with high end accents. The living space and bedrooms were roomy and comfortable, and we enjoyed sitting outside in the evening enjoying the quiet and beauty of the countryside. The clincher, of course, was the fresh roses on the table and the homemade cookies! What a great touch! We would stay here again if the opportunity arises, hands down.

Clean, comfortable, great location - horses grazing right outside the front door! If you want the true KY experience, this place is it.

Impeccable & perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location for relaxing, feeding/petting horses, snapping 100s of photos and being perfectly situated within 15-20 minutes of many destination points, stores, restaurants & university. The owners are great folks and take care & pride in their property! Extremely spacious bedrooms & family room - nice touch to be greeted by a vase of fresh flowers & chocolate cookies! The website pictures give the impression of two stories but everything is on ground level. Also, there are some very old Google street photos floating around that show the building in a condition before renovation - ignore those photos! Enjoy & Have Fun!

Charmingly renovated, we were welcomed with flowers and cookies

  • 5 of 5

My Mother, Cousin, and I felt comfortable right from the start. Steve was a patient, flexible host, working around my work schedule on check out day. Walks down the lane to the barn in the evenings provided a relaxing end to the day. The ladies enjoyed watching the horses in the fields too. A peaceful stay - we highly recommend it.
