My wife and I, together with my sister and her husband, just returned from a family reunion weekend in Lexington, and again stayed at this beautiful property. It was most comfortable for the four of us with plenty of room, lovely furnishings, and quiet, peaceful surroundings. We loved watching the horses, their colts, and the sheep in the pasture! So relaxing. Steve and Lisa are amazing hosts and were very helpful in directing us around the area and to the best restaurants! We said it before and we’ll say it again: We will stay here anytime we’re in Lexington if availability allows!
This stay was everything I'd hoped it would be. The house is gorgeous and so wonderfully decorated and appointed. The farm is stunning and at all times of day, an amazing view. There were homemade cookies and cute donkeys to greet us. 😊� I had helpful and friendly interaction with Steve on a few questions I had. This place seems way out in the country, but is a quick 10-15 min ride into Lexington. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
My family and I just returned from KT, by far this was the nicest VRBO we have stayed at. The artwork, spaciousness, tub, beds--everything was awesome. The best however, was how engaged my kids were at the farm. Lisa and Steve are amazing, they were so kind to the kids--truly an amazing experience for my city dwelling kids! We also checked out Clover Hill farm for riding lessons and ate and enjoyed a blue grass band and Windy Corner. Such and unexpected amazing time was had by all. My son is missing Baby the mini horse terribly...
This was our fourth year in a row staying here, we have enjoyed it every time.
We've stayed at this property 3 times. We love the home, the animals and all of the land. Steve and Lisa were as hospitable as always! We'll definitely be back. Thank you!
The home was very comfortable and beautiful. Everything was available. The beds were comfortable. It was close enough to town but yet felt like you were in the country. Would definitely return if in the area again.
Located in the heart of the Bluegrass and surrounded by horse farms we are within easy access to the Bourbon trail and Kentucky horse park.
