About the Property
25 minutes from Kentucky Horse Park! All things Horse, Bourbon & Cycling
Unexpected, modern serenity awaits you on the other side of the traditional barn doors. A bright, airy, open-plan kitchen, dining, and living area with a high ceiling all feels uncluttered, peaceful, and inviting. Relax. Sink into a chair with a book, or kick back on the sofa. Underfloor heating keeps things cozy on cold nights, while central air-conditioning and ceiling fans ensure comfort in the summer.
Multiple sun-drenched windows offer far reaching pastoral views and amazing sunrises and sunsets. Outside patio and sitting areas bring you even closer to the natural beauty of the land and are a perfect spot for a quiet morning coffee or tea, or to socialize with others over pre-dinner drinks.
The European-modern kitchen with island seating is a well-equipped place to gather, whether simply making plans for the day over breakfast, lining up wine glasses and snacks for an afternoon nibble, or preparing a savory dinner (feast) for friends and family.
At the end of the day, two spacious boutique bedrooms await you. Fall into bed, adjust the firmness to your liking, and drift off to good night’s sleep. Also, two modern, aesthetic bathrooms offer luxuriating rain style showers, lovely soaps and plentiful towels.
Whether you are avid cyclists, a romantic couple, a family, or group of friends looking to spend time together, this is a special get-away-from-it-all place. It is just the spot for lovers of the outdoors and those who enjoy something a little different than the norm.
Days out might include a visit to one of the famous horse farms, the KY horse park, a wager at the race track, stops on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, local shopping, or simply exploring the history and rural beauty of the bluegrass. Just lovely.

About the owner: Gwen, native Kentuckian, organic vegetable farmer, bourbon tour guide, loves to cook, comes alive when meeting new people, and volunteers for several organizations in Paris, Ky. Mark, originally from Williamsburg, Virginia, loves Kentucky for it's pastoral views, excellent cycling roads, and Bourbon whiskey. Both enjoy travelling wherever it may take them, domestic or international with a penchant for Italy and the UK.
Why the Owner Chose Cynthiana, KY, USA:
We fell in love with Bourbon County, Kentucky long before we lived in its look-alike cousin, Wiltshire, England, for five lovely years. Our plan several years ago was to buy this Kentucky pasture (37 acres of gorgeous views and fertile soil), build a homestead and live out our years tending to the earth, our animals and ourselves. The lovely town of Paris is 6 miles away and while we could use that as our base for most of our needs, with Lexington only 30 minutes away we knew we were set. We almost did exactly that, but with just a few changes. Whilst living in England, we bought a historic home in beautiful downtown Paris, Kentucky, rented it to others while we were away, and then moved into that house upon our return from England. Now, since it is not yet the time to retire, you will find Gwen tending to the earth at the farm while Mark is at the office (bringing home the bacon). We now have a barn at the farm! Well, this barn is just a bit different as it includes an apartment and a commercial kitchen to suit our changing needs. The barn allows us to get on with it, and to rent the apartment to others who enjoy gorgeous country views, relaxing atmosphere, small town living, sweet country cycling roads, and all things Bourbon and Horse! We know our friends and family love to visit the area, and we know you will, too. We love to hear the stories of your stay and adventures at week’s end. Come see us!
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
At The Barn you enjoy the serenity and beauty of the countryside all the while enjoying the European modern decor inside. The outdoor seating areas bring you directly in touch with Mother Nature.

Horse, bourbon, wine, beer, cycling, shopping, history, all these appealing pursuits are catered to here!
