All the comforts of home, inside and out. Four bedrooms and two baths, den with sleeper sofa give you lots of space for your large group.

Please note the the price includes a 10% local transient/ hotel tax.

The Space

Snuggled in the historic Schnitzelburg neighborhood our home comfortably accommodates 6 plus people. Four bedrooms, one with a Queen size bed, two with doubles and one with a double air mattress. All are comfortably sized with closet hanging space in two of the rooms and one with a dresser for your use. Alarm clocks in all rooms and windows with curtains for those late mornings. Ipod players in most of the rooms. A queen size sleeper sofa in the den effectively make it a 5 bedroom easy to sleep 10. We have two single floor mattresses available for two more people.

Upstairs tiled master bath has jacuzzi tub and separate shower with seating and double sinks. The downstairs tiled full bath also has a hand held massaging shower nozzle attached to the wall.

Kitchen is spacious with table and seating for four, gas stove, dishwasher, and fridge with ice maker. Full access to kitchen gadgets including blender and all dishes. Full assortments of teas and coffee pot available too. Dining room is just off the kitchen and can seat up to 10 or more if you really like each other, 6 comfortably.

The sunken den is on the back side of the house and has that groovy 70's feel with easy access to the covered porch that has a gas grill. Convenient for use even if it rains. The bar is on the landing which overlooks the room. sleeper sofa, chaise lounge and 42 inch tv with local stations and easy access cables for hooking to your computer and cord for hooking an Ipod into the stereo. Wifi router is also in this room giving the whole house and yard excellent reception.

The outside has a fire pit on the huge back patio with plenty of wood to burn (or any losing lottery tickets). Traditional hammock and seated hammock with marble top table and chairs make it a easy hang out space. Covered back porch also has additional seating including a wooden swing that overlooks the back yard moss garden.

Street parking is right in front of the house.

Guest Access

Will have access to entire house and yard except for the very front room (which is my studio) and back outbuilding (which is my husbands studio). Washer and dryer with eco friendly unscented laundry soap.

Interaction with Guests

As the host we will be there to welcome your group and show you around the house and hand over the keys. I or a friend could be available to help in any way needed but the whole house is yours for the stay.

I would also be able to shop for you and have the fridge and bar stocked. (reimbursement on arrival).

The Neighborhood

Kroger grocery and liquor store is 3 blocks away within easy walking distance. Churchill Downs is a short 3.4 miles from this home which makes getting to and from really easy. The Highlands and downtown which are two of Louisville's most popular eating/drinking areas are only 5 minutes away, making this home very centrally located to all of the fun in Louisville. However you need only walk a few block to find multiple bars and restaurants in the neighborhood. Finn's is at the end of the street and serves a full breakfast. The Post Pizza which serves late and restarts happy hour at midnight. Many other options including a new coffee shop a block away.

Emerson Park and community gardens is just a few block away. It has great playground for the kids.

Getting around

TARC our local public bus system can be accessed just a block away. Please ask if you need more info about getting places.

If you don't want to take a cab at the airport I have a minivan and can give you a ride to and from for $30 each way. Just let me know ahead of time.

Other Things to Note

You can expand you support of the arts by purchasing pieces you find here. We ship. Original art makes a memorable keepsake for your time in Louisville and doubles as a great investment.
