Impressive and Super Comfy

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of eight stay for two nights. Our jaws dropped over and over around each corner at the gorgeous and completely unique architecture and decor. There was plenty of space for when we all wanted to hang out together as well as when we wanted to relax individually. Each area was so inviting and comfortable as well as beautiful. The owners were responsive and accommodating. Shelbyville is the cutest little town with friendly people. It’s also very central to awesome food, distilleries, wineries, and horse farms.

Terrific place!

  • 5 of 5

This place is super. The pictures don't do it justice. We stayed for two week with 11 family members - and there was plenty of room. The outdoor area was great for family dining in the evening. This is a loft house over businesses below - antique stores. The steps going up are steep - it's an effort getting your luggage up. Just be aware, so you don't book a place that doesn't meet your needs. The shower in the master bed room is to die for - dual heads, steam assist, with a tub in the shower area too.

Ben and Mrlinda are your hosts and they were very responsive to any questions or issues.

Louisville is about 30 minutes west, Frankfort is about 25 minutes east - there lots to do around. I'd highly recommend Buffalo Trace Distillery, Woodford Reserve Distillery, Churchill Downs, Louisville Zoo, the Ark - to name a few.

Btw, parking is on the street. There was never an issue finding a place to park.

Amazing property with quick and easy access to many activities

  • 5 of 5

For Christmas, my husbands side of the family wanted to meet somewhere "in the middle" between where we lived in NC and where they lived in MI. My side of the family is located in the Louisville and Lexington KY area, so Shelbyville fit that need! Next would be the task of finding a place where 15 people could stay. We were blown away by the description of this property. This loft is amazing and comes with a 225 year history. Ben was responsive throughout the booking and rental process. They use this property as their home, so that it's exactly what it feels like! We found every room met a specific need for us. Huge open floor plan with plenty of couch/lounging space. A very large dining table (that was also great for playing cards and other games), open kitchen with lots of counter space and "hang out" space - it was perfect for when both families got together. There was a large theater room with projection TV and 3 queen beds - great for the kids and teens! The "man-cave" has 3 big screen TV's and that was great for watching playoff football! There was even a playroom! Two of the bedrooms only had full size beds (a bit tight) and also a jack-and-jill bathroom. The guest room had a king size bed and bathroom. Then, there was the master! I really didn't want to leave! The master bath is exquisite with an amazing steam shower.

We hope to come back when it is warmer to experience the incredible outdoor entertaining space that is HUGE! Another large table and tons of seating to watch the big screen TV while sitting by the fire! We felt like we were in heaven. The coffee shop downstairs prepared urns of coffee for us every morning and it was fun to be so close to downtown shopping and dining. We were also just about 30 minutes from downtown Louisville, so a quick drive to even more activities. I highly recommend this property and it exceeded our expectations!

Absolutely Fabulous.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderfully time. The house is more impressive than the photos (if that is even possible). Our hosts were very generous and helpful, and made us feel completely at home.

Our team of 12 runners stay at the house for the weekend, during the Bourbon Chase relay. As soon as we arrived, we all questioned if we wanted to run the race, or just stay at the house the whole time. (We ran the race, but we LOVED coming back to the house).

Thanks to the Hardin's to opening your home to us! You have a lovely home, a lovely town, and a lovely cafe downstairs. We loved having fresh coffee each morning, scones, muffins and frittatas.

Great Space in Shelbyville, Ky.

  • 5 of 5

Melinda and Ben couldn't have been any nicer. The place is fabulous, well appointed with everything that you would need. It's on the second floor of an old building that they have completely redone with a coffee shop/bar/antique gift shop downstairs. It does sleep 16 but only has 4 actual bedrooms, 2 with double beds and 2 with kings. There is a media room with a raised platform that has 4 queen size mattresses on it. This was fine for the young people but would not be ideal for some. Also the stairs leading up are quite steep. Our 88 yr old mother was with us so she just stayed put the whole weekend. Ben was available to help us lug our bags up as well as some boxes of food and wine. An added bonus.....two carafes of coffee waiting for us each morning!

Thank you Melinda and Ben for a nice weekend in your home!
