About Carol Ward

We look forward to meeting you and helping to make your visit to central Kentucky a memorable one. Both of us are Kentucky born and raised. We love touring this beautiful countryside on our motorcycle. Y'all come!

Why Carol Ward chose Versailles

This cottage was Ma Ward's home. We have since completely remodeled and decorated it with a rustic chic atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Christine and her family were delightful. They are friendly and gracious, and they took wonderful care of the cottage. We would welcome them back any time, hopefully for a longer stay.

Lovely stay here. The owners are great and the house is comfortable, extremely clean, all new kitchen items, beds were delightfully comfortable, everything we needed was there. Would definitely stay there again. Midway is a charming little town to visit. Loved it all!

Super clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Very gracious hosts! Super clean and recently renovated and decorated. We even had a garage to park in. Carol left local soda for us to try in the fridge along with s'more fixins and a fire pit ready to light. We had a 5 minute walk to live music and good food on the restaurant deck. Conveniently located to lexington and the bourbon trail. We had 7 women and it was very comfortable for all of us.

Quiet, Comfy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The property lived up to its name. It was quiet, and comfy. A friend and myself was looking for a place to stay with easy access to most distilleries. The country side coming and going to the cottage was BEAUTIFUL. Many horse farms and horses running around. We were close to Midway Ky and we fell in love with the restaurants there. I would definitely rent the cottage again for this same vacation.

Nicely done

  • 3 of 5

Yes the outside of the home is average .. however the inside is very cute!! Beds are comfy as well as the plush towels. Water and milk in the fridge was an added touch and much appreciated! The only thing that made the place a bit off point was hair in the tub and on the bathroom floor... as well as trash on the bedroom floor. Also.. the hot water was way less than hot.. lukewarm at best.

Cute place..just a few things that would keep me from coming back.

Owner's Response: Wow! So sorry to read this. We sanitize our bathrooms after every visit but we evidently missed a couple of needed items. The hot water heater may have been set on vacation, so we will be more careful to make that adjustment prior to any guest stay. We hope Cathy will give us another try.

Stayed here 05/02/18-05/06/18

We traveled from Farmington Utah in our truck to Versailles. We went to the Kentucky Oaks and the Kentucky Derby. The travel time from the house to Louisville was less than an hour each way. This was fine for us because the prices in Louisville for lodging during Derby are extremely high. The house was great no complaints at all. The Wards were great hosts and helped us with any questions we had. What we enjoyed the most since this was our first time to KY was Versailles itself. The horse farms and peaceful town were really quite the experience. If we would have stayed in Louisville we would have never even known about this town. We would love to comeback some time and were more than satisfied with the accommodations.

Owner's Response: The Carrolls were a joy to host. We enjoyed hearing their reactions to thoroughbred country and discussing the beauty of their home area. They were thoughtful and took excellent care of our cottage. If you have a chance to host the Carrolls, you will be glad you did.
