                                                                We loved the house. It was very clean and very comfortable. All the essentials were included. Comfortable bed.

                                                                Very close to Frankfort area distilleries.

                                                                Super clean, welcoming apartment

                                                                Attention to detail

                                                                This was such a lovely apartment. There was nothing forgotten. On top of having all your primary needs meet in terms of kitchen, bath, and living space they also had little things like bag chairs, q-tips, makeup remover and toiletries. It literally felt like home. Everything was super clean and comfortable. My only complaint would be the bed, it was too firm. With that said, im really picky and I'm used to my sleep number bed. It would not sway me from staying again. It was a great location. We were able to walk most places downtown and was capitivated by historic downtown. All the local businesses and locals we talked with, were beyond kind and helpful. Was a wonderful, low key and relaxing stay. Would highly recommend staying in the True house!!
