Overview

About the property

Saddlestone Cottage is an old family farm house that's been totally renovated and offers all new amenities. It's in heart of horse country, but close to Kentucky Bourbon Trail, Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland, Equus Run Vineyards, Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Farm, historic Midway, Lexington, Georgetown, Frankfort and Louisville. Excellent dining choices are close by in Midway, Lexington, Georgetown and Frankfort. You also have the perfect front porch view of picturesque Equus Run Vineyards, located just across the road, and access to South Elkhorn Creek. Have a cup of coffee on the front porch and enjoy the sunrise over the vineyard.

Saddlestone Cottage, easily accessible from I-64 via two exits, is situated on 15 acres on a beautiful country road nestled in the midst of thoroughbred horse farms. Guests have access to the entire house. Feel free to walk throughout the 15 acres, read a book on the front porch, fish down at the South Elkhorn Creek, put your kayak in the creek, or relax on the back covered patio. Each of the three bedrooms has a new queen bed and private full bath. Bed linens, towels, basic toiletries and hair dryers are provided. The kitchen is fully functional so you can enjoy cooking tasty creations or just opting for a cup of coffee in the morning. A full laundry room is off the kitchen area. The living and dining area is a wonderful co-mingled space with views out to the vineyard. The house is comfortable, cozy, and updated.

For Kentucky Bourbon Trail Explorers--

This is the perfect spot to stay if you're working your way through the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Five of the distilleries are less than 25 miles away; the furthest is 75 miles away. Several craft distilleries, breweries and wineries are also nearby. In just a few short day trips you will be able to take in the trail and hit some other spots as well!

For Horse Lovers and Racing Fans--

Saddlestone's neighbors are thoroughbred farms including Glencrest, Audubon, and Margaux farms. Zenyatta, a Breeder's Cup favorite, resides at Lane's End Farm, and triple crown winner American Pharaoh is at Coolmore's Ashford Stud--both in Versailles, which is a short 15 minute drive away. Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Farm is 5 minutes away and Keeneland and the Kentucky Horse Park are each about a 15 minute drive.

For History Lovers--

You'll want to visit Ashland, the estate of Kentucky's greatest statesman, Henry Clay, and the Mary Todd Lincoln home. Both are located in Lexington. Dr. Thomas Hunt Morgan, the father of modern day genetics, was born in Lexington and was the first Kentuckian to win a Nobel Prize. The Hunt-Morgan House, located in beautiful, historic Gratz Park, is also open for tours. On the Frankfort side, you can visit Daniel Boone's grave in the Frankfort Cemetery or take in a tour of Rebecca Hunt Candy.

For Foodies and Gastronomes--

It's a definite--you will not go hungry! Lexington, Midway and Georgetown have an amazing array of non-chain, independent restaurants. There's farm-to-table, southern infused, time-honored recipes to the latest culinary trends, the restaurant scene is sure to impress.

So, relax and enjoy the perfect home base for touring the Bourbon Trail, visiting Keeneland, taking in historical sites or enjoying a glass of wine on the front porch swing. This is the perfect country retreat while being close to everything!

Perfect place for the bourbon trail.

  • 5 of 5

Pamela's house is very nice and comfortable. It was great for 3 couples, close to Lexington and many of the bourbon distilleries we wanted to visit. We had a great stay and I recommend it highly.

Beautiful property and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Saddlestone Cottage with two friends over a long weekend. The home is even nicer than it looks in the pictures! Newly and very nicely renovated while holding on to the charm and character of this Kentucky cottage - even has a full bath for each of the three bedrooms which is unusual in an older home like this. Beds were very comfortable. And the setting is just gorgeous! Pamela was very responsive and made everything easy for us. Make sure you check out the winery and their beautiful grounds right across the street!

Three-couple perfection in bourbon and horse country!

  • 5 of 5

Three equally appointed master suites are a rarity (believe me, we looked and had agreed we would book this property even if only two couples were able to travel together). Saddlestone Cottage met our needs/wants and then some! The location was spot-on for reaching any destination on the KY Bourbon Trail and exploring horse country. We loved the porch sitting in the early morning and again as we wrapped up the day's adventures while looking out over the vineyard in the evenings. And Equus Winery was so convenient! The six of us all agreed -- we would book it again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Pamela, for creating such a gem of a home away from home in Saddlestone.

Great accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Saddles tone cottage was the perfect fit for our getaway. With 5 adults (2 couples) it was great to have our own bathrooms and space. We toured around each day but came back to the cottage to eat supper and relax. It was a fantastic mini vacation. The kitchen was well equipped to prepare meal as well as the all the rooms, bedding and towels were first class. We look forward to our next trip to Kentucky and stay at Saddlestone again!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house just outside of Lexington. Easy driving to Keeneland Horse Track, Buffalo Trace, Woodford Reserve, Four Roses distilleries. Very secluded so no neighbors to bother or get bothered by. Perfect house for 3 couples to enjoy Central Kentucky.
