Wonderful Time! Comfy & Quite place to stay in Louisville
"The Highland Hideaway is a really nice property! My husband and I felt very comfortable at the house and it truly is within walking distance to quite a lot. We didn't use the kitchen much at all due to our short stay and close proximity to restaurants. If you love coffee, I highly recommend walking to Quill's on Baxter! You will not regret spending $5 on the Bourbon Vanilla Latte....promise! Cave Hill Cemetery is within walking distance as well, but if you really want to explore the entire cemetery (over 300 acres)....I would recommend driving. We were fortunate enough to get a personal tour from the cemetery manager on our last day in town. We took a short 5 minute drive across Payne Street to Frankfort Ave and rode the trolley for free (until 10pm) during FAT Friday (last Friday of each month). Lots to do and see in/near The Highlands...
One caution: If you are 6' or taller, be careful of the low doorway going into the bathroom. My husband is 6' 4" and hit his head quite a few times on the door frame. It was comical for me since I'm 5' 6" and cleared it with no issues at all! Oh! Another caution.....once inside the house, do not walk out/shut the front door without the key. The door will lock once shut so you MUST have the key to regain entry. We didn't get locked out, but I can easily see someone shutting the door to unload their car, just to turn around and find yourself locked out of the house.
Sarah was really easy to work with and very responsive/timely in her messages back about the house location and access code, etc. I did not need to contact her while at the house since everything was pretty self explanatory once we got there."

"Stayed here for the first time while taking our son to Asbury. Located close to the college and very convenient. Owners made us feel at home with cookies and other snacks waiting for us when we arrived. The rental is very well equipped and has all the comforts of home. Will certainly stay here again when we make visits to the college."

"I cannot say enough great things about this place. It truly was heavenly. Coming from a major metropolitan city....I was in much need of the country life. And boy oh boy did I get it! I love the location of this property. I love the look of this property. The owners out did themselves with renovating it. GORGEOUS! The towels were even to die for! Just all the way around superb! I WILL be renting this place again.
*Note to Owner: I would have LOVED if you all had a few bicycles for guests to use. That'd be a nice touch. I would have loved to take a bike ride on an early morning or at sunset.
*Note to guests: DO NOT miss the sunsets!!!! I've experienced a lot of neat places and sunsets....and this one is right up there at the top of my list. Just sit in the Adirondack chairs in the yard and enjoy :-)"
