About this listing

The room is well lit, has great energy and is clean and polished. Interior is decorated in Victorian style while the outside has many gardens and places to enjoy the peace and quiet. The most wonderful part of this stay is, it's only 2 miles from downtown Lexington and many area attractions.

Interaction with guests

I work and have a lot of outside activities that I engage in but I am always within a phone call if I'm needed. I eat most of my meals at home, sometimes inviting my guests to share the meal if they would like.

Other things to note

As I am a horse lover, my home favors the horses. I also love gardening and flowers so there is plenty of fresh flowers in your room in season.

Maureen (Irish) is very welcoming and warm. She let us into her house and made us feel at home. She tried to make our stay confortable, and was constanlty checking if there was anything else she could do for us. She is very nice herself, and it was a pleasure talking to her. Thanks Irish for the tasty homemade muffins, both kinds! ;) And for the fresh flowers you prepared for us! Everything was as described, and very clean. The porch was a very nice place to read or hang out for a while in the evening!

The host is a greedy queen!!! She is trying to eat up my rest money around $1200 due to my reschedule.Firstly, I negotiated with her for refunding before my reschedule. She agreed to refund the rest before I changed in Airbnb. However, she refused it the following day. As a result, my rest $1200 will flow into her pocket in her delicate plan. I was Totally cheated by her mind since she is trying to eat my own money up!!! In her eyes, only her life style is correct. If you wont get her yell, you have to follow her timetable and life style since she wakes up at 4:30 am. During my staying, I was tortured in my emotion,mind, even my body due to mosquito and fly. In a word, I was really really disappointed with her mind and style. My heart is bleeding for her. I am seeking the helps from Airbnb and my American express. Thanks for your watching.

It was our pleasure to meet and stay with Maureen during our recent trip to Kentucky. We were in town for a graduation at UK, and Maureen's cozy home is an extremely short Uber ride to campus (and to the Blue Grass Airport). Due to travel delays we arrived quite late in the evening, but Maureen was there to cheerfully greet us, offer us tea (I guarantee that she has your favorite), and to show us around. Before we knew it, we were jamming on the djembe and listening to Afrocelt music! Maureen is charming and fascinating. She has done, and is currently doing, a wide range of interesting things. We thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with her. Her home is inviting, comfortable, and clean. Our room was lovely, the bath was relaxing, and her dog is SO CUTE (hi Gemini!). Charge up with her magnetic water, meditate on her quiet porch, and ask her about horses! Thanks again, Maureen!

I visited Lexington KY with a friend during the Rolex 3 Day Event and we were very happy to find Maureen's welcoming place that was only 15 minutes from the horse park. The house is situated in a very nice neighborhood and it is a wonderfully maintained old building with high ceilings, stained glass windows and a lovely porch with a swing that Maureen invited us to feel free to use. Maureen is a great hostess. The room was perfect and we had breakfast items available along with coffee every morning. She was very mindful of what guests might prefer. We took a lot of time to attend events and visit the town so we were not home a lot, but when we were Maureen was happy to chat with us and share local info. The house is also close to a neighborhood bike-shop/deli with great coffee, sandwiches and smoothies. We stopped by there a few times. I warmly recommend Maureen's place for anyone wishing to visit Lexington.
