This is a great 3 bedroom place for friends or a family traveling to Louisville. It has a big kitchen, common area, and parking. It only has one full shower and a tiny smaller bathroom but otherwise was great for our group. Gorgeous neighborhood.

Some friends and I stayed at Racing Silks while attending a conference at the University of Louisville. The house was excellent! There was plenty of room, everything was clean, and the house was charming and quite comfortable. The location and neighborhood made walking to the university and back a pleasure. Thanks!

It's a nice historic property with high ceilings, vintage floors, and Derby décor. The location is very central to the city and easy to get around from. The neighborhood has older homes with lots of mature trees and feels relatively safe. There is some airport noise (but not too bad) and a few crazy cars driving down the alley that abuts the property but otherwise it's pretty quiet. We loved the location and convenience. With a few updates to the living room furniture and kitchen, it could be a truly amazing property!

I stayed in John's carriage house for 5 weeks for work. 5 weeks is a long time to "find" things you dislike or annoy you about a place you are staying. Truthfully, I didn't really find a thing. I loved it. Easy to park, great space with great light. It's actually much bigger than the photographs allow you to see. Great location, clean, comfortable beds, great kitchen. Honestly, if I were to come back to Louisville, I would do it again.

This house was perfect for our stay to attend Forecastle Music Festival. It was a short Uber ride to everywhere we wanted to go. Eric lives nearby and was there to help if we needed him. I would definitely use this house again in the future.

The place was perfect, exactly what we were looking for. Plenty of room and centrally located in great Old Louisville neighborhood. Really liked the yard as well. John was very helpful and made great recommendations. Would definitely stay here next time we make a trip to L'Ville. Thanks John!
