Really close to Cherokee park. About 15 minute drive to downtown. I didn't realize there wouldn't be a stove in the kitchen, but that's probably my fault for not paying enough attention.

This was close to everything we wanted! A terrific park for exercising or playing, Bardstown Road with lots of great restaurants, 10 minutes to U of L, 10 minutes to downtown. A great spot!

This lovely and spacious apartment over the owners' garage makes for a comfortable place to stay in a neighborhood that's close to attractions but just secluded enough to be quiet. Walkable to the hip Bardstown Road area, and a quick drive to downtown. Parking spot is a tight squeeze, but doable for most vehicles.

Peg is amazing and made everything very easy. This location and place was great and allowed us to access the park for cycling nationals. We also were able to walk 3 blocks to bradstown road for amazing food and coffee shops. I give this experience a 10 plus!!

The place was in a fantastic area the houses in that area look like castles or mansion home my brother Mike and I really enjoyed after our long drive. The home was nice and clean. Parking pad worked out very well. The dog was very friendly and even stopped by our front door to greet us while we enjoyed our morning coffee. We decided to try a local restraunt for breakfast "Highland Morning" is a must if your in the area. Definetly would stay here again if in the area. Thanks Peg
