Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Had a great experience staying there. The place was very spacious and clean and beautifully decorated. Peg and her husband were very nice and welcoming. They made sure we had everything we needed, including fresh towels. I highly recommend this carriage house for anyone traveling to Louisville. I definitely give this place a 10/10!

  • Wonderful experience. Peg was a gracious and accommodating host. The neighborhood is beautiful and so close to parks and city entertainment. We had everything we needed. Thank you!

  • Staying at Peg's was great. The carriage house was so spacious and perfect for a girls' weekend! Peg greeted us and provided us with some wonderful mojitos with mint from her garden. The house had everything we needed, even simple workout equipment (weights, exercise ball) when we needed to work off some of the great food we ate in Louisville! Her dog, Nellie, was sweet and fun to play with. We also took advantage of the house's wonderful porch, which was peaceful and perfect for drinking morning coffee. The location is ideal - very close to the park, Bardstown Road and just a few minutes drive from downtown. Peg also was very quick to respond whenever we had any questions!

  • Peg was so warm and welcoming. She had mint juleps for us when we got there so we got right in the spirit of the derby. She really went above and beyond to make sure we had a great trip, helping us plan our meals, transportation and see the sights. The location is great! The neighborhood beautiful with lots of restaurant and bars in walking distance. The carriage house was perfect for us, Immaculate and homey. We had a fantastic stay and hope to stay there again for future derbys!

  • Peg was great and accomodating. The space was lovely; very sunny and bright. (There are shades though if you're sleepy!) Gorgeous neighborhood next to a very cool park.

  • Peg is the best! We had a great time staying at the carriage house, and she was extremely responsive and accommodating. The location is perfect, the space was clean and she even has an awesome dog you can play with if you want (which we did).

    I would definitely recommend this space, and we'll be checking to see if it's available the next time we're in Louisville!

  • Peg is a great host and I would highly recommend staying in her carriage house! It's the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway in lovely Louisville. The house is fairly new construction and was very clean and tidy. Two big couches, queen-sized bed, big flat-screen on the wall with HD cable, surround sound system, lots of natural light, nice clean bathroom, great shower, snacks/drinks in the kitchenette, working heat... what more could you ask for!

    It was pretty cold and nasty when my wife and I were there so we couldn't take advantage of the proximity (maybe one block) to Cherokee Park, but we did enjoy the convenience to the Bardstown Rd. area (about three blocks away) which is full of shopping/dining/nightlife options. We are fairly familiar with the city, but we found the location convenient to pretty much anywhere we wanted to go. The surrounding neighborhood is also lovely, full of big historic-looking houses.

    Peg and Stewart left us with our privacy, but were also extremely friendly and accommodating. Peg even offered up her house for better wireless reception, which was nice. Nellie (their dog) was really sweet and made the stay even more homey. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to all.

  • This holiday marked our third year running in staying at Peg's carriage house. She continues to be the most gracious of hosts - making herself available if needed, but also offering privacy. As always, the flat is perfect. Well-appointed, comfortable, close to Cherokee Park and Bardstown Road. The Highlands in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Louisville, so if you're new to Louisville, Peg's place is a true find. I highly recommend a stay with Peg.

  • I can't wait to return to Peg's carriage house! She was the perfect hostess, keeping in touch with me prior to my arrival and answering all the questions I had. The carriage house was an ideal place to stay, so cozy and private. Peg left fruit, candy, snacks, and beverages for me - a great welcome. The Highlands is a beautiful area and to stay in a charming carriage house was a wonderful experience - close to beautiful Cherokee Park and the restaurants and shops of Bardstown Road. Peg's great dog Nellie awaits my return as eagerly as I do!

  • The Bonnycastle Carriage House was a very nice experience. Most times when visiting LUVULLE I stay at the Brown, but the FFA was in town and all reasonable hotels in the area were booked. I found AIRBNB by chance and was happy I did. Peg and Stuart were great hosts and the house was beautiful, quiet and extremely well appointed. Remodeled to the studs, as well as stocked with light snacks and beverages were nice touches. The neighborhood is fantastic, with great proximity to Bardstown road, a bevvy of great bars/restaurants and soft goods, an enormous park and some of L'Ville's most beautiful and safe neighborhoods. Although the cottage was set up as one room, my cohort and I were more than comfortable using the couches as a buffer and creating two semi private spaces to crash. Possibly the most understated part of the stay was the comfy porch off the front entrance which provided an ideal spot for a nightcap. I would highly recommend both the space and the hosts.
