Enjoy a bright and spacious air-conditioned second floor to yourself, with a 18 x 18' room with queen bed and private full bath. Located in close-in St. Matthews, a quiet tree-lined area 5 easy miles from the heart of the city, a 2-block walk to the bus stop serving downtown. There are several restaurants, coffee shops, and pubs less than a mile away.
Louisville offers many attractions--historic homes such as Locust Grove and Farmington; the Kentucky Derby, Louisville Slugger and Muhammad Ali Museums; the KY Center for the Arts, and the new YUM! arena. The Shelbyville Road shopping area, boutique-lined Frankfort Avenue, and the hip Bardstown Road and NULU districts are a short drive away.
Three hospitals are within 2 miles (Baptist East, Suburban, and the VA). The Presbyterian and Baptist seminaries are nearby.
The room has wi-fi and a TV with DVD player (local channels, but no cable). There is a coffee maker and tea kettle in the room. Guests may use the kitchen to prepare breakfast or warm up a pizza. If you don't mind going down to a 1946 (unfinished) basement, you may also use the washer-dryer.
I'm an energetic semi-retired educator. I myself like to travel, so I'm participating in AirBnB in order to supplement my own travel budget. I'm a people person so I look forward to welcoming visitors.
No pets, please.
Harriette was an excellent host and provided the perfect accommodations for me while I attended a work conference. The room and house are very pretty, clean, and comfortable. She was always available before and during my stay to answer absolutely any questions. Plus, she is very fun and interesting to talk to. I wish I could have stayed longer to just chat and take a long walk in her beautiful neighborhood. I feel blessed to have met and stayed with her!!
Harriette treated us with such genuine care and made sure that we felt right at home. She stole our hearts with her beautiful personality. Her house is absolutely gorgeous, is in a great neighborhood, and is absolutely clean and cozy! Harriette very generously extended our stay when bad weather prevented us from travelling. We will never forget her hospitality and we will definitely be back to visit. Stay. With. Harriette!
Thanks again Harriette! Recommend her home for anyone visiting Louisville. Convenient to everything we needed. Near St Matthews and downtown. I know we will stay here again. Dan and Cindy.
Thanks to Harriette for allowing my husband and I to stay in her charming home. We sent her into a panic when we sent her a text telling her we would be to her home in 2 hours....we had our dates mixed up. She even went out of her way to try to find us another place to stay in Louisville.
When we finally met her the following weekend she welcomed us in and we laughed about the previous weekend.
Harriette is a great airbnb host and the accommodations are comfortable and private. We had a comfy queen sized bed and our own private bathroom. A coffee maker was available in the bedroom. She allowed storage of our soy milk and beer in her fridge.
Nice conversation in the morning over breakfast. Thanks Harriette! I know we will stay with you again. Dan and Cindy.
Harriette is a wonderful and respectful host. She was helpful with suggestions about where to go in Louisville and her home is located near many great places to eat and drink. My stay was comfortable and relaxing- I would recommend Harriette's home to anyone.
Harriette was a fantastic host! Very attentive and accommodating with tons of useful local information. She definitely knew how to put us at ease for our first airbnb experience.
Her house is beautiful and a joy to stay in. There was a closet and dresser for clothes, a hair dryer and toiletries in the bathroom, and even an ironing board. We especially enjoyed the electric kettle and tea. We had a wonderful time and would recommend her to anyone!
Staying with Harriette was great. She has a lovely home, and the guest room and bathroom were great. She's gathered all kinds of odds and ends to offer you options for entertainment, whether it be books or brochures for attractions around town. I had told her that I was going to be going to the Horseshoe Casino in Southern Indiana on business. When I arrived, she had looked up directions for me, with a map in hand to show me the way. The room is spacious, the bed is firm, the bathroom was clean and supplied with new soap and shampoo, had a tea pot, and bottles of water ready when I arrived. She also is really great about trying to fulfill your every need, whether offering coffee or toast, or whatever else she can think you might want. I had a wonderful experience and would definitely try to stay with Harriette again if and when I go back to Louisville.
Staying with Harriette was in no way, shape or form a typical B&B experience, it was so much more greater and deeper than that and I will undoubtedly fail to fully describe this unique and yet familiar experience. As so many have noted, Harriette immediately makes you feel like you're truly at home, this is the familiarity of the journey, and yet it was quite unexpected and new for she's filled with stories and tales - no movie rentals or TV needed.
Anyone looking for wisdom, laughs, a good ear, hospitality and care that only your mother or those close can give, then stay with Harriette. You will earn a friend for life and learn something new guaranteed!
Harriet was an incredibly gracious and accommodating host. She was great with providing helpful tips and local recommendations. The room is large, comfortable and well-equipped. I would recommend this listing to anyone!
We were extremely happy with Harriette's accomodations. The room was large, bright, very clean, with a lot of nice touches to enhance the visitor's stay. This included plenty of books, videos, travel guides to Louisville and local info brochures as well as lots of drawer and closet space and comfy chairs. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was also large with all the comforts of home and spotless. Harriette herself was a wonderful hostess, very friendly and always trying to make sure you are happy during your stay. Overall this was a great experience for us and we cannot recommend Harriette highly enough. Awesome!
