The space

Years ago in the early 19th Century some people's homes had a room, typically with it's own separate entrance in which folks passing through had a comfortable place to rest for an evening or short stay. This room was known as the "traveler's room" or "traveler's quarters". Come and stay in the "travelers quarters" at Midlane Farm. Adjoined but separate from the main house your quarters is quiet and cozy, appointed with antiques including a 200 year old cannonball bed (don't worry it's sturdy), a small but efficient bathroom and a television. Relax on the back porch with an iced tea or julep and dream of days gone by, stroll the garden (organic) and grounds, cook from the garden if you wish in the modern main kitchen, sit and watch your favorite TV program or read a book in the "lower kitchen" (which some have deemed the best single room in the city of Louisville), enjoy complementary Bourbon or cocktails. The bar at Midlane Farm is always open and always well stocked! Hospitality would not be complete without towels, linens, and breakfast. If you need room for more than two no problem. You can stay in the main house and we'll move to the traveler's quarters! Please contact us first though to ensure that we don't have any conflicts. The main house (Midlane Farm 1820 Federal Home) can easily host six, but also rents individual rooms. Let us share our passion for the preservation of this "grand ole dame" with you. Sleep tight at your old Kentucky home. Good night.........

Midlane Farm was a beautiful, peaceful place to stay! My room and attached bathroom were spotless. The ambiance was very warm and calming. I loved the historical aspects of the house and the cool antique pieces on display. Kim and Chaz were so friendly and I enjoyed talking with them over a glass of wine upon my arrival. It meant a lot that they took the time to welcome me and make me feel comfortable! I would absolutely recommend staying here.

While the room is in an historic house with a ton of character. The hosts were truly what made this stay enjoyable. From having the room ready with almost no warning, this was not just a place to put my head. The couple who live here are very genuine individuals who truly care about those around them, this is almost unheard of in all my travels. I stayed two evenings and spent the time learning from and enjoying the hosts company. It was wonderful, they did not mind if I did my own thing or spent time with them. The room was furnished with everything I need and then some. A private entrance to my room and parking. I would definitely recommend this room to other business travelers like myself, a welcome break from the Hilton’s and Marriotts of the world.

I hope Chaz and kim’s Place is always available when we need to travel thru Louisville because now that we have found them we know we could not find another place that suits our needs as well! And we always get a great night’s sleep and a great breakfast.

Kim and Chas were wonderful hosts. The room was exactly as described and pictured, and the house and property are beautiful. Kim and Chas were very helpful with anything we needed, taught us about antique auctions, and had a delicious breakfast ready every morning. They are great people and great hosts. Would stay with them again in a heartbeat.

Chas and Kim Laramore-Stephens are owners/caretakers of Chas' family home "Midlane Farm" built in 1820 and never out of the immediate family. Working on the home be it inside or out are the passions of Chas and Kim. Tending the vegetable and flower gardens and consuming and sharing the fruits of their labor gives the couple much pride and happiness. Both professionals Chas and Kim have other jobs as well. They own and manage a local distribution company of consumable paper and packaging products. Kim's hobbies are all that is southern, hailing from Mississippi and Georgia she cherishes the southern lifestyle of hospitality and graciousness. When not working on the "farm" Chas is a competitive sailor racing sailboats wherever the competition takes him.
