The Space

Midlane Farm built around 1820 is the home of Chas and Kim-Laramore Stephens. Lovingly maintained and restored by Chas and Kim and the generations preceding them the home is nestled on two acres of urban ground that has always been owned by the same family (Hikes, Hunsinger, and Stephens). Placed on the national register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior in 1970 the home is full of Louisville and Kentucky history which Chas and Kim kindly share with their many guests.
The main house has three beautifully decorated large bedrooms. You may rent 1 or all 3. Because of the age of the home we have one full bath upstairs (very nice with a 1913 claw foot tub and a modern shower) and a powder room downstairs. Relax in the parlor which was updated in 1880 in the then popular Victorian style, watch TV in the living room in front of a fire, sip bourbon on the back porch, share a story in the lower kitchen (which some folks have deemed the best single room in the city of Louisville) in front of a roaring fire. Whether your are coming to town on business, pleasure, or a major sporting event the hospitality you will receive at Midlane Farm will be unsurpassed.

  • If you have the opportunity to come to Kentucky, STAY HERE. Midland Farm exceeded our expectations in every way. The home is loved, perfectly kept, cozy beds, soft towels, dreamy landscape and plenty of space.

    We came here for a wedding and to see Kentucky, but spent most of our free time at Midlane Farm and with our amazing hosts, Kim and Chas. There a more than a few places to steal away and read a book, enjoy a hot cup of coffee or just relax. The home is beautifully furnished and you really feel like you are stepping back in time. The land around the Farm is gorgeous. We loved strolling around the property and admiring all the special touches and massive trees.

    Kim made us breakfast during our stay and she is quite the cook. Great food, good hot coffee and a great back porch to sit and eat your breakfast on. You'll also have to ask about Chas' hot sauce. My new addiction.

    This location is not far from town. We went to several great restaurants and bars that were about 10 to 15 min away.

    If we ever find ourselves back in Kentucky, there is no other place we'd rather stay. Great family, excellent hosts, clean and beautiful property, peaceful and relaxing stay. What else could you ask for?

    Thanks, Kim and Chas!

  • Midlane Farm is a gorgeous, historic respite in the middle of Louisville. The hosts, Kim and Chas are welcoming, helpful, and great to hang out with. Sitting in the lower kitchen with a fire roaring, a glass of wine, and Rufus in the chair is great.

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.
