A tastefully appointed, studio carriage house on quiet alley with lots of light, hard wood floors, efficiency kitchen, and full bath. It comfortably sleeps two and is within two blocks of local favorites Cherokee Park and Bardstown Road.

The Space

The 500 sq-ft apartment is spacious, clean, and uncluttered. There is an unmistakable zen vibe accented with furnishings and artwork from southeast Asia. The full-size bed has super soft sheets and a cozy comforter (additional sleeping arrangements can be made with the sofa, and an air-bed). There is wi-fi internet access. The kitchen includes a coffee maker, microwave, 1/2 size fridge, countertop oven, dual hot plate, and rice cooker.

Interaction with Guests

We will be present in the main house during your stay, and will be able to help with food, activity, and entertainment suggestions.

The Neighborhood

It's hard to overstate how great the neighborhood is. It is very pedestrian and bike friendly. The apartment is within 2-3 blocks of the best local cafe, local bookstore, local videostore, a ton of dining options (including 3 of the best restaurants in Louisville), bars, grocery store, movie theaters, bike shop, vintage goods, and the library. In addition, Cherokee Park is down the street and features hiking & biking trails, golf course, tennis courts, etc.

Getting around

The apartment is a 5 minute drive (10 minute bike ride) to NuLu (East Market Street), downtown, and the downtown hospital district, and 10-12 minute drive to Churchill Downs. Local buses run regularly along Bardstown Rd, two blocks away. If you want to go further afield, the highway is close by and you can easily get to Bluegrass and/or Bourbon country.

  • Juliet's Carriage House is the perfect place to stay when visiting Louisville. It's in a great location, the space is clean and has all the amenities you need, plus the host Juliet is helpful and attentive. Would definitely stay here again when in town. Couldn't recommend it more!

  • We enjoyed our stay at Juliet's carriage house. The location is wonderful. Bardstown Road and all it's restaurants were right around the corner. The carriage house is equipped with all the necessities, fridge, toaster oven, microwave, comfy bed. We would definitely stay there again when we come to Louisville.

  • We had a great time at Juliet's carriage house. We loved it because we could walk everywhere in the Highlands and didn't even need to rent a car. The space itself is perfect for two and is very clean and cozy. You'll definitely be more at home here than you would at any area motel (not that you could even find a motel in this part of town). I would not hesitate to recommend this spot to anyone visiting Louisville. We'll definitely be back.

  • Had a great few days in Louisville, Juliet's place is a lovely place to stay - spacious, private, tastefully furnished and a thoroughly relaxing place to be, wish we could have stayed longer!

    Proximity to bardstown road gives you lots of options for good restaurants and bars and it's just a 10min drive into the middle of town.

  • A perfect spot for a visit to the Louisville area. It was clean and decorated with the style I like. We were walking distance to good food and a beautiful park. Our trip was really short, so the only restaurant we tried was "el camino" great tacos! Cherokee park was a great place for a run!

  • We had a really great time during our stay in Louisville, KY. The carriage house was perfect for our needs and in a really great neighborhood being close to Cherokee Park and lots of great shops, dining and breweries to visit within walking distance. The carriage house was clean and we would highly recommend it if you are looking for a place to stay in Louisville. We will be back for sure for future weekend getaways.

  • We had a great stay at the highlands carriage house retreat. The location was very convenient to everything Bardstown Road has to offer, and is well appointed for longer multi-night stays with a full kitchenette.
