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.

Guest Access

Guests will have full access to the Carriage House apartment, and may also cut flowers and vegetables from the garden.

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.

House Rules

No pets. No smoking anywhere. Not inside, not on the balcony, not under the window, and not butts left in the trashcan.

Guests may cut flowers and vegetables from the garden, and use the backyard, but if you use the trampoline, it is at your own risk.

There are no quiet hours, per se, but the Highlands Carriage House Retreat is located in a residential neighborhood, and we ask that you be respectful of our neighbors.
