  • This is the perfect retreat. Only 15-20 minutes from everything you need. Beautiful relaxing way to end a busy day.

    April 2014
  • This is a great beautiful house, very clean with lot's of amenities.
    I really enjoyed staying there, it;s very secluded. I travel about two months out of the year, this felt like being home for once.
    I would definitely try to rent it again next time that I am in Louisville.

  • John was a good host and the host was perfect for our large family with comfortable beds for everyone. The setting is pure Kentucky beautiful. We enjoyed our stay.

  • John and Bernadette have a beautiful home, and we enjoyed our stay very much! They went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable- above and beyond hosting us as visitors, we were able to complete our short film using their home as a location and they made sure we had everything we needed! They're an inspiration, and we are so blessed and grateful to have met them <3

  • This is a wonderful and spacious home nestled in a peaceful wooded location. It's also an easy drive to almost everything in Louisville. I was traveling with my wife and two young girls in Souther California on short notice to visit a sick family member in Louisville. John was very welcoming, responsive and accommodating. The serenity and beauty of this house gave us great comfort during our trip. I also got to meet John and his lovely wife, Bernadette, who I can now call friends.

  • Great home with natural landscaping! We were cozy on the back screened-in porch. We had 6 people, 2 couples, 2 singles, and had tons of space. We really enjoyed being close to two great parks for running. Home had everything we needed.
