The house was great for our purposes. We has a staff retreat but needed to stay close to Louisville. The house was large and open with plenty of meeting and sleeping space for all 11 of us. John was easily available to answer questions.

We had a group of 13 and we were able to spread throughout the house. The house provided kitchen supplies for our own cooking, 11 beds, and a quiet space for our group.

Great stay. House is in a secluded area, full of lots of bed and comfy couches for sleeping. The kitchen is stocked with plenty of items, but for anyone who loves to cook do not be too surprised to not find all items you may want. Would definitely stay here again!

Location was great! Park just a mile away. Cul-de-sac made for daily walks with little grandchildren safe and fun. Seeing deer everyday was exciting. Host was available and responsive when any issue or question came up. We would happily rent the home again.

John was a fantastic host. He made the check-in/check-out process very easy and had everything available upon arrival. The place was great - perfect for our group (10 people) to stay comfortably. We had some issues the first day and John was very accessible and responsive - he took care of the issues almost immediately. John does a great job preparing the place and makes himself fully available to ensure a great stay.
