Guest access

My home is yours! Please make yourself at home and use whatever we have available for you (see list above).

The neighborhood

My neighborhood is safe, cozy, and charming. I am so close to everything Louisville has to offer. I am within walking distance to bars and restaurants like Monnik, Check's Cafe, The Post, Eiderdown, Finn's Kitchen, and Four Pegs Beer Lounge! I am also close to local parks and the zoo.

Getting around

Bus, Uber, Lyft

Other things to note

For Kentucky Derby weekend, a 3-night minimum is required. Typically our guests will check in on Thursday and check out on Sunday, but it's totally up to you!

As mentioned, I have 5 hens. Assuming it's not the dead of winter and they are not "molting", I'll do my best to ensure there are fresh eggs on hand.

If you'd prefer to stay in one of the most popular neighborhoods in Louisville (The Highlands), I have another listing near Bardstown Rd: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/16374823

I stayed at Jeff's place for five nights for work. It was a very walkable neighborhood and a large and comfy house. Great value, fully stocked kitchen, and very roomy.

Nice airbnb and host. Very available for questions and house was well stocked with coffee and items to prepare your own meals. Beds were very comfy. Convenient to just about anywhere in Louisville. 10 min uber from Churchill and downtown. Near airport too. Chickens outback were fun to watch. :)

This was my 5th stay at Jeff's and everything's still great. There's even a coffee place that opens early around the block now - it was maybe the last thing left I wanted to be able to walk to while staying here. Thanks again, Jeff!

Jeff was great. Very pleasant and easy to communicate with. He even went out of his way to drop off a bike pump so that we could bike around town.

We stayed at the Hen House for the 2017 Kentucky Derby Weekend and could not have reserved a better house. The location was clean and complete and included many more amenities than expected - i.e. coffee, fresh chicken eggs, surround sound, and local Louisville dining/tourism suggestions. The neighborhood has some must-try restaurants and bars like Monnik and Lydia's House. Jeff, as a host, was extremely responsive and available when the porch light bulb needed to be replaced. The Hen House was cluckin' awesome and we highly recommend it!
