Description

The space

Located in the hip Highlands neighborhood, this private luxury apartment offers a full kitchen and bath, vaulted ceilings, and master bedroom with queen size bed. Character, charm and convenience in Louisville, KY. Come and stay awhile.

The treetop apartment is filled with skylights and has its own rooftop deck. It has a staircase up to the apartment that is sturdy and quite lovely. It's an easy five-minute walk to dozens (really, we mean dozens) of coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, and art galleries. You're also close to Cherokee Park and on the edge of downtown Louisville. This home was built in the 1880s for a steamboat captain on the Ohio River. Heart of pine floors, exposed brick chimneys, air conditioning, full-size refrigerator, microwave, smoothtop electric range and fully equipped kitchen.

Separate living room features full-size sofa, books and board games, 40-inch flatscreen TV with Blu Ray player, cable TV, Amazon TV, Netflix and other streaming channels for all your favorite movies and shows.

Two traditional beds, one pillow-top queen and one double. Additional guests sleep on foldout futon.

Wake up in the morning, relax on your treetop deck, then walk to breakfast at a local restaurant or coffee shop (see our guide book for details). Return in the evening for drinks and dinner, and shopping at art galleries and boutiques. The Original Highlands neighborhood is a mecca for eclectic and independent local culture. This apartment is just two blocks from the Baxter Avenue and Bardstown Road corridors, which include Molly Malone's, O'Shea's, Wick's Pizza, Jack Fry's, Quill's Coffee, Holy Grale, Heine Bros Coffee, and much more.
We love hosting guests in Louisville, whether it's one day, a week, or longer.

Check out our Guidebook for our suggestions on local (and mostly walkable) drinks and eats.

Make sure to read the house info that comes after you book. It has all the info you need.

Our neighborhood is full of charm and character. Expect big Victorian style houses, big trees and many areas to get pleasantly lost.

Get around on foot, ride the public bus called TARC with several stops close to the house, take a cab or use Uber. All parking in this area of the city is on the street but free. It is easy to find a spot and safe.

Great spot! This was the third Airbnb stop on my road trip and was by far the best. Great amenities and close to shops and restaurants. The porch was amazing and communication was great. I would absolutely stay here again!

We had a fantastic time at Jen and Alex's place. Their space is so unique- quiet, private and relaxing, but also walking distance to everything we needed while we were in town. Would totally stay again!

We had a great stay at Jen and Alex's treetop retreat. Everything was exactly as described. Communication was excellent. Jen even made a Kentucky Derby welcome pack for us.

It was lovely! Be prepared for the hike up the back stairs, though - can be a little rough with luggage.

We are happy to have the chance to host folks in our home! We have lived in the Highlands neighborhood of Louisville since 2003. We love sharing the River City with visitors. We are happy to give advice about where to eat, drink, and play (climb, bike, run, camp, yoga) in Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
