Interaction with Guests
I work and have a lot of outside activities that I engage in but I am always within a phone call if I'm needed. I eat most of my meals at home, sometimes inviting my guests to share the meal if they would like.
My neighborhood has like minded green space living in it. We look out for one another and have respect for each other. It is a very quiet neighborhood with very charming houses. A big bonus is the castle up the street with a 35 acre park surrounding it. I have lived here for 9 years and love it.
There is public transportation, via bus service, with the bus stop about a block from my house.
No smoking. Please remove shoes in the house. Floors recently refinished. No eating in the bedrooms. Please use the dining room.
My second time staying with Maureen, and I'm sure I'll be back. Comfy bed, spotless home, lovely host. Thanks, Maureen!
Maureen was a great host! Very personable and friendly. I enjoyed our conversations. Her home was beautifully decorated and the bed was very (VERY!) comfortable. The location was convenient to area attractions/activities (easy to get to downtown, distilleries, the horse park, etc). For breakfast, there was a variety of organic fresh fruits, nuts, oatmeals, granola, yogurt, etc. to choose from. I had a great stay and would definitely like to return next time I'm in town!
It was a great stay! I love the room and the decoration! Maureen is nice and funny!
Maureen is a welcoming and gracious host. Her house is immaculate - one of the cleanest airbnb homes we've stayed in. Our room was quiet and comfortable, and we rested very well. We would definitely recommend Maureen's house as a place to stay if you're visiting Lexington.
It is a rare experience to find a host as caring and thoughtful as Maureen. She was welcoming, solicitous, flexible, very mindful of my needs, and went out of her way to make me feel at home. I enjoyed many wonderful conversations with her and I simply feel that I have a new friend in the world! Her home by the way is beautiful, she has spent years decorating and redecorating every square foot; every room is just delightful to be in, and she keeps the house immaculate. The bed in my room was one of those super comfortable beds that is so comfortable it's kind of hard to get out of in the morning, but when you do you feel rejuvenated. Her house is in a quiet and gentle neighborhood fairly close to downtown but away from the hustle and bustle. This is a wonderful place to stay, and Maureen is truly a great person - I look forward to coming back some day with my family.
This place was wonderful and Maureen a great host. She did everything she could to make our stay comfortable. The house is charming and clean with everything you need. It was like staying with a long time friend.
