Amy was a wonderful host and went above and beyond what we expected as far as hospitality. She was flexible with our plans changing prior to our arrival. The house was immaculate, each guest had clean towels and bedding. She was responsive when I had questions about one of the bathrooms. She respected our privacy when we were there but made sure we knew she was available if there were any questions we might have. The house is very cute and in a safe, beautiful neighborhood. Convenient for Derby.
Great historic house, no clutter, super clean. Breathtaking neighborhood and beautiful garden. Had a great time! Amy was very friendly and accommodating. Would stay here again for sure!
Gorgeous and spacious house! Amy was everything you would hope for in a host. 6 out of 5 stars!
Amy's home is amazing and was the perfect place to stay for the Derby weekend! They went above and beyond to make things welcoming and comfortable for us. Plus, it's literally right down the road from one of the Churchill Downs' shuttle points. Highly recommended!
