The Space

After one full year hosting visitors to Louisville through AirBnB, we've decided to open up a second room for guests!

The "Kentucky Room" (this listing) shares a Jack-and-Jill style bathroom with our "Blue Room." Parties larger than two guests are welcome to book both rooms when available.

Our home is close to many Louisville attractions and conveniences:

- 2.4 miles to SDF airport
- 1.9 miles to historic Churchill Downs (Kentucky Derby)
- 3 miles to Downtown Louisville
- 2.8 miles to Bardstown Road (shopping and restaurants)
- 4.5 miles to the new and exciting East Market Street (also called NuLu: shopping, restaurants, art galleries)
- 0.2 miles to the bus stop

Within walking/biking distance of our home are gourmet coffee shops, hip bars, and good restaurants. We're foodies and we'll be happy to give you plenty of recommendations.

We love animals and we hope you do too! We have two friendly indoor cats, and four backyard chickens that provide us with fresh eggs daily --you are welcome to partake! During the summer, you're also welcome to share produce from our vegetable and herb gardens.

We decided to be hosts after using Airbnb to travel to Montreal, Vermont, Atlanta, and Chicago. We loved the experience of meeting new people and getting insider recommendations on places to visit and eat. Our adopted hometown of Louisville is a truly unique place, and we'd love to share all it has to offer.

Send us a message about special weekly and monthly rates. We would be happy to work something out with you.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We loved our stay with Kristen and Matt. The house was lovely and very conveniently located. We spent time with the cats, chickens, and watching the bees. The house was clean and the bed made for a great night's rest. We would definitely stay here if in Louisville in the future.

  • Great little room. We had a car but the house was handy to town which was really easy to use. Unfortunately we didn't meet Kristen but mark was a super friendly host and gave us some great local recommendations. Real comfy room and amenities too. So nice to met you and your furry/ feathered friends :)

  • Mark was a great host! The room was clean and exactly as described. Neighborhood was safe, and I was able to park my rental right out front. They are located a 15 min walk from a very cool bar where I happened to catch a show by one of my favorite bands unexpectedly! I would definitely recommend this location in Louisville!

  • The room was as advertised, Mark was welcoming and helpful about getting around Louisville as well as sending us to Big Four Bridge - a former railroad bridge that spans the Ohio River and affords changing views as you walk up the gentle spiral to the bridge itself. He suggested a Farm-to-Table restaurant, Harvest, that was very good. The neighborhood of small homes was quiet and well-kept. We liked the backyard chickens and the beautiful beehive in the garden.

  • Nice room, Nice hosts ! I went to Kristen & Mark's house only for 1 night. The Room and the bathroom are clean, and the place is very quiet.

  • We had a great experience with Kristen and Mark. We didn't see them unfortunately because of how tight our schedule was coming into Louisville and how late we got back to their place that evening.

    They had left their key in the mailbox for us, and when we got back for the night the room was exactly as listed. They had an information sheet explaining everything about their place, the checking out process, you name it. This was very helpful since we didn't get to meet face to face.

    They live in a really cool area of Louisville, and have an awesome home. I got to see their bee house and chicken in the backyard in the morning before I left.

    I would definitely come back and stay with Kristen and Mark, and hopefully this time get to meet them! Thank you again for your hospitality.

  • We had a wonderful stay with Mark & Kristen in their charming Louisville home. The location is fantastic for exploring the area & is very close to Nord's bakery - home to some of the best donuts I've ever had. Although we were out & about most of the time we were in Louisville, we did take some time to enjoy Mark & Kristen's awesome back yard. The bees & chickens were truly fascinating to watch! Our stay was great & we would definitely recommend it if you're looking for a laid-back, comfortable place to call home while taking in the sights.

  • My days at the Urban Farmhouse and in particular with Kristen and Mark were wonderful. The Kentucky Room and the bathroom were very clean and everything that was promised and mentioned in the house description was provided. I liked their house and the location was perfect. They made my stay special. I highly recommend this airbnb place and I would love to come back next time when I am in Louisville.
