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 six 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.
-We treat all our guests with the utmost respect and courtesy, and we ask the same from you for ourselves, our home, and our animals.
-Please don't let the cat out under any circumstances (she will try and persuade you).
-Smoking allowed on back deck only.
-Omnivores are welcome to use our kitchen to prepare/store deli and leftover meat products, but please no raw meat in the house.
There was a snow storm on my drive up and I spent 3 more hours in the car than I had planned on. Mark pointed me in the direction of nearby Zanzabar that was within walking distance. The room was nice and clean with lots of thoughtful touches.
They live in a cool neighborhood that reminded me of some of the intown neighborhoods in Atlanta like Cabbage Town. There are lots of places to walk to from their house. It's about 3-4 miles into downtown Louisville. It was an easy, flat bike ride into the city.
I had a great time hanging out with Mark and the other guests in the evening sharing some beverages. I would definitely stay here again.
We had a great experience! They were very welcoming and helpful during our stay. We enjoyed the privacy of our own room. Everything was already laid out and ready for our arrival. Their home is also close to a lot of great local businesses. We would love to stay here again if we are in the area!
Always amazing hosts! I stay with Kristen and Mark every time I'm in Louisville. Beautiful home, amazing people.
Thank you for a quiet nights sleep after an 11 hour drive. The friendly cat met us at the door.
La casa está puesta con mucho gusto, y nuestra estancia aquí fue más como estar en un hotel que en una casa compartida. En la habitación hay una máquina de café, y los anfitriones tuvieron el detalle de poner una jarra con agua y dos chocolatinas. Sin embargo, solamente conocimos a uno de los anfitriones el último día, ya que fuimos a buscarlos para despedirnos. Por tanto, si lo que buscas es alojamiento en un sitio tranquilo y agradable, ¡perfecto!
La segunda noche la otra habitación que también se alquila en la casa estaba ocupada. Se comparte el baño con esa habitación, por lo que esto puede suponer una incomodidad (además de que se escucha todo bastante bien desde la habitación...).
Una última cosita: la cama se hunde bastante.
Great experience! A beautiful home to stay in with gracious hosts. Perfect if you need to be by the university or airport.
I really enjoyed my stay with Kristen and Mark. It was clean, quiet, and friendly. Awesome experience and would highly recommend to anyone!
