The Space

Our 1925 two-story-plus-basement Dutch Colonial is located in the desirable Highlands-Douglass neighborhood, 3 quick blocks from Bardstown Road and a straight shot down Bardstown Road to downtown Louisville. We are in the Seneca Gardens area of the Highlands, half a mile to both Seneca and Cherokee Parks (great running neighborhood and park), and a short walk to grocery, post office, margaritas, sushi, farmers markets, and more. It's currently set up to sleep 8-10 plus a baby.

Though the listing price is for the entire home (we stay with family in town when our home is rented), please send an inquiry if you're interested in just a guest bedroom. We enjoy hosting and could probably work something out.

We hire a professional housecleaner for every booking. Keep in mind that the house is almost 100 years old.

Two cars will fit in front of our house on the street. We are one house away from a church parking lot that is available for parking, should you feel more comfortable leaving your car there than on the street. This is a very safe neighborhood, so we always just park on the street.

We are near several major bus routes (Bardstown Road and Taylorsville Road), if you do not have a car (we live car-free).

Less than a mile away:
Kroger, Heine Brothers Coffee, Havana Rumba (Cuban), Safai Coffee, Great Flood Brewery, North End Café, Vines & Wines, Breadworks, Cafe Lou Lou, Loop 22, Dundee Gastropub, Queen of Sheba (Ethiopian), Noodle Shop, Mediterranean Restaurant, Oishii Sushi, Farmers' Market, Morris Deli & Liquors, Sol Aztecas, Homemade Ice Cream & Pie Kitchen, Kern's Korner

1.0-1.5 miles away:
The Bard's Town, Asiatique, Uptown Cafe, Wild Ginger, Cumberland Brews, Seviche, Za's pizza, Cafe 360, Sapporo (Hibachi), Tom Chee (Gourmet Grilled Cheese), many many more.

Churchill Downs: 6 miles
Barnstable Brown Party: 1.3 miles

*Please note for winter bookings: the basement is significantly cooler than the rest of the house. We have multiple space heaters that we use down there, but because it's below ground-level, it requires the space heaters to keep it warm. For summer bookings, the basement room is cool and pleasant, but the house might be better for smaller groups in the winter times.

House Rules

Please do not park in front of the neighbors' houses. They are all really nice, but super-protective of their parking places. There are TWO spots available directly in front of our house. If you have more cars than that, please use the church parking lot that is 2 doors down. Thanks in advance for helping keep our neighbors friendly.

No smoking inside. Smoking is fine on the deck, but please pick up your cigarettes.

Be mindful of the new carpeting in the basement, particularly with muddy shoes please.

No drinks on the piano. Be nice to the guitars, etc., if you play them.
