"I spent Memorial Day Weekend at Dana and Brian's place with a group of 7 people, and everything was top-notch. Located on a quiet street corner, the house was enormous" -- Danny"Dana was actively in communication with me from the moment I booked the home and was more than accommodating throughout our weekend there. If you have a group staying in Louisville, book with Dana!!" -- Sara

Making a trip to attend the Kentucky Derby is one thing but a trip like this is taken to a whole new level when you do it with friends. Jim and I are so fortunate to know Dana and Brian and when we planned on going to Louisville for the big event, we knew we wanted to stay at Da…

A beautiful historic home! Very spacious and very hospitable hosts!! The street traffic was a bit noisy but it is an urban area as listed. The a/c units and fans helped with the noise at night and we were very comfortable!!

I can't say enough good things about our stay at Dana's home in Louisville. It was in a cute neighborhood, walking distance (definitely a quick uber ride) from pretty much anything you could want to do downtown, and the house was amazing. The bedrooms are much bigger than I have …
