Great little hideaway in our rural county, but right in the middle of our "city" of under 600 people! Towns don't come much smaller than this but you are reasonably close to metro areas like Lexington, Georgetown, Richmond, Louisville and Cincinnati
This renovated home still maintains the turn of the century charm of its origins, with modern amenities to make you comfortable. The first floor features a living room with adjoining rustic bar, complete with neon lights and you can pump up the party with Pandora or iHeartradio!
There is a 32" Smart TV in the living room with basic cable and music channels. Smart TV Channels include Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, Amazon, PBS, NBA, NHL, ESPN, Disney, Pandora, Spotify, Blockbuster and RedBox on Demand, M2Go, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), YouTube and so much more available for your pleasure!
The full kitchen with electric range, full size fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, waffle maker and all of the necessary items awaits your culinary prowess, or if you prefer, allow us to make your home-cooked meals and comfort foods for you!
Behind the kitchen is a dining area/breakfast nook, and the bathroom is on the first floor as well. The second floor is one large room, partially divided, and we can provide a more complete division of the rooms if you so choose. The main room has two queen beds, two dressers, nightstand, clock radio, electric fireplace and 24" flat screen SMART TV with a DVD player for your entertainment. The other side of the divider has an office area with a writing desk, books for you to browse and a cozy twin bed. This makes a great kids room, extra room, etc.
Just outside the upstairs door is a 12x20 deck with seating. Enjoy a starlit night from your 2nd story observatory, and if you choose, you can even sleep under the stars with your own airbed.
A small charcoal grill is available for your use, as are all of the outdoor spaces on our properties. We have a (seasonal) fire pit area, a covered gazebo with a dining table and seating for 6, an umbrella table on the patio that seats 4, and a cute little table for two on the front porch. Subject to seasons, of course!
North Middletown, nestled in the rolling hills of Bourbon County, sits among some of the finest horse farms in the world. Take a tour of the historic and awesome farms, while you're here, or visit one of the many attractions such as the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland, The Red Mile, Red River Gorge, the Ruth Hunt Candy Factory, etc. The list of historic homes, museums and attractions could go on for pages, to see some more, check out Lexington area visitor web sites.
You will be away from the hectic city life, here with us, in a town of less than 600 friendly people. From the house, you are within walking distance of two stores where you can grab a pizza, a beer or some locally made Ale-8-1, hit the tanning beds or do your laundry! Within a 15 minute to one hour's drive, you can do anything you choose! We are 24 miles from Lexington or Georgetown (Toyota is there!) and within 90 minutes you can be in Louisville or Cincinnati, Ohio. Who would have thought you could be so far out in the country and so close to conveniences and metro-life all at the same time?
Guests have access to the entire house! Guests may also use all outdoor features of our home property just across the street as mentioned in the description.
Interaction with guests
Your hosts live nearby the property, close enough to handle any needs you may have during your stay, but we are not on site.
Other things to note
Please note that we are in a RURAL area, with country roads leading to and from. We are in reasonably close proximity to Lexington and other areas but we are NOT in Lexington. We enjoy the tranquil country drive between the metro areas and our home and hope that you will as well. :-)
No smoking indoors, smoking is permitted on the front porch and the upper deck area.
Pets are allowed if you contact us first with the details. There is a $50 non-refundable pet deposit, and you must sign a damage waiver.
We are flexible with arrival and departure times, but in general arrival is 4 pm or later and checkout is at 11 am.
