Why stay in an overpriced, stuffy hotel when you can stay in our super adorable, recently renovated Cape Cod style house in Germantown! We are a mere 2.6 miles away from Churchill Downs, ensuring that you can get to Thurby, Oaks and Derby with ease. We are also in walking distance to a host of bars and restaurants. Stay close to the Derby action in a neighborhood that is clean, safe, friendly and hip!

The space

The house has a large, airy living room when you first walk in with an abundance of natural light. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed and the second bedroom with a twin bed and roll out trundle bed. Between the two bedrooms is a bathroom with beautiful 1920's style yellow tile.

There is a dining space with a table that comfortably seats four people followed by a nice, open concept kitchen with a 1920's renovated butcher sink.

Upstairs, the entire second floor is the master bedroom and bathroom, complete with a king sized bed and a claw foot tub, jack and jill sinks.

Guest access

The whole house will be yours to utilize and relax in for the weekend. There is a washer and dryer in the basement and a nice porch with a grill and fenced in backyard.

Interaction with guests

We will leave helpful information about the neighborhood including bars, restaurants and emergency services.

Other things to note

Neighbors are great and friendly and it is a family-friendly neighborhood.

No smoking. Outside the house if you must, but please don't toss cig butts in the grass.

If you REALLY need to bring your furbaby, it is ok as we have a doggy door and fenced in yard, but our preference would be a dog free weekend.

We're a young, recently married couple in our late 20's. As such, we like to indulge in good bourbon and food just as much as the next person. However, we're also parents to two human children and two furbabies and we really love our house. Loud, messy parties will not be tolerated. We will have the house sparkling, fresh and clean for you and expect it "returned" in the same condition (minus the vacuuming and mopping and all the stuff we'll do beforehand, obvi). Treat our house and our things like we do and everything will work out just fine.

The pictures of this house don't do it justice! It has so much character and is really beautiful. My friends and I recently stayed here to attend the Forecastle Festival and we couldn't be more pleased. Mackenzie was super thoughtful and left us a lovely (very detailed) note with info about the house and the area. The location is perfect. It's within walking distance to many bars/restaurants and was a very inexpensive uber ride to Waterfront Park where the festival is held. The beds are so comfy. The house is kept very clean and even though it's an old house, it has many modern updates that compliment the house's original charm brilliantly. We were even offered free reign to eat cucumbers and tomatoes from their garden. My friends and I had such an amazing time and were very grateful to be staying in Mackenzie's house. It's a gem and so is she! She left us freshly cut flowers in vases, left bug spray for us on the back deck, and paid so much attention to detail that we've decided that not only do we adore the house; we adore the whole family that lives here. Thank you so much for making our trip the best yet!!!
