Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, 1000 sq ft

Our apartment is the perfect location, it is a great place to hang your hat when you're in town for a game, a race, graduation, or any other event in Lexington. Why fight for parking, when you can walk to the best restaurants in Lexington or see the Cats beat the competition at Rupp! Don't stay at hotel, when you can enjoy all the comforts of home and still be in the heart of everything. Don't forget to book for Transy and UK graduations, concerts, Rolex Event, Equestrian Auctions, or just a weekend tour of the Bourbon Trail. Feel free to contact us for any other information regarding Lexington and the surrounding area. We look forward to making your stay memorable!

Downtown Lexington: Lexington is probably best known as as being home to the University of Kentucky (Go Cats!). Boasting the largest indoor college venue, Rupp Arena can seat over 24,000 people. This makes for not only the best college basketball games in the US, but also a huge range of other activities. Concerts, shows, exhibitions, and much more consistently make Rupp a top stop on their list.

The Downtown area also has a broad range of restaurants, bars, and clubs that meet the tastes and desires of everyone. We have plenty of recommendations so please ask!

Our property is 0.5 miles from EVERYTHING. Once you check in, you can literally stroll down Broadway, and within minutes have all of these activities at your fingertips!

The Bluegrass: Lexington is known as the 'Horse Capital of the World', but few realize how much it truly has to offer. Home to many of the most famous horse farms and breeders, Lexington draws people from all over for events and activities throughout the year. The Bluegrass provides a unique atmosphere of plenty to do in a serene environment. Keeneland and the Red Mile host horse races and other equestrian events throughout the year. The Kentucky Horse Park has spectacular equestrian museums and exhibits, and hosts a number of events. In 2010, Lexington hosted the World Equestrian Games for the first time on US soil! The Bourbon Trail is home to the best whiskey in the world (my opinion of course) you can tour, taste, and learn about the world of Bourbon. Check out one of our favorites, Four Roses!

Historic Lexington: Lexington has so much history it's impossible to touch on it in a home-away advertisement. This property is protected by the Lexington Historic Society, and is listed on the National Historic Registry. Built in 1890's it was home to Asa McGinnis, the owner of a local grocery store. It was converted into a small grocery store in the early 1900's and around 1925 was converted to a rental property. Over the few past years we have painstakingly renovated the entire complex. While preserving the historic feel, it is now upgraded with all modern amenities and the comforts expected today.

Convenient aerie

  • 3 of 5

Steep flight of stairs not well lit at bottom and in middle. Apartment was cutely decorated and cozy. Kitchen floor around trash can sticky. Bathroom was not cleaned properly.

Overall ok. Very convenient to downtown.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

It was a very nice, well appointed apartment with a great location. About a 15 minute walk to the downtown bars. Plenty of space for the four of us. Shower is a little small.

Spacious, clean, centrally located

  • 3 of 5

We were three adults in Lexington for four days. Among our activities were trips to Keeneland, Kentucky Horse Park, Lakeside Golf Course and downtown Lexington, and this location was convenient to all. The apartment was perfect for our needs, providing a spacious, fully equipped kitchen, two bedrooms (also quite spacious) and living room (cozy). The single bathroom was small but bright and adequate. All rooms had high ceilings and lovely, natural window light. The entire space was clean, well-maintained and equipped with all essentials. Outdoor amenities were limited. The house is located on busy and architecturally beautiful old Broadway Ave, enabling a quick walk to some wonderful downtown restaurants and bars with photo ops along the way. If you are a light sleeper, you'll want to opt for the rear bedroom. Traffic runs late into the night.

Great Apartment in the heart of downtown

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice 2 bedroom, one bath apartment for us the week that we spent in Lexington. There was 3 adults, and one toddler. There was more than enough room for all of us. I will say that this is a upstairs unit, so if you have people that struggle with stairs or are older, then it is something you need to consider. The other negative, is that if you aren't used to living close to a downtown area, the local hospital was down the street, so you end up having a lot of fire truck and ambulance traffic down the road that the main bedroom faces. Other than that, this place was perfect. Abby was great working with. She responded quickly and everything was made very clear on check in, and check out. I don't see us coming back to Lexington anytime soon, but we would stay here again.

Lovely part of Lexington

  • 5 of 5

This house was in a great part of Lexington, KY. Super close to all the great restaurants and night life. The house was more than big enough for our party of six. Clean, well taken care of and the beds were awesome. Would highly recommend this place to anyone going to visit Lexington .
