Overview

About the property

Farmhouse, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Come stay in our newly renovated 1890's train station in the heart of the bluegrass.

We are on a working thoroughbred horse farm right off Paris Pike, one of the most scenic areas in all of Central Kentucky. Drive by Gainsway and Elemendorf farms on the way to Claiborne farm. 15 minutes to the Kentucky Horse Park, Fasig Tipton, close to Keeneland and the Lexington area attractions.

Hutchison Station was part of the L&N railroad system between 1890-1950, it still has the original hardwood floors, 12' ceilings and much of the original molding. In its heyday it included a post office, livestock loading platform, general store and blacksmith's shop. You can read more about the station house in 'Ghost Railroads of Kentucky'. Many of the original families still live in the area.

Area activities include a 9 hole golf course within walking distance, and a short drive to many 18 hole courses, horse farm tours, historical sites including Shakertown, Mary Todd Lincoln House, Henry Clay Estate, Civil War battlefields and much more.

We have easy access to I75 & I64 and are located 1/2 way between Lexington and Paris.

A wonderful stay in a beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Wycliffe at Steeple Hill far exceeded our expectations. Located in the heart of horse country and run by two gracious hosts - Steve and Lisa - who showed us a lifestyle that we will always remember. Will be back soon!

Lovely get-away in remodeled train station on beautiful horse farm.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved staying on the left side of this lovely remodeled train station that is set on the beautiful grounds of a Kentucky horse farm. We were greeted with pretty red roses and homemade chocolate chip cookies upon entering! What a nice surprise! The living room, kitchen, two bedrooms and two baths were clean and updated. The vaulted ceilings made it seem extra roomy. The beds were comfy and the showers had nice pressure and lots of hot water. The owners encouraged us to feed the two donkeys on the property. We were also made to feel comfortable walking the grounds and petting the horses. They were so friendly and even the babies came right up to us at the fence. What a cool experience! The only small thing that we would say could be improved is to get a full-size refrigerator to replace the mini. Besides that, it was perfect!!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed here for just over a week. The owners were attentive but not invasive. The place was clean and was as nice in person as the pictures reflect online. We ate the majority of our meals at home, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Surprisingly, at the last minute, we needed a hair dryer, iron and ironing board and the apartment had it all! Of course, best of all, the mares and their foals were in the front of the house every evening. Our stay was perfect and we highly recommend this listing.
