Warm, historic, friendly & responsive host...great experience.

  • 5 of 5

Great location for bourbon & horse farm/track tours. Good restaurants, grocery stores nearby. We were feeling the history of Lexington all around us. House is second oldest in Lexington with good upgrades for comfort. Rebecca was an outstanding, accessible host.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

Historic property with modern conveniences. Plenty of room for adults and children. Enjoyed our stay. Allowed us to take a brief step back in time for the grandchildren to imagine life as it was in the 18th century. Beautiful home.

Historical house

  • 4 of 5

If you like history - you'll enjoy your stay. A large home with great entertaining space. Four nice size bedrooms - one is the converted servant's quarters which has a steep staircase. Three full renovated baths but the downstairs bath only has a tub - no shower . Really more of a 2 1/2 bath home. Enjoyed our stay and the side porch.

grand old house

  • 3 of 5

lovely old house with a few issues. The beds really need to be king size and the bathroom situation was not ideal. I do understand that in historic homes this can be a problem. The website should state that there is only one ensuite shower, toilet. The twin room above the dining room has very precarious stairs to access, and once again no toilet. Rebecca couldn't have been nicer however.

Owner's Response: We are sorry our lovely historic home did not meet your expectations. We thank you for bringing to our attention the details that we will make sure are fully included in our website.

The Hart-Featherston House is the second oldest home in Central Kentucky, built by Nathaniel Hart in the late 1700s, and is close to everything Lexington has to offer! Whether you are coming to town for one of the numerous equestrian events, or just wanting to escape a busy lifestyle, this short-term rental can provide you with the quiet solace you need! Just a few miles from Keeneland Racetrack, Red Mile Racetrack, and Kentucky Horse Park, this location provides you a central location. The Hart-Featherston House is only minutes from downtown Lexington, which contains several local breweries and a very active nightlife. Rupp Arena is a mere six miles away and if you have not visited the shops and restaurants in the Chevy Chase area, it is a must-see. The Kentucky Bourbon Trail is very accessible, as is the scenic route of winding roads that leads through the large amount of beautiful horse farms all around the area. The old Squire Road has become a widely used hiking/walking/biking trail that begins right next to the driveway. You can enjoy some exercise by walking out the front door! Lexington is only 70 miles from Louisville, 25 miles to Frankfort, 90 miles to Cincinnati, OH, and 130 miles to Knoxville, TN.
