About Jade Dixon

I moved to KY to inspire my daughters love of horses and help her seek a career in the horse industry. She and I fell in love with this home the minute we saw it as I had been collecting western décor for years. I had outgrown my former home and needed more land for our horses. We have 4 beautiful horses which is why we named the property 4 STAR HORSE FARM. Stormy is a beautiful buckskin Chincoteague pony. She is very gentle horse, a favorite with children and adults alike. Chocolate Chip is a beautiful Appaloosa. 'Chip' has been shown in Lexington horse park, where he has always gotten a lot of attention for his dramatic black on white spots. Marley is a Black quarter horse with a curious personality. Sunny Girl is a roan thoroughbred with an arrow on her blaze. We love our horses. All make the farm unique with a lovely log house with a beautiful horse barn.

Jade Dixon purchased this estate in 2010

Guestbook comments from the manager

It was like I had known Jade forever. Such a delight to talk to and get to know. She was so accommodating. She gave us tips as to what to see and do around Bowling Green. The log house was beautiful and accommodated my husband and, our kids, and grandkids. The grandkids loved standing on the porch watching the horses every morning and night. Since it was our 40th wedding anniversary, I booked Carrie G. a photographer from Sur La Lune out of Bowling Green, to take family pictures. What beautiful pictures with the horses and the log house and the beautiful rolling hills in the background! Memories captured forever!

Exploring Kentucky

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at 4 Star Horse Farm! From the moment we stepped into the home, we were refreshed and encouraged! Wonderfully air conditioned, clean and neat, roomy, and decorated with so many interesting artifacts and pictures. Jade was a warm and helpful host, giving us lots of info on local sites and things for children to do. We loved her horses! We enjoyed seeing them out in the pasture every morning and evening, and she even let us help groom them one evening. My husband and I, our daughter and son-in-law, and two grandsons spent a perfect week in Kentucky "horsing around", visiting Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, exploring some caves, and relaxing at Jade's home. What a great way to experience Kentucky! Thanks so much, Jade! You made our week so special. I would highly recommend Jade's beautiful log home for a taste of Kentucky hospitality in an area close to so many attractions, especially if you are a horse lover!

Lovely property, gracious hostess

  • 5 of 5

We made many happy memories - and a treasured friendship - during our stay at this home. My family (six total, including two octogenarians) was in town for a reunion, antiquing and caving. The owner, Jade, could not have been more gracious and accommodating. We loved seeing her horses every morning, and the secluded location allowed us to greatly relax and enjoy one another's company. The home was very clean and comfortable. We would definitely, DEFINITELY stay here again!

Awesome house

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house it was exactly as advertised! The whole house has a really great layout as it is very private. It is a little deceptive from the pictures as it is really much larger than the pictures show. We found it to be very clean and well maintained. We didn't have enough time to enjoy all it offers but plan on coming back! The owners were really good about making sure we were comfortable and well taken care of.

Wonder kindness in a time of need

  • 5 of 5

I can't enough kind words to say about this owner. I am not sure exactly what dates we stayed as everything is still a blur. Sadly we had an unexpected death in our family and the owner was very gracious to fit us in on very short notice and forego the necessary paper work . She was very kind to call and set up everything for us, so everyone would be as comfortable as possible. She met us at the house at 3:30 in the morning to make sure we knew where everything was. She also went out of her way to stock the fridge with food for breakfast & lunch at no charge for the next day. With family coming from all directions and everyone still in shock she was amazing to help us with directions to everything. The house is set up with different areas for us talk and have privacy. After the funeral everyone came back to the house and stayed until the wee hours of the morning. It is very easy to get to and plenty of parking for everyone. It was a blessing to have found both this house and this owner. She was very sweet and considerate in our time of need. Thank you so much!!

Headline Wonderful Vacation Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

With a family of 3 boys and meeting relatives from Indiana and Ohio this was the perfect place for all of us. So many attractions close by for both the kids and adults! Everyone loved seeing the horses and my sons got riding lessons from Barbie. (They haven't stopped talking about the horses since) My husband and I have stayed in several vacation properties and this one exceeded our expectations. It is very well maintained, beautifully decorated and was one of the cleanest places we have ever stayed in! The bedrooms are large and 3 nice sized bathrooms. Perfectly accommodated our large group of 12. The pictures don't do it justice. Shortly after booking, I received a personal call from the owner. She just wanted to know if I had any questions about the property or area and to let me know she would be sending me some information about things to see and do in the area.......now that's quality customer service. That list was very helpful. She also was great in making sure everyone was comfortable after we arrived. She also was gracious enough to take pictures of our whole gang for our FB friends!!! This house is in a perfect location. Very nice, quiet setting and perfect for taking walks. We spent time antique shopping and sightseeing in Smiths Grove and Bowling Green. We spent a day in Nashville taking in the sights but it was so great to leave the hustle and bustle of the big city behind and take the 35 min trip back to the house for some peace and quiet. We also drove less than an 20 minutes to visit the Corvette Museum (trade-off for the antique shopping). Everyone loved Mammoth Caves and KY Action Park! This place is convenient to so many things. We had a wonderful time and plan to return. I would highly recommend this property. In my opinion, you will not find a cleaner, more well maintained property where you will receive such excellent customer service from the owners. We plan on going back just the two of us for a romantic weekend soon!

Frances Biegar review

  • 5 of 5

After staying in B&B'S over many years our friends recommended Jade's property. It was our 1st time using Homeaway. I highly recommend both Homeaway and this home. The whole experience was a delight! The house was just as advertised. Clean, comfortable and relaxing even with 18 of us in our group. The owner was very hospitable. She was great to make sure we were happy with everything. We were preparing to cook on the grill when finding the gas tank had been emptied. She replaced it in under 15 minutes. With a great stay & perfect customer service we are planning to do this annually. Thank you so much!
