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

We can't say enough about this home and the owner! Beautiful home, very well kept, very tastefully decorated, the owner was awesome. Our only complaint is we couldn't stay longer.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. The house was wonderful and had everything we needed. The owner was very helpful with questions about the area, and very understanding when we arrived late due to traveling through bad weather. Will definitely stay here again.

Convenient location on lovely horse farm with plenty of room for all.

  • 4 of 5

This was just what my family needed to meet up for a trip to Mammoth Cave. We were looking for an opportunity to stay together instead of breaking out into hotel rooms. The space was eclectic, obviously someone's primary house, which was a little weird, but Jade was a gracious host and we truly enjoyed our stay.

Private, Quiet, Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jade for sharing your beautiful home with us on this private horse farm. My wife and I, along with our three daughters, really enjoyed all of the amenities and THREE bathrooms. (Did I mention I travel with 4 females.) The location is perfect as it allowed us to travel to Mammoth Cave (Domes & Dripstones Cave Tour), Bowling Green (Lost River Cave Tour), and Glasgow (Family Fun night at Ralphie's Fun Center). All locations were only 15-30 min's away. There is also a small grocery store only 5 min's away if needed in Smiths Grove. Thanks again, we plan on returning!

Owner's Response: We are always appreciate when renters take the time to review and share their experience with others. One of the advantages of visiting caves is the weather isn't a factor. With great trails Visitors to the Mammoth Park hike and ride horses on the more than 70 miles of surface trails, fish and canoe in the Green River, and picnic. The house is 15/20 minutes to Ralphies Fun House with family fun for everyone with bowling, skating, laser tag and a fun family atmosphere. There are 2 grocery stores in Smiths Grove 5 minutes from the house Houchens IGA and Dollar General as well as fruit & vegetable stands from local farmers in the Summer and Amish with lovely homemade goods as well as 13 antique stores!

Spacious, Comfortable Home on the Range

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this unique property. It was a perfect location for attending a family wedding in Smith's Grove, and also for visiting Mammoth Cave.

Beds were very comfortable; all appliances up-to-date and functioning well.

The kitchen tools and dishes, left something to be desired - too much quantity, not enough quality.

The homeowner chose to leave food and condiments left by previous visitors in the fridge and cupboards. I do not agree with this. Abandoned food should be disposed of, or donated somewhere.

The house is FULL of quirky and interesting western art and decorative objects.

Owner's Response: We always appreciate renters take the time to do reviews. The house is fully furnished with everything from linens to cookware. With varying numbers of renters we try to make sure there is enough dinnerware, pots, pans & serving platters to serve large meals. The dinnerware isn't fine china, crystal or silverware but corning ware and flatware enough to serve as many as 20. This is the 1st time anyone has complained about condiments. Like most vacation home owners we do leave condiments for renters as well as pantry items. In a throw away society when most people are conscience of recycling and trying to keep their costs down. We always look at expiration dates and throw out anything that has outlived its shelf life. As well as donate to food banks on a regular basis. If you would like us to remove the condiments please let us know and we will be happy to do so. We will glad to send a list of pantry items so you do not have to buy duplicates and transport in a cooler.

Close to Mammoth Cave

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights during spring break. It is pet friendly so we were able to bring our dog. The owner met us upon arrival and stayed in the apartment in the horse barn out back. The house has everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The master bedroom is on the main level. The two extra bedrooms, and a bathroom, are in the lower level. We were close to Mammoth Cave and Bowling Green. We also enjoyed a fun day with the kids at Ralphie's Fun Center in Glasgow. We would highly recommend this place.
